Byebye, Bioware

10/12/07 | by Adam | Categories: Games
The behemoth that is EA has swallowed another fine developer. Expect "Baldurs' Gate III" to come with cool graphics and an utterly unusable interface. And it'll be as buggy as hell. Assuming there is one. We'll probably get more sports and racing… more »

The trouble with Warcraft

10/03/07 | by Adam | Categories: Games
I took the summer off from playing Warcraft; in theory I intended to do things like work the garden, be social, hike and kayak. Well, I managed some of that -- still need to be social -- but y'know, winter's coming and I need an indoors hobby again. more »

Warcraft? The Australians are worried about "World of Warcraft" as a terrorist training program? You could try to sell me on "Counterstrike" or "Battlefield 2" where you can at least create virtual environments to practice in. Quoting an online game… more »
