Atari has fallen… AGAIN! At this rate, Atari (or whoever’s the force behind Atari) will buy the name “Interplay” and start publishing under that label, instead, since there’s more good will for Interplay.

You know, reviewing that list again: wow. It’s possible some of these won’t completely suck, but doesn’t seem particularly likely!

I thought Tomorrow War was being looked forward to by a significant portion of qt3?

I’ve heard some good things about Ascension to the Throne (strategy/RPG), Blood Magic (aka Dawn of Magic) seemed to receive a reasonable response to the recent demo release and King’s Bounty is the game from Katauri (ex Elemental, Space Rangers 2). Doesn’t look all bad, depending on the localisations.

Yeah if Atari publishes them starforce free I may buy some of them. Here’s hoping that they can sign up with an online distribution service for those like Stardock or Steam.

I am but I don’t know how well it will translate. It did well enough in Russia to merit an expansion called Factor K.

Not on 1C’s list but worth mentioning are 7.62 (the Brigade E5 sequel) and the RPG Not A Time For Dragons
