Today’s reading challenge

Another new blog to welcome to the community, put a big hand together for Da Squig Herder. We’ll be watching you, greenie!

The Warhammer Herald starts releasing guild information as the guild beta gets underway. We expect to hear a lot more about how guilds work, but for now – take a look at how to create a guild. Happy to report that this news is also up on the European site, complete with a featured European guild instead of a US one. Nice work!

Penny Arcade weighs in on the recent announcement of cuts. Secret Lives of Mobs reaches part 5 of The Inquisition strip.

New episodes of ChaosCast and the Podcast of Reckoning are out (they need to stagger them, but hey, it’s great to hear Warhammer podcasts regardless of timing).

The Greenskin hosts Romanus’ part 2 modelling guide. I look at these things and am totally in awe of how anyone makes a (detailed) lump of metal look so damn good. We definitely recommend these guides if you want to give painting a shot.

The new E3 screenshots can be seen here and are all the ones dated July 14th. Looking pretty! And here’s the factsheet.

Summary of the EA press conference at E3 notable for the total lack of mention of WAR. I wish the press would chill about iPhone software (we’ve had smartphones for years here that you could download 3rd party software to.)

Eurogamer reports EA’s announcement of Nucleus, a new social games service which will be launched initially in sports games and then across 25 games by the end of 2009. One of the examples given cites Warhammer Online:

you might tell Ellie she has to get her Warhammer Online character to level 30 and unlock all the Battlefield achievements by next weekend, and Nucleus would also allow you to tell your mutual friends that you had set this challenge.

Blizzard have won their case against the programmer who created Glider, a bot system.

Josh Drescher gives an interview to Gamasutra about releasing in a post-WoW world.

TenTonHammer forums pose the question we’ve all been asking – How would Paul Barnett have delivered the news about the city and class cuts? Seriously, it’s worth stopping by and having a look at both the text and graphical answers.
