'WoW' Achievements Confirmed

Posted July 17, 2008 - By Stephen Johnson

The "Wrath of the Lich King" World of Warcraft expansion will have an achievement system. According to Blizzard:

"These self-contained goals will offer new challenges, satisfy goal-oriented players, allow others to see your accomplishments in World of Warcraft -- and are just plain fun."

The system will launch with more than 500 achievements for things like world exploration, PVP, PVE, professions and character development. Some will be "epic," others will be "whimsical." Some achievements come with purely cosmetic rewards, too.

Here's a ton of information, right from the source.

'KOTOR' MMO Confirmed?

Posted July 17, 2008 - By Stephen Johnson

This might be the biggest news to come out of E3 08: Knights of the Old Republic MMO has reportedly been confirmed.

Portfolio.com published a short excerpt of an interview with EA boss John Riccitiello where he talked about the MMOs EA has in development: "the one that people are dying for us to talk to them about -- in partnership with Lucas, coming out of BioWare."  Not new info--previously, everyone assumed this meant a KOTOR MMO--but here's the new news:

N. Evan Van Zelfden, the writer of the report, said Riccitiello was asked specifically if he was talking about "KOTOR Online," and Riccitiello responded unequivocally, "Yes."

So, it's a little he-said-she-said, but moving toward official.

The big appeal of games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero is they help ordinary people, many of whom don't have any musical talent, pretend to be rock stars. Now, an upcoming game from Konami called Rock Revolution is taking that premise one step further and giving gamers the chance to star in their own music videos.

Not ashamed of logical tie ins, Konami has decided to sponsor Linkin Park's Projekt Revolution tour. Being one of the biggest bands on the planet, the game is sure to be a big hit based on product placement alone.
