This Week In Gaming

  • The Shattering most likely to happen tomorrow: Among other things, the world is supposed to end in WoW tomorrow. Race/class combos will be available, and beta testing is officially over.
  • Y U No Let Me Use Swastika: Stephan Tolouse explains why swastikas are still a big no-no.
  • Atlus brings Radiant Historia for the DS Feb 2011: Atlus’ newest venture, Radiant Historia, is, as described: “a fantasy Quantam Leap.”

Rumor Mill

  • Bioware will be revealing their new game at the VGA awards. It should have “mass” appeal.
  • Not really a rumor but here’s some insight to as why EA has taken over control of marketing for SWTOR. As you may know Bioware is a partner company in EA. Basically they get all the EA funding with out EA having control on content or company organization. Lucas Arts use to be in charge of SWTOR’s marketing but Bioware has been pushing to market the game themselves. The compromise was to have an EA team do the marketing which is also composed of Bioware people. So for those that are worried about Lucas having complete control over the IP, don’t worry. Because of the contract Lucas Arts signed, Bioware has 100% control of all gameplay, transactions, and story.
