Good News and Bad News!
Posted by deckard47 on December 1, 2008
So, in a return to blogging (which was cut short by lots of things), I find several terribly exciting bits of news to throw at you.
First (and try not to cry for this one). EA is giving what is essentially the entire Dungeon Keeper world to another company to make a China-only MMOG. Wtf right? Here’s all of the official blather, but I guess we’ll have to hope that somebody decides to port it over here. Because this might be good, it might be amazing.
The second, amazing thing is this: they may be making a console version of The Witcher, which will feature
extensive use of motion-capture for the character animations, have better lighting and environmental effects, improved enemy AI and full achievement and trophy support
I could care less about the trophies, but the rest sounds sweet. I don’t think they realize this over at CD Projekt, but I will buy every version of this game that they produce, except the kart racing strategy version. Exciting!
Finally, a fancy-schmancy video for Black Mesa, the Source engine total conversion/recreation of HL1. Very cool.
In actual gaming that I’m doing news, Sacred 2 is kind of sweet. It’s like Titan Quest but less flabby, it knows what you want and delivers. And by that I mean it delivers a talking deadly robot dog avatar. Sweet.
