February 29th, 2000 [by Caspar] :
A fellow Dane, Sψren of Danish CRPG site "RollespilCentralen", reports that they have launched their dual languaged Unofficial MM8 site - available in both Danish and English versions. The Links page has been updated accordingly.
Talking of the Links page, you may want to know that I've made a directory structure to reflect all the sections at the top menu. Thus, you can now gain access directly to a section (and keep the top menu) by putting the name of the section after "http://telp.org/mm8". Like this: http://telp.org/mm8/links, http://telp.org/mm8/faq etc. Clever, eh? ; )
Lastly, I was wondering: What's the deal with Zoop not announcing that MM8 has gone gold? Gonegold.com reports that MM8 went gold last Friday - and not a peep from Zoop! He must have been really busy or...?
Our friend Steve has announced that the GWF MM8 FAQ (how's that for abbreviations ; )) will stay up, and that he plans to make it a "real" fansite with maps and tips and all. He's already got some good info on races/classes of player characters, so go pay it a visit.
BTW, if you have problems downloading the movie, you might want to try clicking this link, and dragging and dropping the file into your Windows Explorer - assuming you're one of the 95.96 percent of our visitors who are running Windows, of course ; ).
Compared to this, the other newsbits seem kinda minor - but here they are nonetheless:
Desslock has turned out a very comprehensive preview over at Gamespot. The Screens section has been updated accordingly.
Sharazad, who runs Storymill.com, reports that her webhost has accidently deleted her pages - until that get's solved, get your fix of fiction here.
3DO's Official MM8 page has got a new layout - but the info there is almost unchanged.
And finally, if you're in the mood for a bit of humour, you may want to check out this picture, posted at the 3DO Community by Kaptain Caveman, who is surprised that it seems you can play the Dark Side in MM8 ; )
A number of non-US residents may be wondering when it'll hit their particular shore. Even though there has been rumors that 3DO has been targetting a common, world wide release date, at this point it looks like you'll still have to keep in touch with your local games dealer - if you want to be sure to get a hold of it a.s.a.p. (and who doesn't? ; )).
Thanks to Greate Pier for the heads up! : )
The previews keep popping up, the latest coming from Gamespot. Their CRPG-guy, Desslock, has visited the NWC offices, and offers a short report on the game. Thanks to Jostein for the heads up. The Screens and Links has been updated accordingly.
We're happy to say that the Mailbox section is functional! Go give our Postmaster something to do! : )
3DO's online store now states that MM8 will be "Shipping Early March"! Woohoo!
There's a new preview up at Gamecenter.com, which contains some awesome new screenshots, but not much new information. Thanks to Frederick the Wizard for the heads up.
Talking of screenshots, you'll notice that we've divided the section to make it more accessible.
TELP member Sharazad has posted a piece of MM8 fiction on her website, Storymill. The story is called "The Oracle's Champion", and is definitely worth checking out.
We've added a homemade banner to the front page that will take you directly to a page at Chips and Bits where you can order MM8. As with MM7, we'll use any revenues we get from this ($2-3 per game) to buy prizes for contests held here. We won't just pocket the money. Promise.
Last but definitely not least we're very proud to announce that AndrewP has joined TELP, and will be in charge of the new Mailbox section! Go check it out! : )
On with the news: IGNPC has put up a new preview of MM8, containing some good info and screenshots (these have been added to the Screens section, of course). They've been talking to the infamous JVC, and the game's lead designer, Bryan Farina. They're actually saying that the game is as good as done, so it might hit the shelves before we know it! Go read for yourself!
My good friend Steve Jaqvaar has announced in our Tavern that The Guild of the Wooden Flute's MM8 FAQ has been moved to a new URL. The Links page has updated accordingly.
Lastly, you'll notice that I've split the news section in multiple pages, just like on Free Erathia. The list was definitely getting too big.
