Age of Conan : Correspondent - The PvP System

Posted Jul 31, 2008 by Jon Wood Age of Conan Correspondent Chris Carlis files this report on the upcoming PvP system for Age of Conan.

When we all saw the videos for Age of Conan, we were all motivated by the decapitations and fatalities that we saw. Then we saw all of the different siege warfare scenes that really got our blood flowing. And I know I’m not alone when I say that I was hell of excited about it. Age of Conan promised us lots of blood, gore and an active, fun playing system. Well it delivered most of all of it. Currently there are still some problems with the siege system, and there are some small imbalances in the classes. But in the coming weeks and months we expect to see huge game improvements including the PvP levels being enabled and the murder system. In this article I will briefly go over these new enhancements and what I think that they mean to players.

First, we will be covering the new PvP system. This is a system that was active in beta, but was not turned on when the game was released. Since then, the players have been begging and pleading with the developers to turn it on to give us some sort of content besides raiding at the end game and now, it seems like these changes are finally coming.

Mabinogi : Spirit Weapons and New Pets

Posted Jul 30, 2008 by Keith Cross

Nexon has announced the addition of the Spirit Weapon System and several new pets to Mabinogi.

Los Angeles, CA – July 25, 2008 – Nexon America Inc. is adding some spirit to Mabinogi, the sensational free-to-play MMORPG, with the new Spirit Weapon system, as well as a variety of new and helpful pets. These new options enhance the already exceptionally deep game play found within Mabinogi.

The Spirit Weapon system offers players a more powerful weapon, but also requires some TLC. These weapons host a spirit, which requires conversation, food and guidance. As players chat, feed and guide the spirit, it grows stronger. Increasing the spirit’s in-game stats, helps players attack with this weapon and do more damage to foes.

Mabinogi welcomes seven new pets to its world – a cow, white sheep, white flame spider, herb pig and three new dogs, Border Collies, Miniature Pinschers and Samoyeds. The new pets can collect and offer items to assist owners. Cows can acquire milk and sheep can gather wool to assist the owner. With a little work, spiders can assist with the collection of cobwebs and herb pigs can offer herbs. The new dog breeds possess an auto item pick-up function, which means these pups fetch dropped items.

There are other additions to Mabinogi this month. The new Peaca Dungeon is the most challenging yet and will require players to find monsters’ weaknesses to survive. There are also new books to read and skills to learn. Players will have new arrow tips and bolt tips available for battle. And with five more hair colors and three more eye colors available through the purchase of a premium character card, players enjoy enhanced customization features for avatars.

Tabula Rasa : Operation Immortality

Posted Jul 30, 2008 by Keith Cross

NCsoft has announced Operation Immortality, where gamers and fans of space exploration can have the chance to get their DNA digitized and launched into space with Richard Garriott when he visits the International Space Station in October. 

AUSTIN, July 30, 2008—Could you be the savior of humankind? NCsoft®, the world’s leading publisher and developer of online computer games, has announced it will launch the “Immortality Drive” – a time capsule with the digitized DNA of select video game players and space aficionados – into orbit when famed game designer Richard Garriott travels to the International Space Station in October 2008.

As part of NCsoft’s “Operation Immortality,” Richard Garriott – the man who created Tabula Rasa, a massively multiplayer online (MMO) PC game that explores the destruction of Earth – is now venturing into space to save humanity.

During the campaign, Tabula Rasa players have a chance to have their DNA sequenced, digitized and sent into space on the Immortality Drive. In addition, all players with active accounts on September 2, 2008 will have their Tabula Rasa characters uploaded to the device, giving them the opportunity to go to space virtually. In order to make this unique opportunity accessible to as many people as possible, free trials of the game are available at Garriott will place the Immortality Drive on the International Space Station when he travels there this fall.

“I’ve been able to do some very exciting things in the games business, but nothing of this magnitude,” said Garriott, executive producer for Tabula Rasa at NCsoft. “I’m thrilled we can offer the once in a lifetime chance to millions of gamers to virtually go to space with me. A select few will have their DNA digitized and sent. And, theoretically, if anything happens to the human race, it could be their DNA that is used to resurrect humanity.”

Starting today and lasting through August 31, 2008, anyone with a PC and an Internet connection can go to and participate in weekly polls on humanity’s greatest achievements which will be included on the Immortality Drive, such as “What is the greatest song of all time?” and “What is the greatest technological breakthrough of all time?” Current Tabula Rasa players, or those who download and play the free trial, will also be able to enter a personal message for inclusion on the Drive.

Lord of the Rings Online : Correspondent - Moving into the Mines

Posted Jul 30, 2008 by Jon Wood Lord of the Rings Online Correspondent Matt McLean files this report on the upcoming expansion for the game, the Mines of Moria and discusses whether or not the new addition will be worth the box price.

Ever since its release nearly 16 months ago, The Lord of the Rings Online (LotRO) has been one of the best MMORPGs on the market. It combines fluid gameplay with realistic graphics in one of the most recognizable fantasy atmospheres of all time. Their first “volume”, The Shadows of Angmar, allowed players to explore Eriador in all of its grandeur and frightening splendor. And now, coming this fall, Volume II of the story unfolds as the retail expansion, The Mines of Moria, will be released.

The developers at Turbine Studios, the group behind LotRO, know that without its players, there is no game. So periodically throughout the life of the game so far, the player-base has been given what the developers called “epic book” releases. These releases are fairly large in nature, and usually occur every few months. They have almost always added new areas of the map to explore, and allow the developers to introduce new characters, weapons, gear, and quests. It’s also a great way to make improvements within the game, like the ability to scale the UI, adding in and changing the existing graphic content and so on.

Champions Online : Ask Cryptic

Posted Jul 29, 2008 by Keith Cross

Cryptic Studios has published another edition of Ask Cryptic, where they answer questions about their upcoming superhero action MMO, Champions Online.

We've got some more Champions Online info for you, with answers about player mods, Xbox 360, the world of Champions Online, blocking, non-combat activities and knockback. Thanks very much to Jackalope, poz, Arkayne, Heretic and Absinthe for their answers!

There have been many mentions of tools being developed for player use, in terms of modding and creating content. Though player-generated content may not be viable on release, would it be reasonable to expect the players to submit content to Champions Online in the future, or an expansion? (Kalt)

Jackalope (Chief Creative Officer): Cryptic certainly believes that there's no better place to find creativity than the players themselves. And we do believe that user generated content is an important part of our future games. As time passes and our features become set, we'll certainly be introducing them to Champions Online players. While at the moment, Champions Online scratches the surface with the Nemesis system, costume creation, power selection and power customization, look to see us continue to open the door for more player-generated material.

EverQuest II : A Norrathian Demise

Posted Jul 29, 2008 by Keith Cross

The folks at EverQuest II have published an FAQ about character death in EverQuest II.

Though we go out into the world equipped with armor, spells and weapons, even the best of us will be smitten by a force more powerful than us on occasion. When this happens, there are a couple of options to bring your character back to life, depending on the situation. Below are some Frequently Asked Questions about character deaths.

Uh oh! My character died. Now what?

Upon the death of your character, you have a choice: remain in your body and wait to be resurrected by another player who has that ability, or revive yourself. If you are resurrected, your body will come back to life at the site of your death. If you revive, you will appear (with all your items) at a nearby explorer camp, graveyard, or at the nearest safe spot if you are in a dungeon or instanced zone.

ArchLord : Episode 3: Spirits Awakening

Posted Jul 29, 2008 by Keith Cross

The folks at Archlord have prepared new information about Episode 3: Spirits Awakening, which reveals Spirit Realms hidden from mortal sight, along with a wide array of new skills, new armor sets, and more.

Chantra is made up of more than just the visible realm; there are many realms that create the whole world. Mortals like the Humans, Orcs and Moon Elves, inhabit the Material Realm and are ruled over by the ArchLord; a mighty being who has risen above the other mortals to command the world of Chantra.

Hidden away out of sight from mortals are the Spirit Realms, coming from these realms is the magic that permeates the world of Chantra. These are divided into two kinds, higher and lower, the first to be formed were the Higher Spirit Realms and then came the Lower Spirit Realms and the Material Realm.

It is the combination of the Material Realm and these Spirit Realms that make up the world of Chantra, all are connected, all are needed and all are dangerous vibrant places where adventure can be found.

Blizz – Ice Spirit Realm

Created to combat the effects of the Fire Spirit Realm, it draws on the power of the Earth Spirit Realm and the Water Spirit Realm, working to contain the immense power of the Fire Spirit Realm.

Thunder – Lightning Spirit Realm

Unlike Blizz, Thunder was created as a release for the overwhelming spirit powers found in all of the Higher Spirit Realms. This has led to many dangerous environmental hazards through out the realm, where the power of the Higher Spirit Realms is unleashed in the form on lightning.

Venom – Poison Spirit Realm

Venom was the last of the Spirit Realms to appear and is unique amongst them in that it was the only one that was created after the Material Realm. Created to remove the harmful effects of poison and negative substances from the Material Realm, it is the only Spirit Realm that has no impact on the Higher Spirit Realms.

Episode 3 Contents

Details of the specific contents will follow closer to the launch of the expansion; it will however include the following.

•    Four brand new sets of armour with unique stats
•    88 new skills spread across all the classes
•    11 new ArchLord specific skills
•    An array of new items and changes to existing items

Episode 3: Spirits Awakening is expected to go live during August.
