It's always hard to see a holiday celebration go -- especially if you haven't finished everything up! So Massively's MJ jumps back into EverQuest II to make sure all her Frostfell activities are completed, and grinds up a few more tokens in the infamous holiday instance (Yeti suit optional). She'll...

I don't typically do MMO holiday events, but last weekend I was roped into checking out Lord of the Rings Online's Winter-home shindig. Most of it was standard grind-for-reward-tokens stuff, but there was one bit set inside a theatre that was pretty memorable. Members from the audience were pluc...

Christmas 2013 -- it's quite a different experience in The Secret World than in other MMORPGs. Instead of offering some colorful cutesy characters based on the jolliest aspects of the season, TSW's festivities draw on the darkest parts of our lore to bring you a Christmas devil, a demoness, and und...

There's no place like Frostfell. No matter how long you've been absent from EverQuest II, and no matter how many expansions come and go, you've known that there was always one thing you could be sure would stay the same year in and year out: Frostfell's Wonderland Village. Well, no more! Like Fr...

Merry Christmas, all! You might be engaged in all manner of festive activities this morning or perhaps just enjoying some peace and quiet and goodwill toward all. There might even be a hint of gift-giving and -receiving going on as well today. I think it's awesome being a gamer geek around Chris...

Last year I celebrated Christmas with y'all by sharing several holiday music tracks from MMOs, and this year I thought I'd keep the tradition alive. It's not always the easiest thing to find holiday-specific music from these games, as not every game bothers to make new tunes for time-limited events...

'Twas the stream before Christmas and all through EverQuest II, Massively's MJ was finding there's just so much to do! There's the all new Frostfell Wonderland Village to explore, and snowballs to gather and quests galore. Help the Gigglegibbers be part of the fun, Then save all of Frostfell w...

The problem with people asking, "What do you want for the holidays" is that most of the things you actually want aren't valid answers. What would I like? I'd like to see Final Fantasy XIV adapt its PvP advancement series for PvE purposes and have housing that people can actually afford. I'd like to...

Nothing brings out the retrospective spirit in us all like the end of another year, and ArenaNet has indulged in a visual remembrance of 2013 with a new Guild Wars 2 video that thanks players for a wonderful year. Reminisce with the devs about defeating the Molten Alliance, electing Captain Ellen K...

There's snow mercy with TERA's winter update this year, as the free-to-play title started a massive snowball fight this week as a way to celebrate the holiday season. The Wintera Snowfield is a new 10v10 battlefield where players will line up to take potshots at each other (in love, we assume). ...

It's that time of year again, folks -- the time when grandfather Valve slides down the chimney and offers you a huge pile of reasonably priced games. Yes, Steam's holiday sale is now in full effect, bringing with it some nice deals on a few MMO titles. Here's what we've found so far: Guns of I...

This holiday season isn't all about cute little elves and brightly lit packages, especially not if you are a part of The Secret World. Instead of a giant jolly old elf dressed in red velvet, Massively's MJ is on the lookout for a cloven-hoofed beast with horns. Rumor has it he can even open a porta...

Field Journal is a bold and exciting new take on MMO journalism. Or the meandering ramblings of a chronic game-hopper. I haven't decided yet. Each week I'll be setting for myself a new "adventure" or "field trip" into a game to explore some aspect of it in detail. I'll be sharing my thoughts and ex...

Dota 2 was well on its way toward a happy Frostivus holiday, but as usual, things went wrong. Now Skeleton King is on the verge of turning to dust and needs a little help with his resurrection. That's where Massively's Mike Foster comes in. Tune in to get a look at the special holiday Wraith-Night ...

It's holiday time in Telara, and that means the Fae are back to their old tricks of hiding, stealing, and re-hiding gifts during RIFT's Fae Yule celebration. Will players find all the gifts stolen from the dragon cults that are scattered across the zone? If so, they can collect and complete six dif...
