Wing Commander 4 (with DVD-quality cutscenes) is now on GOG: http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/wing_...ice_of_freedom

Also: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20...om-on-thursday

CD Projekt Red will give away a "legendary" PC RPG for free on GOG.com this Thursday, 5th April, Eurogamer can reveal.

The giveaway coincides with CD Projekt's Spring Conference, which is being streamed live at 5pm GMT (presumably 6pm BST).

Note that giveaway has nothing to do with the "extraordinary" conference announcement CD Projekt has been teasing.

CD Projekt Red head of marketing Michal Platkow-Gilewski explained to Eurogamer: "No, there will be no announcement of a new game.

"But to give you some hints and not to spoil the surprise, CD Projekt RED and GOG.com have prepared something very special for all the PC fans of The Witcher 2 Assassins of Kings, who already have the game, as well as for all those who will buy one any time in the future.

"It is something really unique," he added.

"More to come on the conference."

A free copy of The Witcher 1? What has CD Projekt got up its deer-hide sleeve?

About 2 months ago there was a posting of a job listing for Spark Unlimited that sounded a lot like Star Wars Battlefront 3.
http://playstationlifestyle.net/2012...ing-this-year/

Fast Forward to 2 days ago, screenshots of the game find their way onto the Resident Evil disk:
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20...coon-city-disc
and
http://www.battlefront3.net/2012/04/...e-real-or-not/


Yesterday, Leaked Pre-Alpha footage:


and a bunch of Pre-Alpha screenshots:
http://www.battlefront3.net/2012/04/...battlefront-3/


EDIT: This leaked footage and screenshots are from the Free Radical build of the game which was scrapped many years ago. The first three links are new sources of hope for the game.

So for about ten years, I've been looking for a graphics patch for Pharaoh, one of the best of Impressions' city building games.

Basically, you can set the graphics to 640x480, 800x600 or 1024x768. No widescreen, no allowances for modern resolutions. It's not stored in *.cfg or *.ini files either, but instead in the *.exe launcher file. So it required someone adept with hex editors.

This guy is the man. http://widescreengamingforum.com/for...son-widescreen

He added 1280x960, 1600x1200, 1920x1440, 2048x1536, 1280x1024, 1280x720, 1360x768, 1600x900, 1920x1080, 2560x1440, 1280x800, 1440x900, 1680x1050, 1920x1200, 2560x1600 resolutions for both Pharaoh and its expansion, Cleopatra.

Apparently working on new *.exe files for Zeus and Emperor, too. Love it when gaming communities step up.

EDIT: I stand corrected. Zeus and Poseidon files are done too!

Anyone got a quick synopsis of what to expect, both gameplay/feel-wise and quality-wise?
In short, it's a modern-day MMORPG, with a government conspiracy / Templar / Illuminati theme. Maybe a little like a Hellgaet London, except not sucky.

This video is 36 minutes, but it answers your questions nicely: http://asia.gamespot.com/the-secret-...n-gdc-6366329/

T-minus 1 month until Diablo III.

That means 30 days to get all my **** in order, before my life slowly unravels before me.

I know there are a number of Total War fans here. Here's a thought-provoking article on quick loading and expectations of victory in RTS/TBS and grognard gaming.

Articles at GameSpy have seemed to pick up since Dan Stapleton took over.

Good read.

I am pretty forgetful so when I get into a game I generally only remember about saving/loading after things have already gotten past the point of no return. I do agree that certain games tend to have overly severe consequences if you lose, which forces players into more of a save/load mindset.

I think the MMO playstyle might be one of the influences at work here. You can do whatever idiotic thing you wish and generally your character is fine again after the respawn timer runs down. I think people are looking for a similar situation in other types of games now too. I can remember the days of the original C&C and Civ titles and hardly saving at all. Then your NOD base gets hit with Orcas and you forgot to build missile silos and you start the whole thing over again.

I feel like I'm in the dark here. For the last 6 or 7 months I've been all about Arkham City, Uncharted 3 and NHL 12.....

Nice. I downloaded the client the other day. Should be ready to go. Just like I am suddenly ready to go... home from work. Maybe another hour.

Ghost Recon Future Soldier beta... wow, it is really good. Im seriously considering getting the game.

If Skyrim has a fault, it's that its just too damn short. Great gaming experience, otherwise.

Got a used copy of ME3 for $15. Thats up next for me.
