Halo 2 and Windows Vista

Friday, February 10th, 2006

Okay. So. We’ve got Halo on the Xbox. Later released on the PC. It was alright. They left out the co-op one of the biggest boons to the game imo, and the controls were all still mapped like a gamepad. Whatever.
Halo 2 gets released and we all wait and wonder when they’ll make a PC […]

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

Friday, February 3rd, 2006

I’ve been holding off on posting about this game for a while now because I really didn’t want to have to type out the title all of the time. So from here on out I’ll refer to it as Monkey. Monkey is a great replacement word because it has no periods. Only one letter has […]

Halo 3 ? Maybe. Sorta. Kinda. Who knows.

Wednesday, February 1st, 2006

Rumors are running rampant about the next blockbuster from Bungie. There’s no question to the fact that there was gonna be another Halo. It was all just a matter of time. Well apparently that time has come? Sorta. Apparently there’s an “insider” who’s got the “scoop” that says Halo 3 is done! Microsoft is just […]

Upcoming FPS games for 2006

Tuesday, January 31st, 2006

It’s great to feel so popular.
Or rather, to write about a popular genre.
I was never popular.
Sorry.
I won’t make the mistake of confusing the two again.
Anyways IGN has a list of upcoming FPS games for 2006. It’s not a huge list but it definitely highlights a few of the big up and […]

Time Shift Demo

Tuesday, January 31st, 2006

I saw a video trailer for this and it looked rather nifty. Rather than slowing time, you just stop it. Hahah. Whatcha gonna do now Neo!?
Sorry. The game looks really nice and in addtion to stopping time you get the slow option, make it go backwards. It’s like a VCR. Do you kids still remember […]

The Onion strikes again

Saturday, January 28th, 2006

The guys over at The Onion have once again hit the mark with their riveting, gripping and truth-revealing stories. This time they took the story of Take-two’s new interactive game “Stacker” and really made it something worth reading. They interview both sides and get the full story without pulling any punches. Stacker looks to be […]

Wednesday, January 25th, 2006

Yes! Now you too can explore your fantasies of fighting hordes of evil as you collect different strands of denim in order to combine them into the perfect pair of jeans!!! (A must have for you ladies)
No?
Fine.
Folks over at GameCloud did an interview with the HR manager of Cauldron, the folks bringing us the game […]

Planetside Free?

Tuesday, January 24th, 2006

As we all know, Planetside hasn’t been doing to well. My roommate got an e-mail from them recently letting him reactive his account for a free month or something. I, however, got no such e-mail. Hmph. Their official forums seem to be planning a bit more.
What do you do when your game isn’t doing well […]

Uber Soldier

Monday, January 23rd, 2006

I remember having seen a video of this somewhere. I can’t remember where though. It didn’t look too bad. The blood effect on the screen, while somewhat novel, looked like it just got in the way. Yes, my screen is bloody from my own body and possibly that of the thousand other evil Nazis I […]
