Pre-E3 2006: Crysis - Storytelling for A New Generation
game: Crysis
preview | 05/05/06 | Chris Martin
"What makes a game, Mr. Yerli? Is it having the best graphics, no matter the cost? Is that what makes a game?..." (Kudos if you know the homage). Even though Crysis, CryTek's newest project for the PC, has graphics that will drop your jaw, CryTek CEO Cevat Yerli has made it clear that they have no intentions of letting it become another FarCry: Instincts. Just like Half-Life became famous partly for its in-game use of storytelling, Crysis hopes to stand out for more than just its great graphics and gameplay. CryTek hopes to shed the image of producing video games with B-Movie storylines; they're aiming to offer next generation storytelling for a new generation of gaming.

game: Shadowgrounds
review | 05/04/06 | George Holomshek
Shadowgrounds is an independently developed European title that comes to North America thanks to Meridian 4, who has also recently announced that Shadowgrounds will be carried on Valve's popular Steam service. Featuring frantic top-down shooter action with excellent lighting and plenty of weapons upgrades, Shadowgrounds isn't a complicated game, it's just fun. Check out George's review for the full story.

Pre-E3 Bethesda Softworks Round-Up
preview | 05/02/06 | Matt James
Bethesda Softworks has a verified hit on their hands with Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. So the natural question we have for the company is, "What's next?" Not much is known so far about future Oblivion updates and expansions, although we expect to see some of that at E3, too. So far Bethesda has announced they will show off a new Pirates of the Caribbean title (to coincide with the movie) and two new Star Trek titles (one for PC/XB360 and the other for PSP/DS). Matt James rounds up the details we know so far, and we've got some Trek screens.

Pre-E3: Lost Planet Preview
game: Lost Planet
preview | 05/01/06 | Chris Martin
E3 is on the horizon, and we're all aching to see what is coming down the road for the future of gaming. Right now the inventive minds behind Onimusha and Devil May Cry are working hard on Lost Planet for the Xbox 360. Large robots played a role in the launch of the original Xbox with MechAssualt, and now Capcom hopes to use big robots again to push the Xbox 360 firmly into the next generation of gaming. With seamless environments and a mix of gameplay styles (in-Mech and on foot), Lost Planet might be just the thing to keep the Xbox 360 fresh and selling strong come December. Though it's a ways off, we're still eager to play some of this incredible looking actioneer. Read why inside!

UberSoldier! Review
game: UberSoldier
review | 05/01/06 | Tristan Mayshark
If the slow pacing of FPS titles like Half-Life 2 and Doom 3 put you off, UberSoldier might be able to offer a more mindless and action oriented experience at a budget price. Some players will think it's a wonderful excursion from the tedious, and some players will quite reasonably hate it. For the former group, this zombie-filled WWII shooter is worth the $29 that you'll put down at your local video game store. It embodies old-school first person shooting, executing the genre tried-and-true without all that complicated crap like an interesting plot.

Meridian4 sends word of another great announcement regarding Valve's Steam service: Shadowgrounds will be carried on the Steam service beginning in May. Steam users will be able to purchase and download the game via their Steam client, and Meridian4 hopes this will expose Shadow Grounds to a whole new audience. The announcement also bolsters Steam's position as a major hitmaker, having already picked up several hugely popular indy creations including Darwinia and Garry's Mod.

In Search of a Cure for Vampirism in Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
game: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
how-to | 04/18/06 | Chris Martin
Oblivion is one of the first games to really be a system seller for the Xbox 360 (that is, if you can find a 360). One of the quirks of the game is the ability to contract diseases - more specifically, you can contract Vampirism. The quest for a cure is one of the longest and most complicated of Oblivion, and also one of the most interesting. You'll find yourself weighing the trade-off between huge stat-bounces and the ability to withstand sunlight and quick-travel between towns. If you're a little confused about what Vampirism does for you, does against you, and how to cure it, Chris Martin's guide to curing vampirism is for you.

Oblivion's Missing Physics
game: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
feature | 04/16/06 | Aaron Stanton
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion has consistently been impressing reviewers and gamers alike. The expansive world and do-anything style of gameplay is quickly coming to define what consumers think of as next generation. However, even with its beautiful lighting effects and never-ending storyline, Oblivion's environments serve as a perfect example of why physics will be what really defines next generation gaming, not still visuals. It is a splendidly beautiful world that still requires a blind eye in order to believe the environment. Be sure to read the full article.

XViD 360
news | 04/13/06 | Tristan Mayshark
If you have a PC running Windows Media Center Edition and an XBox 360, you already have access to a slick UI that you can use to stream media to your 360. Unfortunately, Microsoft severely limited what video codecs are supported out of box to Windows Medio Video and ASF. Fans of alternative formats like Xvid and DivX were simply out of luck. Thankfully, the people that brought us the Xbox Media Center have come to our rescue with a free download that lets you play a wide variety of formats on your Xbox 360. Take a look to see how it works.

Daemonica Review
game: Daemonica
review | 04/11/06 | Blaine Krumpe
Meridian 4 has brought us another indy European import that might not be quite up to next-gen graphical standards, but features a great story full of horrific twists. Daemonica is a compelling RPG set in a 14th Century European town having a little trouble keeping the life and the afterlife completely separate. (We have the same problem with Oblivion.) The action is light, but the price is right, and the narrative was enough to impress our guy, Blaine. Check out his review here.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion PC Review
game: The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
review | 04/09/06 | Sean Hilliard
Ahhh, sweet Oblivion. Few games are so appropriately titled. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is everything a gamer could ask for and more. Check out Sean's review of the PC version if you needed another excuse for buying this phenomenal game. If you already have it and are still gonzo for Tamriel, read it to fuel your crack-like addiction while at work or "taking care" of the kids.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Review
game: The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
review | 04/08/06 | Chris Martin
Bethesda's Morrowind was a major RPG for PC and Xbox. So it's no surprise that the follow-up, Oblivion, has been one of the most highly anticipated titles of the year. After a few months' delay, gamers have blissfully entered into Oblivion, in more than one way, and so far the game has shot to the top of the charts. Get the full story on Oblivion from Chris Martin's review, right here.

Next Oblivion Mod Will Be Full Quest; Cheaper Than Current Horse Armor Mod
game: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
news | 04/07/06 | Aaron Stanton
A post from Bethesda Softworks in the official Oblivion forums indicates that not only will the next downloadable mod for Elder Scrolls IV be a full quest, it will also be less expensive than the Horse Armor modification currently available. A quest called The Orrery is expected to be available within the next week, and will include a new location (the Imperial Orrery in the Arcane University), new rewards, and new powers that are based on the phases of the moon. The better content for the price will hopefully help lessen player concerns that Bethesda intends to offer minor modifications at high prices. Unlike individual items, a quest is something that might be worth paying for. Hopefully.
