sci-fi genre in MMOs is on the verge of some major expansion, with
a long list of promising titles set to release later this year. This
summer also marks the 8th anniversary of the genre’s first

Ten Ton Hammer’s href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/features/final-frontier"

bonds glued game communities together to a degree rarely seen in
today’s “massively solo-friendly” market.
