Warhammer 40k MMO canned

But will instead be a singleplayer game with multiplayer compoants.

I am accually excited about this prospect. Will this be a full Warhammer 40k singleplayer RPG ?

I really hope so.

Sadly this does mean some people have lost there jobs over at THQ and Relic.

Mass effect 3 getting a new ending

The masters of story telling strike again:

"Exec Producer Casey Hudson and the team are hard at work on a number of game content initiatives that will help answer the questions, providing more clarity for those seeking further closure to their journey. You'll hear more on this in April. We're working hard to maintain the right balance between the artistic integrity of the original story while addressing the fan feedback we've received. This is in addition to our existing plan to continue providing new Mass Effect content and new full games, so rest assured that your journey in the Mass Effect universe can, and will, continue."
Game content initiatives ........... Paid DLC for fixed ending - Perfect
Artistic integrity of story ....... um ...... er ........ Shepard it was just a dream - Brilliant.

More Mists of Pandaria Screenshots

Already there

So calls go out across the internet to boycott Bioware for the treatment of Mass Effect in the 3rd installment and its conclusion.

All I can say is I am already there but I started with Dragon Age 2.

Any goodwill the company had built up was destroyed when they released that game.

It is the worst game I have ever brought for my PC and its up against titles like Derek Smarts: Battlecruser 3000AD.

Notch getting his Bafta

And Hes going to do a space game next .....

Wastland 2

Before Fallout they made a game called Wasteland. I had it on the C64 and it was one of the best RPG's to be made in the 80's.

Now thanks to Kickstarter, they are trying to raise funds to make a sequel:

Guildwars 2 Pre Order April 10th

Scrolls is Scrolls

Sanity won the day between Bethesda's lawers and Mojang:
 We have settled the lawsuit over Scrolls and Mojang and Bethesda are friends again.

To answer the big question – yes Scrolls is still going to be called Scrolls.

To answer the second question – we aren’t going to keep the trade mark.

For us this was never about a trade mark but being able to use Scrolls as the name of our game which we can – Yey.

Mists of Pandera Stat Changes

Ghostcrawler has a long list of the stat changes.

The parts I am interested in is the PVP gear. They seem to be making it a lower ilevel than pve meaning people won't be able to use in lfr or lfg easily.

But it sounds like PVP gear will be better for pvp just not such a huge gap. Which is a shame, I feel if you only do PVP you should have better gear for pvp than those who only do PVE.

Anyway this list needs more analysing before I can really comment on it.

Minecraft 1.2 Released

Its now auto patches and is ready to go, YAY.

Full patch notes in rest of post.

Minecraft 1.2 Tomorrow

Tis the session to be patching ......

Minecraft 1.2 is out tomorrow, you can get the preview build now but the client will auto update offically tomorrow.

I can't wait.

Also more news on the server side API for mods:
The plan is to build a fresh server API, and then extend it to support client-side modding (in one way or another). We will try to make it easy for bukkit users to convert if they wish to do so, but backwards compatibility is not guaranteed. We will, however, help bukkit to be compatible with 1.2, to avoid having a long gap while you wait for the official Minecraft server to catch up.
