I'll confess that even after having chatted with Trion Worlds CEO Scott Hartsman about this new Trove project and reading Shawn's very early impressions piece, I was still having difficulty understanding what, exactly, this game was about. Was it just some sort of kiddy LEGO hack-and-slasher with a...

Trove is an interesting new title from Trion Worlds, a game set in a strange, blocky open world that is there just waiting to be explored and built. Beau Hindman is willing to do it, even though the game is in "open alpha." If you enjoy open worlds, exploration, building, and destroying monsters, y...

From an outsider's perspective, Picroma's Cube World might look like yet another Minecraft clone. It has the same blocky appearance and voxel design of Mojang's money-printing sandbox, and though the color palette is brighter and the graphics more crisp, it would be easy to dismiss the title as a "...

In July earlier this year, indie developer Picorama's part-Minecraft, part-Diablo sandbox title Cube World made its way into a paid alpha stage of development, granting players access to the game's alpha in exchange for an early purchase. Despite some missteps, there were plenty of eager fans will...

Ever hit that point in life when sleep just gets in the way of all you want to do? Maybe it's a gaming marathon worthy of the record books or just a late-night raid you absolutely HAVE to be there for (you know if you aren't, your piece will drop and some PUG person will get it!). Or maybe it is an...

What's hotter than standing in the way of a fire-breathing dragon's sneeze? Right now, my town! I didn't want to turn the stove on last night and chance my place spontaneously combusting from the extra heat, so I went outside and fried up an omelet on the sidewalk.

I've complained about genderlocked classes in MMOs before, but the truth is, genderlocking is abnormal for MMOs.

Boy, I really wish I could tell you all the great stuff about this week's Stream Team adventures, but it's all under NDA. I mean, it's going to be EPIC, with a capital E! (And P and I and C, for that matter.) The adventures, the intrigue, the... but alas, I have pledged on the honor of my goldfish...
