Premature Evaluation: Quarantine

Every week we send Brendan into the no-go zones of early access to take pus-filled samples of half-made games. This time, the infectious disease management of Quarantine [official site]. Beijing, Chengdu, and Dehli are all quarantined. Michael Clayborn, my crack medical operative who has served me faithfully, has died in the industrial Siberian wastes of Irkutsk. The entirety of South America has been sealed off…

Quarantine looks a lot like board game Pandemic

A cursory glance at the newly announced Quarantine [official site] could easily lead you to say something like “oh, it looks like Plague Inc but from the human's side”. But you are not thinking hard enough, cursory glancer. As board game aficionados will tell you, Quarantine looks a lot more like a single-player version of the much-loved Pandemic.

Pandemic Making Office Space (God, Sorry)

We've not mentioned the passing of Pandemic. The studio will breathe their last with The Saboteur, due to ship in a couple of weeks. They were bought by EA two years ago in a two-for-one offer with BioWare for a mere $860m. It's sad to see the creators of Full Spectrum Warrior, Battlefront, Mercenaries and Destroy All Humans closing their doors. Some of the company…

Listen Y’all Y’all This Is The Saboteur

I've just returned from a trip to see Pandemic's just-around-the-corner open world alterna-World War II game for another publication (I do so like to dance with the devil in the pale moonlighting), and was faintly surprised to realise whilst there that it was due on PC. This is because I never read any of John Walker's earlier posts about the game, due to a dark,…

Angry Driver: The Saboteur Dated, Detailed

We've not mentioned The Saboteur, the next game from Pandemic, so with today's announcement of a sale date of 4th December it seems about time. It's a game about the second Planet Earth War, during which you shoot a species known as "Nazis" in a country called "France". It sounds simply ludicrous to us. Oh, but tosh and fipsy to my dreadful British cynicism, it's…

Mercenaries 2 Gubbins

A week ago Jim asked us all if we were excited about Mercenaries 2. Well, think more with a new video and dev interview from Gametrailers below. Most interesting is the discussion of the new co-op mode, which is a splendid inclusion in a sandbox game. I remember meeting the team when they were making Mercenaries 1, delighted by their stated mantra: "Blow shit up."…

That’s A Lot For An Electric Tricycle…

But enough about really old Your Sinclair Gags which about four people in our readership will get. Electronic Arts has bought Bioware and Pandemic, in an exciting two-for-one offer. Let's quote the bit about the money, as money is all that matters in our world. EA will pay up to $620 million in cash to the stockholders of VG Holding Corp. and will issue up…
