Ten Ton Hammer

  • There is a serious Pirate fetish going on in our industry right now. Am I disapointed? Not really. I have a slight Pirate thing going on myself. However, enough is a enough! Square didn't think so because TA DA! New jobs introduced with the Treasures of Aht Urhgan expansion disc - Corsairs!

    The valiant corsairs were once the scourge of the Near Eastern seas. Attired in a dignified frac and tricorne, and wielding the distinctive six-barreled weapon known as a "hexagun," any descendant of the legendary pirates is an impressive sight. Despite the positive whisperings of the corsairs’ actions and ideals in the streets of Al Zahbi, the Imperial Army seeks the corsairs' arrest on charges of insurrection. What tragic events lie in their past? And what secrets hide within the lighthearted games they play?

  • For some reason I've woken up with disco music playing in my head. It's a pretty far leap from what I usually listen to. Why am I telling you this? Because as I read this new Priest Archetype Preview for Age of Conan, I have KC and the Sunshine band running through my brain. Someone.. make the pain stop!

    Priests in Age of Conan are a step beyond the stereotype of a vulnerable healer - they can call forth the power of their deities to smite and expose their enemies whilst protecting and aiding their allies! Whilst the priest is certainly the cornerstone of a good team in that they provide the vital restoration skills required to keep their allies standing in battle, they are so much more than that as well.

    Priests draw on the strength of their faith and their abilities are derived from the power of their respective deities. Each god provides unique aspects to their followers, from the lethal poisons of the snake god Set to the elemental powers of nature itself harnessed by the Stormcaller.

    On a better note, I just got Ten Ton Hammer's E3 appointment set up. Are you excited? I sure as heck am!

  • MMORPG.com has a 9 Dragons Developer Diary up. There's a little Kung Fu fighting, a little butt kicking and alot of a good information here.

    There are generally lots of monsters wandering around and these can give adventurers a hard time on their own. But 9Dragons is special because there are also five clans of monsters with special powers of their own. They have their own unique background histories just like the Shao-Lin and the Wu-Tang!

    There are five major monster clans in 9Dragons. They are the Clan of Secret Shadows, the Clan of Death Valley, the Clan of the King of Hell, the Clan of Beasts, and the Clan of the Golden War.

    There is too much to say about these clans to fit it all in to one article so I have broken this up into two pieces. In the first I shall deal with the Clan of Secret Shadows and the Clan of Death Valley.

    Can Acclaim bust into the genre with this game and overset it's previous difficulties? Only time will tell.

  • The Easter Bunny will never survive this post apocalyptic nuke. I see fur and feet flying everwhere. On the other hand.. think of all of the luck we'll have with those severed bunny toes.

    Citizens of Novus Prepare for the Easter Invasion!
    Beginning on Good Friday and building up to what will be one of the biggest battles seen in any MMORPG to date; involving hundreds of monsters in full out war, the planet Novus will be invaded and only you can help! Will you heed the call? It’s time to declare your allegiance in the planets last stand…

    Friday 14th – A siege on the HQs from the Bulky Lunkers. Usually based in the Sette Dessert the Lunkers have gone crazy and started attacking the Faction HQ’s, no one knows why or how they got there but why miss an opportunity for some profitable hunting!

    Saturday 15th – On closer inspection the Crag mine control centre is attracting a lot of strange activity, is this just a random occurrence, or is there more to this? Can these creatures be destroyed? It’s up to you to investigate and report to your race leader.

    Sunday 16th – Sette Invasion - Can all 3 Factions put aside their differences as the strange creatures seize control of Sette and make their last stand. The Cora, Accretia and Bellato will need to fight back against this invasion to ensure the survival of Novus. Are reports of a weird presence in the Sette temple correct?

    For those lucky few to make it through the chaotic struggle a reward will be granted for your valour in combat.

    More details are on the RF Online Official Site.
