Interview with Demigod Developers

Chris Taylor, Gas Powered Games founder and architect of Total Annihilation and Supreme Commander, along with Brad Wardell, CEO of up-and-coming publisher Stardock of Sins of a Solar Empire fame, recently gave an interview with Gamespot regarding the pending RTS title Demigod. A more-personal RTS, Demigod promises to breathe life into a tried and true formula, as I've mentioned before.

Reading more about Demigod, it really seems like an action-adventure meets RTS, or, more specifically, Supreme Commander meets Dungeon Siege, two Gas Powered alumni. The arena-style battles, with capturable power-ups and customizable legions, seems like an exciting take on Defense of the Ancients-style play.

A release date for Demigod is now available; it will release in February, 2009.

World in Conflict Campaign Completed

Neat, I've had time to play video games again!

Finished the World in Conflict campaign last night, it was a great ending to strangely compelling alternate-history story of war in the continental United States. The game itself is fantastic as well, and particularly strong is the online multiplayer component. With the campaign finished, I'll have to turn back to the online play, I had fun with it in the past, I wonder if there are still enough people to play with, or if they've all gone back to grinding in WoW...
