- Hello RN Readers! Rob498 here, and I'm here today to give you an exclusive sneak peek into the TheGamer101's upcoming game, Swordfighting Minigames...
- The game is being built by TheGamer101 and ColdEfficiency and as of now is about 40% completed. And at this moment there are about 10 minigames, TheGamer101 hopes to have about 15 minigames when it's released.
- There are 10 swords and they are all around the same damage area, because if you do had someone with a Darkheart against someone with a normal sword it wouldn't be fair.
- When released, TheGamer101 will add in badges, VIPs, and more minigames over time. There has be no official release date yet, but when released, it will be hopefully a great addition and hit to the front page.
- As a Beta Tester and being lucky enough to test this game, and managed to record a minigame on it, take a look:

Recently a special hat simply called 'evil duck' was released to the catalog by brighteyes. As many 2008 players may know, this is a retexture and a remesh of the original epic duck hat. This was brought out by ROBLOX on april fools day and came out of the purple mystery box. So what lays in store for ROBLOXians over the coming days? What could this duck mean? What could happen? Post your questions and your own ideas below!

Yes, I know what your thinking… no one ever thought this was going to happen! But ROBLOX has really been stepping up the pace. In 4 years they have gone from a small community to over 1.4 million users! But there are only so many Windows users out there, and when expanding their range to the mac platform, they increased their chance of growth. More players mean more fun games and money to fund ROBLOX to hire staff to keep creating cool new features.
Although so many users demanded this step, it will take a while to get it up to the same standards as on a windows computer. The ROBLOX staff had to recompile their code to a whole new language, Objective-C. Mater of fact, that’s what I wrote my ROBLOX iPod applications in.
See a preview of this Mac version in the screenshot below. I am in one or arbirator’s places. Most of the features and appearance is the same, but there are some differences like the black chat bar and mac window. Some features are also still limited, like no screen videos and no edit mode.
Above is a screenshot of playing ROBLOX on a Mac.
The ROBLOX Icon still looks the same in the Mac dock. (Below)
Be sure to check out my ROBLOX Applications in the Apple App Store (iTunes). All you have to do is search “ROBLOX” or “Double Trouble Studio”.

So the much anticipated Dominus has arrived! Many ROBLOXians claimed that they had the texture for this hat, but were exposed to be false. Much more mystery surrounded this hat compared to the other Dominus hats. This is obviously because of Seth Desub. I think the price wasn't too bad and I actually really like the texture. So, what do you guys think about it? Win or fail? Comment below!

So what does he moderate? Briguy moderates images and the ROBLOX forums. It is important that images are thoroughly checked for any inappropriate content, as many other users may see and use this image. It is also very important that the forums are moderated as what posted there, if not moderated will stay there forever, meaning anyone on ROBLOX can see it. So welcome Briguy as a mod, and congratulate him on getting the job!

Hio guys. Over the weekend ROBLOX has released lots of new Knight themed hats. The Medieval theme remains one of the most popular themes of ROBLOX, which hundreds of user built castles and Medieval villages. So to add to his brilliant theme, here is a batch of new hats!
But not to forget the new Shadow dancer gear which ingame doubles out as dual wield swords! With two blades and a fair amount of damage delt, it makes a perfect weapon for any bold adventurer!

This new app is basicly an ipod compatible version of the ROBLOX wiki and Clockworks calculator. It comes with cool app logos and nicely designed, easy to use GUI. It provides a faster way to visit these websites and a whole app for it! Made by ROBLOX User cowbear16, it is unclear whether it will be made official or not by the ROBLOX Team. So when it is avaible on the store, why not give it a try?
Info on when it will be available will be published shortly!

Having 1 million Robux, the virtual currency used in ROBLOX, makes the teen the richest player in the history of the virtual game created by the San Mateo company of the same name. Deesub, from Lawndale, Calif., had the chance to not only become a millionaire but meet those who put together the game he enjoys as part of a wish recently granted by the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which grants wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions.
Deesub spends lots of time in the hospital, said his father Dusdee who goes by Luke.
“He’s not usually talkative,” his mom, Suree Deesub, added.
But that was not the case Thursday.
Deesub spent four hours at the San Mateo business as an honorary staff member learning the ins and outs of the game, getting a sneak peak of unreleased features and helping design a hooded hat, called dominus frigidus, which will be sold in the world.
“Can I buy it first?” an eager Deesub asked his partner in design, Market Manager Christina McGrath, who promised to let him know before it was released for sale.
Deesub plays ROBLOX often. The online kids gaming site allows players to be the architects of their own world. Players can build social hangouts, invite others to party, talk online and purchase items — which is where the Robux comes in handy.
Before Thursday, Deesub had about 600 Robux. When he returns home this weekend, Deesub can start a shopping spree.
“I play ROBLOX a lot. I was living a really happy life. And I really didn’t want anything else,” Deesub said when asked why he chose this wish.
Deesub asked for the cash and the visit was an extra special treat. And to the teen, these guys were rock stars. After sitting in on a development meeting, he collected the business card from CEO David Baszucki, whom Deesub had sign his business card. This move started a larger collection. Deesub asked for the business card and autograph of all 25 employees. Those without cards readily available signed a piece of paper, many adding their in-world user name.
“I’d stay at this office all day long if I could,” Deesub said while reviewing his new business card collection.
Unless ROBLOX experienced a lot of inflation, Deesub thinks the money will last him a long time, which also means his dad won’t be asked to provide access to his credit card anytime soon.
I think this was great, and Telamon should be praised for the work he is doing, with both the Red Cross and make a wish. I salute you sir!
