Featured Article: WAR Early Gathering Guide Warhammer Online Correspondent Patrick Buckley writes this guide to the early stages of the gathering professions in Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.

Warhammer Online: A new game, a new adventure, a new set of professions to explore and max out. And now, here's the question that is on everybody's mind... Where can I go to max out my profession the fastest? The answer to this question: Nowhere. That's right, in WAR; there is no place to easily max out your profession compared to another one. There are, however, places you can go that seem to be slightly better for leveling. At least it seems so for two out of the six professions.

On-Site: Videos

Several great videos went up on the site this week, including some exclusive footage of weapons and combat in Stargate Worlds which included a first look anywhere of the Archaeologist making use of his disguise ability.

Meanwhile across the Atlantic, the folks at The Chronicles of Spellborn prepared a video tutorial of their game's unique combat system. If you're someone who complains that there isn't enough innovation in the MMO market, this is something you should definitely take a look at.

This week's Game of the Week is Star Wars: The Old Republic.

The Old Republic's existence was one of the worst kept secrets in the game industry in 2008, being at the center of many rumors about a sequel to the Knights of the Old Republic series of RPGs. The game was even unofficially announced a few times, most notably by EA head John Riccitiello.

But now the Kowakian monkey-lizard is out of the bag, with BioWare and LucasArts announcing the game at a press conference last week. There are still very few solid details about the game, but rest assured MMORPG will use all the powers of the force, both light and dark (mostly dark), to keep you updated.
