Random Wednesdays

The trailer for a BioShock Infinite fan film that we saw last week has been joined by…well…an entire fan film, about two brothers and their experiments with the plasmids that serve as the…magic system, I guess, in the game. There’s also this fan-made short, which re-frames the entire…game, really…as some sort of bizarre reality show.

The game was on sale a while ago, by the way; hopefully you were able to nab a copy if you were waiting to pick up the game on the cheap.

Let’s jump over to Rhode Island, where 38 Studios (or what’s left of it) is preparing to sell off Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and all associated assets. Or, well, Rhode Island is preparing to sell it off…it’s really just a mess, isn’t it?

Curt Schilling wasn’t able to get the state’s lawsuit against the studio heads dismissed, by the way, so that’s going ahead.

And…let’s jump out of Rhode Island again.

Might & Magic X: Legacy is looking really, really good. And Legend of Grimrock 2 is sounding like…well, the developers seem to be having fun.

PC Gamer got a preview of the new Thief game recently.

Guido Henkel’s Deathfire got a decent bit of coverage in the last week; he did a short interview with The Nerd Cave, and also blogged about his reasons for having “bind on equip” items in what is going to be a single-player game.

And Neverwinter evidently suffered a rather devastating exploit that flooded the game with its in-game currency recently; Cryptic Studios had to rewind the game seven hours to remediate.

    Interesting note: The game was on sale on Steam once since the time of 38’s bankruptcy. I wonder who was responsible, and how much money Rhode Island made off of it.
