Previews

  • Here's a developer journal on the Scout Feat Tree for the upcoming Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising MMO.  Romans?  Gods?  I will never ... ever ... log out.
  • Dungeon Siege II: Broken World has a video hack-n-slashing through its "Morden Camp" location.
  • If operating in South America as a DEA with a chip on his shoulder sounds fun, then check out this trailer for El Matador.  But for a stylistically silly story about a washed up hitman, watch Pierce Brosnan's The Matador.
  • New shots up for Test Drive Unlimited.  These showcase the Dodge Viper whipping around the 1,000 miles of Oahu track available in this upcoming online racer.

Demos & Patches

  • In the battlefields of Africa, it takes more than just 30 tons of armor plating to win a war -- but it's not a bad start.  Here's a demo of Panzer Elite Action: Dunes of War.
  • If the Revolutionary War isn't under-represented enough in strategy gaming, how's about the Hungarian Wars of Independence?   A new demo of For Liberty! gives you both.
  • Here's the v2.51 patch for the Civil War strategy title Take Command: 2nd Manassas, in English and German  flavors.
