The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - An Interview with Bethesda Softworks
game: The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - An Interview with Bethesda Softworks
preview | 03/09/05 | Chris Martin
Elder Scrolls III was one of the most expansive and impressive games every to hit the Xbox or PC, or any game system, for that matter. With a gigantic world, almost never-ending gameplay, and a game dynamic that changed depending on what type of character you had, it set a new standard for game design. Its sequel, appearing on the PC and Xbox NEXT, looks to make Elder Scrolls III appear about as wide open as your bedroom closet, offering an even larger map, more complicated non-player characters, individual faces for each NPC, and a whole host of other improvements. Plus, it\'s going to be one of the most breathtaking experiences you\'ve ever had on a game console; it looks awesome. Our man Chris has a chance to sit down with Bethesda Softworks\' producer Gavin Carter to ask a few questions about the upcoming game. The answers left us awe-inspired.

Video Game Theory: The Videogame to Movie Craze: A trend that has to end?
Articles Archive | 03/05/05 | Chris Martin
Using many of the same storytelling conventions as the movie industry, it's not surprising that game plots have been turning up on film pretty consistently these days; few, as of yet, are really any good. What makes it so hard to turn a good game into a good movie? Is one medium really incompatible with the other? Chris doesn't think so, and he explains his views in this excellent and informed perspective of game-to-movie adaptations. If you don't want to lose faith in the movie industry's ability to make competent movies out of what should be excellent source material, this is an article you need to read before catching films like Alone in the Dark.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
game: Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
review | 02/24/05 |
Knights of the Old Republic II finds itself in the difficult position of trying to improve on one of the best games in recent years. The result is a game built on tried and true game dynamics, a darker emphasis than the original, and a new story that takes you from Star Wars planet to Star Wars planet, but doesn't break ground and drops you at the end. A blast to play, but missing a little bit of that special magic that was captured in the first, KotoRII might not rock your world. David has the inside scoop.

Second Sight
game: Second Sight
review | 02/23/05 | Chris Martin
It seems like a fundamental rule of thumb in video games: coma = amnesia and psychic powers. Few games execute the mystery and atmosphere of such creepy going-ons, though, as well as Free Radical's budget title Second Sight. It's atmospheric and story driven, and worth your money if you're looking for a game that will keep your interest. Read the full review to find out the details.

P2P For the Gaming Industry
Articles Archive | 02/18/05 |
Since P2P has become ubiquitous on the Internet, it has mostly been associated with game, movie and music piracy, which has somewhat prevented P2P technologies from being used to their full potential to enhance your gaming experience. Our own Wayne Chang, who is also CEO of AceGain and ByteSwarm, which provide download functionality for GF!, takes a look at the promise of P2P technologies, focusing on ByteSwarm, the technology he knows best, as an example of potential benefits we could see from safe, secure P2P networks.

game: LucasArts Focus: Star Wars: Empire at War
preview | 02/14/05 | Blaine Krumpe
For some time, Star Wars games have had a perpetual hold on video game fans looking to experience more of the epic universe. The games themselves have traditionally been a mixed bag, with some good, some bad, and a few that radiated the dark side every time you passed the display case. The latest games in the pipeline, though, look to be full of the good stuff, from already released games like Knights of the Old Republic to the upcoming Republic Commando. One of those games is Empire at War, a real time strategy with all the stuff to be a hit. Check out Blaine's preview for a glimpse of things to come.

Kuon
game: Kuon
review | 02/12/05 | Laurie Taylor
Kuon on the PS2 seems like a minor release when compared to the new Resident Evil 4, but then perhaps that's part of its appeal. As an import title that you might have a hard time finding at your local rental outlet, Kuon offers rich import flavors, gameplay, and traditional survival horror control schemes. Does it have a place on your shelf? Read the review to find out.

Ubisoft Focus: Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
game: Ubisoft Focus: Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
preview | 02/09/05 | Chris Martin
Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow was unique in its ability to offer a multiplayer experience that was balanced and fun even though it had completely different play dynamics depending on the side you were on. Now, Chaos Theory aims to have spies working through levels in tandem with Co-op multiplay, a slew of new gadgets, and such added features as proximity communications. Getting a guard's attention is no longer a matter of just pressing a button to whistle, but actually whistling into your communicator. Will it work? If past experience with the series is any indication, it probably will. What else does Sam have up his sleeve this year? You'll have to read the preview to find out.

Resident Evil 4
game: Resident Evil 4
review | 01/24/05 | George Holomshek
As so many gamers will tell you, zombies make for good gaming. And the OG zombie shooter is Resident Evil. When it first came out, the RE series was an amazing achievement featuring moody camera angles and truly frightening gameplay. But after three major incarnations, and twice as many spin-offs, it's hard to keep the magic alive. So we were a little nervous about Resident Evil 4, the latest installment of the series. We all huddled in the back shed and then we pushed out one of our new guys, George, to see if the zombies would eat his brain. He got a little munched, but a couple of green herbs fixed him right up, and he managed to come up with an in-depth review. Click the details link for lots more.

It's a persistant question: How can I prioritize my gaming bandwidth over my download bandwidth? Whether you just download Podcasts on a regular schedule, or you share your connection with three other machines downloading email, if you want to keep lag low you need a router to prioritize gaming traffic. Fortunately, D-Link has heard our cries, and has given us the DGL 4300, a gamer's new favorite thing.
