State of the Game: Can Star Citizen Live Up to Expectations?

Earlier this month, it was announced that Chris Roberts' Star Citizen had broken a Guinness World Record for the top crowdfunding project of all time with $55 million being raised to help develop the game. While $55 million is far from the biggest game budget of all time, it's still an impressive amount of money to be raised by little more than word-of-mouth and a Kickstarter campaign.

Review in Progress #4 – A Hard Lesson in Safe Trade

As you might recall last week, I obtained my first real seafaring ship: the clipper. One of ArcheAge's biggest selling points, at least in my eyes, is the crafting and trade game.

This past week, I learned the difference between the two the hard way.
