EVE Online: Re-Review
Adam Tingle has been playing EVE Online for a good long while and has plenty to say about a game that continues to outperform many of its more current competitors. See how EVE Online fares after all this time in our latest re-review.

This is also one of the last few MMORPG's to emphasize the "multiplayer" part. Making it within New Eden will require a few choice friends, and seeing some of the more dangerous and exciting sights will definitely require a buddy or two. Low secruity space offers some of the most intriguing and thrilling moments of PvP known to the genre. This FFA full loot area will see paranoid groups mining for the finest ores, or even cruising asteroid belts looking for unaware opportunists - whatever the case may be, low-sec will never provide a dull moment.

The Secret World: The Freeform Progression System
One of the most compelling features coming in Funcom's The Secret World is the way that characters will progress. In a new developer diary focused on the freeform progression system, MMORPG.com has partnered with Funcom to give our readers the first details about how exactly it will work.

A character can learn any, and potentially all (after playing for a very long time), of the abilities in the Secret World. This is done through playing and earning experience points from doing missions, defeating enemies, crafting and player versus player combat. The player starts near the center of the wheel and acquires more and more abilities as he progresses outwards towards the outer layer.

Game of the Week
This week's Game of the Week is Blizzard's 800lb. Gorilla Panda, World of Warcraft.

World of Warcraft launched in November, 2004, bringing to life the world of Azeroth, which is based on Blizzard's incredibly popular Warcraft RTS series.

The game has since enjoyed unprecedented success in the genre, boasting over 11 million players, and has stood the test of time by enduring the launches of many other AAA MMOGs while still remaining the game to beat. With three expansions under its belt, Blizzard is showing no signs of slowing down, as they work towards the game's fourth expansion, Mists of Pandaria, which was unveiled at this year's BlizzCon.

Mists of Pandaria will add the Pandaren, a Panda-like race to the game, along with the Pandaren's home continent of Pandaria. In addition, players can expect the requisite level cap bump (this time to 90), a completely revamped talent system, a new pet battle system, and the all-new Monk class.

We recently stopped by Blizzard HQ to check out the expansion, be sure to hit the link below for a blowout of information and impressions!
