NOT QUITE DAILY, BUT IT’S STILL AN AWFULLY DENSE DOSAGE [Author: lum]

UO news: Everyone’s talking about the new proposed stat system, so you may have missed the reannounced veteran bribes… …Melantus posted his notes from the UO World Faire, and from the looks of it he went through a few pencils… …rumor has it G. Money Bob‘s notes from the UO World Faire was simply a long list of 1s and 0s. Then Neo kicked his ass…

EQ news: Scars of Velious is set to hit the stores next week… but if you’re a guide, you already got your free copy (and if you’re not, dashing to be the first to get the mad lewtz0rz just got even more pointless than it already was)… …rumors are flying about a “free XP exploit” involving resurrection bugs (again) that some ubers are exploiting to get, well, more uber… …Absor checks in with the raging shamans (or, in this case, the shamans who can only rage for 4 seconds until their mana drains) and shows dignity, calm and respect in the fact of player rage.

Azraphael, antiranter (you know, like matter and antimatter) turned AC producer, showed up, said “Yee!“, left, all was well again…

Other news: Chris Roberts, Wing Commander and Digital Anvil founder, continues his crusade to be mistaken for Richard Garriott, gets fired from his own company… …the merry men of Origin held a chat last night, the transcript of which leads me to suspect they are having entirely too much fun and should be cranky and lashing out at their fans and the press like REAL developers… …J WANTS TO KNOW MORE ABOUT SHADOWBANE, DAMMIT despite his probably knowing more about the game then the developers do…
