For many players is may still be too early for them to have reached the max level cap of 30, but with players topping out at max level as early as 15 hours after launch, a whole new world of end game has opened up, or rather at least the end game that isn't comping next month. Players may be a little lost at first, mostly because there isn't too much to do aside from Dark Zone exploration, but one of the primary activities that a max level player should be doing is their daily missions. These missions not only reward some high quality loot, but they are also one of the best ways to grind out the end game currency of The Division
When Diablo 3 was first announced the rabid fans that had been locked up in their rooms with their level 99 Necromancer on Diablo 2 ran out screaming with joy into the streets. They promptly returned to their caves half blind and their skin bubbling from the sun.

Upon starting Dark Souls 2, players will notice one of the biggest changes from Dark Souls, maybe not right away, but eventually. In Dark Souls 2, the enemies vanish after being killed a set number of times (about 15 times thereabouts) which can make soul farming a bit problematic. However, don't despair, with the help of a particular item and some equipment not only will the enemies respawn but players will get more souls from them. It makes soul farming a breeze. Kind of. This is Dark Souls 2 after all, so nothing is ever easy. There are options for every kind of farmer, from those willing to embrace the challenge and for those that want to get some relatively easy souls without stressing about dying.
While the graphics, combat system, and PvP in Blade & Soul are the real stars of the show, crafting and gathering is still a necessity.
The Novelist asks one question, what are you willing to sacrifice for your own ambition? Of course, this game doesn't allow players to take the helm of a power hungry warlord, but rather a benevolent ghost who observes the family of three which moves into the house it is bound to for three months during the summer. The Novelist is a very niche game and many hardcore gamers won't care much for it. There are no zombies, no explosions, but rather a narrative on the decisions we make and how it affects those around us.
Battlefield 4 is DICE's fourth installment into their Battlefield series and by far the grandest game yet. The Battlefield series has always made it a point of pride to create epic and oft times barely believable moments through their games multiplayer and campaign through the liberal use of high destructible environments.

From the evolving environments, falling skyscrapers, vicious tropical storms, and larger scale destruction on larger maps than ever, Battlefield 4 is by all means a grand affair.

However, upon its launch, it had several major problems that made it unplayable for most people and causing it to be the worst disaster in Final Fantasy history. Square Enix realized that major changes needed to be made, so they ended what is now referred to as Final Fantasy XIV 1.0 in November 2012, by dropping a giant Bahamat filled moon on the world.

Blade & Soul is NCSoft's free-to-play MMO that recently made its way over from Asia, where it has been out for several years, to North America and Europe. Gamers are taking to it quickly for its unique reaction-based combat system and eye-melting graphical splendor. However, among the many conventional MMO norms that Blade & Soul tossed out the window was the MMO Holy Trinity of Tank, Healer, and Damage Dealer. Instead of choosing a class in order to fill one of those roles, players are expected to choose one of Blade & Soul's seven classes based on how they want to play the game. For those having trouble telling one class from another, here's a quick rundown.
In Fire Emblem: Fates, both Birthright and Conquest as well as the DLC Revelations route allow players the option to recruit certain characters as well as capture bosses under the right conditions to fight under their chosen banner.

Looking to completely flesh out that battle roster? Look no further.
Tribal War is a strategy game that is set in the Middle Ages in which you, as the village leader, grow your village and raise armies to conquer other villages.

The game is focused almost completely on fighting other players for their villages, however, you are not alone in this endeavor.

For all the curses slung out over voice chat, player killings, and vengeful trolling dished out by gamers to each other, we can occasionally be a kind people. As a series of tight-knit communities, it is no surprise that when a community loses one of their own, they take it pretty hard.
Survival games aren't about saving the world or solving a problem. Survival games are about one thing and one thing only--surviving.

With all the other MMO's that have been released in the past year or two that had been advertised as 'WoW Killers' or 'World of Warcraft Killers', Guild Wars 2 at least had enough grace not to advertise itself as one. However, unlike Star Wars: The Old Republic, Aion, or Rift; Guild Wars 2 would have had a really decent chance.
