Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, which launched in 2008, is no more. The EA Mythic-developed MMO closed its doors overnight, forever ending its ambitions of true realm-vs-realm warfare and other delightful concepts imported from former project Dark Age of Camelot but sadly wasted on a generation whose brains pointed due WoW. The dream has died; go to your rest, uncrowned king. Or, you know, hang around as your ridiculously interesting indie spiritual successor, whatever.
Thanks, Strategy Informer.

EVE Online players can now use Twitch to stream their gameplay sessions. The streaming service has been integrated into the Neocom panel and proper overlay support and the ability to delay the stream is being looking into, providing the initial launch proves popular. Meanwhile, the EVE Online community has raised $190,890 in PLEX donations for Philippines typhoon relief, after an eight hour livecast featuring members of the EVE development doing odd things such as shaving each other and getting inked. One of CCP’s developers even promised to be shot by a paintball for every $2,000 raised. Ouch. Hit up the links for more information. Thanks: D’toidand Eurogamer.

Blizzard has added an in-game store to the World of Warcraft client, meaning you no longer need to alt-tab out to the web-based store when you espy a mount or pet you simply cannot live without. The developer is now expected to begin implementing other up-to-the-minute next-gen features like metal tools instead of those clumsy old stone things, and planting fields rather than just wandering around hoping enough food grows in the wild. Pets and mounts are currently on sale, by the way.
