The Daily Grind: Do you read MMO novels?

In the lead up to Star Wars: The Old Republic, I find myself worrying that I'm missing out by not having read any of the BioWare-commissioned, game-centric novels and stories -- Fatal Alliance, Deceived, Revan, and the rest. SWTOR isn't alone, of course, in having its own custom novels. World of ...

Upcoming book Stay Awhile and Listen delves into the history of Blizzard

Are you into video games? Of course you are. Are you into history? Are you into Blizzard Entertainment? And perhaps most importantly, are you into books? If you answered yes to all of these questions, then you're probably a rather small subset of people, but luckily for you, we've got just the ...

RuneScape's Betrayal at Falador: Impressions of a newbie

The first RuneScape novel, Betrayal at Falador, will be released October 12th. If you were a RuneScape fan a few years back, you may be a little confused, seeing as how this novel came out back in 2008.

The Daily Grind: Would you like to see your favorite IP as an MMO?

MMORPGs often take their inspiration from existing intellectual properties including novels, films, and even pre-existing games.

The Daily Grind: Have MMOs prompted you to read books?

There's no denying the fact that MMORPGs come with a lot of reading built-in (Exhibit A: the quest text box). But for some folks, they can't get enough of their favorite MMO and look to read about the world elsewhere. Perhaps it's the desire to stay connected with the online world even when you can...

Second Life detective pens Second Life detective novel

Operating since about 2007, Flick Faulds has run a detective agency in Second Life, though not all of his operations were in the virtual environment. It's only natural (considering that every user is outside of Second Life) that investigations led outside as well. After quite some time operating, an...

The Daily Grind: Does playing an MMO pique your interest about its origins?

MMOs are rarely stand-alone entities; there are exceptions of course but most are created thanks to a fan base from some other medium.
