YouTuber explores abandoned virtual world, ends up inside a creepy nightmare

Massively multiplayer online games (MMOs) are some of the most fascinating games in the industry. Unlike other games, MMOs allow hundreds or even thousands of players to explore a virtual world simultaneously, taking on the forces of evil and competing in server-wide warfare.

But the only thing more fascinating than a living, breathing MMO is one that has been abandoned for over a decade, as is the case with Active Worlds.

Nintendo Wii U Production Ending

With Wii U’s fate in question, Nintendo’s NX might be its last chance

With Wii U’s fate in question, Nintendo’s NX might be its last chance

By on March 23, 2016 at 1:03 PM.

After spending three-and-a-half years languishing at the bottom of the market, the Wii U is finally being put to rest. That’s according to a report published by Japan’s Nikkei on Tuesday, which claims that Nintendo will cease production of the ill-fated console before the end of 2016, perhaps in preparation for the rumored NX console.
