Elder Scrolls Online: The Next Great Fantasy MMO?

- There are few intellectual properties left in the world quite as
appropriate for creation into a massively multiplayer online game as
the Elder Scrolls series. When ZeniMax Online Studios was announced
back in 2007, there were a number of press outlets that began guessing
about the future of the studio and which IP the studio would be
pursuing. Now with a Fallout MMO being firmly talked about by
Interplay, Ten Ton Hammer's Cody "Micajah" Bye turns his eye towards an
Elder Scrolls-based MMO and what such a game would look like.

Rasa: A Chronicle of the Rise and Fall

- The love and hate of current and former Tabula Rasa players could
write an entire book about its rollercoaster ride from fame to finish.
While it might be easier to diagnose what killed this science fiction
MMO game, we have decided to go a different route. Our tribute to
Tabula Rasa highlights every important event and milestone from the few
months before launch to the announcement of its last days. Take a look
inside for the complete history of Tabula Rasa.

Aion Flight and Archetype Interview

- Over the past few years, the Ten Ton Hammer team has been eagerly
scooping up every piece of href=""
target="_blank"> style="font-style: italic;">Aion: The Tower of
development news that we could get our hands on. There hasn’t
been much officially released for the US public, but we’ve
done our best to give you the scoop on this epic game. But since the
grand public unveiling of style="font-style: italic;">Aion
to North American audiences at 2008’s Penny Arcade Expo, the
US developers for NCsoft’s upcoming high fantasy MMO have
gone relatively quiet. Thankfully, the Ten Ton Hammer staff was able to
nab a few answers to some nagging style="font-style: italic;">Aion
questions, and if you’re eagerly awaiting this beautiful MMO,
make sure you check out this interview!
