The Massively staffers were delighted to hear that one of our favorite quirky browser MMOs might be coming back from the dead. Fan projects such as Eleven and Children of Ur, the latter of which is in a playable pre-alpha, are often at an extreme disadvantage with such resurrection projects, as the...

You could be completely forgiven for thinking that Legend of Edda had breathed its last when the game shut down at the beginning of this year. It was cute, but it just couldn't sustain itself.

Resurrection is an old movie. It was one of the early generation of very long, story-driven machinima. Created in part for a contest, this version of Resurrection ran a mere 10 minutes. But if you liked it, then Bear on a Trampoline (the creator) suggested you check out the full half-hour version. ...
