  • 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.

  • CVG joins Blizzard's senior VP Frank Pearce for an in-depth look at the new races and issues from the outstanding expansion!

    CVG has posted this preview of World of Warcrafts's upcoming expansion, The Burning Crusade. Find out what they learned while Frank Pearce gives them a test run of the game.

    Aesthetically, whatkind of World Of Warcraft character do you go for? Do you like the big, no-nonsense, tough-guy orcs and taurens - the kind that could splinter bones with their little fingers and don't get invited to dinner parties? Maybe you don't like straying too far from the norm and prefer humans. Sensible, dependable, no unnecessary horns, lovely little bit of Chaucerian countryside and scones for tea. Perhaps you prefer something a bit nicer to look at, a lithe female night-elf with a chain-mail bikini and a generous nature when it comes to giving out lap-dances?

  • TrustedReviews Offers a Preview

    World of Warcraft's upcoming expansion, The Burning Crusade is the subject of the latest update on TrustedReviews site. They offer a preview today that gives their view of the expansion.

    Unless you’ve been living in a gaming vacuum for the past couple of years, you will have heard of World of Warcraft. To call WoW a phenomenon is an understatement of epic proportions, and to be honest I don’t think that anyone, Blizzard included, realised just how massive this game was going to be. There are always stories in the media about obsessive gamers that lose whole weekends, or even weeks to their favourite game, but WoW took this sickness to another level!
