Flameseeker Chronicles: I'd like to build a Guild Wars 2 home

Happy 2014, everybody! For the first time in a long while, Guild Wars 2 has gone without updates for a few weeks while the ArenaNet team took a well-deserved break.

The Mog Log: Final Fantasy XIV's horse year

As I steadily collect another set of holiday hats for little reason other than an inexplicable need to collect these things (and I'd really like to be able to store my Usagi Kabuto while I'm at it, thanks), it's a fair time to look at the next year for Final Fantasy XIV's development. The game...

Storyboard: What housing does for roleplaying

Those of you who read the other meanderings that I post on the site already know that I am very, very unhappy about the mess that Final Fantasy XIV has made out of housing. You don't need to hear about it again, though. What's far more relevant is addressing a question that at once seems...

The Mog Log: A week of Final Fantasy XIV's patch 2.1

All right, I admit that the headline is a dirty lie.

The Mog Log Extra: Final Fantasy XIV's great housing fiasco

This past Saturday morning, Final Fantasy XIV announced free company housing prices in its patch notes for 2.1.

The Road to Mordor: Still waiting for (better) housing in LotRO

In all of the excitement of Helm's Deep and the changes that it brought, it was pretty easy to forget that we are running out the clock on 2013 and the devs have yet to do anything about housing other than evict a lot of bums and fiddle with the chests. Remember that promise? One of Executive...

Housing fans are all twitterpated over Final Fantasy XIV's 2.1 update, and in an article today Square-Enix provides a solid overview of what lodges and decorations will be available when the update hits. While individual housing is still a ways off, free companies will be able to purchase a...

Trion: Non-combat features 'provided a needed dose of RPG' in RIFT

RIFT's dimension system is one of the genre's better player housing implementations, and Trion has authored a dev blog designed to give players a peek behind the curtain on its development. It all started with the enthusiastic player response to the game's wedding features. "People didn't just...

BlizzCon 2013: Moving into Warlords of Draenor's garrisons

Arguably one of World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor's biggest selling points is its just-announced garrison system. A panel at BlizzCon and the official FAQ have details as to what this version of player housing will look like. Garrisons will be phased outposts that players will establish in...
