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.


'Gears of War' (X360) Blows a German Gasket

Gears of War blends the best of tactical action games with the best of survival horror titles, thrusting gamers into the harrowing story of humankind's battle for survival against the Locust Horde.
Gears of War will not be released in Germany, due to the ratings board refusing to assign a rating to the game. Microsoft considered developing a version that could obtain a rating and therefore be eligible for store placement and advertisement; however, this would have been incompatible with other versions when playing on Xbox Live, so the idea was scrapped altogether. As the title won't be seeing a release in Germany, interested gamers will have to import their copies from the UK or Austria (thanks Ve3D).
