The Daily Grind: What fallen MMO would you like to remember today?

Thanks for coming to the Daily Grind today. My name is Justin, and today I'd like to raise a glass in memory of City of Heroes.

One Shots: Jolly pumpkins

Halloween may be over, but its spirit remains alive in MMOs! Alive, that is, as long as there are spooky locales to explore and a population that's more than willing to dress up in costume and face down the terrors that slip between the shadows.

The Daily Grind: Should all MMOs have a sidekick system?

One of the best features of RIFT's recent Nightmare Tide expansion is, in my opinion, the sidekicking system.

The Think Tank: Remembering our first MMOs

This week, my very first MMO, Ultima Online, turns 17 years old in what can only be an intentional effort to make classic MMO gamers feel very, very old indeed. I've been thinking a lot about the game and returned to it recently to scope it out, so for today's Think Tank, I polled the Massively wri...

The Daily Grind: What's the best loot system in an MMO?

Massively commenters recently reminded me that one of the things that bug me about retro themeparks is the loot that drops in dungeons and raids -- or to be more specific, the lack thereof. You want me to pile how many people into a multi-hour raid and reward only one or two of them with a boss dro...

Instead of spending gobs of volunteer development time and money on City of Heroes knock-offs, wouldn't it be better to simply acquire the real deal?
