A new Film section will be coming online soon with lots of varied content including top 10 lists as well as a review a week. The top 10 lists will be carried over to our other areas of interest also. A music section will crop up soon that will be headed by Terralor, a new addition to our small band.

Star Wars Galaxies set for release June 26, 2003.

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. and SAN DIEGO - LucasArts and Sony Online Entertainment Inc. today announced Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided, the highly anticipated initial installment of the first Star Wars massively multiplayer online (MMO) game series, will release June 26, 2003. The Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided online fan community now exceeds more than 500,000 registered members.

By comparison, the current player base for the wildly successful Everquest is a mere 420,000.

I hold this looming release date with some trepidation as I really do not want to throw away what little time I have on another MMORPG. As close as that release date is however, the NDA has yet to be lifted. So as soon as it is lifted I'll give you my initial impressions of the game.

Speaking of MMORPGs Lineage 2: The Chaotic Chronicle is set to release soon as well. If you are unfamiliar with this game you are probably hail from the states. Lineage is the most popular MMORPG in existance with players numbering in the millions across Europe and Asia, but it has never been able to loosen the stranglehold Everquest has had on the American market.

The new Lineage will have players raising flightless dragons from infancy which will mature and sprout wings. The players will ride these beasts into combat whether it be on the ground or in the air.

I eagerly drove to the store and picked up Enter the Matrix the moment it became available.

Those sneaky bastards at Day 1 Studios ninja released three new maps and five new game modes today. There will of course be the usual analysis as soon as I can get my grubby hands on the new downloadable content. Fuck work, I'm going home to play MechAssault.

The guide to MechAssault has been updated with a breakdown of the PPC. This will hopefully clear up many of the commonly held misconceptions regarding that weapon.
