Darkwind–War on Wheels: Computer Controlled Cars Learn From Player Behavior
Darkwind, the multiplayer on-line turn based strategy war game has continued to push the boundaries of possibilities in on-line gaming with the integration of computer generated players who have improved their skills through cross breeding, natural selection, and learning from human behavior. The game is one of an extreme minority to implement Genetic Algorithms (GAs) to breed new superior computer generated players who additionally can learn from the strategies of their human adversaries.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques can make the behavior of the computer agent more interesting, varied and believable as it has learned behaviors rather than rules being pre-programmed to determine behavior. Genetic algorithms use techniques inspired by Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution and survival of the fittest via natural selection: a population of individuals undergo selection in a system where variation inducing operators such as crossover of genes and ongoing mutations are present. The evolution starts from a population of individuals and happens in generations.
In each generation the fitness of every individual in the population is evaluated and based on this multiple individuals are randomly selected and modified (recombined and possibly mutated) to form a new population. The new population is then used in the next iteration of the algorithm. A fitness function is used to evaluate individuals, and reproductive success varies with fitness. The results are the average fitness being increased with each generation.
GA evolved computer agents/drivers are being introduced in Darkwind for specific track/car combinations in the racing environment. Effective racing lines for these combinations are being evolved through the use of waypoints. Computer drivers use these waypoints during the game to influence their behavior as they navigate static and moving obstacles on the racetrack. This provides an evolved understanding of the overall shape of the track. The GAs have yielded an improvement of up to 30% in computer driver behavior, but more importantly the use of GAs can make the behavior of the driver more human like.
Darkwind players are varied, and while some prefer Player-V-Player conflicts, others prefer to team up against computer adversaries. The introduction of GA evolved computer agents benefits all players and increases the challenge for the most effective players.
AI is also being deployed in the wilderness area of the game for efficient path finding, obstacle avoidance and terrain navigation. The routes taken by human players over thousands of journeys per week as they navigate the wilderness are used as a form of route planning consensus by the computer agents in a similar manner to that of how ants use pheromones to mark their trail and guide following ants. If the trail is successful and more cars use it, the guidance becomes more intense and denser, whereas other trails fade out. This is much more effective than doing a cost-surface analysis where the computer agent makes a computational evaluation of the landscape around them as they traverse it, and therefore once again leads to more human like decisions and challenging opponents.

More Beta MMORPGs
A few interesting Beta MMORPGs have been added to GameOgre.com including Africa, The Chronicle, All Points Bulletin, and Fallen Earth. Africa’s setting of 13th century Africa is very innovative for the MMO genre since most games have settings based purely on fantasy rather than a real continent or nation. For example, the setting of the Chronicle is based on medieval fantasy and lets you choose one of 27 races. All Points Bulletin has a little more realistic setting than medieval fantasy since it is similar to the controversial Grand Theft Auto franchise with freeform combat and driving.

MMOs Looking For Beta Testers
A recently added Beta MMORPG is currently looking for beta testers, Carpe Diem (cancelled). Carpe Diem should be very interesting because of two key features: mounts and unscripted action. Instead of just being traveling devices, you will be able to train and fight on your mounts. The unscripted action will allow the ultimate boss to be played by a real person instead of a NPC who always performs the same actions.
New RTS Section
There is now a new Retail RTS section that will cover RTS games with a multiplayer mode. Among the recently added games are Dragonshard, Battle for Middle Earth II, and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War.

Shadowbane Possibly Closing After Going Free
The downside of a MMORPG going free-to-play revealed its ugly head this week when it was announced that the development house for Shadowbane, Wolfpack Studios, was being closed down. May 15th will be its last day. This move puts the future of Shadowbane in jeopardy. Apparently, the decision to go free-to-play was a way to wind the game down instead of trying to save it with a new strategy, because Shadowbane has not been free long.
New Free MMORPG
Galactica has been added to the Free MMORPG Lair. Players who liked the classic PC game known as Master of Orion should enjoy this game. This space MMO offers a deep gaming experience with economics, diplomacy, and space warfare. The most unique feature of the game is that it offers two different versions. The sim version offers more depth while the arcade version offers more fighting. You will need to download a small game client to play either version.

Fleets of Anarchy has been added to the Free Online Game category. FOA is a text-based RPG/strategy game where you are a space ship pilot in a great conflict of space ship fleets.

Hardcore PvPers should be rejoicing over this news since Shadowbane was built primarily for player versus player combat, but strategy gamers should also enjoy a few of the game’s different features such as city building, raising armies, and sieges.
New Free MMORPG
RAN Online has been added to the Free MMORPG Lair. RAN is a free 3D MMORPG based in Asia with a focus on action.

New Section in Review Directory
4Studios Football and several other online sports games have been added to the new Fantasy Sports section in the Review Directory.

Two New Games Added
Monster and Me has been added to the Free MMORPG Lair while Neocron Arcade has been added to the Free Game Lair. Monster and Me sports fairly nice graphics for a free MMO, but the best aspect of the game has to be its wide variety of features. You can develop your pets into battle machines, build a house, get married, and make your own equipment. On the flipside, Neocron Arcade is a free arcade shooter with only one real focus: blowing stuff up.
New Free Online RPGs and PlanetSide to Offer Free Version

In a way, you can call these games PreMMORPGs since MUDs have been around considerably longer than their mostly graphical counterparts.

GameOgre.com’s current Featured Online Game of the Week, FlyFF, returned to operations after being down for over a month.

In other news, City of Villains has been added to the MMORPG Lair since it launched this week. Expect a review of the game by GameOgre.com soon.
Sony Going to Offer a Free MMORPG
In somewhat surprising news, one of the leading MMORPG operators has decided to offer a free MMORPG. Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) is set to launch a yet unnamed free MMORPG in the fall of 2006. Instead of offering a subscription like SOE normally does, it try to profit on extra items and game items instead. As GameOgre mentions in Free MMORPGs Versus Pay-to-Play MMORPGs this strategy may be getting popular in Korea but it has yet to be proven over the long term. Apparently, this announcement and the previous one months ago that SOE would sell in-game items for real cash on the Station Exchange comes as a direct response to the red hot MMORPG currency and item market currently led by IGE.

World of Warcraft Expansion News?
Although definitely not official, info about the first World of Warcraft expansion is starting to leak out. Supposedly the expansion will be called Burning Crusade and offer 2 new races (Blood Elves for the Horde and Draenei for the Alliance), one new profession (jewel crafting), and no new classes. Also, the level cap is supposed to be raised to either 70 or 75. Take note that this “news” could be just a rumor. If this info is true, not a having a new class will definitely disappoint a lot of WoW gamers. New races would be nice but new classes should be added for such a highly anticipated expansion.

MMORPG to Close
Once considered one of the major MMORPGs in America, Asheron’s Call 2 has to decided to hang it up at the end of this year. This announcement comes only a few months after the Legions expansion. This means that Turbine taking control of the struggling Asheron’s Call franchise from Microsoft could not ultimately save the game. Thus, AC2 will stay in the MMORPG Lair until it finally ceases operations. As the MMORPG genre continues to get over-crowded by both free and pay-to-play MMORPGs, do not be shocked to see more announcements like this one in the coming months.

More Free Trials
A few new MMORPG free trials have been added to the MMORPG Free Trial Lair including Ragnarok Online, Ultima Online Gold, and RYL. Take note that the Ultima Online Gold trial is on FilePlanet rather than the MMORPG’s website.
Although its considered cheating by some MMO players and some games ban accounts for it, MMORPG trading continues to build steam. However, some players have been victims of shady dealings.

Battlegrounds Finally Live on World of WarCraft
One of the most anticipated features for World of Warcraft has finally arrived. Battlegrounds is one the top features intended to keep players interested after reaching the level cap of 60. Judging by server performance or lack there of for some people, it looks like players are stampeding to join the war!
New MMOFPS In Development
Displayed at E3, Huxley by WebZen will be a MMOFPS set in a post-apocalyptic environment and is slated for release in 2006. Since no MMOFPS has really set the MMO landscape on fire yet, it will be interesting to see where Huxley can take the genre. The key to success for a MMOFPS looking to lead this growing MMO niche will be intense action coupled with depth and great replay value. PlanetSide might be the best so MMOFPS so far, but it hasn’t exactly been a runaway hit. Hopefully, a new online shooter like Huxley can take the ball and run with it.
Online Team Based First Person Shooter In The Works
Look for an online shooter being released in the summer entitled Control Monger. You can learn more about it at controlmonger.com. It will be 100% free to download and play.
World of Warcraft Update
The PVP Honor System is now live via a 33 MB patch. The patch will likely take some time to download for low bandwidth WoWers due to the file size and the update system. In addition to the much anticipated PVP Honor System, the patch includes live events and a substantial amount of bug fixes.

GameOgre.com’s Game Rental Lair has been enhanced with several more game rental sites. Some of these rental sites offer 10 or 14 day free trials so you can check them out before deciding to subscribe.

Think you have what it takes to make a logo for a super hero? The winning logo will be placed on an official hero for Freedom Force Versus The Third Reich. This character will then be downloadable for all players who own the game.
World of WarCraft Goodies
Look for several improvements in the works by Blizzard for World of WarCraft in the coming weeks and months. Currently in development, PvP Battlegrounds will be aimed primarily at higher level players who have reached level 60 and want new challenges. In addition, the higher level players will also get a new raid dungeon and new items.
This is good news for players because it should take away one of the biggest complaints about WoW, lack of interest after hitting level 60. Some players can hit level 60 very quickly in WoW, so it has been a source for numerous arguments in the game. Keep an eye out for a WoW review and a WoW lair very soon on GameOgre.com.
Freedom Force Versus The Third Reich
Like Freedom Force, expect a Freedom Versus The Third Reich game lair very soon. In the meantime, feel free to let us know what you think about this impressive sequel on its gamer review page.

First UMMORPG Canceled
Last month, Mutable Realms decided to pull the plug on the highly touted first UMMORPG, Wish. For those of you getting tired of all the letters in front of RPG, UMMORPG stands for Ultra Massive Multiplayer Online RPG. The “Ultra” part meant that the game was supposed to allow more than 10,000 players in a single seamless world. The only reason that has been given is that data during beta testing was not good. Take note that the beta test did not last very long.
What does this mean for MMORPGs in general? Not too much since Wish was attempting something different but ultimately failed. According to their website, 68,000 players had signed up so it could have been a case of not being able to support as many players as they had anticipated.
If you played the beta test of Wish and you want give your feelings on it, you can do so on its review page.
City of Heroes
Free Model At Anarchy Online
The free model at Anarchy Online that has been extended to 2006 continues to help strengthen the game’s already considerable customer base. Along with the upcoming release of Guild Wars, this move by Anarchy Online could be a sign of things to come in the MMORPG Arena. Simply put, some gamers are sick of monthly fees and these two games are attempting to satisfy those gamers.
New Owner For Horizons
Tulga Games LLC has purchased the assets of the company that used to own Horizons, Artifact Entertainment. Since Artifact Entertainment was in bankruptcy, this is definitely a good sign for Horizons players during a time when quite a large number of MMORPGs are either failing or are being canceled in development.
New Review Format
In order to be more compatible with the Gamer Review Directory, GameOgre.com will now rate games on a scale of 1 to 10 clubs instead of 1 to 5 stars. This change will allow more accurate scores to be given. That said, previous Review scores have been changed to the new scoring system as well.

World of Warcraft Frowns on Outside Trading of Items
Unlike most other major MMORPGs, do not expect to find a large market for World of Warcraft goods on the Internet. Blizzard has taken a firm stance against the buying and selling of World of Warcraft’s in-game items. In short, both buyers and sellers will risk their accounts and more by participating in real money trades outside of the game.
New MMORPG Top Ten
EverQuest 2 didn’t have long on top of Game Ogre’s Top Ten MMORPG list because World of Warcraft has already bumped it down a peg. WoW is simply one of the best MMORPGs ever because it does so many things well all at once like graphics, game play, low learning curve, and user-friendly interface. PlanetSide has been knocked from the list.
FreeWorld Alpha Test
The following is from Draconus of FreeWorld
We are happy to announce that the next Alpha Test phase will open on the 15th of December.

We would like to remind everyone that this is a ALPHA TEST and not a Beta. Many things in the game will change before the final product and many game play systems and final art have not been added to the game yet. If you are looking to play test a game and help with ideas and bug finding then this is the opportunity you have been looking for. If your more interested in trying the game when it is more stable and a more polished product then we would suggest waiting tell the beta test.
I can’t wait to see you all in game and always KEEP FREEWORLDING!!!

Dawn of the Half-Life 2 Era
With Half-Life 2 being released tomorrow, look for online gaming to be taken to the next level. Yes Doom 3 was a very important online shooter but it will not have the same overall impact that Half-Life 2 will. When it comes to modding and online play, Half-Life 2 is simply in a class all its own. Look for Half-Life 2 to climb to the top of GameOgre.com’s Top Ten Internet Games list very soon. In fact, HL2 is already ranked in our Review Directory’s Top Ten with a 9.25 rating as of this writing.
Latest Dark Ages of Camelot Expansion

EverQuest 2 has leaped to the top of the heap while City of Heroes climbed several places the claim the second highest ranking. Anarchy Online fell due to Alien Invasion not being near of the expansion that Shadowlands was.
Two New Lairs Added
Today GameOgre.com has added two new lairs, Developer Interviews and Online Game News. The Online Game News Lair will be in addition to the popular Interesting Fact feature on the main page.
