In the past week, first it was still BioShock 2: Sea of Dreams. Then it was reported, falsely, that the ‘Sea of Dreams’ subtitle had been dropped, and that the title was just plain BioShock 2. Now it seems as though all the fuss was for nothing since it has once again been confirmed that the name is BioShock 2: Sea of Dreams, and that the name won’t change. Good, now the waves have calmed, stop rocking the boat!
2K admitted that it didn't actually know about the title, and now it's just BioShock 2- again. For goodness sake shut up all ready! work on the game and when you release it, just decide then.

Now, some have said not to rush to conclusions, and it might mean that Shepard dies in a metaphorical sense, as all the little gamers cry into their hankies and whimper, “Say it ain’t so!” Shepard is such a generic name anyway- good riddance, I say.
So, it’s been suggested that Shepard may die physically or in a more metaphorical sense. How many ways can Shepard be killed? Let’s see…
• Dies during a prolonged elevator ride (they say that this has been fixed in Mass Effect 2; we’ll see).
• Gets massacred after his/her two stupid AI buddies get incapacitated.
• Accidentally gets wiped out by one of the team member’s biotic powers.
• Accidentally wipes him/herself out with biotic powers.
• Dies after a long drop in the APC while traveling across a planet’s surface.
• Gets blown up inside APC that enemies can’t possibly miss, even with spitwads.
• Dies after his/her oxygen supply runs out while trying to hack a container…again.
• Dies during impossibly long conversation with one of the boring inhabitants of a planet.
• Sentenced to death after assaulting said inhabitant because of his/her impatience.
• Killed during conversation for asking too many questions.
• Kills him/herself after gender confusion/ identity crisis.
• Killed by exploding container just randomly lying around.
• Starves to death due to absence of edible food or drink anywhere.
• Mentally assassinated by an Asari.
• Gets whacked after borrowing money from a loan shark to pay ridiculous prices for decent armor and weaponry, and not paying said loan shark back.
• Gets lost and dies of exhaustion while running endlessly, trying to find his/her way.
• Dies of exhaustion while running endlessly.
• Killed after being stalked by disgruntled fan.
• Normandy crashes and blows up after cocky pilot Joker tries to steer ship with his feet.
• Shepard only dreams that he/she dies.
• Death is just a marketing ploy, and Shepard doesn’t really die in the game.
Despite the so called dying of gaming magazines, Game Informer is still one of the top selling magazines in the US. It's ahead of Time, TV Guide, Sports Illustrated, Cosmo, Newsweek; even Playboy and Maxim!
Damn, it looks like FileFront is closing down tomorrow. I have an account on there, and I've downloaded stuff, but luckily I don't store anything on there. It seems that if you do, you'd better hurry and get it moved...
"We regret to inform you that due to the current economic conditions we are forced to indefinitely suspend the FileFront site operations on March 30, 2009. If you have uploaded files, images or posted blogs, or if you would like to download some of your favorite files, please take this opportunity to download them before March 30th when the site will be suspended.
We would like to give a warm thank you to all of you who have been part of the FileFront communities we have built together. Your support has had a meaningful impact for all of us here at FileFront. Again, we want to give you a sincere “thank you” for your support over the years and wish you all the very best."
And they say that the video game industry is recession- proof...
Update: A few days later and FileFront is back!
According to a survey that polled 1 130 on whether they would prefer an evening of playing games or having a romantic roll in the hay with their partner, 32% said they'd play games instead. Of course the men polled were married...
Another question asked whether they would rather have sex or play a new game- 72% said they'd take the new game!
The thing here is that playing games can last for hours where as sex doesn't- not usually anyway.
If you came across the blog yesterday, you’ll probably have noticed the post that read “3D Realms Shocker: Duke Nukem Forever Delayed For at Least Another Five Years, Possibly Cancelled”. As most of you have probably guessed, this was an april fool’s day joke, although the part about reading about the id Tech 4 engine in GEAR magazine is true, except that was also an april fool’s day joke, except the mag had a review of Duke Nukem Forever for the Xbox 360 as part of their prank. If only!

The name Duke Nukem Forever was first thought up after Duke Nukem 3D came out in 1996, and this particular title was going to be a platform game similar to Duke Nukem 1 or 2. That title was cancelled and the name was recycled to be used in what has been nominated one of the most controversial titles of all time. It has won several vapourware awards over the years.
The next time it reared its head was in 2001, once again at E3, then using the much prettier Unreal engine. They started off with the Unreal Engine, and eventually built their way up to using the Unreal Tournament build code.
Recently, there was talk of the game switching to the id Tech 4 engine, used for Prey, another title that had taken ages to come out, and was originally a 3D Realms game (they ended up being the publisher). The latest game to use this engine is Wolfenstein, currently still in development and due for a release later this year. There was a mention of the recent engine change in GEAR magazine.
Scott Miller followed up with his own comments by saying, “Years ago I said that we screwed up Duke Nukem Forever, and now I mean we’ve really done it this time. The thing is that the development costs have become too much, and even though we’ve talked about switching to the new engine, I’m not sure that we’ll be around to see it through the way we’ve been going. We might just have to call it a day, stick our tails between our legs and cut our losses. To continue development with id Tech 4 would mean a possible five to eight year delay for DNF, and at this time we’ve faced major backlash and we could be heading for a financial crisis if we decide to go for it. Unfortunately the worldwide economic crisis just isn't in our favour at the moment.”
Joe Siegler added that, “We wanted Duke Nukem Forever to be perfect, and we came this close. Now it’s just a perfect mess, a real f$$k-up! It makes me so pi$$ed. I just can’t believe it.”
Continue development with id Tech 4 and possibly 3D Realms goes bankrupt.
Cancel Duke Nukem Forever.

The original developers of Operation Flashpoint, Bohemia, aren't involved with the project, and are instead focusing on ArmA, the series of spiritual successors. Apparently they are in doubt over whether this new Operation Flashpoint, developed by Codemasters, is an official sequel.
There was supposed to be another game, called StarCraft: Ghost, but it ended up being 'indefinitely postponed' in 2005.
There is an eagerly anticipated sequel, StarCraft II, which is set for a release sometime this year.
3D Realms has released some old games as freeware, that were once released under the old Apogee Software name, lately.
The list is as follows:
Monuments of Mars

I could once do a pretty good Duke Nukem voice, but I look nothing like Duke though. I don't take steroids, I guess.
What does AAA stand for?
It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
