The Game Archaeologist: The care and feeding of older MMOs

When an MMO has reached a certain age and dwindled to a certain player population, what do you do with it? Do you put it out to pasture, nurture it, or put it down? With some of our older graphical MMOs approaching their 20th anniversaries, the question of what studios should do with aging...

The Stream Team: Grand finale edition, February 24 - March 2, 2014

Like two-hour movie specials that end a favorite series or the final fireworks on the Fourth of July, wouldn't it be neat if everything in life had a grand finale? You know, something really special to wrap everything up neatly before you have to move on? Granted, grand finales are by their very...

The Stream Team: Returning to Vanguard's Thestran dungeons

The trek through all of Vanguard's dungeons is a long one that spans the vast terrain of multiple continents. Thankfully, Vault of Heroes near Helgarad in Thestra has two low-level dungeons close together for players to enjoy: Cave of the Urugog and Vault of the Heroes. During the next Dungeon...

The Stream Team: Broadway edition, February 17 - 23, 2014

I've got Broadway on the brain. The drama, the music, the energy -- there's nothing quite like seeing a show live. And that is one of the great things about Massively TV! You don't have travel to that famed street to catch some fun-tastical live shows; you've got a front-row seat right at home....

When a game or big expansion is coming up, the spokespeople for studios like to hop on stage, grab that mic, and start proselytizing for all they're worth. And while some promises come to...

Jukebox Heroes: Elf music

As probably many of you know, I am no fan of the Elven menace. I won't rehash the reasons n this space, but I mention that because I do try to be a fair man. When I'm not trying to eradicate any pointy-eared immortal know-it-all tree-hugger in sight, I have been known to appreciate the Elves'...

The Stream Team: Alpha on the brain edition, February 3 - 9, 2014

And here we thought we'd have to pussyfoot around the fact that there is an alpha that has seduced away a segment of our staff! But since the NDA has been shot down, we are free to discuss it in detail as we want. Even better, we can also stream it for you! So that's exactly what's going to happen...

The Game Archaeologist: The rise, fall, and rescue of Vanguard

I have been wanting to do an article on the whole saga (small pun intended) of Vanguard for some time, and now that Brad McQuaid has returned with plans to make what appears to be a very similar game, I need no more prompting to do it. The significance of Vanguard's development, release, ongoing...

Some Assembly Required: Your home is your castle on Vanguard's Thestra

In a painful twist of fate, this week's scheduled Some Assembly Required wraps up the trilogy on Vanguard: Saga of Heroes housing that began with my first piece for this column highlighting Kojani homes way back in 2011. I say painful because we now know that Vanguard will be closing its doors...
