Choose Your Own Adventure
XIII Shots: The initial art they showed for this game really caught my eye, as it looked as though we might be seeing a game that was not only cel-shaded, but also rendered in crisp black and white. New information reveals that flashbacks will use that approach, but the main body of the game will be presented in full color and also rooka so nice. Damn, those Battlefield 1942 shots ain’t bad, neither.
3D Display Thing: Pardon me, but Jesus Christ. Maybe everybody else knew that we could pull this kind of shit off, but I don’t really follow the, you know, 3D Display scene or whatever. I have a sneaking suspicion they brought it back in a time machine.
Super Mario Bros. 2 at Overclocked Remix: Let it be known that DJ Pretzel is a saint for what he does, running a veritable funkatorium for wayward Gaming beats. Estradasphere‘s latest jam - this SMB2 thing - is a compulsory download.
Natural Selection Mod for HL: It’s like these assholes have some weird machine inside my brain that tells them what I want. I’ve talked about how a Command & Conquer: Renegade with just as much conquering but more commanding would bind me into servitude. Well, no need to wait for some jackhole to authorize innovation. Natural Selection is congealing my gaming fantasies.
Team Aerial Combat 2: I was overjoyed to find that this project is still in development, and reinstalled Tribes 2 expressly to play it. It looks like a new release may be out shortly, and if I had a bit to chomp at I would be chomping at it right now.
WSBN Tonight!: Their own DwarfVader asked us to be on the show as well, but seeing as we haven’t played Tribes for months and months, we probably aren’t the best people to have on a program entitled “The Future of the Community.” It’s going to be a great show, if this list of participants is correct - it goes down tonight, April 12th, at 9:30 pm EST on Server 1. I’m going to be getting my LAN Party on over at the Ministry Of Peace around that time - Upstairs Crew 4 life - so I’ll have to catch it in the archive.
