A few more games for you to play for free, as Ubisoft have released full versions of four of their games. These are ad-supported though, so hopefully you don't mind seeing a few McDonald's ads. FileShack has them all to download:
Unfortunately at this time its for US people only! But its good to see these FREE games coming! In the UK? you have to lie and say you're American to get the download. That's quite a price though.
id Software take note!
That game that kicked off
the series is now available free from EA!
They're offering it as a part of the anniversary of Command & Conquer, which is 12 years old this year. An odd time to celebrate imo, but meh, it's free!
A privileged few have been seen playing a full version of Halo 3 online, suggesting the game's complete status, but Microsoft today officially announced that Bungie's Xbox 360 sci-fi shooter sequel has gone gold and is on track for its Sept 25 worldwide release.
"This is a huge milestone for us and a big cause for celebration at Bungie and Microsoft Game Studios," said studio head Harold Ryan. "This is the game we've always wanted to make and certainly the best game our studio has developed. We can't wait for gamers to get their hands on it on Sept. 25."
Microsoft, always bullish on Halo franchise sales projections, expects the game to "shatter day-one entertainment sales records," as the game has already achieved one million retail preorders in North America. The release of Halo 2 for Xbox saw first-day sales that eclipsed both film and game industry records.Source: Shacknews
What was due for the end of June to celebrate our 9th Birthday missed the deadline unfortunately.
But here it is almost complete only a few small things to do! (nav menu new look and top right logo! been the most obvious!)
Its on a CMS (Content Management System) called e107 which has had this custom theme made and just about every default graphic has been changed to our own style, these were a few hundred icons to very large things like the banners you can see.

Their is a lot more the site offers and even a lot more for site members but for that you will have to register
for an account.
Which brings me to my last few points, the site works best in Google Chrome, Internet Explorer 7 and Mozilla Firefox 2 it will work in other browsers like Opera (PC & Wii) and to a lesser extent IE6 but the latter is very buggy and is not recommend plus no one should be on that browser in this day and age!! (I may get around to fixing it) The site is also best viewed in a resolution of 1280 and above as well.
Also note there may be a few bugs to iron out over time we will fix these, please report any you find here
.All the old accounts are unfortunately gone as this system is new so you will have to re-sign up for an account as they have not been transferred. So don't delay register today!!
Thanks go to ROB and silentbob for all their help.
Welcome to the Phoenix Rising site version 6.0!
is saying that a Crysis demo will be out next month!
Halo 3 will be dominating the headlines in late September, but PC gamers needn't sulk, because Crytek says that it will release a Crysis demo on 25th September.
The demo will consist of the entire first level of the single-player game. Called "Contact", it will give you a taste of the fancy graphics, fancy Nanosuit gameplay and fancy open-ended level design that make the game - for want of a better word - fancy.
What's more, Crytek says the demo is "poised to include a huge surprise from Crytek". Perhaps they're going to correct the typo in the name.
Valve have released a new Team Fortress 2 video featuring footage of the Soldier character class. You can view it here
