Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Q&A talks with Pete Hines of Bethesda
Softworks about the next installment in the Elder Scrolls series of RPGs:
"We did three whole new combat systems before settling on the one that’s in
the game now. We really are striving to get the feeling of guys bashing each
other with swords. So it plays better and it looks better. You’re in control
of it more and you understand what’s going on in the game. There’s no hidden
“to hit” rolls that cause you to miss when your sword clearly hits the guy.
The stats control the damage you do when you hit, not whether or not you
hit. There are special moves you can perform and the blocking is active. So
the timing of it becomes a key strategy in fighting."

Nice Tech Q&A talks with Doug Littlejohns and Paul Baker about their new
company Nice Tech and its MMOG
technology: "Publishers are still wary about the challenges, costs and risks
of developing MMOGs. Nice Tech's technology will provide a solution to these
problems. The technology (see below) changes the design process - designers
and producers can test content and gameplay in a live environment from the
start of the product development process. In addition, the player will not
be restricted to follow developer code scripts. The result will be
innovative and truly interactive content that will ultimately rival reality
