  • New Issue 7 Screenshots!

    TenTonHammer bring you a brand-new five spot of screens from the next big thing to hit Paragon City, virtual home of Cryptic Studios' popular City of Heroes & City of Villains MMOs. We introduced the free CoV expansion "Issue 7" last week with sundry screens and a movie from the storyline-heavy "Grandville" and the Pvp-packed zone "Recluse's Victory," now we have some new screens detailing the 300+ missions found in Issue 7. These "Deadly Manifest" missions include new "custom missions," and are designed to take players from level 40 to level 50.

    In order to survive, every villain must decide whom to trust among the many factions that exist in the Rogue Isles, each hoping to advance their agenda without displeasing Lord Recluse. After spending time on all the islands, one thing each villain reaching a high threat level will begin to discern is a strange pattern of mutations across the region. For example, the Arachnoids found across Grandville are no natural beasts. What are these grotesque creatures and where do they come from?

    That, and (judging from the screenshot) airport security just isn't what it used to be! Check out the rest of what City of Villains Issue 7 has to offer right here at TenTonHammer!

  • It's not a surprise or a secret that I've become a Perpetual Fangrrl. I like what they're doing and I believe in the products that they're creating. Gods & Heroes looks just flat out amazing and even though I haven't seen anything solid from Star Trek Online yet I am that much of a fan of both the genre and the developer that I'm already hooked. So I troll the G&H boards with regularity. This is the offering for today. Deo's Space Blog for 3/8/06 In it he speaks about the deal with Sony and some new features of the game.

    Now as far as the announcement of the god system change, I found out about the change several weeks ago and I talked it over with a couple of people internally. After thinking about it, we realized that the changes were so significant that it would require a massive revamp of the “gods” section of the website. At the time our new web designer, Will, hadn’t started with the company and was at least a week or two out from starting. I had already begun work on all the written revisions of the new website and we had established an internal official launch date of the new website, so the decision was made to simply hold off on that announcement until we launched the new design. This was my call and due to all the factors combined, I still believe it is the best one.

    It leaves me wondering if I should send over cookies and chocolate milk with a note begging to let me into a beta. Any beta will do!

  • Yesterday (or the day before, time is blurring these days) I mentioned that NCSoft signed a deal with Spacetime Studios to create a spankin new Sci Fi MMO game. GameCloud has an interview with Co-founder Gary Gattis.

    Gamecloud - Your first title will be in the MMO genre. Why did Spacetime wish to enter this genre at this time with so many other MMO games already out in the market and more in the works?

    Gary Gattis - The team has built successful MMOs together before, so we had strong reason to believe that we could do it again. The specific genre that we are developing in is relatively untapped.

    As a side note, the company is hiring. So, if you'd like to jump into this project and you have the experience, go to www.spacetimestudios.com to find the openings.
