2001's Stronghold was a very good, and very European game. Finally you could build up an entire castle from the ground up, man the walls with your units, and manage the feudal economy to support all of it. It was the kind of ... read feature

Reality Pump had perhaps one of the most enviably easy jobs in videogame history -- create a game that was better than Two Worlds. When Naughty Dog needs to make an Uncharted sequel, it has an increasingly tough act to follow... read feature
The PC version of Two Worlds II will receive a three-day delay, according to Southpeak. The postponement was first noticed by Destructoid reader Aaron, who had been informed by Amazon that the game would run late. We checked ... read
On today's Swagtacular, I get to do my very first special edition unboxing! I've never gotten to do one of these before, so this was a lot of fun. Of course, since I can't ever do anything properly, things go a bit ... spicy ... towards the end.
In fact ... I'm sorry. I'm very sorry. In this episode, I ruined videogames for everybody. read feature
I respect an organization which can poke fun at itself, something SouthPeak Games has always been more than capable of. Supporting my claim is this new video for Two Worlds II which sees the return of that lov... read
In a new developer diary video, Creative Director Scott Cromie talks about the changes they made to make Two Worlds II a better game than the first one. From what I've heard, the sidequests have silly humor, the spell craft... read
Do you hear that? It's the Man, and he's coming. SouthPeak Interactive made a filling with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission on November 19th which revealed that the publisher's chairman Terry Phillips and ... read feature
The folks at SouthPeak persist in producing these oddly charming videos to promote Two Worlds II centered around second-string villain Sordahon. In this fifth installment, we're given a visual recap of some of the events which have transpired on Sordahon's path towards videogame legitimacy. It is accompanied by a cheesy rock ballad, complete with mullet wig. Classy. read
Hey! A trailer! For Two Worlds II! Oh wait ... well, anything is better than the first game. But seriously, I've seen what TopWare has done with the new game a few times and it's going to be good.

Monday evening was a special night for me for many reasons. I finally got Ben PerLee to agree to touch my breasts, but more importantly Deep Silver hosted an event here in San Francisco for their newest racing game, Nail'd.
Originally due out for release this month, Two Worlds II has been delayed yet again by publisher Southpeak. The promisingly not-totally-shit sequel to the totally-very-shit Two Worlds has now been shunted into 2011 with a vag... read
I would expect that the process of hiring a celebrity to be in your videogame has the potential to be very frustrating indeed. Take Sordahon from Two Worlds II as an example. Here, the people at Southpeak are doing ever... read
This is Nail'd, DeepSilver's new dirt-bike and ATV racing game. The man dressed as "The Gaming Pope" (a religion I can accept) is Geoff Blair, and he takes time from banishing our sins to tell us all about their upcoming gam... read

I had the pleasure of being shown a pre-alpha build of Stronghold 3 by the Director of Firefly studios, Simon Bradbury, this afternoon. He opened the demo by stating that he didn't feel Stronghold 2 was a bad game, rather that it tried to do too many things and lost focus of what made the first Stronghold game so popular.
With Stronghold 3, however, the game is set to return to its roots. read feature

Two Worlds was a game I was probably never going to like. Neither a fan of fantasy genres nor having the time and attention span for lengthy role-playing games, it just wasn't built for me. Nevertheless, I still kept ey... read
Two Worlds wasn't too hot. I know it. You know it. The people who made the game know it. One person who definitely knows it is villainous henchman Sordahon, who gave up the life of a mysterious brooding thrall to become... read feature

I typically don't get along with "realistic" racing games, but I'll love any good racer that does something a little over-the-top. This is why I am somewhat drawn to Nail'd, a new bike racing game from Southpeak Interactive. It trades in realistic physics for sheer speed, and surprisingly it works out quite well.
Read on for some hands-on impressions of Nail'd. read feature
Two Worlds II is a game with a hard job. It's got to convince people it's worth buying despite its status as a sequel to the worst RPG made this generation. It's shocking to think Two Worlds ever got a sequel, but watching t... read
