Gaming Massively

Oh boy! AT-ATs!

I enjoyed Star Wars Galaxies, back before the Change, and have often thought it was the best MMO made, in terms of appealing to a wide audience of casual gamers. Of course, it changed, and I haven't looked at it in ... five years? But that doesn't mean I don't get a little thrill seeing the roll out of content set on Hoth (from The Empire Strikes Back). So the pictures at Ten Ton Hammer of AT-ATs and such made me happy.

games do not require combat

It terrifies me they feel the need to ask the question - Massively wonders aloud to its readers 'would you ever play a noncombatant?'. My wife used to have a dancer in SWG, back before it broke. She didn't own a weapon, never went on any combat missions, and loved it. She's been trying to get back to that game ever since, I think. And it's a damned shame noone seems able to accommodate. There's a reason they put 'rpg' on the end of 'mmo'.
