Free content patch: invasive advertising in video games
Free content patch: invasive advertising in video games

Last week the gaming news sites were discussing the revelation that Sony had inserted advertising post-launch in its futuristic-themed racing game WipEout HD.

I got so much space now, I got a whole house

Aion: The Tower of Eternity

Earlier in the week through the generosity of an acquaintance, I got my hands on a beta key for the upcoming English launch of the MMORPG Aion: The Tower of Eternity.
