What do needles and MMOs have to do with each other? Hopefully, normally, thankfully nothing. However, Age of Wushu has drawn inspiration from the Chinese technique and philosophy of acupuncture to draw up its character-building Meridian system. Meridians are sort of like talent trees that can...

One of the things I love about RIFT is its smaller, more intimate feel. Don't get me wrong -- there's still plenty of space to explore and get lost in, but the space that is present is used to great effect and isn't just there to make it seem bigger for bigger's sake. This is echoed in the two capi...

We're just over the border into the new year, but it looks like there was one last item on the chopping block. Near Death Studios, t...

So far as we can tell, this is the first major product introduction from Sooloos since it was acquired by Meridian Audio Limited in December 2008. For those who've already plunked down for one of the company's music management devices, you'd be better off holding your ears and scrolling down with ...

In tough economic times, it's not unusual to see consolidation among companies as big fish gobble up smaller ones. We didn't really see Meridian's acquisition of Sooloos in our crystal ball, but there's some definite synergy going on here; with Meridian's adoption of SpeakerLink for ethernet distr...

Player vs. Player gameplay has undergone a drastic change in recent years. Games like Meridian 59 and Ultima Online didn't pull any punches. Anyone could kill anyone anywhere, and the penalties could be quite severe. When you died In Meridian or UO, you dropped all of your gear. The person who kill...
