Hyperspace Beacon: A 2012 SWTOR reflection

To say that this year has been interesting for Star Wars: The Old Republic would be a major understatement.

A Mild-Mannered Reporter: What we need on the road ahead

Here we are after the kick, and I have to say, thus far 2012 feels pretty much the same as 2011 but with fewer weather effects. But it also brings the opportunity to ask for a new round of features from City of Heroes, and as I think you've all learned by now, I'm always willing to ask for new...

Leaderboard: 2011 vs. 2012

The past vs. the future. The Year of the Rabbit vs. the Year of the Dragon. In short, 2011 vs. 2012 -- which will ultimately prove to be the better year for MMOs? Oh sure, you might say it's unfair to compare a known quantity with an unknown one, but since when has that stopped MMO players...
