The Bard Returns

I was rather young the first time I played The Bards Tale on my Commodore 64. To be honest, I can not remember if it was 1, 2 or 3. I do remember that I enjoyed playing it and for me that is enough to get excited about this preview of the new Bards Tale gaming being developed by InXile Entertainment.

If the game is half as entertaining as the InXile website, then this is going to be a great game. A word of warning about their website. Dont piss off the guard. He has a nasty way of getting you back.

Doom III For Free, Sort Of…

Apparently, a three level demo of Doom III has found its way into the publics hands. The game is not a full version, but rather the non-interactive demo used at E3. I am sure many of you came to our site to find a copy of Doom III, but I am sorry to say we do not have it. If you do find it, keep in mind it is a very rough version of the game. It may not even work on your system. If you want more info, head over to to read an interesting article about the whole debacle.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

If you loved Grand Theft Auto 3s world, crimes, and missions, well have I got something to tell you! Theres a totally new bigger, bolder, faster, twisted, and more weirder version that will remove all your boredom and heighten your action! Thats right, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City has come for your PS2!

Vice city has more interesting locations, awesome new vehicles, bikes, great 80s music, and even better realistic graphics! Plus, the missions are longer, more interesting, and its always a surprise to see what mission you have next. Either its delivering drugs, breaking windows, killing gangs, or flying around in your chopper. Myself, I just like driving around like a banshee killing anything that moves. =D

This is a “Must Get” game, so make sure to get your copy soon!
