Tom Clancy’s Endwar

Well, there’s a new game from the Tom Clancy group. This one breaks away from the others in that it’s a strategy game. Here’s a quick trailer.

The story is thus: The US and the European Federation have set up a “shield” designed to prevent Nuclear Missile launches. It works, and global Nuclear Warfare is averted forever. Unfortunately, Russia’s not too happy, especially with the US militarising space. Then, when Oil supplies are revealed to have been overstated, the price hugely increases. Russia makes Billions and uses it to expand its military. Obviously, the US and Europe are not too happy, and due to the uselessness of Strategic Nuclear strikes, the battles can now be fought large scale, on the ground, juts like in the other World Wars. World War 3 has begun.

Talk 4 Cash

I realise I haven’t posted in quite some time and I apologise for that, but I’ve been really busy. But now that I’m back, I’d like to let you all know about Talk 4 Cash.

Basically, Talk 4 Cash is a forum just like any other, only the difference with this one is that you actually are paid to post. You earn 3c a post, but only in certain areas of the boards. Still, could be a good earner. Plus everyone’s real friendly, so you can just have a good time without earning money.

Check it out. You won’t be disappointed.

The Future of Mankind

Clive Barker’s Jericho

This isn’t a review, as the game isn’t out yet. It’s just a small preview of the game. One quick note.

Clive. Barker. Is. Twisted.

For those of you who don’t know, Clive Barker is the creator of the Hellraiser and Candyman movies. He;s also the author of numerous horror novels. He’s made two forays into gaming so far as well. His first was the critically acclaimed Clive Barker’s Undying which, while it recieved huge critical acclaim, didn;t sell so good, due to not many people knowing about it. His second try, Demonik was cancelled.

Now, with Jericho Barker may actually do very well.
