Gods and Heroes: Rome Rising Features

Latest Feature for Gods and Heroes: Rome Rising

  • Massively Multiplayer Mailbag #1 - You Ask, We Answer

    Welcome to the first Massively Multiplayer Mailbag! The way it works is simple: You ask questions about the MMO industry, whether it be about the industry, a certain type of game, or a particular game itself, and I'll give the best answer I can based on the current available facts and observable trends, both past and future. It's like those sports columns where someone asks the columnist if he thinks Player A will hit 40 home runs or Team B will win the Super Bowl.
