  • Let's hope you never run into the dreaded GamerGod during a dungeon crawl.
    GamerGod makes some good points about why Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach satisfies its DnD heritage and makes for a good MMORPG.

    I’ve played D&D for as long as I can remember, and I always wanted someone to make a good D&D game where I played one character in a party and went out adventuring. I always dreamt that one day there would be a totally interactive D&D world where my character could live and meet people, slay mighty dragons, and have people recognize who I was. I've been thinking a lot about what I know of this game, and the thing that I like most is how this MMO has set itself apart from the rest. Most of the elements in DDO are headed in different directions to other MMO's; it forces you to form parties, real time combat, no mounts, and no houses. It's a risky strategy, considering many people play MMO's to buy houses, ride horses, and farm gold and become an almighty ruler of the game - but I think it's a brilliant idea and a brilliant-looking game. For many people, this game will not live up to their hopes or expectations, and although I haven’t played the game yet I'm eagerly awaiting the release. What do I think? Is DDO worth all the hype? My answer is that my dream may no be longer a dream.

  • Tights, Their Not Just For Women Anymore...
    Protectors
    of Paragon City!
    Miss Liberty has a special message for you...

    Transcript of Miss Liberty’s Radio Address on December 2nd, 2005:
    Heroes of Paragon, as the threat of Arachnos darkens our shores and the Rikti
    menace remains unchecked, these are dangerous times certain to try even the
    strongest hero’s resolve.
    Yet, day after day you ceaselessly strive to protect the freedom and honor
    of your home. Your stalwart struggle against the tyranny of evil is for neither
    fame nor money. Instead you rise above these concerns as you fight for what
    you know in your heart to be right.
    We believe that this selfless dedication to the principles of justice must
    be recognized! In order to acknowledge your superlative contribution to the
    ongoing and ever growing glory of Paragon City, we at Freedom Corps have arranged
    a special holiday gift for you all!

    But, be warned! The City
    of Villians
    has already heard of this and are formulating a plan as we speak!

    Take this to Silver Mantis right away!
    Silver,
    I just overheard a radio address from that old bag Miss Liberty and she’s
    made some tasty toys for her cloth-wearing weaklings to buy a little loyalty.
    Sounds like it will be a high-tech gadget and I’m going to catch a shipment
    before they get to Independence Port. Assuming it isn’t just some holiday
    piece of junk, I want to build it into my armor.
    Lord Recluse gave the go ahead but only if I share the spoils with those
    destined scum that have overrun my territory like rats. Ah well, we can keep
    most of the haul for ourselves as long as we give enough away to keep the
    Arachnos wannabes quiet.

    Hurry! You only have from December 8 to January 2!

  • Dear Santa,
    All I Want For Christmas Is To Play Auto Assault!
    GameSpy's Allen "Delsyn"
    Rausch got to sit with the MMOs Project Lead Scott Brown and discuss some specifics.
    They also have some cool pictures for you to drool over. Your Welcome!

    People crave distinctiveness. Once you get past simple utility, all of a
    product's subsequent features inevitably descend to the realm of "fashion
    statement." The things we wear and drive and eat and utilize in our daily
    lives aren't just useful items, but actually say something about us -- the
    way we feel about ourselves and the way we wish to be perceived by the world.
    A Lexus won't travel any faster than a Toyota Camry in the middle of rush-hour
    freeway traffic, and a PC outfitted with glowing lights and neon won't make
    someone a better Counter-Strike player, but people still spend beaucoup bucks
    on such accoutrements as if it would.
