Valve Drop Hints About Episode Three

By John Walker on October 14th, 2008.

Come on, it would be awesome.

Valve never seem to take traditional routes for announcing new games.

EA Studio Showcase Audiostreams

By Jim Rossignol on April 25th, 2008.


VG247 has a bunch of audio recordings of the presentations from EA’s London studio showcase earlier today. The sound quality is a bit iffy, but the info is good. There’s also a bunch of new screens. Mm, rich, tasty info.

The lovely Ben Cousins on Battlefield Heroes. Both interview and presentation.

The alien sex-fancier Ray “Bioware” Muzyka on Mass Effect PC. Hot.

Talkomatic Paul Barnett on Warhammer Online.

Valve’s Mr Lombardi on Left4Dead. (Prefaced by plenty of presentation blather.)

Phew. Anyone for a beer?
