  • More good news! Our EVE Online site is open again, thanks to Phil's mad piloting skills. I would like to personally welcome Valerie Massey (formerly of NCSoft) back into the fray as the new EVE Online community representative. It's good to have you back Val.
    Some games attempt to make their mark based on the gameplay. World of Warcraft and EVE Online are great examples of this. How many of you can name two or more developers of those games? For a game that has yet to be released it is even more challenging to get the attention of the public. Games in development require hype to attract the eyes of the MMOG masses. Most companies showcase the game itself, giving you tasty little morsels of what is to come. StarGate Worlds, Age of Conan, Lord of the Rings Online, Pirates of the Burning Sea and Chronicles of Spellborn are excellent examples of companies putting the game first.
    Other companies prefer to highlight the pedigree of the developers. Some of them give their management team titles like Assistant Manager or "Ass Man" for short. Others have developers who like to stir up the pot, dropping into sites like the super villain "The Penguin" on an uber-hovering umbrella screaming "Waaah...waaah...nyargh..waaaaah...." at the masses who vocally abuse them at every opportunity.
    12 new MMOG articles, Penguin super villain chat, British cocks and more is but a click away. Loading... August 31, 2006 [Waah...Waaah Edition]

  • Presenting the New and Improved Antonica Guide

    Good ole Antonica! Whether you are new to the game and need a little bit of guidance, or you have rolled alt #46892386 and need a refresher course, this great guide (originally written by Ethec) has gotten some updating to keep up with the times.

    Ah, Antonica. A Qeynos citizen's first taste of big-time adventuring, though there's plenty for the far-traveling Freeport citizen to do here as well. A region of the Shattered Lands relatively unscathed by the fractile moon, though that didn't stop the gnolls in the surrounding area from besieging Qeynos in the aftermath. The gnolls have a cavernous stronghold not far from Qeynos' North Gates along the Antonican Road, though their expansive lair, Blackburrow is found in the far sou'-mideast. At night, the Timberclaw gnolls vie for Archer's Woods adjacent to the Claymore Monument; which itself is watched over by a defensive line of watchtowers. Farther southwest is a lighthouse, whose vigilance safeguards ships rounding Coldwind Point.

  • As I wandered the gaming exhibition area of the Penny Arcade Expo, I wondered what exactly people would want to know about Lord of the Rings Online. There has been a flood of information released by Turbine in the past weeks and most of the games major systems have been talked about. The systems we don’t know about were not going to be shown at PAX. What is a reporter to do? It is not easy for me to place myself in the position of an unknowing fan because I actually receive a bit more information about the game. That’s right, I know stuff. The desire to share all I know is very great. Unfortunately, I am limited to telling you about what I saw or could have seen at PAX. This may sound very restrictive, but there are so many small details that are to be learned. I will try to touch on and grade a few major areas of the game. These grades are based only on the current version that was on display at PAX.
