The Daily Grind: Do you get impatient with new MMO content?

The advantage to having a job that takes place at home and centers around video games is the fact that it's pretty easy to not just take time away from that job to blow through new content but actually justify it as work. "Sorry, I couldn't do the dishes, I had to level up this […]

Eight major unannounced MMO projects that are in the works

There's nothing more tantalizing nor frustrating than knowing that an MMO or MMORPG is in the works but hasn't been formally announced yet. We see many of these cross our paths here at Massively OP and thought that today might be a good time to compile them together. What upcoming projects are still under wraps […]

The Division 2 puts a rerun of its third season back into rotation

Seasonal content is fun and all, but it does run into the small problem of being somewhat less fun when you miss out on the season and have to live without getting all of the fun perks and rewards associated with it. If you're in precisely that situation with The Division 2, you'll be happy to […]

WoW Classic Burning Crusade's launch successfully navigated queues and DDOS attacks

Were you prepared? Can we stop making are-you-prepared jokes now? I sure hope so since Blizzard pushed Burning Crusade live for WoW Classic fans yesterday afternoon as promised.

The Daily Grind: How long can you grind content in an MMO?

It might seem kind of odd, but part of my problem with playing Final Fantasy XI back in the day was just about the time spent grinding in any given zone. Now, I've mentioned before how a bit of grind can be a good thing in its own right, but the thing is that speaking personally […]

Choose My Adventure: The slow setup for adventure in Star Wars Galaxies Legends

This week's Choose My Adventure probably had more preliminary preparation than any other game I've had. Most of the time I tend to fly by the seat of my pants to varying levels of success (read: failure), but it was impressed upon me early on that my time in Star Wars Galaxies Legends would be […]
