Razer Naga MMO Gaming Mouse Review
MMORPG.com's Carolyn Koh puts the Razer Naga MMO gaming mouse through its paces in this latest review.

I wonder if 4800 / 5200 /5600 dpi sensitivity in a mouse really makes a difference in MMO gaming, so I was a little skeptical when I received the Razer Naga, a mouse purportedly made for MMO gamers.

Guild Wars 2: Exclusive Interview
MMORPG.com's Garrett Fuller gets the ArenaNet team to spill the beans on Guild Wars 2's combat system, technology, social activities, and more in this exclusive interview.

That projectiles, even though they are conceptually simple, have so many cool behaviors. For example, an arrow shot from a bow doesn't just go from you to your enemy and disappear; instead it can be reflected, set on fire, bounce between several enemies, or return to you after hitting a target, healing you when it hits.

This week's Game of the Week goes to the game named MMORPG.com's 2009 Most Improved MMO, Age of Conan.

Being named Most Improved MMO can be a double edged sword. On the one hand, it implies that the game was somehow flawed before, while on the other, it says that the game developers have worked hard to make the game better.

Both of these statements are true of Funcom's Conan as it moved from a rocky start to the point where the game's first expansion, Rise of the Godslayer, is beginning to build momentum.

As the new expansion moves closer and closer to launch, Funcom is letting more and more information slip out to the public. This past week, Funcom revealed that the expansion will include a "random encounters" feature for players traveling to Khitai.
