You can help make Grim Dawn


Crate Entertainment, formed by some of the creators of Titan Quest, has announced their new project. Grim Dawn is a fantasy RPG which will hopefully be an action RPG like Titan Quest. These guys did a great job with that game so more of the same is a good thing. Grim Dawn is turning the fans for funding to develop the game. Gabe Newell tossed out this idea for a different model of game funding. Rather than looking for a publisher to give you money, just ask the fans. By pre-purchashing the game years in advance you help the studio make the game. It’s a risky move for the consumer since there is no guarantee on when (or if) the game will come out. It will pay off in the end when you have the game in your hand and you have the satisfaction of knowing you helped make it happen.

Tetris, the block dropping puzzle game, is the most popular mobile game of all time. It recently passed 100 million downloads. That’s a lot of blocks.

On a similar note of units sold, New Super Mario Bros Wii has sold over 10 million units since its recent launch. This makes it the fastest selling game ever. 90 more million to go and your almost as cool as Tetris.

Keep on gaming people!

I’m back!


Hey all! Just Letting you know things are about to get rolling again. I have gained a decent level of response and hits on the site and I learned a lot about doing this type of work.

Since my last update I have gamed avidly (of course). I finished Dragon Age, and I’ve played Braid, Dawn of Discovery, Risen, Half-Life 2: Episode 2 and various other titles. I bought a wii for my own Christmas gift and have played small doses of the new Super Mario Brothers.

I will leave you fine folks with a list about 2009 just because I’m different from everyone else.
