Bored with sandcastles?
ith the sounds of chanting monks and catchy folk tunes while you build your castle and defend it from the attacking hordes of Duke Beauregard and his friends, Stronghold turns out to be a wonderful mix between City Building and Real Time Strategy.

While it has a more martial elelment Impression's City Builders, Firefly's Stronghold offers a lot more (micro-) resource management than games like Age of Kings or Cossacks.

It just hit the stores here in Europe and it seems the US will be taken by storm pretty soon.

Bored? Find out more about Stronghold or just downlaod the demo.

Lords of the Realm 3 Announced
ulling up Impressions's main page shows that we need no longer wait to see what it is they're working on next:

Impressions Games™ and Sierra™ today announced development of Lords of the Realm® III, the long-awaited return of the companies' highly successful Lords of the Realm series of games. The ultimate medieval simulation, Lords III covers the entire life of being a lord in the middle ages - castle building and design, rural estate management, acquiring knights and soldiers to make armies, warfare and conquest, politics and diplomacy, and the struggle with or against the Church, and with the rising merchant class. The elements that made the Lords of the Realm series a best seller worldwide are now powered by an all-new 3-D graphics engine designed to catapult the game to the forefront of the strategy genre in late 2002. More information can be found at http://www.lords3.com.

What's Going On?
hanks to the 3 people (Cherub bobT, Sigbjørn Koksæter, and Quinn) who dropped me a line informing me of this little mystery currently being drawn out for its full effect on the Impressions website. Looks to me like a logo for their upcoming game, to be revealed no later than October 18th. It's still pretty fuzzy at the moment, but it's looking to be like there might be some fisticuffs going on .

Going to the zoo
e all know the zoo from the Cleopatra expansion, but if you think that's not enough of a challenge...how about Zoo Tycoon?
Angel Thunder, the lucky man, had the priviledge of playing the game well before it is released and wrote us a neat review.

Why are you still here?
