Prayer Can Get You Into The Age Of Conan


Age of Conan is a MMORPG with a pretty long story, since its development started back in 2003. Produced by Funcom, it should arrive on the PC in late May, 2008, while Xbox 360 users should wait until 2009. The first installment in the planned Age of Conan series is Hyborian Adventures, currently in beta stage, but to have the advantage of playing, it takes more than just subscribing your email address...

Now, you need to pray. Not just some prayer from a book, because you should be original. What you need to do to get into the Age of Conan is submit your prayer to the game's gods, via the official boards, and if your faith is rock solid, you will be admitted into the lands of Hyboria!The contest ends on the 9th of March, at 12:00GMT, so you have plenty of time to think, sit back and then right the prayer that could make Hyboria's gods grant you safe passage into their realm!

Velvet Assassin Is Near


Previously known as Sabotage, Gamecock Media and Replay Studios' stealth action game, Velvet Assassin is based on the life of World War II allied secret agent Violette Reine Elizabeth Bushell Szabo. In the game, you are going to be in charge of the agent Violette Summer, and yourmain goal is to "take care" of various Nazi objectives.

Sascha Jungnickel, Creative Director at Replay Studios, said "From the start we've wanted a game with a strong female lead that stays true to the history of Violette Szabo while pulling players into a world of dark intrigue.", and also stated that "Sabotage" was an "overused" title for the game, so Velvet Assassin matches much better the idea and feeling they want to send to the player.

For now, the screenshots look pretty good, and if Time Hesse, Gamecock's Executive Producer, is right, we may soon have another great stealth action title ready to offer some great gaming hours. "I have to say, the Replay crew have outdone themselves by making Violette into one of the best looking stealth-killers ever.", he concluded, but we'll have to wait until late 2008 to see for ourselves if he says the truth or not...

Lost Empire Immortals Is Gold


Paradox Interactive goes into space with its strategy games, and this time we're talking about modern 3D graphics, unlike their Hearts of Iron or Europa Universalis game series, where strategy was the key, and graphics were completely outdated (anyway, the games in those series are some of the best pure strategy games ever done!). Now, their new Lost Empire: Immortals game just reached gold status, and you have to know about it...

Lost Empire Immortals



The game is rated "Everyone" by ESRB and 7+ by PEGI, and comes for a SRP of USD 29.99/EUR 29.99. For your money, you will get the following features:- Colossal Galactic Map consisting of 5000+ star systems
- Lead one of 6 major races to stellar domination
- Encounter 28 unique minor races with their own agendas and motives
- Open-ended gameplay and alternative victory conditions provide phenomenal longevity
- Wage war in space or planetside displayed in the new 3D rendered dual warfare system
- Research a vast multi-nodal tree of 150+ technologies split into 11 categories
- Customisable ship design and construction
- Assignable leaders to boost all aspects of the empire including warmongering, production, research and diplomacy
- Reducing player micromanagement through a revamped sleek interface

Why won't they also sell some spare time to play it? I know how much (excellent, otherwise) hours I killed with Hearts of Iron, and that's why I don't even want to think about falling into Lost Empire's temptation...but I guess I will do that, sooner or later!
