Another year has passed for Star Trek Online, and it can be described as tumultuous at best. It was a year that contained very little story-based content provided by the developer, Cryptic Studios, as it was put through the proverbial ringer -- first by being sold off, and second by being purc...

It's been a little over two years now that I've been writing a regular column on City of Heroes, and in one sense that still feels very strange to me. I'm guessing that the novelty of doing this for a living is never going to entirely go away, for reasons that really have nothing to do with the t...

Every week, WoW Insider brings you Shifting Perspectives for cat, bear, restoration and balance druids. This Tuesday, Allison's grip on reality is less certain than her grip on a bottle of cough syrup. Sadly, I do not have a cool poem for this past year. 2011 was not a particularly poetic expe...

You know what I love about the end of each year? The lists. Man, but I'm a sucker for lists, especially when they come in "best of" varieties. In the lull between Christmas and New Year's, there typically isn't a lot happening in the world of entertainment, so it's a good time to look back before...

The past vs. the future. The Year of the Rabbit vs. the Year of the Dragon. In short, 2011 vs. 2012 -- which will ultimately prove to be the better year for MMOs? Oh sure, you might say it's unfair to compare a known quantity with an unknown one, but since when has that stopped MMO players fro...

Bearheals: (on archaeology) The smallest distance between two points is a bunch of erratic zigzags. After patch 4.3 went live in late November, class columnists and commenters busied themselves with the new 5-mans and Dragon Soul raid. I think it's safe to say that Raid Finder problems have...

@Druidis4fite The AH Fee structure is a regressive tax on the poor. #OccupyGregStreet @Warcraft This movement doesn't seem to have a clear message. -- CM Lylirra As with all BlizzCon-related months, October was jam-packed and probably the busiest month of 2011 for the site. However, t...

Curulan: Pigeon raid boss. I love it. GET ON THIS, BLIZZARD. September was pretty much all patch 4.3, all the time. The PTR didn't actually go live until close to the end of the month, but we definitely made up for lost time when it did. Transmogrification thoughts still dominated the site'...

Candida: Knitting Grandmas would be an awesome guild name. Money, money, money, money. Money! August saw an avalanche of money and gold-related discussion as Blizzard announced that Diablo 3 would feature a real-money Auction House. Oh, and Blizzard registered Mists of Pandaria as a trade...

Rekon13: To make you look at other gearing options, we've decided to remove other gearing options. July was a very busy month for the site. Patch 4.2 hit in late June and with it, the Molten Front, Firelands, and a slew of mechanics and policy changes for the game. The latter is something y...

Merry Christmas to all those of you who celebrate! June 2011 was a pretty patch-oriented month. 4.2 was still on the PTR, and we slowly wound our way through the content there, writing as we went. As with patch 4.1, it was a late entrant in the month it debuted, so you'll see most of our commenta...

By Crom! Can you believe we've made it through another year? Well, almost, at any rate. Technically there are a few days left in 2011, but as I'll be taking some of them off for the purposes of gaining weight and opening presents, it seems like as good a time as any to do a little recapping. S...

Does WoW ever creep you out? NoYou Read trade for more than 20 seconds and you can make a strong case against evolution. CloakedDrifter The Goldshire inn on Moon Guard. *shudder* MattKrotzer It creeps me out that one of the quest writers has such a fascination with poop, and making ...

Afrozombie: At least we know why it took so long for them to release (the new version of Zul'Gurub). They were stuck waiting for (Bloodlord Mandokir) to finally find and solve his sword, Zin'rokh, Destroyer of Worlds. You know all that editorializing and back-and-forth discussion you saw ...

Rai Yer a wizard, Harrypotterarthasdk. In marked contrast to February, this was a fabulous time for the arts and WoW Moviewatch. However, what jumps out at me most about March are the number of things that, with the benefit of hindsight, we realized Blizzard was already thinking about for M...

Croe We even had a tank go to the first boss in Stonecore for farming a mount, and dropped immediately afterwards. Snuzzle He's gonna be joining and dropping Stonecore for a while then, 'cause the mount drops from the second boss. This was a relatively slow month for WoW Moviewatch, al...

Revrant: (What's the best new quest of the expansion?) The Bears Up There. Climb a tree, grab bear cubs, throw them screaming through the air, and they explode if you miss. Good gravy -- this is the third year I've written a Best of the Year series for WoW Insider! Longtime readers will probabl...
