Alex Ziebart

Sometimes you'd like to know that there are other MMOs out there, right? It's not all WoW, all the time! Our sister site Massively can provide you with everything you need to know about all of the other MMOs around: past, present and future.
HK-47 steals the show in PAX The Old Republic trailer
It was starting to feel like forever since any new information had come out of The Old Republic's well-oiled marketing machine. Happily, a new video released at PAX 2010 has temporarily quenched the drought and simultaneously provided a glimpse into ground-based combat in BioWare's upcoming Star Wars opus. Come for the combat footage, stay for the cameo from everybody's favorite snarky droid.
PAX 2010: Guild Wars 2 hands-on
Guild Wars 2 is one of the most anticipated upcoming MMO releases, right alongside giants like Final Fantasy XIV and Star Wars: The Old Republic. This past weekend at PAX, Massively's Rubi Bayer had the opportunity to tackle the game head on with her own two hands.
CCP unveils EVE Online's latest expansion
EVE made its fair share of noise at PAX as well. In addition to a brand new trailer (embedded at the top of this post), CCP also officially announced its latest expansion, which will bring improvements to a number of areas of play.

DDO Update 7 bringing half-elves, half-orcs, more
DDO's Update 7 is coming sometime in October, and Massively spent some time at PAX chatting with members of the Turbine crew. They had some extremely exciting things to say about Update 7, including new races and a new raid.
Hands on with Rift: Planes of Telara
The dungeon portal loomed ahead as a developer pushed a headset into my hands. "You heal," he said to me, then moved on to the other four players standing next to me. "You tank. You three DPS. Don't worry too much; you're all a little over-leveled for this dungeon. Let us know when you're ready."
Massively Speaking episode 113
Massively Speaking is back with Shawn and Rubi as they're joined by Ben Lavery of Maverick Media.
