This past Monday, I aired out my grievance that The Secret World's Issue 8 is far too tough for solo characters. Some of that game's playerbase seems to relish the title's tougher-than-standard challenge, while others do wish that the devs would lighten up a bit from time to time. For the most p...

Last week MJ espoused her belief that The Secret World Issue 8's scenarios are a terrific addition to the game and worthy of your consideration. As much fun as she's been having, my own experiences have been middling-to-poor with Issue 8. In my opinion, this is the first Issue that's really stumble...

There's been quite a fuss made about The Secret World's new scenarios lately. Some folks think they are great, some don't really like them, and some just find them too difficult -- especially on the solo setting. Massively's MJ doesn't doubt that last claim, but to date, she has taken viewers throu...

I did one of The Secret World's new instanced duo story dungeon things over the weekend, and while it was nothing revolutionary, I had a good time. There was something about the Council of Venice, and virtual reality training, and a return to an Egyptian hotel that now featured a bunch of helpless ...

Last week in The Secret World, Massively's MJ tested out only one version of one mode of one scenario with her group. But there are plenty more options to experience, from different locales to smaller group sizes (or no group at all!) to Elite or Nightmare modes. Will MJ and her group take a virtua...

With Issue #8 on the way next week for The Secret World, Creative Director Joel Bylos hinted at what lies beyond in his latest game director letter. While the fans have known that the first part of the long-awaited Tokyo zone would be coming with Issue #9, Bylos dropped a small bombshell that a ...

"I know your people are eager to go to Tokyo, but now is not that moment." - Arturo Castiglione, Council of Venice representative. Truer words have never been spoken. As much as players are looking forward to exploring Tokyo in The Secret World, that time is not yet at hand. (If you doubt, just ...

There's already a lot of flexibility for players in The Secret World's ability system, but there's room for more customization. Sure, you've got your eight active and eight passive abilities, but what if you could have eight more slots to customize your behavior? That's the core idea behind the new...

Do you feel it? That electric buzzing in the air of The Secret World (not to be confused with the sounds of buzzing heard by the bee-blessed)? I don't know about you, but I sure can. It's a very exciting time to be a fan of this Lovecraftian-horror-conspiracy-flavored game. Why, you ask? I am more ...
