Ask Massively: Dancing on WildStar's grave

This week's revelation that WildStar Design Producer Stephen Frost is quitting his role is not the first and likely won't be the last blow to the beleaguered game.

One Shots: A case of schadenfreude

Normally right about now, we'd open with something interesting or vaguely witty related to this screenshot.
