It’s been long in the making, but it’s finally here! Welcome to Junkies Nation!

The Junkies Nation Network is a collective of veteran gamers with the goal to provide you with not only the best gaming knowledge, but to bring you the latest in technology, TV, movies, comics – all forms of internet geekdom! Junkies Nation started years ago with a single site called Rift Junkies. From there we have expanded our coverage to all major AAA MMORPGs that have been released since then. As our Network grew, we realized that we needed to stretch our legs and begin to cover but every single aspect of geeks, nerds and internet bros. Because of this, Junkiesnation.com was created.

Currently, we have multiple dedicated fansites covering MMORPGs from RIFT to Final Fantasy XIV that are run, not by us, but by gaming fanatics just like you that have become Site Operators. However, there’s more. A cornerstone community that grew from the Fires of Heaven guild came to a close in 2012 rather abruptly, but Junkies Nation took up the reins and kept the community alive at Rerolled.org. Many of the people that you will read articles from on Junkies Nation have come from this veteran community. Junkies Nation would not be where it is today without this amazing community.

From day one, we are dedicated to bringing you the most interesting rumors, tips, news and more from across the entertainment industry – TV, Games, Comics and Movies. As always, our central focus will always be Online Gaming.

Check us out at JunkiesNation.com! Keep an eye out for contests for all sorts of movie tickets, gaming hardware, and more!

EQNJunkies Welcom

We are please to announce our latest arm of the Junkies Nation Network: EQNext Junkies! It has been our long tradition to launch and cover the latest and greatest MMORPGs coming out on the internet. It’s been a long while in coming, but it’s finally here. We are dedicated to bring you the latest news, opinion, guides, community coverage when it comes to Everquest Next.

Everquest Next is the next installment of the MMORPG that started it all fourteen years ago. From the origins of hardcore online gaming to this new iteration, EQNext promises to show us something new. EQNext’s design has been scrapped twice to it’s final form that has been decried the anti-themepark. EQ Next will bring promises of sandbox and emergent gameplay, what that means, we don’t know but all will be revealed at SOE’s Fanfaire on August 2nd.

SOE has been very tightlipped when it comes to information, but that hasn’t stopped speculation based on a myriad of Smedley tweets. The most ardent fans have come to believe that this game will bring together EVE-like gampelay mixed with the dungeon delving game of yester-year. Is the internet ready for EVE with fireballs and elves?

Stay tuned at EQN Junkies for all the latest rumors and news on Everquest Next!

S01E22 title screen

This week we sit down with Mark Jacobs and discuss his Kickstarter project: Camelot Unchained. Our conversation ranges from what to expect in the game to going over his founding principles and getting to the bottom of what he wants his game to become. Camelot Unchained looks to bring old school RVR/PVP ideals to a modern game. While not shooting for a AAA game created to support millions of players; Mark Jacobs hopes to fashion a game for RVR players only. Not sacrificing design to make everyone happy, Camelot Unchained hopes to bring RVR to its niche market.

Keep reading to watch the interview.

wildstar welcome title copy

We are please to announce our latest arm of the Junkies Nation Network: Wildstar Junkies! It has been our long tradition to launch and cover the latest and greatest MMORPGs coming out on the internet. It’s been a long while in coming, but it’s finally here. We are dedicated to bring you the latest news, opinion, guides, community coverage when it comes to Wildstar.

Wildstar is going to be a bright spot in the MMORPG playing field. Going back to the roots of large scale raids with a taste of hardcore-ness and then including a way to incorporate player housing so it doesn’t feel like you’re playing with a doll house, we expect Wildstar to be at the top of the genre.

Let’s not even forget that it’s combat system is slowly living up to it’s hype with a hybrid “soft-targeting” system that is a hybrid of some action-based games like TERA and the old tab-targeting system of World of Warcraft. We can’t wait to get our hands on the game on our own PCs.

So please bookmark us and follow us on twitter!

Join Junkies Nation in helping our walker get ready for her walk to help Fight Breast Cancer through the Avon Foundation. Junkies Nation is proud to be part of the fight against breast cancer and we hope that you join us with a small donation.

Our walker is committed to participating in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. It’s a big commitment, one that will require me to spend the next several months training and fundraising. But breast cancer is a big disease, one that still affects far too many people, and she is determined to do everything she can to help put an end to it.

This walk is being dedicated to her mother, a breast cancer survivor.

The money she raises will be managed and disbursed by the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade to help provide access to care for those who most need it, fund educational programs, and accelerate research into new treatments and potential cures. She’ll be just one of thousands of people who will walk up to 39.3 miles over two days, raising awareness promoting education.

She can’t do this without your help, please donate now.

Link to donation page.

JN-Logo-not-round

Hey everyone, many of you might be familiar with the full Junkies Nation network where we attempt to create fansites from every MMOG out there. As our network grows, so do my responsibilities. Because of this we have begun our very own Affiliate Operator program.

To break it down simply, Junkies Nation is looking for people who have the desire to run, operate and create content for Defiance Junkies. This means Defiance Junkies is your site to run as you see fit under our guidelines. In turn you get web development, hosting, developer access (Hi Lance!), promotional support that includes cross-platform with our sites as well as outside sources of promotion.

As the Senior Editor of Junkies Nation, I can’t be across our network every day, all the time and we’re looking for a bright, creative and hard working person to run Defiance Junkies for us. In return for all your hardwork, you then begin to share in the site’s profits earning up to 60% of the revenue generated on the site.

If you are interested in finding out more about this program, along with the details, please contact me at Draegan@Rerollz.com.

Thanks everyone!
