This week, with the rollout of Archeage: Ascension, also known as "update 2.9", a host of new features have entere...

Is ArcheAge chat censorship right?
One aspect of mmorpg games that players tend to forget is that they're supposed to be fun. There's a reason why mmos are called games, and many players do log in to have a good time and escape the problems of the real world for a blessed few hours.

archeage censorship
More and more frequently, we're seeing mmo developers and publishers taking up the pitchfork and deciding to tackle the "toxic" behavior of their communities, but is it really their job to do so?

Are buy-to-play mmos becoming the new standard?
How much players have to pay in order to enjoy some online gaming has shifted dramatically over the years. When the modern mmorpg crawled out the proverbial MUD, players had to pony up a monthly subscription fee to enjoy some online adventuring.
