Zygor Guides 3 Revealed

Only one week to go before the Cataclysm releases.

With the 2 new races, the whole leveling experience changed for levels from 1 to 60 and the 80 to 85 leveling, there's a lot of new content and stuff to go through, which keeps the people behind the premium leveling guides busy...

And now, just before the new expansion, Zygor Guides revealed a new 3.0 version of their in-game guide viewer.

To see for yourself what Zygor Guides 3 looks like, watch the Zygor Guides 3.0 video now:

In addition to the in-game interface tweaks, the Zygor's leveling guides as a whole, and everything else has been renewed for Cataclysm (and the patch 4.0.3 aka The Shattering onwards), including the brand new level 1-60 guides, Goblin and Worgen guides, and of course, the huge level 80 to 85 guides that'll get you to the new level cap as fast as possible.

Also, if you're returning to WoW after a break, a leveling guide like Zygor's is an awesome way to get into the groove again.

There are awesome Developer Diary videos at YouTube about Fallout: New Vegas. There are six of these video diaries in total. To make it easy, I made a playlist for the Making of Fallout: New Vegas at YouTube:

Fallout: New Vegas Developer Diaries

In the first developer diary of Fallout: New Vegas, the developers at Obsidian discuss the storyline for Fallout: New Vegas -- releasing on October 19th in North America and October 22nd in Europe.

In the second diary, the developers talk about technology and weapons in the Mojave Wasteland, as well as how they approached sound design and music for the game.

The third video, is about the game's art direction and style.

In the fourth diary, the developers go about how the factions impact your quest in the Mojave Wasteland. Learn more about major factions -- including NCR, Caesar's Legion, and Mr. House.

The fifth video diary, is all about the New Vegas strip, one of the centerpieces of the game.

The sixth video, which is also the final video diary for Fallout: New Vegas, is where the developers and members of the game's cast discuss the characters from the game. Video includes Ron Perlman, Matthew Perry, Wayne Newton, William Sadler, and Kris Kristofferson.

Zygor Cataclysm Level 80-85 Guide

Zygor Guides 3 for Cataclysm has been announced! The fully renewed 1-85 Cataclysm leveling guides for both Alliance and Horde (and the 80-85 update) are on sale now, so you can be ready when the Cataclysm comes out.

Are you ready for The Cataclysm on day one?

Zygor Guides, the best-selling World of Warcraft leveling guides for both Alliance and Horde, is getting ready for the new expansion.

The updated version 3 guides include everything about leveling from 80 to 85 and the new starter guides for the starting areas of the Goblins and the Worgen, The Lost Isles and Gilneas.

WTH is Zygor Guide?

In case you are not familiar with the Zygor Guide's, check this video out:

If you can't see the video embedded above, watch it on YouTube: Zygor Guide Demo. Also, watch this video, comparing the usual leveling guides to Zygor's...

If you can't see the video embedded above, watch it on YouTube: WoW Leveling Guide Comparison.

In case your wondering why one would pay anything for a leveling guide when there's free leveling guides available...

Ask yourself who will do a better job and have all the updates ready for the new expansion on time - Someone who slaves away when there's time or someone who is well-known for premium leveling guides?

If you want to level as fast as possible, you get a premium leveling guide (with a in-game addon). If you want to explore or for someone to create and update a free guide, you wait and have fun on your own, and that's cool if you like it that way :)

Personally, I like to level as fast as possible and not waste any time running around not knowing what to do - The videos and the numbers speak for themselves, Zygor's guides are top-notch, and I'm proudly linking to them with my affiliate links, which means that if you buy'em through my links, I'll get my cut for that sale, and I'll thank you for that if you do.

The Cataclysm 1-85 Leveling Guide

The new 1-85 Leveling Guides are on sale now, as the Zygor Guides Version 3 was announced a week before the new expansion.

Fallout: New Vegas Release Date is Here!

Fallout: New Vegas is released in the US on October 19th 2010. The EU release will follow couple of days later, on 22nd of October (damnit, it'll be a long week for me!).

The Fallout: New Vegas Collector's Editions have been sold out long ago, as a lot of people pre-ordeded F:NW after June. The ones that are left are going as high as $150. There has not been announcements that there would be more collector's editions available, but you never know. The bonuses in the CE are great, but not so great that it'd be worth it to pay 100 bucks more for it.

Fallout: New Vegas is available for XBox 360, PS3 and PC DVD

Anyway, as said, Fallout: New Vegas has been released this week, and I'm getting mine on Friday 22nd. You lucky US bastards better buy the Fallout: New Vegas as soon as you can, so you can brag about it for couple of days :)

p.s. My free Fallout 3 Perfect Character -guide has been read over 85 thousand times, and if the character creation, S.P.E.C.I.A.L. and skills remain the same, the guide will be golden for F:NW as well!

The Raid - WoW Documentary

World of Warcraft documentary "The Raid" is in the making. The Raid will be a film about WoW raiding and what it means to be a raider, first of its kind on this scale, so it'll be interesting to see how it turns out.

Based on the trailer the documentary looks promising, so it will be an interesting look into the game. Because the movie is still in the making, you have a chance to help making it real. This blog post of mine is part of doing my share for it...

Check the trailer yourself to see what's coming. And check the links below to join the raid yourself.

The Raid - World of Warcraft Documentary

Welcome to the world of online raiding. In certain MMORPG's, like Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft, gaming content is regularly created for the collaborative participation of up to twenty-five players at a time. Each player fulfills a particular role within the collective based on the skills attributed to their class of character in the game. Some play healers, some play damage dealers, and some play characters defensively designed to soak the large amounts of damage dealt by their virtual opponents. These players group together to form raids that routinely meet to test themselves against scripted game encounters. The technical design of these encounters is often so tightly tuned that it requires a remarkable amount of practice and planning for a raid to complete them, and the near flawless performance of each of its members. - http://www.jointheraid.com
"The Raid" will be a film about raiding and what it means to be a raider. We will capture the numerous hours invested by a diverse group of gamers in a complicated and choreographed digital environment, where every contribution weighs on their success or failure. We will watch, in person and virtually, as members strategize, fail, re-strategize, and inevitably find victory in their pursuits. We will sit with them in their homes and seek to understand the value this kind of commitment has in their daily lives, amidst their work, and within their families. We will question them about virtual achievements and their value. We will sit with social experts concerned about the growing issue of internet addiction and seek their opinions. We will question the future of the MMO experience and its place in the global landscape of culture, education, and business. Most of all, we will demonstrate and feel the excitement and energy of this kind of experience, which is so often criticized and misunderstood. - http://www.jointheraid.com

I have always been fascinated with technology and its effect on social culture, but my exploration into the world of Massively Multiplayer Online Role-playing Games (MMORPG's) opened my eyes to a type of social organization I had never seen before. I experienced faceless communities capable of remarkable commitment, coordination, and success while never actually interacting physically. - Kevin Michael Johnson http://www.jointheraid.com
