[LadyGamers]: Both you and Altheus hoped for a day when StarCraft's swarm of enemies would be in your Doom 3. Now that the mod has been available to all of your fans, do you feel you have accomplished what you had originally planned?

8:41 AM | Cord Kruse | 5 comments

Due to the popularity of The Sims franchise in France the French postal service, La Poste, is honoring the game with an offical postage stamp. The stamps will be released in a limited edition of three million copies, and will be one of ten in the Heroes of Videogames collection. The Sims is so popular in France that the games have reached 8th place in the top ten list of entertainment products, right behind the novel The DaVinci Code.

"From fashion to food, history to heraldry, the French have always been cultural tastemakers," said EA's Chief Creative Officer Bing Gordon. "We thank them not only for commemorating The Sims with an official postage stamp, but also for making it one of the top ten most celebrated entertainment products in France-Merci!'"
The Heroes of Videogames collection will retail for 2.65 euros (approximately $3.09 US) from French post offices and through La Poste's web site. For more information follow the links below.

Team Lazarus, a group of dedicated fan modders, has released a complete remake of Ultima V: Warriors of Destiny using the Dungeon Siege engine for PC. Called Ultima V: Lazarus, the remake includes hundreds of hours of gameplay, nearly 300 unique NPCs, and CD quality remastered Ultima V music. The all volunteer team spent over five years working on the project.

At last, my friends, the time has come. After five and a half long years, Lazarus is complete. The first Ultima remake project to ever actually reach the finish line....weighing in at over 500 megabytes, with nearly 300 unique NPCs, and literally hundreds of hours of play value, Lazarus is HERE!

The game is available for both PC and Mac, though currently only in English--French and German versions will be forthcoming. So make sure you've got your copy of Dungeon Siege patched up to date, download Lazarus, and enjoy!

Then head on over to our FORUMS and let us know what you think!

A Mac installer is in the works and should be available very soon from the Lazarus site. Ultima V: Lazarus requires an up to date copy of Dungeon Siege to run. Check out the links below for more information.
