A bit later than usual today ... blame it on my FPS addiction and Global Ops. There is a new Buffy The Vampire Slayer (Xbox) Q&A over at Electric Playground talking with Harish Rao and David Stalker of Fox Interactive. If you want to know all about the new Black & White then head on over to PC.IGN for their Q&A with Lionhead Studios Peter Molyneux. Lone Gamers has a new Q&A with Piotr Krzywonosiuk of Tannhauser Gate about Mimesis Online giving more details about future developments, the development process, the games release, and more (thanks voodoo). RPG Vault serves up their 3th part of Gas Powered Games' "Dungeon Siege Q&A". Gamespy also has a brief interview with Big Huge Games programmer Jason Bestimt on Rise of Nations, talking the upcoming isometric RTS (thanks Blues).
Somewhere this week everybody should get his grubby hands on a copy of EA/Crave's "Global Operations", we had a chance to give it a test run and played it all the way through ... Campaign 1 has 13 missions, taking you all over the world and Campaign 2 is just the same but as the opposite team. The game sure is bloody (without extreme gore/limbs flying off), good gfx, loads of action. I somewhat found the AI to be lacking in respect to certain team members standing around in the open and getting shot without returning fire, especially the medic seems have issues while giving medical attention. The single player maps do not give many opportunities for 'sniper' fans to do their thing since there are not really any "open" or "wide" maps. So for all you First Person Shooter (FPS) and Counterstrike fans out there, 60 shots taken from all missions to keep you happy until you got your own copy! Njoy!!!
