When not sitting at his computer -- crap, whom is he kidding? He is always sitting at his computer. Larry has made a career out of running websites and playing MMORPGs, so posing in front of a monitor is a way of life. If he is not busy updating his web designs, he is digitally painting or typing out that novel he will never finish.

Hyperspace Beacon: The rest of SWTOR's year-end report

The end of the year is nigh, and as I promised, I will give you my final thoughts on Star Wars: The Old Republic and its achievements for 2013. I wanted my assessment to be based on something other than squishy feelings. Of course, opinions are extremely subjective, but that doesn't mean they...

Tamriel Infinium: The year before launching the Elder Scrolls Online

Based on the comments for this column a couple of weeks ago, it became apparent to me that many readers have very little idea about what to expect when the Elder Scrolls Online launches. And I guess with the big push of information about PvP, it would seem that that is all ESO has to offer. In some...

SWTOR on its second anniversary: Winning an uphill battle

At the beginning of the year, Star Wars: The Old Republic was struggling to find its place in the MMO world. As you are likely aware, 2012 was a rough year for SWTOR, but because of the free-to-play launch in November, the tide began to turn, at least financially. Players began flooding back to the...

Tamriel Infinium: Marketing, modeling, and modding the Elder Scrolls Online

I knew Massively readers would have a lot to say regarding the release date for the Elder Scrolls Online and how it measures up against other upcoming MMOs, but I had no idea about the breadth of topics that would come up. We heard the old standard, that nothing will ever beat the two-ton...

Hyperspace Beacon: The SWTOR year-end report on PvP

In July, I took the famous Bartle Test and pitted it against the state of Star Wars: The Old Republic at the time. The test, based on the research of Dr. Richard Bartle, measures the types of activities within an MMO that players find fun. Of course, there is plenty of crossover, and very few...

Tamriel Infinium: The Elder Scrolls Online is no April Fools' joke

Usually for this Elder Scrolls Online column, I bury the weekly question somewhere in the middle of the article or tag it at the end, but this week, I want to begin with the question. What do you think of the ESO release date? For those of you who missed Wednesday's announcement, here it is again:...

The Stream Team: What is Poptropica?

Sometimes the best people to find family-friendly MMOs are the children themselves. When Massively's Larry Everett went looking for a game to play, he turned not to his friend Kyle but to Kyle's son, Kevin. Turns out one of Kevin's favorite games is Poptropica. You've never heard of Poptropica?...

The Stream Team: SWTOR raiding during the holidays

The holidays jumble up everyone's schedule. Sometimes making a raid is difficult, so it's important to remember that people raid for fun. In a game like Star Wars: The Old Republic, it's easy enough just to raid without the pressure to progress and be the best all the time. Join Massively's Larry...

Hyperspace Beacon: Leveling to max in SWTOR in less than a day

Periodically, the producers at BioWare will throw players a gift of double XP for a weekend in Star Wars: The Old Republic, or in the case of last July, three weekends. Over the American Thanksgiving holiday, SWTOR did it again, and I decided that I was going to take full advantage of it. Laura...
