Don’t Hate the Game, Hate the Player

EGM Is Dead….

Back from Holidays in France and I have a sad news. Electronic Gaming Monthly, which launched in March 1989, will stop production.

This month’s January issue will be the last published, stopping short of their 20th anniversary. Ziff Davis, their publishing company, sold the 1UP Network to Hearst Corporation’s UGO Entertainment but EGM wasn’t part of the deal do to overlapping of staff.

EGM isn’t the first to end though. In 2004 Ziff Davis ended publication of XBN, in 2006 they stopped the Official US PlayStation Magazine and last year Games for Windows Magazine (former Computer Gaming World) went under.

These are grim times and it’s sad to see all these old publications from our youth disappear. The Internet will not be denied.

A Vampyre Story Demo!

51cpardzgfl_ss400_1For those of you who are not aware yet A Vampyre Story is a new adventure game developed by Autumn Moon Entertainment, which was created by Bill Tiller.
Who is Bill Tiller you ask? why he’s only one of the geniuses behind classics such Monkey Island and the best point and click ever made i.e. The Dig.

From everything we’ve seen so far on the game it looks to be a pure throwback to the Golden Days of LucasArts so if you like point ‘n’ clicks and/or vampires be sure to get the demo.

You can download it on Worth Playing.
