Last week Massively's MJ showed you the safest and quickest way to nab five gilda stars in ArcheAge every day. Now she's going to (try to) show you how to pocket four in just a single trip.

One of the best things about ArcheAge is sailing around the world, whether you are looking for trouble on the high seas or just exploring uncharted islands.

It's not easy to track the progress of a racing sailboat -- you don't always have the free time (or free hands) to check a compass or run across the deck. Keeping tabs on a watercraft should be much less of a chore in the future, though, as Afterguard has released a heads-up display system for hig...

Last week, I dared venture into the realms of speculation about Aion's future, spurred by the announcement regarding update 4.0. Are my musings simply wishful thinking? Perhaps. But you can't blame me -- NCsoft started it! Until that point, I hadn't really given much thought to the next big thing...
