It truly is filthy in The Secret World! Massively's MJ and her cleaning crew couldn't keep up with scrubbing out the Filth in last week's lair and it washed over them in a mighty painful way! But that doesn't mean that the dirt wins. No, she's heading back to conquer the sludge -- if not in the lai...

Last week, Massively's MJ and her team were unable to procure all the body parts necessary to summon the final boss in The Secret World's Egyptian Lair.

If there's one thing everyone here at Massively enjoys, it's playing MMORPGs with other people. Teaming with people makes almost anything fun. I have friends who play EVE who somehow claim that even mining can be fun, if done with friends. Unfortunately, Champions Online has a big problem with t...

Last week's closure of Brash Entertainment left a number of unanswered questions lingering, and as thrilled as we are that Saw is still set to get its game on, we're more curious to find out if Superman survived the publisher's swift implosion.
