Anno 2205 – smoking new future game trailerage.

Here’s the next iteration of the Anno strategy game franchise, set even more in the future and entitled not unreasonably, Anno 2205. The original scifi strategy game was quite good, if a little fiddly (and almost impossible to beat at even the middle stages of the game – where’s my cheats?).

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty by Raymond Benson

The blurb on the front cover announces that ‘Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty’ is ‘The official novel of the thrilling Konami video game created by Hideo Kojima!’ So no change there then, as that’s what it said on the first book, ‘Metal Gear Solid’.
