  • Tradeskill changes are a'comin'.

    MPOGD discusses tradeskills in this interview with Emily Taylor, the new EverQuest 2 tradeskills game designer.

    "Major overhaul" is a subjective term, what one person might consider major, another might not, so this is a difficult question to answer. From my point of view, at this point I am only making changes as needed, but some of the needs are quite large, so that can still involve a significant degree of change. The driving force behind any change varies, depending what it is.

  • Keeping the Everquest series alive and kicking...

    While much of the attention normally generated by SOE's FanFaire was drowned out by the enormously loud BlizzCon, SOE certainly has been sitting on its laurels. Gamasutra has fielded an interview with SOE's head of their San Diego studio, Nicholas Beliaeff, and they discuss everything from FreeRealms to the future of the EQ series.
