…on the links

The Warhammer Herald reports that Warhammer Online won best of E3:PC at G4TV (ie. G4TV liked it better than Spore and Left 4 Dead!) and also highlights an interview with Josh there.

Carrie Gouskos mentions her interview on ChaosCast no.4 and the sudden realisation that Warhammer Online is no ‘little thing’.

Times they are a-changin’ at Warhammer Alliance, and Garthilk posts about the state of WHA and plans for the future. Plans involving a reorganisation, a database and of course … a wiki!

Vale writes a new Warrior Priest blog, huzzah!

John Darwin is on trial at the moment for faking his death in a canoeing accident while his wife cashed in on the life insurance. It’s a bizarre case. Anyway, in her defense case earlier this week, she mentioned MMOs (saying her husband had met someone he’d gone on to have an affair with over one).

Relmstein classifies the different types of villains we meet in MMORPGs.

Keen posts his first article on E3 and Warhammer Online over at the Vault. His second piece is also up over there, or you can read it on his own blog.

mmorpg.com sent a journalist to check out WAR at E3 and she gives her reactions here. Will have to remember to go thank her if our dwarf girls get cool jewelry.

As I often see during demos, the guys showed me the various male characters. I wanted to see the females. So when I got the chance for hands-on, I scrolled through the various races and careers and decided to customize a Dwarven female. Sorry, no beards for female Dwarves. Okay… I could live with that but where was MY jewelry? Wait just one doggone minute. How come the male Dwarves got jewelry and the females didn’t?

“We can look at that!” was the chorus of replies.

Bruce Everiss writes about virtual worlds, including MMORPGs and investment into these worlds. Not sure what his point is, except that they cost a lot and the earning potential is huge, but they often fail. I could have said that and I’m no ‘veteran games industry marketer’.

For those who wanted, there’s another white lion vid here, it includes some footage of a fully grown white lion. Oh, you wanted more info about White Lions in the game? Check out this brief preview at gamespot.

Games Workshop have posted a preview to Games Day UK 2008 on their site.

Random things you should watch this week: Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, and the Watchmen trailer.

Love RPGs and hate saving money – this could be the product for you!! Of course, it’s only available in Japan, but we hereby launch the quest to get it released over in the UK and US.

  3. Dr Horrible looks worryingly like Gordon Ramsay.

  4. I think I read Doc Horrible is only online till midnight tonight and then just on iTunes – bleh

  5. Haha yes now that you say it, he does look a bit like Ramsay. But I can’t imagine him in those goggles shouting “stop, what are you doing with that freeze-ray? Are you trying to kill us?!”
