RPS-ish At-ish E3: Day 2, Part 2 – Atari

By Mathew Kumar on July 16th, 2008.

Actually, this isn't Witcher Special Edition. Annoyingly, Atari hasn't got any assets for it on their site. Man! That Atari.

When I made my appointment to go and see Atari the only PC game they’d announced they were going to show was Deer Hunter Tournament. I thought I’d go along anyway as it might be kind of interesting – I’ve never played a Deer Hunter game, but I’ve heard they kind of have a naturiffic ambience, if you forget all that huntin’ and killin’ – but I didn’t actually end up looking at the title.

That’s because of Tomasz Gop. Tomasz works for CD Project Red and was Assistant Producer of The Witcher, and was on hand to show The Witcher: Enhanced Edition.

Neverending Nights: New NWN2 expansion

By Kieron Gillen on June 11th, 2008.

Over Zehir

There’s a new NWN2 expansion on the way, though you’d have to polish up your cross-language dictionary as well as your broadsword +4 against scarabs to be sure. NWN vault noticed that the splendid-named Spanish site Neverwinteros brings news of a new Expansion entitled “Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir”. The Vault actually translates the news, revealing that the game seems to be the Icewind Dale approach to the genre – in that it gives you the ability to design a whole party from scratch, then go forth and persecute kobolds for their gold. “Trading and economic manipulation” are promised, which sounds exciting, even through the translation. It also features a conflict with “the evil, shapeshifting, serpentine Yuan-Ti”, which we welcome, as we are completely racist about the bloody Yuan-Ti. They’re complete shits.
