I had an issue with Star Trek Online and Atari’s “Customer Service” really impressed me.
Eric (who you may know as @BlamefulGecko) dragged me out of my self-imposed MMO exile and into Champions Online.
Regular readers may have noticed a distinct lack of posts about Fallen Earth and Champions Online recently. I just wanted to very briefly explain that I’m not posting because I’m not playing, but the reason I’m not playing has nothing to do with interest level in the games. I have [...]
Someone on Twitter was asking me how Cryptic handles all the skills with a gamepad. See the X, Y & B indicators on the first 3 skills? Those are the ‘unmodified’ bindings. If you hold down a modifier like one of the triggers, those little indicators move to show which [...]

I have to correct two errors tonight. The first one is mine. I said you could unlearn all your skills and powers at any point. Apparently that is not correct; I just never got high enough to where I had more than you’re able to unlearn. So sadly, at some [...]
Someone on my forums asked about targeting in Champions Online — how it worked. As strange a question as it seems, the answer is somewhat interesting (I think, anyway). So how to target a mob? Well you can click on it, of course. Or hit whatever key you have bound [...]
