PNG Daily 5/4/2009: We Are So Sorry

Paizo bros down after sending Pathfinder off to the presses.

Paizo bros down after sending Pathfinder off to the presses.

Due to some issues with bro’ing down ourselves on Friday, we let our readers down and didn’t get a Daily up.  We promise that it will probably maybe never happen again.

I took the liberty of borrowing the picture for the Daily from Paizo’s own blog post.  They’ve been burning the midnight oil and it appears the 576 page core rulebook for Pathfinder is off to the printers.  I believe it still has an August 13th release date and we’ll be sure to pick up a copy at Gencon ’09 and let you know how it is.  Maybe we’ll do some sexy shots of it right after we grab it from their booth.  Congrats Paizo, Jim Bradford is wetting his pants in excitement.

Stardock has been working hard since easter to get Gas Powered Games’ Demigod up and running reliably for multiplayer matches.  Kotakuhas a post up with some information from Stardock’s President and CEO Brad Wardell stating that Demigod’s network issues should be resolved this week.  To make up for the network issues players have been experiencing since launch, Stardock is giving every person who purchased or purchases the game by May 10th a coupon for half off another copy.

For those of you that haven’t been following the drama between Namco and BottleRocket over the current gen version of the brawler Splatterhouse, you might get a kick out of the little slap fight contained in the links to 1up.  Namco has apparently contracted people that were working on the game at BottleRocket to come on over, pull up a chair, and finish the f*ing game.

I will leave you with this article concerning yet another motion control rumor for Xbox 360 courtesy of Engadget.  What do you guys think?  Is that boat real?


PNG Daily 4/14/09: Doing it Right!

While Kotaku reporting that Gamestop broke Demigod’s release date is interesting, you’ll find something really interesting over at Demigod’s actual homepage.  In addition to coming up with an interesting way of handling DRM with their GOO (courtesy of WIRED’s Gamelife), Stardock seems to be going along the right track with digital distribution.  They are selling the digital copy of the game for $10 less than what you would pay for a physical copy of the game.  While I haven’t been following Demigod closely at all, $40 is well known to be a sweet spot with the staff here at PNG.  Gas Powered Games and Stardock, you guys are doing it so right!

It’s rough in these oh so hard economic times, even more so if you’ve lost your job.  However, if you happen to be interested in being an Assistant Art Coordinator or Marketing Content Coordinator for a traditional gaming company, Fantasy Flight Games is hiring!  The gigs are located in Roseville, Minnasota so you have to either live close by or be willing to relocate probably.

There’s a big rumor making the rounds on the nets about the future of Warhawk.  Sony has registered “Starhawk” and 1up was all over it.  I love me some of the original Warhawk for PS1 and it blows my mind to think of it in space.  After all, space is cool.
