This has all changed this week, as Aura Kingdom passed the Steam Greenlight process and has become available throu...

Ah, Ryzom. To this day it remains one of my favorite MMORPGs for several reasons.

This is exactly why an MMO developer need...

It's been all gloomy around here lately, hasn't it? Well there's a good reason for that, as you might know. Luckily I have survived the cuts that affected much of the AOL Tech network, although that means that Rise and Shiny and MMObility, my two other regular columns, will be consolidated into thi...

I've had a love/hate relationship with Raptr, the free game tracking service and social network. I used it much of the time when it first came out but then fell out of love with it when it stopped detecting many of the indie and browser-based MMOs that I played. I picked it up again recently and ha...
