World of Warcraft + Stargate Worlds Features

  • Q & A with Dan Elggren

    Warcry.com posted this interview with Dan Elggren today. Keep reading to see what they were able to learn about the upcoming Stargate Worlds.

    WarCry Network: Every developer I've ever spoke to who tried to do guns with RPG mechanics said the task was a nightmare. How are you going to get guns to feel right in your RPG?

    Dan Elggren: Stargate Worlds is not a first person shooter. We want combat to be fast and deadly, but not to the point of one-shot kills. Like the show, we are making combat in Stargate Worlds exciting and filled with constant action. We are tailoring the mechanics of our system to bring this to life within the game.

    There is no doubt that it's a challenge for our team, but we are confident that we will do it right.

  • Maestro of 'Warcraft' on 'directing' players

    The Hollywood Reporter posted an interview with Blizzard's VP of Game Design, Rob Pardo.

    In the two years since "WoW" was released in November, 2004, the game has managed to nab a 53% world market share, which translates to well over $1 billion in revenue. As Blizzard's vp of game design, Rob Pardo is the man ultimately responsible for making it happen. Which is why, this year, "Time" magazine named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

  • Hit or Miss?

    GamerZines has posted their preview of the Burning Crusades. You'll want to see what they have to say about the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion.

    World of Warcraft is quite popular, apparently. So the developers have this expansion pack that a few people will probably be interested in.

    OK, we can't type any more with a straight face. The Burning Crusade is of course the most hotly anticipated expansion to the unbelievably huge World of Warcraft. Raising the level cap to 70, introducing new races, new quests, new areas and so much more, The Burning Crusade is so close and yet so achingly far away still.

  • Burning Crusade Uncovered

    IGN has posted a preview of Wow's upcoming expansion, Burning Crusades.

    With the level cap being raised from 60 to 70, you can forget you have to eat actual food all over again. With the grind to 70 likely to take at least a couple weeks for even the most hardcore players, it's quite exceptional that Blizzard has managed to keep it feeling fresh. This is in no small part thanks to many creative new talents, special abilities and spells that you gain as you progress.

  • Hands On Impressions of Burning Crusade

    Pro-G has posted their hands on impressions of the Burning Crusades. Keep reading to see what they think of the upcoming expansion to World of Warcraft.

    The Burning Crusade presents an interesting conundrum for World of Warcraft players: drop your existing high level character for the allure of starting one of two new races, or keep on with your uber-equipped killing machine and brave the shattered realm of Outland.

    So far, most beta players have opted for the high level rewards of Outland over starting a new character. But this isn't to the detriment of TBC's two new races, the manga-esque Blood Elves and the big blue aliens the Draenei - both have aspects that have drawn concern from the typically vocal WoW fan base, but overall are shaping up nicely.

  • FiringSquad Previews The Burning Crusade

    FiringSquad.com has posted a preview of the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion, The Burning Crusade.

    The Blood Elves are the new Horde race, Blizzard’s answer to the calls for attractive models and Paladins for the Horde. Continuing the story from WarCraft III, the Blood Elves have split from the Alliance by making common cause with Illidan. Their lands and Silvermoon, their city, lay in ruins. The passage of the Scourge has quite literally left a mark on what were once the beautiful lands of the elves.

  • Get To Know Nick LaMartina, Sound Designer For Stargate Worlds

    The official site for Stargate Worlds has been updated with another in their series of Development Team Profiles. This time we get to go into the world of sound with Nick LaMartina.

    My love of games started at the early age of 2, when my dad took my brother and me into his work to play a game called “Lunar Lander”. It was my first exposure to gaming, and not long after, our dad gave us a Commodore 64 to share when we were 3. Our earliest experiences were filled with the likes of Ducks Ahoy, Congo Bongo, JumpMan, Pole Position, and Parallax. It was at that point that we both also found a love of video game music from the masters like Chris Huelsbeck, Martin Galway, and Rob Hubbard.

  • Burning Crusades Hands-On Preview

    ProG has joined the host of sites getting a chance to preview the upcoming expansion for World of Warcraft. Nightfall has been a hot topic of late. Keep reading to see what their impressions are.

    It's probably the most anticipated expansion in videogame history.

    The problem for WoW fanboys like me who have been dipping their virtual toes (or, if you're a Tauren, hoofs) into the beta for the last couple of weeks is that there's absolutely masses of new stuff to wade through, and it's almost impossible to be objective about it.
