Eve-Online gamers take the fall.

Eve-Online the space biased mmo last week released it’s new graphics engion in the form of a major patch code named “Trinity”.

Trinity brings alot to the tables as far as the mmo world goes. Trinity is the new free expantion bringing 4 new ship classes and a total of 20 new ships to the table I believe ranging from small tactical electronic warfare frigits to large non combat jump frighters. Eve-Online brought new graphic and art content to the mmo tables that resembles some of the high end games of today thus pushing Eve-Online to back to the top of the good mmo graphics list once again. I fully expect that Eve-Online will be on the top of some of the great games 07 lists.

With this great new expansion there was a horrible coding problem that was released with it’s new graphic content. a file called boot.ini was created in the new expansion that happened to in windows 2000 or xp replace the root boot.ini effectively hosing your system if you restarted without fixing the problem. 12 hours after the incident was reported there where at least 750 affected users according to the eve-online forms. with an estimate of $100,000 + in estimated in damages.

Please if you think your are effected by this problem read the eve site below and fix yourself before it’s too late

Call Of Duty 4

If you guys want the scoop come and get it. Call of Duty 4 otherwise known as CoD4 has taken on a more modern roll when compared to it’s predisesors. biased in modern time Call of Duty 4 story is biased on 2 different teams, the U.S. Marine Core(USMC) and the British special air service (S.A.S.). But I don’t want to spoil anything for you guys so lets get down to the real review.

Call of Duty 4

Graphics – With the new graphics engin out the door CoD4 is looking more beautifull then ever. every model, every tank, every weapon, building has been maticulously detailed down to the tiny cracks in the wall. I cant imagine how many man hours they put into the details of their models. 10 out of 10

Sound – As with the whole series of CoD games all the typical sounds of the guns, bombs, voices, units, sound great this edition is no different. These sounds just add to the realism and builds upon what they already have. noticeable throughout the game there is a soundtrack tht starts to play, the music is a type of hype music that seems to do its job rather well propelling your emotions into a frenzy that will eventually end with alot of dead hostiles. 9 out of 10

Gameplay – Gameplay with typical FPS single player story lines are usually 1 of two things, you follow your team around and complete tasks and objectives to eventually complete your ultimate goal or your a solo killing machine and you take on the entire world. This game doesn’t break any originality records in this field but then it doesn’t need to. The implementation of the typical squad style gameplay of CoD4 has been done to perfection. Constant communication between your squad, yourself and the mission analyst makes the whole squad experience seem a bit fuller and more lifelike. With the addition of shooting through walls and some specialized sniping missions this game has a very high replay value and if thats not enough for you the leveling system in multipayer is sure to keep you playing for hours on in. 9.5 out of 10

Overview – With the current CoD standards that are out there im not sure how anyone could come up with a better or more well played game, but Infinity Ward’s Cod team has pulled it off again. Blazing new graphics, realistic high definition audio, and deep storyline will make this game a best seller, and one of my personal favorites for years to come. it is my recommendation that anyone who has skipped out on this game check out the demo that can be found here or go out and get yourself a copy!!9.5 out of 10!

Unreal Tournament 3 DEMO

Unreal Tournament 3 DEMO

As most of you might know by this point last Friday October 12th 2007 the Unreal Tournament 3 DEMO came out released from epic games the new shooter will be the 4th installment of the unreal tournament series. Ranging from the 90’s when Unreal Tournament was released to Unreal Tournament 2003 and later updated to 2004 Epic games have been setting the standard for what a first person shooter should be.

The Unreal Tournament series is a fast paced action first person shooter set in the future. Although the game at this time is not on the shelves the DEMO has come out and I will be reviewing it.

unreal tournament 3

Graphics – As with the other unreal games this installment is at the top of it’s class in the graphic category. With the newly created Unreal 3 engine behind the hood it’s no wonder that old system of yours is probably lagging when you turn it all up. Unreal Tournament 3 is a direct x10 game that has the agaia physics built in so if you got a card you can take advantage. The recommends specs on this are a bit low if you ask me, a hardcore gamer that needs 60+ fps to survive would need to turn almost everything down to low to stay in the game if he has a 7800gt or below, faster cards ie. 8800 series cards should do a lot better. 9.5 out of 10

Sound – With all new custom mixes and sound for our new bloody tourney where could they have gone wrong? they didn’t !! The soundtrack for the new Unreal Tournament is the best to date sporting numerous new themes and mixes that pump you up while in the heat of battle. for more information go to their web site under audio and listen to them! Unreal Tournament 3I give audio a 10 out of 10

Gameplay – fast as the last with some obvious tweaks if you have played it at all. Most of the guns seemingly do more damage then they have in the past leaving you to be in a much quicker fire fight, a direct missile to the face and your good as gone. the gravity has been adjusted as well, no more crazy insane jumps, the double jump is still in the game but frankly its not going to save you. With the gameplay changes you should be able to see a noticeable faster gameplay style emerging. In the CTF arena all players have the use of what’s called a hover board giving them all access to a faster mode of transport … nice especially if you’ve just stolen the flag. This is counterbalanced by the fact that it’s easier to die as previously stated.
9 out of 10

Overview – All in all I think this is going to be another great game and one of the finest that we will see this year (and that’s saying a lot with all the good titles coming out in November) but take it from me if your system is pretty old you shouldn’t consider this game in your ball park, download the demo test drive it then see what your going to be capable of, cause it is that graphically intense! 9.5 out of 10
