  • A new developer journal from the guys bringing 9Dragons to the West

    MMORPG.com has posted the latest in their series of developer journals for the upcoming 9 Dragons. This journal includes several new screenshots.

    While you read this, I want you to use your imagination and create a picture in your mind. A vision of a distant land, many, many years ago. See in your mind's eye ancient China, some time during the Ming Dynasty. See yourself, a poor young peasant, struggling down the dusty street of a small village. You do not have even a single coin to call your own. Still, you may not have money, but you do have great dreams. You have dreams of glory and wealth. You have dreams of standing up for yourself against the village bullies who terrorise you. But how? An old friend told you that by learning the skills of Kung Fu you could grasp these dreams. But who will teach you? How will you learn?

  • Matt Miller Talks to Boomtown

    RPG.Boomtown had a chance to sit down with Matt Miller, Leqd Developer for City of Heroes about the upcoming Issue 8.

    City of Heroes is about to get its eighth expansion in less than three years. Titled “To Protect and Serve” this latest issue is going to mark the first time since the launch of City of Villains that the Cryptic team turns its focus back to the original game. Issue 8 will revamp a city zone, introduce newspaper-like missions (one of the most loved features of City of Villians) and much more. On top of that, a new system of veteran rewards will be introduced. This means that for every three months you play the game, you’ll gain access to cool stuff like costumes and special powers.

  • MMORPG.com Tells All

    MMORPG.com has posted a review of Dark and Light. This review includes some really nice screenshots. Keep reading to learn more.

    Take the world of an MMORPG, multiply it by a hundred and add complete freedom of movement and a fluid day/night cycle with changing seasons and weather. This is Dark and Light. The world of Dark and Light is so huge that you can actually get lost in it. You can spend hours just exploring and enjoying the wonderful views of bright deserts, snowy mountain peeks and dark caverns. Unfortunately, this big beautiful world is pretty much empty.

    The environment may never stop impressing, but the character models certainly do. They do not make good use of the current technology and their animations are at times silly. In fights your character sometimes swings his sword in circles above his head before hitting the enemy. The characters do a disservice to the environments they populate.

    Get clicking to read the full review. Do you agree with their point of view? Let us know in the forums right here at Ten Ton Hammer.
