What I'm buying this month

Hey again, just updating you with what I'm planning to get this month with my adsense cheque.

Price: € 219


AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4 GHz Black Edition

Price: € 134,90

Nothing too crazy. I might do this every month or so. I didn't pick a 6 core cpu because not many games actually use 6 cores at the moment.

At the moment I have an ATI Radeon HD 5670, an AMD Phenom x4 925. Any other suggestions, maybe?
I only have 350 euros to spend.

[Boardgame] Monopoly: World of Warcraft & Risk: Starcraft

Blizzard has signed a contract with USAopoly that means that World of Warcraft will be released in Monopoly version and a Starcraft version of Risk. The games will introduce several new game elements. They will be introduced at a games fair today, Sunday, February 12, in New York.

Monopoly: World of Warcraft works with a Horde and Alliance-dice. Your real estate markets are the Twilight Highlands and The Swamp of Sorrows. It will be available in May in North America.

In RISK: Starcraft you can of course choose to play as Terran, Protoss or Zerg. There are six unique heroes for your army to enter. The winner is the player with the best military strategy. The game will include nearly 300 components, including of course a lot of units in Starcraft 2. The game will be released somewhere in the summer.

It's cool that videogames are getting more implemented in the board game world, but yet another version of these two old-fashioned games, were we really waiting for those?

Paradox Interactive announces three new games

Mystery works very well in creating curiosity.
Paradox Interactive realizes that very well. They let us know that next month three new games will be proposed and gave with each one some info.

The first project, JFK, is being developed by Arrowhead Game Studios, the makers of Magicka. It is described as "a multiplayer game with a very fast tempo, where you have to murder your friends as cool as possible.

Revenge, developed by Critical Studio, is an action game and a "murder hole for both heroes and children."

Finally, there is Silverado, where the team of Zeal Game Studio is working on.
This game is said to be not only a mix of a shooter and an RTS but also contains elements of both science fiction and war board games.

All these games will be previewed at the Game Developers Conference in San Fransisco.
It is clear that until then Paradox will say nothing much about these games.

The studio has also let us know that the games War of the Roses and A Game of Dwarves will also be presented.

This is why I've bought Skyrim on PC - Creation Kit preview

Bethesda uploaded this video today and it shows us the Creation Kit and the Skyrim Workshop.

User generated content can be much better than what you already get, so it's really cool of Bethesda to provide us with a kit.

This is exactly why I bought Skyrim on PC.
