Welcome, iPad

So the cat is out the bag: Apple's new baby is called the iPad, it features a 1 GHZ Apple custom CPU called A4, a fantastic 9.7" IPS-display at 1024x768.Those a great specs for the purpose, albeit the CPU could be faster (although You never know with Apple hardware, it could be absolutely adequate in use).
Good thing, it seems, now I wonder what Amazon has to say about it...

Chris Noth is Sam the Eagle !?

Sure, he needs a little make up, but isnt it obvious ? Chris Noth and "Sam the Eagle" from The Muppet Show are one and the same !

"Stonekeep" (Interplay) a Wii game !

Interplay announced, that their old RPG "Stonekeep" gets a rebirth on where is Bard's Tale and Fallout :D

Prince of Persia returns to its roots

After the change of graphics style to more something like Borderlands in the last PoP part, "The Forgotten Sands" looks like a true next gen PoP.
IGN has the latest screenshots, and I can't wait for this game...

My biggest game complaint of 2009... the fact that the excellent "The Witcher" never came to consoles.I would have preordered it in an instant.Shame :(
Whats YOUR biggest game complaint for 2009 ?


Gamasutra has a nice news article:
Epic joins Khronos, which is pretty good news, as it will help promote OpenGL.
Maybe this has something to do with the Unreal Engine 3 running on the iPhone ?
Exciting times :D

Classic Reading: Masters of Doom

The defintive history of one of the most sucessful game series, and of one of the most innovative and groundbreaking development studios, iD.
Hilarious, inspiring, motivating.Each "character" in this book is unique, and how they play together is funny.
Its a dive into the past, and it brings back the days of BBS, shareware and how word of mouth can make a game into a legend.Learn how Carmack met Romero, how the graphics were developed, how Doom advanced to Quake, and why Nintendo didnt want Mario on PC.Get it.

Classic reading: The Ultimate Book of Ultima

This is an excellent book about the legendary ULTIMA saga, created by Richard "Lord British" Garriot.
It tells it all, the times of "Akabaleth", the starting of ULTIMA, the constant rewriting of engines for every new ULTIMA, the obstacles, the successes, and the philosophical background surrounding each part of the classic RPG series.
Its inspiring and amusing and insightful.Awesome.Must have for every serious game designer.
