  • Guardian Class Beta Journal

    The official site for Lord of the Rings Online has been updated today with another in the weekly series of weekly player beta journals.

    I wasn't sure how this game was going to turn out, but after playing as a Guardian, I have come to realize that, yes, this game is great fun when played mainly solo, but, unlike many other MMO's I've played, the classes develop so many more uses when played as a part of a group.

  • The Festival Jester Arrives!

    The official site for Dungeons and Dragons Online has been updated with news on this holiday festival...

    Festival is a new holiday commissioned by the Coin Lords of Stormreach. Since ancient times, the folk of Eberron have observed Long Shadows during these chill weeks -- a grim season when the power of the Shadow, god of the Dark Six, is at its strongest. Dire magic gathers in dusky corners, and evil stalks the night in a thousand guises. The Coin Lords have determined that the terror of Long Shadows must end! To this end, they devised Festival, a celebration to drive evil out of the city. Instead of cowering from the Shadow, citizens are encouraged to exchange gifts with their adventuring partners and loved ones. And by slaying the monsters who threaten the city's well-being, they may collect Festival Coins to demonstrate their dauntless spirit in the face of Long Shadows and the Dark Six!

  • Nightfall Wins Game of the Year Award

    Gamespy has posted their end of year awards. Guild Wars latest expansion Nightfall, gets Game of the Year honors.

    This year found the Guild Wars expansion-machine in full swing, with two standalone campaigns released six months apart: Factions and Nightfall. While we were very much into Factions, Nightfall edged it out in our minds. Its North African-inspired setting was extremely cool, and the two new professions introduced -- the vicious Dervish and the stalwart Paragon -- were just too cool for words.

Each person's opinion is his or her own and will (probably) not necessarily agree with their fellow colleagues'.
