Rowbawts

Friday, June 30th, 2006

I would have posted about this earlier but I’ve been so discouraged and sad.
Chromehounds demo is out. But not for those of us in the USA or Canada.
and
Transformers movie teaser is out at their official site. Emphasis on the word teaser. I gotta wait 1 year for that nonsense and all they give me is […]

Top 10 Weapons

Thursday, June 29th, 2006

Youtube being a constant source of entertainment and amusement had someone post Gametrailer’s Top 10 video game weapons.
Most feel the list is off on some parts, but I do feel they got some of the better weapons. Like the chainsaw, BFG, Cerebral Bore.
Here’s the list for you lazy types

Cerebral Bore -Turok
Chainsaw - Doom
Spread […]

Huxley will have in-game ads

Wednesday, June 28th, 2006

The news about Webzen signing up with in-game advertisers has been floating around a bit lately, and Evil Avatar got wind of a press release from Webzen confirming as much, but this time for Huxley.
Bleh.
Yeah. Huxley’s gonna have in-game ads. Whether or not these will be dynamic ads that are changed periodically from time to […]

Some Morning Funny

Jon Stewart on the Daily Show.
Need I say more?
Not of the FPS variety, but games nonetheless.

Episodic Content

Monday, June 26th, 2006

While surfing the intArw3b we all know and love. I happened across this person’s view of the new trend in gaming culture. Episodic Content. He’s written two parts to the “rant”. The first one taking a stab at FPS games that are doing this, (HL2, SiN, Battlefield 2) and the way in which they do […]

More STALKER…ing

Monday, June 26th, 2006

So. Another interview up at Firing Squad. They talk with Oleg V. Yavorsky. Which is much easier to copy and paste than it is to say outloud. I guess he’s the game’s PR guy. Though he’s fairly good at keeping away from the “OMG We’re so cool!” statements. So the read is nice and gives […]

Prey Demo Reviewed

Thursday, June 22nd, 2006

I do believe this game needs to have dramamine shipped along with the box. The potential for throwing up is fairly high, especially when the action gets fast paced and you’re going from one orientation to another. They do start you off rather easy, only one room shifting thing at a time. But eventually they […]

Chromehounds Multiplayer video

Wednesday, June 21st, 2006

Love me some giant robots.
Yes. I know. Different language. Scroll down for the Multiplayer trailer. Didn’t want to link to it directly.

Crysis screenshots and video

Tuesday, June 20th, 2006

Crysis-Online posted a few new screenshots from the upcoming “photo-realistic” shooter. They look mighty damn good (as if they wouldn’t) and Game Guru the pop-up happy site has a 114mb trailer for your occular pleasure.
The excitement around this game is amazing. It could be the worst shooter ever and people would play it for the […]
