Well kids we got some good news, and we got some bad news.

1st: the good news. Mark "Stingray" Santora is a playtester for 4plays
Battlesphere game and he just posted a new report on the game. you can check
it out at this url:
http://home.earthlink.net/~santora/playtstb.html

2nd: (and here is the bad news) Iron Soldier 2 has been DELAYED. YUCK!!!!
here is the official statement from Telegames.

"Iron Soldier 2 Delayed

The projected release date of Iron Soldier 2 (CD) for Jaguar has been
delayed due
to a CD replication problem. Although Atari's "officially" licensed
replicator has
had the gold masters of IS2 since February 20th , they have been unable to
create
problem free glass masters that are required for mass production. Their problems
are partly related to the sophisticated security encription on the Jag CDs.
Engineers
have been working furiously since the masters were delivered to fully
resolve the
problems. We will update our web site as more info becomes available. Please do
not send individual e-mail inquiries asking about the status."

Well aint that a pisser, BUT we had lots of games delayed by Atari, so we
should be use to this. At least Telegames posted a reason why its delayed
wich i think is very nice of them to do. 

Well thats all i have for now.
