When I saw Gamespot had screens of a new game called Myth War, I got my hopes up that it would be a revival or spin-off of the great Bungie fantasy wargame. Sadly, no. It’s just another fantasy MMO. Wake me when they set an MMO in Moghul India.

This VGResource editorial on how many gamers only use reviews as hooks to validate their own opinions, preconceptions or wishes has only one real surprise. Apparently there is a Wikipedia entry on Gamespot’s Jeff Gerstmann. And people care enough to vandalize it.

If you missed City Life the first time around, there is a new “World” edition coming out in a couple of months.

Nine days till Rise of the Witch King.

Check out the latest Gaming Round Table, on the subject of “grammar” in games. I’ll have more to say about this once a certain review of mine is posted, since it will make more sense with some context.

Still looking for a guest blogger for November. Any volunteers would be appreciated.

    I think I volunteered at some point before. I’ll try to think of something to write about – I had some things in mind.

    Seems like November is almost over, but it sounds like a fun assignment to take on. :)

    Tom’s got November covered, Krupo, but feel free to contribute for December!

    There’s still a dearth of Sid Meier’s Railroads game-play guide/commentaries. ;)

    The brainstorming continues…
