Ensemble Studios is getting shut down :(

Posted by Sankar on September 22, 2008

Ensemble Studios, the studios behind the successful Age of Empires series and games like Age of Mythology is apparently closing down. I just read about this earlier today and it was definitely a shocker. The age of empires series is one of the most popular RTS games and a very profitable one too. Currently, they are working on a RTS version of Halo called Halo Wars. It looks like Microsoft Game Studios (which owns Ensemble Studios) is shutting it down after the completion of Halo Wars 😦

Check out the post here.

I just hope that they are just being absorbed into MSG and not really being shut down…

Google Chrome – open source browser from Google

Posted by Sankar on September 1, 2008

A few years back I had blogged about some rumors in the industry about Google coming up with a browser. Well, it turned out to be a rumor then. But now, it looks like Google is coming up with a browser of its own. In fact, the browser is getting released as early as tomorrow. I hope this is not a rumor/hoax.

A fresh take on the browser

They also have a comic that highlights the features of the browser. Looking forward to trying it out. Firefox and IE especially have to be on their toes now.
