Holy shit…Darren is posting something on his gaming blog. Everyone check if the moon has turned to blood (…see what I did there. I have a religious blog and I referenced an apocalyptic saying..and…I….ahem….).
Couple things to note I guess. First, SUWT 74 is up over at VirginWorlds right now, so if you haven’t listened to it, go do so. The lights may be dimmed a bit over here, but the show is still going.
Now…Rift. I have to admit that I was not paying attention to this game at all. However, I’ve been told by some birdies that it is…to quote…”the shit”, and (…/looks at notes…), “will really surprise players”. Interesting. So…I’ve somehow gotten a VIP beta during a giveaway at Massively (…thanks guys…) and I will be taking a look as soon as I can. As of now, I’m not caught up on all the information regarding Rift…so I’m not fully ready to comment on what I read yet. I’m very curious to see what they’ve got up their sleeves in terms of what differentiates them from the other players. I’ll say this right now, given what I have read: Scott Hartsman and the gang over at Trion…thank goodness that they are sticking to their guns and not falling for the “social gaming” trend. We shall see who is left standing when that little train goes to shit.
Lastly. As you all know, I play quite a bit of strategy games. One of my favorite companies out there right now is AGEOD. They are releasing a new strategy game tomorrow which is based on the Russian Revolution (1917-1923). It’s a very interesting time in Russia’s history. There is a demo, you can find it here as I plan to try it out tonight if I can.
That’s it for now.
