It's been well documented that Demigod has been having some server issues.  And while the game should be about up to snuff at this point, perhaps you are just fed up with things.  That's where GameRanger comes in.  Never heard of it?  According to the GameRanger team it's the longest running multiplayer service, having launched on the Mac back in 1999.

Even a Demigod Couldn't Save the LaunchNick Puleo

Demigod launched last month for the PC, and since that time the gaming experience hasn't been very pleasant for players.  The game was plagued with a broken street date which caused a cataclysm of problems including busted servers, and overload of pirates (the illegal kind, not the yarr kind), and a host of other issues.

Perhaps it's a bit ironic, perhaps a bit fitting, but on the day the Pirate Bay Trial Guitly Verdict was handed down Gas Powered Games has addressed some of the issues plaguing Demigod.  If you've picked up the game recently and tried to play online, you may have noticed that...well it's not working.  At least not very well.  The reason behind this?  Pirates - and I don't mean the Somalian kind.

Gas Powered Games has always been a supporter of co-op with games like Dungeon Siege and Space Siege. Demigod is a new game coming out that is going to offer a slightly different take on co-op, something more akin to Unreal Tournament rather than a strong story based game.

See that big Demigod with the giant hammer?  He's the Rook, and he's going to lay the smack down on those little dudes.  If his hammer doesn't smash them, the hundreds of arrows coming out of his face surely will finish the job.

We still don't know too much about Demigod, but we did have some hands on time with it back during PAX.  We came away impressed with the Diablo-ish RPG action combined with an RTS style game.

One of the surprise games of the show for me was a little PC title from Stardock and Gas Powered Games called Demigod.  I've been loosely following the title for some time, and of course when I saw it had co-op, my interest picked up.  The one turn off for me was the fact I thought it was an RTS, something that's not exactly my favorite genre.  Turns out, it's anything but. Demigod is actually something closer to a Diablo than say a Warcraft.  Sure the screen is filled with hundreds of troops at a time, but those troops are directly under your control.  Instead you control a demigod, and your goal is to turn the tide of the battle by helping those troops.  There's a whole RPG meta element over the game as you earn experience for killing enemies and completing objectives.  As you level up you'll unlock new abilities and even earn money to use to buy items for your character.
