Tamriel Infinium: Seriously, you should craft in Elder Scrolls Online

I've come to the conclusion that Elder Scrolls Online is not a game you want run through quickly. If you fly past each town just running from quest marker to quest marker, you'll miss some of the most important things the game has to offer and burn-out comes that much faster. In the first day, we h...

Fallen Earth nodes to get less 'willy-nilly'

Tired of node placement refusing to make a lick of common sense in Fallen Earth? There's a dev for that. Fallen Earth's new state of the game post for April has a word or two to say about how the team is moving around gathering nodes to fit the environment better. "What this will look like is an...

Sony Online Entertainment has an eventual winner on its hands with EverQuest Next: Landmark. I know, I know. You've been burned by SOE in the past. Maybe you're still angry about the NGE, or maybe you're a Vanguard lifer and the wound is still fresh. Maybe you're even one of those goofballs who ...

The Daily Grind: Do you gather your own crafting materials?

I've been doing a bunch of gathering in Lord of the Rings Online lately. I'm trying to raise a couple of my crafting professions, see, and the auction house prices for the necessary materials are -- in a word -- ridiculous. Not only that, but LotRO's gathering is a low-stress activity that I've ...

The Daily Grind: Would you rather use mats to craft or make money?

With each new MMO that I dig into, there's always that looming question I must address from the start: Do I want to pursue crafting or just be a gatherer-supplier? Crafting has a lot going for it: delayed gratification, potentially big rewards, self-reliance, and satisfaction for making your own...

The Daily Grind: Do you specialize at crafting or do it all?

I'm having the hardest time focusing on a tradeskill in Final Fantasy XIV. They're all enjoyable in their own way, and heck I even like gathering. I feel that I should specialize, though, because otherwise I'll spread myself too thin and ultimately run out of time for other FFXIV funsies and other ...
