A Mild-Mannered Reporter: What's the problem with Marvel Heroes?

Marvel Heroes is going to release soon. Maybe. Probably? It's hard to say. We have a release window for the game but not a large amount of evidence that the game is actually moving toward that release window; there are beta updates but no clear signs that the game's open beta will be coming soon....

Ask Massively: The next internet fad will be tires edition

Tires are round bits of rubber that are placed upon the wheels of vehicles in order to facilitate spinning or something. Also, sometimes your parents might string some rope around one because they're too cheap and lazy to buy you a decent swingset. Anyhow, the next thing on the internet will be t...

The Daily Grind: What do you consider "good" player-created content?

Star Trek Online might be the most recent game to prepare for the player-created content bandwagon, but it's far from the only one.

The Daily Grind: Expectations of quality?

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to participate in the Xfire Debate Club, which was really quite cool. A lot of fantastic questions were asked, but one in particular struck me as more of a community question than just a question for those of us who were in attendance from the various media/gaming ...

MMOGology: Can Wrath keep us entertained?

My World of Warcraft guild is fairly casual - so why do we already have level 80s? Pre-Wrath of the Lich King we farmed Karazhan. Gruul's Lair and Zul'Aman were regular runs, but we never tackled Black Temple or Sunwell as a guild. We leveled alts, crafted, PvP'd and told bad jokes in guild chat. ...
