Age of Conan, an MMO, was one of the games available for a preview at the Games for Windows launch event in San Francisco on the 23rd. Jorgen Tharaldsen, Product Director at Funcom, enjoyed telling me of the new gameplay features in Age of Conan so much that I finally stopped him mid-sentence to say, "Hey, let's record this and make a proper interview out of it!" He graciously consented, and you can read the result here!

Microsoft is soon rolling out the PC equivalent to the Xbox Live - Games for Windows Live. Gamers on either PCs or Xbox's can connect and play together - or at least will be able to soon when cross-platform games become more common. I had the opportunity to interview Chee Chew, General Manager of Xbox Live for Windows, at the Games for Windows launch event in San Francisco on January 23rd. Chew discusses Live, Vista, and his hopes for the future of the gaming community. Read the entire interview here!
