#BlameCanada for No Power and Derp Cutscenes!
If you haven't watched tonight's cutscenes... prepare for DERP! Normally, it takes 1 animator 2-3 days to finish the 2-3 cutscenes for each week's release. But yesterday night, we got a call from Ghost, who had been working on the boss monster AND cutscene animations! A severe storm had knocked his power out, so he couldn't finish the cutscenes OR the boss monster (or, y'know, even turn his laptop on to send them to us)!
At Artix Entertainment, we never back down from a challenge, or an opportunity to have fun making games, and this news was an opportunity to do BOTH! So Cysero and Samba put on their +15 Animating gauntlets, I pared down the battle scenes, and we got ready to knock out DERP versions of Ghosts soon-to-be-REALLY-finished epic cutscenes!
24 hours of frenzy led to the entire team - and parts of the rest of the game itself - getting turned upside down and inside out! But we pulled it off before release, because that's just how we roll!*
We will let everyone know as soon as Ghost is finished with THIS week's cutscenes! Until then, we would LOVE to hear your comments on the derp versions! Record your audio commentary as you watch them and send us the links!
* To make matters even MORE absurd, Ghost's power was turned back on 2 hours before the release! Not enough time to finish anything but the boss monster. He's hard at work to get you the epic cinematics you love, but for now... enjoy the DERP!
Quibble Coinbiter's Shop is live!

Don't miss your chance to get this gear, because it's never going to return! We're not sure where he got it, and we don't really want to know. We just love /equipping it, and hope you all do, too!

The Last Element is NOT the Last Chapter!
Finally, even though it has cost Galanoth dearly, the Proto-Prime Elemental Dragons are growing in power and you are returning balance to the elements. Or so you think...
Desoloth, the Final, finds this amusing.You've even brought a new toy for him to play with... The Proto-Prime of Earth, Arradia!
This week you journey into the twisted Earth Realm where you will learn much more than you bargined for about the power of Elemental Earth Magic as well as the resonating frequencies of some crystals. Have you ever heard crystals sing? (If you've played through Mythsong valley then the answer is YES)
This week you will not just hear them sing, you will need to focus, and burn their song into your mind and replay it! There is also a brand new Etherstorm Earth Rep Shop with new reputation items for you to enjoy!
Etherstorm is drawing to a close, but it might not be the ending you would like.
Quibble Is Back!
This time he's returned with some elemental, natural and markedly UN-natural goodies for you including Solrac's Woodland set...
And the highly anticipated transforming armor from Dage... the Exosuit Binoku which transforms (for you, not those around you) when you click on it. There are SEVERAL parts to the set and each one has more than one transformation depending on where and how many times you click it. Will you be the first to find every transformation?!
This is all the same armor and helm. Seperate weapons.
Ready for the SUPERBOWL?! This Sunday is the biggest American Football game of the year... the showdown between the New York Giants and the New England patriots. To celebrate, during the Superbowl's Half-Time Show we will be opening up the PUNT map so you can see how far YOU can kick Twilly. Reach the full 100 Yards and get an ACHIEVEMENT BADGE! We are also opening the Half-Time shop during the Superbowl's Half-Time where you can show support for YOUR favorite team, the Mammoths or the Loyalists!
See you at Half-time!
