Ken Levine working on something new is always a good thing.


"Alright, I've been thinking. When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade - make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your damn lemons, what am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life's manager. Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons. Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons. I'm going to to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!"

Electronic Arts becomes the first video game publisher to join the Fortune 500 (Microsoft not included, of course, since their OS and office software department is larger). I used to be a huge EA hater for years, but it looks like they've found the perfect balance between profit margin, quality and IP creation.

Why are the NWN2 expansions the only x-packs listed? And, I'm no fan of them, but surely JRPGs should count for something, no?

There's another Slovakian RPG called Neverend that didn't make it to the Codex's list. Again featuring turn-based combat & a hawt chick.

 

And it's great that they listed Summoner. Darn fine RPG.

I've played a few of the more obscure ones like Hammer and Sickle. I bet this forum combined has covered every title on that list.
