Something about Midway (General news) -- by yPArAH

Midway lead designer was immensely kind to send us a batch of fresh art from this recently announced marine strategy. Veni, vidi, enjoyed. We expect an illustrating movie to be ready in two weeks time. OK, we'll wait.

P.S. I'm ba-a-a-ack! No more delayed news!

New screenshots (Site news) -- by yPArAH

Rumors about Black & White 2 in development are heard all around the world. It's time for some proof, pictures, I mean (take a peek here).
Next comes Imperium Galactica III. Looks like CDV solved it's developer problems and thus was able to send us journalists some fresh screens.
Want more? Look th the gallery of the Gladiators.
More? O-OK. Something from Strategy First, this time about O.R.B., here.
Happy now?

Delayed again (Paradise Cracked) -- by yPArAH

According to a BUKA press-release, Paradise Cracked released is once again postponed, this time till the middle of September. Quote: "...due to critical bugs found during the final test...". I just hope they will be able to deal with those... sudden mistakes. Meanwhile, a demo appeared on a press-only server of the company. It weights 183 Megs, making it a bit too much for yurg to download. Let's wait for the public mirror, shall we?
