It's all in the numbers: 1.9, 2.0, 2.6, 2.7, and of course, 3.0. No, these aren't digits hidden in a mathematician's fortune cookie; they are all popular patches in Aion. In the case of a few of them, they wore big-patch pants and got their own name. Two of those were even heralded as expansions....

How do you like your patch content delivered? Do you like it better when Blizzard holds off on patches and delivers lots of content in one go (the development cycle of Wrath saw several large patches, delivering raids and new quests and class changes in large chunks)?

"Engines?" "Go Flight!" "Life support?" "Go Flight!" "Brutal politics and savage mining in the dark, hard vacuum of space?" "Go Flight!" And thus, with a proud tear in the corner of our eye, we salute the liftoff of the first stage of EVE Online's latest expansion, Incursion. Although the expansio...

Times they are a changin', and as Patch 3.2 hits the PTR with a new wealth of mechanics aimed at making the journey to 80 that much easier, why not take a moment to look back at how Azeroth has changed? Leveling used to take a long time, and one of the first things a friend told me was that "the gam...
