Legends of Pegasus Developer Bankrupt

The Novacore Studios Website has news that the Legends of Pegasus developer has declared insolvency, and has ceased operations (thanks Slashman). The Kalypso Forums confirm this means this means an end to support for the recently released 4X strategy game, inspiring frustration in users hoping that some show-stopper bugs, some of whom are now inquiring about whether this should entitle them to refunds. Here's Kalypso's explanation of the situatuion:

Developer Novacore had to fine for bancruptcy this week. We assume there will be no further development of patches for Legends of Pegasus but cannot make any statements on the state of the bancruptcy.

It is also legally not possible for us to just hand out the source code of the game for further community development as the code also includes software that is not open source.

This situation is very unsatisfactory, for us but of course especially for you. But it is all we can say for now.

World of Warcraft Patch Plans and Hotfixes

The World of Warcraft Website announces a new version 5.1 patch for Mists of Pandaria will be added soon to the Public Test Realm for Blizzard's MMORPG. The accompanying notes outline plans for additional content, pet battle improvements, item upgrades, and more. On a related note, the list of Patch 5.0.5 Hotfixes is updated with a very lengthy list of new fixes implemented on the server side of the game.

More Project Eternity Stretch Goals

Obsidian Community Forum and the Project Eternity Kickstarter Page outline more stretch goals for this upcoming RPG. With the project at over 200% of its $1.1 million goal, they haul out the big guns to start attracting serious money, offering exclusive in-game pets for $50 backers, a hardcover book for $250 backers, and adding players names to the game for $500. They also announce more details on their mega-dungeon goals and offer expanded answers to questions from reddit about the game's combat system. Thanks nin.

Out of the Blue

The weatherman suggests this may be the last nice weekend of the year in these parts. I hope he's wrong, but I will try and appreciate how pleasant it is in case he's right.

Also, a forum user requests that other users here consider restricting their signatures to the actual signature, rather than also appending some form of signoff to the body of each post, as it promotes formatting problems in nested quotes. Seems like a worthwhile request, so I thought I'd pass that along for everyone's consideration.
