After over four years of writing for Massively, I've ceased to be surprised by how bizarre and unexpected this industry can be.

The Game Archaeologist moves into Lucasfilm's Habitat: Part 1

For some of you reading this, you may simply never have known a world before the internet existed by virtue of your age. It's not your fault, but as generational divisions go, this was a biggie.

"Our time has come. For 300 years, we prepared; we grew stronger while you rested in your cradle of power believing your people were safe and protected. You were trusted to lead the Republic, but you were deceived." These were the words that set off the chain of events in the very first Star W...

Hyperspace Beacon: Homage to we hope this never makes it into SWTOR, but knowing our luck, it probably will

One of the best compliments you can give a creator is to make an homage to his work. The title of one of the Hyperspace Beacons was an homage to TOROCast articles.

Ask Massively: I feel a disturbance in the Force

We are optimists here at Ask Massively. We went to go see Episode 3 despite the fact that Lucas managed to turn the Greatest Movie Villain of All Time into a whiny emo teenager.
