  • A Look At The CCP / White Wolf Merger

    MMORPG.com has posted an editorial that looks at this merger in a regular column titled MMOWTF.

    How could I pass up an opportunity like this? While mergers are becoming more and more common as we spiral toward Cyberpunk, the most recent amalgamation between Crowd Control Productions (CCP, creators of EVE Online) and White Wolf Publishing (the second largest pen and paper RPG maker) made me stop and think. What other companies who might want a slice of a related industry would be looking to join forces with (or swallow whole) another company with a strong history and tools in the field? This week in MMOWTF I'm going to dig up some details behind this deal and speculate on the next big corporate fusion.

  • Blizzard Heading To Court?

    Markee Dragon has a post on their site that talks about a brewing battle between WoW Glider and Blizzard.

    We knew it had to happen one of these days with a bot program. Bots currently exist for most all Massive Multiplayer games. The biggest MMORPG in North America is World of Warcraft. WoW Glider is a 3rd party application that allows you to control your character in game without having to be present at your computer. It allows you to have your character go out and gain skills hunting monsters and it allows you to loot them. WoW Glider will pick up the items in game and put them in your pack. WoW Glider was launched June 5th 2005. Since that time it has become hugely popular with players of the game.

  • Exploring Middle-earth: Crickhollow

    The official site for Lord of the Rings Online has been updated with another in the Exploring Middle-earth series. This time we get a look at Crickhollow...

    In Buckland, not far to the north of Brandy Hall in the hills rising away from the path of the Brandywine, travelers will come upon Crickhollow, an often-visited retreat for those Hobbits who wish to spend a few days away from their daily routine, or simply rest and eat more peacefully than they are used to resting and eating at home. Those who live near Crickhollow are pleasant enough folk, though generally they like to be left alone to their peace and quiet.

  • Grant "Rogue_5" McDaniel Comlinks Spy and Medic

    The official forums for Star Wars Galaxies has been updated with two new comlinks from SOE Producer for Star Wars Galaxies, Grant McDaniel. You can read up on the spy and medic to learn more about them.

    There is also news from the Test Center in the form of Chapter 4 highlights:

    GCW:

    * Factions: When leaving the Imperial or Rebel factions, you must now wait 5 days before joining the opposing side. You can still rejoin the side you left without waiting for the timer to expire.
    * GCW: Crackdown scans will no longer be confused about your proper GCW rank.
    * Space: Pilot trainers will check for the proper GCW faction (instead of positive faction standing), before signing a player to a pilot profession.
