“Revenge Beyond Death; Truth Beyond Legend” Welsh development company, Aberth Studios, offers an impressive first effort with a “haunted farmhouse” traditional point-and-click adventure. Although there are some rough edges, the solid story and interesting puzzles make this visit to Wales worthy of your consideration.
Joystiq reports that Bethesda has festooned the Washington Metro with new ads for Fallout 3, many featuring scenes of a bombed-out Washington and ominous slogans. Looks like the Bethsoft take on the classic RPG series will be as grim and goofy as its predecessor’s.
LittleBigPlanet ‘Giant Calculator’ gameplay MediaMolecule’s LittleBigPlanet is not really a game I’ve been following, due largely to the fact that I have no PS3 and I’m trying to avoid looking for reasons to buy one. But this recently released video of the quirky platformer/world builder/puppet torture arena that is LittleBigPlanet shows the breadth of the game’s construction tools… by which I mean someone BUILT A WORKING CALCULATOR USING THE GAME. I mean sure, it’s no …
I downloaded the WiiWare title Strong Bad: Homestar Ruiner on my (what else?) Wii a few weeks ago. I have a high regard for Telltale Games, and they seem to have made a go of this episodic content business (but where’s the next Bone, hmm?), so I was looking forward to this, ‘specially given it’s on the Wii, my current favorite platform du jour (how’s this for a run-on sentence?).

Tilted Mill – of Caesar IV and Children of the Nile fame – has just released Hinterland, an intriguing mashup of fantasy action roleplaying and city management. While in trying to manage both it ends up doing neither with much depth, at just $19.99 over Steam, Hinterland may well be worth a look.

A post on Videogaming247 includes translated snippets of a Finnish-language interview with Remedy Entertainment’s lead writer, Sami Järvi. Remedy has been toiling away on Alan Wake for about a bazillion years now, and looks to be needing a bazillion more. And that makes Steerpike a sad, sad panda.
CD Projekt made good on their promise to release an Enhanced Edition of their best selling game, The Witcher. The retail version became available for sale in the US on September 16. The gigantic download version was posted on September 19th. At first, CD Projekt’s designated server was overloaded but soon other servers picked it up and things have smoothed out. I’ve been playing the Enhanced Edition for a couple of weeks now and am …
With the recent concerns over DRM – particularly the obnoxious, intrusive copy protection found in Spore and the PC version of Mass Effect, it stands to reason that many top-shelf games are going to come loaded down with spyware in the form of piracy “protection” this holiday season. Not so, at least for one much-anticipated title.
Movie Review by Scout Bug Directed by William Friedkin From Lionsgate Films Released May 2007 Available on DVD Verdict: 4/5 Thumbs Up “…Ashley Judd frakking knocks it out of the park, turning in one of the best acting jobs in her career.
