  • MMORPG.com has an interview with Legend of Ares lead designer June Lee.

    MMORPG.com: What sets this game apart from all of the other MMORPGs currently on the market?

    June Lee: One of the more unique qualities of the Legend of Ares is the warfare system. While there will still be the normal PvP encounters between players of opposing nations, there will also be a territorial warfare system implemented where players can participate to increase their nation’s size, honor, and abilities. Territorial wars will be organized events where players of both nations will have to sign up to participate. The ultimate goal of the T-wars is, as the name implies, to win areas of the map for each nation. Every area, once controlled, will bestow bonuses on the players of the winning side such as boosts to exp gain, money gain, attack power, and defensive ability. In addition to this, players of either side can also gain bonuses by increasing the number of enemies killed from their rival nation(honor points).

  • There are new screenshots for Vanguard at Vanguard Crafters.

    Someone mentioned on the other day that Vanguard was taking on a WoW'ish look. Methinks that they're blind. It still has that fantasy realistic look that the Sigil team is known for.

  • You heard us talk about them at GDC. If you didn't hear the excitement in our voices you weren't listening very well to the podcast or reading between the lines of our articles. We are really FREAKIN' excited about these Mayhem Missions. Now you can get the info from the horse's mouth. Read the details here.

    The count down begins, your heart is racing and your adrenaline spikes as you silently make your way into Statesman’s territory. You venture forth into the heart of the enemy’s domain, knowing that a hero could be around every turn as you unleash pure mayhem upon Paragon City. Whether you dare to go it alone or with a group of fellow villains, this could be the shining moment in which you let loose the villain within.

    Time is short and tensions are running high, you set off at a hectic pace, destroying all that comes before you with wild abandon. Buying yourself more time by decimating everything in your path, you fight your way across town to your target in order to grab the loot before time runs out!

    Whoah Nelly! They're really this exciting.

  • So I've been sitting here at my desk this morning for an hour looking for news. Unfortunately I'm the type of person that starts reading the news that interests me and I get so involved I lose track of time. So.. there you go. An hour with one news post. I need to quit reading about PA and start reading about MMO stuff for the love of all that is cheesy.

    On a side note, leaving the TV on all night so that you're stuck on ABC in the morning rather than listening to your regular music live feed is never a good thing. Regis and Kelly - er.. not my favorite show. I'll never get this last hour of my life back.

    On another side note, wonder what kind of music that I listen to? I can assure you it's not Rap. I've been listen to KTCL in Denver Colorado since I was a pimply faced Sophmore. If you get a chance, listen to the live feed. It's a good station with good music. Oh God! The View is starting. I have change the channel before my ears start bleeding. Star Jones has manly hands.
