Facebook games are notorious for two things and two things only – filling your wall with pleas from your friends to help build a barn or shoot a mafia traitor or, well, whatever the task of the day is; and stealing peoples' souls, leaving them a zombified, mouse-clicking corpse.

City of Wonder is Wonderfully Urban The game presents itself as a hybrid between Sid Meyer's Civilization and the Caesar series – think Sim City but with armies and technology. You increase your city's population by clicking on a house when...

What is MMORPG, the online roleplaying games

Gaming
Due to the nature of an MMORPG, an internet connection is an obvious necessity to play. As the acronym suggests, these games were created to be played by thousands of players, at the same time, on the same server. That means that at any given time a player has the chance to interact with any number of thousands of different players. MMORPG Servers MMORPG server sizes ranges from a few hundred players, to over 60,000 players logged in and playing at the same time. In fact, the MMORPG Eve Online, because it only has one server, broke the 60,000 player mark in June of 2010. Eve Online is the only mainstream MMO to use this single server architecture; other games, such as the immensely successful World of Warcraft, spread players over a large number of servers. The Massive Appeal ...

Rise and fall of WCW (1996-2001)

Gaming
To document why WCW turned it's fortunes around in such a dramatic way in the late nineties one cannot ignore the re-packaging of one of the most traditional of wrestling good guys, Sting. The Birth Of The Icon, Sting Throughout that fairly dull early 1990s period of WCW Sting had been a bleach blond babyface who, although a credible performer, somewhat embodied the blandness at the time. As WCW became diseased with NWO poison, Sting sloped into the shadows and became a recluse.
