LOK game news and other stuff

Despite the turmoil caused by Viperic, it turned out that Victoria and Aaron are only writing the script for the new game and want to show it to Crystal. They are not making the game themselves. I wonder how it will turn out...

As for the update on Prodigal Sons, Jake is still working on it and Fall of Nosgoth by Ascare is still in progress as well.

Eidos announced that CD will work on a new AAA title...what it might be? Another TR? Some are suggesting Gex or Legacy of Kain. We may only wait to see what they have prepared for us.

I finally have some free time, so I intend to make new vids for my youtube account.

The good news is that I´ve finished recording the Soul Reaver OST and I will upload it later.

E3 - EA Press Conference

Although I missed the MS conference, I decided to watch EA one at least. Whoever awaited some epic announcements or any videos from Crysis 2 was severely disappointed. The whole thing started with Petz, yeah, I am serious, I was not the only one who thought it was a joke. The list of presented titles only got worse - they showed games for girls and ultimately an excercise game for Wii. Exciting? Right... Followed by NFS Shift, which was nothing spectacular, a bunch of common sports games were announced along with some others equally interesting ones. The only thing that saved the presentation was Brutal Legend footage which uncovered more of the characters appearing in the game (Ozzy is cool:D ) and a few screens from Crysis 2 - no footage?! Other than that? Nothing to get excited about. Let´s see what Ubisoft has to offer...

New "official" fangame rumour

I got a message from a girl named Victoria who created a LOK group on Facebook, claiming she got the support of Aaron Hausmann, one of the artists who worked on Dark Prophecy. This rumour spread quickly but there is neither the official announcement from Eidos, nor any word from Aaron whether this is true. I am sceptical about this, since the petition included on the site´s group expired in 2008... Some fans do believe this though, although I think that to give an official continuation of the game to the fans will be a very bad move. Let them create fan games but not official ones. The fans simply do not possess such knowledge about the story, game mechanics, etc. as those who worked on them. Check this link for more details.
