Familiar faces amongst the Halo Wars developers play night


The Halo Wars developers play night has been buzzing with excitement as people from Robot Entertainment, Bonfire Studios and other Ex Ensemble people came to play with fans. One of those Ex Ensemble’s was ex community manager “Paragon”. The much missed moderator came out to play with fans as he greeted those on the message boards with:

*the cave door opens*

*a bearded figure of a man walks out blinded by the light*

*He is handed a 360 controller and grunts*

“paragon shall play”

Even though I am vastly out of practice, I will try and pop on for a few matches.  My gamer tag is ES Paragon (space between S and P no quotes)

Stick around Paragon!

Hopefully there will be more developer play nights in the future!


Big Huge Games is not closing, picked up by 38 studios


A few months ago I posted that Big Huge Games who co-developed the Age of Empires 3 Asian Dynasties with Ensemble Studios was at risk of being shut down by its parent THQ. Good news now however is that the studio will live on under a new parent company 38 Studios. BHG will not be moving its offices although its not confirmed if there will be employee changes.

I wish them the best of luck under thier new parent. You can find more details here:
