New trailer shows off the best of PvP in Star Wars: The Old Republic

Star Wars: The Old Republic has been hitting the advertising road a bit harder lately. The newest trailer isn't a live-action romp, but it does encourage prospective players to pick a side in the game's conflict between the Republic and the Empire. That's because this one is all about the game's...

Jukebox Heroes: Starting your MMO music collection

I love seeing people turned on to MMO music, particularly after it's gotten such a bad rap over the years. But for the new fan, it can be a daunting proposition to start up a collection. After all, it's not as if you can go down to your local vinyl shop, peruse a stack of 45s, and come out with a...

Leaderboard: Achievements vs. collections

Some may call them busy work or a fool's errand, but others delight in the additional fluff systems in MMOs that encourage us to take the path less traveled.

The Daily Grind: What do you collect in-game?

Recently I was lamenting to my wife that I don't really have a good collection of anything. I think that really interesting people usually have some oddball collection that they work on over the years. For example, my friend Howard is a Pez fanatic, who has not only thousands of Pez dispensers...

Alter-Ego: A quick and dirty guide to Area 51

When it comes to taking your first steps in DC Universe Online, the sheer amount of different types of missions and objectives can be a bit daunting.

Massively's hands-on with Rift: Planes of Telara's dynamic content

Just a few weeks ago, I was invited to attend Trion Worlds' Gamer's Day in San Francisco to get some hands-on time with a couple of the company's upcoming titles, including Rift: Planes of Telara.

The Daily Grind: What bonuses do you want from a collector's edition?

I did something with Final Fantasy XIV that I've never done before -- I purchased the collector's edition. Normally, my love of in-game pets and art books is counterbalanced by my love of saving $25, but an extra eight days of playtime is fairly non-negotiable for me. Everything else that comes...

Everquest II aims upcoming Complete Collection at new players

The problem with getting players into a new game after a couple years is that, well, the game has moved on. It has a couple expansions under its belt, it has a whole lot of new concepts, and new players aren't going to be on board for it. A new player is hard enough to rope into an MMO as it is,...
