The best strategy games on PC

Whether you want to conquer the depths of space, wage historical warfare or hulk around in big mechanical robots, there's…

Feature: It 'aint easy beating green

The RPG Scrollbars: Back To World of Warcraft: Legion

Like many, my relationship to World of Warcraft [official site] has shifted over the years, from second home (though never second job, unlike many) to an occasional jaunt to go catch up with my Undead Mage and see the latest fun stuff and twists and turns in Blizzard's ongoing demonic soap opera. Sure, it's a theme park, but so's Disneyworld. I like making return trips…

The RPG Scrollbars: Invasion – Azeroth (And Others)

As many hours as I've spent playing them over the years, MMORPGs always fill me with a touch of sadness for what they could have been. I'm thinking of the original optimistic dreams of people like Richard Garriott, talking of his world where players accidentally killing too many sheep would draw the wrath of a nearby, now hungry dragon, back in that innocent time before…

The RPG Scrollbars: Azeroth’s Ragequit Referendum

Dateline: Year 634 by the King's Calendar. Azeroth's political woes go from bad to worse as the continent of Kalimdor continues its push for official separation from the Eastern Kingdoms. "Our citizens grow weary of being mixed in with some grand political empire that increasingly does nothing for them," complains Troll leader Hyjal Farage. "With this vote, we will prove our independence once and for…

The RPG Scrollbars: The RPGs Of 2016

The holidays are now over, and it's time to get back to what matters - saving a million accident-prone fantasy realms from their own past mistakes, evil gods on the rampage, and all that pesky loot that they clearly don't have anything better to do with than stick it in barrels at the bottom of dungeons. This is why so many of them have no…

World of Warcraft: Legion: A Demon Hunter’s Tale

Demon Hunters do not mess around. Demon Hunters do not play fair. They're one of the biggest new features in World of Warcraft: Legion [official site], and even in alpha, they're a force to be reckoned with. They're not finished, but they are Prepared. I've been taking one for a spin, and here's how they're going to kick all of the arse.

Feature: FOR DOOMHAMMER!

The RPG Scrollbars: A Weapon Of Legend

This week, Blizzard announced the latest World of Warcraft expansion - World Of Warcraft: Legion [official site]. It looks pretty good. Almost as good as my prediction. Almost. I'm not going to rehash the full details here, but I'm up for it. It's a big step forward for Warcraft's arc story, featuring the return of its Big Bad, the Burning Legion, and some long awaited…

WoW 4.2: Rage Of The Firelands Trailer

Blizzard have released a very exciting trailer for the upcoming 4.2 patch for World of Warcraft, largely showing off the hot new raid the patch adds to the game. "Hot" being the operative word. In the Firelands you will fight Beth'tilac (big fiery spider), Lord Rhyolith (magma giant), Alysrazor (big fiery bird), Shannox (fiery naga guy with two fiery dogs) and, yes, well, you get…

Blizzard Offer Free Trial Of WoW Remote

Do you have a mobile telephone? Nobody here at RPS has one, seeing as our preferred method of communication is bellowing at one another down long drainpipe-like devices of Jim's own creation (the nagpipes, he calls them), but on the off chance you do have a mobile phone, and you play World of Warcraft, Blues reports that Blizzard has now started offering a week-long free…

WoW Goes Trolling

Poor old Trolls - Azeroth hasn't treated them too kindly over the years. They've either been comedy Jamaicans or murderous sword-fodder, so often denied the prestige and glory of Warcraft's major races. And don't even get me started on the raw deal the gnomes get... Anyway, the Trolls are getting their day in the sun for the latest WoW patch, 4.1, which sees the angrier…

Bloody Hell

It feels lovely, getting to say stuff like "Recettear has sold 100,000 copies" and "Amnesia has sold 200,000 copies." Those figures mean that small groups of people's lives have changed, improved, had nice sofas and bigger TVs added to them. Truly, it warms the cockles of EARTH_MAMMAL_HUMAN_ORGAN_HEART.Then Blizzard announce that they've sold 4.7 million copies of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm and you just think "God,…

For Instance: Cataclysm Dungeoneering

A last missive (for now, anyway) from WoW's front lines from our embedded correspondent. Catch up with Bickers' previous thoughts here.Hello again! Before I wiffle on about Cataclysm’s level 80+ dungeons, I just want to touch on a bit more of the experience I had on the way to 85.If you’re playing Cataclysm, you’ve probably worked your way through Uldum in southern Kalimdor by now,…

Apocalypse WoW: Free Cataclysm Trial

DO YOU own World of Warcraft, plus Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King but not Cataclysm? Would that describe your situation? As of today Blizzard are offering you guys a free 10 day trial to sample Cataclysm's doomsday delights. You'll need a level 78 character to try out most of the new zones (which our man-on-the-inside Al Bickham writes about here), but failing…

Bad Doggie: Getting Worgenised in Cataclysm

Our guest Azerothian Al 'Bickers' Bickham returns with more dispatches from WoW's front-lines. Here's the first chunk, in case you missed it.I’ll be honest, I couldn’t give a fig for most of the races in World of WarCraft. Apart from the big, Navajo-tromping, cow-faced Taurens. I kind of dig them. And the Trolls. They’ve a little Ska in their blood.But give me an Orc, a…

Not Too Orcward: WoW Freelocation

Are you one of the frightening mountain of people considering relapsing returning to World of Warcraft in the wake of Cataclysm's rather noticeable release? Did you log on to dredge up your old character, in whatever ludicrous mish-mash of loot he was garbed in, only to discover that the entire world had set up camp on your server during your away time, and now you…
