One Shots: Darkness Falls

Going through the One Shots email account is a little like peeking into strangers' photo albums, complete with their private stories and embarrassing toilet shots. Seriously, folks, what is it with you people sending in toilet pictures? OK, it's a little funny, so keep 'em coming. I was particul...

The Daily Grind: What older game deserves a graphical update?

It doesn't happen often, but when classic MMOs are treated to a graphical overhaul, it feels like a cause for celebration. A couple of weeks ago we heard that Anarchy Online's long-in-development new graphics engine had started beta testing, and not so long ago RuneScape jazzed up its looks with a ...

Betawatch: August 31 - September 6, 2013

Betawatch only covers some of what could be considered in beta testing. We have rules about what is and isn't in beta, for example.

The Game Archaeologist: Classic MMOs in August

How few players do you need to have before operating an MMO becomes ridiculously unprofitable and in need of closing? In the case of The Matrix Online, we found out that the magic number was 500.

Perfect Ten: My favorite classes

Forget raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens; a few of my favorite classes have nothing to do with such musical nonsense. Of course, now that I've started thinking about that song, my brain has to finish it before I can do anything else. Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens, yup. Brow...

The Daily Grind: What mistakes did you make when you first started in MMOs?

Looking back at my first steps in MMOs, it's breathtaking just how little I understood about how these games worked. I mean, a lot of that was on the developers because early MMOs didn't exactly go out of their way to teach me squat. It was a lot of trial, error, and often continued ignorance until...

The Game Archaeologist: Classic MMOs in July

It's been over a month since our last round-up of news, events, and community features covering the classic MMOs we know and love.

The Game Archaeologist: Anarchy Online turns 12

Most MMOs rolling into their 12th year (what few of them there are) live pretty quiet lives. Sure, there's the odd EverQuest expansion here and there, but for the most part the development has simmered down, the team trimmed to a handful of folks, and the best hope for the future is maintaining the...
