It is shaping up to be quite a week of tabletop announcements. Hot on the heels of Paizo’s Pathfinder Core Rulebook going “gold”, Green Ronin has announced they will be putting out a paper & pencil Dragon Age RPG. The plan is to release a box set of the necessary rulebooks sometime this summer. Pathfinder comes out in mid August and they just sent it to the printers so this makes me wonder how long Green Ronin had to sit on this news. Congrats guys.
The rumor mill was set alight today with murmerings that Apple might be purchasing EA. Go ahead and take a look at the Gamasutra article that everybody seems to be pulling the news from, as it’s a fairly interesting read. I especially like the part where Wedbush Morgan’s very own Michael Pachter is quoted as saying it “sounds retarded”. That’s probably not something you want to be quoted saying.
Fallout 3 DLC is batting 1 for 3 with clean launches. 1up is reporting that the PC version of the Broken Steel DLC is, well, broken. This time it’s apparently not Bethesda’s fault but an issue with Windows Live DRM. So now I know I can blame Microsoft for ruining my Tuesday night plans of playing some new Fallout 3 DLC.
Lastly, anybody interested in giving Windows 7 a test drive before it’s initial release in October for free can do so. I believe the release candidate is good till June 1st, 2010. I would have forgotten if it wasn’t for LifeHacker.
