  • Gaming Steve's Got What You Need!
    Experimenting with podcasts today is Gaming
    Steve.
    He got a chance to sit down with a few fellas from Auto
    Assault
    .

    In this special Gaming Steve episode I sit down with Scott Brown
    and Ryan Seabury from NetDevil, the makers of the upcoming Auto Assault. In
    the interview we cover the game's setting, the three player races, the character
    creation process, new features in the public Beta, the crafting, the weapons,
    the cars, and the oh-so-much-fun mindless destruction. Enjoy!

  • Can you hear me grumbling in Colorado? Well you should, because I am! The Matrix Online topped my biggest disapointments list ever this year. It was cool in relation to avatars and clothes and junk.. BUT C'MON! If I wanted to play City of Heroes.. I'd be playing City of Heroes!

    I digress..There's a brand spankin new Designer Journal on Data Node One - The offical website.

    I’m pleased to say that the team has been making great progress. We’ve had a busy month working on game improvements including the SOE mail system and the first phase of the content revamp. And now, as we head into the last month of 2005, our hard work on the combat revision is paying off. The main focus of today’s journal is to explain the first part of the combat revision and I think you will love the changes.

    walks off grumbling and gesticulating wildly about how they should've just start the hell over

  • Here's the weekly bucket of goodness for all of you DAOC fans out there. Mythic has released Pat 1.81e.

    Darkness Falls access change is the big news this edition. There's also a cool new recall stone system for those who own the Darkness Rising expansion. We may reevaluate that limit in the months to come, but for now it's like the advanced horses - a great reason to get Darkness Rising. Come for the recall stones and horses, stay for the quests and cake.

    Mmmmmm Caaaake... Get the notes Right Here

  • Today, the official site is promoting a new Weapons Tool that gives information on all of the weapons in game.

    Need a bit more information on weapons?

    Thanks to the guys over at the ever popular RFO community site //RFO.Asterix// comes a great little tool to help you in your weapon selection. By clicking on a particular weapon, you can see what potential that weapon has with additional talics. There may be a slight problem for IE users which I believe is being looked at.

    Big thanks to SpongeX and Xanavi for their work on this and the rest of the database.

    You can find the tool Here on the new non-harsh looking RF Online Forums.

  • Let's hope you never run into the dreaded GamerGod during a dungeon crawl.
    GamerGod makes some good points about why Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach satisfies its DnD heritage and makes for a good MMORPG.

    I’ve played D&D for as long as I can remember, and I always wanted someone to make a good D&D game where I played one character in a party and went out adventuring. I always dreamt that one day there would be a totally interactive D&D world where my character could live and meet people, slay mighty dragons, and have people recognize who I was. I've been thinking a lot about what I know of this game, and the thing that I like most is how this MMO has set itself apart from the rest. Most of the elements in DDO are headed in different directions to other MMO's; it forces you to form parties, real time combat, no mounts, and no houses. It's a risky strategy, considering many people play MMO's to buy houses, ride horses, and farm gold and become an almighty ruler of the game - but I think it's a brilliant idea and a brilliant-looking game. For many people, this game will not live up to their hopes or expectations, and although I haven’t played the game yet I'm eagerly awaiting the release. What do I think? Is DDO worth all the hype? My answer is that my dream may no be longer a dream.

  • The Official Site has a Dragon Lair Walkthrough for all of the greedy, horde hungry Dragons out there.

    What Are You Waiting For?
    Double-click your plot entrance! You dragons who are friendly to bipeds might recognize the interface!

    Constructing a lair consists of these steps:

    Creating a plan
    Checking the planned layout
    Committing the planned structures to be built
    Busting your tail and your friends' tails while making and applying materials!

    Dragon Lairs just went in recently so it's a good idea to check this one out.

Do it by Thursday at 12:00 noon EST, and see your ancient enmity in print!

    Please note: Carefully proofread your email address – the reporter needs it to contact you if you’re chosen for publication.
