The Daily Grind: Which MMO has best realized its concept art?

I was looking at some Mortal Online concept art the other day and marveling at how beautiful it is. Then I looked at Mortal Online itself and was sorely disappointed. This is not to pick on Star Vault's game exclusively, though, because plenty of other MMOs have also failed to translate conceptual...

Perfect Ten: MMOs that deserve another chance

First impressions matter. First impressions count. First impressions are lasting. These commonly cited maxims are true, but I would like to add one more: "First impressions can be deceiving." Due to our nature of making snap judgments, experiencing something at the wrong time or being impatient, we...

The Daily Grind: What in-game possessions do you cherish?

The other day in WildStar I got a pit, and I could not be happier about it. Oh, it's not just any pit, it's an elite mining FABkit for my housing plot that allows me to plunder the best ore nodes in the comfort of my own virtual home. I probably prize this higher than most gear, because I know that...

Ask Massively: Destiny is not the boss of me

Bungie's Destiny launches next week, and since it is by most appearances an MMO (or possibly a fragrance), we've been covering it, albeit lightly since our primary audience is not a console-only audience. But hasn't Bungie said that Destiny isn't an MMO? That was Massively reader icnoevil's...

The Daily Grind: Would you pay a sub for an alpha?

The MMO community is fast becoming inured to the idea that we're now expected to pay a lump sum for alpha and beta access rather than exchange our testing time for early access. But what about paying a subscription for that access? Pathfinder Online is banking on it. At last weekend's PAX Prime,...

The Stream Team: Getting spacey with Elite: Dangerous

What happens when you take a space sim rookie, strap him into a starship, and tell him he's free to explore the stars as he pleases? Join Massively's Mike Foster as he discovers the answer to just that question in the current beta build of Elite: Dangerous. Elite, built by Frontier Developments and...

Norrathian Notebook: Ten must-see PvP arenas in Landmark

As soon as Landmark's PvP combat launch date was announced at SOE Live, a number of players dived in and started building arenas in anticipation. Not even hours after the update went live, there were fully functioning battle claims ready to welcome players to their death. Over the holiday weekend,...

The Daily Grind: Have you branched out beyond traditional MMOs lately?

As I mentioned in this space last week, I've been suffering a bit of MMO burnout. I've still been gaming, though, mostly via single-player stuff but also a smidge of Marvel Heroes. I was never much for Diablo, which is why my ongoing MH fixation is somewhat surprising. Maybe I'm just an action RPG...

Leaderboard: Are you rolling east or west for your ArcheAge faction?

I may have mentioned this once or twice already, but ArcheAge is fast approaching. I'm pretty excited about that, but I haven't settled on a faction yet. See, I kinda like both the Firran and Harani races which live on the game's eastern continent, but I much prefer the Nuian human lands from the...
