The Daily Grind: Have you ever enjoyed a grind despite the grind?

I've been fishing my ass off in ArcheAge. You kinda have to if you want to make a virtual career out of it, because it takes a while -- and a lot of clicking -- to get your fishing skill from newb to 10,000 and thus to the real meat of the system. This is clearly a grind, and ordinarily I loathe...

The Stream Team: Becoming an ArcheAge juror

If you've made it to level 30 in ArcheAge without any crime or infamy points (or whittled them away back to nothing), you get to embark on the jury quest.

What do I want to see in EverQuest Next and Landmark? I know that is a question that all of us have asked ourselves and each other. Heck, even the developers ask us this!

Enter at Your Own Rift: How Nightmare Tide brought me back to RIFT

Wow -- it's been a year and a half since I last sat down to pen this column. Obviously, around that time I had left the game and focused on other writing projects here at Massively. It wasn't a bad break-up with my former stomping grounds in Telara; it was a "goodbye for now" type of situation....
