Beat the heat and stay inside to play with your dragon. In this case, the dragon is in beta form, so be a little forgiving.


For the uninitiated, Guild Wars 2 is an MMORPG that will be a free-to-play (after purchasing a copy of the game) and looks to be an exciting new choice for many disenfranchised MMO gamers.


The violent, sexualized MMO switches to the free-to-play model. Will it help Conan and the Hyborian’s stay alive?

Instead of trying to revamp the game, change the subscription to a free-to-play model, or simply let it be, they want to end it.

While it doesn’t even take a former EA employee who worked on WAR to tell you that the game had some problems, it still deserved a little more time.

Panasonic has announced its portable platform: the Jungle, signaling the return of Panasonic to the gaming market since the much loved and much despised 3DO. Looking like a cross between a Nintendo DS and a netbook, the Jungle will have a full QWERTY keyboard and twin touch pads for control with.

Not willing to take on the DS or PSP battle just yet, Panasonic is promoting the Jungle as a machine for MMO players with their first title being a Battlestar Galactica MMO.
