EA Announces Create
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 5 comments

Electronic Arts' Play Label has announced Create, a new family friendly video game that "presents imaginative gameplay challenges where the solutions are fuelled by the creativity of the player." Developed by Bright Light the game is coming to a variety of platforms later this year including the Mac.

“Create uses families’ imaginations to develop new ways to play together that are both fun and challenging,” said Harvey Elliott, VP and General Manager at EA Bright Light. “We wanted to design a game where the entire family can explore, decorate, and solve challenges where no solution is wrong and the only limit is the imagination.”

The more players explore the game, solve level-based challenges, and customize their world, the more rewards will be unlocked. Creativity will be unleashed as players design environments with easy-to-use brushes and tools, including textures, props and animating objects that bring the scene to life. On the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and MAC players can share any of their creations, solutions or challenges with the community through the console and also via the official Create website. Friends can download and remix solutions and set challenges for other players to download and complete. Imaginations will run wild this holiday!
Create is scheduled for a November 2010 release. For more information follow the links below.

WoW Cataclysm: Tirisfal Glades Preview
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Ten Ton Hammer has posted a new preview of Blizzard Entertainment's upcoming Cataclysm expansion for World of Warcraft. Cataclysm will allow players to adventure as two new playable races, bring their characters to level 85, take on challenging quests and dungeons in all-new zones, and experience dramatic changes to familiar aspects of the game in the wake of a world-shattering disaster. TTH's article focuses on changes to the Tirisfal Glades zone.

Moving northeast of the Zepplin towers players will find possibly the biggest change in the zone. Brill has undergone some amazing changes. Once a human town of old taken over by the Forsaken it was desperately in need of some serious repairs and it seems the Forsaken have finally taken the initiative and done just that. The once ramshackle village has been given a complete Forsaken upgrade. The buildings of Brill, while still the same in number, are bigger and have distinctly Forsaken architecture, however traces of the village’s human past still linger in the building design.

A statue of Sylvanas now stands near the center of town, proudly proclaiming the  loyalties of the local residents. Machines of war, including siege engines and plague machines, dot the town. Even the small tent covering the Trade Supplier has been given a Forsaken upgrade. The most exciting change, however (especially for low level players) is the addition of Brill’s very own Bat Handler. The graveyard outside of Brill remains untouched, however it does look significantly better as the grass regains it’s health.
