My daily ramblings about the the daily zerg from zergwatch.com
Darkfall Online live date announced
It was announced on Friday that Darkfall, commonly referred to as Darkfail and categorized by the masses as vaporware is claiming a January 22 European launch. While no North American launch dates have been announced, they are invited to participate in the Euro launch. The two sentence press release sent the naysayers into fits of rage and it was like OJ was just acquitted for the believers. Most importantly, nothing beyond a press release has been provided by Adventurine, the developer of this team of 30 who began making the game many moons ago.
Hello Kitty Founders Preview
Last week, I got my Hello Kitty founders preview invite, did you? If not you're going to miss out on one Hello of a Christmas party from December 17th to December 22nd. There's going to be new Christmas maps too! If you already uninstalled the beta, don't fret, you can download it again prior to the event.
Holidays coming to an MMORPG near you
It's almost that time of the year where MMORPG's get into the holiday spirit. This week, Frostfell arrives in Norrath. The Feast of Winter Veil hits Azeroth. In Star Wars Galaxies, it's Wookie Life Day. It has become customary for any decent and self respecting game to have holiday events and the Christmas one is usually the most extravagant.
Netflix and Tivo
Two great services come together as Netflix announced that its service will be available on series 3 Tivo boxes. Netflix is already a great benefit to any XBox360 and by packaging it with Tivo, just makes the service even more worth having.
9 days until PS Home?
Rumors are circulating that Playstation Home will be out in time for the holidays. Sony is banking on the virtual world to help out sinking sales and to help the PS3 compete with the Xbox360 and Nintendo Wii. Right.
New ways to include video games into your violence
Two kids in Mesa, Arizona today hung a kitten by a game controller chord and stoned it to death, adding to the many creative ways video games are being brought into the world of violence and crime. Police claim the boys used the controller chord from the controller they used to play Grand Theft Auto IV, so it's safe to assume it was an Xbox360 controller because nobody plays PS3.
