Yep. The game i was talking about a few days earlier regarding ingame innovations, just got a preview by good guys at gametrailers.com. It looks good, it looks dark, and it got some nice demonic arms to feed. Check out the trailer and expect it’s release in late June 07.

Nah belea. Sony nu mai are ce sa faca, si intra in rand cu lumea. Cu alte cuvinte, si-a tras Blog. Il puteti gasi aici. Ma distreaza ca pe blog se lauda de cum stau la partea de Folding (si nu e un lucru rau deloc). Aveti mai jos si un screenshot comparativ. Ah, si inca ceva. Probabil multi se intreaba ce Dzeu se intampla, de postez ba in engleza, ba in romana. Well, e simplu. That’s how my mind works. Part english, part romanian. Asa ca, daca nu va place, nu va pot opri sa schimbati canalul… Pana una alta, have a nice day !

Trying to add a new poll for the website, i just found some “old” wallpaper i’ve created, called Black Vs White. It’s actually a two “teams” war. PS2+PS3 vs Wii+X360. I love black, and those white consoles are ruining my hifi table… but, tha’ts life. You got to have some contrast to see what you really like. But i’m happy, as Xbox360 Elite will be soon released for Europe also… so my Black collection will be almost complete… Muuuust haaaaave blaaaaaaack Wiiiiiiiiii !?!@#?

And we are not talking about a new Prince Of Persia. Oh no. We are talking about the original Prince Of Persia, who ruined our social life when we were kids, making us dream about beeing some persian hero, trying to save our beloved princess. Old times… Now, on Xbox Live (Xbox 360 only, sorry guys), you can replay the old memories. This time the remake is enhanced, it’s looking 3d’ish, although it really isn’t. Check out some ingame videos.

I got mad. Really mad. I just had to get my third Xbox 360. I got it replaced under warranty without problems (except losing all my saves, my downloads, themes, trailers, demos, etc… plus losing a lot of time to get to/from the store 4 times). But i got tired. And mad, as i’ve just said. I’ve paid a little fortune for my Xbox360, and all i got was 3 rings of death. I’ve invested a lot of money and time to get original games, to get accesories, to pay monthly for Xbox Live Gold, and all i got was brokend consoles, sooner or later. My Playstation 2 is arround 10 years old, never crashed… my Xbox almost 5 years, never crashed… my older consoles (well, some are even older than i am) also. What’s wrong with Microsoft, not beeing able to fix their hardware inside Xbox 360, or at least improve the cooling ? I don’t know, but this time i’ve decided to do something. Nooo, not protesting, but doing some fixes to the console. For the start, fixing the GPU with some epoxy mixture that can ressist upto 300 degrees celsius. The fix it’s suppose to not allow the GPU to unsolder from the motherboard (because of too higher temperature and weak soldering). Well, thank you Microsoft for the games, and Live. But No Thanks for the hardware we have to fix for ourselves !

We had our fun with Dead or Alive – The Movie, made after Dead Or Alive – The Game… and now, we go on backwards, with Transformers – The Game made after, obviously, Transformers – The Movie. Hmm… not that clever, hugh ? But after all, it’s the francise that counts, and the Box Offices too. So, here it is, some interview and ingame movie. Enjoy !

Well, i just got hit by a new trailer for Call of Duty 4. What can i say ? Although i am tired of so many shooters, wargames, i never cease to be amased by the speed of graphics engine evolution. It only gets better and better. Beside the realism, these guys should start thinking more about a player feelings, what he actually wants inside a game, beside killing everyone. While the days goes by and i feel older, i am starting to look more and more to innovations, cool ideeas, feelings that a good game story makes the player involve. But don’t forget, most of the players out there, love CounterStrike, so… no comment. Enjoy the trailer:

Dupa update-ul de firmware v1.80, toti am asteptat o revelatie la upscale-ul prin care iubitul nostru Cell ar putea face miracole. IGN a fost primul site pe care am putut gasi comparatii decente, si foarte bine comentate. Puteti vedea tot articolul aici, sau click Read More pt. galeria completa. Parerea mea personala este ca se putea mai mult. Adica, eu unul nu inteleg de ce Sony a optat pt. upscale bilinear, cand ar fi putut opta pentru anisotropic + antialiasing serios. Nu pot decat sa ma gandesc ca au avut in vedere chipul hardware din versiunele NTSC, emulatorul software din variantele PAL fiind probabil mult mai maleabil. Well, asteptam mai multe Sony. Stim ca se poate 🙂

Well, dupa “succesul” lui Intercooler si dupa dezastruoasele efecte ale sale (alimentarea lui Intercooler fiind trasa din portul de alimentare al lui X360, cea a lui XFan fiind dintr-un port USB), iata ca a mai aparut un pretendent. Sincer, e o solutie bunicica doar pentru cei care chiar nu vor sa-si desfaca cu propriile manute consola si sa foloseasca fix-ul cu rasina epoxidica. Pagina oficiala o puteti gasi aici. Pt. cei care cauta o solutie mai fiabila (poate chiar permanenta), verificati acest thread. Read more pt. mai multe date despre XFan.

Oh yes, the fight still goes on. This time, with a nice and naughty videoclip, that explains it all. Honestly, it’s very well put. What do you prefer ? The future, or something fun ? I want them both. Plus a 360, and PS2 and Xbox just to be sure… and let’s not forget a few Snes, Gamecube and Sega consoles… Yep, console maniac forever ! Now, just enjoy the movie 🙂

Hahahaha. PS3 are acum propriul sau cantecel. “Sony you went wrong / With your PS3 / I’ll just keep playing / My 360…”. Si da, se pare ca este batut la vanzari de Wii, X360, jocurile apar firav sau deloc, exclusivitatile se duc de rapa, Kutaragi mai ca nu pleaca la Nintendo… Poate doar BluRay sa-l mai salveze, si cele cateva titluri mult asteptate… Amen.

Se pare ca a inceput cu adevarat razboiul next-gen. Ah, nu va speriati, e un razboi “virtual”, in bits and bytes. Si din fericire, este un razboi in engine-uri, in grafica, in design, gameplay. Lucruri care pt. un gamer nu poate insemna decat un mod de a se relaxa mai placut. De data aceasta, cei de la PSU au facut o comparatie screen by screen intre engine-ul lui Haze si al lui Crysis. Va las pe voi sa decideti care arata mai bine. Read more pt. mai multe screenshot-uri.

Nu stiu daca ati prins acest post, insa EA s-a tinut de cuvant, si pe data de 31.05.07 au dezvaluit mai multe detalii despre noul Need For Speed. Well, acum nu se mai numeste NFS: Damage ci NFS: ProStreet. Hmm, numele nu-mi spune prea multe, insa trailerul arata foarte ok. Prezentarea a fost insa destul de generala, vorbindu-se despre masini full customizabile, twek and tune specific seriei precedente. Insa cel mai mult s-a vorbit despre damage system, practic in Pro Street orice zgarietura, indoitura devine o “rana de razboi”. Deasemenea s-a mai vorbit despre un mod revolutionar de gameplay online, insa nimic foarte concret. Well, ramane sa vedem in Noiembrie 2007, daca merita sau nu asteptarea.

Oh yes. Tocmai ce a inceput razboiul in jocurile auto related (Forza Motorsport 2, Colin McRae Dirt, Need For Speed Damage, Burnout 5, MotoGP 07) si deja avem picanterii legate de Gran Turismo 4 HD si Gran Turismo 5. Car Damage, Dynamic Weather, 750 masini cel putin, 4 vederi de driving (inclusiv din masina, cu designul real al masinii). Pe scurt, bestial. Read more for full list of Polyphony goodies:
