Submitted by: Got Haggis? @ 01:46 PM | Friday, August 1, 2014 | (url:


FRAG LIKE IT'S 1999: TOXIKK plays as if today's military shooters never existed. The game combines the simple and intuitive mechanics of old-school FPS giants with a fresh setting, slick graphics and our vision to carefully evolve the genre with some new ideas elaborated with Arena-FPS enthusiasts.

Designed as a spiritual successor to the fast paced arena shooters of the late 90s and early 2ks, there is no leveling, no skill-trees, no perks, no cover systems, no classes, no configurable weapons and no iron sight aiming.

Sales of PC Gaming Hardware Predicted to Hit $27B in 2010

Submitted by: 9Millimeter @ 10:22 AM | Saturday, November 21, 2009 | (url:

JPR has released a new report that predicts sales of PC gaming hardware will reach $27 billion in 2010. The global PC hardware gaming market is expected to grow by $1.2 billion this year, a 5.9% increase from 2008.

The increase is due to an increased demand for enthusiast, performance, and mainstream hardware influenced by the desire to play games on the PC. The PC gaming market is set to grow by 30% in 2010 due in part to delays in buying systems in 2008/2009 as users waited for the economy to improve.

This means that any of you console gamers out there who like to think PC gaming is dead need to think again. The market is growing impressively despite the poor economy and top tier games are still coming to the platform.

Guitar Hero has some REAL competition

Submitted by: Shadow(of)Death @ 05:43 PM | Saturday, March 1, 2008 | (url: http://us.i1.yimg...)

On display in a packed booth at the recent Game Developer's Conference, Guitar Rising takes the basic concept of Guitar Hero -- players strum along to popular songs for points -- and turns it into a legitimate teaching tool by exchanging plastic game peripherals for bona fide wood and steel guitars.

Watch Guitar Hero III Videos

Best of all, there's no need to make room for yet another piece of bulky hardware: Using a small USB converter similar to the kind employed by everyday living room musicians, Guitar Rising can be played with any electric guitar. Simply plug a standard electric guitar cable into one end and plug the USB out into any USB port on your PC to be up and rocking.

Gaspowered Games developing DotA based game

Submitted by: FalseMyrmidon @ 07:57 AM | Friday, January 4, 2008 | (url:

Chris Taylor's Gas Powered Games is best known for its RTS Supreme Commander and its action-RPG series Dungeon Siege -- so maybe it's just the natural course of evolution that the developer's newest game, Demigod, should borrow a bunch from both of those genres: It's an action/RPG/RTS hybrid, inspired partly by the popular WarCraft III mod Defense of the Ancients.

For those who've never tried DotA, it concentrates on two teams trying to destroy each others' bases; though rather than managing all the units or gathering resources as in a regular RTS, players each control a single Hero unit with different powers, leveling up by killing A.I. enemies around the map.

Former Irrational Games employees now refuse to work with Ken Levine

Submitted by: FalseMyrmidon @ 01:53 PM | Monday, December 3, 2007 | (url: http://www.bit-te...)

"2K Boston is still recovering - a good chunk of the BioShock team did not want to work with Ken ever again, and 2K definitely understood the sentiment and let them set up a new studio so that they can make Bioshock 2, leaving Ken with Project X. A good chunk of the other senior 2K Boston people who were sick of Ken but didn't move to San Francisco ended up scattering to other AAA developers instead. In Quincy, they're essentially rebuilding a team from almost scratch again."

I wonder if KineticPoet is among the people that left.

NY TImes: EVE Online Still Expanding

Submitted by: NAT Mav @ 08:17 AM | Wednesday, November 28, 2007 | (url: http://www.nytime...)

With its formidable depth, complexity and Kilimanjaro-like learning curve, Eve will never rival World of Warcraft and its nine million customers for mass-market appeal. But at a stage when most games have long since stagnated, Eve continues to grow, recently passing 200,000 subscribers. Today, CCP plans to announce a major graphics overhaul scheduled for Dec. 5. Just this past Sunday, Eve set a record for any game when it recorded 37,729 simultaneous players in its common virtual universe.

Multiplayer FPS confirmed by Garage Games for InstantAction

Submitted by: FalseMyrmidon @ 08:16 PM | Monday, November 19, 2007 | (url: http://www.tribal...)

Still not 100% confirmed (supposedly it could still randomly turn into Marble Blast Extreme) but it is from a GG employee. Also no confirmation on whether it has Jetpacks or not.

you probably saw some of those interviews Josh Williams did where he said we were doing a online FPS game for InstantAction. He is a jerk for that, but he was correct.

I'm working with a team of 5 core people, plus a few other employees part-time on this and other stuff, and a few external contractors. We aren't doing anything huge, just a fun online game, similar in size to something you might see on Steam. We plan on doing lots of open beta stuff as IA gives us a lot of cool upsides. We plan to make the game very open and mod-able once we have the core done, user content, etc.
