PC Games / Seed - A very interesting MMO
« on: January 29, 2006, 10:41:01 am »
Steve talked in (I think) his last episode about how sci-fi MMO's needed to be completely different from fantasy MMO's. Though I didn't agree with all his points, I have found a sci-fi MMO that is completely different than any other MMO out there.

Well, I read about it a few hours ago in the game magazine that droped in the mail this morning.

This is a very unconventional MMO. It's not so much about killing monsters or lvling to do some instance for uber lewt. From what I understand, It's about surviving on a planet. Not only as an individual character, but as the human race!

Somewhere in the future, man on earth build spaceships to colonize the moon. After succesfully doing so, they decide to launch several colonization projects to distant stars. After 250 years of traveling, one of the colonisation ships lands on a plannet called DaVinci. After landing, the terraform robots begin constructing a huge terraformation tower. It is planned, that once the planet is habitable, the incubators grow the first humans to establish a society. Everything looked gret untill after 500 years of terraforming, an rain of astoids hit the planet and demaged the tower and TAU (Terraforming asistance unit, the main computer). It started rapidly producing humans on a planet not ready for them. 1000 years after leaving earth, the population has grown to over 400.000 people. The tower is demaged, the computer is still producing humas at a fast rate, there are hardly enough recources for the current population, let alone any more.

It's up to society to decide what to do.
Do you
- repair the tower and continue terraforming
- alter human genetics so you can live on the hostile planet
- contact earth and ask for help (was origenally planned to be done once terraformed)
- leave the planet and search for a better location
- contact any of the other spaceships set out to terraform other planets
- probably some more, but this is waht I could think of right now.

Oh yeah, and the game is completely cell shaded (well, not true cell shading, but something like it).

To be released April 2006

I can't wait for Faces of War. I've played SHOWW2 more than any other game (Except RA2 and some MMO's). It looks freaking awesome and the new features sound very prommising! Can't wait for it!

Oh, and that other game, Company of Heroes is jsut a stupid SHOWW2/FoC rip off :-\

I'm also quite excited about Empire at war. The dema was awesome!

Portable Games / GP2X - Competition for the PSP?
« on: October 12, 2005, 04:27:20 am »

To sum up the GP2X:

It can play games. It can play your Movies. It can play your music. It can view photos. It can read Ebooks. It runs on just 2 AA batteries - And it can do all this in the palm of your hand or on your TV screen.

Yes that's right, this handheld can connect to the TV, console style. Watch your DivX movies on the TV. Play emulated classics on the TV. Try big screen Quake. Or just play them all on the GP2X's large 320*240 backlit screen. You get the best of both worlds.

It runs the free Linux operating system. This means a whole world of Games, Utilities and Emulators are at your disposal. Quake, Doom, SNES, Megadrive, MAME, Media players and Applications to name just a few.

It's powerful - Two 200mhz CPU's with 64meg of RAM, custom graphics hardware and decoding chips. Takes SD cards and has 64M of NAND memory. Plenty to play with. One of the most powerful and advanced handhelds today.

That means it can play movies without any re-encoding. Just put them onto an SD card. Any size. Any resolution. No messing about. The GP2X scaling chip will resize to fit the screen. No other handheld can do that.

It's cheap. Just 124.99.

It's open. You want to develop your own games for the GP2X? Go right ahead. The SDK is included with the system free. Not since the days of the Amiga has a system been so easy to develop for, commercially and for fun.

The GP2X isn't just another wannabe be Gameboy. Its a whole different design. A whole new idea for a handheld games system.

But wait, we're not new to the scene. Heard of the GP32? An accidental experiment in an open source handheld that went right. Some 30,000 units were sold worldwide, mostly in the UK and parts of Europe. The machine has an astonishing following. The GP2X is the successor.

We hope you will enjoy it.

Seems interesting to me. In hardware terms, it looks bettter than the PSP, and it's open source!

A dual 200 MHz precessor and 64mb ram! :o

I'm actually considering to buy this thing instead of a new videocard...
