The Daily Grind: What type of animal do you like as a pet?

I love pet classes that allow you to capture, tame, and use an animal as your new combat buddy. It adds a lot of variety and choice to playing the class compared to pet classes that just stick you with the standard pet that everyone else gets. This was perhaps why I played a Hunter in World of W...

Istaria preps for 10-year anniversary, big content patch

Can you believe that Istaria will be 10 years old in December? Well, technically the game was called Horizons way back when, and while the name has changed, the focus on playable dragons has not.

The Daily Grind: What vanity pet would you like to see made?

Ever since I ran The Secret World's Issue #7 content and explored the Nursery, I've become fixated on the idea of owning a nannybot of my very own.

Also not pictured above is the small spherical lizard that looks at you and s...

PAX Prime 2013: S2 Games shows off Strife

I was pretty interested to see S2 Games' newest venture into the MOBA genre, Strife, at this year's PAX Prime. It's a more newbie-friendly take on the traditional DotA concept while still retaining high levels of complexity and a high skill cap. S2 Games has learned a lot of lessons from Heroes ...

Massively's hands-on with Strife, a new MOBA from S2 Games

My team is struggling. We've managed to hold our own after a nasty fight in the bottom lane, but then a message appears on my screen: Krytos is coming. The team at S2 Games had warned me about this giant ape and his tower-neutralizing, minion-stomping abilities. But there he was with the enemy team...

Neverwinter's companions are real bears (and cats)

Have you ever found yourself playing Neverwinter and thinking, "This is great, but it'd be way better with an enormous bear mauling things while I cast spells"? Or perhaps you'd prefer a panther, or a hawk, or an enormous spider? Whatever your preferred flavor, the game probably has a companion to ...

Chaos Theory: Been there, done that, got the guardian event t-shirt in The Secret World

The hardest part about writing about The Secret World's anniversary Guardians of Gaia event was stopping long enough to write!
