9:04 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

LittleWing Pinball is offering another short chapter of background story for their upcoming pinball game Fairy Tower. The 9th pinball game released by LittleWing, Fairy Tower's story involves a spaceship landing on earth during the Jurassic period and threatening the fairy tale creatures populating the land.

From LittleWing's Site:

Back then, Earth was a planet of fairies and other magical creatures. After a long history of wars and disasters, the planet's tribes decided to live peacefully, in harmony with each other and with nature. In this way, they were far more advanced than the humans of today.
Fairy Tower is scheduled for release in the Summer of 2006. Those who answer a short questionaire on their preferred pinball game features have the chance to win a free copy of Fairy Tower.

IMG Reviews Fairies
10:26 AM | Tuncer Deniz | 6 comments

IMG has posted a review of Fairies, an unabashed clone (or, more accurately, near clone) of Pop Cap Games' Chuzzle. From basic gameplay mechanics to tutorial screens, Fairies and Chuzzle have a remarkable number of similarities. However, different play modes, top-notch presentation, and the plain fact that Chuzzle is not available for Mac (beyond the web version) makes Fairies a very appealing addition to any puzzle gamer's Application folder.

World Of Warcraft Q&A
9:04 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

WoW Warcry has released a transcript of an IRC chat with several designers and community managers for Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft. The discussion covers a variety of topics including raid schedules, quest variety, and future additions to the game.

- Teleios: I find that 5 man instances can be the most enjoyable of all, and can be very challenging. Unfortunatly none of the current instances offer any rewards worthwhile to characters at level 60 who have progressed to molten core and onyxia. Are there any plans to add anything of that type in the future.
- Kalgan: Yes. We plan to introduce some cool new quests that introduce a new armor set that is a step above the current dungeon armor set. These quests will involve both solo and 5 person instances, with a few new twists.
