The Guild Counsel: Why The Raid is worth seeing

Over the weekend, Gary Gannon from Gamebreaker.TV hosted a unique event in the world of MMOs: a film premiere, complete with fancy suits and ties and even an afterparty (albeit in the form of a chat room). The film is The Raid, which followed the World of Warcraft guild Double Dragons as it...

The Perfect Ten: MMO mascots

Everyone knows that a good mascot can make a difference between a video game's death and rabid popularity. Mario, Master Chief, Duke Nuke 'Em, Pac-Man, Samus Aran, Pyramid Head -- each one of these mascots isn't merely an aspect of the game, they are the virtual spokesperson (or spokesthing)...

One Shots: The Lich King calls

The day many World of Warcraft players have looked forward to has finally arrived. Today marks the launch of Blizzard's newest expansion for World of Warcraft, Wrath of the Lich King. As the darkness of night marched across the globe last night, so too did the midnight release parties. The...

Anti-Aliased: Mourning Frostmourne, part 2

This leads us to the most noble road of all -- simply not putting the sword into the game. If the players kill Arthas, the sword needs to go somewhere that isn't the hands of the player community. Another NPC perhaps, back into the ice, or to simply never leave the corpse of the Lich King. This...

Behind the Curtain: More apocalypse please pt. 2

This was the point where things got interesting for me. One lasting memory of the event I have is a one-line message I saw in the Trade channel while in Ironforge. It read simply, "Stay out of Stormwind, it's infected." I did the only thing a sane person would do in that situation and hopped on the...

Anti-Aliased: Killing the auctioneers is a perfect reason to go to Northrend pt. 2

But, while some players used the event as a way to grief others, other players began to take a stand against it. Heroes pulled out their swords, turned on their sense undead, and began vigils in the cities to keep them functioning the way they should. By doing something as simple as "playing...

Anti-Aliased: Killing the auctioneers is a perfect reason to go to Northrend

Going to Northrend has always been something that bugged me. It's a land that's literally a boat trip away, and no one's set foot on it or even mentioned it since Arthas went bonkers and started living up there. Even the groups that should have been concerned about it, like the Argent Dawn or the...
