Editorial: Spotlight of Silence [BETA]

>OBEY<_ImageSingle-player games are a rare occurrence on ROBLOX, with a more general focus on massive-multiplayer experiences and ever-growing server sizes (we are up to 50 now!) in games such as Reason 2 Die and many group personal servers.

However, Silence, a game created by Venvious exploded onto the scene, appearing near the top of the popular games category for a period of time. At the time of writing it has received 135,064 plays, has been favourited 8,119 times, and has a very high approval rating with 3,660 thumbs up and 403 thumbs down

The Mysterious BLOXcon Gifts: The Good and Bad

This year at Virtual BLOXcon 2014, ROBLOX decided to try something different and launched three different mystery gifts during the BLOXcon livestream. Each gift was a priced item (like the Halloween gifts) that were available for a limited time. Now that all three gifts have opened after the midnight sale, two of them have had positive reception while the final one hasn't.

Reason 2 Die: The Ultimate Guide and Review

Disclaimer: This review may seem awkward in places since most of it has been done and I've only just now been able to finish it up and make it more up to date.

Reason 2 Die should be a game that is familiar to any veteran ROBLOX member, the member originally named PlaceBuilder appeared late last year under a new alias, PlaceRebuilder. See, the original Reason 2 Die was broken after ROBLOX got rid of user meshes and some updates so PlaceBuilder came back from the grave and gave the game new life with this new reincarnation of the game...even though he kicked the bucket around Christmas of 2013, he's back after about 3-4 months and the game is back on the front page after actually getting updates again!

Moan-Up Video Review: Terror in Bikini Bottom

Terror in Bikini Bottom is, and will always be awful. I doubt any updates will come to this game that will make it even the slightest appealing.

Thanks for watching

Moan-up Place Review: Different Town of Robloxia

Different Town of RobloxiaI'm unsure as to what persuaded the 8,000 people thumbs up this game? It is stupidity - nobody knows that the game was created by 1dev2, and they are giving this guy all the credit. It's the exact same game, but with the word 'different' in the title instead of 'welcome'. Oh yeah, that's a genius idea. But because half the population of that game are either online-daters or immature children, it gets to the front page. Jolly good fun.

Roblox LEGO Contest

Yes, you read that correctly! You could potentially be the the creator behind the next LEGO set, and it could be a ROBLOX one!

ROBLOX Group: The Federal States of America

Hello guys, this article is just talking about an active, growing group.

The Federal States of America (or FSA) is a group led by SirMackSmith. After speaking to him for a short while at FSA's main fort, I got this quote from him,

"FSA, the first group of it started in 2012, and I'd been its Builder since September that year. FSA was at its height of 6000 members, but then the previous owner shut it down. My 2nd in command (JavierM16) and I actually came back to Roblox just to rebuild FSA and then we started the current group on 3/16/2014, so we're just under 3 months old. All me and Javier want is to recreate the group that so many people loved, and we're trying our best - working day in and day out to make sure the group runs smooth and is moving in the right direction."

It is a bit of a mouthful, but there is the story behind FSA and unlike so many other groups, this story wasn't created out of the imagination but actually happened. SirMackSmith and JavierM16 along with others actually got to see this happen firsthand, going through the ups and the downs.

Roblox News: Youtube Channel

Our YouTube channel has now been completely rearranged and reorganised. It is now a lot more firm, smooth, and we produce high-quality YouTube videos on it.

All of our previous Live Streams will henceforth be archived on YouTube and Twitch now. This is going to be something so that anybody who misses our Live Streams due to the random timing or the absence of time to do so, you can always watch them on YouTube.

Also, we will be allowing the public into the live stream, however you will have to complete a sign-up poll if you wish to be included in one of our live streams.
