April 17 was The Engineering Guilds 5th Birthday and it was a firey birth full of love, hate, trolls, rip off merchants and hackers, all coming from the TES community. Since its clear they are still at it, I am going to tell you what actually happened that led to the birth of TEG. After all TEG has stood alone for 5 years. It has been outside most of the primary communities it supported. TEG did what it did and it did it my way.....

I have just recieved word from Sita that TEG Solstheim has been translated in to French and can be downloaded from the La Confrerie des Traducteurs website.
I have also been told he is now translating Return to Helgen V4 in to French.
Thanks for the update Sita, hope your users enjoy it :)

A couple of other games came to my attention in recent months and I have been following them closely. Due to the risks of early access I try and keep you all warned of bad games to back and good games to back. Today I have 2 new additions to my "good games list" after seeing several updates for both these games. On average most of the best early access games give you monthly updates, some also give you weekly news to back it up.

I was thinking about my classic games, games I played to death and would still play today (excluding DOS games because I am an Amiga user and DOS versions where just plain shit) and I came up with 2 lists, games I love to play even today and games that i played to death and got bored of.
Classic games.... For me the following would be on my list. Below this is a list of games I played to death but got bored of and stopped playing.

Metacritics shows the professional reviews raving about the Elder Scrolls Online in their reviews aimed at gamers and giving it am 89 score. The user reviews give the same game a 6.9 which says the pros got it wrong again. I find it interesting how they always get it wrong for games from large publishers but seem to have no problem getting it right for small indie companies.

There is no doubt that Early Access and Kickstarter are a double edge sword, you have as much chance of getting a good game as you have of being ripped off.
There are some rules the good developers follow - and I have seen them talking about - that can be expanded upon for gamers to help us decide if an early access game is worth our cash or not.

It looks like the merger with TAD did not work out for Silgrad Tower and they are back on their own website again. They ask that those who are interested in helping out with their conversations read this post.
Speaking for my self, I have a few failed mergers my self so I'll wish both sites all the best and hope things work out for them.

I want to ask your opinion on Early Access and Kickstarter projects and other similar methods of raising money to make games. But before you reply understand that this has broken the strangle hold the large publishers had on the game industry and once again allows us to look forward to a vast array of different games that simply have not been made in over 20 years in some cases because of those same large puiblishers. So over all it is a good thing, but that is not what I want to know.
