Fox News discusses Star Wars: The Old Republic's gay expansion planet

Star Wars: The Old Republic fans already know that Makeb is the Planet of Gay, containing far more gay than even the fabled Gay Level on Coruscant. Or perhaps it's just the sight of the game's upcoming expansion, Rise of the Hutt Cartel, which will feature the first implementation of same-gender...

Flameseeker Chronicles: Five of the purest joys of Guild Wars 2's PvE

I had a really bright idea to title this post "Five things that don't suck about Guild Wars 2's PvE." However, being a denizen of the Interblags, I paused as I typed out those words. "You know, Elisabeth," I said to myself, "someone somewhere would probably see that as an invitation to troll."...

Choose My Adventure: TERA questing with Rielene

Last week's polls sent Higiri off to handle horrible dungeons, while Rielene continued to quest across the land.

Ask Massively: Can't talk, slaying darkspawn edition

If it wasn't obvious through previous posts, I'm rather keen on the whole Dragon Age franchise. Which means that yes, I've been playing the stupid Facebook game that has just gone into open beta. The next revolution in gaming it is not, but it's got just enough of the setting to tide me over for...

Hands-on with SWTOR's Jedi Knight on Tython

Last month, Massively was invited to LucasArts for a whole day's experience with BioWare's Star Wars: The Old Republic. One of the perks of living on the West Coast is that I get to attend all these awesome in-depth Silicon Valley events and really expand on Massively's sessions at various...

Massively's in-depth interview with SWTOR Community Manager Stephen Reid

Last Friday, Star Wars: The Old Republic finally revealed the Crew Skills crafting system. In a slightly less important announcement, BioWare also announced its new Community Manager, Stephen Reid.
