  • MMORPG.com has a 9 Dragons Developer Diary up. There's a little Kung Fu fighting, a little butt kicking and alot of a good information here.

    There are generally lots of monsters wandering around and these can give adventurers a hard time on their own. But 9Dragons is special because there are also five clans of monsters with special powers of their own. They have their own unique background histories just like the Shao-Lin and the Wu-Tang!

    There are five major monster clans in 9Dragons. They are the Clan of Secret Shadows, the Clan of Death Valley, the Clan of the King of Hell, the Clan of Beasts, and the Clan of the Golden War.

    There is too much to say about these clans to fit it all in to one article so I have broken this up into two pieces. In the first I shall deal with the Clan of Secret Shadows and the Clan of Death Valley.

    Can Acclaim bust into the genre with this game and overset it's previous difficulties? Only time will tell.

  • The Easter Bunny will never survive this post apocalyptic nuke. I see fur and feet flying everwhere. On the other hand.. think of all of the luck we'll have with those severed bunny toes.

    Citizens of Novus Prepare for the Easter Invasion!
    Beginning on Good Friday and building up to what will be one of the biggest battles seen in any MMORPG to date; involving hundreds of monsters in full out war, the planet Novus will be invaded and only you can help! Will you heed the call? It’s time to declare your allegiance in the planets last stand…

    Friday 14th – A siege on the HQs from the Bulky Lunkers. Usually based in the Sette Dessert the Lunkers have gone crazy and started attacking the Faction HQ’s, no one knows why or how they got there but why miss an opportunity for some profitable hunting!

    Saturday 15th – On closer inspection the Crag mine control centre is attracting a lot of strange activity, is this just a random occurrence, or is there more to this? Can these creatures be destroyed? It’s up to you to investigate and report to your race leader.

    Sunday 16th – Sette Invasion - Can all 3 Factions put aside their differences as the strange creatures seize control of Sette and make their last stand. The Cora, Accretia and Bellato will need to fight back against this invasion to ensure the survival of Novus. Are reports of a weird presence in the Sette temple correct?

    For those lucky few to make it through the chaotic struggle a reward will be granted for your valour in combat.

    More details are on the RF Online Official Site.

  • Every time I see a new piece of concept art from this game, it takes my breath away. I don't know how true it will be to the story or how far they can go with it.. but the visuals, they just leave me speechless.

    With that said, there is new lore today from the Official Lord of the Rings Online site.

    This watch-tower, its name long-forgotten, once overlooked the eastern reaches of Fornost of which little now remains. Though crumbling and decrepit, it still stands as a grand testament to the architects of Arnor, a monument both carved from the living stone upon which it rests and built from stone blocks and mortar. The ruined tower yet watches over the eastern gate of Fornost, which still stands amidst crumbling walls, bearing the charge of the Seven Stars, though the courtyard beyond has become home to cursed shades, tainted by failure and betrayal.

    Go read the rest and see what I mean about the art.

    Did you know that we have a really great Lord of the Rings Online Community?

  • His name is Andrew Binder and his mission? To Annihilate all coding bugs in existence! This new test lead for Flying Lab Software makes his Developer's Log Debut with .. er... flying colors?

    I suppose an introduction is in order. My name is Andrew Binder and I am the test lead here at Flying Lab Software. I have been testing, test-leading, test-managing, games for a little over 12-years now. I cut my QA teeth at Dynamix in Eugene, Oregon (Aces of the Pacific, Red Baron, Trophy Bass, Starsiege, Tribes, etc), took a turn at Tiburon (Madden 00), swung through Microsoft (Zoo Tycoon franchise), and now I have come to hang my tricorn here at FLS. I have likely been a geek and a technophile from the day I opened my eyes and could recognize the beauty that is a blinking LED. My mother humored my need and through her and the rest of my family I got the original Atari PONG, a Magnavox Odyssey, the Atari 2600, a VIC-20, and a 386-DX25 as my first "modern" computer while I was in college. My contributions (via paper routes and other odd jobs) to this mess were a Colecovision, a Vectrex, and my pride-and-joy Apple IIe. I won’t even try to list the various and sundry blinking, building, battery operated, toys that used to lie around our house in various states of dismantlement (I was *that* kid who would get a $100 toy for Christmas, spend one day playing with it, and months taking it apart and then trying to put it back together- usually unsuccessfully. Personality clue – I’ve been in test for 12-years). Now that I am older and “wiser” I try to reserve my destructive tendencies for software, and the odd home repair job (sorry honey...).

    He's an entertaining guy. You should read the rest.

  • There is a new piece in the Developer Corner on the official EverQuest 2 site.

    The Rise of the Orcs
    Kerya stayed low and close to the trunk of the tree, ensuring she wasn't in the orcs' line of sight. It had taken considerable study of their crude language to be able to make sense of their guttural grunts and snorts.

    "Stronger now!" the larger orc said to the smaller ones. "This new armor will strike fear into the Militia! They will fall before the might of the Bloodskull!"

    "The treaty with our Rujarkian brothers was wise, General Vhar'Taug," one of the smaller orcs responded. "With this superior equipment, Freeport will soon be ours for the taking."

    While you're wondering what's new with EQ2, go ahead and take a look at our EverQuest 2 Community. We have Fan Faire Coverage!
