Game Review: Halloween Zombie Strike

It's that time of the year again! Well, it was that time of the year two weeks ago at least. The annual Roblox Halloween Event! Every year the Halloween event is highly anticipated, and rightly so! In the past we've had great events, I've got fond memories of 2009's paintball and treasure hunt (Yes, two games!) while newer members might have fond memories of 2013's The Witching Hour. With this year's event being made by popular users Davidii, creator of 'Survival 404' and 'Heroes!' and Quenty, creator of 'Whatever Floats Your Boat' hopes were high that this would be another event to remember! But was it? Keep reading to find out!

Possible New Walking Animation Incoming

Hello my readers! Our lord and saviour Builderman has recently tweeted a very interesting video! The video shows a robloxian traversing terrain in a much more realistic way than what we're used to as blocky humanoids. The tweet in question can be found here!

Like most big changes made to Roblox these days I'm guessing this will cause a fair amount of debate in the community, some may appreciate the change where some might be happy with the way it is now. Need I remind you the backlash Roblox experienced during 2010 when introducing the Robloxian 2.0 body?

Replies to Builderman's tweet have been mostly positive, with popular user Polyhex (Creator of Super Bomb Survival) replying with "This is so exciting!!!". However at the same time the Youtube video has a 34% downvote rating (well, 34.02061856%) at the time of writing which isn't awful but isn't great either.

Remember! This is only beta footage and might end up being completely different or it might never happen! Have you guys seen the footage? What do you think about it? Leave a comment telling us your thoughts!

Game Review: Find the Dancing Bananas


Hello, I'm Rudolph101 and today I'll be reading Find the Dancing Bananas by Planet3arth! I didn't go to this game with high expectations. I only played it because as usual, nothing else on the front page really appealed to me that much. That's a shocker right? I found this low down in the games page, like, really far down. I predicted I'd be on this game for a maximum of two minutes, however for once, I was wrong. Searching a map to find dancing fruit turned out to be pretty enjoyable.

It by no means changed my life, I didn't have a different outlook on reality after playing it, I still do not believe in the banana lord, nor do I find myself daydreaming about dancing fruit but it did give me an enjoyable hour or two.

Beta Check This Out: Super ROBLOX 64 Adventure

Welcome to another edition of 'Beta Check This Out' where I preview a promising games in their beta stages which are not currently ready to be reviewed. Due to the sad recent passing of the president of Nintendo, the amazing Satoru Iwata, I thought I'd check out a Nintendo based ROBLOX game! As a result I've chosen to show off PatrickBlox's and Partcline's Super ROBLOX 64 Adventure which is obviously inspired by the Nintendo 64 classic, Super Mario 64, but how does it compare to the original?

Too Many Visits: Canoe Without a Paddle!


    Hello my fellow readers, in this segment called "Too Many Visits" we will look at games that simply don't deserve the fame it got. Canoe Without a Paddle! by smokenchicken is a good example of this. Over its 6 long years of activity the game has raked up over 6 million visits. Before you all start shouting at me "Rudolph! This game is 6 years old! Give it a rest!", the game was updated in May so that's no excuse. Anyway let's begin our in depth look.

Game Review: Speed Run 4

Most of us have played a Speed Run game on ROBLOX. These games involve running at high speeds across many levels jumping from platform to platform without falling off. Speed Run 4 made by Vurse is by far the most popular with hundreds of players playing at any one time during the day. But is Speed Run 4 actually worth playing?

Choose an Event

Duck Hunt '14 Hub [50%]_ImageOne once said the RN Egg Hunt would be here, it seems it never turned up. My job now is I'm going to ask you what event you would like to see us hold here at Roblox News. We could hold an Egg Hunt, our Duck Hunt, or even a new event. I'm giving all the readers the option to choose a new event, or an old one. Please comment your ideas and tell us what you want to see!!

Or-- we could completely forget about the hunting, and make a whole new game, maybe an MMO, or a city-based game, or even something completely random like Marble Ride is. It's you, the fans, choice!

Bargain of the Week: Robot Beanie

   For the week of 3/22, the Bargain of the Week is the Robot Beanie! This beanie is selling for an outraegously, cheap price of 10 robux.

   As of 3/22, the Robot Beanie had about 4,800 sales and 170 favorites.

   The hat effectively works with many hat combinations. For example, wearing this hat with the Midnight Blue Winter Scarf from the 2014 Winter Games would look really nice, in my opinion.

    The Robot Beanie fits tight to your head, so don't try to put an hair under it.

Keep checking back on Arbirator's Roblox News, the next Bargain of the Week will be released very soon!

Have any suggestions for next week's Bargain of the Week? Tell us in the comments, and your suggestion might be taken into consideration!

Roblox Place/Game review MAD Paintball.

Hello all, my name is xLando.

So, MAD Studios (I made a article on them, link right here) have made another game, a sort of successor  to The Mad Murderer, MAD Paintball. It has all the characters we have come to know and love from TMM, but it's an FPS themed game. A bold new step for loleris, Mad Studios' creator.

ROBLOX Hat Review: Knight of the Blood Moon

Today we will be reviewing an obtainable hat for all of those NBC members! Read our article below to find out more on this hat!

All you have to do is go to your My Account settings, and verify your email address by 9 AM PDT November 13th! The hat will be rewarded on or after November 17th. Now that you know how to get this hat, let’s review it!

Mesh: 6/10

The mesh is definitely interesting. On the top, there are two horns that personally do not fit in a knight helmet. The mohawk style hair on the top of the actual helmet, makes this hat look like there is a real soldier inside. The part that protects the head is very nicely detailed, with small bumps.

Texture: 4/10

The texture is really dull. Gray/Black/Brown is the whole color pattern. The holes towards the end of the horn are filled in with black. Basically, all of the hat is mostly brown and gray.

Price: 10/10 (Obtainable)

The hat is obtainable to anyone with or without robux and tickets. All you have to do is follow the steps at the top.

Overall: 7/10

I give this hat a rating over 5 because ROBLOX is giving users without a membership an opportunity to get a free hat. However, ROBLOX could do much better with creating a hat that can be used for everyday characters.

Item Description:

This hat will be awarded to active players after Nov. 17, 2014 who have a verified email address by 9 am PDT Nov. 13, 2014.
