It was three years ago when we heard that one of the start ups forming out of Ensemble Studios would be Windstorm Studios. Unlike the other endeavors undertaken by ex Ensemble staff, Windstorm had one unique element about it, the studio was to be founded and run by a single person – Dusty Monk. In order to do this Dusty had to sacrifice a day job and work full time on a project that he was greatly passionate about to pursue publishing his very own video game. After all, working on your own video game as a one man band is no easy task and can only be accomplished with passion and drive. Luckily there was no shortage of passion where Dusty was concerned, he single-handedly went about commissioning freelancers to help him build his dream game. Read more
Dusty has been hard at work over at Windstorm Studios where he has launched a brand new website design for the futuristic video game studio. The new website highlights and provides alot more detail about Atomic City Adventures including background information and character bios. If you have played the game and are interested in reading a bit more about the world of Atomic City then checking out this new website should be your first port of call.
Dusty is looking for feedback about the new site design so feel free to head over to the Atomic City Adventures facebook page and be sure to let him know your thoughts. I think its quite a snazzy design! Read more
After having battled our way through the futuristic cities and battled numerous enemies – from feisty damsels to menacing synthetic hornets, Pam has been through alot during the weeks investigating the case. Now she and the VSF are ready to launch their attack on the robotic AI controlled flying bikes. While this level is mostly about the final showdown between Pam and Kumiko it is important to explore the level as well for those looking to get the highest scores. As Kenny points out If you want extra points make sure that you kill the main villain last.
Completing this level will wrap up your time in Atomic City. Never fear though, Dusty has previously hinted at an additional two levels which we might see arriving in the form of DLC in the future. So stay tuned and we’ll see you again in Atomic City!
RadioKenny’s Atomic City Adventures guide has been updated with Mission #6. In this mission Agent Rodgers has to brave the Industrial Complex of Kyoto Industries in order to plant the override protocol in Kyoto’s systems so that the VSF can re-take control of the dangerous weapons. I quite enjoyed this mission which involves quite alot of fighting both air and ground units. As Kenny points out, it’s not a great idea just to go in with all guns blazing, I recommend taking each corner separately and disperse with the flying enemies first. Often you can start to fire on the enemy from a distance allowing you to damage a unit quite significantly before it sees you and starts to attack.
The AI antenna’s on this level are pretty easy to find. Kenny’s map will point you in the right direction for the contraband and weapons collectors! Take a look at the latest guide below and enjoy your gold score!
Ian Vogel the design lead at Microsoft of Age of Empires Online has announced an overview of the upcoming patch to Age of Empires Online. This patch has been in great demand of the community and the pressure has been on to develop this patch quickly. There has been some dis-content with the Age Online community about how long this patch has taken to develop and how it has potentially impacted on player numbers. Age of Empires Online was pitched as an “evergreen” game with the possibility of regular updates, its been a shame that updates thus far havent been pushed out in speedy time. Hopefully in order to ensure community continuity patches will be smaller and faster to release rather than this first patch which appears to be pretty large. There is indeed alot coming in this patch, from gear changes to PvP and Crete. Also mentioned in Ian’s latest post is that the Persians will soon be on their way as a playable civilisation, they are currently on schedule for October, so look out for them soon!
After falling foul in the last mission Agent Pam Rodgers has alot on her mind on this mission. Pam isn’t one to let things slide, so she finds it difficult and distracting to return to policing the streets for vehicular crime.

Check out part 5 of his Atomic City guide right here!
