A Melding of Genres – A First Look at Red 5's Firefall at PAX 2010http://www.tentonhammer.com/firefall/previews/pax2010
We’ve known that Red 5 Studios has been hard at work creating a new title for the online space for quite some time now. We’ve also known that the developer boasts some top notch talent including Mark Kern, team lead on World of Warcraft, and Scott Youngblood, former lead designer of Tribes. But what we didn’t know is just what kind of title such a talented team had aims at producing.
All of that changed, however, when Red 5 hit the show floor at PAX Prime to officially unveil Firefall, a team-based action shooter due out in Q4 of 2011. Ten Ton Hammer had the opportunity to see the game in action and speak with the legendary Mark Kern at the event, and has the full details on whether or not Firefall will be the game everyone is talking about next fall.
Half Elves, Time Travel, and a Demonic Vultron? - A PAX 2010 Video Preview of DDO Update 7http://www.tentonhammer.com/ddo/videos/update7-preview
DDO Executive Producer Fernando Paiz takes us on a whirlwind journey through the October expansion to the award-winning free-to-play game. First, half is more as Fernando reveals the new race coming to DDO - half elves! - and we'll see a half orc, the other race revealed at PAX East, in action in the game.
Then it's time for a journey through the chronoscope to one of the more nightmarish moments in Stormreach's past to discover the strange fate of one of Stormreach's fan-favorite NPCs, entertainer Nat Gann. And did we mention a certain abishai-ish throwback tribute to a beloved 80s cartoon? It's all in our DDO Update 7 video preview from PAX 2010!
