Baldur’s Gate III: The Black Hound tipped

A countdown meter reading less than 24 hours now sits on the original Baldur's Gate website, the launchpad for the epic 2 and soon to be 3-part digital Role Playing Game series set in the world of Dungeons & Dragons. This entry in the series was originally slated to be developed and released in 2002, but was cancelled in 2003 when the 3D Engine developed specifically for the game was used for Black Isle Studios Van Buren, also known as Fallout 3. Fast forward to 2012 and the Forgotten Realms-set RPG is being whispered as having new life in the form of an actual release of The Black Hound, better known as Baldur's Gate III.

Was MegaUpload's sudden fall at the hands of the US government in part pushed by Universal Media Group and fears the file sharing site was about to launch a DIY record label of its own? That's the latest speculation in the ongoing digital download saga, with suggestions that MegaUpload was readying an upgrade to MegaBox, turning it into a hybrid cloud-locker, distribution platform and pseudo-label that would actually pay artists for offering their tracks for free.

Doomsday Clock clicks minute closer to global destruction
