City of Villains + World of Warcraft + Stargate Worlds + City of Heroes Features, Guides, and more

  • Bad guys as fun guys.
    1UP has a preview of City of Villains posted. It's possible that this coded message was found in the Personals section of
    the newspaper:

    "With great power come great ass-kicking supergadgets and nefarious world-exploding schemes. And no, that wasn't a typo--it's effectively the basis behind City of Villains, the long-awaited follow-up to CGW's 2004 MMORPG of the Year, City of Heroes. At long last, players will finally have the opportunity to get down with their bad selves."

  • Two million subscribers and one interview.
    WorldofWar.net has an interview with the Blizzard development and it's all about, you guessed it, World of Warcraft. They may have written this:

    "Are there any plans at Blizzard to create more individual avatar styles than there are available now?  Could changes like new hairstyles, tattoos, scarring or equipment dye be worked into the current art and code?"

  • Shadowfang Keep Unplugged.
    Our very own World of Warcraft team has produced a guide to Shadowfang Keep. They mentioned that they wrote this:

    "Being a low level and small instance tactics are fairly easy to master in Shadowfang Keep.

    At the beginning of the instance, go in to the room on the right of the entrance as there is no way to raise the gates, don’t bother trying. The monsters here are a low level and should be fairly easy to pull and kill. Continue up the stairs and down the passage to a locked door. If there’s a rogue in your party he can pick it, if not you’ll have to let out the prisoners that are down the stars to the left of the room you are in. Not sure why they are locked up if the have keys, but there you go. To release the prisoners pull the levers by their cell. Through the door is the courtyard."

  • The theme you have all been waiting for.
    A World of Warcreaft XP theme has been created by Stardock. We think that they wrote this:

    "Now you can enjoy the look and feel of World of Warcraft even when log out of the game, thanks to the specially designed World of Warcraft Windows XP desktop theme pack created by Stardock. Using Stardock's Object Desktop technology, the Worldof Warcraft theme pack changes your title bars, Start menu, icons, push buttons, borders, and much more to mirror the user interface from the game."

  • I'm not a bad guy. I just play one in City of Villains.
    Digital Entertainment News has a preview of City of Villains posted. Three out of four villains claim that they wrote this:

    " This year at E3 we had the pleasure of meeting Jack Emmert, Statesman himself from City of Heroes. He was on hand showcasing his upcoming sequel/companion title City of Villains, which, as the name implies focuses on the “other” side of the costumed coin. "

  • WoW, another title for XBox 360?
    Blizzard has been in contact with Microsoft to talk about putting World of Warcraft on XBox 360. 1UP has the scoop. We're nearly positive that they wrote this:

    ""We've been in contact with Microsoft...," said Paul Sams, vice president of business operations at Blizzard. "World of Warcraft was really built with a focus on PC, and while I think it certainly could get to Xbox, it's not something that at this moment we've decided to do.""

  • Battlegrounds movies...Leeroy Jenkins is still teh win.
    Blizzard has posted a Warsong Gultch movie. We think that it's possible they wrote this:

    "This new gameplay trailer features two teams battling it out in Warsong Gulch in a capture-the-flag throwdown. Watch as the blue team powers its way to the all-important flag and brings it home. Is that a Tauren doing a victory dance?"
