When it comes to fantasy MMOs, we've been there so long and done that so often that we hardly think about the framework that supports these worlds and our assumptions about them. This is doubly the case when it comes to who we are: We are always talented warriors or wizards who are out to do nobl...

It's indicative of Valve's creativity that we don't play Team Fortress 2, but we still get excited about the game's hilarious updates. In its most recent patch, TF2 received the new "Highlander" mode, in which teams are composed of nine players -- but each team can only have one of each class. In o...

We've all seen some Alliance kiddie named "ikillhoarde" or a Warlock named "ifearyoudie." After all, what Horde wouldn't run for cover from a Hunter who's named after his very death? And woe is the person who actually thinks he can get away from a Warlock's fear. Phear the lock, baby. Add titles int...

First, we have characters who actually DO regenerate health over time, proven in both movies and tv show. This...

We'd like to promise that we're going to stop making jokes about the upcoming Highlander video game from Eidos, but it ain't gonna happen (we're still frantically trying to find a use for the word "quickening" as a pun). While it may be amusing to poke fun at the aging franchise, we must admit that...

When we told you about a new trailer for Highlander Tuesday, we bemoaned the lack of information about the game (or any art that included actual people for that matter). Today, it seems as if our prayers have been answered with some new images from the game giving us a glimpse at the titular Immor...

In our many travels, we have met all manner of geek, nerd, and weirdo. Sure, we all know about Trekkies and Browncoats and Jedi wannabes, but there is another more secret class. We are speaking, of course, of the Highlander nerd. The kind of nerd that swings a replica samurai sword as he screams "t...

When you don't know much about a game (definitely the case with Eidos' upcoming Highlander title) you have to kind of go with your gut. After watching this new trailer for the game though, we have to admit that our guts are pretty stymied. OK, so let's start with the things that make us nervo...
