  • Dev journal #6 is up at MMORPG.com along with some hefty new screens.

    Welcome to the Caribbean – this is how you’ll be sailing from island to island in Pirates of the Burning Sea, the upcoming Pirate-themed Massively Multiplayer game from Flying Lab Software.

    As you can imagine, the biggest challenge with any sailing game is the sailing, itself. How do you make sailing fun when your world encompasses all the Caribbean islands, and the continental coastlines from South Carolina to French Guiana? Sailing is fantastically interesting when there’s something exciting going on – a fight or a storm – but it’s terribly boring to sail around the Caribbean in real-time when nothing is happening.

  • Unfortunately another one bites the dust.

    It's not a Happy New Year here at Smiling Gator Productions.

    Unfortunately, the end of 2005 is also the end of SGP. Our committed funds have run dry and we were not successful in the hunt for additional investment. The websites and email will be disabled in the coming days, so this is our last announcement before we shut down for good. Thanks again to our fantastic forums community for all the support and contributions! We hope you find another project and give them the devotion and incisive comments we've enjoyed reading for the past 17 months.

    For those who are interested, the Twilight War community will continue on Twilight War HQ.

  • After multiple shortie packs (what I call adventure packs) Sony is releasing it's new Expansion pack Kindom of Sky. No release date was announced.

    "Kingdom of Sky offers something for all of our EverQuest II players," said Laura Naviaux, senior brand marketing manager, Sony Online Entertainment. "For the seasoned EQII player, Kingdom of Sky increases the amount of high level content in a world filled with intrigue and the potential destruction of Norrath by the evil dragon lords. The second expansion pack brings the excitement of dragon battles and is timed to coincide with the newly-added Player vs. Player (PvP) action."

  • SOE announced on the Official Forums today that they're releasing yet another expansion pack for their MMO Monster EverQuest.

    “EverQuest Prophecy of Ro will give players the opportunity to interact with and transform the online world of Norrath like never before,” said Chris Sturr, Sr. Brand Manager, Sony Online Entertainment. “In addition to a variety of new features, EverQuest Prophecy of Ro continues the fascinating storyline as new and old players alike explore, battle and adventure through EverQuest on more than 30 new missions encountering new creatures and environments throughout the journey.”

    Players will be able to interact with the world thanks to three new features. The first, spheres of influence, can be used to thwart your enemies or aid allies. The second feature is a trap system that will let players deceive opponents with player-set traps. And for the first time in EverQuest, players will be able to destroy objects in the world; doors can be bashed in, walls can be toppled and towers can be destroyed, leading to a new level of interactivity within the game and opening up a new realm of design.

    It's amazing that this game is still going strong after nearly seven years since release. Shows you that you can't keep a good game down.

  • In probably one of the hardest to read formats I've ever seen in my entire life, Krel's Library has an interview up with an anonymous developer regarding the status of the Realms of Torment / Mourning MMO. It's on again off again status clearly does not er.. clear up with the interview. But it's a good read anyway.

  • When CNN leads with Cheerleading injuries on the rise Good God Man! What is the world coming to? However will we win that game if Becky Sue doesn't get over her sprained pelvis?

    I laugh and I joke, however, as everyone knows this is the time of the year when all of the developers collapse from the sheer stress of the Holiday Rush. So the result of said collapse is a decidedly lack of good postable news.

    Please bear with us in this "dry" time. I promise lots more sarcastic, droll, witty, bitchy comments.
