Ten Ton Hammer

  • The Dwarves of Middle-earth

    If you're planning to play a sturdy and stalwart dwarf when Lord of the Rings: Shadows of Angmar launches later this year, then you'll want to check out our guide to the dwarf race.

    The dwarves of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth are beings of short stature and stocky build. Dwarf males always sport long beards. (Whether dwarf females always wear beards is a matter of some speculation and debate.) Dwarves mine precious metals throughout Middle-earth and are known as skilled stoneworkers and smiths. Their gruff appearance and demeanor belies their ability for superb craftsmanship.

    If you were around the site Thursday, you might have seen the screenshots we featured from the next free expansion to hit City of Heroes / City of Villains. To recap, two new zones will grace the Rogue Isles: Grandville, a "vertical" zone which houses Arachnos headquarters, and Recluse's Victory, a fully destructable PvP zone where Heroes and Villains will work out their differences!

    Today we feature the latest Issue 7 movie from Cryptic Studios.Check out the CoV Issue 7 video and more right here at TenTonHammer!

  • Welcome to the Tangle...

    We got fun and games! We got anything you want....umm.. how did these Guns n' Roses lyrics get in here? Anyways, the Tenerbrous Tangle is the starter zone for the Kingdom of Sky - the newest expansion to hit EverQuest 2 - and we've got the guide to help you make the most of your adventures in Tenebrous Tangle.

    Above the vast continents of Norrath, float lush green islands of immense beauty. From a distance they appear serene and peaceful, but are occupied by dangerous creatures of unspeakable evil. The Tenebrous Tangle zone is the lowest level zone within the Kingdom of Sky and is vastly different than anything you've ever experienced in Norrath.

    Get a detailed overview and eight incredible maps of here.

  • Devrek’s back this week with a surprise!

    A special surprise full of mystic wonder and enjoyment! Well, not really. It’s more of an Auto Assault newsletter he created to go along with his normal sketch. That’s right! A whole newsletter is included in this week’s Roadhouse Comedy Club. That’s like a bonus, except that it's all free-of-charge!

    Hey guys! Welcome back to the comedy club. Remember last time I said I was going to create a newsletter? Well I did it! I found someone to publish it and I have the first issue right here. I'll be handing them out at the end of today's skit. Don't worry though, there is plenty for everyone. They are digital so all you have to do is download them. I think. I don't really get technology.

    Motor on over to Auto Assault @ TenTonHammer for some laughs with Devrek!

  • I'm still laughing. I have tears I do. Developer Diary: Allan "Orion" Maki - Friends Don't Let Friends Tank Balrogs The name should speak volumes of the humor in this piece. However, that's not what started me laughing. It's the picture of Will with his cow bell smack at the top. You gotta love a man who appreciates the need for more cow bell.

    So you want to know something about The Lord of the Rings Online™: Shadows of Angmar™. Excellent! If only I could deliver all of the juicy information which you seek! How wondrous would the outpouring of gratitude be, and how greater still the rancor that followed, as shortcomings and disagreements were debated until the coming of the Last Battle!

    (Translation: before I was a developer, I was an MMO fan first, then an Online Community Rep. Be nice to Patience!)

    If I could do that I would, but I cannot. NobOrBob and his Balrog, Snuggles, keep our darkest secrets, er, secret. What I can do, however, is give you a glimpse of LOTRO from a great height, as if borne by a Great Eagle.

  • One should never pick on their boss. However, because I have no fear (due completely to insanity mind you) I cannot help myself.

    In regards to Loading... Boomjack REALLY likes the color orange. I can imagine how hard it was for him to change that little box to grey.

  • Gamecloud has an interview with brand manager Ken Chan While I read this interview I can't help but hum "Back in the saddle again".

    Gamecloud - Why was the decision made to make the new Acclaim a place to publish Asian themed multiplayer games in the US?

    Ken Chan - These games are enjoying hugre sucess in Asia right now. We wanted to bring them to the US market. We are not focusing on Asian themed games per se. The 9Dragons game we have planned is indeed an MMORPG based on Asian themes, however, that is the extent of our Asian themed games thus far.

    I hate to burst their new found bubble but eh.. Asian themed games aren't the most successful in the US right now.
