Storyboard: The advantage of familiar characters

It's kind of fitting that my character most prone to wandering has wound up in several different games now. She's existed in one form or another for years now, and while she's hardly the only recurring character I've used, she's certainly the one most prone to hopping into another game. While the...

Leaderboard: New hotness vs. old and trusted

There's always something awesome just over the horizon. MMOs are coming out all the time, and it seems like it's only a couple of months before one new title or another is launched. It almost seems silly to stick around in a single game when there are so many titles already out there and so many...

The Daily Grind: What does it take for you to go back to a game you enjoyed?

I'd been on a bit of a break from City of Heroes when the announcement came that it was shutting down. And I'm not alone; some of my friends had also been taking a break, but when it came to light that the game's days were numbered, they came back in a hurry. Everyone wants a chance to remember...

The Daily Grind: What dead game would you play in a second if it revived?

Amidst all of the new games being released and the veteran titles still chugging along, it can be easy on occasion to overlook the titles that are no longer with us. Games like Tabula Rasa, Auto Assault, and The Matrix Online all had fans, but they are no longer available for players to enjoy in...

The Daily Grind: What's your favorite PvE memory?

Rare indeed is the game that allows players to avoid the PvE side of the game altogether. Of course, that's assuming you'd even want to. Fighting great beasts and horrid beastmen in Final Fantasy XI, hunting down villains and preventing dimensional incursions in City of Heroes, aiding the quest...

The Daily Grind: What would bring you back?

So you unsubscribed. It happens. Much as we'd like to think otherwise, no MMO entertains us forever, and whether it's a patch that changed a lot of fundamentals or just a general growing dissatisfaction with the game is largely irrelevant. What matters is that you stop and let the game drift out of...
