    Aliens vs Predator has unlocked on Steam

    There's probably a lull of enthusiasm since the disappointing Aliens vs Predator demo, but all reviews point toward it being a solid title despite that. For those that have pre-purchased on Steam, the game is now available for download globally - ahead of the Steam 'countdown' date. However, as mentioned, there are no dedicated servers yet - with any luck they'll be along shortly....

  • New Riddick movie made possible by games?

    New Riddick movie made possible by games?

    So, they're making a third Riddick film - the first being Pitch Black, in case you were unaware. This may come as a surprise because the second; Chronicles of Riddick, cost $105 million and only made just shy of $60 million at the US box office.

    So, why on earth is another being made? How can it be made? Quite simply, it's not the movie making the money, but revenue streams outside the box off...

  • Aliens vs Predator released without dedicated servers

    Aliens vs Predator released without dedicated servers

    In the wake of the PC community's Modern Warfare 2 backlash, Rebellion made it very clear that dedicated servers were on their Aliens vs Predator development agenda. It was then quite strange then, even disheartening, that they decided to provide only a peer-to-peer match-making option for their demo release.

    What's more is that AVP is now available in the United States, and there are still no dedicated servers. The files required for hosts to run them haven't been distributed, or even finalised it seems. This has garnered a huge "w-t-f" from the community, and it looks like we're stuck with single player until Rebellion pull their finger out......

  • No PC release for Alan Wake

    No PC release for Alan Wake

    I remember being really excited about the PC release of Alan Wake. It turns out Remedy weren't, though. Just days ago it was made clear that the anticipated title is to make its way to the Xbox 360 only; "we ultimately realized that the most compelling way to experience Alan Wake was on the Xbox 360 platform, so we focused on making it an Xbox 360 exclusive" a Microsoft representative told Strategy Informer....

    Rebellion defends AVP demo, gets reviewed

    I wasn't alone with my Aliens vs Predator demo disappointment. Rebellion got the message loud and clear, unfortunately, they just don't see eye-to-eye with their fans.

    Jason Kingsley, CEO and co-founder of Rebellion, says the motivation was to familiarise players with the controls... ...

    Bad Company 2 EA server maintenance extended

    Who else was just playing Mass Effect 2 for hours, hoping to get in a quick game of Bad Company 2 before bed? A DICE rep over at the EA UK forums has posted notifying us of extended beta down-time.

    Previously scheduled to finish around 15 minutes ago (11pm AEST, 12am AEDT), it seems we'll have to wait an undetermined time longer......

  • Mass Effect 3 review
    by cmdr_lynchie
    The first two instalments of the Mass Effect series are widely considered to be some of the best games ever made. Certainly they rank among the greatest RPGs. With the outstanding quality of their story telling, and their stunning audio and visuals, they set the bar so high for the third instalment that some began to wonder if disappointment was inevitable. Thankfully the doubters have been proven wrong, as with Mass Effect 3 Bioware has not only cleared the bar, but they raised it several not...
