  • It's dark. It's light. You know it... whoo!

    Don't worry, Michael Jackson has nothing to do with the upcoming MMO "Dark and Light" -your kids can safely play. But will they want to? onRPG.com sits down with Alzar, DnL's mysterious surnameless community co-ordinator, to get somewhat of an answer for ya.

    What sets [Dark and Light] apart from other MMOs?

    Immersion is the key word. I invite you to climb up a mountain and to take a flight with your glider, this will change your life forever. You can do anything you want in Dark and Light: be a figher, a politician, a foreteress ruler... If you see a mountain at 50 kilometers far and say "I'm sure that the view can be fine out there", you can do it! the unique huge world is completly yours.

    Whoa, I've never seen a game promise to "change your life forever." Maybe if you read through the Dark and Light interview at onRPG.com, you'll discover that the game will cure cancer and end tyranny the world over!

  • Crusading, so you don't have to.
    TenTonHammer.com locked Darrin McPherson of Sigil in a room and wouldn't let him go until he told us about Paladins in Vanguard: Saga of Heroes. Bridgette Fonda pouted and exclaimed:

    " Paladins, our defenders of light and all that is good. We've had a taste of what is to come with this noble class. However, we wanted more information. TinyRebel, our Paladin class specialist submitted these questions and concerns about the Vanguard: Saga of Heroes Paladin. We were fortunate enough to have Darrin McPherson, answer these questions for us. It looks like the Paladin is going to remain the trusty steadfast class that we've come to know and love over the years. "

  • The interrogation continues.
    MMORPG.com has posted a copy of content already available on the official Saga of Ryzom site. Let's call it their Ryzom Ring (R2) - Developer Diary #3. Jerry Seinfeld screamed plagiarism, then screamed it again because it's a funny sounding word. When he calmed down he said this:

    "In this article, we are going to leave the description of R² tools to one side (for a while) and more generally focus on the “service” provided with the Ryzom Ring extension. Here, the word “service” encompasses all the peripheral features provided alongside the tools for creating and running scenarios. In this article, we will focus on the concepts of collaboration and sharing between pioneers. "

  • More PvP, man on man, woman on woman review goodness.
    The Junkyard has reviewed Guild Wars. Gary Coleman requested polited that we interview him. We politely refused, get it, refuse...Junkyard... bah..Here's what Coleman said:

    " When someone says, "RPG", what do you think of? I would come back with either rocket propelled grenade or a story-driven game involving leveling and lots of monsters/bad guys. Add the prefix "online" and I get monthly fees and other people to romp around with. Guild Wars is something new. While it obeys some old RPG laws, it has also broken or bent others and introduced a few new ones. The end result is something unique and, if I may, something pretty frickin' awesome. "
