Not good. I look to the European developers for the future of PC, especially RPG titles.
I think the U.S. is way too geared up about consoles for all the wrong reasons, and also that the big dogs,as we say, have taken over the majority of companies—not to produce computer games, but to produce the most marketable, profitable entertainment experience—whatever that is.

I have nothing against the console gaming experience—or gamers who get off on consoles. It's the marketers that think it's the be-all and end-all of gaming and are only in it for the $$$ that make me tired. Of course there are plenty of those in the pc gaming world, too.

I regret to hear that Jo-Wood is in financial straits. They have produced some great games—I liked Europa 1400:The Guild, as well as the Gothis titles.

Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.
