The Daily Grind: Have you considered how much time you spend gaming?

I typed /played on a Star Wars: The Old Republic alt the other day, and I was surprised to learn that I've spent nearly 26 hours of my life on a throwaway MMO character! Granted, 26 hours out of approximately 700,000 (assuming I live to the ripe old age of 80) isn't very much. But still, it seems l...

The Daily Grind: How late do you play?

We all have different schedules, different timezones, different levels of engagement in our games of choice. But whether you're going to work at 5:00 a.m. or 5 p.m., you still have a schedule. Sure, you normally don't get home until 4:00 a.m., but if that's the case you should really have been in b...

The Daily Grind: How much time do you spend on MMOs each day?

I was looking at a list of Fall game releases the other day and salivating over some of the open-world titles coming over the next couple of months. We've got Saints Row IV this week, Grand Theft Auto V and its GTA Online component in September, and the latest Assassin's Creed offering a month after...

The Daily Grind: Why do you like character development and progression?

I dislike MMO progression. No, seriously. I dislike it mainly because it feels like a job and I already have a couple of those. If I could start every MMORPG at max level and just explore the world and/or enjoy the narrative I would do so without thinking twice about all the grindy, repetitive "g...

The Road to Mordor: Time travel is possible in LotRO

Some days I get a headache trying to wrap my head around the way that time works in Lord of the Rings Online. I mean, most MMOs are pretty straightforward when it comes to the time frame; pretty much everyone, everywhere in the game is in the same point in history, give or take a phase or two. Your...

The Daily Grind: Would you rather have more money or more time for gaming?

Money and time: Two things we always wish we had more of and yet come up short. When it applies to gaming, these are the two factors that can take a fun experience and pump it up. So which is better? As a married father of three, time is always in short supply in my household. Some website is ...

EverQuest, Ultima Online, and World of Warcraft among Time's top 100 games

We tend to think of MMOs as being different from other video games, but the genre has had a pretty major impact on all areas of gaming. As a result, it's no real surprise to see that three of the all-time most important MMOs show up on Time's recent list of the Top 100 Video Games of All Time. Ev...

Black Desert shows off time transitions

We've all sat down to play our favorite game in the evening only to be alerted to the time by sunlight filtering in through the window. In many games, however, day and night are simply toggles -- the game goes from dark to light, possibly with some dimming or brightening along the way. Black Dese...

The Daily Grind: How much gaming do you manage on a daily basis?

I spent a weekend away from MMORPGs recently, and while that's somewhat unusual, it's not as unusual as it used to be. Despite popular assumptions to the contrary, the life of a pro game blogger sometimes involves less gaming and more, well... other stuff tangentially related to gaming but more d...
