Ten years have passed since the end of Gothic 3 and the world has changed – the Southern Islands have become embroiled in a grueling conflict, and set the stage for the player to brave countless adventures in the guise of a nameless hero. In a vibrant and elaborate environment, decisions will have to be made which will change not only the future of the Southern Islands, but of the entire world…

WoW Arena season 3 will end soon.

All you WoW fan’s rejoice, arena season 4 is upon us :D.
Here’s the post from http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/

” We’re currently planning to end the third Arena season and begin Arena Season 4 on June 24, 2008. This exciting Arena season will introduce the Brutal Gladiator set, and will also allow players to purchase Arena Season 2 items using the honor system. Please note that we will be resetting all Arena team and personal ratings. Players will still retain their Arena points and teams with this reset. The team and personal rating will simply be reset to the default 1500, allowing all teams to once again compete for top honors with a fresh start.

Also, with the end of the third season, players on the top teams from each battlegroup will receive their end-of-season rewards. These include Arena-specific titles that they can display proudly until the end of the new season, and, for the best of the best, an Armored Nether Drake. Please also be aware that with the end of the current season, all previous end-of-season titles will be removed.”

OMG Thief 4!!!

Thief4
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the news this morning, everybody is talking about it, there are rumors about a new Thief game: Thief 4. No official news were ginven but I really hope those rumors are true, I’ve loved the Thief series, especially Thief 3 which is one of my alltime favorite game. There were several clues from which lead to the conclusion that there might be another Thief. Here is an interesting article I’ve got from http://www.gamespot.com:

Thief 4 infiltrating Eidos Montreal?

Source: Eidos Montreal hinted that the title for its next “AAA” project after the recently announced Deus Ex 3 will begin with a “T” on its official Web site (check the blurb on the bottom-right of the screen). That led to widespread speculation that the studio would be bringing back another Eidos-owned PC franchise with a cult following, Thief.

What we heard: “T” is for “tease.” As in, Eidos Montreal is a horrible tease for toying with true Thief fans’ emotions like this.

When one thinks of Eidos franchises beginning with the letter “T,” Tomb Raider is probably the first thing that comes to mind. But the next Tomb Raider game–Underworld–has already been unveiled, and is being developed by Crystal Dynamics. Underworld is also far enough out on the release schedule–fourth quarter of 2008–that it seems unlikely Eidos Montreal would already be gearing up for the follow-up.

That leaves Thief as the natural next choice, considering other Eidos-published “T” games like TimeSplitters and Thuderstrike: Operation Phoenix are either owned by other studios, or would be bizarre choices to bring back. Add into this that elsewhere on the Eidos Montreal site the studio says its first two games “will revive successful franchises” and the studio’s next project seems certain.

The official story: An Eidos representative said the company had no comment on the matter.

Bogus or not bogus?: Unless Eidos is full of sadists who enjoy dashing their customers’ hopes, this one is not bogus.

I really hope more news will be out soon, and I promise I’ll keep youall posted as soon as i hear something new.
