What Is Wildstar? “You’re Gonna Find Out, Cupcake”

What Is Wildstar? “You’re Gonna Find Out, Cupcake” I like a trailer that’s up-front. What Is Wildstar? it asks, in a self-deprecating fashion. As NCSoft’s latest MMO, from Carbine Studios, prepares to begin its beta, they’re making sure you know. This is a properly good trailer.   Although as a…

Homes All The Rage: Player Housing In Wildstar

Homes All The Rage: Player Housing In Wildstar The last time I played Wildstar, Carbine’s upcoming MMO, I had a decent time but I was left anxious about how close it stuck to the numbers, numbers, numbers model and why its Explorer path was so much like a late 90s…

Carbine Talks About… Wildstar’s Movement?

Carbine Talks About… Wildstar’s Movement? Yeah, developers Carbine know that spending resources on a video that is just about how the characters in Wildstar move seems a little odd. It should be trivial, but actually, given that this is an MMO, there’s quite a bit of extra stuff going on…

A Pair Of Wild(star) Videos Appear

A Pair Of Wild(star) Videos Appear. I always felt that World of Warcraft didn’t get me as a player. All I ever wanted to do was wander the world and look at what had been made, but the gated realm that it offered made that tough. Not impossible, though: my…

Rezzed: Look Directly At Wildstar

Rezzed: Look Directly At Wildstar I tried to play Wildstar at Rezzed, which had the least pushy crowds of any convention I’ve been at. Nevertheless, I didn’t manage to get onto the bank of PCs. The players there were curled over the keyboards in the manner of a lion protecting…

Wildstar Dev On Biz Model, Jumping Puzzle Pain & Sunsets

Wildstar Dev On Biz Model, Jumping Puzzle Pain & Sunsets Yesterday, I caught up with Carbine Studio’s bossguy Jeremy Gaffney to see what’s been going on in their upcoming mega-MMO Wildstar. While he wasn’t quite ready to reveal how the game will make money, he did drop a few big…

Wildstar’s Combat Trailer

Aiming Is The Aim: Wildstar’s Combat Trailer Sorry, John. No WildStar for you. The lovely looking MMO’s latest vidbonk (I’m trying that word out, let me know how it worked for you) details how different it’ll be from traditional MMOs in its combat. Specifically how you’ll aim. I’m sad that…
