  2. Star Wars: The Old Republic Is Going Free-To-Play Next Week

    We knew it was coming, but now we know when. BioWare's attempt at a Star Wars MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic, will be going free-to-play starting next week, Thursday, November 15. The game released on December 20 of last year, and a little less than one year later, is making the move to a free-to-play model, like most of the rest of the MMO market. Makes you wonder why any MMO developers think their game can launch without a free-t0-play option nowadays.

  7. What It’s Like to Quaff Too Many Heals [Video]

    If you've ever played a JRPG, you might've noticed that your characters have stomachs that work similarly to the Doctor's TARDIS -- bigger on the inside. With their usual inventory with infinite space, it's not entirely odd --relative to the game's universe -- that they'd be able to shove 99 heal potions down their gullet, but the always-impressive team at Corridor Digital are here to show us what would happen if you quaffed all those heals and buffs in real life.
