Hyperspace Beacon: Outbreak

A year ago at PAX East, I spoke to Community Manager Stephen Reid about events in Star Wars: The Old Republic. He asked and answered a popular question at the time: "Will [SWTOR] have events where we randomly spawn NPCs for players to fight? No, but we will have events." He couldn't elaborate, bu...

The Daily Grind: Does Vanguard's diplomacy system deserve another shot?

While I've never played Vanguard, I'll admit that I've always been fascinated by the game's diplomacy system. It was rather ambitious at the time it was first announced, as the devs boasted about how they were creating a whole new "sphere" of play by turning dialogues between you and NPCs into a ...

Hyperspace Beacon: Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter

It's interesting: When I'm intrenched in the news of Star Wars: The Old Republic, I tend to forget sometimes what people know and don't know.

When it comes to learning how to work together as a guild, many MMOs have the same general method: read a strategy site, jump into a dungeon, and beat yourself against it until you figure it out. That's why we're intrigued to hear about the new guild additions coming to Runes of Magic in their upco...

Free Realms takes to the seas

Pirates these days are, not to put too fine a point on it, considered head-explodingly awesome. They get their own day of the month, they've been the lynchpin of several films, and they're generally pop culture gold. The new producer on Sony's popular Free Realms, David Georgeson, has recently anno...
