Tribes 2 Gameplay

I decided to fire up Tribes 2 for the first time in a while. Was glad to see there are still a good amount of players and servers. I recorded a full round for no particular reason. I really cannot wait for Tribes: Ascend.

Tribes 2 is free to play, see: http://neutralx2.com/2009/01/23/tribes-next



Battlefield 3 Beta “Caspian Border” Gameplay

While Operation Metro is the only “official” map available in the Battlefield 3 beta, there are a few servers running the 64-player Caspian Border map. Yes, that’s the one from the trailer, complete with jets and tanks. Unfortunately, all of the servers are password-protected with constantly changing passwords. I was able to jump on to one of the servers for a few rounds. It is a bit difficult to play and record at the same time due to the low framerate, but I still managed to record some decent footage. Hopefully they will open this map up for everyone soon. While Operation Metro is fun, it lacks the scale and vehicles that really define a Battlefield map.

Battlefield 3 is currently in open beta, and is set to release on 10/25/2011



11 Minutes of Aliens: Colonial Marines

The gameplay presentation below was shown behind closed doors at E3 this year, but it was just released to the public on SEGA’s blog. The video is narrated by Randy Pitchford, CEO and president of Gearbox Software (Brothers in Arms, Borderlands), although I wish he wouldn’t. I have to say it looks good, and it almost makes me want to go back and finish playing Aliens vs. Predator… almost. Lets hope they do a much better job then Rebellion did with that game.



Max Payne 3 Trailer

Rockstar has finally released a trailer for Max Payne 3 and it looks… different. Elements of the first two games are there but it looks like a lot of what made Max Payne great, such as the film noir style and comic book narrative sequences, is missing. Still, it looks like it will be a fun game on its own, just not a very good Max Payne game.



Rage’s Modest System Requirements

id Software released the system requirements for their amazing looking shooter Rage. The technology behind that game really is incredible if it can make amazing looking graphics on systems like this:

Minimum:

  • OS: Win XP SP3, Vista, Win 7
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo or Equivalent AMD
  • Memory: 2GB
  • Hard Disk Space: 25GB
  • Video Card: GeForce 8800, Radeon HD 4200

Recommended:

  • OS: Win XP SP3, Vista, Win 7
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad or Equivalent AMD
  • Memory: 4GB
  • Hard Disk Space: 25GB
  • Video Card: GeForce 9800 GTX, ATI Radeon HD 5550

Looks like the only game I have to worry about running this year is Battlefield 3. Unlike Battlefield, Rage will use Steamworks to support Achievements, VOIP, and friends lists on the PC.
