Blizzard's Titan, City of Steam, Marvel Heroes and more! - The Daily XP May 29th
Blizzard is officially hitting the reset button on the planned MMORPG, Project Titan. The project aimed to be the companies' follow-up to the widely successful World of Warcraft. Blizzard still hopes plans will pan out, but it will now be with a core group of 30 developers, rather than the hundred individuals previously working on the project. The remaining 70 developers have been repurposed at the company for different endeavors. Blizzard is known as an ultimate rumor machine, so some players have been skeptical about the announcement.
Sadly, Blizzard has already confirmed the new by stating, "We?ve always had a highly iterative development process, and the unannounced MMO is no exception. We?ve come to a point where we need to make some large design and technology changes to the game. We?re using this opportunity to shift some of our resources to assist with other projects while the core team adapts our technology and tools to accommodate these new changes. Note that we haven?t announced any dates for the MMO."
The sad truth is that the Titan team will be completely starting over. Now players will have to wait until at least 2016 for the game to be released. People will clearly give the game a try no matter when it's released (look at Duke Nukem Forever). It will be interesting to see how Blizzard and Project Titan hold up though against an exploding MMO genre.

Eight of The Most Memorable MMO Dungeons Ever Designed
Dungeons are a staple of the MMO genre; large-scale challenges requiring co-operation and co-ordination between anywhere from five to a few hundred players to adequately complete. Of course, not all are created equal, and some stand head and shoulders above their peers. Today, I'd like to tip my hat to those few legends, those instances that'll stick with us for years to come as shining examples of how to do dungeons right.
Ten Of The Best MMORPG Songs Ever Heard
In many ways, an MMO is only as good as its music. Many of the best and most memorable moments in an MMO invariably have a song associated with them; a piece of music which brings the memories flooding back the moment it reaches one's ears. Today, I'd like to pay homage to some of those songs - and some of those moments. Here, for your listening pleasure (and in no particular order, I assure you) is a list of some of the best songs ever heard in an MMO.
