    Yes, yes, we all know Half Life 2’s graphics were getting old… well, in case you didn’t know, Unreal 3 screenshots. These have been released months ago, check the official site for trailers etc.

    Screenshots: http://media.pc.gamespy.com/media/670/670283/imgs_1.html

    Official Site: http://www.unrealtechnology.com/html/technology/ue30.shtml

    In the Half Life 2 article, the interview makes a very good point about game engines and tools being wasted. Developers spend ALL this time making a new “the next big thing” engine, yet when all is done and said, they make a game, it sells a few thousand copies, and they move on. Engine is left and forgotten. Think about it this way, of all the game engines that has been created, only Unreal has had real COMMERCIAL success.

    Call of Duty 2 Preview: http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/call-of-duty-2/605310p1.html

    Onto the less “major” gaming news:

    Looks like one of the most anticipated and ‘professional’ HL2 mods have been closed down. Damn, I wanted this one bad.

    [bold]Film Giant MGM Shuts Down 'Stargate: Source' Mod[/bold]

    The creators behind the Half-Life 2 mod Stargate: Source have received a cease and desist order from MGM to immediately stop working on their mod project. "We are very displeased to announce that apparently MGM the huge company feels very threatened by a group of individuals spread throughout the world. We have received a letter to desist from the creation of the Stargate: Source mod. At this time we are still discussing the issue but it does appear that we are going to be shutting down." Albeit regretable, this decision by MGM was expected since they are involved in the Stargate SG1: The Alliance game project, under development at JoWood.

    Remember Phantom? Nice name, isn’t it?

    [bold]Infinium Labs' Executive Vice President Resigns[/bold]

    Richard S. Skoba announced today that he has turned in his resignation to Infinium Labs. Mr. Skoba was a member of the senior management team, serving as the Executive Vice President of Business Development and Sales for Infinium Labs since January 2004. His resignation is effective as of April 30, 2005.

    Thanks sldude. =)

    Now.. on with the gaming news!

    In case you haven’t tried the demo (which is SO MUCH FUN!! FUNFUNFUNEXPLODYFUN! Okay, I’ll stop), the Weapons System Footage shows how the system works. There has also been a slew of Pariah movies that I haven’t updated you about, because frankly, even though Pariah is going to be such an incredible game, I don’t need to tell you EVERYTHING that’s come out about it… you can do that on your own. =D

    http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=897

    Might and Magic V screenshots

    http://www.3dgamers.com/news/more/1096481470/

    By no doubt you’ve heard about Jade Empire by now. It’s been rated ‘Top Dog’ by almost every magazine, but some have mixed feelings. Whatever you feel about it here’s another excellent and utmost fair review by GameTrailers. Be warned fanboys, you might want to turn away.

    http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=583

    Scarface game? Didn’t hear about it? Or you heard about it and wanted screenshots? Here they are! They better not spoil this one, most “Movie games” are mediocre at best. There are a few exceptions such as Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay… but let’s face it, not everyone can be a winner. n_n

    http://www.worthplaying.com/article.php?sid=24888&mode=thread&order=0

    The next game from the developers of the phenomenal Max Payne. Can’t wait to hear about this.

    Oooh, look! A new game with screenshots!

    http://www.3dgamers.com/news/more/1096481485/

    Here are new screenshots of some of my highly anticipated games, The Witcher and Stargate SG-1: The Alliance respectively. Goddamn, both those games look better and better everytime I see them.

    http://www.3dgamers.com/news/more/1096481481/

    http://www.3dgamers.com/news/more/1096481490/

    Another screenshot session with Star Wars: Empire At War! Now you see what I mean when I’m saying Half Life 2 graphics are getting old. =P

    http://media.pc.gamespy.com/media/713/713904/imgs_1.html

    And… it’s the game you’ve been hearing whispers about. GameTrailers presents the Video Review of Lego Star Wars! Have a look, trust me, you won’t be wasting your time! =D

    http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=1496

    Next up… I TONY MONTANA! That’s right, a Scarface teaser trailer to follow up from the screenshots in yesterday’s post!

    Alien13 will die a mysterious death when he goes to the lavatory.. anyway, on with today's news!

    It’s a media circus today! No, seriously… so let’s get this show on the road!

    First up, if you haven’t played the critically acclaimed Brothers in Arms, here’s the demo! Although… SHAME ON YOU!

    http://www.3dgamers.com/news/more/1096481524/

    Guess what.. a trailer of the Half Life 2 expansion! I hear you scream, “already?! OMGWTF”, but hey… I bring you the best news!

    http://www.3dgamers.com/dlselect/games/halflife2/hl2-coast.exe.html

    Or, if you prefer not to download, GameTrailers also has a streaming one… obviously a lot lower in quality compared to 3DGamer’s offering.

    http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=13

    Prey re-announced.

    http://www.worthplaying.com/article.php?sid=24994&mode=thread&order=0

    Fine.. it wasn’t really a media circus, but I have to get you interested one way or another. =P

    There has been a breach. Dispatch all emergency teams. Meanwhile.. you slackers take a look at this!

    Nightwatch, a game I’m excited about, still in early development though, I’ll update you on the game as more comes out. It’s going to be turn based and use the Silent Storm engine. For now though, screenshots!

    http://www.3dgamers.com/news/more/1096481538/

    Hellgate: London screenshots and trailer. You must check out the screenshots.

    http://www.3dgamers.com/news/more/1096481532/

    Seems like a review of Area 51… personally I don’t agree with it, so when I play the game I’ll post what I think of it!

    http://xbox.gamespy.com/xbox/area-51/607918p1.html

    God.. I can’t wait for this game. Let’s hope they deliver what they promise (it sure looks like they do though.) Dungeon Siege II Preview:

    http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/dungeon-siege-ii/607368p1.html

    Looks like Phantom might be released afterall… but don’t hold your breath.

    [bold]Infinium Labs Collaborates with OpSource for Phantom[/bold]

    Infinium Labs today announced an agreement with OpSource, an enabler of Software as a Service (SaaS) applications. The agreement enrolls Infinium Labs in a 90-day SaaS Enablement Program to utilize OpSource's suite of tools and services to analyze and fine-tune the Company's business model, operational plan and service delivery.

    Finally, finally, finally, a game that has been announced 6 – 7 years ago seems to have sprung to life and screenshots have surfaced. I’m not expecting anything good out of this title, but it has Specnaz. If there’s one military team that doesn’t take shit from anyone, it’s them.

    http://www.3dgamers.com/news/more/1096481542/

    And.. a RTS. That’s right, a RTS in my thread, so you know there’s gotta be something special about this game for it to appear in my thread. n_n Just look at those images…

    http://media.pc.gamespy.com/media/743/743961/imgs_1.html

    The first Black and White II trailer. ‘Nuff said.

    http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=156

    When you’ve stopped screaming, have a look at this! You guessed it, it’s another Pariah Preview Trailer, but this time it’s from GameTrailers so you know this is top stuff!

    http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=897

    And that concludes it for today!

    P.S. I got Guild Wars today. I’m going to be going crazy for at least a week, so apologies in advance if the updates seem a bit sparse. =P

    Another new day! Or the same day, since I’ve been playing Guild Wars for a prolonged period. =P

    Today’s headlines are… *cheap music*

    EXCLUSIVE Age of Empires III Hands-On Preview! More jaw dropping screenshots.

    http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/age-of-empires-iii/608322p1.html

    Tomb Raider: Legends movie! Game’s just fresh off announced and a trailer’s already out! n_n

    http://www.3dgamers.com/news/more/1096481556/

    A next gen console title! Interesting name, NotCom…. loads of screenshots, but they’re all of 1 track I guess…

    http://www.worthplaying.com/article.php?sid=25088&mode=thread&order=0

    That’s it for today! Back to Guild Wars! =D

    geestar: Thanks. =D

    qwerttyp: These posts are meant for people to read, but they're very welcome to comment on it. Unlike me, some hardcore gaming people just don't have time to keep up with the gaming news, and I bring them the best so they don't have to waste their precious time browsing through all that junk. =)

    Now if you'd excuse me...

    Another day, another post. =D

    Sonic Boom! Windows Shatter! I hope your speakers aren’t turned on that loud… because it’s time for Battlefield 2! There are plenty of excellent looking trailers around, and when I say excellent, that means gameplay wise AND graphics wise.

    Here’s a new set of screenshots and trailer:

    http://www.3dgamers.com/screenshots/games/battlefield2/

    Also, there’s news of a demo coming June.

    'Battlefield 2' - Demo Expected Mid June

    Posted by Rainier on Friday, April 29 @ 17:29:45 PDT

    One of the PlanetBattlefield editors is currently attending a community event at the EA campus and during a presentation executive producers Scott Evans revealed that a Battlefield 2 demo is in the works and it is expected to be released Mid June featuring one map. No details whether this will be a single or multiplayer demo, but judging from EA's trackrecord, we can assume it will probably be MP. The official Battlefield 2 release date is set for June 23, 2005 in North America and Europeans will get lucky a few days earlier on the 17th.

    Normally I wouldn’t do this, but since this is probably the most popular game…PC Version of San Andreas screenshots:

    http://www.3dgamers.com/news/more/1096481563/

    Here is GameSpy’s MMORPG “Out of the Box” Preview of Guild Wars. Their MMORPG section are VERY in depth and they don’t just base it on the initial play, but they play for around 2 – 3 weeks before writing an actual review, and from then on they update and post their opinions about the way the game is headed. For those GameSpy haters… shoo!

    http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/guild-wars/608686p1.html

    New screens of an action RPG game that was thought dead. It is looking rather interesting I must say.

    http://www.worthplaying.com/article.php?sid=25105

    A mod that was released on UT2004, gets ported to the Source engine with a competitive price! I played the UT2004 mod… this game is addictive to say the least.

    Guild Wars is such an amazing game! The exploration is INSANE! But… since we have a lot of news today, I’ll stop with the worshipping. =D

    First up, Gothic III screenshots! They look astounding, at first I thought they were lifelike.

    http://www.3dgamers.com/news/more/1096481572/

    Trailer and new screenshots of an up-coming FPS game that extensively uses BulletTime, definitely worth a look:

    http://www.3dgamers.com/news/more/1096481583/

    This isn’t PC related, but it’s such a big gaming event that I have no choice (It was the mind controlling, I swear!) but to put a link:

    http://ps2.gamespy.com/playstation-2/ico-ii/608625p1.html

    Here’s the PC games being released this month… can’t believe Area 51 got delayed without it being announced. Oh well… only 19 quick days to wait with Guild Wars! n_n

    http://archive.gamespy.com/gamereleases/may05/

    And that’s it! Tootles for now!

    For those MMORPGers (you should be playing Guild Wars, not reading this!), here’s a preview on Dungeons and Dragons. I really hope they pull this off… D&D practically invented this genre.

    http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/dungeons-dragons-online/609828p1.html

    For those that didn’t want to download the TimeShift trailer, here’s the streaming GT version:

    http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=1606

    For those who were excited about Stronghold 2… well, this guy didn’t like it too much. Since I’m not going to play this RTS (yeah, flame me!), how about you give it a try and post up a mini-review of it? =D

    http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/stronghold-2/609923p1.html

    Here’s a trailer of Gothic III… I KNOW, I KNOW, the graphics looks frighteningly realistic, but what can you do? This is the new age, the new reckoning, better enjoy it before technology turns on us.

    http://www.worldofgothic.de/dl/index.php?go=downloads&file_id=153

    Also, just right after Pariah was announced going Gold, they announce this:

    'Pariah' (Xbox/PC) Sequel Already in the Works

    Posted by Rainier on Wednesday, May 04 @ 12:59:34 PDT

    Digital Extremes barely shipped Pariah to retail stores earlier this week, and word is already out of a sequel being under development. In an interview with Canadian gaming mag Wham Gaming!, DE's James Schmalz confirmed Pariah 2 is due to follow shortly, and on current generation machines, not next-gen. James also said "Pariah 2 will be like a 'bridge' game between current and future systems." The making of a franchise, it seems ...

    Looks like there will be more Grenade Launching Fun!™

    New FSW game announced… I liked the last one, so I’m definitely keeping tabs on this.

    http://www.worthplaying.com/article.php?sid=25181&mode=thread&order=0

    Remember the news tidbit about Max Payne developers, Remedy Entertainment making a new game? Well, I have the latest scoop on it, along with screenshots and trailers. =)

    http://www.worthplaying.com/article.php?sid=25186&mode=thread&order=0

    That’s it for today.. time for more Guild Wars! =D

    Another update!

    A new game based in medieval environments.. been a while since I played a good sword slashing action game.

    http://www.3dgamers.com/news/more/1096481598/

    Fable: Lost Chapter screenshots! It looks so much better than the XBOX version… I can’t wait to get my hands on this. Let’s hope they changed the game so it doesn’t carry the problems of XBOX over to PC. =)

    http://www.3dgamers.com/news/more/1096481600/

    A first person shooter that will use the Unreal 3 engine unveiled.

    http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/section-8/610507p1.html

    A teaser trailer to follow up on the Alan Wake game yesterday!

    http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=1608

    Knights of the Temple II announced! Now the first game wasn’t exactly great, so this time I hope they’ll pull it off, or at least have some fun swordplay in the game. It doesn’t look too shabby this time either. =D

    http://www.worthplaying.com/article.php?sid=25201&mode=thread&order=0

    And another new game announced! A multiplatform FPS! It definitely does not sound like a run-of-a-mill FPS shooter.

    http://www.worthplaying.com/article.php?sid=25198&mode=thread&order=0

    God… with E3 coming up soon it really is hard to keep up with all the amazing-looking game releases. It’s hard to stop drooling and start typing. =P Sure as hell wish I could go to E3.

    I’m going to have to think of something special for E3, there’s no possible way I’ll have time to keep you updated on all the major announcements. =( But, I know a few sites that have had excellent, in-depth yet easy to read 24/7 E3 coverage, so I’ll direct you to those sites and post the BIGGEST announcements here. Now, on with t3h news0rz!

    We have ParaWorld, a RTS! What is it about? I have no clue, but one thing I know is that it will look stunning. Have a look for yourself and embrace for the impact.

    http://www.3dgamers.com/news/more/1096481609/

    Another gorgeous and exciting Battlefield 2 trailer. If you haven’t taken a look at the others, I suggest you do it right now. =D

    http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=46

    Here’s an 2005 E3 trailer of The Witcher!

    http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=1612

    Here’s a GT video review of Area 51. Hmmm.. it looks like most of the reviews are saying the same thing about Area 51… but I’m not giving up on it yet, going to play it first and then decide for meself. =D

    http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=98

    This is a XBOX game I’ve been following for quite some time… and it’s finally been released with a GT video review. Buy this, it’s only $19.99!
