The Daily Grind: How complex is too complex for MMOs?

I'm a huge fan of isometric clickers like Diablo, Torchlight, and Titan Quest, so I admit to being secretly pleased when pseudo-MMOs like Path of Exile were approved for coverage on Massively. In fact, I jumped into Path of Exile this past weekend to give it another spin. And as soon as my new...

Free for All: How I'm preparing for the release of Wakfu

I'm not your typical fanboy. I get excited about an upcoming game, but generally I will not believe in its greatness until I play it.

MMObility: A first look at Conquer Online for the iPad and a giveaway

Over the last few weeks, I've been checking out Conquer Online for the iPad. I don't really have anything to compare the game to because I never played the full PC version, but the mobile version I played felt a lot like a "real" full MMO. I logged in, made a character, and ran around the lands...
