NVIDIA announced yesterday that they have signed an agreement to purchase AGEIA. Not many of you probably have a PhysX card (I see Jeff raising his hand and that is about it), but that should change with NVIDIA, arguably the most well known video card manufacturer controlling this superb technology. I consider this a coup for NVIDIA who just gave themselves an advantage over ATi in the video card wars.

The excitement surrounding Age of Conan continues to build and now, thanks to the good folks at Funcom you can create your very own version of Legolas. Personally, I'd go for the name "LeggoMyEggolas".  

If you haven't already perused the latest exclusive Conan information then do yourself a favour and read, Age of Conan: Class Interview #6 - The Ranger.

In much sadder news, Gametap has decided to turn off Myst Online: Uru Live.

"I have some news that some of you have probably not been looking forward to. GameTap has decided to discontinue the operation of Myst Online: Uru Live. The decision was a very difficult one and was made for business reasons rather than due to any issues regarding the design and vision of the amazing world that Cyan Worlds and Rand Miller have brought to us. Despite the great Myst Online experience coming to a close, Cyan is still a very valued partner of GameTap, we are on excellent terms, and we look forward to continuing our relationship in the future."

No details were given, so we don't know how many people were playing the game. The closure of Uru brings a number of questions to mind.
