  • Let's hope you never run into the dreaded GamerGod during a dungeon crawl.
    GamerGod makes some good points about why Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach satisfies its DnD heritage and makes for a good MMORPG.

    I’ve played D&D for as long as I can remember, and I always wanted someone to make a good D&D game where I played one character in a party and went out adventuring. I always dreamt that one day there would be a totally interactive D&D world where my character could live and meet people, slay mighty dragons, and have people recognize who I was. I've been thinking a lot about what I know of this game, and the thing that I like most is how this MMO has set itself apart from the rest. Most of the elements in DDO are headed in different directions to other MMO's; it forces you to form parties, real time combat, no mounts, and no houses. It's a risky strategy, considering many people play MMO's to buy houses, ride horses, and farm gold and become an almighty ruler of the game - but I think it's a brilliant idea and a brilliant-looking game. For many people, this game will not live up to their hopes or expectations, and although I haven’t played the game yet I'm eagerly awaiting the release. What do I think? Is DDO worth all the hype? My answer is that my dream may no be longer a dream.

  • GameSpy rolls for initiative.
    DDO is still in the "hands on" phase of previewing (followed by the "OMG roxxz0rz!" preview phase, which is followed by the "preview" preview phase... something like that), and GameSpy doesn't disappoint.

    After all, what better genre than the massively multiplayer online role-playing game to bring the "role" back into what usually becomes merely an endless treadmill of players searching for the bigger, better magical doodad? Having been lost in the D&D Online beta for about three days now, I'm seriously impressed at how well Turbine is translating not just the mechanics, but the very "feel" of classic D&D gameplay to the MMO format.

    No dice bag needed to view GameSpy's "hands on" preview of Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach.

  • Some fancy Dungeons and Dragons pictures, ironically showing neither a dungeon nor a dragon.

    CVG has posted two new Dungeons and Dragons Online screenshots.

    " Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach is set on the continent of Xen'drik in the world of Eberron with players questing, adventuring, hitting things with swords and calling people "n00bs" and so on. "

  • How do the dragons fit down those tiny tunnels to get into the dungeon in the first place?
    Dungeons and Dragons Online received twice the loving today with previews posted on both GameDaily and MMORPG

    " Recently, I had the opportunity to attend a press event for Turbine’s Dungeons and Dragons Online: Stormreach. Before I even left, I knew what to expect. I was told that the game’s lead designer, Ken Troop was going to give us a brief overview of the game before we ourselves would have a chance to sit down in front of it. "

  • It's all hands-on, without the usual harassment suits that follow.
    We were there. They were there. It was written about everywhere. Dungeons and Dragons Online: Stormreach hands-on information is stamping your way faster than a Bugbear with a burr on its rump. TenTonHammer, GameSpot and IGN all have their impressions online for your dice rolling, dungeon crawling pleasure.

    " Turbine cleared out Dragon Bar, a fine establishment in San Francisco's North Beach district, and brought all the necessary hardware to provide core community members, pen-and-paper (PnP) gamers, and fansite reps a "hands on" tour of Dungeons and Dragons Online: Stormreach (or DDO, for short) . The atmosphere was charged with excitement as the alcohol and gourmet vittles flowed freely, and I'd be remiss not to thank the Turbine crew for pulling off a fitting introduction for this party-intensive game. "

    Who's da man? You're da man! Now get to it!

  • Orcs from Sesame Street?
    The newest trailer from Turbine features an orc voiceover (that really sounds a lot like Grover from the popular, long-lived kids show) daring you to join the battle so he and his friends can beat on ya. The dub might be a bit comical, but the glimpse inside the game the trailer gives is entirely worthwhile.

    "This exclusive DDO trailer is a ~30 meg download and features a look at many of the enemies you'll encounter beneath the player city."
