The Stream Team: Building your first ship in ArcheAge

One of the best things about ArcheAge is sailing around the world, whether you are looking for trouble on the high seas or just exploring uncharted islands. And even though you can hitch a ride in a friend's boat (or even an enemy's if you are really brave), nothing beats owning your own. So today...

Lost Continent: Carebearing your way through ArcheAge

ArcheAge is, in part, an open PvP MMORPG. "In part" is the key phrase there, and I've had a few people ask me if it's possible to play XL's sprawling sandpark opus without getting ganked or otherwise forced into an ill-fitting playstyle. Not only is it possible, but PvE has made up the...

Trion responds to ArcheAge's 10 percent patron discount controversy

Things are never dull in the ArcheAge community. The latest brouhaha, as exemplified by this 100-page (as of press time) threadnaught, has to do with the fact that patron account holders haven't received the 10 percent cash shop discount that was promised pre-release. Massively contacted Trion...

RIFT previews the Glacial Maw dungeon

It's nice that RIFT's upcoming expansion is named Nightmare Tide because it really gives you a clear idea of what you're walking into. So when you read about the upcoming level 65 dungeon, Glacial Maw, it doesn't really surprise you. A dungeon that takes place burrowed inside of the carcass of the...

Jukebox Heroes: ArcheAge's soundtrack

ArcheAge is well-known for being one of the more beautiful MMO game worlds out there, but does its music stack up in comparison? The answer to that is a little yes and a little no. I got ahold of it several months ago, well before I was even paying attention to this game or its strong following. I...

Trion explains why ArcheAge uses Hackshield

Ever since ArcheAge's launch, Massively has been deluged with queries about Trion's use of Hackshield, an anti-cheating toolkit created by Korean company AhnLab, Inc. Western gamers aren't traditionally fond of such security programs; as of the time of this writing, even Hackshield's meager entry...

The Daily Grind: Do you deal with publisher shenanigans for a game you love?

I love ArcheAge. It's basically rekindled my passion for MMOs, and despite its design flaws and a godawful business model, it's easily my favorite genre title in quite some time. That said, Trion's acting like it's never done this before. The company's customer service is flat out terrible, as...

Here's some of the exploiting currently happening in ArcheAge

How's Trion's war against ArcheAge botters, exploiters, and cheaters currently going? Not so well if a recently released player video is an accurate barometer. A YouTuber named EraChanZ published a four-minute clip showing players abusing a teleport exploit to appear inside of a specialty...

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...

Previewing RIFT's new masteries system

Trion Worlds has today previewed the new "masteries" system coming in RIFT's Nightmare Tide expansion later this month. Masteries take the place of the soul points normally earned as players level up. Instead of spending soul points to take new powers in your soul trees (which would have created...
