A few weeks ago, Daybreak Games announced H1Z1 being split into two games, H1Z1: Just Survive and H1Z1: King of the Hill. Is splitting your games in two about to become a trend now?

This is exciting! Wildstar's Free-to-play closed beta has officially started and since I am currently subscribed to the game, I get to participate. Now, excuse me while I'm still wearing my rose-coloured glasses when it comes to Wildstar.

When bookahnerk first let me play WoW on his account, I was immediately hooked. Poor guy had wanted to nap a bit but couldn't because I kept bothering him with questions. My laptop hadn't been too good, so I'd gotten lost in that "efil cave-area" in the Tauren starter area. Who knew it was actually … Continue reading How many chances do you give a game?

There is a newer version of this article which you can find here. (Updated: January 17, 2012) What do we know about the game so far? I'm trying to keep it as short as possible.
