+++I. Feature Article: It Ain't Easy Makin' Games: When Console Games Turn Evil.Edit

This time in It Ain't Easy Makin' Games, we'll return briefly to the world of consoles for not one but two system-hacking equivalents of the Windows-killing Anarchy Online 11.2 patch, one for the Nintendo DS and one for Playstation. Alas, nobody's perfect, but is it really that hard to make a game that doesn't wipe your entire PS memory card... See what happens when console games turn on you at (

+++III. Advice from the Warhorse's Mouth.Edit

+++IV. Hot Item: Lightning Rod.Edit

Mall Price: 20

This Item is absolutely necessary if you want to have a prayer at defeating the virtually invincible Lightning Guards outside your City; otherwise, they'll turn even the strongest armies into mincemeat in a matter of minutes. At 20 points, this Item certainly isn't the cheapest good on the market, but it's a pretty good deal for the high-level Purple Equipment that the Lightning Guards are guaranteed to drop.

+++V. Weekly Trivia.Edit

This week's question: What proportion of IW players are female? A. 10% B. 25% C. 35% D. 60% E. 70%

Nobody was able to provide a correct answer to last week's question, "What is the longest-established Guild in Imperial Warfare?"--not even members of the Guild. We'll lay the question to rest for now; it might pop up again in the future.
