Lord of the Rings Online fans clean up old models

Lord of the Rings Online has been running for quite a while, and while it's not an ugly game its graphics are getting a bit long in the tooth. That's no one's fault, really, just the march of time making itself known. One fan has taken up the challenge of seeing what can be done with a bit of...

The Road to Mordor: Has LotRO grown too big for its own good?

Jumping into an MMO that's been out for several years -- let's call it "more than five" -- lends itself to several blessings and curses.

The Daily Grind: What's your favorite LotRO update or expansion?

I'm kinda slow-poking my way through Blackroot Vale in Lord of the Rings Online's latest update. So far it's pretty standard fantasy themepark fare, but I'm enjoying it well enough thanks to the setting (Gondor!) and the general ease with which I can wander through it. As far as LotRO updates...
