  • 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."

  • London becomes the gate to Hell. Beirut vows to climb back to the #1 spot.
    Game Method has writted a preview about Hellgate: London the FPS/MMOG. They may have written this:

    " In the game you’ll meet up with other humans in the tunnels, equip your character with weapons and armor, then form a party and head out into the demon-infested wastelands above. Through the game’s missions, you’ll work to do your part to push back the demons and save the human race. During the game’s single player campaign, you’ll meet up with fellow survivors underground to gather intelligence and rest; whereas playing online, you’ll team up with other players to wreak havoc upon the demons residing above. As in other massively multiplayer games like Guild Wars and Phantasy Star Online, the central “town” areas (tunnels in this case) will be the only places where you’ll see a large number of characters; once you leave town, you’ll rarely encounter anything other than demons "

  • London = Hell. It's the traffic circles that caused it I'm sure. Fragland has posted a preview of Hellgate: London. They for sure wrote the following, maybe: "When looking at the title, it's fairly obvious where this first-person RPG (and not a FPS, like is commonly believed) is situated. Hellgate: London starts out in a not so distant future, where demons are roaming freely in the English capital. As was to be expected, it's your task to "wipe them out, all of them". Ok, enough of these stupid Darth Vader jokes, I'll get back to business." Read the entire Hellgate: London preview at Fragland.

  • Let me turn people into frogs. That would be a humourous, yet villanous act.Game Helper has a preview of City of Villains posted based on their E3 impressions. We're almost positive that they wrote this: "I have a confession to make: I was a City of Heroes junkie. Looking at City of Villains (CoV to those in the know) makes me want to have a relapse. Dave “Zeb” Cook was on hand at NCSoft’s suite to show me some of the tricks to becoming a villain that all heroes may want to soon learn. CoV looks to expand the CoH universe in many cool and interesting ways. First off, it will be the jumping off point for supergroup base building, which has been eagerly anticipated since CoH’s release over a year ago. Also, as a bonus there will be the concept of base raiding—this will really give your characters a good reason for having that auto-targeting turret near the sofa back at base."
