  • MMOs take spots 3 and 4 in the US PC games charts for May 7-13

    Well, Arena.net doesn't want Guild Wars Factions to be known as an MMORPG (they're too good for us) but Factions fell in at fourth spot. World of Warcraft still reigns at 3rd spot, it's been in the top five since charts were chiseled in stone.

    Speaking of holdovers from November 2004, World of Warcraft was the number two game of the week, yet again showing the masses' desire to emigrate to Azeroth. It was followed by newcomer Guild Wars Factions, the first stand-alone expansion for NCsoft's free massively multiplayer online role-playing game.

    See the rest of the charts breakdown at Gamespot.

  • Bringing ruin to the ruins.

    WoW @ Ten Ton Hammer's Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj guide continues to expand today with a guide to defeating Ayamiss the Hunter.

    Ayamiss is the fifth boss in World of Warcraft's Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj (AQ20) and is a large flying insect similar to the many you have already encountered, except much larger. It is an interesting fight as you can not conventionally tank him while he is flying for the first half of the fight. Once on the ground though the fight is fairly standard.

    Check out the complete guide here: WoW @ TenTonHammer's Guide to the Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj.

  • A Guide to WoW's Tirisfal Glades, Levels 1-10

    With their ghastly character model features and creepy starting zone, we figured we should do everything possible to make starting out as one of World of Warcraft's Undead as fright-free as possible. TenTonHammer provides everything you need to get from level 1 to 10 in Tirisfal Glades as quickly and painlessly as possible, including lore, a map, a region walkthrough featuring details on 35 quests, and links to additional resources. With this guide, "you" are all that's needed to put the "fun" in "Forsaken" (har har ::jaw falls off::).

    "All Forsaken begin their un-lives in Tirisfal Glades, and you'll quickly find out that no race is more isolated than the Forsaken. Fighting not only against the Alliance forces but also the Undead Scourge held in ghastly thrall by the Lich King, few among even their allies in the Horde ranks would deem them trustworthy. Their presence is an aberration against nature, and their core motivations under the demon lord Verimathras are cloudy at best. Despite all the distrust, you'll note that many of the Forsaken simply wish to carry on their lives as before the Plague came; as you journey through Tirisfal Glades you'll see the twisted trappings of a humdrum existance. Apart from a few morbidly ambitious apothecaries, the Forsaken stance is predominantly defensive. "

    Check out the WoW @ Ten Ton Hammer First 10 Levels in Tirisfal Glade guide, and give your corpse a new lease on life.

  • This man is so engaging that he could probably sell a tract of cockroach infested land to me and I'd ask for more.

    Another E3 has come and gone and the Tabula Rasa team comes home satisfied, enthusiastic, determined, energized and exhausted all in one. We spent three days showing the game to colleagues, press, and buyers and we feel that we have a great game on our hands. Those of us who didn’t make it to Los Angeles were in Austin working hard on the game or escorting, in game, the players that were logging on at the E3 floor. Those of us who did make it to Los Angeles participated in one of the best booths at the show. I would like to thank Mutaytor and Chris Vrenna for making our booth experience one of the best at the show.

    One of the great things about E3 is watching how people play our game. We were gratified that anyone could get in and play the game without lots of instruction time, and the people that did play said that it felt right. When we made the decision to create an RPG with shooter style controls, we knew that feel was going to be very, very important. So, now we just have to finish polishing the game by making sure it runs well on lots of hardware, getting in the rest of the content and opening up the servers for Friends and Family testing.

    So that’s it for this year. My final impression of Tabula Rasa at E3 is this: those that saw the game thought it looked beautiful and intriguing. Those people that played it had lots of fun and often stayed for hours, and that’s all you can ask for. I’ll leave you with some links that tell the story better than I will:

  • Little was "really" known about Tabula Rasa's new incarnation before GDC 2005. However, all of the good pulp free juice came from E3 concerning this game. Find out what "Lord British" has to say to Boomtown in this E3 interview.

    n Tabula Rasa you don’t select a class when you’re creating your character.

    - It’s a very bad concept that players have to select a class as soon as they start creating their characters. You normally don’t know much about the game when you start out and the risk of making a wrong choice is big. In Tabula Rasa, if you aren’t satisfied with your character choices you can always go back to your clone, explains Richard Garriot.

  • (sings) Buru... Buru.... Buru the Gorger, strong as he could be...

    The folks at the World of Warcraft Ten Ton Hammer community have a new boss guide for ya. Buru the Gorger is the forth boss in the Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj (AQ20) and is a very large tick. You think you dislike ticks in real life? Wait till you check out Buru!

    Buru is a very entertaining encounter. The main reason is that EVERYONE gets to have a chance to kite him around his room. I find it very entertaining to try to kite a boss around since it is not a normal task for many classes. Hence Buru is one of my favorite encounters.

    Find out all about beating Buru here: TenTonHammer's Guide to the Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj (AQ20) at WoW - TenTonHammer.
