    MMOG Quote of the Day: AE - "short for “area effect”. Spell guaranteed to attract ravenous, blood thirsting mobs from every point on the compass faster than the All You Can Eat Buffet at an Anna Nicole Smith look-a-like contest. Usually the spell that a mage casts, before running in circles yelling, "Get them off me! Get them off me!", and commenting on the poor playing ability of the other players in the group to hold aggro.
    Also, the mesmerizing ability of naked female characters being played by men to draw a crowd of gawking onlookers. " - Boomjack

  • Hands Off My Car
    has a preview of one of the most anticipated titles of 2006, Auto

    Auto Assault is cruising toward completion, and we've checked out the latest
    developments in this high-speed online role-playing game.

    Even though it's still in its lengthy beta-testing phase, Auto Assault is
    making great strides as it races to launch next year. This online role-playing
    game from NCSoft and developer NetDevil promises to be one of the fastest
    games you'll play in 2006, thanks to the fact that you'll spend large portions
    of the game speeding around a wasteland in a combat vehicle, blasting everything
    that moves. Forget about the chain mail armor and the two-handed sword, because
    this online RPG is all about big guns and tricked-out rides. We recently got
    an updated look at the many new improvements that have been made in Auto Assault
    since we last saw it earlier this summer.

  • Adventure Starts Here
    has some Official Exclusive Lore for RF Online.

    Chapter 5 : Novus, the new hope

    Doctor Dohyun and his companions escaped the Lablum sector before its annihilation,
    beginning their voyage to nowhere. The search was for any inhabited galaxy
    containing human life. Messages were transmitted into the ether, only to be
    met with the silence of empty planets and the cold of space. Their journey,
    it would seem, would be a long and arduous one and with that prospect, the
    team continued on with their research into the Holy Mental.
    Slowly over time, members of the research team and survivors of the disaster,
    began to die through natural causes. Time had slipped by for these last members
    of the Arcane Club, but Dohyun’s hope and belief of finding traces of
    humans kept him alive. Even after 30 years, his heart drove his passion for
    survival. With all but three members of the team now remaining, it was with
    huge excitement and relief when they discovered a planet, thriving with sentient
    life and human activity within the Novus sector.

    creation process, new features in the public Beta, the crafting, the weapons,
    the cars, and the oh-so-much-fun mindless destruction. Enjoy!

  • Can you hear me grumbling in Colorado? Well you should, because I am! The Matrix Online topped my biggest disapointments list ever this year. It was cool in relation to avatars and clothes and junk.. BUT C'MON! If I wanted to play City of Heroes.. I'd be playing City of Heroes!

    I digress..There's a brand spankin new Designer Journal on Data Node One - The offical website.

    I’m pleased to say that the team has been making great progress. We’ve had a busy month working on game improvements including the SOE mail system and the first phase of the content revamp. And now, as we head into the last month of 2005, our hard work on the combat revision is paying off. The main focus of today’s journal is to explain the first part of the combat revision and I think you will love the changes.

  • Here's the weekly bucket of goodness for all of you DAOC fans out there. Mythic has released Pat 1.81e.

    Darkness Falls access change is the big news this edition. There's also a cool new recall stone system for those who own the Darkness Rising expansion. We may reevaluate that limit in the months to come, but for now it's like the advanced horses - a great reason to get Darkness Rising. Come for the recall stones and horses, stay for the quests and cake.

  • Today, the official site is promoting a new Weapons Tool that gives information on all of the weapons in game.

    Need a bit more information on weapons?

    Thanks to the guys over at the ever popular RFO community site //RFO.Asterix// comes a great little tool to help you in your weapon selection. By clicking on a particular weapon, you can see what potential that weapon has with additional talics. There may be a slight problem for IE users which I believe is being looked at.

    Big thanks to SpongeX and Xanavi for their work on this and the rest of the database.

    You can find the tool Here on the new non-harsh looking RF Online Forums.
