[L4D] I Hate Mountains

Posted by ned
I Hate Mountains created by Nicolas "NykO18" Grevet, Marc "Moroes" Bidoul and Geoffroy "Kane" Espinasse with community help and support is now on both servers. This Campaign is stunning and the gameplay engages you in a way not found in many custom releases. It's also VERY actively supported. The first public release has only recently happened and the team is working hard on updating it with well over 20 fixes and tweaks. These guys are pushing the limits of the game's engine to its limits.. check the website for details.

There's heaps of info about the Campaign, the team and even a detailed changelog for the soon to be released version 1.2 plus much more.

When installing this, please read the readme file!

[L4D] new campaign on test server 
Thursday, 13 May, 2010, 12:58 - Left 4 Dead
Posted by ned
I've added a campaign by MapEater called RoadToNowhere. It's at a beta stage so it's buggy but it's still worth a game. There are also a few graphics and fps issues and I think the finale is too easy but I'm hoping at least most of the negatives will get sorted out with future releases.

It's great to play a campaign that doesn't 'feel' similar to the originals!

I'll add this one to the main server pending updates.

[L4D] new additions to servers!

I've added two more campaigns to both servers.

Dark Blood v1.9 Beta is set on a tankership and offers both co-op and versus. It's still in beta stage so there may be a few updates coming. As it is now it plays very well.
-thanks to TOG Unknown for letting me know about this one-

Suicide Blitz v3.0 is another map that plays well and doesn't have any "samey" feel to it like many custom campaigns do. The author, R.T. Frisk, is still active with this project having recently fixed a major AI issue that prevented me from wanting to upload this to the main server. It's on there now, fixed and ready to play!

[COD:B-OPS] new Call of Duty: Black Ops due NOV 2010 
Saturday, 1 May, 2010, 01:19 - Call of Duty
Posted by ned

The seventh title in the series, Call Of Duty: Black Ops is set during the Vietnam War, and will focus on members of the Studies and Observations Group, a covert group undertaking the most dangerous and secretive missions of the conflict.

From Cuba to the Arctic and the jungles of Vietnam, Call of Duty: Black Ops features stunning cinematic graphics and intense gameplay that puts you right at the heart of the action.

SOURCE - Call Of Duty: Black Ops Heading To The Arctic & Cuba Too

Call of Duty: Black Ops is being developed by Treyarch, an Activision studio and is due for release NOV 2010

Call Of Duty: Black Ops | Home

For me, the Call of Duty series peaked at United Offensive. I will however be following the news on this one. The release time is simialr to the new Medal of Honor and I have an interest in both due to past games. It'll be interesting to see how the developers try to make their respective titles stand-out from each other. Time will tell all.

[MOH] thoughts and info on Medal of Honor 2010 
Saturday, 1 May, 2010, 00:43 - Medal of Honor
Posted by ned
The up-coming Medal of Honor is utising two game engines. Unreal Engine 3 for singleplayer and Frostbite engine for multiplayer. I don't know of a game that's done that before. I love both engines so I'm keen to see how this plays in both singleplayer and multiplayer. I really enjoyed the singleplayer element of Battlefied: Bad Company 2 and would have liked the news of this new Medal of Honor using the same Frostbite engine for its singleplayer. Apparently the Unreal Engine 3 will be heavily modified so some surprises may be on the way. Either way I'm confident it'll be a winning game for many. But who will like the singleplay and multiplay?

Even though DICE have stated people shouldn’t expect a clone of Bad Company 2 for Medal of Honor’s multiplayer it doesn't look like good news for me with Battlefield: Bad Company 2 players getting awarded in Medal of Honor with early access to the M24 sniper rifle so it looks like the MP aspect of this games will use a similar stat-unlock-award system to the Battlefield series which I've never liked. Why penalise newbies??

[PS3] I've had a look into the dark side ? 
Sunday, 25 April, 2010, 03:57 - >PlayStation 3
Posted by ned
Well I bought a PlayStation 3. For gaming? No... but I was curious to see what gaming was like on a console. I have had quick goes on PlayStation 3s and Xbox 360s before but they just didn't grab me. My genre of choice is shooters, specifically 1st person. With console controllers I just can't aim. When I say this I really mean it. I'm appalling and embarrassing at the same time.

I was in the market for a home entertainment package and of course required a Blu-ray Player. Learning that the PS3 was a Blu-ray player and can be used as an excellent media center (after listening to the TOG Games Industry Podcast - Episode 7) I including one in the package.

I'm impressed so far with the entertainment package but won't bore people about that. Now I had my own PS3 I could get to see what games I could play on occasions that weren't shooters. To be 100% sure with my lack of ability to play console shooters I downloaded some demos... ouch painful lol.

I remembered being impressed with how my nephew played Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth II on the Xbox 360 so I know there was potential for me to find something console-ned-friendly.

To keep things brief I now have three games in my collection.
(not including some Crash Bandicoot classics for my wife)

Fight Night Round 4
-recommended by a good gaming buddy TUB Baldy

God of War III
-I got after playing the demo

WipEout HD
-I got this after hearing about it in the TOG Games Industry Podcast Season 2 - Ep 19 and downloading the trailers.

I like what I see so far. There are games out there that I can enjoy on a console... just NOT shooters. I'm looking forward to playing these more especially WipEout HD multiplayer. I'll comment further of these games sometime soon..
