  • Blizzard has announced that they have opened the new PVP server Gul'dan! Yay! Maybe I'll get PK'd less! Heh probably not I'm the worst PVP'er ever.

    But more exciting that even that is A New Contest Announcement!

    Are you an aspiring filmmaker? If so, you're in the right place! The World of Warcraft Movie Contest sponsored by Xfire is a great way for up-and-coming directors to show off their moviemaking skills. We're looking for players to create movies, set in Azeroth, in three main categories: Dance, Comedy, and Drama. The content requirements for the movies are open-ended, as long as they're created in game.

    This contest runs from December 14, 2005 to January 21, 2006. Five prizes, such as Xbox 360 Premium game consoles, XFX GeForce 7800 GTX video cards (PCI-Express), and Sound Blaster X-Fi Platinum sound cards, will be awarded for each of the three categories listed above. In addition, 10 prizes will be awarded for special categories, including: Best Picture, Best Dialog, Best Editing, and Best Music.

    You'll have to click on that picture below the dialogue for rules and prizes. Good Luck!

  • And without a "Thanks for all the fish!" even! I would say how rude but I fired it up and then promptly quit myself. Wired has a fabulous article on the mass exodus of players within the SWG Universe. No longer is it the complex challenging game that it used to be.

    You should read it, it's good.

  • You know this game really NEEDED a new review. I tried playing it again recently and what I experienced went beyond confusion. *whisper* It was easier the other way *end whisper*

    Anyhoo, IGN does a marvelous job of explaining, critiquing and whatnot. They end up giving the game a 7.7/ 10. Not too shabby although nothing of supersonic stardom. For a game that's over it's prime it's a good score.

  • Not Ready for Retirement
    EverQuest Titanium, a boxed set including every expansion released for the game, goes on sale for $19.99 January 11th. Also, players with cancelled accounts can grab 21 days of free play if they reactivate before January 13th. All of this co-incides with SOE's release of EQplayers.com, a site chock full of real-time player profiles and other community-friendly features.

    In addition to EverQuest Titanium, SOE is launching EQ Players, a website designed to extend the player's interaction with the game outside of the game world. This new service gives players more ways to access, track and expand their in-game characters by obtaining character statistics, profiles, item information, in-game activities and more all in one place. The website, www.eqplayers.com, will launch on December 15, 2005, and will have profiles for more than 4.9 million characters and more than 335 million total inventory items. EQ Players will be available for EverQuest players to try, at no additional cost, until December 29, 2005, after which time some EQ Players features will carry a monthly fee. In addition, as a special offer, SOE will reactivate previously closed EverQuest accounts for 21 days of free gameplay but the former EverQuest players must take advantage of this offer before January 13, 2006.

  • WoW: The Burning Crusade At CVG
    Are they on fire or something?
    CVG
    got a chance to drill the mind of Shane Dabiri about the upcoming expansion
    for World of Warcraft.
    Who is Shane Dabiri? Find out:

    What are you currently working on at the moment in the expansion?
    Shane Dabiri: As lead producer on the World of Warcraft team, I'm currently
    undertaking the exciting task of dividing and focusing our resources on the
    development of both the expansion set and on the continuing content development
    for the current game. This should help us streamline our efforts for 2006.
    What percentage of the content is geared toward players of all levels, and
    what percentage to only level 60 (and above with the level cap increase) characters?
    Shane Dabiri: As is traditional with MMO expansions, a large portion of the
    content will be geared toward characters in the range between the current
    maximum and new maximum levels, starting at around level 55. However, we do
    also plan to add content to better tie in the new races to the world, so players
    who choose to start as one of the new races will experience a great deal of
    new content up to about level 20.
