why don't they just blow the meteorites up with laser turrets? Or better yet, why don't they just let the atmosphere do its magic and disintegrate the aliens?

Perhaps the aliens had an "atmosphere compensator" and a, uh, "laser turret compensator". Works for Star Trek every time

This one has some baaad voice acting. I thought we had finally reached a point where this kind of thing isn't done by programmers and secretaries anymore.

Can't say anything about the game itself, though. When the first mission started my character just stood there, rotating endlessly and I couldn't get it to stop. Seems to be a little buggy...

bad things:the whole game feels like a console game

Uh, I happen to like console games. And I also liked Max Payne. You can reason against it as much as you like, but it kept me playing - level after level. And I thought it was really pretty interesting gameplay. There were so many little things, scripted events, easter eggs, story elements and even a couple of cool puzzles throughout the whole game that I didn't find it boring at all.

And after playing through it I felt like I do after watching a really good movie in the cinema. You know, you sit there, a little dizzie, and just think "whoah". There are not many games that made me feel like that.

Seems like IGN got some other things wrong as well. Note the link to "Black & White 2 for Win95" at the bottom of the news story http://pc.ign.com/news/37988.html

Not really surprising that it produces a 404 but you've got to give it to those IGN guys: they are really ahead of time. Maybe they have the review done already?

I'm surprised they didn't threaten to sue.

If they had you could have sued the company that painted those parking lot markings for "restricting your personal space and preventing you from freely unfolding your personality". You could then argue in your other trial that parking over these markings was a "cry for help against the numerous restrictions and the suppression of personal freedom in The Society".
Result: the charges against you are being dropped and you, in turn, get a few hundred million in compensation from those street-painters.

I'm not sure how they want to do this. Didn't they stress that the creatures in B&W are sexless? Seems a bit hard to let them have sex then.
The article seems to suggest that suddenly all creatures are male. Must be some kind of weird radiation on that island

Oh, and Blue: the article states that your creature will be the father (mother?) of a Tyke, not that it will be a Tyke itself.

On second thought, maybe developers of humorous adventures should always run their texts though babelfish a couple of times. It doesn't get more humorous than that

The demo is entirely in Spanish

What we need here is an advanced version of babelfish that regularly takes screenshots, does some text recognition and then automatically replaces the text or creates subtitles.

Now here's something for those Altavista guys to chew on

To those who saw it, were you impressed or just me?

No, I wasn't. However, I think due to the video quality many details (especially lighting effects) were lost in this short sequence. It really looks like it was designed to show off the realistic lighting model but most of the background and the creature is just too dim to see much of it.

Hmmm. I wonder how far along the project is? The fact that the domain was registered two years ago could mean that it has been in development for that same time frame already. And considering the average MMORPG development time we might just see it go live in another two years ;).

Provided that this "accidental" newsletter is not a joke, of course.

Another thing: anyone else noticed a tendency about themselves to write WorldCraft instead of World of Warcraft? Happens to me all the time... Maybe they'll have to change the name

As there still seems to be some confusion regarding the nature of domain names I'll try to clear this up a bit.

A domain name is simply a pointer to an IP address. Whenever the browser loads something the first thing he does is to resolve the domain name (i.e. obtain the associated IP address). He then opens a connection to the computer referenced by the IP and retrieves the data.

Multiple domain names can point to the same IP (i.e. to the same machine). This is the case with www.worldofwarcraft.com and www.blizzard.com. They both point to 209.67.136.168, which means that they are both names for the same machine.

So, as others have already pointed out, when you enter www.worldofwarcraft.com you will connect to the same server you'd connect to if you had entered www.blizzard.com. This means that everything you can access on www.blizzard.com (including the teaser) is also accessible via the machines other name, www.worldofwarcraft.com.

www.worldofwarcraft.com is just an alias to www.blizzard.com so there is really no reason to suspect a special connection between the teaser and the alternate name of the server.

my guess is it's either a new 3D space adventure game or an FPS set in the future.

Now THAT sounds interesting. Not the FPS (that'd seem like a cheap rip-off of C&C Renegade) but the space adventure game. I'd really like to play a new 4X game similar to Master of Orion. Just as long as they keep this real-time "I-click-you-before-you-click-me" stuff out. I'll take the turns, thank you

The 'problem' if you switch you double your chance of winning from 1 out of 3 to 2 out of three.

Yeah, pretty interesting thing. For those that crave for an explanation: your chances are better with the remaining door because

- when you first choose you have a 1/3 chance
- there is a 2/3 probability that the prize is behind one of the remaining doors
- the host never opens the door with the prize
- so the probability is 2/3 that the prize is behind one of the other two doors and you already know that the open one is a no-win
- so the remaining door has always a 2/3 chance

Where are all the black people?

Good question. Can't recall any, except that one guy from "The Triad".

But I doubt that the game was meant to be a realistic representation of NYC's ethnic makeup. And you could always argue that those mafiosi always keep to themselves (you know, all that brother/nephew/uncle stuff). There was also that other gang that was russian.

Well, they say that there are more valuable things than mere material riches.

Be prepared for Soldiers of Fortune - Love Edition and Soldiers of Fortune - Freedom Edition!

... hmmm. I wonder if they'll change the content a bit to reflect the name? If so, there are even more possibilities.

This christmas, only in selected stores: Soldiers of Fortune: Hot Date! The long awaited expansion pack to Soldiers of Fortune - Love Edition! Be prepared for even more shocking gameplay, now with pixel accurate hit detection for all extremeties!

... or something...
