Over the past few months I have been trying out one of the myriad of online browser-based games, named Ogame. This game is produced by GameForge and is a real time strategy space game, where you colonize planets, mine resources, build defenses, attack neighbors and build alliances. This game has some pros and several BIG cons, but first the good news. The layout of the game is great, with easy, clearly marked buttons and panels, but as in so many other areas, it’s what’s on the inside that really counts. Click past the break for the down and dirty details!
With all these press conferences occurring between major game publishers, the PC Gaming Alliance has decided against the having one. Randy Stude, President of PCGA, stated to Bigdownload, that E3 is a trade show for retailers and that while console games and hardware are mostly sold in brick and mortar stores, the number of PC titles sold in stores is shrinking rapidly.
But has he forgotten that one of the reasons PC titles sold in store are shrinking is the fact many of these stores don’t carry PC games due to the non-existence of a used game market for these Games? I haven’t seen a GameStop carrying PC games (outside World of Warcraft) in some time. E3 is also a trade show where thousands of members of the press report–live blogging, video streaming, twittering, etc–what they see and hear to those who consume the media.
