Yitien: Review
R2Games' Yitien is a browser-based fighting game that is based on Chinese lore. We take a look at this easy-to-pick-up title and see how it fares.

If you have a few minutes to kill, there are only a few worse ways to kill them than by playing this game. Yitien is a browser-based fighting game based on a true story sort of Chinese setting, where your character is fated to be an epic hero and spends his or her time learning various skills and acquiring items and upgrades. It's a fairly generic storyline in that regard with a prettily-veneered game space. The game itself is free, but you'll quickly find that R2 Games is very much interested in your money and has placed much of the best content behind a paywall, including the top-level gear. While it may be possible to grind the virtual currency you'll need to buy that gear without spending real money, it will take enough time that World of Warcraft's vanilla version of the Winterspring Frostsaber grind looks like a summer afternoon in the park.

EVE: Valkyrie: Preview
EVE Online: Valkyrie is poised to set the gaming world on its ear with a unique gaming perspective. We recently had the opportunity to get a first hand on look at the game and have a terrific preview to share.

Later on, as E3 was coming to a close I approached CCP's Global CEO, Hilmar Veigar Pétursson during an event the company was throwing after hours. So, I may have had a few drinks in me as I rambled in his ear about how he was sitting on a goldmine with E:VR and had to make it a real game and not just an interesting tech demo that might be something later. So you can probably thank me for getting us here as it would seem Hilmar heeded my call and the world will soon know how awesome EVE: Valkyrie is for themselves.
