It's been a while since I posted anything, but this is definitely something worth mentioning. Chances are you already heard of this project, but Harebrained Schemes is trying to fund a new Shadowrun game through Kickstarter. If you've played the original, you know how awesome this concept is and what would be more awesome than a new one? They have already reached their goal of 400 000 USD, so the game will be made, but if they reach one million dollars, we'll get a whole lot more. Anyway, I just wanted to tell you about this, because I think it excites me more than than any other Kickstarter project. The current release date is set to December 21st, 2012. What are your thoughts on Shadowrun? Played it before? Excited about the new one?
Oh... my... god! This must be the most awesome thing to happen in the history of mankind. So apparently a newspaper agency in a neighbouring city of mine decided to host an art competition in collaboration with a local power company and the municipal government. People were free to send their works of art to the agency, which would later allow people to vote for the best picture. Well, apparently this particular agency isn't too familiar with Internet culture and probably had no idea that one of the accepted contributions was in fact a trollface.
19 winners were chosen by the voters and the trollface picture landed in 10th place. What does this mean? Well, this means that Trollhättan's county management will spend tax payers' money to paint Trollfaces all over town. I should be outraged since it's a waste of money, but it's just too hilarious!
The fact that a World of Darkness MMORPG is in development is nothing new as it has been mentioned a few times before by CCP. However, no official announcement has been made... until a couple of days ago. If you are familiar with EVE Online, you know what CCP is capable of in terms of depth in MMORPGs. EVE is one of the most comlpex MMOs on the market, and one can only hope that this one will follow the same pattern.
Of course, it would have been nice to see another Vampire The Masquerade game, but since this is done by the EVE developers I really think this could turn into something fantastic. What do you think?
Oh yeah, don't forget to check out the video in the second link.
