Guild Wars & Stella Deus Honored: 4.28.05: Stella Deus is available at your local game shop right now, and Guild Wars is being shipped to stores all over North America AND Europe today. In honor of these 2 games hitting shelves, we've tweaked each one's wallpaper page.
Our Guild Wars section has more than doubled in size. We used to have 10 wallpapers in it, now we have 26 Guild Wars Wallpapers. And you'll find more sizes available for the Stella Deus section (except for #2...we couldn't get more sizes of #2 for some reason). So if you were discouraged by our only having 1600x1200 last time you checked, go look at our Stella Deus Wallpapers again.
Both of these games have some sweet non-wallpaper media, too. Check the Stella Deus preview I posted back on the 15th for some neat screens and movies, and look at the official Guild Wars site to see amazing videos of gameplay, and the climactic end of the last beta weekend.

Grandia 3: 3.30.05: Our general pattern is to report all our RPG news on the weekends in The Week in Review, but this announcement is HUGE; Square Enix has announced production of Grandia III for PlayStation 2. There aren't very many details known yet, but the game will be out in Japan this summer, and main characters' names have been revealed to be Yuuki (16, male), Alfina (16, Female), and Emerius (male, unknown age). Character design will be by You Yoshinari (known for Valkyrie Profile) and it will be directed by the same man who directed Grandia II, Hidenobu Takahashi. Like previous games, up to 4 characters will be present in your battle parties. The Week in Review will keep you posted further. Click the images below to see larger versions. Isn't mid-week news exciting? :)
