July 12, 2009

In a surprise move by development group Wildfire Games, their long-standing strategy game project, 0 A.D., has just been re-licensed under the GNU General Public License v2. Additionally, all game content and art is being released under the terms of the popular Creative Commons license.

0 A.D. is a historically-centric real time strategy game which is slated for release on multiple platforms including Linux and Windows. The game has been in closed development since 2001, but the developers felt they could make more progress by removing licensing barriers to attract fresh manpower to the project. Indeed, this decision may bode well for the project, significantly advancing both the speed of progress and the size of their user base.

LittleBigPlanet 1.07 Patch Released

December 19, 2008

1.07 patch adds some new functionality that users should find very handy. The ability to search for levels using names or tags is the biggest addition, however my favourite is the ability to view highest rated, most hearted, newest and the busiest levels, which gives you a nice overview of whats hot or not, rather than wasting time going through random levels.

There’s also a new shop that shows all available content for download, read on for more details on that.

Gears of War Xbox 360 Review

June 12, 2007

Guns, guts and aliens, what more could you ask for? Gears of War delivers on all three, and does it fantastically. Even without a High-Def TV this game has mind-blowing graphics, from the incredible details on the landscape to the skin details on the characters, you can even see wrinkles that move with their face! The physics in the game are top-notch thanks to the Unreal 3 engine used to create all the effects.

The game really earned the 18 rating it received with the graphic gore contained within, like one of your guns has a chainsaw bayonet that, you guessed it, cuts the enemy in half.Not only does blood spray the surrounding area but also the game screen for a few seconds. Even the cutscenes use the in-game graphics and without a High-Def TV this game looks almost real. This is a game where you could literally spend all day admiring the graphics, even standing on a pier in the middle of a rainstorm with water below you will give you an unforgettable experience.
