Players often venture into the wilderness of online games alone and friendless, seeking out allies in the worlds they inhabit and making friends as they go along.

Oh, I'm sorry, that's S.T.A.L.K.E.R. According to a recent community Q+A on GSC's website, home of the critically-acclaimed shooter S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, the Ukranian developers are "seriously considering" entering the extremely crowded, and also extremely lucrative field of the MMOG....

After spending some six years developing the PC first-person shooter S.T.A.L.K.E.R., we figured it would be some time after the game's long-delayed release last March before we heard from Ukraine's GSC Game World again. We were, of course, wrong as not two months after the game's debut the studio c...

While Robin and I think it's a great idea, some people are in an outcry about the upcoming name-change service that Blizzard is offering. As Monsoon tells Blizzard on the forums:This is probably the worst ever decision ever made. How are we supposed to track ninjas and retards who may apply to our...

In today's online world of MySpace and Facebook, the trend seems to be against what the media has been warning the public of for years. Don't mention your name, your school, your town; wait, I meant, please join the "School X" and "Town Y" social groups! No one wants to feel anxious about their on...
