Yikes, that environment really does look Planetside esque haha. Lookin' good, I never played EQ2 but I'm definately interested in this considering it looks to be doing a few new things

Yeah dude, this just jumped to my top most anticipated MMO with Wildstar on second place. If you're interested in finding out more about the game, there's a PC gamer interview with the devs: http://www.pcgamer.com/2013/08/03/everquest-next-interview/

PS4 and PC crossplay? Come on SOE we know you can do it :P (and yes I did read that Alekzis)

Looks cool. And it's F2P! :D

This could actually be an MMO I could get behind. It looks amazing!

What's with all the MMOs suddenly coming out? ESO, EQN... it's like they were waiting for WoW to start fading away :))) sadly mmos are just too time intensive for me. 

That being said, this does look amazing!

Looks a lot like Wildstar, but that's not a bad thing. Everquest was my second MMO and it was a decent time, but I doubt I'll try this one. Especially not with FFXIV coming back into my life this year.

So far, not impressed with what's shown. Movement options are neat, but a big world is a detriment without things to fill it -- FFXIV proved that -- and unique movement methods can get stale quickly -- as Aion proved. The destruction effects are unique in the MMO space, but they look ridiculous right now. All that said, I'm willing to suspend judgement until it gets closer to release or they show more of the quest/leveling structure.

Did you guys read up on all the pre release content? They will also be dedicating a lot of game decision polls and contests to their fans and players. There will be a mobile game/app soon to let you get your feet wet on the lore, and Everquest Landmark which will be a sandbox environment dev kit for the game. It will be like EQ meets minecraft--anyone will have the ability to create and render objects, structures, and environments in the game and then post them up for sale. They will also have the potential to be voted on to actually make it into EQ Next!!!

Being Free to Pay makes me disinterested. I just don't trust Devs that release games that way. It had me intrigued, though.

The Axe Factor 181: A Fat Guy Named No Man's Sky

Rubber bullets cannot save you from The Axe Factor! This week, we lose our minds over the latest media from Batman: Arkham Knight, discuss one listener's suggestion that we renounce pre-orders to combat broken games, and go hands-on with Far Cry 4, GTA V, and more!

Axefactor 180. We Get What We Deserve

I would love to change my username to DaySixEdition games.

Greetings fellow Axeheads.  I am once again compelled to write my thoughts in the same theme I wrote every other time in relation to the AxeFactor #180.  Our glorious Axelords Brent and Lorin again ponder as to why it is that our industry treats us like crap.  There is even a pole again for us to express what we feel about the situation.

The pole is missing the ''The industry treats us as we deserve.''   Which is what…

The Axe Factor 180: A Guy Who Knows That We Know

AC: Unity - The good, the bad and the ugly

The good:

- Graphics. It looks stunning and the amount of NPC's roaming through the city give the game a nice ambiance and make the city come to life like no other game has ever done before.

- Interiors. Much more inside buildings now. Fast short cuts through a house or complete missions taking place in a palace. Not every house is accessible but there is plenty of them to make it divers. 

- Riddles. Less hand holding this game. Riddles and murder cases to tease the…

Hatred is not about violence & here's why

PSA: Nothing I am saying is meant to be inflammatory or antagonizing. I am simply informing you the reader on my personal take of the Hatred controversy now that it has been several weeks and we can really take a step back to examine what the issue is.

 

The Hatred controversy is not about Violence in video games... Hatred is not about Grand Theft Auto, Hatred is not about Halo, heck Hatred is not about Boondock Saints or even Sons of Anarchy. Hatred is about Columbine, there I…
