One of my favorite things about classic MMOs is that they refused to give up on the "RPG" part of MMORPG. As in a tabletop game, in classic MMOs you were often given an opportunity to write a biography for your character, then import it into the game and attach it to your profile in some way so tha...

While the role-playing in EVE Online may not seem readily apparent, there is more of it going on than many may know about. With a rich history, many pilots look to the story of the empires to craft their own bios, or figure out how precisely they're going to interact with players from other empires...

Life and crime go together kind of like life and taxes, so it's fitting that The History Channel UK is bringing out HD versions of the Biography Channel and The Crime and Investigation Network to Sky's lineup. Between Bio's pledge to get serious about HD and the worldwide party that History is throw...

City of Heroes has a feature missing in some other games: a space to write your character's biography, or 'bio' as it is often called (not to be confused with the other meaning of bio, which causes characters to go afk in the middle of raids and the like, with fatal consequences).

When the Bio Channel first went HD late last year, we were pretty skeptical about the appeal of giving its content the stretch-o-vision treatment. But coming off of a 25-percent gain in viewership year-over-year, it has made the commitment to shoot all new content in HD. To kick things off, Bio has ...

I'm a rather avid raider, putting in a solid 20 hours a week on my Warrior. One of the major things about the time spent raiding is that it can be very precious. There is only so much time that 24 other people, plus appropriate class substitutions, can be available each week. It's critical that the ...

DirecTV signed a deal that'll make it the first HD provider to carry the Biography Channel in HD. No word if anyone else will carry this simulcast of the original Bio, but from the very start, half of their primetime programming will be produced in HD; and by the middle of next year, 65% of all the ...

The official website is just part of marketing a game these days -- nearly everyone's got one. One other thing is the same as well: they almost always have the same content!
