game: Blitzkrieg 2
review | 10/25/05 | Blaine Krumpe
CDV's Blitzkrieg 2 is a hardcore grognard's dream: RTS gameplay simulations of famous WWII battles. Playing as either an American, Russian or German commander, you make the decisions about where and how to deploy your land, air or sea ordinance. The 3D graphics engine makes for some pretty explosions, and the rag doll physics makes the battle truly brutal. Visceral and complex, Blitzkrieg 2 is a must-play for any WWII buffs or RTS fans.
game: Stubbs the Zombie: Rebel Without a Pulse
review | 10/24/05 | Shawn Rider
Aspyr is not one of the biggest publishers, but with some solid games under their belt (Lego Star Wars was a groundbreaking title), they've put out some great experiences. The highly anticipated Stubbs the Zombie: Rebel Without a Pulse is an incredible effort. Built on the Halo engine, Stubbs the Zombie features some rock-solid gameplay that is good, wholesome, gory fun for zombie fans. Help Stubbs assemble his shuffling army of the undead and take over the small hamlet of Punchbowl, PA. Check out our full review here.
game: GTR: FIA Racing
review | 10/23/05 | Chris Martin
Hardcore racing sim fans take note: GTR: FIA Racing is an out-of-left-field contender for the racing sim hall of fame. Built on real data from the FIA racing circuit, GTR: FIA Racing features tense simulations with some of the best opponent driver AI we've ever seen in any racing title. It doesn't have the catalog of vehicles or the over-the-top graphics beauty of a Gran Turismo or Project Gotham, but this one has plenty of get up and go.

Kuma War is bringing Saddam's trial to virtual life. Just released is the first in a series of episodes featuring the events of Saddam Hussein's life which are under scrutiny in his trials. The first episode corresponds to the current trial, and is called "The Crime of Dujail: Saddam's Revenge."

Kuma War's recreation focuses on the motorcade ambush as players try to assassinate the dictator.

game: Mojo Master
news | 10/19/05 | Shawn Rider
Wild Tangent and Axe, two companies that make us feel kind of oogey on the inside, have teamed up on a dating sim for dudes. Mojo Master puts you into a 3D world full of hotties to hook up. It's a combination of traditional conversation-based gameplay mixed with a card game approach to abilities. Make the right moves and play the right cards and you collect those digits. And with the addition of multiplayer "Playa vs. Playa" modes, the new version of Mojo Master (due October 31) could achieve new levels of sausage party shenanigans.

game: World of Warcraft
editorial | 10/15/05 | Aaron Stanton
A recent posting on RootKit.com suggests that Blizzard installs software that watches the personal information of people playing their game. The software is designed to hunt for cheat-ware, but reads the title headings of any window open, regardless of its relation to WoW. The poster reports that he, "watched the Warden sniff down the email addresses of people I was communicating with on MSN, (and) the URL of several websites that I had open at the time." Don't like that? Too bad. Considering that it's part of Blizzard's anti-hacking measures, it might be considered illegal for you to turn it off, or even try to. At what point do we consider this a problem?

game: Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
preview | 10/06/05 | Aaron Stanton
Sometimes it takes a movie to turn a good idea into a game. The fantasy setting of The Chronicles of Narnia is an ideal world for the basis of a video game, containing monsters, heroes, and mystical creatures. Even separated from its religious basis, the story behind the classic children's tales offers everything a game designer could hope for to create a rich, living environment. In November, developer Traveler's Tales will be releasing a video game based on the upcoming movie adaptation of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and GamesFirst! has had an opportunity to play through a preview build of the title. What we found is a game worth looking forward to. Check out our preview.
