Things And Stuff: Thursday News Roundup

TOCA 2 multiplayer demo, new Dark Age of Camelot expansion, and Tomonobu Itagaki helps tackle girl trouble.

Following on from last month's three-track single-player demo, Codemasters has been in touch today to announce the release of the PC multiplayer demo, which features three different tracks and cars and support for up-to-12 players over the Internet or via network connection. The 115MB demo is available from the Downloads section of the official TOCA Race Driver 2 website. TOCA 2 is of course due out on PC and Xbox next Friday, April 23rd, and will feature online support on both platforms. Rather encouragingly, it's picked up some very healthy review scores to date.

Dark Age Of Camelot developer Mythic Entertainment this week announced a further expansion to its Arthurian MMORPG. DAOC: Catacombs will be released in December 2004, and will add fresh content and new player classes amongst other things. Apparently players will be able to explore a new underground city for each Realm based on the back-story of one of the Realm's underground player races, which sounds absolutely spiffing.

Finally today we've found out what Tomonobu Itagaki gets up to when he's not making Dead Or Alive games: he's an agony aunt! At least, that's the impression we get from his new column in American magazine Xbox Nation, mirrored on the Internet here, in which the veteran games designer deals with issues relating to girlfriends, married women, interview technique, and more important issues like whether Kasumi could kick some scary looking bald guy's arse. He also expresses an interest in making an adaptation of The Godfather movie, his grand idea being "something along the lines of GTA".
