It's time once again for me to throw out my awards for the best of free-to-play, indie, and oddball MMOs, a real niche-within-a-niche. It might seem that I am assigned many of these titles as though I were some modern day Mikey, but the truth is that I get a huge thrill out of finding a new game bu...

In the MMOverse, we talk often about veterans -- those old-timers who have stuck with a game through thick and thin, playing steadfastly as the years go by even when others head off for new horizons. And with a nod to their dedication, we pay homage those stalwart members of the community who jus...

Sometimes you just need a place where you can chill out, jump on the back of your favorite four-legged friend, and go off on an adventure.

And those changes are all in effect starting now. But not all change is bad (remember that collection of coins you found under the couch cushio...

Oh pretty ponies, is there anything you can't do? Any wisdom that you haven't already mastered? Any look that isn't absolutely stunning? Any swish of your tail that doesn't grant wishes? I think not! I'm sure that reader Michelle agrees with me, since she sent in this picture of her little pony fr...

It's time once again for the Frindie Awards, my attempt to shine some light on the best indie, browser-based, free-to-play, and unusual MMOs that are all-too-often ignored by press -- and players. This one is for the little guys! Well, mostly. It's also for those games that seem to have passed un...

Star Stable is what many would refer to as a "kid's game."

From horror movies to storms, there is always a lull before the stuff really hits the fan. And right now is the lull in the storm that is holiday preparation. It's just a short span of time that offers a breather between the insanity that is Black Friday and the rush of all else that comes with t...

I should have known something was up. I just should have trusted my gut and avoided this game, but no.
