About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Funcom is at the same time also extending the included tryout period for Anarchy Online from 7 to 14 days, giving newcomers a chance to evaluate the unique depth and entire range of qualities in the ultimate sci-fi MMORPG.

"Anarchy Online has established itself as one of the finest MMORPGs on the market, and with this initiative we believe that even more players will try our game," said Funcom's President/ CEO Trond Arne Aas.
