SEGA and Obsidian Entertainment (led by Feargus Urquhart) has just announced an RPG based on the Alien License. No more info is available at this time, but it is rumoured that a second Alien game will be announced by SEGA tomorrow.
Also, IGN has taken another peek at Hellgate: London, and it looks pretty grim. "The attributes "..." are Accuracy, Concentration, Stamina and Willpower." Looks like we're in for a Diablo dumb-down, if that's even possible.
On a completely different note, Jesus took some time out of his busy schedule to tell me about his upcoming birthday, which is on the 24th of december. My own birthday is on the 28th, so I know all about having to arrange birthday celebrations in the middle of the holiday season. Tough luck Jesus, but that's the way it goes sometimes.
