Review: Stronghold 3

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 ...

Review: Two Worlds II photo
Review: Two Worlds II
by Jim Sterling

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 -- all Reality Pump needed to do was to be better than the worst roleplaying game created this generation. 

Without further ado, it is my privilege and honor to confirm to you that yes ... Two Worlds II is better than Two Worlds

I know ... that doesn't tell you anything.

Swagtacular: Unboxing Two Worlds II: Royal Edition
by Jim Sterling

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.

Sordahon's Journey continues into customer service

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...

US Securities and Exchange Commission targets SouthPeak photo
US Securities and Exchange Commission targets SouthPeak
by Conrad Zimmerman

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 CEO Melanie Mroz have both received Wells Notices (a notice sent when the staff of the SEC encourages enforcement action against a company).

The action comes as a result of an investigation following an amended quarterly report by SouthPeak, after it was determined by management that there were problems with the books. The SEC alleges that that the parties violated accounting laws and failed to maintain internal safeguards within the company to ensure proper accounting. In addition, SEC staff recommends that the commission seek civil damages from Phillips for "aiding and abetting" violations.

Phillips is no stranger to SEC enforcement. Back in 2000, he and his company Capitol Distributing LLC were accused by the commission of aiding and abetting Take-Two Interactive in, "violations of antifraud, reporting and recordkeeping provisions." As part of a settlement, Phillips was slapped with a cease and desist order and made to pay a civil penalty of $50,000. 

Neither is this the beginning of SouthPeak's legal wrangling with the federal government. At present, the SEC is pursuing five different lawsuits (all in varying stages of litigation) against SouthPeak subsidiaries including Gamecock.

A rock ballad for Two Worlds II's Sordahon

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.

Nail'd is probably the best racer you'll play this year

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...
