Hey, Path Of Exile Is Kind of Popular

I think that's an accurate assessment of the situation. Since going live earlier this year, the free-to-play indie action RPG has gobbled up roughly 4 million registered users. And while accounts don't translate directly to people clicking on things, Grinding Gear Games say that amounts to just over 250,000 daily users. Blimey! I thought it would do well, but that's an incredibly healthy number for…

Path of Exile Adds New Content, Expansion Coming In March

Path of Exile, aside from being the name of my freelance career thus far, is a free-to-play action-RPG which Adam liked a lot even in its early beta stages. It came out of beta just a few weeks ago, but its developers are already outlining the next four months of post-release patches leading up to the first expansion in March. A video explaining the additions…

Hooray! – System Shock 2, Thief 2 Get Usability Patches

It's only confirmed for the 360 and…

Patches: Too much? Too little?

Two stories caught my eye. Firstly, Cryptic Comet – as well as revealing Solium Infernum – announced their next free content patch for Armageddon Empires. The innuendo-provoking Tip Of The Spear is primarily about increasing the utility of infantry troops through new advanced training cards. It's due on the 17th of July, the anniversary of the game's release. Which is nice. Secondly, Crytek announcing that…

Officially Unofficial Patch

While Meer's been battering his way through it, I haven't had a chance to actually play the new Beyond the Sword pack yet (Though the hype around it has caused me to have a vanilla-Civ4 relapse). However, it looks like I'm never actually going to get a chance to play it as the developers intended, as - by all accounts - I should immediately patch…
