Nothing says "I love you" like spending time together in MMOs

Posted by: Chad at 2/9/2010 3:04 PM
That's what Mythic Entertainment wants you to believe.  Most MMOs go "Koo-Koo for Cocoa Puffs" when a holiday approaches and Valentine's Day will be no different.  Special live events and activities will be happening during these dates:

Warhammer Online (February 9th -16th)
Dark Age of Camelot (February 8th - 21st)
Ultima Online (February 14th)

With all of the special happenings, I'm giving you authorization to skip getting a present for your special someone.  Who needs flowers, chocolates, and gift cards when you can have quality time in digital form?
