  • FiringSquad Previews The Burning Crusade

    FiringSquad.com has posted a preview of the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion, The Burning Crusade.

    The Blood Elves are the new Horde race, Blizzard’s answer to the calls for attractive models and Paladins for the Horde. Continuing the story from WarCraft III, the Blood Elves have split from the Alliance by making common cause with Illidan. Their lands and Silvermoon, their city, lay in ruins. The passage of the Scourge has quite literally left a mark on what were once the beautiful lands of the elves.

  • First Impressions of Gods and Heroes

    The Armchair Empire has posted their preview of Gods and Heroes: Rome Rising.

    When not seeing the sites throughout the Empire, players will have plenty of time for combat. This will take place in a more action-oriented fashion on par with what one could expect to find in the Diablo series, and considering that the mastermind behind Rome Rising is Stieg Hedlund, who was also head honcho on Diablo II, this probably shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. The process, however, is meant to be a lot more strategic with players having to aim and time their attacks while fighting, and not simply flailing away.

  • Burning Crusades Hands-On Preview

    ProG has joined the host of sites getting a chance to preview the upcoming expansion for World of Warcraft. Nightfall has been a hot topic of late. Keep reading to see what their impressions are.

    It's probably the most anticipated expansion in videogame history.

    The problem for WoW fanboys like me who have been dipping their virtual toes (or, if you're a Tauren, hoofs) into the beta for the last couple of weeks is that there's absolutely masses of new stuff to wade through, and it's almost impossible to be objective about it.

    Read the rest of the preview and then share your thoughts with us in the Ten Ton Hammer Forums. You can find out more about WoW and the Burning Crusades at our WoW Ten Ton Hammer Community site.

  • Make yourself a date with the night

    Games Radar has posted their impressions of the upcoming Guild Wars Expansion, Nightfall.

    As you may remember, the original plan for the massively multiplayer role-player Guild Wars was that rather than charging a subscription fee, they'd release full-priced expansions every six months for people who wanted further adventures. When Guild Wars Factions took a full year to appear, that plan was presumed to be abandoned. With Nightfall arriving almost six months to the day later, it seemingly hasn't.

  • Mythic's Paul Barnett offers a glimpse into the embattled world of the Empire.

    GameSpy had a chance to talk to Paul Barnett and get a preview of the Empire, one of the factions in the upcoming Warhammer Online.

    It would be difficult to find someone who will speak on the topic of Warhammer with more impassioned fervor than Mythic's Paul Barnett. The man seems to channel the spirits of the orcs, dwarves, and Chaos Marauders that populate the brutal world that he's helping to bring to life. As such, we could not think of anyone better to talk with us about the latest in-game faction for Warhammer: Age of Reckoning that Mythic has decided to unveil: the Empire. As you'd expect from the Warhammer universe, this human nation, to paraphrase Mr. Barnett, is teetering on the edge of annihilation at the hands of a multitude of assailants, not the least of which is humanity's own tendency to take the violent measures necessary for survival to wild extremes.

  • A Look at Stargate Worlds

    GamersInfo has taken the time to post a preview of Stargate Worlds. Keep reading to see if they think that this will be a hit or a flop.

    While Stargate has historically been a squad-based experienced, there have been instances where individuals were necessary to complete missions. Knowing this and keeping the solo-player in mind, they’re hoping to strike a balance. Though, as it is a multi-player game, they will provide rewards for “regular squad” play – the Stargate version of a guild.

  • Into the Fog of Ringfell

    RPG Vault has another in their series of peeks at Chronicles of Spellborn. This one includes five new screenshots that shouldn't be missed.

    In this series of articles, we are taking an in-depth look at the world of The Chronicles of Spellborn. Players are part of a civilization struggling for survival after the destruction of their world. What is left are the hollow rock-realms known as shards, floating in the magical Deadspell Storm. Each of these shards offers a unique set of themed environments, dungeons and creatures. In this fifth and final episode, we explore the areas that lie deeper within the shard, hidden beneath a thick fog.

  • Sprawl's Scrawl - First Impressions of Closed Beta

    WoW Vault has posted a preview of WoW's upcoming expansion, The Burning Crusade. This preview is full of impressions from closed beta, so don't miss out!

    One of the first things you notice upon logging into Burning Crusade beta is a number of quick popup boxes that indict that the system is scanning for viruses and the like. It's good to see that Blizzard is taking active steps at keeping a blacklist of known exploits. Once again the new player is presented with a view of the Dark Portal, this time from the Outland side. At this point, if you haven't upgraded your account with a key, do not expect to login.
