Prey Reviewed

Monday, July 31st, 2006

So, this was a good weekend for me. My copy of Prey finally arrived after a bunch of shipping confusion. I got a chance to sit down on Saturday and play the it through.
Overall I enjoyed the game. It was a solid story with pretty decent shooting. The portal stuff is fun and there are […]

Call of Juarez English

Friday, July 28th, 2006

Just when you thought the Germans were having all the fun. Evil Avatar has the goods for us English peeps.
Editing with a “review”
So the demo lets you play through a mission for each character. First off, the game loads so, amazingly, snail
emulating, nap enducingly slow. I really hope this is fixed. Each mission has the […]

Call of Juarez German Demo

Thursday, July 27th, 2006

Please excuse the weak post today as I’ve spent the entire morning at the DMV and so all you’re getting is this.
Suck it up.
Hopefully, I haven’t alienated the German readers and if so, I hope to regain their love and trust and…whatever. Worthplaying has the good on this one. The demo for Call of Juarez […]

“Xbox” Murders

Wednesday, July 26th, 2006

Normally, I try to keep the posts to FPS stuff, because afterall, that’s what you’re here for. Today, however, I happened to come across this article on Yahoo news and it got me kinda angry or rather annoyed. I saw the headline and thought that it was gonna be that they committed a crime similar […]

Quake 1 John Romero Interview

Tuesday, July 25th, 2006

So over at Quake Expo one of the guys got a nice interview with John Romero for the 10th Anniversary of the aforementioned Quake Expo. There’s two pages worth and it covers a lot. I rather like it more than normal interviews as it has a “underground” feel to it. It’s a fan asking about […]

More grabbing of..the bags.

Monday, July 24th, 2006

I hate slow news weeks. Little things come in here and there but nothing of real significance.
Worthplaying has a quick run-down of the possible proposed system requirements for Crysis. The recommended side is kinda on the high but as how “next” gen this game is it’s not all together surprising. It just makes my wallet […]

FEAR and Starcraft Ghost

Thursday, July 20th, 2006

Nothing related between the two, I just didn’t feel the FEAR post was big enough to warrant it’s own separate thingy so I was all clever like and combined them.
So the news of FEAR Extraction Point isn’t exactly, new, guys over at Pro-G managed to get a hands-on preview of the game and as such […]


Wednesday, July 19th, 2006

So in the same “speech” or whatever, Gabe Newell announced Team Fortress 2, the game Portals was also mentioned. People were saying they were taking the portal idea from Prey and kinda running with it. This morning I saw a trailer for the game and Holy Crap does it look cool. Worthplaying has the trailer […]

Prey Sale

Wednesday, July 19th, 2006

Thanks to Evil Avatar for the heads up on this one. Gogamer is having a 48 hour sale (16 hours 28minutes left) and one of the games on sale is Prey. Instead of the regular $44.90 price you can grab it for $32.90. That’s a good chunk of savings. There’s a couple of other games […]

Turok: Maybe it won’t suck

Tuesday, July 18th, 2006

Hahahah. Okay, so yeah. We all know it will. Worthplaying has a few screenshots and a quick synopsis of the new Turok game and as I squinted to make anything out on the screens I realized it still looked awful. I remember playing the last one and I couldn’t believe that had been released on […]
