The Daily Grind: What NPC ability would you like to have?

I'm pretty content with my avatar in The Elder Scrolls Online. He looks cool, he's a badass with a crazy amount of useful combat and crafting skills, and he has a tremendous singing voice. One thing he can't do, however, is lean back and flip a coin like the NPC in the image up there. ESO does...

Tamriel Infinium: Roleplaying in spite of The Elder Scrolls Online

From the moment I stepped into my first MMORPG ever, I was interested in playing a character, not just some avatar of myself on the screen.

Flameseeker Chronicles: Guild Wars features I wish had made it to Guild Wars 2

You may have noticed, but Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2 are different games. I thought we'd clear that up to begin with. In fact, they're such different games that there are oodles of people who are fans of one but not the other (typically, most of these folks seem to be in favor of Guild Wars 2,...

A few weeks back, I was nostalgically asked, "Remember those days when talking about Star Wars: The Old Republic was all about speculation?" Those days might be long gone now, but the beginning of a new year always prompts a resurgence of dreams of the year to come. And although I still love...
