The Daily Grind: What's your favorite vanity pet?

What does a vanity pet do for my gameplay? If we're talking about adding to my combat potential, it does absolutely nothing. But if we're talking about providing bragging rights, companionship, amusement value, and another layer of personal customization, such a pet has plenty to offer. Right...

Lord of the Rings Online patch offers more cosmetic pet options

Lord of the Rings Online's Update 13.1 is on its way, and with it comes several refinements to the new cosmetic pet system.

The Breaking of Isengard: A play session with Lord of the Rings Online's Update 13

It's strange to realize that Lord of the Rings Online players have been exploring Volume III of the epic story for four years now. With Update 13: The Breaking of Isengard, all of that is going to end. Volume III will wrap up, Saruman will get what's coming to him, and players will have a new...

MMO Family: Four ways to improve kid-friendly MMOs

Right now, there's a small war going on in our house. It's winter, we're all cooped up inside, and we're interested in different games. What's particularly interesting is that my kids will tolerate most of the games I play and join in, except for one: Star Wars: The Old Republic. They aren't...

The Daily Grind: What vanity pet would you like to see in your favorite MMO?

Last week Turbine announced all sorts of huge updates for Dungeons and Dragons Online in 2012. Among exciting talk of expansions, Druids, and level cap increases, one little item may have slipped under some folks' radar. Vanity pets are coming to DDO in 2012 -- specifically, "fun and cute DnD...
