Carnations and lilies were the final indignity. The bouquet, which arrived at her door on a sunny Saturday in September, were from her fiance, a video game programmer who was working his eighth consecutive 72-hour week. Far from being flattered, the woman poured out her anger and frustration in a 2,000-word essay that she posted on the Internet under the pseudonym "ea_spouse." "The love of my life comes home late at night complaining of a headache that will not go away and a chronically upset stomach," she wrote.

Perhaps one Ring is enough to rule them all, but apparently it takes two video games to enthrall Lord of the Rings fans. Electronics Arts' The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers ($49, ages 13 and up) for the Sony PlayStation 2 encompasses the first two books of J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy epic. Actually, the game encompasses the first two movies in the trilogy, which in turn generally cover the first two books. It's complicated, but I'll explain in a minute. The EA game opens superbly, replaying the opening footage of the Fellowship of the Ring movie and then segueing seamlessly into the battle sequence at the foot of Mount Doom.

On Thursday, the entire staffs of 38 Studios and Big Huge Games were given pink slips. The company, which released “Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning” (which I reviewed in February ), was in partnership with the state of Rhode Island to bring jobs into the state and give former MLB pitcher Curt Schilling's 38 Studios fuel to evolve into a big-time game developer. The company was in the midst of developing a project called “Copernicus,” an MMORPG based in the same universe as “Amalur.” Big Huge Games, based in Timonium, became a subsidiary of 38 Studios almost three years ago to the day. The Sun's Gus Sentementes was over at Big Huge ' s offices before being booted out today , but it seems the entire teams at both companies have indeed been let go. WPRI has an exce llent timeline of how the tax credit and loan between the state of Rhode Island and 38 Studios developed.
