ZAM's TERA Online Site Live
2010/07/21 at 3:16 PM
I don't know how many of you follow other MMOs—I know that I can't imagine really playing more than one at a time. But there are two coming up in the near future that I'm actually really excited about—BioWare's
The Old Republic
TERA is exciting to me, partially because of the art style but mostly because of the gameplay. It's calling itself an "Action RPG", which in practical terms means that it deals with the most basic interface problem in all MMOs—the fact that most basic combat just involves standing still and deciding what order to push your buttons in. In TERA you actually have to
move out of the way
when people shoot at you. If you're firing a bow, you actually need to
your target. The combat has sort of a next-generation
Secret of Mana
feel to it.
So this seems like a perfect time, then, to point out that ZAM has their
up! If you're interested in following news about this game as well, or in following/updating our wiki, come and take a look!

The BFF Report Pretends to have Never Played WoW...
2010/07/12 at 1:38 PM
Remember back when all of you claim to have started playing WoW? You know, the pre-beta days when the game was nothing but conceptual drawings and quest ideas jotted on a notepad. That's when the game was hardcore, unlike today, where these n00bs benefit from Blizzard's "casual friendly" experience. Back then, we used to have to grind through countless sheets of college rule and RNG was only a dice roll away.
Well, I decided to pretend that none of that ever happened and that I was just another casual in today's gaming industry trying to mooch a G. Let's see how I did..

Aion 1.9 Is Out, and I Know You Guys Care
2010/07/01 at 5:28 PM
I told someone that I would hook it up with a quick BFF Report for Aion 1.9, and I thought there would be enough stuff to go over... Wow, was I wrong. I mean, the patchnotes are lengthy, but outside of my incredibly butch gladiator toon, there wasn't much to look at. In the end, I somehow managed to squeeze out a few minutes of coverage and even had enough time to highlight some E3 footage that's hosted on our new
BTW, I have some plans for an upcoming BFFR and need your input...

BFF Report - All Points O'Brien
2010/06/24 at 12:12 PM
I went to E3 last week to pretty much just hit on booth babes, but I partied a little too hard and now I have this "Malgayne pwnz" tribal henna tattoo on my left rump-cheek (near the crease). I vaguely remember getting the chance to
interview tons of developers
making games that somehow will all be the next "WoW killer," and even went toe-to-toe with EJ "
" Moreland, lead designer for APB! Speaking of...
This week's BFF Report is all about gameplay in All Points Bulletin... and man what a controversial subject that is amirite!?? Seriously, talk about panties->bunched when they announced that they embargoed reviews until after release (now down to July 2nd, UK release date). Then there are all the lone-wolf types who try and play this massive MULTIPLAYER game all by their lonesome and then QQ about how boring it is (they are right, btw). Truth be told, the game has it's flaws, but the good news is that the
developers are aware
of the community's concern... now let's see if they actually do anything about it.

BFF Report Rummages Through Steam's Indie Bin
2010/05/13 at 5:25 PM
After months of heated debate and seventeen riveting
Hungry Hungry Hippos
has finally granted access for yours truly to post BFF Report episodes here on the lovely Wowhead Blog. And, while it may have cost me twenty big-toe massage sessions and my dignity, I'm proud to have finally made it to this stage in my life. Now to the meat and healthy carbohydrates portion of this week's post...
Last week I took it upon myself to dig through the dollar(ish) bin in the XBOX Live market and left all you PC gamers mildly unsatisfied. As a result, I've turned my focus to Steam in hopes to find something indie, cheap and worthy of my precious in-between-MMOs time... which I apparently have had ample amounts of these past few weeks!
