A retro gamers wet dream comes true !

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I thought it would have been awesome if LucasArts had made the original StarWars trilogy in a series of adventures à la Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis.Well.They never did.
Now, a fangame does what LA should have done, and it looks great, too !

GamesCom in Cologne, afterthoughts

Last week we were at the new GamesCom in Cologne.
We had great exspectations, but it was rather disappointing.The variety was great, but unfortunately, the ueberlong chains waiting to be let in to watch Diablo, Dead Space Extraction or Dante's Inferno were just unbearable :(
So, instead of waiting 3 hours to see Diablo 3, we just checked all the non-adult stuff, and skipped ALL THE COOL GAMES.
Either they change that next year, or it was our last trip to that fair.

LEGION, the sequel to the holy bible ?

"Believe it nor not..."
I'd rather not, unfortunately, the Internet Movie Database rarely lies.So they are making a movie that sounds like a mix between God's Army and The Seventh Sign, along with a bit of The Astronaut's Wife and, oh, Rosemarie's Baby.Did I forget something ? Let me know here in the comments ! Looks like the "big return of disaster movies" for this year and the next.

The Knowing microreview

Ok, watched "Knowing" with Nic Cage, and I guess he is just so lost because he didn't get Tom Hanks role in those Dan Brown book movies.
"Bangkog Dangerous" was lousy, "Knowing" is just even more stupid than "Signs".Although the special FX are cool.Three thumps down, Nic.Better check those screenplays BEFORE signing up.
This movie is not only ABOUT disasters.It IS a crash.
Oh, and Moe, this movie really suxx big time.Thanks for the tip !NOT !

Concept Art update

Here's some minor concept sketches for a game I work on.I still dunno how to call those beasts, so if anybody has suggestions, please let me know here in the comments. I might be tempted to give away a free copy or two of the game, if the ideas are good :) So be creative and name your worst nightmare...

Gears of War 1 and Gears of War 2

So I paused JADE EMPIRE and UNCHARTED and played with my buddy Matze through GoW1 and with my girl through GoW 2.
They are EPIC, no pun intended.The texture work and sheer amount of content in both are breathtaking.The action is intense albeit a bit repetitive, but playing coop and using tactics like crossfire and flanking is VERY satisfying.My gamertag is emme1973, so if anybody wants to cut with me through waves of Low-Cost (hehe), just drop me a message.
