The Daily Grind: Should there be a statute of limitations on dev statements?

Like elephants, gamers have wrinkled, grey hides and freely poop all over the savannah. Oh! And like elephants, gamers never forget. They especially never forget anything a developer has said in the past if it ended up being contradicted by the studio or a prelude to a momentous mistake. I've...

The Daily Grind: Do you like to tank in MMOs?

The very first serious MMO tank I ever played was my day-one Warrior in World of Warcraft. I'd had dozens of characters in MMOs before that, but I was too chicken to step up and actually tank endgame fights. After all, as Massively commenters pointed out, there's a lot more to tanking than just...

The Daily Grind: Are you a RuneScape vet?

The other day Justin asked how many of you were playing TERA, based on the fact that it doesn't get a lot of press or MMO blog coverage. Today I'd like to pose a similar question about RuneScape. The game has been out forever, but in my MMO travels, I've talked to very few people who have played...

The Daily Grind: What are you doing in your pre-launch MMO?

So I'm in ArcheAge's alpha. Woo, I guess. It's not that the game sucks. On the contrary it's pretty solid fun. But I'm treading carefully so as not to spoil it all for myself come release. See, this isn't beta, so none of the progression matters. From my perspective, the only reason to be here...

The Daily Grind: Are you still playing TERA?

You know what's one MMO that I haven't heard much about lately? TERA. I guess it's doing fine following its free-to-play switch, but it seems like there's been zero chatter about it in the comments or on blogs, so I'm wondering if anyone's still playing it. Are you? Maybe you are still playing...

The Daily Grind: Is PLEX/APEX/C.R.E.D.D. risky for developers?

Trion announced ArcheAge's APEX system recently, and while I'm sure it has its own wrinkles, my first instinct was to compare it to EVE Online's PLEX. It's a fascinating idea, allowing players with knowledge of an in-game economy to leverage said knowledge into enough currency to buy tradeable...

The Daily Grind: Does your guild stay together between MMOs?

I can't remember the exact moment that my MMO guildies collectively realized, hey, we are pretty good friends and we like each other enough to play other games together so maybe let's do that, but that's more or less what happened. After a few years of trying to figure out our place in the MMO...

The Daily Grind: Do you see more saints or jerks in-game?

Well, this will certainly be an extremely subjective topic today, but I say we embrace it! We've all heard and experienced horror stories with players who are extreme jerks in MMOs, from the mouthy trolls in general chat to the scammers out to fleece your hard-earned goods. But are there equal or...

The Daily Grind: Have you ever volunteered for an MMO?

A few weeks ago in my Working As Intended column, I brought up the role gamemasters and officially appointed player helpers had in fostering communities, directing roleplaying, and aiding newbies and event organizers in early MMOs. We're not talking about just floating a HELPER tag over your head...

The Daily Grind: Did you try any new MMOs this week?

I dropped a wad of cash on the Steam summer sale this weekend, but not a penny of it went to MMOs. That's fine, I guess, since I've got plenty to do in Elder Scrolls Online these days. Oh and The Secret World's Tokyo is looking mighty inviting, too. What about you, Massively readers? Did you...
