Ten Ton Hammer

  • Player on player violence: good, clean fun? We think so.

    They say its all fun and games until somebody loses an eye. In this case, its not really fun and games until somebody is laying face down in Antonica with you laughing while you loot their corpse. Aren't sure what the newly-added PvP server is like in EverQuest 2? RadarX shares his experiences and examines what differentiates this from the normal servers.

    After completing a few mundane tasks, I made my way to the Graveyard to gain a few levels. Of course too terrified to even peak out into the Commonlands, I had yet to see an enemy player, and was wrapping up a lengthy dialogue with a quest NPC. All of a sudden, time slowed down and my spider sense begin to warn me of impending danger. I leapt into action ready to unleash my skill....bah who am I kidding? I never even saw the guy coming. I was down on the ground in about a half second and didn't even have the heart to look at my parser. Ganked already by level 7!

    Gank the rest of the article at EverQuest 2 - TenTonHammer.

  • This just in... Warhammer Online is coming in 2007.

    “’WAR’ is coming!” proclaimed Mark Jacobs, President and CEO at Mythic Entertainment. “We’re well into our first year of intensive design and development on the game that we believe will usher in the next generation of truly great MMO’s. With our expertise in RvR and a rich fantasy setting that is in a perpetual state of conflict, ‘WAR’ promises to be a game unlike any other.”

    “The core concept behind ‘WAR’ is simple – war is everywhere,” explains Lance Robertson, Producer of “Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.” “This world, dominated by force of arms and magic, provides a wonderfully rich setting for an MMO. Our game will give player entrance into this world to experience the epic nature of war and the glory of battle. Every aspect of the game, including PvE content, is geared towards the greater war in some important way.”

    To learn more about “WAR,” visit the game’s newly redesigned website: www.warhammeronline.com. Sign up for the monthly newsletter to receive exclusive stories, art, and game information, as well as a chance to take part in the game’s beta test.

    It's really starting to look fantastic.

  • I'm a few days late on this one. It's hard to find the news area of their new website :) However.... The Gods and Heroes Official Forums has a short interview with Stieg Hedlund.

    Right now, what is your favorite part of Gods and Heroes?

    I really like the action combat. For example we've got a move called "the ladder" which involves jumping on the opponent's back and applying both a sleeper hold and a leg scissors until he passes out. It’s awesome both to see move from ancient pankration, a combination of boxing and wrestling, come to life in our game, as well as to see this type of intricate interaction in an MMO.
