Featured Article: Dungeons & Dragons Online - The Monk and More

Recently, Codemasters held their Connect -08 event where they had a chance to show off a number of the games which they publish. While the big news out of the event was the Lord of the Rings Online expansion, each of their other games got some love from our own Donna Desborough, including Dungeons and Dragons Online.

It seems that monks will be added to the game in the upcoming Module 7 update. Here's an example of what Desborough had to say:

  • The Monk will mostly be a hand to hand combat character with proficiencies in quarter staff and exotic weapons, such as the shuriken.
  • Some other good news is that Turbine may be having a serious look at guild housing next year.
  • It has been said that crafting will be worked on all year. No details beyond that have been given unfortunately.
  • You can read the the full article here.

On-Site: Stargate Worlds Podcast Interview

Last month while at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco we were involved in a comedy of errors, as fate was determined to prevent us from interviewing the folks behind Stargate Worlds. We're happy to say that the curse of Stargate has now been broken, and as promised we have a new interview for your listening pleasure. This time Jon Wood sits down with CME Studio Head Dan Elggren, Creative Director Chris Klug, Technology Director Demetrius Comes, and Art Director Howard Lyon where they discuss some of the worlds of Stargate Worlds, how the game integrates with the television series, take a first look at the game's factions, and more.

This week's Game of the Week is EA Mythic's Warhammer Online. It grabs the crown this week for a number of reasons.
