Play games and help kids? That's basically the definition of win-win. My trusty old Webster dictionary even says so. Well, okay, maaaybe I wrote it in the margin, but seriously, fundraising doesn't get much better than this.

Though the weather may indicate otherwise, we’re thick in the middle of fall. Fall: that mystical time of year famous for pumpkin-spiced food, horror flicks, and MMO content patches and expansions. For this issue of MMO Co-Opportunities, we’ll be looking at content expansions that either just launched on their corresponding live servers...

The way Xbox Game Pass works is that for a monthly subscription fee ($9.99) you are free to download/play any of the titles available via the program. If you let your subscription expire, you will no longer be able to play the games (unless you already own them, that is) until you renew your subscription. You find out more on the official site, which also includes a list of all title available (there's also this hand searchable list on Eurogamer).

Tally is, without a doubt, our resident expert when it comes to all things Guild Wars 2, and there are a lot of things she's liking here. The mounts allow for a greater movement and a chance to explore older areas with eases, and the elite specializations offer a greater variety of options for all classes. Mike has been away from the game for a while, but he, too, is digging all the new stuff. You can hear more of their thoughts in the video below.

It's a rather interesting take on the iconic game. Up to four players must work together in order to complete a given scenario; if even one player dies, everyone loses. The scenarios themselves provide the players with a specific objective that they must complete in order to win, a diagram for how you setup/construct the game board from a selection of board pieces, and info on the various enemies that will be dropped in and items that can be discovered. To help create some of that feeling of unease and scares you'd encounter while playing the game, Steamforged utilizes something they call the "Tension Deck." At the end of every player's turn, they draw a card from this deck, which might cause some bad things to happen. It sounds, in practice, like the mechanic from Pandemic where players draw cards from a deck at the end of each turn and hope they don't draw an "Epidemic" card.
