BioShock comes to Steam

Well Steam is looking better and better first id signs up and now one of THE most anticipated games for the PC & X360 hits it!

I for one will be getting the X360 version, can't wait!! Never heard of the game? (you been under a rock!) visit here.




NEW YORK, NY, August 16, 2007 - Valve today announced that BioShock, the highly-anticipated and award-winning first-person shooter by 2K Games is available for pre-purchase now via Steam?. Starting today, gamers can pre-order BioShock on Steam for $49.95, and begin playing the moment the game is made available.

One of the most anticipated games of 2007, BioShock is the "genetically enhanced" first person shooter that lets players do things never before possible in the genre - turn everything into a weapon, biologically modify your body with plasmids, hack devices and systems, upgrade weapons and craft new ammo variants, and experiment with different battle techniques.

Gamers enter the game as a cast-away in Rapture, an underwater Utopia torn apart by civil war. Caught between powerful forces and hunted down by genetically modified "splicers" and deadly security systems, players have to come to grips with a deadly, mysterious world filled with powerful technology and fascinating characters. No encounter ever plays out the same and no two gamers will play BioShock the same way.

"Over the next six months, gamers will be hit with a barrage of highly-anticipated titles," said Gabe Newell, president and co-founder of Valve. "The lion's share of these great new releases will be PC games. And with the gameplay and graphic innovations featured in BioShock, it promises to be one of the most important games released in 2007."

BioShock is currently scheduled to be available via Steam and at retail on August 21 in the U.S. and August 24 in Europe. For more information or to pre-purchase BioShock, please visit www.steamgames.com today.





QuakeCon 2007 Tidbits!

Some of the better stuff to come out of the recent event:

The PC version of Splash Damage's long-awaited Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars will arrive in stores October 2, id Software CEO Todd Hollenshead announced during this evening's QuakeCon event. But Europe is getting it a few days prior to that. (but reports of the second beta have been disappointing to say the least!)

Plans to form a second development team whose first project will be an slightly updated version of Quake 3. Titled Quake Zero, the game will be available for free supported by advertising and launches from a web browser on both PC and Mac.

There are others things like rumourers of a Nintendo DS game "Quake Arena" and John Carmack hopes for something on the Wii as well as their new game which seems to be a driving/FPS game called "RAGE". A version of Quake 3 to appear on XBLA soon, to a proposed film based on the Castle Wolfenstein franchise.

Battlefield 2142 Beta 1.40
Tue

By: HoriZon

EA have released the beta 1.40 patch for Battlefield 2142. Biggest improvement is the addition of the Highway Tampa map, which you can see below.




Another new feature is the autosave option for custom kits: BF2142 will now remember your kit pre selections. This will increase the speed joining the battle. The are also a few bugfixes and gameplay changes:


  • Fixed an exploit that would allow commanders to call Orbital and EMP strikes before it had fully recharged
  • The Clark RDX Shotgun can now detonate other nearby explosives
  • EU Assault Rifle recoil and deviation have been slightly reduced
  • Bianchi and Shuko LMGs recoil reduced
  • Clark Shotgun rate of fire increased


Just a few weeks to wait! (or maybe months!?)
