Sins of the Solar Empire

Its long time since appeared last cool space game. Yea, this one looks really good, Sins of the Solar Empire will be realtime strategy. And whats up in strategy? We will choose one of sides (3) which of course have different weapons, units, strategy.. And than go to conquer all universe. During campaign we will take many different planets, colonize them, build there bases, orbital defences etc.. All planets will bring different bonuses, probably based on its size and type (Something like Master of Orion maybe?) And for those who dont like single player it will be multiplayer supporting up to 10 players. Game should be released this year.

Some news

At E3 was oficially prized game named Spore as best game expected. Its nice, but it was same last year, and game still isnt ready. Will it be same next year? Lets wait.

Microsoft ended all support for Windows ME and 98.

Scientists tried to cover DVD by protein called Halobacterium salinarum, it should drastically increase its capacity. There are still some problems with it, b ut it seems that normal DVD should contain 50 terabytes of data.. (Really nice space. I think that nobody have drive so big, to burn such data at once.. Maybe it can be used to backup whole servers..)

Microsoft is still ignoring orders from European Union to give source codes and specifikations of all their software to another software developers, so they can do their work better. By EU is that really bad, and Microsoft should pay penalty of 280 milions of Euro. Lets hope that somebody will really force MS to paly fair game.

WWII Battle Tanks: T-34 vs Tiger

Under this long name is hidden game currently prepared by G5 Software. As name says, it will be about tank battles. In WWII, 1944 we will enjoy big part of russian campaign, and of course from both sides. For russians we will command T-34, and for germans it will be their famous Tiger. By creators game will be really realistic, tanks should have same behaviour as real ones. Of course there will be also realistic damage to tanks, buildings etc.. Explosions, smoke.. And all landscape will be based on photographies from real WWII. Game should be released during first months of 2007, at least in Russia, where it should be distributed by IDDk. But when it will be available worldwide, nad who will take care about it? Thats unknown.

Intel build new fabric

In Liexlip in Ireland build Intel thier new factory, third one which will produce chips by 65 nm proces. Factory will work on 300 mm silicon waffers, which should guarantee its extra fast and extremly cheap production. By news intel paid 2 bilions of dollars for that factory. Really high sum of money eh? Suppose that cost of manuifacturing there will be compensated by trying to get back price of factory, and processors prices wont go down. BTW: Intel want to work on 45nm process during year 2007, but i cant find information if this new factory is capable to produce also this.
