Heroes of Might and Magic V

Heroes of Might and Magic V is the latest installment of one of the more successful Might and Magic spin-offs. Since the demise of 3DO this latest installment was developed by Nival Interactive the same studio that produced Silent Storm. It has been hotly anticipated since its announcment a little over a year ago. I sat down with the game to see how it stands up compared to the venerable Heroes of Might and Magic games of the past.

Video - Witcher Interview Part 1

Here is Part 1 of a three part video podcast series with the creators of Witcher. This segment focuses on the games' combat dynamics.

X-Men: The Last Stand (Spoilers Alert!)

One Fastball Special to go please! Even though it may not have the same effect as it does in the comic book, there is still nothing like seeing Wolverine get hurled by Colossus. X-Men: The Last Stand, or X3, starts off with a big bang and a big toss.
This third time around brings Magneto and his followers (aka The Brotherhood) up against Charles Xavier and his X-Men. A "cure" has been discovered for the mutant gene, and the race is on to save/destroy (depending which side you're on) the carrier of this antibody. Loaded with lots of special effects, action, a jam-packed script, lots of surprises and a ride on the emotional roller coaster—X3 is an intense experience.

Wii Price Confirmed

The official press release from Nintendo landed in my inbox only seconds ago:

"May 25, 2006

Following its overwhelming debut at E3 2006, Nintendo today announced the current fiscal year unit shipment forecast for its new home game system, Wii™. Nintendo also confirmed that the price of the Wii system, which incorporates unique freehand control, will not exceed $250 in America, or ¥25,000 in Japan.
