DragonFable

What wood you do? Most of the human citizens have accepted The Rose, with some even welcoming the chance to gain an advantage over magical beings. But not everyone trusts the Rose…even some within their own ranks! Cinquefoil will send you into the depths of the huge stronghold being built in the north of Surewood, the Rosewood. What books will you find? What confiscated weapons do the Rose keep locked up in their armory? Cin knows who you are... but just who, exactly, is he?

MechQuest

The Shadowscythe Showdown has begun! Report to the Queenadent at the War Camp to begin your first mission. Check out the new 1000-NG versions of the Corrupted House mechas, or if you have an original, enjoy the new power buffs! Also remember to grab a commemorative head before this special version goes rare…forever!

AdventureQuest Classic

Paladins versus Necromancers: the ultimate rivalry! The Paladin Order wishes to cleanse the world of Undead, while Necromancers wish to cover the land in an Undead plague. Both sides have battled on for so long that many have given up any hope of the war ever ending.... until now. You are the Chosen One who will decide which side emerges victorious.... and which side faces extinction!

Knightmare
Knightmare: AQW isn't their only game they kept up to date, AQ classic has had weekly game updates since the beginning over 10 years ago
Pyromanticore
Pyromanticore: Awesome you've played that long? Well, I only played for like at 2012-2013 and I'm hoping that the game is gonna last forever :)
Artix
Artix: Thank you! The game studio celebrated its 10th Year Anniversary last October. It is pretty crazy that we have been updating almost all of the games weekly since we started! (10 years!? A good number of our new players are younger than the game studio!)

jakemaster1390
jakemaster1390: Go To AQW. I love the derpy fight scene. I think they should keep that scene as something that can be unlocked after finshing the quest. I dont think that scene should ever be erased, but kept as something funny.

Pyromanticore
Pyromanticore: I'd like it if they had a derpy cutscene and a NORMAL cutscene for AQW and that it wasn't a member only location. But otherwise okay :D.

Artix
Artix: They highly beloved "Derpy" cutscene was done as an emergency solution to the crisis that AQWorlds animator Ghost, lost his power due to a severe storm in Canada. Unable to boot his computer or send the files the team made the alternative cutscene. Next week, both the real version of the cutscene and this special version will be available.
Colossus
Colossus: ERR MAH DERP! That cutscene is so epic! I seriously agree with jakemaster. That's classic, man. Absolutely hilarious.

JeffTechnoWiz
JeffTechnoWiz: For AQW. It was best to have no cutscene instead of a poorly done and rushed one. Yes Ghost couldn't have done it. But it messed up the mood. That the story was trying to set up.

Entro
Entro: The DERP cutscenes were their to be humurous, don't complain and laugh every once in a while K?
JeffTechnoWiz
JeffTechnoWiz: I am guessing you blocked out the part. About it messing up the mood. FOr a serious story. That involed the king? Countlses warriosr being sent to there deaths to keep it under control? And Instead we get this poorly done cutsense. That destorys the ability to take this little story serious? I am guessing you like the idea of laughing out loud. During a major battle in a action movie? Even those it not called for?
Tuskasami
Tuskasami: For Thunder forge you guys should make 2 classes. A Darkblood Bloodmancer and some type of golden onslaught one.

Glenn
Glenn: In order of the listings here: When is the decks customizable in oversoul? When is punt and a non-derpy cutscrene coming out in adventure quest worlds? How come the dragonlord class in dragonfable doesn't gain power like doom knight? How come mechquest has so low level stuff for their verified weapon shops? And what happens to the paladin or necromancer class after this war?

Pyromanticore
Pyromanticore: Hey guys I think there's a bug at the button-ins at Battleon, because it says "NEW dungeon :Dragon's lair. Slay the red dragon" Its really weird, because it was the latest release stated there and I know its not.

KJinx101: Love the releases. and on a side note I was missing AQ3D so on my nexus7 tablet[it should be the same on any 7" or 10" tablet] i looked up the AQ3D flythrough trailer on youtube-- it blew me away... it looked way more 3d or popped out of tablet's screen alot more. I loved it
