Reading up on Prey

Friday, March 31st, 2006

Firing Squad has a good long interview with the CEO of Human Head, Tim Gerritsen about their upcoming game, Prey.
They go over quite a bit and it’s a nice read for those looking forward to the game. They’ve got plenty of screenshots and they tend to hit the major points of questions someone might have […]

More Crysis Screenshots

Wednesday, March 29th, 2006

The more I see of this game the harder it is to believe. These shots look gorgeous, and from the read it sounds like it’s gonna have a decent plotline. Aliens, special forces, big guns. What’s not to like?! Obviously that’s a flawed statement, but just…look at the screens!
Best. Jungle. EvAr.
Also there’s been some statements […]

Planetside Reserves

Monday, March 27th, 2006

A while back I mentioned that MMOFPS game Planetside was gonna let people play free for a year. Well that time is now upon us. So saunder on over and download the client weighing in at 2gbs and start tearin it up in the name of whatever conglomeration you deem worthy of your sk1llz.
Be warned though. […]

Crysis and UT2K7

Thursday, March 23rd, 2006

So the folks at 1up were good enough to get video cam footage of both Cysis and UT2K7 at the latest GDC. 2K7 was a playable demo while Crysis was just a movie. But oohh what a movie. The scary part is that we’re now at a time where telling “real” game footage from CGI […]

Battlefield 2142

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2006

For all your BF2 fans out there (And there are many) word has recently come down that their 2142 project is a go for release in Autumn. Which means we’ll get it at Christmas time. I’ve never been a huge fan of the Battlefield series, but I may just join the throng of followers.
We’re creating a […]

Illumina

Monday, March 20th, 2006

Games Industry had this tid-bit about, and I quote, “Illumina! Hardcore Kick-Ass, Semi-Tactical Online Multiplayer FPS!”. Now that’s a mouthful. Unfortunately, they’re not very good at telling you about the game
Illumina is best described as an online multiplayer semi-tactical first person shooter (FPS) set in the year of 2046.
Best described eh? That didn’t tell me […]

Halo 3 launch to coincide with PS3?

Wednesday, March 15th, 2006

Well no duh.
I think I mentioned this a while back in that Microsoft would be saving it’s killer game for the PS3 launch so they could take the wind out of Sony’s sails a bit. Though Sony seems to be doing this quite well on their own, with PS3 delays and whatnot.
Captain Obvious over at […]

Field Ops

Monday, March 13th, 2006

Blues News had a blurb today on a game coming out called Field Ops. They’re trying something a little different on this one, billing it as a “First Person Shooter / Real-Time Strategy” game. Because you know, when one genre isn’t good enough anymore, we’ll start combining them. Though I remember, Battlezone did this a […]

Game Hype and Press

Monday, March 13th, 2006

While this isn’t exactly FPS news, I have talked about gaming hype before, and my stern disdain of it. Well I recently found an article on Kotaku that seems to have found a strong source for the hype itself. Press releases. They’re always positive. You never hear anyone talk about the game like it truly […]

Project Offset

Friday, March 10th, 2006

Because Amber is just so cool, she forwarded this to me.
Now at first glance I was like….FPS??..bullsh*t!! But that’s what it says. Though how you can have an FPS without any guns per se is a little past me, but that’s okay. I’m sure we will still have violence and killing and ..stuff.
Poject […]
