Still, the game had those elements that made it a vast, varied world that I could live in, not just play through. It had some of the best classes ever created. It had a superb housing system, with an ability that was then taken and incorporated into SOE’s other games. Bless you Vanguard for giving us decorating on the Z axis! It also had a brotherhood system that would ensure that you’d never out-level your friends and make grouping and doing the content together impossible. That was definitely a treasure! Suddenly you weren’t tied down to only playing when your friends could. You could actually still enjoy the combat content of the game those times you couldn’t both/all be on; you didn’t … [Read more...] about Massively Overthinking: Our five favorite MMORPGs of all time

With that in mind, we thought now might be a good time to take a look back at Mirror of Discovery — for those that may have not delved into it yet. (If you still haven’t checked out Age of Discovery, we took a look at it a while back.) … [Read more...] about Mirror Of Discovery Is The Middle Chapter In Star Trek Online’s Building Drama

Why not inject a bit of new facts and trivia in your column? How about an interesting story as an appetizer to the main dish? Put something that almost all people can relate to, something that is so familiar to everyone’s lives, and something that, once read, the reader will automatically say, “Yeah, it happened to me, too”. Finding some common ground among strangers is one of the best ways to have them pause a bit and listen to you. Remember, this is the introduction we are talking about. The first few lines of your entry have to be eye-catching and pause-worthy. Never disappoint your readers. They chose to spend some more time on what you’re trying to say so make it good.It is in these first few lines that the reader will decide as to whether or not to go on reading and switch pages and get back to work. “Hmmmm, go on.
