Personal Stores… I Hate You!

Although I did rather like the idea to start with, yet this Author is resending his approval of NCSofts addition to Aion’s Character Personal Stores.  Here’s why: Now, I’m sure I am being unreasonable.  Now that Aion is live, I wonder how much more difficult this is going to be.  I have walked...

NCSoft Server Poll on SurveyMonkey

NCsoft has put up an official worldselect poll up on SurveyMonkey for Aion.

Gameguard – To Protect or to Spy?

One of the most controversial topics around Aion revolves around the GameGuard software. I stumbled upon this topic today for the first time but it appears to be a serious concern for some players.
