  • Gamespy's Delsyn goes hands-on with DDO's Module 3, where he learns to hate sand, jackal-men and women with six arms.

    Gampspy has posted a preview of the upcoming Module 3 for Dungeons and Dragons Online. Keep reading to see what they have to say...

    Turbine is walking a pretty fine line these days. Its high profile MMO, Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach, has gotten great praise for its fidelity to the paper-and-pencil experience but equally harsh criticism for the absence of many of the most common features of MMOs, such as broad, open areas and PvP combat. It's to Turbine's credit that the DDO development team is attempting to address these criticisms, adding in more "MMO-style features" without compromising the vision of an authentic online D&D game. I recently had the opportunity to visit Turbine's Cambridge, Massachusetts, studio to go hands-on with some of the upcoming content from Module 3: The Demon Sands and see how it's coming along.

  • Exclusive Interview: Dungeon Delving with Bill Fisher

    Remember back in the day when you used to feel a genuine tingle of fear when you entered a dungeon in your favorite MMO? Sigil, the developers of Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, has promised to bring back dungeon crawling, as well as the dungeon fear factor, in a big way. We interviewed Sigil Senior Game Designer, Bill Fisher, and came up with some intriguing details on dungeon delving.

    [Bill Fisher]: To put the fun, challenge, and scare-factor back [into dungeon crawls], we are making our NPCs a bit harder than some people today may be used to. Areas that cause you to bite it if you do not control your situation will be more common in Vanguard.

    We will continue to tweak the power of certain types of epic NPC spells that require you to counter or suffer horribly, melee stances that maim and debilitate the players that must be reacted to, the frequency of runners, early runners, and other situations that the players will actually need to pay attention to in the group settings.

    Keep reading to see what else Bill Fisher had to say. Head over to Vanguard Ten Ton Hammer for more news and information on all things Vanguard.
