  • The Official site has updated information on the Cenarion Circle Reputation Rewards and Class Quest Rewards

    At last, the long watch has ended - the hero has risen, to mend that which was broken, to unite those who were divided. But the true test is yet to come. When the gates of Ahn'Qiraj open, will the mortal races stand united once again and face the onrushing terror or will they fade silently into the darkness that has risen once again in the distant lands of Silithus?

  • There's a new Age of Conan QNA up at OGaming with Funcom's Gaute Godager.

    OGaming: Why, of all licensed properties to choose from, did you folks decide to go with Conan the Barbarian?

    Gaute Godager: Conan's exploits occur in a very dark, brutal and sensuous universe. You might not realize it, but more than 70 years of books, comics, movies and lore has made the Hyborian realm a very deep and meaningful place to set an online Action-RPG in. Sadly, to many people, their knowledge of the Conan universe extends to the '80s movies [starring actor Arnold Schwarzenegger], with all their strengths and weaknesses. I am glad to inform everyone that Hyboria is so much, so very much, more than that.

    The Hyborian world is like a decadent, dark, twisted and corrupt version of Euro-Asian history. Take a bit of the Roman empire, Mongolian culture, Babylonian mysticism, '30s myths of undiscovered Africa, and much, much more – mix it all and add a dash of brutal darkness and you can see the shadow of something very unique and quite interesting brewing. Put on the lid and let it cook until it is about to explode and you are ready to sample the world of Hyboria...

    I'll tell you why they chose Conan.. it's because he's the most butt kickingest barbarian that ever lived! Sheesh.

  • Here it is, although I wouldn't necessarily call it a guide page. We'll use the word guide as it's meant to be termed. It gives you hints on where you should go as a high level. What you should do. There are no walkthroughs here so don't get excited before you leave the gate.

  • In a Press Release today, it has been stated that WoW has a little bit of a discrimination problem. Who is being discriminated against? People of Asian descent primarily. The fear that they are "Chinese Gold Farmers" has given the English speaking servers a bad name.

    There is a common belief among English speaking players in World of Warcraft that most non English speaking players are gold farmers. This is a type of player who is only playing the game to profit, not for the “love of the game.” Gold Farmers are largely despised by players who feel they take away a certain purity of the game.

    To combat gold farmers, players are requesting anybody who wants to join a group to type one or two lines of English. If the sentences or grammar are not proper English these players are rejected from joining this group. This is what is creating the backlash among non-English speaking players with feel they are being discriminated against based on their language.

    There is an article on Kotaku (thanks mmorpgdot) about this issue. I'm not going to say whether I agree with it or not, but I'd love for you to Tell Me! what you think about the whole ordeal.

  • Looks like Blizzard is being kind with the candy again. Blizzplanet has a new Exclusive screen of the upcoming expansion Burning Crusade.

    Blizzard Entertainment has granted an exclusive screenshot of World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Expansion, displaying one of the chambers of the Tower of Kharazhan, known as the Tower of Medivh in Warcraft: The Last Guardian and chapter 8 of the Human Campaign in Warcraft: Orcs and Humans.

    Choose any of the three image sizes.

    The World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Video Tour 1 over at Gamespot shows the room of our exclusive screenshot -- shown at BlizzCon 2005.

    It seems Sargeras/Medivh had a Michael Angelo-esque Artist create a Fresco-painting of Orchish angels on the ceiling.

    Check out our own World of Warcraft site Be sure to read the guides. They're fantastic.

  • Gamezone has the first production diary for Warhammer Online By Destin Bales, Content Director.

    Ten thousand pages. That’s my best guess at the amount of finalized documentation that our content team will produce before the launch of WAR. We should start an office pool, or a printing press. Ten thousand pages for a game based on an existing property rich with detail. I can only imagine the number of pages we’d be writing if we were coming up with a world of our own!

    What in Sigmar’s name are we writing about in 10,000 pages? Well, way back in the beginning of May 2005 after the signing of the deal with Games Workshop at E3, we started with the basics. You see, pre-production documentation serves several purposes. At the most basic level we outline things like:

    It reads more like a QNA, but hey, who am I to judge?
