    [ADM feel free to kill this if you think this it's a bad idea. ]

    I thought it might be quite good to have a 'post thread' of sorts for just discussing random games/industry news and headlines that perhaps alone didn't warrant a new thread. Maybe it's covered in the "what did you play most recently?" thread, but I don't think so.

    So to kick things off...

    Monkey Island 2: Special Edition announced!

    http://www.lucasarts.com/games/monkeyisland2/#/news

    Looks great, although sadly Guybrush doesn't look like the guy from the Lone Gunmen anymore (in the X-files). But that's moot --Monkey Island 2 is one of my all time favourite games, and it's looking pretty damn awesome.

            Speaking of Deus Ex, I finally found out what Warren Spector is up to these days.

              Don't play that! It's filled with Right Winged propaganda!

              Just kidding. I have been following that game for a while but Mickey Mouse is like a bit oldie for me

                Frankly, I think most games need the word EPIC in them.

                i.e.
                EPIC Mario
                EPIC Fantasy
                EPIC Wake
                Lara Croft, EPIC Raider
                Super Street Fighter II EPIC edition
                Gears of EPIC
                Deus EPIC



                etc....

                Oh, that reminds me of something I read the other day:

                Someone has finally taken Scott Miller's advice and dropped the 'tomb raider' tag in favour of the stronger 'Lara Croft' name:

                  also they dropped the TPS gameplay and turn it into something like Diablo 2.

                    Are there any screenshots or videos yet? What happened to that open-world survival one set on an island? Was that idea scraped?

                        Re: Gaming news

                        Ah, hmm... this looks more like a spin off game, than a true sequel.

                          It looks like a copy of Trine in isometric.

                          In other news... MW2 devs getting screwed out of their royalties as well (not just Vince and Jason), so they have to sit at their desks and wait to get their royalties (hence that they didn't all just leave after V+J got fired)...

                          Activision suck balls. Never buying a game from them, ever. I hope IW reforms under a new publisher/self-publisher arrangement.

                          None it sounds legal to me. In Australia you get royalties (if royalties are in your contract, which they are for all IW employees) for your work even if you quit the day you complete some work. They just pay you at the next quarter even though you've moved onto another job or whatever.
                          Sarah Breaker > Barry Wheeler. Yep, I went there!

                            ^There's another thread for that story.

                            Meanwhile... Nintendo announce the 3DS (working title) -- a portable games system to succeed the DS, which claims to display true 3d images without the need for special glasses. Hopefully it doesn't require you to cross your eyes either.

                              3DS huh? sounds crazy, I can't wait for E3

                              F3AR has been revealed ... yes it is F.E.A.R 3 but called F3AR

                              http://kotaku.com/5500488/f3ar-theyr...alling-it-that

                              After finishing the second game I can't imagine what the hell is going to be F3AR about. FEAR 2 sucks BTW
