Gold - Hammer & Sickle

CDV announces that Hammer & Sickle is gold, and that the Cold War RPG should infiltrate North American stores on December 5:
November 2, 2005 – CDV’s highly anticipated tactical RPG, Hammer and Sickle, has gone gold for PC today. The game, which is set to ship in North America on December 5, places gamers in the role of a Soviet spy working to prevent a nuclear showdown between the world’s superpowers. More info about the game is available at http://www.hammer-sickle.com.

Hammer & Sickle is a tactical RPG set in the spring of 1949. In the game, the player will assume the role of a top Soviet spy on clandestine duty in the British-American controlled sector of Germany during the early years of the budding Cold War. In a world where no one is quite who they appear to be, the player is trapped in a hellish plot that could trigger a third world war, this time between the United States and Soviet Union and their respective nuclear arsenals. Gamers will have to navigate a web of intrigue and make decisions that could determine the fate of the world.

Yo Slaughter,
Even without the movie to blaze the trail here (in North America). I would think with Nival's reputation for great turn-based gameplay it should still sell quite well. I would buy it even if a few reviewers give it low marks.

The S2 engine in a fantasy setting with magic and supernatural beings just sounds like a winner. Even if I don't know much about the movie or books.

Hope you are enjoying Aftershock as much as I am. I am so hooked. It is one of the best games I have played this year... if not the best. But damned if I didn't just get invited to join the Dungeons & Dragons Online Beta.

I was hooked by the WoW beta and played it for about ten months. Now I have to decide to either continue with my Aftershock obsession or take time away from it and try out D&D Online. Not to mention my copy of Call Of Duty 2 that is collecting dust while sealed in shrink-wrap.

I think I have played roughly fifty missions in Aftershock (since restarting the game for the third time) and I am finally getting a familiar vibe from a few maps. Altar really did a great job with the randomness in the game. Can't say enough about that.

My quest for world domination... I mean the cleansing of Earth & taking it back from these filthy mutants and thier alien fathers will never let me rest.
