Why MMOs Fail: A Look At Why Some Games Failed To Break Into The Genre

Many MMOs have come and gone over the years. Kanishka takes a look at why MMOs fail, specifically honing in on two of the biggest ones in recent memory.

With Fallen Earth Back With New Servers This Week, Is there Another MMORPG You Would Love To See Brought Back?

Fallen Earth is back this week after just days ago announcing it would be returning with Classic servers, which has seen many in the MMORPG community celebrate this unexpected surprise. But if you had your way, is there any other MMO you'd love see return unexpectedly and unlooked for?

My question for Carbine and you all is: does WildStar point the player in too many divergent directions or is more always better in an MMO trying to please so many playstyles?

Story of the Week: WildStar Revealed

This week's reigning news king deservedly goes to Carbine Studios and their newly announced MMORPG: WildStar Online. Though there was stiff competition coming out of Gamescom 2011, this bright new star (pun intended) has everyone talking.
