A Mild-Mannered Reporter: Post-survival

So we've had a week to adjust to the new state of being for City of Heroes.

The Daily Grind: Would a cheaper subscription get you playing more?

Let's face it - things are rough insofar as the general economy goes. People are being much more cautious with their cash, and especially now, they want much more value for their dollar when it comes to entertainment spending. What used to be OK at $15 may no longer be such a good deal, and with m...

Blizzard: World of Warcraft will do fine, global economic collapse be damned

Alright, so the sky is falling. Pretty soon, the world will be dominated by mohawks, black leather and hand-built muscle cars in a never-ending deathmatch over who gets to eat the roadkill.
