  • The impossible interview...

    Coyote wows us with another of his amazing blooper reals. The most frightening thing is, from my understanding we haven't even seen the "good stuff."

    “Impossible interviews are a reporter’s worst nightmare. Your subject is hostile, belligerent, or in the worst scenario, refuses to do the interview that they had previously agreed to,” He explains as he nods towards the screen.

    Read this this compliation of hilarious interviews at EQ2 - TenTonHammer and prepare yourself for take off! I mean laughter.

  • EQ2 TenTonHammer Sits Down with Larry Elmore...

    Larry Elmore! If you don't know what Dragonlance is or you've never seen EverQuest cover art, you're going to be clueless. Fear not! We'll explain. Coyote, from our EQ2 - TenTonHammer team, interviews this legendary artist and manages to complete sentences despite being in total awe of him!

    I've met a number of “celebrities” or “famous” individuals in my life, and around everyone of them I was proud at my composure and nonchalant manner. With a practiced apathy and casual demeanor, I was the epitome of cool. However, when I met Larry Elmore at the SOE Fan Faire, I have to admit that I was more than a bit “star struck”.

  • Congregating with cocktails...

    Slide, at EQ2 - TenTonHammer, took a totally different tack on our weekly debate topic (this week we're looking at what makes an MMO "massively multiplayer" - and whether that's a bit of a misnomer since, for the most part, players do their own thing). He took the opportunity to talk about alcohol and real-life drinking by MMO players, and whether drinking changes the solo/group dynamics. At first, the editors were skeptical, but by their third or fourth drink, Slide's article started making a lot of sense (*hic*).

    Many, many people mix alcohol with EverQuest 2 daily. Studying this article should better prepare you for what to expect and what to look for. There are pros and cons to drinking while in-game. Yep, I said there were pros. Take a walk with me if you dare discover what lies beneath the sober shroud of responsibility and good behavior.

    Boozin', buffin', and bashin', sounds like a busy evening for Slide and the gang at EQ2 - TenTonHammer!

  • Why would an antisociable soloer solo in EverQuest 2?

    Step inside the head (yes, we're providing protective clothing) of Coyote Sharptongue, a self-confessed compulsive soloer soloing for a reason to solo besides being antisocial.

    I get asked this constantly from friends both in and out of the game when I explain to them that most of the time I'd rather be off exploring new locales or fighting newly found monsters on my own, rather than in a group. Sometimes the persistent grouper will try and hunt me down and add me to his list of conquests before running off into the night to brag to his friends and not call me the next day. Drive by group offers are the worst. Luckily, I have a bevy of excuses in my arsenal, and I'm ready to lob them grenade-like at any who would attempt to delve too deeply into my playing habits.

    Find out why Coyote hates people (just kidding) at EQ2 - TenTonHammer.

  • What really happened at SOE Fan Faire, part 2:

    RadarX returns from the 2006 SOE Fan Faire with many a story to tell. His official report contains all the gameplay stuff, but what really happens in between the official events? Perhaps you've been entertained by part one of Radar's blog and Coyote's version of events, now join our favorite templar for What Really Happens at SOE Fan Faire, part 2:

    The butt crack of dawn, and I'm awoken by
    stirring. Apparently SOME people can't sleep with any light in the room,
    so no big deal, I'll just get up. I take a step, but am frozen in place,
    and unable to move. I realize that Coyote has adjusted the room
    temperature to his native environment of Antarctica. Moving my way past
    the penguins, I throw the polar bears out of my bathtub, and yell to
    Coyote he better have pants on when I get back.

    Read Part 2 at EQ2 - TenTonHammer for Radar's hilarious version of how things wrapped up at SOE's FanFaire in Atlanta last week, and be sure to check out the rest of our 2006 FanFaire coverage.
