  • Boomtown Brings Us an Hands-On Preview of Nightfall

    Boomtown has posted their latest look at the upcoming Guild Wars expansion. They had a chance to play Nightfall. Keep reading to find out what they thought...

    So here we are again, logging on for God knows which time, this time preparing to get into the next chapter of the saga, Nightfall. The title screen now has a sort of African-Arabian from-the-desert-to-the-seas thing going, and as usual, Jeremy Soule's music fits the mood. It feels like I'm about to date an old flame again, and she's changed ever so subtly, but somehow significantly. The thing is, though, that she's still the same, my Guild Wars. She may now have even more to do, this time focusing on single-player content rather than the multiplayer-fest that is Factions, she may have two new classes, the Dervish and the Paragon, lots of new items, quests, et cetera up her sleeve, but really, folks, she is the same.

  • What is Outlands like? What are the two new race areas like? How is the new loot?

    Voodoo Extreame has a preview to answer all of these questions.

    The Burning Crusade closed beta is finally out, and after much gnashing of teeth, I have stopped playing long enough to be able to write up some "hands on" impressions of the game. I do not want to bore you all with the details of every little minute detail of what has gone into The Burning Crusade expansion pack, and the truth is, a lot of things have been beat to death in other previews.

  • World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Updated Hands-On - The Two New Races

    GameSpot has taken the time to look at the blood elf and draenei characters that will appear in the upcoming expansion The Burning Crusade.

    Thousands of players from around the globe log into the game daily, and nightly (and daily, and nightly, and daily, and nightly) to play as a wizard, warrior, or thief in the colorful Warcraft fantasy universe. And (hopefully) later this year, the studio will release The Burning Crusade, the expansion pack for the game which will add plenty of high-level content for veterans as well as two new playable fantasy races to build new characters with. We took the opportunity to get in-depth with the two new races, the fanatical blood elves of the monstrous Horde faction and the mystical draenei characters of the noble Alliance.

  • What's In Store When You Start ArchLord?

    This is what Whizzedout tries to answer. They have posted a detailed look at ArchLord.

    You start of with creating your avatar, which I must say is very limited and you only have a handful of races and classes to pick from. Whats worse is the fact you cant select which gender you are, I fancied playing a Ranger but was only allowed to play as a female, now im one of those persons that likes to think every female characther you come across in the game is a real female in real life, not some 40 year old fat bloke.

  • Gamespy's Delsyn goes hands-on with DDO's Module 3, where he learns to hate sand, jackal-men and women with six arms.

    Gampspy has posted a preview of the upcoming Module 3 for Dungeons and Dragons Online. Keep reading to see what they have to say...

    Turbine is walking a pretty fine line these days. Its high profile MMO, Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach, has gotten great praise for its fidelity to the paper-and-pencil experience but equally harsh criticism for the absence of many of the most common features of MMOs, such as broad, open areas and PvP combat. It's to Turbine's credit that the DDO development team is attempting to address these criticisms, adding in more "MMO-style features" without compromising the vision of an authentic online D&D game. I recently had the opportunity to visit Turbine's Cambridge, Massachusetts, studio to go hands-on with some of the upcoming content from Module 3: The Demon Sands and see how it's coming along.

  • Guild Wars Nightfall Updated Impressions - Heroes, Quests, and Setting

    GameSpot posted some updated impressions for the upcoming expansion to Guild Wars. They had a chance to speak with ArenaNet co-founder Jeff Strain about Nightfall.

    The appeal of online games is that they let you have your adventures alongside other players from around the globe. And one of the hallmarks of ArenaNet's online role-playing game Guild Wars is that it has evolved over time, adding new features and gameplay ever since its launch last year. Thanks to excellent gameplay and the fact that there's no subscription fee required to play, Guild Wars has established itself as a hit. ArenaNet claims more than 2 million copies of the game sold to date, and with the release of further chapters, we can expect that number to grow.

  • Age of Conan Updated Impressions: More Than Just Swordplay At GameSpot

    Gamespot has posted a preview of the upcoming Age of Conan. This preview takes a look at the roles of commander and lord.

    BARCELONA--Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures is more than a simply massively multiplayer online hack and slash-fest. Oh, make no mistake, the game based on Robert E. Howard's classic tales of the boozing, brawling, babe-loving barbarian king will offer you plenty of opportunities to get to the wetworks with your favorite edged weapon on all sorts of enemies. It just isn't all there is to do in this multifaceted game, as we discovered on the floor of X06 today.

  • A Look at Dwarves

    RPG Vault has the next peek at the upcoming Darkfall. This peek gives us a look at Dwarves. Included in the write up are also three new screenshots.

    The Dwarves of Dvergheim

    Like axe-bristling avalanches, dwarven legions surge across Agon's battlefields, neither wavering nor resting until victory is secured. At any stage in any battle, no matter how ridiculous the odds may be, dwarves believe - with unblinking certainty - that they will prevail through superior skill, rock-hewn strength and indomitable bravery.
