The Road to Mordor: Out of game on party business

Here's an odd confession for a Lord of the Rings Online columnist to make: I haven't been playing the game much in the past month. I've been, for all intents and purposes, on a gaming sabbatical from Middle-earth. It's not as bad as it looks at first glance because I do this all the time with ...

The Daily Grind: How many deaths before you call it?

The first time, okay, it happens. The second time is a bit worse, but again, these things happen to the best of us.

MMO MMOnkey: Why I stopped playing Age of Conan

I like Age of Conan. I like the combat system that demands active engagement rather than the auto-attack, go-make-a-cup-of-coffee style of combat used in so many other MMOs. I enjoy exploring Funcom's recreation of Hyboria with its lush graphics and infinitely varied and "realistic" topography. I fi...

The Daily Grind: When will you be done with WoW?

Who knows if/when World of Warcraft will ever end? While I'm by no means a power player, if WoW disappeared tomorrow, I'd be a little saddened by all the things I hadn't gotten to experience in it. At the same time, however, no matter how often I drop in, I eventually reach a burnout state before th...

Stephen Totilo over at MTV's Mutliplayer blog actually canceled his WoW subscription recently, and to his surprise, actually found the experience easy and fun.
