Lost Continent: Lucking into a breezy ArcheAge bungalow

My ArcheAge avatar is pretty fortunate. Last Friday night he became the proud owner of a breezy bungalow, which is that big bamboo marine house that you've probably seen in screenshots, videos, and the like.

Revival launches its site, aims to sell houses for cash

Revival has just opened the doors to its official site, and it's a sandbox online game with skill-based progression. Or it will be, at least.

The Daily Grind: How should studios handle server merges with open world housing?

We had an interesting question come up in the office the other day concerning all of the open world housing in ArcheAge.

Final Fantasy XIV introduces personal housing (badly) with patch 2.38

After more than half a year of waiting, Final Fantasy XIV players can finally purchase houses of their own. Provided, of course, that they have an exceptional amount of disposable gil and were on the servers early. Patch 2.38 introduces the option of purchasing land in the housing wards as an...

Massively's ArcheAge launch diary: Day three - PvE, quests, and story

Welcome back to Massively's ArcheAge launch diary. I can't believe we're already on the third installment because there's still so much to see, do, and learn. That's a good thing, though, isn't it? Yeah, it is, and while ArcheAge has its share of issues, its breadth and depth is incredibly...
