About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

DreamCatcher Games today announced that it will launch Painkiller: Black Edition, a limited edition package for its best selling franchise Painkiller on DVD ROM. Available in March 2005, the special DVD set will include both the award winning original version and its expansion pack "Battle out of Hell" in a collector's box. This Special Edition will feature high quality packaging and each copy is uniquely numbered.

As a special bonus, the DVD will also contain a 'making of' video feature with developer interviews, the Painkiller title track music video by rock band Mech, the upcoming Painkiller Xbox® trailer, Mapping/Editing tools and documentation, as well as over a dozen Cyberathlete® Professional League (CPL) enhancements. All for a suggested retail price of £29.99.

"We are delighted to offer gamers the opportunity to enjoy everything from the original game, as well as all of the added features from the expansion."

Trapped in a dark and unwelcoming world awaiting purification for earthly sins, players must fight through an endless number of enemy warriors as they attempt to stop the imminent unholy war and overthrow Lucifer.
