The Week in Demos and Patches: February 3rd – 9th
Saturdays are usually slow around here, and everywhere else for that matter. Saturday afternoons especially. Whether you are recovering after a late Friday night full of binge drinking which you ended by mooning passing cars on the freeway while your friend – sans drivers license – was driving or are just really bored and tired of looking at Lolcats hour after hour, then stop reading this run-on sentence of mine and download a patch for your game or a demo or two.
This week, demos were scarce again. I don’t know if the gaming companies are getting stingy or just really don’t have anything to give us – whatever the case is, it would be nice to see some more trickling in. Patches were in abundance again though, and I have listed the most popular ones below.
Demos that hit this week include:
- Dangerous High School Girls: Mac and PC gamers will travel to 1920s Brigiton, USA were this fantastical little town is the home of wily young girls, steadfast boys, and small-minded adults. Here you will gather your gang in the days of Mae West, Clara Bow, and Marlene Dietrich.
- Penumbra Black Plague:Paradox Interactive has released a demo which includes the four first levels of the game.
- Theatre of War: This demo is built with all of the relevant “Uber” (v126.96.36.199) patch features in play including the new advanced Line of Sight system, radically improved performance across the board as well as enhanced AI behavior.
