We've been raving about it for months and this week's GamesCom gave the press and, more importantly, the public a chance to get down and dirty with BioWare's biggest project to date.

From the deep recesses of GamesCom comes the one threat that no one predicted. The arrival of... "them." Yes, "they" have appeared. All eight of them.

Earlier this month, we had a chance to sit down for a developer tour of the new Weeping Coast area in Runes of Magic. The devs at Frogster were kind enough to walk us through the entire area, making sure to point out key spots along the way. Since we are not able to make it out to GamesCom, this e...

Holy giant roosters, Final Fantasy XIV gameplay footage has already made its way online courtesy of Gamescom and Gamevideos! Plus, the footage shows off some -- mildly standard -- combat sequences as well. To be fair, we're sure this video would be a lot more exciting if we understood German. As i...
