There can’t be a person alive who hasn’t seen the old ‘Battle of Britain’ movie. Even kids who’re too young to have had their first history lesson have probably had it inflicted on them at Christmas by nostalgic Grandparents, muttering about rationing and the Blitz and how rare bananas were. We all remember the horror [...]
Most gamers with any kind of interest in racing will have played a need for speed title at some point in their life. Without doubt the series has stagnated in recent releases so EA have passed the reigns to creators of the Burnout franchise Criterion to see what they can come up with to re-ignite [...]
A new year and EA sports churns out the latest edition of this multi award winning franchise, So what’s new this year? first and probably most important is the updated physics system, this basically makes player movement particularly during hits look and feel much more realistic than those in previous titles. The other most notable [...]
If anyone could save us from Zombies it would be Chuck Norris, under the circumstances Chuck Green “Mans Up” to the task in Norris’ notable absence.
Chuck Greene is no pansy photographer, he actually looks like a Zombie killer, and better than that, he “is” a Zombie killer…. professionally.
So, Playstation Move. Either an important new step in motion control technology (if you believe Sony) or a late-to-the-party clone of Nintendo’s super successful Wii (if you believe pretty much everybody else). With Microsoft’s Kinect just around the corner, it looks like sitting in your pants with a joypad in your lap is on the [...]
‘TAAAAAAAANK!’ I scream, flopping belly down in what I hope is enough of a rise to provide cover from the metal beast’s mounted MG. Two of my squad members become a fine red mist and the thing begins to move. As my buddy yells into the headset for a sitrep, the MG opens up and [...]
They develop other games for fun really they do.
Oh, and they film themselves doing it and timelapse it and put it on YouTube… just to show everyone else what we could be doing but aren’t, and also partially to show off, but I suspect mostly because they find it amusing to do so.
I’m a bush. A very deadly bush with a suppressed sniper rifle. Picking off anyone who gets within 2 feet of the stairs to our bunker. Unfortunately someone has spotted the deadly bush-that-I-am and is sprinting round behind me. His burst of speed makes him visible on my radar and I spot the blip. I [...]
Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is, to quote Tristram Shandy, my hobbie-horse. Despite the groans every time I mention it, I persist in telling as many people as possible how good it is. All the time. And it is. Good. Honestly.
You could be forgiven though, for thinking otherwise. A battery of complaints have been levelled at [...]
Augmented Reality. It’s a term that’s being bandied about all over the shop right now. I first came across it when *cough*Gizmondo*/cough* was busy conning a few poor saps into forking over some cash a few years back. GamesTm and Edge ran a couple of articles about the potential of integrating a forward facing camera’s [...]
