Warcraft III Preview
A-KO, [News] 10/17/2001 11:43:00 AM CST
Gamespot has put up a preview of the upcoming Blizzard RTS, Warcraft III. Sounds like a pretty interesting addition to the Warcraft world to me...Then again I only played WC1 so I'm sure this would go far beyond anything I remember. Some little things that I've read about in this so far.

  • Kodo Beast - Creature that devours anything and if killed before swallowing, the swallowed creatures survive.
  • Wolf Riders - Has the ability to hurl nets at enemies and stopping them.
  • Tauren Chieftain Leader - Shockwave ability causes a ripple effect in the ground and destroys any enemy in its path.

There's a ton of information on there related to more attacks and other creatures, check it out.  More information on this great game can be seen at our Warcraft III Reign of Chaos page. Thanks BluesNews.

Ghost Recon
Zoob, [Game News] 10/14/2001 8:12:00 PM CST
UbiSoft and Red Storm Entertainment are coming out with another Tom Clancy game, Ghost Recon. Here's the synapsis: Russia has fallen under the control of ultra-nationalistic leaders intent on rebuilding the Iron Curtain. This leads to conflict with NATO as Russia attempts to reclaim the breakaway republic of Georgia, and the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. As the war escalates, casualties mount, hostages are taken and the Ghosts are sent in.

Scratch Sketches Tack
Zoob, [Fun] 10/13/2001 4:30:00 PM CST
Scratch threw together a sketch of our man Tack not so long ago. Tack has been using it as his avatar, but I figured it might be a good idea to show off the talent of our man Scratch, and let everyone see this nice drawing. In case anyone is wondering, Tack is wicked good with the mini-gun in Unreal Tournament. That's what this picture is all about.

I just corrected an error in the files/downloads section that prevented downloads. Sheesh! How am I supposed to know things aren't working if people don't speak up!? :-)

It's all fixed now. Also, have a look at this neat picture from Worlds of Warcraft!
