Episode Recap

Headlines Pandemic and Bioware merge Where other game companies sell to bigger game companies, these two game makers have joined forces to keep the independent world alive. This mariage brings together Pandemic's action titles with Bioware's RPG games. Granted a merger is usually cause for cross-over, there has yet to be an announcement of such since the two companies will retain independence and continue in their respected genres. What does this mean for gamers? Not much, only that these companies will continue to produce the same quality of games that they are know for and that they will now share technology to make their games even better. They are doing like Pixar had done for the movie industry. Pandemic is known for games like Star Wars: Battlfront, Attack All Humans! and Full spectrum Warrior. Bioware is known for Jade Empire and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Laura visits IGN Live
