EQ2 E3 2

Well, SOE has apparently decided the E3 media coverage is not enough. So they are now reduced to interviewing themselves. E3 interviews with Chris Cao, Moorgard and Scott Hartsman are up on the EQII Players news page. No great revelations but an enjoyable read. But just who is the mysterious interviewer asking the questions? An intern? Another dev? Smed himself?

Also, that
demo video over at EQII Vault is working now. It's hard to get a real feel for gameplay changes from the video but it does show off the two dragons they have been hyping.

EQII Vault has some very
nice pictures of the E3 floor which show the SOE booth (medieval look), booth girl (sorry but whoever the other person is in the picture is actually better looking), and banner (pretty nice). Wow, someone is even actually playing Planetside! Oh wait, he's an SOE employee. I enjoyed these pictures - they give the feeling of being at E3 without the crowds and lack of air conditioning.

Other MMO news:

Kotaku has a look at D&D Online. Pretty cool idea: they were giving away beta slots to groups who could beat the demo dungeon. I'm still not sold on the puzzle aspect.

Joystiq reports on Tabula Rasa the MMO with shooter and rpg elements.

N3rfed has the links to the Vanguard news.

I will edit this post later if I see anything else of interest before I log onto EQII for a DFC run.

The woman on the left in the Planetside pic is Zatozia, the new community rep for PS. Yeah, I play it, and I have the Station Pass to thank for it. I wouldn't have touched that game with a ten-foot pole before, but now that I've tried it, I'm hooked. It's a much better game than some might lead you to believe. It doesn't eat up ALL my EQ2 time, just more than my GF (who plays EQ2) would like.

I'm glad you commented, Addled, because I was feeling a little guilty for joking about Planetside - especially since I've been thinking about trying it out (Station Pass).

I appreciate your positive comments. I recently read more positive Planetside stuff over at Van Hemlock's site:

Intriguing...I mean to try it when I have the time.
