Activision Announces X-Men: Legends

Voodoo Extreme was kind enough to point me to this press release by Activision announcing X-Men: Legends. The press release, as most press releases are, is a little light on the details. However, it does come with an excellent pedigree, having been developed by Raven Software. It's coming 2004 for Xbox, PS2, and GameCube.
Says Florida attorney Jack Thompson in this CNN/Money article of the Washington State Senate 47 to 7 decision to support a bill that bans the sale of violent video games to minors, "Today the good guys won one."  Putting video games up yet again as a defacto cause of violence in society, the State of Washington is expected to institute a $500 fine per offence for the sale to minors of vi
It's hard to believe we've been at this for three months now!  This month's state of the site update brings the same general good news we've packed previous ones with, namely that we're still here, we're still having a good time, and there's a good chance that more of you are reading this than did before.  On the downside, I'm still not famous.  That's

Regime Change at PlanetGameCube

Springtime, already known for stirring up certain instinctual emotions, apparently also causes acute itchiness to move on. Yesterday we heard about Feargus Urquhart stepping down from Black Isle Studios and Interplay. Today I read that Billy Berghammer will be leaving Planet Gamecube.

Fjords of EverQuest

Perhaps there were meetings upon meetings with full committee and an assortment of bagels, danishes, and juices. However, when I waited anxiously as those last few seconds ticked off on the teaser page, and then, five minutes later when they actually put up the site, I was sort of underwhelmed.
In a continuing effort to find a variety of things to prattle on about, I thought it might be fun (for me) to discuss some of the fine films, specials, documentaries, and assorted nonsense that have recently been projected from my DVD player onto the back of my retinas.  This is not a DVD review exactly, because that would be boring for you to read, and more importantly boring for me to write.  I&
You may have seen the rumors followed by official reports that Feargus Urquhart is leaving Interplay. He directed the Black Isle Studios division which has developed some of the epic games that still remain nearest and dearest to gamers' hearts.

Asheron Places Toll Free Call

GameSpyDaily was kind enough to mention that you can download a free trial client of the Microsoft/Turbine MMORPG Asheron's Call 2 from FilePlanet. I remember seeing a similar offer in the past for Anarchy Online. However, this differs in that you don't even need to input any credit card information to give AC2 a try.

Lords of Everquest

Well at least they didn't call it "Lords of the Everquest" although it was a near thing. The Everquest RTS site has been launched and judging by the 20+ screenshots, the descriptions of the units and features I'd say we're right on track for more of the same. Three playable factions? Check. Hero units? Check. A claim of 75 hours of single player gameplay?

Sony Clicks "Undo" On Shock and Awe

The mob has spoken! By "mob", of course, I mean Elysium! According to a Reuters article, Sony is responding by public outcry by withdrawing their application for a trademark on "Shock and Awe". I suppose the question is now who will pick it up?
