Choose My Adventure: Rediscovering the simple joy of flight in No Man’s Sky

Boy is it good to be back here. I'll be honest, not much of what I did while flying around in No Man's Sky was terribly different from what I'd normally do in the game before the big ol' Beyond multiplayer update. That said, it has been long enough that I forgot how this game does a lot of...

Hands-on: Neverwinter post-Uprising is a mixed bag for newbies and vets

A long time ago, for a few months after it launched, I was an avid Neverwinter player. I loved its visceral combat, and to this day I'd rate its take on the Ranger as perhaps my favorite class in any video game. I made it to the original level cap and got fairly well-geared. But in the end I...
Yip?

Guild Wars 2 is planning a nice big expansion boost in September

So let's assume for the moment that you are hopelessly far behind Guild Wars 2's curve at the moment for whatever reason.

It was just a matter of time before the apology came out - we all know how this script goes. Yesterday we covered the weekend blow-up between Reddit and Apex Legends staff, as Respawn executive producer Drew McCoy responded to an expletive-laden player insult with a pointed clapback for its writer, all set against a backdrop of problematic monetization...

The Daily Grind: Do you vote in MMO player elections?

This week I spent a bit of time perusing the Star Wars Galaxies Legends Discord, where candidates for the player Senate are making stump speeches and pitches for why we ought to saunter over to the polls and vote them into office.
