1C’s international publishing director, Darryl Still, has said that due to retail “failing to support” boxed PC games, publishers will go the digital format only route by 2011.
Still claims that retail stores show disdain for PC titles by refusing to stock certain titles, and by pushing PC merchandise “to the back of the store”.

The new expansion pack for Theatre of War 2- Centauro, has a trailer.

WWII RTS Men of War is to expand this autumn with Red Tide, a standalone effort giving the player charge of a bunch of Soviet marines called the Black Coats.
We’re reliably informed that 1C’s game is one of the best current strategy titles on the market. We may even play it to find out for ourselves. We’re that intrigued.

NecroVisioN has passed classification in Australia, and can now be sold in the country.
Farm 51 and 1C’s army/demon shooter had to undergo some changes to receive the MA15+ rating, like changing blood spray to gray dust, but those looking forward to the FPS can now at least purchase it.
Whether it will be as gory as you like, is another matter entirely.
More over on GamePolitics.

The Australian authorities have refused to grant Farm 51 FPS Necrovision a release thanks to excessive violence, Gamespot reports.
The title is the latest in a long string of games to fall foul of the fact Australia doesn’t allow adults to play adult videogames. The country has no 18 rating for games.
Full thing through there.

Lovely. Who hasn’t wanted to drive a tank over someone at one point in their life?
