PNG Daily 3/20/09: Working for the Weekend

WE<3EA

Joystiq has an article that contains some excerpts from an interview Gamasutra did with the General Manager of EA Partners, David DeMartini, over here.  It gives me high hopes for my Mirror’s Edge sequel.  EA, you’ve been doing it so right.

Wizards of the Coast has an article up here about the history of the Druid and Bard classes in D&D throughout the various editions.  This includes their current role in 4th Edition in the new Player’s Handbook 2.  People, all I have to say is Wizards is gouging us at the 4E.

I apparently have let the Friday Dev. Diaries over at Giant Bomb slip through my Internet Sifter and I couldn’t be any more full of regret and shame.  They’ve been following developer Starbreeze Studios over the past few weeks getting the dish on Chronicles of Riddick:  Assault on Dark Athena.  You’ll find some interesting terms those crazy Swedes used during the the making of one of our most anticipated games here.

Lastly, I don’t think you should go through this weekend if you have a couple of hours to kill without giving the latest Bombcast a listen.  If you dig our podcasts then you will love what the guys over at Giant Bomb put out every Tuesday.  I highly recommend the episode put out on 3-17.  LINK!

PNG Daily 3/19/09: In Diesel We Trust

Yo girl, let me get dat gamertag...

Here at PNG, we just don’t know how to let our obsession with celebrity created or backed video games go.  We ranted and raved about 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, and we have yet to fully begin our massive marketing push for Chronicles of Riddick:  Assault on Dark Athena.  Much like Mr. Cent, Vin’s got your back when it comes to punching and stabbing your friends online.  Check out 1up’s article here about how he let Starbreeze know what’s up.

As my “internet sifter” has been most unkind with grids news, you’ll have to settle for some digital grids information.  1Up has a post up giving the low down on Hasbro Family Game Night that hit Xbox Live on Wednesday with a ballsy catch.  The shell can be downloaded for free, but each of the four games it launched with cost $10 a piece (800 MS points).  It seems to have struck a nerve with our fellow bloggers out there as there as it seems a bit much to be charging for Yahtzee.  However, if these games support online play, it’s way better than spending the $5 – $8 on their board or card counter parts just to have it sit in a closet most of the time.

Kotaku has some numbers out for Resident Evil 5’s sales numbers out in Europe over the weekend.  Apparently Bono is going to be pissed.

Speaking of numbers and on a completely unrelated note, I think Duke Nukem Forever is coming out this year.
