  • Beta Silliness

    The official site for Pirates of the Burning Sea has a note pointing us to a new entry in Misha's Developers Log. In this entry you'll get a glimpse of some of the silly things that have happened in beta.

    Besides being terrific at finding and reporting bugs and giving general feedback about the pros and cons of the current state of the game, our Beta testers keep us in good humor through all the stress of trying to get this game out the door. Here are a couple samples. Warning: Do not read further while drinking near your keyboard. ;)

  • Creatures of Middle-earth: Lynx, Wolf, and Barghest

    The official site for Lord of the Rings Online has been updated with the next in the series of Creatures of Middle-earth. This article covers the lynx, wolf and barghest.

    In the crags of Nan Amlug, lynx dwell in great numbers. While these mountain cats are mere beasts, with no care for the wars of Men and Orcs, they can still be extremely dangerous. They are able to move about nearly unseen, silently creeping towards their prey, springing upon the unwary with vicious precision. The miners of Othrikar, the dwarf-mines of Nan Amlug, must keep a constant vigil as they journey to and from their tunnels.

  • Wintersday Concludes, And the Winner is...

    The official site for Guild Wars has posted the 29th issue of The Scribe.

    The Wintersday challenge has concluded. And yet, as many have noticed, warm weather has not returned. Though the lands in Tyria and Elona haven't yet thawed, those loyal to Dwayna assure me that soon only the mighty Shiverpeak Mountains will be covered in Grenth's white blanket.

    The Avatar of Grenth has expressed his satisfaction with the performance of Grenth's supporters during the divine challenge, assuring those loyal to Grenth that they have successfully forestalled the thaw for as long as can be expected. He did, however, grumble that his deity is slightly annoyed at the inevitable return of the warm weather; it seems no amount of support can prevent spring's thaw completely.

    The rest is just a click away.

  • PvP Primer: Fort Aspenwood Cross-Training

    The official site for Guild Wars has another in their series of PvP Primers up today.

    Starting Out

    A Factions PvP arena, Fort Aspenwood offers new players an excellent chance to break into competitive play. The Fort Aspenwood environment forgives mistakes much more readily than other arenas, and it has the same party forming mechanic as Random Arenas. When you enter battle at Fort Aspenwood, you don't have to find a group—the game automatically groups you with a team.

  • Did You Resolve To Change Careers This Year?

    According to The Camelot Herald, EA is looking for some new ground floor employees. Could this be your chance to get your foot in the door?

    Promotion can be very fast at the rate this company is growing, and we really need solid, hardworking people with a creative streak and a sense of humor. Please go to this link (http://jobs.ea.com/pljb/ElectronicArts/United_States/applicant/index.jsp), choose "Fairfax, VA" and then "Customer Supp Rep I" for the chance to get in on the ground floor, and if you've got the chops, to move to world building, storytelling, or even design. I can't seem to convince the EA Jobs site to let me link directly to the gig in question, so treat this as your first test.

    Good luck!
