Having started to play a Necromancer in Guild Wars 2 lately, I've been thinking about how odd it is that some MMO classes are kind of, well, evil. Or at least really, really gross, unless you think that playing with corpses is something a normal, well-adjusted citizen does. Summoning zombies, con...

A lot of the people I introduce to EVE Online ask about the possibility of playing for free by buying game time codes with in-game ISK.
