You'll read it here first! Turbine has officially announced plans to bring Dungeons and Dragons Online to a console, and it's one none of us would have expected. Dungeons and DragonSNES: Stormreach will be a fully-featured, online version of our favorite PC MMO. Here's a LINK (http://ddocast.com/2009/04/01/ddo-heading-to-a-console--the-snes-2.aspx) to the announcement on DDOcast.com.

haha.

very nice touch ..

""The online experience is simply flawless, with a consistant frame rate and cutting-edge grapical immersion taking maximum advantage of the system's 5A22 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ricoh_5A22) processor, based around a 16-bit (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/16-bit) 65c816 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WDC_65816) core." says DDO console lead designer Nat Gann.

Thx Jerry. You rock! Hopefully you don't get in trouble for letting the cat out of the bag.

Best of all. I still have my SNES!!! Now I can finally play on my 17 INCH COLOR TV!!! I wish the escapist forums were still open so I could rub that in those ValVe Fanbois faces!!!

That is totally absurd that they would spen money to push this into a console 3 generations old, with such a low graphics capability. It will not offer a pleasant online gaming experience by no means. Sure it was ok 15-18 years ago, but, come on now. Get with the times. You just wasted $40 million dollars on that POS idea. It would have been more fruitful and saved money by just advertising a bit and offering 3-6 months free gameplay to any interested.

IMO


I have to seriously consider giving up on turbine. I have tried to hang in there mod after mod, but, this is not the push the game needs. If nothing else, this is a step backwards. I have played 2 and a half years with a 2 month hiatas. I feel I have been pimp slapped and so shocked I can't respond with anything but leaving. Alas my subscription was just paid and will stick it out, but any more bad news will surely not be taken lightly.

I think you need to put "April Fool's" at the bottom of the page or the screen shots or in the comments or something. LOL
You are gonna get someone totally freakin out.

gotta love that 14.4 modem speed, man that will eliminate LAG....:D

And now we know the real reason for the data center move. The console cable was not long enough to reach the old site.

Back in the day (Cough cough) we use to have to pick your phone up and dial a phone number to connect you put your phone receiver on a table top device after you dialed the number.

One example is in a movie called "War Games"

LOL i dont think the cell phones of today would fit right.

I felt that it was important to include an SNES I/O Port joke.

Last year I did an April Fool's joke too, but it was almost a bit "too real" and I ended up suckering some people and felt bad about it. This year I decided to make it a bit more obvious...

Loved the YouTube link to the Hatsuni Mikku song! What an odd song....

That was hilarious! The only thing worse than this on the SNES would be a non-mmo replica for the Nintendo DS. Use your pen to hit the baddies with finger of death! lol

If anyone believed that for even a second they really are not too, well, educated about the the way modern games function. There is no amount of money you could spend on research to make an MMO work on a SNES.

The neat thing about the whole post/article was the depth of information.

Bravo, well done, well played!
