The Daily Grind: Why do you avoid MMO guilds?

I've been thinking a lot about guilds lately, inspired as I am by Karen Bryan's columns on the subject, and I have to say to all the unguilded people out there -- I don't know how in the world you do it. In this era of bloated perk systems that reward massive guilds for accruing warm bodies and...

The Nexus Telegraph: Playing a WildStar mind game

We still don't know exactly what the last two WildStar classes will look like, unless my speculation turns out to be true (and you'd better believe that I believe it). But as it happens, we don't know quite as much about one of the four we are aware of. Espers are a known quantity, but they've...

Ask Massively: The irony of media and betas

It's a running joke on Massively that some readers believe our lives are glamorous and that we sleep in beds made out of free video game swag.

The Road to Mordor: What to do with Destiny Points?

To say that Lord of the Rings Online has many types of currencies is like saying that Firefly has a couple fans out there. My characters' homes are like those houses you see on Hoarders, except that instead of collecting used newspapers and bobbleheads, I've stuffed every nook and cranny with...

The Game Archaeologist and the Girdle of Anarchy: The history

"The future in your hands," Funcom promised gamers in the early days of the new decade. As the MMORPG genre slowly took shape and grew in popularity, game studios were still babes in the woods, feeling out this brave and complex new world without a standard handbook to guide them to success....
