The setting is fresh, melding some aspects of our favorite sci-fi properties (cough Firefly cough) with a a health...

How many times have you found yourself asking, "Why won't the devs just listen?!" For any loyal MMO fan, it can be extremely frustrating to see feedback seemingly get ignored, and sometimes it feels as if there's a huge wall separating the fans from the developers. Linda Carlson, SOE's Directo...

Quick! Choose the statement that best describes your high school education: A) School prepared me perfectly for everything I would experience once I got out into the real world. B) I feel that high school had one or two useful things to offer but otherwise was pretty useless. C) I fe...

The WildStar afterparty at PAX East was a lot of fun. The part where I managed to injure myself in the process? Not so much fun. This is not the first con at which WildStar had a presence, but this year it was not just a presence but the presence. You literally couldn't walk down a hallway wit...

This year's PAX East is the first one to take place in a post-launch world for Guild Wars 2. Last year, one of the big rewards for panelgoers was scoring a beta key; this year, anyone can grab a copy right now without a problem (just a fee).

When you start following a game, you always worry that it won't live up to your expectations. It's inevitable, really. I didn't fall in love with WildStar after years of playing; I fell in love based upon a trailer and a design philosophy that appealed to me. The game itself could be far remov...

I don't know what it is about steam engines, brass goggles, and copious amounts of clockwork mechanisms that excites me so much, but the steampunk genre has a special place in my heart. With that in mind, it should be no surprise that when I discovered that Mechanist Games, the studio behind upc...

Yesterday was a big day for existing WildStar fans, as it was a chance to finally take a look at the game's housing system.
