Guild Wars:Factions

MMORPGs (Massive Multiplayer Online RPG) are still more and more popular. And between them is gaining popularity one called Guild Wars, which (probably due to alck of monthly fee) is main competitor to Phenomenal World of Warcraft. Now is being prepared datadisk for it, and probably good is, that to play it you wont need original game. LEts look closer at it. It should contain Observer mode, which will allow you to look at other players in action. (Nice, that mean if you found wonderfull way how to earn big money and cause of them be king with best equip, any looser who will watch you can steal you your wonder. it will probably bring advance to bad players, and those good who think will loose.) There will be new continent, Cantha. That is good, every new location is allways good. And two new characters, Assasin (used to assasinate directly face to face) and Ritualist (probably calling out demons, who will kill his victim from long range, sounds very good.)

Some screens from Mark of Chaos

Mark OF Chaos is continuation of known Dawn Of war strategy. So its from world of Warhammer, and main story is about those who are good, and those bad. Said another way: You are the only good, kill everything, that is chant of empire champions. They are chosen champions of human race, they know well how to protect others from heresy, weakness and bad thoughts. (Best way how to clean bad thinking out of head is to cut head off, best way how to get rid of pain from being ruptured by chaos, is to kill that poor mutant mercifully and fast. Those are methods of imperial knights, champions of good.) But there should be many more armies, and all of them playable, so you can even try to lead chaos horde to victory over empire. Those pictures looks really great, just hope you wont need to buy new computer to run game properly.

(Not talked about better artificial inteligence, authors dont speak about it, but its probable)

How will looks new games?

Good question, but i think that we have enough experiences to answer. In last 10 years (yes, its only ten years) we advanced from games in vga to games in resolution 1600*1200. From 2d handpainted graphics (or pre rendered 3d, those computers didnot have enough power to compute 3d space in real time) to graphics 3d, still more and more photo realistic. (Not go far.. pictures from Conan few posts down, that dorrest looks wonderfull, and sure in coming years that engine will be outperformed by another one.) so we can expect games looking wonderfull, but needing more and more powerfull pcs (or consoles). But really bad seems me that some types of games disappeared. Todays child dont know anything about handpainted adventures, flyer simulators who didnot contained perfect physical details, but were playable. I tried to find for you pictures from shanarra, one of best looking adventures ever. But its not to be found. Sorry, those pictures were wonderfull.

Creators of racing game GTR (SimBin) are now working on its next part called originally GTR 2. They said we should wait for new graphics, excelent physical modell, weather influencing all and realistic damage system (not talking about supposed many hours of fun). Just hope they know what are talking about.

Medal of Honor: Airborne.

Probably for many people is good to hear of preparing new game from serie Medal of Honor. It will bear name Medal of Honor: Airborne, and its about Boyd Travers, who will perform parachute drop behind enemy lines under your control. How many missions it will contain is not known, but probably many. We all can hope game will be ready within this winter, so lets wait for it.

Heroes of Might and Magic 5

a, they are described Heroes of Might and Magic V, in roman numbers, but to me seems normal 5 better. They seems to be continuation of previous parts without any experiments in game principles. Only graphics should be better, and also spell effects. Lets hope we can play it soon, i must admit love those.

Age of Conan

Game Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures should contain new technology, creating in real time some effects on trees, rocks etc.. which than should look like in real nature. just look, there are some pictures from it: (i resize them to reasonable resolution, they were brutally big..) Also problem is, that for running such game you will probably need new computer.

Vivisector:Beast inside is game inspired by novell called Island of doctor Moreau and it seems really be strange, as i could say, because there is demoversion of that game appeared on web dew days ago. I think that this will be strange game for strange people.

Some game news

Nintendo sayi that they already sold over 5 milions of Nintendo DS in Japan.

Second message is also from Nintedno, it seems that their new device called Revolution is now going to be massively manufactured, but on market shouldnt appear until May.

It seems that Dungeon Siege II will have datadisk, but nothing more known.

France maybe will legalise sharing and downloading throught peer to peer networks. Of course, Producents of music and movies arent happy from that.
