“Nightfire” being remade in Source Engine

2002′s James Bond 007: Nightfire, while not as popular or highly regarded as Goldeneye, was something of a cult favourite due to the extremely fun split-screen multiplayer. Therefore, fans of the game will be pleased to know that there is a fan-made remake in the works. Called Nightfire: Source, the remake will implement the original game into the Source Engine.

The game in its current state is available for download, although not in some regions (including the UK apparently).

Sid Meier’s Civilization V: Brave New World Review

When Civ V was first released, I was deeply unimpressed. I hated (and
still dislike and find pointless), the hex grid. I hated the
non-stackable units. I hated the lack of religion and espionage. Really,
there was almost nothing that I DID like about it, and it wasn’t long
before I wrote it off as totally broken and started playing Civ IV

Time passed, and the first expansion was released. That
changed the game significantly, and suddenly made it actually playable.
That trend towards being a good game continues with this expansion
which, I am pleased to say, has finally “fixed” the game to the point
where I no longer consider it broken and instead consider it to be very
good. Good enough that I might finally leave Civ IV behind.

expansion adds, as you’d expect, plenty of new Civs. You get the return
of the Zulus, whose omission came as a Shaka to everyone (I’m
sorry…I’m so, so sorry…). You also get completely new Civs, like
Brazil, Poland, Inodnesia and Morocco. You even get Venice, which you
play as only one city. That makes for an interesting experience.

expansion also adds trade routes. Now you can build caravans and cargo
ships, and actually engage in basic commerce with your neighbors. The
mechanics are a little more choppy than I’d like, and I hate having to
constantly select new routes, but it’s still nice to have them.

also get a few new religions, and Christianity has become nice and
factionalized, though I’m confused as to why we only have one sect of
Islam to pick from. There’s also some new techs, like archaeology, and
new units, like the archaeologist.

Probably the biggest change in
the game mechanics is the World Council. It’s a group similar to the UN
that’s automatically unlocked by the first Civ to make contact with
every other Civ in the game. That first Civ also gets to control it, at
least initially. The way it works is that you propose an idea, and then
about 90 turns later (this interval decreases as game time goes on),
everyone votes. You can even use diplomacy to persuade your neighbors to
vote the way you want them to.

For example, while playing
Brazil, I unlocked and controlled the council. I suggested a World’s
Fair. I then persuaded my ally, Austria, to vote in favor of the idea.
They did, and eventually the idea was accepted. Everyone began
developing their Civs for the fair. The civilization who completed it,
me, then gets 100% extra culture for 20 turns. Not too shabby, and well
worth it.

So diplomacy is a major aspect of the game now. You
also get tourists, which help to spread your culture far and wide. Then
there’s the various ideologies that you can unlock. I haven’t done that
yet, so I can’t comment on them, but I am looking very forward to it.

sum up. This is a great expansion. If you like the base game even
slightly, you owe it to yourself to try the expansion. It’s very, very
good. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go invade Rome.

TrackMania 2 Valley Review and System Requirements

I have never played a track mania game before, however after seeing it on steam on sale, I decided to take the plunge, what i was rewarded with is one of pure fun racing games I have ever played, its just a pure joy playing online with others competitively, I haven’t played the same track twice the shear wealth of content is staggering. The driving is solid and enjoyable, yet the content creation is what is keeping me from getting any sleep, 4 hours later and I had created my own ludicrously detailed track overall a very fun and enjoyable arcade racer, with a lot of replay value for a low price, comes highly recomened.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 Will Support Havok For Realistic Physics

Havok today announced that it is working with Konami Digital to provide advanced physics, animation and cloth simulation technologies to deliver a true-to-life and graphically advanced soccer experience for all the players of Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) 2014, the highly-anticipated new entry in the 82.3-million-selling soccer franchise.

Arnaud Saint-Martin, Asia Regional Director at Havok said:

“Player movements and physics are key components of a lively game, so it’s a true honor for Havok to power these elements in Konami’s incredible PES 2014. The Pro Evolution Soccer team has been dedicated to pushing the boundaries of what is possible in a football game, and in these years, Havok has worked with this talented team to integrate Havok’s technology to help take the realism of PES even further. We think football fans will appreciate how Havok technology will blur the line between the sport and simulation, and provide a football experience that looks as real as can be.”

Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City (2010)

This game may not have the best graphics or sounds but it is the content that is more important than anything. The content seems to be something that would interest somebody for a while, or at least keep them busy for a while. If you are looking for good graphics then don’t purchase this game, otherwise this is a nice game to spend some time on or just something to release some stress..
