  • Big Black Crows with pointy teeth.
    Turbine has posted more creature information for Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar. The creature of choice today is the Crebain. There is a fair to slim chance that they wrote this:

    "These menacing black birds from the lands between the Misty Mountains and the dark forest of Fangorn are often controlled by the forces of darkness, acting from above as the eyes and ears of the enemy.  Large and intelligent, flocks of these crow-like creatures darken the skies on their mission of evil.  But be warned – even one Craban is capable of alerting the enemy with the swiftness of the wind. "

  • Mutant Shaman.
    The folks at NCSoft / NetDevil have posted some new Auto Assault information. Today we meet the Mutant Shaman, the Shemi 10 (looks like a big rig) and the nasty looking Alchemy Van. They might have written this:

    "The Mutants are a very cohesive race, bound by their relationship to the Contamination and their religious zealotry. While the ability to live and bond with the Contamination comes somewhat naturally, the Mutants' intense and passionate spiritual devotion – bordering on righteous fanaticism – is fueled by the Shamans."

  • It blows up real good.
    The good folks at NCSoft / NetDevil have another new class article posted. This time it is the Biomek Agent. They wrote something that looks disturbingly like this:

    "Biomeks rely on force to solve most problems. However, this does not mean that they act rashly or without preparation. A special class of warriors is trained in the art of gathering timely and accurate information for the Order to exploit. With advanced combat skills and extremely fast vehicles, the Agents infiltrate, observe, and sometimes eliminate threats to the Order."

  • Questions? Answers.
    Vault Network has a fan-fest developer interview posted. Somebody wrote this, maybe:

    "I got a chance to sit down with Dallas Dickinson, SOE Senior Producer at Fan Fest and ask a few questions about Star Wars Galaxies. Some of these are kind of random, as we were writing down questions to ask on Friday night at dinner. Thanks to PhantomOfTheMMO for his help in coming up with the questions, and thanks to Dallas for taking the time to sit down and answer them for me."

  • Insert your favourite Conan quote here.
    Our good pals at Killer Betties have posted a preview of Funcom's in production MMOG, Age of Conan. We're nearly certain that they wrote this:

    "One of the first things that became apparent was the gritty nature of the setting. The proof of this will be in the final product, but an effort was made to escape the 'high fantasy' style with its gleaming weapons and armor, bright world, and flashy characters. The armor and weapons are beautiful but obviously meant for use in battle, the buildings and NPCs are, if not dirty, then far from sparkling; and it is easy to grasp the barbaric nature of the world. Age of Conan is expected to have an M rating, though for overall themes and general violence rather than anything explicit."

  • You'll have a demon of a time in London.
    The Laser has posted their preview of Flagship Studios upcoming title, Hellgate: London. They probably wrote this:

    "Mixing RPG and FPS elements, Namco and Flagship Studios' upcoming Hellgate: London looks like an innovative PC title. The game is set after a demonic invasion and casts players as a soldier fighting through the desolate, deserted streets of London. While the game emphasizes visceral action, you'll also be able to upgrade your character's attributes and weapons with both modern weaponry and ancient spells. It's an interesting combination of genres that sounds quite promising at this stage of development. Read our preview and find out why Hellgate: London is set to thrill fans of both genres later this year."

  • War is Hell, and so is London.
    VGO Network has posted a preview of Flagship Studios upcoming title, Hellgate: London. It's highly likely that they wrote this:

    "Even in its early stage of development, the graphics are nothing short of amazing. What’s most impressive about them is that most of the environments are randomly generated. Every trip through London’s charred ruins will be completely unique; no two adventures will be exactly alike. Like Diablo II (which many of the team worked on), the only non-randomly generated areas are the safe zones, which are comprised of a series of underground subway terminals where the last of humanity holds out against the hellish onslaught. The environments are as believable as hell on Earth could possibly look due in part to a great team of programmers and artists who have brought a post-apocalyptic London to life. Lava flows freely from under the ground and out of buildings, there are large craters in the streets, rubble lies everywhere, and of course demons wander the ruins looking for prey. Screenshots really don’t do Hellgate justice; you need to experience it first hand to get a real feel for the power of the engine running this game."

  • Roman all over the web.
    RPGVault has posted a preview of Perpetual Entertainment's upcoming title, Gods and Heroes: Rome Rising. It's possible that they wrote this:

    "Another of the key points discussed reinforced and expanded on what was known from before. The gameplay will have a significant quest component. The team has promised quite a number at launch, with a large portion of the action taking place within instanced locations. Some of the tasks will be class-based, while others will be linked to Gods and Heroes pantheon of deities and the powers they can confer to their respective adherents. Since this would appear to be an aspect the team is focused on, one can probably expect to see a lot more about it over the coming months."
