  • The gaming world has been buzzing with rumors about what the big announcement concerning Star Wars Galaxies was going to be this year. If the mini-sized SWG poster we received in our swag bags was to be any indication, the dead may soon start fighting among the living. It turned out not to have anything to do with zombies but it is big! The news involves a new profession and the sweet sensation of player created content.

    Ten Ton Hammer: Perfect World International is currently up to 1.5 million registered users. Why do you think the game has seen such success in the North American market? Jon Beliss: I think there's a variety of reasons why Perfect World International is doing as well as it is in the North American market. The obvious answer is we pay a lot of attention to our users, customer service, quality of service, and that kind of thing. But you know, that's something should be expected from every publisher, really. In terms of the game itself, we spend a lot of time localizing the game, not only in terms of text in quests and what people say to one another, but also in terms of the game content itself, localizing the gameplay and game content for North American users.

  • One year ago today, Warhammer Online went live and the world of PvP hasn't been the same since. Mythic had been the granddaddy of Realm versus Realm combat for years, but even they had a few missteps along the way with Warhammer's release. Ten Ton Hammer recently had the chance to sit down with Producer, Josh Drescher, and what an interesting interview it was. In a unique twist in the interview world, Josh stepped up to the plate and didn't beat around the bush with any answer. Whether you're a current player, one that has been gone from the game for a time, or someone that is hoping to hop into the frenetic, fast-paced, and brutal in-your-face combat that Warhammer revels in, you owe it to yourself to read this refreshingly straightforward, push-off-no-blame interview.

    Ten Ton Hammer: The experience and renown curve has varied since the launch of Warhammer Online in terms of open-world RvR, scenario RvR, PvE, etc. Are those kinds of adjustments still in the game, or were they just temporary until something settled out? Josh: Those things are areas that we're always looking at in terms of internal metrics, trying to find areas where we feel like, particularly the experience leveling curve, either tapers off or it drags too much. The polite thing that you were tiptoeing around, and I'll just say it explicitly, Tier 3 dragged like crazy and was terrible.

  • Gamers have been clamoring for a company to step up and deliver something truly epic for as long as anyone can remember. If all goes according to plan, BioWare will do just that with their upcoming release of Dragon Age: Origins. Packed with intense violence, a gritty world, and some "wardrobe malfunctions" of its own, it's destined for a Mature rating. Will that have any effect on potential sales? Join Dalmarus as he gives his own thoughts on this controversial subject.

    If you took little more than a perfunctory glance at the warning label, the argument could be made that it could prove disastrous for both developer and publisher alike. The reasons listed for the game’s mature rating are "Blood, Intense Violence, Language, Partial Nudity, and Sexual Content". This list alone has the volatile potential of a nuclear bomb to send parents and moral conservatives into fits of instant hysteria.

  • The release date of BioWare's Dragon Age: Origins is just over a month away and gamers around the globe can't wait. Whether you're itching to play it on a PC or console (PS3 owners will have to wait a couple of extra weeks), one thing is for certain. The class you choose will play an important role in how you view yourself within the world of Thedas. As you level your character up, you'll have the opportunity to unlock specializations within your chosen class which will in turn open up even more abilities. Not all the details we would want to know have been released yet, but here's what we know so far.

    Templars are the feared servants of the Chantry, charged with controlling magic and its use. While many view them as the most pious of warriors, the Chantry chooses candidates more for their skill in battle and unwavering loyalty than the strength of their moral core. Driven by their religious fervor, they are incredibly focused warriors.

  • Dungeons and Dragons Online went to a free to play model earlier this month, re-titling itself as Dungeons & Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited and if the crowds of players are any indication, the move was a good one. One of the more interesting aspects of this new DDO version are the two classes available for purchase, the Favored Soul and the Monk. See what has Dalmarus so excited about them both.

    Blending equal parts melee and spell chucking, the Divine Avenger lives up to their namesake in the throes of battle. One second they're bashing in the skull of a raging ogre and the next, they're saving the hide of an overly frisky wizard with a well-timed heal.

  • October 22, 2009 is almost here and with it, the official release of Windows 7. Gamers are a tight knit community that always makes their voices heard when it comes to their computing needs. With the pain and suffering inflicted by Vista fresh in the minds of millions, Microsoft needs to hit a home run to have any chance of winning those hearts back.

    This time, the heavens will part, the angels will sing, and the world will be comforted in an eternal blanket of peace. All right. Maybe the release of Windows 7 shouldn't *quite* be hailed as the second coming, but gamers around the globe should rejoice nonetheless and I'm here to tell you why.
