MMO Reporter Daily 005 – July 13th, 2012
Welcome to MMO Reporter Daily, your bite-sized MMO news podcast. This is episode 5 for July 13th, 2012. Today we discuss WoW’s server blade auction, Guild Wars 2′s developer livestream, Bioware-Mythic’s new Ultima game, and LOTRO’s special and write-ups.
WoW’s server blade auction raises $330,000 for St. Judes
- Several months ago, we discussed on MMO Reporter that World of Warcraft was auctioning off it’s former server shards, the physical pieces of hardware that the game ran on, for charity.
- With the charity now complete, it’s been announced that the auction raised a total of $330,000 for St. Judes.
- It’s easy to see MMO gamers as self obsessed, obsessive compulsive and lazy, well, that’s just me, but this shows that the community really has a good heart. That, or they just wanted the phat lootz and to be able to say that they owned their own WoW server.
Guild Wars 2 devs Eric Flannum and Colin Johanson livestream
- Talk about weapons, lore and dungeons.
- If you’re biding your time as many of us are, then check out the live stream to get your Guild Wars 2 fix.
Bioware-Mythic Announces Ultima Forever - Quest for the Avatar
- There’s very little news about this game so far, with the splash page simply showing a map, 2 classes: Mage and Fighter, and some concept art.
- While it’s easy to see that this will not be the same Ultima that we foundly remember from our youths, it’s a little hard to complain when it’s been so long since we’ve seen anything from the IP.
LOTRO Starter Pack only $14.99 on Steam until July 23rd.
- an exclusive Noble Grey Steed
- Three Bonus Quest Packs: North Downs, Evendim and Misty Mountains
- 25% XP boost token that work through untill level 65
- 1,000 turbine points to spend in the store.
Hand on with LOTRO’s Riders of Rohan mounted combat.
- This extensive hands on with the system by our own Justin Olivetti give detailed descriptions of the mounted combat itself, the trait and cosmetic system for the War Steed and a little bit of information about the expansion itself.
- A great read, and definitely worth checking out.
