Black and White. Wha' happened?

I'm not a serious gamer, so please forgive my boundless ignorance if needs be. I remember that "Black and White" was hyped as the next big thing. Was it? Or did Serious Sam, or another game push it into the shadows? Thanks!

They released it alright. Initially it seemed to go down reasonably well, until people discovered how BUGGY the thing was. I think that probably put a lot of people off. I know it did the people in this household!

It doesn't really seem to have made it as the "Next Big Thing".

More like ripples from where a large dancing bear threw a rock into a pond...

Black & White is still a great game, with an expansion pack for it on the way. The only bug in the game which really annoyed me was in the last mission - My creature kept growing smaller and weaker even when I destroyed the enemy villages.

heh... it's from Nival Interactive's Etherlords. Chaos is one of the final beta testers (it's currently in beta phase 3), and the game looks to be released by December IIRC. It's a bit of a cross betwen Heroes of Might & Magic and Magic : The Gathering.

I'm having a fun time with the 3rd beta too

Please, Microsoft can release an OS w/ 2 million bugs and Intel can release CPU w/ math errors, but let a game designer not have everything hashed out and ya'll drop the hammer. B&W was a VERY GOOD GAME. It was highly original in concept and gameplay and very refreshing after the 2 million FPS and RTS clones that have been touted as revolutionary. This game was very fun. The only "issue" I had w/ it was that I felt kind of weird "stroking my monkey" If you've played the game, you'll understand.
