Migrating your flock to a new MMO

When the temperature starts to drop and the food supply starts to dwindle, it's a common sight to see flocks of Canada Geese airborne and flying en masse to a warmer more hospitable climate. The analogy holds for online gaming as well. When you've run the same content over and over again and the...

Character planning in World of Warcraft

The building of a character in World of Warcraft can be just as painful as balancing a budget by hand without a spreadsheet. The number-crunching side of the game where you have to figure out hit ratings and mana regeneration rates and dodge percentages is something that few people can say they...

"Peace on earth goodwill to men" started with players this season

Whether you play EverQuest or World of Warcraft or City of Heroes or Lord of the Rings Online, or any other MMOG, one of the most highly anticipated times of the year is the holiday season. Why? Because every year the people we love to hate through the other eleven months of the year (i.e. the...

LoTRO guild releases 2008 calendar online

Every year I am faced with a dilemma. I am faced with the question of which calendar I am going to buy to hang on "the hook" that is attached to my wall beside my computer with 3M command adhesive. The last couple of years I've lucked out with some exotic car calendars from a car dealer I do...

Stuffing more stuff into your LoTRo player housing. Literally.

One of the things I love the most about writing for Massively and WoW Insider is that I get incredible exposure to what is going on in the MMO world and the ideas that come from the brilliance of the people who make these games we love so much. Some ideas are "me too" ideas that hopscotch from one...

Is Norrath ready for Tuesday's patch?

Everquest will always hold a place in my heart. One of these days I will go back. As strange as it may seem, there is a part of my soul that I left in Greater Faydark, high atop the tree city of Kelethin. I think it's the MMORPG place that always felt the most like home to me. Even in my later years...

New life for old, dead games?

The folks over at West Karana sure have an interesting concept. It seems the author of this afternoon's post was in the market for an Xbox 360 and was a little shell-shocked when the salesperson tried to sell them a copy of Pacman. This got the creative juices flowing and our friend reasoned that if...
