After the break. The whole thing’s a game being played with a developer talking over the top, and it actually does look awesome.
Fighting and gods, RTS and action, cats and dogs living in harmony. For the win.
Gas Powered Games is developing. It’s out in April.

StarDock and Gas Powered Games announced today that Beta 3 of Demigod will be released on February 19.
Beta 3 is being launched so the devs can “nail down balance and begin trying out the Pantheon – the persistent multiplayer universe,” and fix any balance issues before moving onto the final phase: getting the multiplayer matchmaking system to work.
If you want in on it, sign up now. The beta window will close in a week.
The game is expected to land on PC April 14.

Square’s confirmed it’s to publish a sequel to Gas Powered Games RTS Supreme Commander.
No platforms or dates for the game have been laid out as yet, with Square saying only that “development has begun” on the project.
The announcement is a big deal for Square: it equates to something along th lines of, “This is us making a game specifically engineered for western audiences.”
“We see great opportunities in European and North American markets, both of which are expected to be maintaining sustainable growth over these coming years,” said Square super-boss Yoichi Wada.
“Therefore, it is crucial we create alliances with proven developers such as Gas Powered Games in order to serve these significant markets better by providing products and services in tune with customer tastes.”

Well, bugger us and call us Henry. Sega’s released a Space Siege demo, following a bizarre notification from Nvidia that it could happen this week.
Get it from GamersHell. It’s just under 1Gb in total, and there doesn’t appear to be any indication of what it actually contains. You’ll just have to play it to find out.

According to this nVidia E3 site, a Space Siege “demo” is to be released in four days time.
This could mean anything, so don’t wet the bed just yet. We’ll check with Sega tomorrow.

IGN has given the Xbox 360 version of Supreme Commander 4.5/10 in one of the game’s first reviews.
Complaints include slowdown, crashing, poor graphics compared to the PC version and impaired AI. The article writer questioned how the game got its certification from Microsoft in such a state.
Along with a limit of four-player multiplayer instead of eight, new interface issues and AI that apparently couldn’t plot its way out of a paper bag, Erik Brudvig closed the review with this line: “The game that PC owners adored in 2007 has received a poor port to Xbox 360 that is more of a disappointment than anything else.”

“We have not made any official announcements, or have any official plans, but we are kicking ideas around, and that’s no secret,” he said.
“It would be a long time before another DS game was finished and saw the light of day.”
Taylor added: “When asked if we were considering taking lessons learned from Space Siege back into the Dungeon Siege series, the answer was yes.
“The example I gave was the multi-character parties… saying I was done with the big parties, because it really took the focus away from the main hero. In fact, in Dungeon Siege, it was hard to really have a ‘main’ hero, so-to-speak.”
So there we are.

Eurogamer.de’s dropped a nice exclusive this morning, carrying a quote from Chris Taylor in which he both confirms Dungeon Siege 3 and says the game will be based on a single character instead of a party.
“There will be some things that are very much like the original Dungeon Siege [games] but only some things will be simplified,” Taylor told the site. “I am done with multi-character parties. I really think that its all going to be about a single hero. Its just too much to manage. I want a single hero to get all the focus.”
The move is likely to be in line with the development of upcoming Gas Powered Games spin-off Space Siege, which centres on a single character instead of a group.
More through the link. Assuming you can read German, obviously. There are no details in there about date, etc.

THQ’s put out an instructional movie for the Xbox 360 version of Supreme Commander, showing a completely new interface for the RTS.
The control method seems to be built entirely from “control wheels” which are used to assign units to squads, build stuff, issue commands, and so on. You bring up unit-specific wheels by selecting the unit and hitting right on the d-pad, then select options from the wheel with the right stick.
Looks very cool, to be honest, and made our eyebrows move up at least one notch. Nice to see the barrier between PC and console RTS being slowly but surely eroded.
After the link. The 360 version of GPG strategy monster’s out in September.

Sega has released a trailer for Gas Power Games-developer action-RPG, Space Siege.
Scheduled for release this autumn for PC, the game takes place in the confines of the Armstrong, a colonization ship carrying some of the last remnants of human civilization after a devastating attack on earth from an unknown alien race.
Players will take the role of Seth Walker, a cybernetics engineer thrust into a struggle to save humanity from extermination. Sounds hot.
Head over to Gamershell to download the trailer.

Stardock will publish Gas Powered Games’ Demigod, according to a press release you can find after the link, which will now hit in February 2009 as opposed to “late 2008″.
Aside from the slip, great news arrives in the fact that the game will ship with no DRM at all. From the announcement:
To fully support a public beta that will launch this summer, the launch date for Demigod has been moved to February 2009. This will give the development team sufficient time to incorporate feedback from the beta players while polishing the game. Like Stardock’s other games, Demigod will be released without any on-disc copy protection and has been budgeted to receive many months of free post-release feature updates.
Read the rest after the break.
