A Rant

God, where to begin.....

The announcement at PAX East that Penny Arcade Adventures Episodes 3 and 4 have been canceled is sad and rage inducing. It would have been nice to say this about 6 months ago, or when Khoo said there would be news at PAX and made it sound like a positive development. Hothead abandoned the game probably because EA threw bags of money at them and sacrificed PAA for Deathspank. That last part is my opinion, but the link makes it sound that way.

Kasumi gets delayed to late in the day on PC because MS can't get their act together on Live. My thoughts can be be summed up in my post in the PA ME2 thread - "So remember kids, not only is GFWL not very good for PC gaming, Live as a whole now prevents you from getting content on time regardless of platform." We all know that if there was a problem with pushing some content out on the PC, no one would hold up the release for the console version if it was fine.

On the Ubisoft front, our Aussie friends have been having trouble playing their legitimately bought copies of Settlers 7. Big surprise there. Oh, also someone perfected the AC2 crack into an emulated server solution.

I guess that's it for now.....

I finally finished this game last night. I'd had a save file sitting at the moment before the final fight for a few days now and hadn't actually beaten the game. My overall impression of Jade Empire is that it's the best game I've played so far in 2005, and it's the best RPG I've ever played.

I picked this up last night and started playing after Erin went to bed. I was immediately impressed with the graphics and my enjoyment of the game only continued from there.

This is all well and good, but why has no media asked
the question: "What about the fans that diligently
went out and bought each X-game when they were
released?" I am one of them, as why shouldn't I ...

Updated the original post with that video. I dunno, I
think it was in poor taste personally. But if you
don't have any money for advertise I guess you do what
you need to do.

Guess it's just a publicity stunt after-all. Pretty
lame though.

I'd be surprised to see it get a client, unless that
client is optional. One of the selling points of GOG
that they kept going on about was that you didn't need
a client. I'd be even more surprise...
