IMG Reviews Borderlands: Game Of The Year Edition
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Feral Interactive's Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition. The unique title combines elements of role playing games and first person shooters to provide a unique gaming experience.

Here's an excerpt from the review:

There is a sort of free roaming linearity to Borderlands in that you can only go so far before you have to complete a specific story mission to unlock the next area, but every "level" is vast and asking to be explored for loot and side missions. You are also free to travel to and from any current area you can access, which works well since certain areas are particularly entertaining to play in. You can zoom around in vehicles, or use the fast travel system to instantly teleport to different locations.

Throughout the story different NPCs will give you missions, which range from the serious to the silly. You may have to slay the leader of a bandit camp in one instance, but the next task requires you to shoot bird droppings off a windmill. This sort of light hearted humor pervades Borderlands, and it fits well the mood it aims to set. A few characters really stand out such as the foul-mouthed mechanic Scooter, and the insane scientist Patrica Tannis.

Warhammer Online January Status Update
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Mythic Entertainment has posted a new January Producer's Letter for Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning. The posting covers new features planned for the game, Live Events coming in 2011, expanded account offerings, and addresses current server populations.

Warhammer Online features Realm vs Realm combat and allows players to enter a grim fantasy world where the armies of Order (Dwarves, High Elves, and Empire) and Destruction (Greenskins, Dark Elves, and Chaos) collide to determine the fate of nations.

We have plans for major features for each of our numbered patches this year. The plans include expanding existing areas and features as well as new concepts to the Warhammer Online experience. With each subsequent producer letter I plan to share more of these plans.

Shifting gears a bit, I’d like to tell you about our plans for Live Events. We have eight Live Events planned for this year. Some of these are returning favorites (like the recently completed Keg End) and the forthcoming Night of Murder in February. Others are new ones we have planned to fill in some of the calendar gaps. Along with the Live Events, we’ll continue to support Weekend Warfronts with plans to introduce some scenarios that haven’t made their debut in the Warfront format. We also have some very special plans for Grovod Caverns.

Along with the patches and live events, we also have plans to expand our services and Account Entitlement offerings this year. This includes introducing paid name changes, more pets, and more ways to personalize your character.

Finally, I’d like to address a topic that I’m sure is close to everyone’s hearts; server population. We’ve been monitoring the situations on each of our servers in every market. Our current situation on most of the servers shows us numbers that fall within traditionally acceptable parameters, notably our peak population values. Peak population is where we see the most activity on the server; during what is considered prime-time for the server or ‘peak’ hours. However, we understand that population is a key component to enjoying the game. As part of an effort to ensure off-peak hours are as enjoyable as peak hours can be, we are actively discussing our plans for lower population servers. If you haven’t heard anything to this effect by the time this letter sees print, you should see something very soon. We are committed to ensuring that we do what is needed to make sure players enjoy their experience in WAR.

Hexen: Edge Of Chaos Mod Comes To Macs
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

The team behind the fan based Hexen: Edge of Chaos mod for id Sofware's Doom 3 has announced that the mod is now available to Mac players. Hexen: Edge of Chaos is based on the original Hexen from id and Raven Software

Edge of Chaos is being developed by a team of fans who have always loved the original Hexen since it came out. In fact, most of us spent countless hours with the entire series. When id Software released Doom3, we immediately saw immense potential in the engine itself; the 'Hell' maps gave us the inspiration to make a hack-and-slash game based, primarily, on the original Hexen. You'll even be able to visit some places that you've seen before in the course of your previous adventures. Our story ties into the expansion packs and also touches upon the Heretic narrative; especially the incredible atmosphere painted into these rich worlds and their darkling journeys.

The game will be released in three episodes, each based on one character class. Our first demo release, an excerpt from the first episode, is based on the Cleric class. The second and third episodes will be based on the warrior and sorceress class respectively. We've chosen to use an episodic approach in order to create a manageable release schedule.
