Some colour and varied environments do absolutely not hurt the gaming climate these days :)

Hope it will be a good game inside the attractive shell tho =)

Overlord was great. Hope they work on a sequel to AoW or something new as well.

Too bad that this country is run by left wing religious fruitcakes that see games as something morally deprived though. Some proper funding like the Canadians should deliver some great innovating new teams. :/

The first overlord missed its goal completely. The first level was quite fun, but later the lack of controls over your minions became frustrating. Also, the later levels were simply not fun. It was great to run around and terrorise the villagers in the first level, but after that you just ran around helping elves, killing zombies and doing ridiculous puzzles.

I will not hold my breath for this one. However, I like the overall concept of the game, so if were lucky they may get their things together and actually make the game good this time.

Anyone else finding the whole concept "uncool"?

My biggest complaint about the first game was a lack of a map. When you got to the later levels of the game, some of them were somewhat confusing to navigate, and without a map you'd spend hours wandering around trying to find the spot you're supposed to go to.

About the game

    Sdarts Blizzard giving the original StarCraft for free is very generous of them. Weird to think Activision owns it, even though Blizzard has free reign. One of the best onwed by one of the worst. (25 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts StarCraft Remastered's additions - more in the article - and the fact that Blizzard will make the original StarCraft free, and let players of the original play with those of the remastered is great. (27 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts StarCraft Remastered out this summer: [url] 4K visuals, modern online play, LAN support with Blizzard Friends & Matchmaking. (31 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Those are mods and they will be available if/once the PC version comes out. (31 minutes ago)

    Sdarts @KORNdog: That's true. But I'm sure it will still sell a gazillion of copies. Specially if it ends up being as great as the first one. Also, very few Westerns, so people will love the "novelty". (32 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog although rocket powered horse racing with loop the loops, 1000ft jumps and corkscrews would be pretty entertaining. (33 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog the MP mode has tron cycles and trackmania style racing. i just can't see RDR having that sort of mass appeal unless they go ball to the wall crazy with the way they do things. (35 minutes ago)
