You wanted it, you got it. For his big comeback to reviewing stuff in his own special way, Silver Sorrow takes a shot (more than one in fact... a lot... and then some more) at Mirror's Edge, the frantic game from DICE and Electronic Arts that has your character jumping around on buildings in a monkey-like fashion that... Well, I'll let you read the review itself as there's no way I could sum up that in one sentence. I gathered that it was an painful enough experience though. Usually Silver hate monkeys (some traumatic experience he had with some monkeys in a nearly abandoned ship governed by a lady named Shodan...) but I guess he doesn't like behaving like one either. Well, that's a thing I can understand, I would hate that too... but I love monkeys... hell, I'm one of them after all.

Er... Yeah so back to the topic. Go read the Mirror's Edge review and let me alone with my monkey fetish.

The Dark Mod 1.0 Released PDF Print E-mail

That's right. After 5 years of development, Broken Glass Studio and The Dark Mod team have released the public beta of their total conversion of the Doom 3 engine to adapt it to the tough requirements of a stealthy gameplay based on the steampunk universe of Thief. Until now the public had to play alpha versions of The Dark Mod. The latest demo release a year ago was already of beta quality in my opinion so I expect The Dark Mod 1.0 release to be pretty close to the final version although it's still considered as beta by the developing team.

Yup.

Read the press release here.

I have no idea what the acquisition of id by Bethesda Softworks' parent company will mean to humanity as a whole, but I find the following quote somewhat reassuring...which is why they say it.

id Software will continue to operate as a studio under the direction of its founder, John Carmack. No changes will be made in the operations of id Software in the development of its games. All the principals at id Software have signed long-term employment contracts, assuring they will continue in their roles developing games at the studio.

Viva New Vegas! ...Not To Mention A Release Date For Broken Steel PDF Print E-mail

Even though the news is a couple of days old, you haven't heard/read it yet unless you hear/read it from me. Just accept it.

Anyway, as posted on the Bethesda Blog (yes, I know: I post second- and third-hand information as "news." Bite me.), Fallout: New Vegas has been announced. Instead of Bethesda being the hamsters in the wheel this time around, this one's being developed by Obsidian Entertainment...which has a few people from Black Isle, which in turn created the original Fallout...

...of course, this apparently gives license to certain people to call this a "true" sequel to Fallout 2. Please be aware that if you're doing that, you're a complete waste of skin.
