  • World Selection Made Easier

    The official site for Final Fantasy XI has been updated with news about a new ability to pick your own world.

    Starting March 8, 2007, players will be able to create new characters on the World of their choice. Up until now, Worlds would be randomly assigned to characters upon their creation, while only players with World Passes could join their friends. However, with this new adjustment, all players, even ones without World Passes, will have the option to select their realm at the character selection screen.

  • I feel so naked.
    According to a news link on Slashdot.org, Blizzard has erected a new web site called the Armor, which allows you to glean information about any WoW character in close to real-time. I think it's about time you stop lying to your guild about your skills.

    This exposes a great deal of information that was not previously obtainable including profession choices, skill levels for all skills, and the character's complete talent specification and all faction reputation data, along with all gear currently equipped. The complete roster of any guild or arena team is also available.

    For the whole bit, click here.

  • Developer Diary: Crafting the Mountains of Ered Luin

    The official site for Lord of the Rings Online has been updated with a new Dev Diary written by Dan Haard.

    When tasked with creating environment assets for Ered Luin, I first stepped back and looked at the overall ambiance the team wanted to achieve in this area. My goal as an environment artist is to create world assets that not only work consistently with each other, but unify to give the place a distinct visual meaning; a story that even the rocks will tell. In the case of the highlands of Ered Luin, we wanted to tell a story of a frozen wild; a place set apart, as the natural boundary it is, from the rest of Middle-earth.
