Thankfully Bless Online will allow players to do exactly that, with the game's current closed beta test adding 30 mounts for player...

When World of Warcraft introduced flying mounts with The Burning Crusade, I immediately saw it as a mistake, a viewpoint that I maintain until this day. For those that disagree, you have to address why the studio itself kept coming up with reasons to "ground" pilots in subsequent expansions. I thin...

There are a lot of reasons why I'm super-duper pumped about RIFT's new water-themed expansion, but shark mounts that can "walk" on land are not among those reasons. Not only are these a safety hazard for anyone who grew up with a mortal fear of sharks after his babysitter let him watch Jaws when he...

If, like me, you bought the Grand Expedition Yak (at an obscene price) because you just had to have a reforger on your mount -- maybe you have as big a problem as I do with the concept of monetary value, I don't know -- you were probably slightly saddened to discover that reforging was leaving the...

I've got a guildie who's a bit insane. He is notorious for staying subscribed to MMOs he's not playing, sinking tons and tons of money into these games but not logging in. Is he doing it to support developers? Nope. He does it for the veteran rewards. Seriously. He once told me he stayed subbed to ...
