The Daily Grind: What MMO has the cutest pets?

The picture above is a Goobbue Sproutling from Final Fantasy XIV.

The Daily Grind: Would you like games to remember your character's birthday?

It's a little thing, but I've always been endlessly fond of the fact that Guild Wars keeps track of the day my characters were created and sends them presents. I'm rather attached to my characters, and even though I don't actually collect minis I still like to know that there's a little marker...

The Tattered Notebook: Never leave home without it

This week, I decided it's time to dump the bag. My characters often accumulate items at such a rapid rate that my bags quickly resemble those of a typical teenager at the mall. Any time I resign myself to plunking down at the bank to sort my inventory, I end up shocked at some of the stuff I...
