  • Are you looking for the skinny on one of our favorites games Gods and Heroes? Luckily they've started really amping up on the interviews and such. It's a good time for those of us who are enamored of this sweet sweet game. This time around you can find your information at MMOZ where they have an interview with Stieg Hedlund.

    MMOz: How does travel across the world work? If there is fast travel, are all travel points accessible from the beginning or do players need to explore and discover map locations before they can use fast travel?

    Stieg Hedlund: You can walk across the world, but that can get pretty old, so we definitely are deploying fast travel alternatives to get you where you’re going quickly. On the access to fast travel: yep—discover the travel terminal and you get to use it!

    You can read the rest here.

  • If you are American you are likely preparing for Memorial Day, which is the yearly migration of Americans north to Canada. Our illegal immigrant problem skyrockets this weekend as countless thousands of Americans cross the border with no intention of ever going back. I do happen to be looking for a gardener, so if any of you are heading up the 401 from Toronto to Ottawa feel free to drop off a resume, in Canadian English please...find the "u" on your keyboard and use it.

    If you frequent our network then you are aware that we tell it like we see it. Our honesty and our opinion sometimes gets us in disfavor with developers and publishers. It's a curious conundrum. We rely on developers and publishers to bestow exclusive content on our network and they in turn rely on us to give their titles exposure. It's a lot like getting a loan from a bank. You go in and ask for a loan. They immediately ask you if you have any money as collateral. The answer of course is, "No", because if you had the money you wouldn't be at the bank asking for it now would you?
    Oh, there's more, including 8 new MMOG articles, Vin Diesel and even some educational material regarding gold farmers.

  • In the epic war between Heroes and Villains, this is essential reading...

    CuppaJo brings us this great article with tips and strategy for tonight's event on the test server for City of Heroes and City of Villains! It's written by their very own Thomas Foss, Chief World Builder, Senior Staff Designer, and Zone Director.

    Recluse’s Victory is much more of an Epic war zone than a PVP arena. With this in mind, you need to think more like a player on a larger battlefield, and less like someone street sweeping other players. This is an area where Supergroups will be able to really show their teamwork abilities and gain prestige in the presence of their piers;
    Solo players can be of special importance making sure that flanks are secure, scouting sectors and infiltration behind enemy lines. Support players can speed up recoveries to players as they emerge from the hospital reclamators, getting more boots on the ground faster.

    Sounds pretty intense. Better review strategies for the battlefield and arsenal at your disposal (robots and turrets!) -- prepare yourself for Recluse's Onslaught at NC Soft - TenTonHammer.

  • Bringing ruin to the ruins.

    WoW @ Ten Ton Hammer's Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj guide continues to expand today with a guide to defeating Ayamiss the Hunter.

    Ayamiss is the fifth boss in World of Warcraft's Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj (AQ20) and is a large flying insect similar to the many you have already encountered, except much larger. It is an interesting fight as you can not conventionally tank him while he is flying for the first half of the fight. Once on the ground though the fight is fairly standard.

    Check out the complete guide here: WoW @ TenTonHammer's Guide to the Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj.

  • A cure for altism

    Do you suffer from a growing need to create character after character? Have you purchased a second account just to get more character slots? Does your guild see a new character and automatically assume that it's one of your alts? If you show these, and other behaviors, you could have an alt addiction.

    Hello, I'm Savanja and I suffer from an alt addiction. It started out innocently enough,
    I played a half elf Shadow Knight at release, and I grew a little bored in my mid 20's. I had a
    craving. A strong craving to do something new, but I didn't know what. Out of this boredom, a
    human Mystic was born, and things were good for a while, I felt satisfied, but then the inevitable
    happened, and I felt that longing once again to try something new and exciting.

    Know that you are not alone. Savanja steps into the light, and out of the closet of shame, in this eye opening and stunning confessions of an altaholic.

  • A Guide to WoW's Tirisfal Glades, Levels 1-10

    With their ghastly character model features and creepy starting zone, we figured we should do everything possible to make starting out as one of World of Warcraft's Undead as fright-free as possible. TenTonHammer provides everything you need to get from level 1 to 10 in Tirisfal Glades as quickly and painlessly as possible, including lore, a map, a region walkthrough featuring details on 35 quests, and links to additional resources. With this guide, "you" are all that's needed to put the "fun" in "Forsaken" (har har ::jaw falls off::).

    "All Forsaken begin their un-lives in Tirisfal Glades, and you'll quickly find out that no race is more isolated than the Forsaken. Fighting not only against the Alliance forces but also the Undead Scourge held in ghastly thrall by the Lich King, few among even their allies in the Horde ranks would deem them trustworthy. Their presence is an aberration against nature, and their core motivations under the demon lord Verimathras are cloudy at best. Despite all the distrust, you'll note that many of the Forsaken simply wish to carry on their lives as before the Plague came; as you journey through Tirisfal Glades you'll see the twisted trappings of a humdrum existance. Apart from a few morbidly ambitious apothecaries, the Forsaken stance is predominantly defensive. "

    Check out the WoW @ Ten Ton Hammer First 10 Levels in Tirisfal Glade guide, and give your corpse a new lease on life.

  • Now we're talkin! Somewhere in the works I became a crafting nut and so anything with this topic gets me all warm and fuzzy inside. Turbine's Nik Davidson tells gives us the juice.

    You've probably heard the joke about how games are like sausage: Best to just enjoy them and not think too hard about how they're made. For those like me, there is no sparing us the greasy intestinal details of design and production. We live it and love it. And like it or not, I'm going to share a bit of it with you. I'm going to tell you a story. A story about a boy, a coffee machine, and a dream. A story about the crafting system in The Lord of the Rings Online™: Shadows of Angmar™.

    Before I launch into the explanation of our crafting system, I'll share this with you: At a certain point in the game's development, crafting was almost cut.
