The game should be released later this year.

The Best Of Two Worlds

13 Jun 2011  6 Comments

I went back to PC gaming a while back and really loved it. Getting your games digitally is far more convenient than buying a physical disk. And also getting it immediately as soon as it is released is just great (if it is available for the PC).
Also, playing FPS’s with a keyboard and mouse is 10 times better than playing it on any console. But for some games you just need a good controller, like driving games for example. And in my opinion, the XBOX 360 controller is the best controller available out there. And because I’ve got a few laying around, I just got the XBOX 360 Wireless Receiver to connect the 360 controller to my PC. So now whenever I need to play a game with a controller, I just power on my 360 controller and thats it. All of the games that I played using the controller recognize that it is a 360 controller and even color code the buttons and selections in the game.

The XBOX 360 Wireless Receiver is available at Amazon for around $28/KD8 [Link].

Sony announced a new technology at their E3 conference. A “PlayStation” branded 3D display that has the ability to display to separate images simultaneously at full screen. So multiplayer games will no longer suffer from the cropped up images and each player having just half the screen.

This 24″ display comes with a copy of Resistance 3, a pair of glasses (second set will cost $69) and a HDMI cable. All this for $500.

There are 2 major expos taking place this week. WWDC, Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference will kick-off later today with Steve Jobs taking the stage and will announce a few things:

  • iOS 5
  • OS X Lion

What I hope he will announce:

  • A revamped notification and widget system for the iOS 5. Something similar to what the Android has.
  • A new Airport/Time Capsule. A lot of theories are built upon a new Time Capsule and it getting either an A4 or A5 chip. I was in the process of getting on till I heard those rumors and decided to hold off for a few days.
  • Macbook Air i3/i5 upgrade.
  • Mac Mini i3/i5 upgrade.
  • Apple TV A5 chip upgrade and the ability to run apps.

The other event that is taking place this week is the Electronic Entertainment Exposition (E3 for short). There are a lot of games that I’m looking forward to playing, so I hope I get more info about them:

  • Nintendo’s new console
  • Uncharted 3

  • Need for Speed: The Run
  • Forza 4

Portal 2: Best Game I’ve Played in A Long Time

1 May 2011  1 Comment

Portal 2 is a First Person/Puzzle Platform video game that is hugely addictive and fun to play. It is the sequel to the very popular Portal game that was released back in 2007. Its a nice change from the regular FPS’s and other action games.

The game is available on PC,PS3 and XBOX 360. I managed to complete the single player campaign in a couple of days but there is still the multiplayer to waste more hours on.

For those of you who weren’t paying attention to EA releasing a Battlefield 3 trailer every couple of weeks. They just released a full length gameplay trailer (12 mins) showcasing Dice’s upcoming first-person-shooter.

The graphics are stunning but the AI has a long way to go before it can be interesting. Release is still far off as its scheduled for a November release.
