Anox Demo Impressions

I installed the newly released Anachronox demo (story) this afternoon, and gave it a test drive. While the game looks to have a LOT of potential, with a vast storyline and lots of interesting RPG features, I'm concerned that the game doesn't feel "done". The movement is quite stuttery, and the camera can be easly forced into flaking out. It's not as bad as Super Mario-64, but it's irritating none the less. I'm still considering getting the full version tho-the storyline could be FASCINATING.

A.T. Hun comments: The controls aren't too bad once you get used to it. It seems like quite a deep story. I just don't know if I have the patience for this kind of game. I have to think enough in my everyday life. I prefer games where I can just twitch.

Anachronox Demo Released

ION Storm has released the demo for Anachronox. It's a tidy 92.3M, so you modemers might want to pack a lunch. You can get it from Eidos and 3D Gamers. Thanks Blue.

SoF Finished

I just managed to finish Soldier of Fortune. I mentioned to The Master that I really like SoF, although I can't really put my finger on why. Maybe it's the visceral nature of it all. To top it all off, it is the first game I've ever finished solely in Linux! SoF for Linux has been showing up for virtually nothing. I recommend you pick up a copy.

J.t.Qbe comments: Lately I've been seeing all the older Loki games for Linux for $9.95 at Electronics Boutique (and its online equivalent). Get 'em while they're hot!
