    People's Daily Online reports that Vietnam will aggressively develop up video games, including more than a handful of localized MMORPGs in the coming years. If they can do it, market share shouldn't be a problem. Everyone knows you'd best avoid an economic war in southeast Asia.

    "We hope that each of the 83 companies has at least one game widely circulated in the domestic market. If this is achieved, they can make combined game revenues of 83 million U.S. dollars in 2010," said Truong Hoai Trang, vice chairman of the Vietnam Software Association (Vinasa).

  • Codemasters has taken a heavy handed stance with RMT companies and people who use this mode of gameplay. Real Money Trading will not be sanctioned nor tolerated in this one so if you feel the need to deal in it, I'd advise picking another game.

    As you know, Ten Ton Hammer took the stance in January that we would no longer sell adspace to gold traders or any secondary market company. So, with that said, we applaud Codemasters for standing by their policy.

    Greetings, Citizens of Novus.

    Today, following a brief investigation which began on a tip from an anonymous Bellato from spirit server, we have suspended over 170 accounts involved in a major RMT operation.

    I would like to make it clear that a number of our investigations come from the valuable contributions you the players make, who spend enough time in Novus to recognize the patterns normally associated with these groups. Your help is invaluable, and we thank you.

    Please remember to report suspicious activities at:

  • Hunters of Undead in DDO

    Aelasyl brings the Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach - TenTonHammer faithful a Custom Build straight from Eberron lore: the Aereni Deathguard. If you're a hardcore Eberron fan excited about Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach (DDO), this could be the build for you. Heck, the Deathguard is fun to play even if DDO is your first visit to Eberron!

    While the elves of Aerenal venerate their undying ancestors, they despise all negatively charged undead. These foul creatures that defile the world are shades of what they used to be. The Deathguard actively hunt down and exterminate negatively charged undead. This character combines the holy righteousness of a Paladin 4 with the skilled stalking abilities of the Ranger 6.

    Learn how to build the Aereni Deathguard class at DDO - TenTonHammer today!

  • An Auto Assault test drive... weighs in on Auto Assault with a "first glimpse" of the MMO that's making our imaginations run wild during the morning commute to work.

    Is the game perfect? No. There are still bugs-a-plenty, including with NPCs and missions, but NetDevil is working hard on fixing them. The clan interface can still use some work, and NetDevil has already said they plan on adding in at least a mail system, and other tools to help player merchants sell their goods. There is housing in the game - which you get via a mission. The graphics in the "pedestrian" city are good, though the animations on the players is a bit stiff - but that's not the focus of the game. The missions, on the other hand, often have GREAT storylines and funny lines - it's great to read them a lot of the time. Some can be funny, others touching, while still others disturbing.
