  • Ratboy Looks At Dual Boxing

    This week's topic hits home with Ratboy as he discussed the hype surrounding "dual-boxing". Being a former Dual-Boxer himself, Ratboy gives some insight into the craze and how it affects an MMO and its players.

    Allow me to start off by saying I have quite a bit of experience with “dual-boxing” as it’s known. Dual-boxing is the art of signing up for separate accounts to an MMO and simultaneously controlling two or more characters from those accounts. I myself used to be a person who ran two MMO accounts for a single game because it made the experience easier and much more enjoyable, of course that was a long time ago in a galaxy far far away (no, not Star Wars Galaxies)...

  • Double The Previews

    Today both GameSpot and IGN have previews of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning posted. Keep reading to see what they have to say...

    GameSpot starts us off today.

    Nothing says "summer" quite like having a bunch of video games in one place. At a recent press event at which publisher EA Games showed off a great many of its upcoming games, we had a chance to take an updated look at Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, the upcoming massively multiplayer game from developer Mythic and its brand-new publisher and corporate owner.

    According to Mythic's Jeff Hickman, much of the content for the game's first "racial pairing," the dwarves versus the "greenskins" (a faction of orks and goblins), is complete, including many of the lower-level areas and items. In addition, though we were unable to see it in action, Mythic has begun production on the game's high-level player-versus-player (PVP) content, such as capital city raids, which will offer multiple types of treasures (including open, undefended loot and special items that can be obtained only by defeating specific enemy characters, such as merchants, barkeeps, and kings). These raids will let players capture enemy dignitaries and hold them hostage (and for some cheap humor) until they can be rescued by players from the opposing side.

    Does IGN feel the same about this forthcoming game? Take a look and see...

    Electronic Arts was prominently featuring Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning at its press event today, as the game's developer, Mythic, was recently purchased by EA. We got to play the latest build, and while it was basically the same game we played at E3 a couple months ago, there are a few significant updates to report.

  • Will Warhammer Online Be the Next Best Thing?

    Worthplaying has posted a preview of Warhammer Online today. The review is chock full of screenshots and interesting observations...

    When Dark Age of Camelot launched back in 2001, I felt it was EverQuest, only without the parts that I didn't like. By the same token, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning might be World of WarCraft: PVP Done Better.

    Comparing WAR to WoW is inevitable — there are too many similarities to be dismissed. Both feature Orcs with cartoonish armor, both use similar fonts, and heck, even the names are similar. According to Games Workshop — the owners of the Warhammer name — Blizzard ripped them off. That might well be true, since my knowledge of Warhammer is limited to taking a look at a friend's miniatures and thinking, "Painting all of those must have been a hell of a lot of work." Even if Blizzard did borrow heavily from Games Workshop, because WoW launched first, Warhammer Online will be inevitably compared to WoW.

  • Hype Around WO Justified?

    Ratboy talks about the hype around Warhammer Online and if it's
    living up to expectations.

    Having followed Warhammer Online’s history since its beginnings with
    Climax (something best forgotten…) I’ve been watching the fan reactions to the
    game and what they think of it. From my local gaming store to fan emails I’ve
    received from certain articles I’ve written, there seems to be a huge hype
    around Warhammer Online and it only seems to be growing as the game comes
    closer.
