EA announces Dungeon Keeper Online

EA announces Dungeon Keeper Online

In case you're interested in massively-multiplayer online games, then you'll definitely want to know that EA Games announced Dungeon Keeper Online today. The game will act as a continuation of the strategy game of the same name, though this time in the MMO format.

The game will be developed by NetDragon Websoft, a Chinese studio. This studio will gain access to all of the Dungeon Keeper content to develop the new game. Then, EA will be compensated once (or if) the title makes money.

However, that's pretty much all we know at this point. It will definitely be a 3D MMORPG, and China, Taiwan, Macau and Hong Kong will be the only places this game will be available. This is rather unfortunate for the Western fans of the Dungeon Keeper franchise. No release date is yet known.

EA’s Skate It! is now available

EA’s Skate It! is now available

If you're big into skating games, then you'll be pleased to know that EA Games has just announced their Skate It! game for the Wii and Nintendo DS is now available to buy at a store near you.

The game lets you perform all sorts of skateboard moves just by flicking around the Wii Remote or by using the stylus on the DS. One particularly cool thing about the Wii version, however, is that you can use the Wii Balance Board to control the skateboard within the game. That definitely brings an element of realism to it.

The object of the game is to become Thrasher Magazine's Skater of the Year. Sounds funny, but might also actually be kind of fun. At the very least, this skate-focused game further brings in a sporty feel to Nintendo consoles.
