  • Exploring Middle-earth: The House of Elrond

    The official site for Lord of the Rings Online has been updated with another in the Exploring Middle-earth series.

    In the protected Valley of Rivendell, near the western slopes of the Misty Mountains stands the legendary House of Elrond, home to generations of noble Elves and a refuge for certain weary travelers in these dark days. Often called "The Last Homely House," this large and beautiful dwelling has been a tranquil yet well-protected and strongly-guarded refuge for as long as most memories can recall. Indeed, the Valley of Rivendell has been the home to Elrond and his people since well before the beginning of the Third Age, more than 3,000 years past.

  • Vanguard Saga of Heroes - First Impressions

    Gamepyre.com has posted their thoughts so far on Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.

    This game had been generating quite a bit of buzz around it prior to the release, so I was interested to check it out. I must say, that I am not disappointed so far. It seems as if they have looked at all the other MMOs on the market, and found out what players like and dislike, and then kept that in mind when designing the game.

  • Interview with Dan Elggren on "Stargate Worlds"

    The Game Musketeers updated their site with an interview with Dan Elggren. Keep reading to find out what they were able to learn.

    With the stringent standards and criticisms a TV show to MMOG conversion will face, how has the development team persevered?

    Right now, we’re really too busy with development to worry about what people might say down the road. Having said that, getting things right is very important to us. We’ve got more than 200 episodes of the original Stargate SG-1 and three seasons of Stargate Atlantis to draw on, and we are utilizing this fantastic resource to guide every step we take.

  • Acclaim Games Announces Open Beta and New European Service for 9Dragons MMORPG

    A press release was issued today to announce the beginning of Open Beta for the upcoming 9Dragons.

    Players have the option of joining one of 6 starter clans: Shaolin, Wu-Tang Clan and The League of Beggars which are loyal to The Imperial Emperor of China, while The Brotherhood of Thieves, Heavenly Demon, and Sacred Flower Clan (for women only), are opposed to his rule. Three special advanced clans, which will be fully controlled by players in respect to leadership and alignment, will be added to the game as the story progresses. Since each free account allows up to 3 character slots, it’s easy to create multiple characters, join different clans, and experience new gaming experiences based on each clan’s different Kung Fu style and unique philosophy.

    SoE has surprised me... in a good way. If I didn't read it myself, after being poked that direction by an article by our very own Tony Jones, I wouldn't believe that SoE has released a white paper on Station Exchange. Station Exchange is SoE's in-house secondary market transaction system. With Exchange, SoE has built a mechanism to take the gold farmer's work and make a profit from it.
    Here are the highlights:

    • $1.87 million US worth of transactions were handled last year.
    • One piece of platinum trades for $7.35 when averaged for the year.
    • 34-year-olds spent the most, accounting for $39,000
    • A high level character in EQ2 is worth as much as $2,000
    • A single seller made $37,435 from 351 auctions in the first year.
    • SoE made $274, 083 in revenue in the first year.
    • Of the 40,663 players who play on the servers, only 9,042 have registered for exchange.
    • The average Station Exchange buyer is 32 years old.
    • The average EQ2 player is 25 years old.
    • 35-42 hours of play per week translate to between $200 and $500 per month in profit.

    What did SoE have to say? Seven new MMOG articles including a guide to Vanguard mounts and so much more is but a click away.
