It must have been serendipity that got me into the WildStar beta the week after the Engineer was announced (well, that or a PR push, but what are the odds?). As my friends, my family, and those who come within shouting distance of my voice know, I am always drawn to Engineers in video games. Whethe...

You'll want to bring along plenty of armor, you'll want ranged weapons, and you'll want some nice bulky robots to keep you safe in the most dire of circumstances.

This was perhaps why I played a Hunter in World of W...

Let me just admit it: I have a collecting problem. That's not to say I'm very good at collecting -- right now I'm working towards Mount Parade very, very slowly -- but once I start collecting something I have an urge to collect everything. (Or, in internet vernacular, "ALL THE THINGS.") For a while...

Ever since I ran The Secret World's Issue #7 content and explored the Nursery, I've become fixated on the idea of owning a nannybot of my very own. I mean, they're ludicrous to the point of being awesome: a hulking RoboCop suit with an emoticon face (which is smiley for happy and frowny for you're-...
