Tiling Away The Hours: Carcassonne On PC

By Adam Smith on October 20th, 2011.

Is there a knight on the tiles?

Either this was unheralded or I’ve been listening to the wrong heralds, but Carcassonne is now available from Gamersgate in a rather spiffy looking PC conversion. There has already been a version for your personal computing device, but it was only distributed in Germany and has since been discontinued so it can carry a relatively hefty price tag. This downloadable version is £7.95, or £23.97 for a four-pack. It certainly looks the part and several expansions are included: rivers, inns and cathedrals, dealers and builders, and king and scout. Multiplayer works over internet and networks, as well as in hotseat mode, which is proper and good.

Pripyat Precipitates Feb 5th

By Jim Rossignol on January 5th, 2010.


Koch Media have confirmed February 5 as the release date for S.T.A.L.K.E.R : Call of Pripyat in the UK, Italy, and “Nordic”, although which countries that stands for isn’t quite clear. Russia, Germany and the rest of Europe have had their versions of the game for a while now, and all feedback points to good. I’ve spent quite a lot of time with the early English-language version myself, and wrote up impressions here. In short: strong stuff, especially in the direction of open-endedness, but I have a few reservations. I’ll be playing the hell out of it when the full version arrives too, obviously. There’s no news about what’s happening with a US version, but presumably it’ll find its way to digital download before long.
