Enter at Your Own Rift: A six-month retrospective

About a year ago I was on a little show called The Rift Podcast with Arithion, Desi, and Trion Community Manager Cindy Bowens. It's hard to believe, but at the time, there was just a trickle of buzz surrounding RIFT and only a few details were available about the game. We're now six months into...

Preparing for the apocalypse (again): GamersFirst on Fallen Earth's F2P shift

Today was my last day in Fallen Earth. My subscription ran out, so I was cut off from everything: glorious crafting, expansive exploration, black humor, and gas mask fashionware.

Enter at Your Own Rift: The no-quest challenge

OK, I know you all probably want to talk about the news that addons are coming to RIFT, but the truth is that it's not that big of an issue for me.

Lost Pages of Taborea: Where's the fun with world events?

Borrowing a lesson from one of Justin's Road to Mordor articles, I decided to tackle Runes of Magic's world events. I'm talking about those repeatable events sprinkled around the world, events we'll be getting a lot more of when Chapter 4 hits, events anyone can jump into for fun and profit. It's...

The Daily Grind: Is it better for devs to try and fail than never to have tried at all?
