The day finally arrived, the stars aligned, and old Lucasarts classics got pushed into gog.com catalog. This alone isn't really newsworthy, as most of this stuff was already available in some form or another in Steam and other digital download platforms. But now they have Tie Fighter, in all it's '94 edition glory, with original iMuse dynamic sounds. The circle is now complete. GoG.com is my master now.

Gavlan wheel, Gavlan deal!

Curse you From Software. I've managed to evade all information of upcoming DLC packs for Dark Souls II this far, and yet the season pass is already for sale in Steam. Descriptions promise new areas, loots and bosses to die on countless times. Hopefully there will be enough content to justify the relatively high price of the pass (25 euros), which is pretty much half of the price of the original title.

Okay, this whole spring sale things is getting more and more crazy each year. http://www.gog.com has come up with a brand new twist for theirs, as number of sold copies for each game are limited. I just saw the internetz rip up 500 copies of Children of Nile in mere minutes. Too bad Steam keys are not involved in this madness. My wallet is thankful. My little inner Steam collector maniac, not so much.

Our humble friends over at humblebundle.com are running a spring sale during 6.5-21.5. I thought I'd promote this a bit since HumbleBundle is awesome, and giving away to charities is even more awesome. Not to mention growing your collection of Steam games you will never play anyway. Now click the shit out of this direct link before Stick of Truth runs out of flash sale!

Fallout, reining Speedrunners champion!

Mon, 13/01/2014 - 10:16 by darker

Final results are in! And the new reining AoC speedrunners champion has been decided! Ladies and gentlemen, I give you ... Fallout!

Final round started, and apparently despite the huge score gap in earlier rounds, the game was all but decided. Poksu opened with 3-2 win from the first map. And then proceeded to crawl through the next round, giving Fallout 3 round points. Situation was looking grim for the champ at 3 - 5 situation. Poksu would need a map win to even reach the tie breakers. To his dismay, Fallout's game stayed solid through the final map, taking the round 2 - 3 along with the championship title.

Second official Anvil of Crom Speed Runners tournament will be held right after we have finished stuffing ourselves with ham and other christmas treats. While only a short while has passed since that diabolical fiend Poksauttaja took the win in the last bout, it's high time he defends his title.

The grand champion will receive an unique "Speed Runners 2014 Champion" -title on AoC forums, along with eternal glory. Feel free to check the official event thread on our forums @ http://www.anvilofcrom.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=4207

AoC Speedrunners 2013 tournament conclusion

As mentioned before, the final round had to be postponed. We finally managed to get the last round going on monday evening. The epic duel for the ultimate title of AoC Speedrunners champion could finally commence! Draw of maps was gracefully handled by Mr. Bhorak and his trusty online dices. Gods of RNG pondered for a short while, and Library, warehouse and SS Royale were chosen for the final round maps.

From the first minute, it was quite clear that only Poksauttaja had brought his A-game with him that night. Taking away 3 points from each of the first 2 maps, the fight was quickly concluded, as Darker managed to scrape up only 2 points against Poksu's 6, making the last round obsolete.

Happy Bors day everyone!

Like every year, 29th of october crept on us like an old fridge, prone in the tall grass, stalking you through the sights of a .50 cal sniper rifle. The Bors day is upon us once again!

On Bors day, it is customary to spend some quality time with your family, loved ones, and online gaming buddies. To play and laugh, and remember all the magnificent past shenanigans Bors has brought us. Because he's the hero the Alasin online gaming community deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll toast and roast him. Because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A silent fridge.

Image galleries bug resolved

Mon, 18/11/2013 - 15:38 by darker

There was a slight bug in the handling of generated pictures in our image galleries related to page caching. The tech team has been working tirelessly to solve the issue, and gallery should be working normally once again. Gallery pages might load a bit slower than normally until the image generation finishes tackling all the pictures in all galleries.

We have also made some pretty fundamental changes to actual galleries, linking each image to it's respective content node, which in turn once again enables direct commenting on pictures, hit statistics and other cool features.
