New Poll

Well it seems that although the biggest group of you have yet to notice the forum navbar. (scroll up!) Since the majority of you that have noticed it find it useful, I'm currently working on a new version that looks a lot better than the current one and doesn't slow your browser down as much. It can also be customised to display as much or as little as you want and whether or not it scrolls with the screen. The poll can be found here. (yes, it is on my to-do list to put the polls back on the front page)

The new poll is on what times you guys are available to take part in forum parties at the weekends.

Empire: Total War is #8 most wanted game of 2008

by | 1/25/2008 18:20 PM

...according to Voodoo Extreme.

Company Line: Empire: Total War will see the debut of 3D naval combat within the Total War franchise. PC Gamers will be able to intuitively command vast fleets or single ships upon seascapes rich with extraordinary water and weather effects that play a huge role in your eventual glorious success or ignominious defeat. After pummelling your enemy with cannon fire, close in to grapple their ship and prepare to board taking control your men as they fight hand to hand on the decks.

Bottom Line: Dude. It's Total War with boats. Awesome.

Thanks to Hairy Scary Man for the link.
