The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

Black Desert Online’s Free Mediah Expansion Launched

When we sent Steven Messner into Black Desert Online [official site], he came out gushing about the MMORPG... then telling us how to build a production empire. It was not a small game, and it quickly became even bigger only a month after launch. Last week saw the release of the 'Mediah' expansion, a huge free update adding the eponymous new region to make the…

Black Desert’s Character Creator Is Now Standalone

Black Desert [official site] is a Korean MMO that's prompted a surprisingly large amount of excitement from the MMO players I know. That's not entirely due to the character creator, but that is the main focus of my own interest, since it allows you to poke, prod, stretch and smooth each face in umpteen different ways, creating monstrosities like that above. Now you can do…

Black Desert Closed Beta Launches, Has Character

Black Desert Online [official site] is an MMO about sprightly, perfect-skinned warriors doing battle with various grimy monsters. The latter part looks fine, but it's the enormously detailed character creator that let's you influence those sprightly fighters that makes it interesting to me.

Black Desert: Charming Smiles And Fast-paced Slaughter

I'll admit that I don't know much about Black Desert, my grasp of Korean largely starting and ending with the output of Joon-Ho Bong, but I'll also admit that I like a lot of what I'm seeing in the MMORPG's new trailer. Alice posted waaay back in April about the game's character creator, which is a frankly glorious thing offering a range of customisation I've…

Dreamranger: Black Desert’s Remarkable Character Creator

My favourite part of every MMORPG is almost inevitably its character creator. EVE Online aside, I've found styling virtual dolls more fun than their attempts to hook me into dull lifeless worlds and dreams of becoming a hero. A good character creator is worth the download alone and oh my, I'll certainly give Black Desert a go if it comes westward. A new video from…
