Star Trek Online Re-Review
MMORPG.com's Patrick Gerard takes a new look at Star Trek Online seven months after the game's release. See what he discovered in our re-review of STO.

This is a Federation centric game which is doing an increasingly admirable job of reflecting the shows but looking for life outside the Federation as anything but a novelty will never satisfy you. The developers have conceded that it would be impossible to create equal content for all factions and are largely banking on faction-neutral content and the upcoming user generated content system to occupy Klingons and other factions down the road.

Jon Wood: Things SWTOR Isn't
In his latest MMORPG.com column, Managing Editor Jon Wood takes a look at the Internet's perception of Star Wars: The Old Republic. There is a lot of hype, speculation and misinformation floating around the 'Net these days and Jon takes those things and the people who post them to task.

Upon reading almost any thread that even whispers the name of this game, I come across a lot of people who are at best confused about the kind of game that this is going to be and at worst continually trolling based on what they know are foundational design decisions that aren't going to be changed at this point.

This week's Game of the Week is Blizzard's 800lb. Gorilla, 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 MMOG's while still remaining the game to beat. With two expansions under its belt, Blizzard is showing no signs of slowing down, as they work towards the game's third expansion, Cataclysm, which is expected to launch sometime this year.

As the months roll onward, information and media from the upcoming expansion has been flowing out at a steady pace. More recently, Blizzard hosted the 2010 BlizzCon which was filled with numerous panels related to the upcoming Cataclysm expansion.
