Dawn of Discovery is the latest game in the classic Anno seriesreleased back in June, the European version is referred to as Anno1404. Why Ubisoft felt a name change was necessary for the westernmarket is beyond me. Anyway, I posted this on the forum a while back,but I thought I would go ahead and post it on the front page for thosethat missed it. I had posted a lot about this game on the forum earlierthis year, I'm a big fan of the Anno series of games and I was reallylooking forward to this one, but when I found out about the draconiancopy protection included with the original release of this game Ipretty much gave up on it. Back at the end of October, Ubisoft releasedan official patch for this game fixing a few bugs and completelyremoving the TAGES copy protection!
In 2003, the game "Pirates of the Caribbean" made by the Russian game studio Akella, was released to the public. Being the hyjacked Sea Dogs 2 in disguise, the game was a rush-job with a lot of potential that went untapped in the original game. However, this was soon to change with the PiratesAhoy! Build Mod series!
"Pirates of the Caribbean: New Horizons", also known as "PiratesAhoy! Community Build 14" has been worked on non-stop ever since the release of the original game.
What we have been able to accomplish blows all our expectations out of the water.

Mika Mobile has released a trailer on Youtube for it's upcoming iPhone game OMG Pirates! From the trailer though, it looks to be a pretty one sided affair, as the entire trailer features a Ninja whacking Pirates all over the place!

I am usually very hesitant about any new TV show, but I can't pass this one up, it's about me favorite subject! Most of these network shows are written more for ratings than to actually tell a story, and most of the time the story they are telling is just a rehash of a an old movie or just a plain ripoff of Treasure Island.

But I will probably give this one a chance if it ever makes it to production, read on for more!
