Neverwinter Xbox One [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

The popular free to play MMO on PC for the past two years finally lands on Xbox One and is much better than expected. Yes it has flaws and is essentially a console-ized version of the PC version, but it is a great experience and is completely free for anyone to play (Xbox Live required). It’s very simple to ease into and understand but has depth and an endgame, with more content on its way, and surely almost something for everyone, even if you’re not an MMO veteran. Neverwinter is a great first step for MMO’s on Xbox One and if other MMO’s come that are similar in quality and content, I would be very happy. 

The Pros: 

+It’s FREE
+A true MMO on Xbox One
+Incorporates your Xbox Live friends list for easy party and group invites
+Smartglass and USB keyboard support
+Feels natural on a controller

The Cons: 

-Cash shop prices are quite expensive
-Massive framerate issues
-Convoluted and confusing currencies

It’s almost Neverwinter’s two-year anniversary on PC and us Xbox One owners now to get to enjoy basically the same game finally on our TV and couch. These days if an MMO can not only stay alive, but thrive, then they’re doing something right, and Neverwinter doesn’t seem to be losing any steam, especially considering they’re about to drop their newest mod (expansion) for free, for PC players that is. Why am I mentioning the PC version of Neverwinter?

Marvel Is Jumping Into The MMO Genre Once Again

After a few failed attempts and one that gained some steamed before being canned, Marvel apparently is taking another stab at the MMO genre.  Back in the day Marvel was set to release an exclusive MMORPG exclusive to the Xbox 360.  Not much of Marvel’s Xbox 360 MMO was shown, but it was being developed by Cryptic Studios (City of Heroes) and a basic teaser trailer was enough to ignite the hype amongst hardcore Marvel fans.  But ultimately Marvel canned Cryptic Studios’ Marvel MMO and it was never shown to the public in any form.
