What’s in a Word?

In an announcement that was drowned out by the screams of thousands of privacy advocates across the world, Bioware recently opened up “Game Testing” on Star Wars: The Old Republic. “Game Testing for Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ is underway! Those selected to test will gain access to the game and be able to provide valuable feedback [...]

Blizzard’s Real ID Promo Jingle

Fearing a huge backlash from their fans, Blizzard has released a promo jingle for Real ID…

The 50 Dollar Question

Something that’s long bothered me about new MMOs is their pricing. I know there are plenty of solid, free(mium) MMOs out there, from Runescape (biggest MMO ever!) to Free Realms and so on, but the ones that have always piqued my interest, for better or worse, are the ones that usually launch with $50 price [...]

Massive Formulas: Spin that Turbine ’til it’s clean.

Author’s Note: After the failure of Age of Conan, Tabula Rasa, and Hellgate: London I decided to take a look at some of the successful MMOs we are playing today and see what went right. I’ll also take a look at some of the failures and see what went wrong. This actually takes a lot [...]

Bioware CEO: “We Luv U PC!”

In a statement to allay fears that PC gaming was dying, Ray Muzyka (CEO of Bioware)  said that PC gaming was alive and well and not in a Mtn. Dew induced coma as reported here last week. “Even if we don’t have the sales records to prove it, we’re positive that that plenty of people [...]

Cash for Coolness

SW:TOR RMT is on its way.  RMT’s a big subject for most folks these days. Personally, I work for a living, so paying $14.95 (x4) is just what I do since that’s my hobby.  I don’t drink much, I gave up smoking in 2005, drugs are for people who have no better way to enjoy [...]

Another One Bites The Dust

I saw this bit of info while trolling Michael and Scott’s blogs.   Another MMO bites the dust. Tabula Rasa’s time of death is officially called at February 28, 2009.  At least NCSoft is trying to soften the blow with some decent parting gifts for those still subscribed to the doomed game. My recommendation to [...]

THQ announces Warhammer Online!

No, I’m not talking about Warhammer: Age of Reckoning.  Earlier this year THQ announced that they would be working on a new MMO in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.  Now, I’m not exactly sure what Games Workshop was thinking in terms of setting up competition for its other Warhammer game, but perhaps its a kind of “MMO [...]
