The Week in Demos and Patches: January 20-26
Unless you have been living under a rock or in a run-down shack in Montana living like a mountain man, you missed out on the popular World of Warcraft and Hellgate: London patches this week. Other than those two, there is not much to report in the way of demos, patches, and gaming clients this week folks. Although this makes my job much easier considering the fact that I will have fewer things to list, I am disappointed in the lack of demos that we received. Oh well, I guess there is always next week.
- Conflict: Denied Ops puts you in command of two hardened CIA paramilitary operatives in intense missions set across South America, Africa and Siberia. Experience ruthless real-world action.
