Whenever you hear of a studio laying off 60 people, you have to think things aren't going well. Sometimes it's a matter of bad luck and circumstance, but sometimes it's a case of bad management and poor decisions. Current and former employees of Carbine Studios attribute it to the latter, with the ...

How's your server's population in WildStar since the switch to megaservers? Does it still feel a little empty?

The megaservers for WildStar have just been deployed. Will Massively's MJ see an increase in activity while roaming about the Aurin wilds? Perhaps not so much in the lower levels, but maybe the promise of more robust populations will entice players back to the world of Nexus and cause a rash of rer...

It's been a quiet couple of weeks for WildStar, which could be taken as indicating the team is making major changes, or it could just be pre-patch preparations that are taking half of forever. It'd look the same either way. We know the next patch is coming, and we have some idea of what it's going ...

Birds? I don't hate them, but I don't trust them either. Anything that can travel passportless with impunity is something to be wary of, especially if it has access to flight without clearing it with the FAA. And ever since the bird flu scare, I'm quite sure that our feathered "friends" are out to ...

Definitely the latter if they are evil Dominion, and especially if they are right near the edge of a cl...
