SYNDICATE returns ?

Another one of the 90's classics, SYNDICATE, seems to be subject of rumours since quite some time.
Gamasutra has the latest on it, stating that Starbreeze (of "Chronicles of Riddick" fame) might be doing a new game with the IP....
I wonder if someone has some statistics of "old IPs ressurected vs new IP created", as this might prove interesting.
Does the industry now rely on "zombies" instead of "newborns" ?

Gears of War 3 teaser OFFICIAL

Longer campaigns for single player ? Nah !

Kokugamer wants longer single player games.
Well, having finished "Darksiders" just recently, which I mastered in about 30 hours, and felt had some lengthty parts, I would tend to disagree.I would even dare say that I prefer shorter games, but it depends on the genre.
A game like Mass Effect, Fallout etc, RPG, RTSs, they can be longer, as there is a huge story arc and quite some levelling.
But a game like "Darksiders" could have been like 20 hours max for me, as I feel the whole story doesnt offer that much to justify 30 hours.
Lets face it, rarely a game offers such a dense and interesting story that You would want it to be stretched.
So I vote: no more than 20 hours max, or I get bored !
