Wildstar doesn’t set out to reinvent the wheel; nor should it. Other games have tried and have not been successful.

A Personal MMO Retrospective.

Part 1 of…. I dunno?

My history with Massively Multiplayer Online games is torrid and vast. It involves thousands of hours lived richly in another world, or wasted in endless doldrums.
