Giftsplosion 2014: The Percy Jackson of Christmas Events

Giftsplosion: the Timely Woe of Outdated, Useless Gifts

Hello readers, RayMan36 here with what we've all been waiting for: disappointment. Yes, I'm here to talk about the overly-impossible gift hunt, and maybe what would come out of these presents from the depths unknown, which all of you certainly bought.

DISCLAIMER: You have been juggling a broken teacup with a milkshake straw in your sock while dancing to the Canadian national anthem, all with your iron man costume in your baby pool on your 8th birthday party only if it was July 20th and it was a full moon. Otherwise, just pay me $40,000.

Place Review: TPS15

TPS 14_ImageRecently, I have been finding myself play a game - quite well known - 'TPS 15'. Good game, nice, fun; very competitive. I mean, it's fun: ROBLOX engines are the only problem.

Inactivity Problems

Hello Roblox News, recently you may have noticed a large dip within the amount of content produced at Roblox News; I am going to tell you why. I haven't had much time. That's the reason, I'm very busy with exams, and my interest in ROBLOX has gone down recently because I haven't been able to do much. I will start rebuilding ROBLOX News over the christmas period, be wary of posts that are soon to come. :D

The Top 4 Murder Games on ROBLOX


Introduction

"So far, there's only 4 well-made murder games on ROBLOX"


Hello, my name is Darkie Roblox and today we're gonna list the top 4 murder games on ROBLOX. Let's start off on how murder games work.


How Murder Games Work 

The murder games has same purpose. Each of them are not exactly the same. I will not gonna say it all.


People will have random character name and outfit when they are on the round. Except from TT.


Innocents must survive the round. They must work each other to find out who's the murderer. They can call the sheriff for help if the murderer is already known.

Sheriff has a gun called "revolver". The sheriff must find out who and kill the murderer to win the round.

Murderer has a knife. The murderer must kill everyone and be stealthy to prevent not being caught by the innocents or they will call the sheriff for help.

(They are listed in descending order.)

Roblox: Game Studios.

Yes, I will make a game review. I just feel that this is an article I think people will like. Anyways, hello, my name is xLando and today I will 'tell' you about game studios, what they are, and how they work.

ROBLOX Chat Exploit Patch

Recently on ROBLOX with the new Chat Update, ROBLOX added a patch to the chat. They have established a system looking for any type of coding such as a sentence starting with: function(), etc.
This can protect ROBLOX Users on day to day basis to protect them from any exploiters in their game, yet ROBLOX hasn't successfully patched Cheat Engine, hopefully ROBLOX Engineers and Administrators will find a solution to completely protect our servers and games we create. Therefor in conclusion we all know that ROBLOX is planning a solution.

Hello!

ROBLOX Game Review: Goat Simulator

PLEASE NOTE: This is a ROBLOX version of the original game. If you are here for the real "Goat Simulator" which has all the information about the game, please click here.

Hello, my name is Darkie Roblox and i am a Game Journalist of RN. My ROBLOX user is lilsal5. You can add me if you want. Heard about the ROBLOX version of goat simulator? Here it is and we are now reviewing it!

About

Goat Simulator is a ROBLOX version of the original game and it's being developed by kenami. The game can be only played by paying 25 R$ due to the early development of the game. Like the real game, the player controls the goat which has the ability to stick objects to it's tongue by licking them, ram into objects and more! Rated 90% by most testers of the game, Goat Simulator is improving itself to make it's game fun to play. Made for fun like destroying stuff, making fun of NPCs and more.

Catalog Item Review - CotM: October Pumpkin Spice Chicken

Happy Halloween!


CoTM: October Pumpkin Spice Chicken

Price: 1,000R$
The price of this item seems fine giving that it is only onsale for Halloween & the last day of October. However, if you look at the Commentary, you will see numerous people complaining about the price. In my opinion, I think the price is just fine providing it increases by 100R$ each month as far as I know.
Category: Hat

Limited: No
This item was released as a non-limited. I think this will go limited next Halloween. The least ROBLOX can do is have this item make another appearance next Halloween if it doesn't go limited.


Looks: 5/10
If you're a CoTM chicken fan, this is the item for you! It can go well with other Halloween-themed items that ROBLOX has released.

Texture: 6/10

The texture is going to get a 6/10. I was expecting a black and orange color-scheme, but since it is Halloween, the chicken is resembling a pumpkin.

Mesh: 10/10

The mesh is a revamped version of Telamon's Chicken Suit and in my opinion looks better.



Overall: 7/10
I feel that the rating of 7/10 fits this item well. This item is not too bad.

Do I recommend this?: YES!
It is Halloween and it is the last day of October. You have less than 24 hours to get your hands on this item! This item was supposed to be released earlier in October, so you have limited time to get your hands on it before November. Since people will be busy trick-or-treating for Halloween and doing other things such as parties, I believe this won't have many sales. Go go go!




Item Description:

Everybody loves pumpkin spice. Why not chicken? October's Chicken of the Month.

Notes:
The name of the hat and the description references Starbucks and the famous Pumpkin Spice flavor that companies are introducing all throughout this month.

Catalog Item Review: Villainous Jack

Hi again everyone! I will be reviewing a recent addition to the Halloween-themed items on the catalog.


Villainous Jack

Price: 1,000R$
The price of this item seems a little outrageous.

Category: Hat

Limited: No
This item is not limited at the moment and I don't think it ever will go limited. However, it may make another appearance in next year's Halloween.


Looks: 2.5/10
This item seems below average for a Halloween-themed ROBLOX item. I don't think you'll wear this on your character and it won't go well with any item combinations. The teeth ruined most of the look, which therefore I am giving this item's look a 2.5/10.

Texture: 3/10
This texture is going to get a 3/10. I'm choosing 3/10 for the texture because the colors don't really match well together. If the eyes were red instead of blue, I can imagine it looking better.

Mesh: 8/10
This mesh resembles a pumpkin with a collar and without a texture you can guess what it is. The mesh seems pretty well done.

Overall: 4.5/10
This item's overall rating is a 4.5/10. I feel that this rating fits the item well. ROBLOX did not do well on this item and I expect better in the future. I calculated this overall rating by adding 2.5+3+8 and dividing 13.5 / 3 = 4.5.

Do I recommend this?: Not really.
This really depends on if you like it or not. If you're a Halloween-rounded person, then this is the item for you. If you just want general items for your character, I wouldn't really recommend it. Save yourself R$ for future items.

Description:


That treacherous Jack with his villainous dark magic just cannot be stopped.

Online dating in Roblox: The truth.

Roblox Online dating: The truth.

Now, first of all, this review is going to be like my OTHER review on ROBLOX success (Which is going to be published soon, I hope.) Also, RN and I do not endorse online dating in ROBLOX, and we do not approve of it.

First of all, let's understand the concept of what online dating in roblox is. People who online date on roblox (referred to as ODer's by some.) Games, such as the different town of robloxia, endorse this  kind of thing. People commonly have relationships with complete untrustworthy strangers. Of course, most people have come to disagree with online dating, but some disregard all the hate, and keep on doing it. So I am going to list some of the reasons why I think people do it. Also, I recently had a "falling out" with my girlfriend, so I  may seem harsh on online daters, I apologize in advance.

Disclaimer:
Online dating anywhere is hazardous, do not trust anyone online, for they can always lie. NEVER give out personal information to strangers via ROBLOX.

1. They are children.  
All Irony about this aside, people who aren't old enough to date, wish to date, but can only do it on roblox. Multiple traits of a person who commonly Online dates, is someone who has poor grammar and writing/speaking skills. Some other key evidence is that they dress, and act in an immature, and improper fashion

2.They feel,look, and act differently on ROBLOX.
Another fact is that people who are young generally feel more insecure about their looks, (more tweens-teens, but you get the idea.) and fake it all on roblox. So, say you weren'ts an athlete, you might play sports on ROBLOX to create a small illusion that you are. Based on this, people who try to have relationships on roblox tend to act and look a different way in real life. For example, a sane human being would not go on the street and yell "123 for a boyfriend!" over and over.


Obviously, no one who plays ROBLOX is likely to be able to dress like this in real life.











3. They are alone and out of options/unable to find "love"
This option is my least favorite, since I think most people are capable of finding someone in this world of nearly two billion, who likes them for them. Of course, some people just can't connect with others, so the y turn to a world where they can be someone their not, a world in where anything is possible no matter how you act or look in real life. It is also unlikely, since almost all if not all roblox users sign up to use roblox as their dating site.


Thank you for reading my short article on one of the aspects of ROBLOX, have a wonderful day.

P.S
Still here? Great! I just wanted to say thank you. To all my readers, to everyone who has supported me. Not only in real life, but on ROBLOX. And I would like to thank a special few,

  • Arbirator. This wonderful man accepted me into ROBLOX news and helped me become the journalist I am today.
  • Zakkeh. Zak, without your tedious corrections to my faults,  I would have never survived here at RN.
  • CYNICALCHRIS. Cyn, my old friend, we started at the bottom, now we're here. You have always been a great friend, good luck. Keep on trucking!
  • Finally, I would like to dedicate this article to my intern, Razecept. I hope to teach you much about this new and exiting world of ROBLOX journalism.

RŌBLOX Hat Review: Ghosdeeri



                                    After 1 ½ years, through several holiday sales, DarkGenex's Ghosdeeri: The Cursed Spirit was published. On the last day of this year's BLOXtober 13 Days of Gifts, Big Gift of the Phantom Hunter came across us, and Ghosdeeri happened to be the result. The hat is the same as the retexture, expect Roblox added some blue smoke to jazz it up a little bit.

Game Review: BLOODFEST

Hello, I am Darkie Roblox. I haven't introduced myself yet. My roblox username is lilsal5. You can add me if you wish. I am the new Game Journalist here at Roblox News. This is my first game review. I hope you enjoy!

You probably saw a game called "BLOODFEST". A zombie-shooting game that became popular about a week ago. This game is one of the runner ups of the Game Creation Challenge. The gameplay and the features in this game are outstanding!

Place Review: Twisted Murderer

It's another murder game, and one that has been here for quite a while now (actually for almost a month). For those of you who don't know what I'm referring to (or are too busy playing The Mad Murderer, Murder Mystery, or some other game), I'm talking about Twisted Murderer. Made by taymaster (creator of games like Twisted Racing and Twisted Plastic 2), let's see just how twisted this game is! (Note: This review [or comparison] will focus on the differences between Murder Mystery, The Mad Murderer and Twisted Murderer. Also, this review was written before the release of the Spooky Update, and thus will not cover the things in the update.)

Hallow's Eve - Bloxtober Event Full Review (Part 1)

It's that time of the year again: Bloxtober! Last year, the ROBLOX Games Team brought us "The Witching Hour". This year, the Games team has brought us "Hallow's Eve". We all knew it was coming, and let's be honest, we were expecting something that lacked excitement and entertainment. I guess you can see we were wrong!

A Promotion and a New Event!

Hello readers of Roblox News. Some of you may know me, some of you way not. My name is CYNICALCHRIS, and I've worked here at Roblox News for some time now. I started out as a game journalist, and I was just recently promoted to "Game Journalism Manager" thanks to Zakkeh! I very much appreciate the promotion. I had the idea of making a new event for Roblox News, so let's talk about that!

New Intern! [Divyesh]

DivyeshI could start out by saying that my name is Divyesh and that I am an intern at Roblox News but you probably already know that. I bet you search my name on the Roblox website every day and stalk my profile until my status says "online". I would go so far to even venture a guess that you probably have tried to send me a friend request and maybe even tried to invite me to a party. Satire aside, I'm extremely excited to be writing for Roblox News and cannot wait to share what I want to bring to the entire Roblox News community. 

Outside of Roblox, I usually go to school, play tennis, compete at national debate tournaments, and sleep - I'm so normal right there!

On Roblox, I'm a Lua scripter and a hardcore designer, so I hope to  teach people Lua operations so they can be make their own successful titles. I'll also go into constructive analysis of a wide variety of games and break down the elements that all successful games have in common. The end goal is that readers will learn new ways to make their games more engaging and more fun in every way possible. 

I'm hoping the internship with Roblox News will help me connect with a wide variety of aspiring Roblox developers. I hope to meeting all of you very soon, and I'm extremely excited to be writing articles that everyone can see. 

Thanks,

~Divyesh

Halloween Gift Guessers: Mystical Gift of the Arbor

May the gifts of the season continue to grow.

Day 4 came with the first questionable gift - what it contains is honestly a mystery to me. Oh, and sorry about the late post today - the gift came out pretty early and I wasn't home at all today. Anyways, this is the Mystical Gift of the Arbor, and it's basically a tree stump with an axe in it and a bow on the side - it's 250 Robux, and I'm somewhat clueless as to what this gift contains.

A New Opportunity

Hello everyone, I am currently the Editor of Roblox News while Arbirator is away, and I am looking for a manager, I need department managers. Apply here:

Roblox Place review: ROBLOX Success

Greetings dear readers, my name is xLando, and in the midst of my inactivity I bring you an article to celebrate our beloved Zakkeh. Congratulations, Zak, you have thought me almost everything I come to now know and utilize in Roblox News. Best wishes, xLando.


Now, this isn't a run-of-the-mill game/place review, it's something new, I like new, bold, forever wild and never tamed. Kidding, naturally, but this is going to be a type of article when I review Roblox and more specifically, Roblox game's and their nature. I will now be talking about the mentality of success, the feeling of making the front page and having a successful page, and what it truly means.

Roblox: Games with 20 Million Visits


Sword Fighting Tournament_ImageSo, guys here is just an article to update people on the Most Popular Games of All Time - The Top 20. All this article will do will be to list the Top 20 games, giving each a brief description + a lot of information, some of which may be irrelevant to what you need to know to play the game.

The stats will change, but this is just an update. I will put capitals in names, even if they don't have capitals because I am very pedantic.

Interview with Clan Battle Winners: owen0202!

owen02021.How did you choose the members that make up your 100 strong clan? Was there special criteria?

The effort was lead by our Head Battle Overseer VideoGame5, along with our other colonels they were in charge of selecting whom was eligible for the clan. Unfortunately me and SilentSwords couldn't get too involved because we are very busy working on our next big shooter 'Hex'. One thing we have always been very serious about in WIJ is that we don't use mercenaries and everybody who took part was a real member of WIJ. If you were in WIJ, had the drive to be active and knew how to fight there was a pretty good chance you were going to be selected.

Top Catalog Items of the Week: 14/09/14

Hi there! Welcome to a new Roblox News series where we scour the catalog for the single best hat and gear item released in the last seven days (it may also include packages and faces, but this depends on how many have been released). To qualify for this prestigious position, the items will have had to be on-sale in the ROBLOX catalog in the past week so it could be obtained - collectible items are eligable to be chosen. This means items that have special requirements such as achievement rewards, gamecard exclusives and contest prizes are not eligable to be chosen.

The point of these articles is to highlight the very best official ROBLOX content and to help those on strict robux budgets get the best items can money can buy at reasonable prices. Factors that will influence our final choices are the look and variety of the items, and how they appear on a ROBLOXian character, but also their price (value for money) and their abilities if they are a gear item. So without further ado, let's get into our first article!

Welcome ZeTripod: your moderately new Intern!

Hello all curious Robloxians, and welcome to the long awaited arrive of my Bio! I am ZeTripod: your basic, yet random, and curious enough ROBLOXian to join this Blog!
ZeTripod
I started playing Roblox in 2009, when I was in fifth grade. I was on my old profile back then, miniman2605. My friend got me hooked when a new Halo RPG came out, resulting in explosions, Bloxxed Robloxians, and of course, sparked my love for team vs. team wars. This lead to my love of Groups, and I tend to become very sucked into groups very easily. I accept Friend Requests often, Answer all PM's and am currently working on Re-vamping my group, Infesco Armed Forces. But anyways, you guys aren't here to hear about that! Here is my life in a nutshell...

Building Contests Have Returned!

Ayeeee, pbjms here, and with the return of building contests, you also get the return of me! I haven't written a post in ages, mainly because I've been busy with life, or I just didn't feel like writing anything, because you know, 5 minutes of writing is too much, right?

Anyway, back during a BLOXCast in December of 2013, your favorite fella pbjms asked a wonderful question: Will building contests ever make a return? And Arbirator has been asking this question long before this, since the dawn of time it would seem. Now, with my luck, the question wasn't answered on the BLOXCast. But don't fear my friends, because it was answered in a follow-up Blog Post! So basically, they said that Building Contests will come back at some point, but they just need to figure out how to balance them out.

PaleEclipse: New Summer Intern!

Hi, I'm Pale a new summer intern at Roblox news.

I joined in 2013, when a friend of mine was moving away he gave me my ROBOX account as a present.As soon as I started playing the first game I played was Paintball, by daxter33. I was hooked on it, I played it every day for atleast a couple of months before I got builders club.
Now I'm more into GFX designing than anything, I enjoy it and find myself spending more time doing GFX designing for people than I do playing games with friends. I enjoy making Profile Thumbnails the most as I can play around with the effects on Paint dot Net. And I love seeing how good the finished product is.

Labor Day Weekend Sale: Day 4

Day 4 was perhaps the most pivotal day of the entire sale: it was actually Labor Day! On this day we saw a number of new hats and gear items, and a couple of limiteds. Whilst it wasn't the most exciting selection, it was still a fine way to end the four-day long holiday sale. Unfortunately there weren't many discounted items - but most of those were added at the weekend so that users had the most time possible to purchase them. The new items themselves weren't fantastic, but they served a purpose. Let's get into the summary!


Monday, September 1, 2014

Labor Day Weekend Sale: Day 3

As the third day of the Labor Day sale arrives, it starts off with disappointment, and progressively gets better. For the third day we see new hats, gears, discounts, old items going limited, and even a brand new face! Let's get to the items, shall we?


Sunday, August 31, 2014

Labor Day Weekend Sale: Day 2


With a multitude of items made limited, put on sale, and new versions of old gear, there is something for everyone (provided you have a small amount of robux). I will be listing the items that are featuring in this catalog sale and will be giving them a rating and a recommendation as to whether I would purchase them or not. Of course, as I am writing this in the opinionated style of a reviewer, you may take this in the subjective manner that is intended. You are welcome to make your own decisions on whether a sale item is for you or not. I will just be aiming to look for good value-for-money traits. So let us get into this second overview!

Meet razecpt, Your New Intern!

Hello, I’m razecpt a summer intern here at Roblox News.


 I found roblox back in 2010 when I saw a friend playing it, So I made an account. As soon as I started I got hooked to the idea of user made games. So I made several accounts finally settling on razecpt. I played lots of games back then: Flight simulators, Obbys (it got old really fast), tycoons and First Person Shooters. Now I’m more of a builder.


Editorial: Overall Impressions of the Summer Games


So it's nearly been a month since the ROBLOX Summer Games ended and it's about time I shared my thoughts on the event: both the positive and negatives aspects which users and myself have noted. I will be breaking down my thoughts on the different sections that made up the Summer Games, including: the user-sourced games chosen, the gameplay, the prizes, and of course the somewhat controversial use of playerpoints and an exclusive leaderboard system to calculate winners. During this article, I will be making some comparisons to other official ROBLOX events, but please note I will be judging the event purely on its own merits.


Before we dig in, let us first take a step back and discuss the background of the event itself. Following in the footsteps of the largely successful ROBLOX Winter Games which could be played throughout February 2014, the Summer Games sought to build on its achievements. This Summer's event utilised the new 'Playerpoints' introduced by the ROBOX team - points earned in-game, distributed by the developer as they see fit for in-game activities and achievements. Each game has a pot of playerpoints to distribute, with the exact number of points dictated by the amount of Robux spent by players on things such as game passes and consumables. This means the playerpoints pots can de facto run-out, an issue I will be covering later in this editorial. Playerpoints earned are displayed on player profiles next to the white star symbol and players are placed on a leaderboard for weekly, monthly, and all-time playerpoint scores. The key similarity with the Winter Games is that the games chosen were user-created. The main difference is that these games were not purpose built for the Summer Games like some of those featured in the Winter Games, but already existed before the event. However, that's enough background. Time to get into the editorial!

Place review: Attack On Titan [Pre-Alpha]

I live in the Lone Star state (Texas), I am experienced Writer as I've won many awards, at my school for my writing. I am also a Front End Web Developer, If you don't know what that is, it's a developer who helps design the website in the front end, sliders, fonts. Etc.   In my free time I enjoy biking and BMXing at my Local track. (won many awards). 


Interns: Purple vs. Green

We're all looking forward to meeting our interns, and possible future staff. When you saw the intern post you probably thought 'same old same old' - but actually, this year there is a twist! Intrigued? You should be..

SmashBlox: The New Platformer on the Block


The platformer-fighter game genre is relatively new, only being around since 1999, yet it's now one of the most beloved and recognizable game types of all time. Haven't heard of it? Maybe you've heard of Super Smash Bros - the first, most successful, and arguably best platformer-fighter which takes memorable characters from Nintendo franchises (and some third party), pits them against each other on a multitude of stages with references to all of the deep corners of Nintendo's history.

SimplestLogic: New Intern 2014

Hello everyone. I am a new summer intern at Roblox News. I saw other interns writing and introduction about themselves, so I thought I would make one too. I am looking forward to the possibility of working at RN for a full-time job as a catalog analyst.

Changes for the Worst - Info

Hello, this is just telling everyone a few things about the CfoW Weekly articles. I just want to set a couple of things straight to start this article.

Firstly, for the FSA article I did point out that it was a personal experience, and I was hurt by being exiled. I also would like to say, although I got my rank quickly, I still put time and effort in to help the group and by a week or so later, I had already earned it properly.

Secondly, I don't mind getting hate, I see it as no big deal. Yet, although hate is no biggie, using cuss words and swear words is not welcome on the Roblox News website, so please refrain from using them.

Alright, the Changes for the Worst Weekly articles are a brand new thing brought in only this Tuesday. I, obviously, cannot just randomly pick a group and criticize it. Instead, I need YOU to send in stories from your own personal experiences and I will choose one on a weekly basis to upload onto here as an article.

Remember, the topic must be either about:-
The Leader going/gone corrupt
HRs AA'ing/Bullying/etc
Groups deteriorating as a whole

Thank you, that is all. Please send in your personal experiences NOW! - Do this via PM'ing Prolixen.

I need to get some Private Messages please!
