Something new. We had a meeting this week and it was suggested there’s a better way of getting up all the little stories quickly. Could be better for everyone. Let’s see if it works.

Jon Shafer has said the main reason he left Civilization developer Firaxis and took a job with Stardock was because of the fun and unique approach to creating games the firm’s CEO Brad Wardell harbors.

Sins of a Solar Empire’s latest micro-expansion, Diplomacy, will not only be released during winter 2010 but it will also be getting a Beta sometime this fall.
Diplomacy will increase the number of options players can use to take over the galaxy with ambassadorial methods.
A third expansion has also been promised for the title, but there’s no word on when it will be released.
More over on Joystiq.

Stardock boss Brad Wardell has told those still playing pirated copies of Demigod to accept they’re thieves.
The game debuted at number three in the US PC charts, but Wardell said that doesn’t make playing hooky versions of the game acceptable.
“Demigod is heavily pirated,” said the exec on his blog. “And make no mistake, piracy pisses me off.
“If you’re playing a pirated copy right now, if you’re one of those people on Hamachi or GameRanger playing a pirated copy and have been for more than a few days, then you should either buy it or accept that you’re a thief and quit rationalizing it any other way.”

Stardock boss Brad Wardell has promised that Demigod’s multiplayer connectivity is to be fixed this week.
There’s a bunch of information on Wardell’s blog on ports, opening them, why they can’t be opened right now and how you’ll be dancing with Stardock’s proxy server if your NAT fails.
For the win. Hit the link.

This is genuinely depressing. Stardock’s updated its site to claim that over 120,000 users have tried to play Demigod online since the game launched last weekend, and that only 18,000 have actually paid for it.
Seriously, sort it out. It’s not even that expensive. How do you expect people to keep making these games if you can’t be bothered to shell out fourty fucking dollars to support developers? This is how people go bust, you idiots.
Read the full thing through the link. JUST BUY IT. Thanks, Kotaku.

IGN’s posted a video of Stardock’s Brad Wardell talking through imminent fixes to Demigod’s multiplayer.
Changes on the way include the ability for hosts to drop out people having trouble connecting, “more servers” and code optimisation.
The game was forced out by Gamestop putting it on shelves early at the weekend.
Take a look.

Stardock’s Brad Wardell has promised a multiplayer fix for Demigod, speaking on the game’s forum.
Wardell said that connectivity issues with custom games or skirmish problems is due to server overload, and the issue’s being addressed.
To make it up to players, Wardell said that many of the staffers who worked on Demigod will be online to play with gamers this week. Not only for fun, but to also give out tips and provide general help in playing the game.
Most of the online issues were to be addressed before release, but thanks to the GameStop snafu, the team had to come in during Easter vacation and do a quick release to combat piracy.

Stardock’s released Demigod’s digital version early thanks to Gamestop going live with the game early.
You can buy it here, now, for $39.95 (£26.89).
“Many of us had just finished a good solid 8 weeks of massive crunch and were looking forward to the weekend to recover. Instead, we found ourselves back at work having to turn on and configure the multiplayer matchmaking servers…[because of the early release by GameStop] piracy on this title will, in theory, be maximized,” said Stardock boss Brad Wardell.
Whoops. More on Examiner. Help Brad out and get busy with the credit card.
