When Trion announced ArcheAge's western launch date last weekend, the first word that came to mind was finally. I'm not looking to bust anyone's chops here, but damn have I been waiting to play this game for forever. The only other MMO I've followed so closely from its public announcement to its r...

This is something that I can personally attest to. Waiting for the details when it's near expansion time can be absolutely agonizing. And yet, wait we must - there's simply no alternative.

Are you eagerly awaiting Diablo III's eventual release? Well, perhaps you shouldn't be quite that eager.

E3 starts today! While the show is much more focused on being a trade show rather than a gaming extravaganza, there's still a lot of new sand a wide variety of revelations that will no doubt come out of the convention.

So when the Dungeon Finder came out, it was pretty cool even for DPS. A 10 minute wait for a DPS slot for a 5-man dungeon is pretty insanely aweso...
