  • Bawk, bawk, baaaaawk!

    Curious how the much talked-about "chicken play" is going to work in LoTRO? G4 gives you a little video and lets you see (you also get to see some troll and ranger play).

  • Which Comes First, the Chicken or the Game?

    Ever think, "Man, my MMO gaming experience would be complete if only I could just play a chicken!"? Yeah, me either. But who can withstand the coolness of an attack named Threatening Cluck? Chicken play is among the many new features coming in the next free update of Lord of the Rings Online. Shayalyn serves up this preview direct from E3:

  • Confessions of a MMO Noob

    GameShark.com starts the week with a look at Lord of the Rings Online. Keep reading to see what their thoughts are.

    The good news is that whether you have any idea of what an “instance” is or not, ultimately, none of that matters. For the uninitiated, LotRO holds your hand through what you absolutely have to know to get by and leaves the rest up to you.

  • The Lord of the Rings Online: Hands-On

    IGN.com has updated their site with a hands on look at the upcoming Lord of the Rings Online. This preview looks at the Champion and Burgler classes.

    We've spent a number of hours running around the lands of Eriador, from the huts and inns of Bree-town to the pipe-weed fields of the Shire, testing out the races of Men, and Hobbits, as well as Burglar and Champion classes. The game has so far proven remarkably easy to get into and understand, which could be attributed to much of its user interface being lifted from Blizzard's World of Warcraft.

  • My First Steps in Middle Earth - A LotRO Hands-On Preview Part Two

    For this hands-on preview of LotRO, Cody "Micajah" Bye decided to jump into more of a storyteller role and give you his very first impressions as he took his initial few steps in Middle Earth. If you're looking for details on monster-play or the founder's system, look elsewhere. In Part Two of the preview, Micajah explore the world outside of the tutorial instance and falls in love with the landscape of LotRO.

    Some of this "flow" comes from the design of the town itself. The art design team that developed Archet did an absolutely fabulous job. Your eyes never get tired of soaking the town in, as you walk from place to place. Unlike some towns you might find in WoW or EQ2, Archet was lively and colorful – with lots of things to see and do.
