    Active Time Belligerence - Currents

    In this issue of Currents, RPGamer reacts to Final Fantasy: ATB, EA's Gabrielle Toledano comments on women in the video game industry, and same sex relationships in SWtOR raise questions. Oh, GREE also shatters dreams.

    CURRENTS

    Love how we're now getting 'issues' like this. Pray tell, when will we see the next Current, next month possibly?

    Hey DarkRPGMaster,

    As of the start of this year, I'm the new Currents host. Currents is being reintroduced to RPGamer as a biweekly column, so you can expect another issue the week after next.

    Maybe it should be called Re-Currents this time. It just keeps coming back.

    Currents: Revengeance

    Seriously though, you'll see a consistent biweekly posting schedule moving forward.

    I think abortion was the wrong term there. I think he meant aberration.

    Personally I think it's a new crowning achievement to gaming stupidity

    Seems THQ also bit it this week. Can't say when I last bought something by THQ or Atari though, so I don't see much of a loss.

    i was sad, mainly because of the WWE games. But it seems 2K has acquired the rights the that gaming franchise. Would also like to see Darksiders find a new home too.

    Unfortunately, absolutely nobody bid on Vigil (the Darksiders people). There's a slim chance the franchise will still find a home... apparently Platinum is making noises about possibly acquiring it now that it's likely to be priced super-cheap, but who knows if any of the original staff would still be involved?

    There's an interesting kerfuffle going on around the South Park game. Ubisoft bought the rights to publish the game off of THQ, but the South Park company is filing a suit to try to keep the rights to find a new publisher itself. I have a feeling the legal wrangle means that the game probably won't be coming out in March, even if it's done. Poor Obsidian.

    A couple of extra months to QA isn't going to hurt. ESPECIALLY since it's Obsidian

    Sounds like Matt and Trey don't trust Ubisoft on it.

    Well, the lawsuit was filed before the auction, so unless they've said anything specific since, it's not personal towards Ubisoft, it's about the South Park company having a say over where its property goes. For all we know, the companies will have a chat and make a deal, which would result in more money for both companies and less going towards the lawyers. Ubisoft really isn't that bad a choice to publish the game... at least it'll probably market it and won't stuff it full of DLC or something.

    Aaaand Crytek saved the core team of Vigil Games, opening a USA studio in Austin with them.

    Doesn't look like they'll be doing Darksiders unless Crytek also buys up the IP, but awesome that the team will still be working.
