    Imperial Glory anyone?

    Pyrostudios announces new Game...

    The website of Pyrostudios has been revamped and the company has just announced a new game that is on the works...sadly no Commandos 4 yet but a game called Imperial Glory, perhaps for the days of Napoleon (not sure, haven't checked it yet).

    The screenshots of the game (advertisement) looks promising.

    A Total War challenger is brewing in a dark corner of E3.

    2:00 PM -

    Sometimes I wonder at the priorities of publishers. Went to the Eidos booth for a 2:00 appointment and took a look at a bunch of mediocre to really good games, then I find the gem of the bunch - a potential Total War killer hidden in the deepest darkest depths of the booth. If I had that game, I'd be trumpeting it and trying to captalize on some the buzz surrounding Rome: Total War. Of course, what do I know - I'm no longer a marketing guy and they always know what they're doing.

    OK - sarcasm off.

    I've posted a topic about this in the Praetorians section (since my first thaught was "Hey! A Praetorians look-alike!"
    I'm very interested in this new game and I wish that a forum section comes as soon as possible!

    @m, can you post the link to Eidos' E3 site? Can't find it myelf.

    In the flash banner on top of the page, click the "check upcoming releases", might need to disable your firewall to see this.

    Thanks, I rarely open the Eidos main page, always going directly to the forums.

    Yeah well I knew they had an E3 page last year, so I figured they would have one this year too.

    Yeah, I remember that one!
    I'm thinking of putting up a simple site with every Imperial Glory stuff on it. Will look really simple, trust me.

    There is a "Commandos tactical shooter" on it's way. It will be released somewhere in 2005. That are all the details we know so far.

    What does that mean? what style of game play is that considered?

    I think you can compare it with Ghost Recon games. It's not shooting like a mad man as in most war games of these days. You need to carefully plan each action you take. This is a guess though.

    Thats cool. Although I didnt buy Ghost Recon I did enjoy the demo a lot.

    Cant wait to see what they can do.

    Here it is!
    Imperial Glory media page

    It's not yet finished. Will have to fix some things, one of them is the text color.
    Hopefully I can already do that tomorrow. I can't guarantee this though...
    Will try to keep the site up to date. Can't guarantee this neither.

    ***EDIT***
    Changed the color of the text. Also changed url's of the images because I was stealing Eidos' and GameSpot's (damn pay sites!!) bandwidth by direct linking to theirs.

    ***EDIT #2***
    As long as there won't come new media available, the site is totally up to date.

    interesting, normally when i ask someone "how's it going?" they respond "fine" or "ok" or "could be better". i didn't ask "what's going on", i said hello and asked how's it going. geez, the whole world is defensive these days so i guess i'll just say nevermind.

    ...how many guys call you doc?
