There is at least one benefit of being ill, and that is that you get the chance to recap on what is going on in the gaming world.
Two things have caught my attention, the most obvious is BlizzCon 2009. A guy called Cityhunter0505 on YouTube has a nice collection of clips from the event.
Another small collection of clips that I really enjoy are from the developers walkthrough of the coming (and highly interesting) MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic.
I also noted that Fallen Earth has entered open beta for everyone registered at FilePlanet. Head over and get your copy, the launch will be in 20 days so there should be some time to try it out. I still have an hour to download it, so I can not give you any comments on it just yet.
