Blizzard Cancels Titian MMO

Blizzard has decided to drop work on their next-generation MMO game Titian. According to some reports the reason behind the cancellation was that they “didn’t find the fun”. Exactly what that means we are not 100% sure, but according to Blizzard this move will allow them to create something even better.

Guild Wars 2 sells 2 million copies


It has been around 2 weeks now since I have lost a large group of my gaming friends to this Guild Wars 2. Now it has been announced that GW2 had sold over 2 million copies after they re-launched the sales. Now you are probably wondering what I mean by re-launched? Why would anyone stop their sales if they were going so good? The answer is because they appreciate their customers. If you played Diablo III then you know what happens if you just try to sell as many copies you want in the shortest time possible, you get overcrowded servers,  all sorts of lag issues, users become unable to log in, and a bunch of angry gamers. The GW staff showed that they were ready for this, even after they had issues with swamped servers on the first day of the launch.

The Guild Wars 2 era has begun


If you ask MMO players which MMORPG (Massively Multi-Player Online Role Playing Game) is the best you will always have 2 groups, one of World of Warcraft (WoW) fans and one of Guild Wars (GW) fans. Of course there is a lot of subjectivity like in every other battle of two sides, but based on the experience of some friends that played both WoW and GW here are some of the facts. Guild Wars has much faster gameplay, for example when you want to go from one town to another you just go to map and click on town you want to go to, and bam, you are there. Also there is a lot of praise for Guild Wars PvP, which is made very tactical and extremely well organized, balanced and also rewarding. You can imagine GW as and MMO Diablo in some sort because it's very action packed, there are lots of fast fights, with a nice and clear interface.

Making IRL money in Diablo III

diablo 3dlc

Have you ever seen the gold farmers in MMORPG’s that stand around in crowded areas advertising for gold/item buying websites? In most cases, this activity is enough of a reason to ban a player from said MMO. However, in Blizzard’s record breaking game Diablo III it’s quite the opposite. In fact, the company actually allows item trading for real life money in the games auction house, taking 15 percent for itself of course.
