The Daily Grind: Which MMO has the best fishing?

I've always liked fishing in MMOs. Funnily enough I don't care for meatspace fishing all that much, but sitting on a virtual dock reeling in catch after catch never gets old. ArcheAge has taken my appreciation for MMO fishing to a whole other level, though. I'm still fairly newbish at it, but I...

The Daily Grind: What long term MMO goals are you working toward?

I've resigned myself to getting a fishing boat in ArcheAge round about 2017. That's OK, because there's a lot of other stuff to do in the game and I'm having fun with it, but good grief does 250 gilda stars and two thunderstruck logs seem impossible at this point. That boat is my goal, though,...

The Daily Grind: Have you ever enjoyed a grind despite the grind?

I've been fishing my ass off in ArcheAge. You kinda have to if you want to make a virtual career out of it, because it takes a while -- and a lot of clicking -- to get your fishing skill from newb to 10,000 and thus to the real meat of the system. This is clearly a grind, and ordinarily I loathe...

Although it will never be an MMO sandbox, it does start to resemble the single-player sandbox, except there are tons of other people playing...

Field Journal: Seeking instant gratification in RIFT

I've always been pretty open about my feelings on RIFT: I have an immense admiration for the mechanical ideas and the sheer effort Trion makes, but the world-building and aesthetic choices put me to sleep. The game firmly belongs in the category of those games I wish I liked but don't. While I...

The Daily Grind: To what lengths will you go for 'free' limited-time goodies?

I like to think of myself as a person who covets his time and won't spend it frivolously grinding, but once in a while I fall for it. "It" in this case being a limited-time event in an MMO where a particularly tantalizing reward is dangled in front of me. Common sense will flee and I'll find myself...
