Massively reader Yarr treats us to a gorgeous screenshot of one of his Aion characters for today's One Shots: While I don't really have a main in Aion, this gal is one of my favorites. Although she defends her home as an Assassin, she spends most of her time cooking, or wheeling and dealing on...

Puzzles Pirates is pretty deceiving when you first look at it. The decade-old game looks closer to what you might have expected from LEGO Universe than it does a strategic, puzzle-based combat game. But as you get more into the basics of the game, you realize that many of the tricks up Puzzle Pir...
