Remembering Robin Williams and Paint Flowers

In a world so focused on what tomorrow may bring, it’s easy to forget that the one, singular moment we have now– and that’s all we’re guaranteed– is fleeting.

Asheron’s Call: A Duo’s Return

Last month we gave your T. Striker’s impressions of his return to Asheron’s Call.

Warlords of Draenor Preview: Store All the Things!

For packrats like me, World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor will usher in a new era of bag space! Just a handful of changes, really, but on every toon I’ve tested so far, they added up to a great deal of freed-up space. I haven’t had that much bag space since… well, maybe not ever. [...]

WildStar: Is it Time for Server Merges?

One of the most prominent concerns players have during every MMORPG’s post-launch period is questioning how developers will deal with averaging out the game’s population.
