Overlord Released + Poll

Congratulations for Triumph Studios on the release of Overlord! We have felt it coming but its finally ready to be ordered. Please congratulate 'our' developers in this thread by Markgil.

Chowguy came up with an appropriate idea for a new poll. The question is what reflects best your feelings towards Overlord! It should make an interesting poll! Get your predictions ready!

The previous poll ended quite predictably. Almost half the people that voted indeed prefer Emperor setting for their AI. Squire was least popular!

Overlord Demo released

Taking control of a mysterious figure that has inherited the legacy of the long-dead evil Overlord, the player emerges near death from the ruins of the old Overlord's Dark Tower. Only the player's actions will determine if they will rise to become the new all-powerful Overlord; it's all up to how bad they want to be in order to succeed ... evil or really evil! With a dark sense of humor, the game immerses players in twisted parodies of classic fantasy stories and characters. In a unique twist, players will have control over an army of Minions that will use their unique skills to fetch, fight and die for their new Overlord. Throughout the game players will actively control a horde of these gremlin-like creatures that will follow every bidding no matter how whimsical or life threatening it may be.
(slightly corrected quote from Gamespy)

Gaming in Different Cultures - A Survey of Sorts

Angel Zen, HeavenGames' Chief of Technology, Exco Member, and all-around groovy guy, has started a thread in the Gaming Discussions Forum over at HG Main.
How do you think gaming is viewed in different cultures outside of the USA? StarCraft is very big in South Korea (so much so that they have musicals and dramas based on the game), MMOGs are very popular throughout Asia, and strategy games such as Knights of Honor, 1701AD, etc. are very popular in Europe; North America seems to be more about First Person Shooters - or is that all just a myth?

Seeing how we have a diverse staff and audience I thought I'd ask your views here. What sort of differences can you see between different cultures when it comes to gaming?

It's for a project he's working on to bring in some PR for HG, and he's aprreciate any inputs you may have.
