The Summoner's Guidebook: Time as a resource in Dominion

I feel that time is the least understood concept in all of gaming. People in World of Warcraft or other MMORPGs talk about how they "farmed something for free" all the time. Obviously, this is a fallacy, as a gamer's time is worth something. In League of Legends, time is a very important facto...

Pathfinder Online goes time-traveling in latest dev blog

According to the venerable Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, time is an illusion, and lunchtime doubly so. MMO time is perhaps even more illusory, and that's the exact topic of today's Pathfinder Online dev diary. It's always tricky deciding on the ratio of real-world to in-game time. On the...

Storyboard: A matter of times

How often do you actually think about time in-game? I'm not talking about how long you spend in the game or how much time you have to play or anything like that -- I'm talking about the actual passing hours when you're playing the game.

Time is always against us, a wise man once said, and truer words were never spoken regarding the MMORPG genre. The glut of titles released over the last few years means that fans have some hard choices to make, and when those choices are coupled with the inevitable game closures, it's rare that e...

The Mog Log: Time to relax

Time is strange. It's everywhere and yet invisible, and all we can do is represent it through measurements of time. Time flies, but time drags, and sometimes you're not sure where the time goes. Time keeps on slipping into the future, but you'll never get your time back, and you wait for the righ...

Storyboard: Time is not on your side

I don't know about the rest of you, but these days it sometimes seems like I just don't have the time to roleplay any longer. Don't get me wrong -- I love roleplaying with a passion normally reserved for romantic partners, or in rare cases, a particularly awesome game. (Or potential romantic p...

The Daily Grind: How do you structure your limited play time?

It's the classic tale of the haves and have nots: Those who have copious amounts of free time and can pull all-night raids regularly vs. those who can count the number of hours they get to game every week on their fingers. Sometimes with just one hand. Today's Daily Grind goes out to those of ...

The Daily Grind: What game would you play if you had the time?

There are a lot of MMOs on the market at the moment, and while it can be argued that many of them are drawing inspiration from the same well, there's still plenty of variety available. You can roam in post-apocalyptic Nevada, soar through a variety of spaceways, or slay a truly staggering number ...

Lost Pages of Taborea: Finding time to play Runes of Magic

Ever since my semester started up, I've had to learn new ways to budget my time. My schedule cuts right through the middle of every day, which is both good and bad. I don't have to get up at an obscene hour for class, and I'm not in school through the night. It still makes it hard to play Runes of ...
