Premium Starcraft Peripherals

Starcraft 2 is coming, and as expected, a tidal wave of expensive hardware is coming as well to coincide with Blizzard’s upcoming RTS. Premium mice and keyboards are being created by Razer, who also worked on a special World of Warcraft mouse as well. The mouse is called the Spectre, and it’s running for $79.99. The features you get for the price are 5 buttons, multicolor LED lights that change dynamically for performance feedback, as well as looking nice. If you want to get sensitivity, the Spectre has that as well, with a 5600 DPI laser sensor, that is “tournament ready.”

Day of Defeat: Source Now On Mac

Continuing Valve’s initiative to take over the world, they’ve released Day of Defeat: Source onto Mac. All the expected features, like cross-platform play, are fully present and accounted for, making Valve objectively the kindest group of people in the known world.

Expect some ridiculous sale to follow, maybe even a 75% $2.50 slash they did during their summer sale barrage. You have to wonder just how little it costs for them to spare the gigabytes of bandwidth if they can do this with such reckless abandon every week. Anyway, expect a dozen new users filling up the servers. Yep, I’m not letting go of this joke, because it probably isn’t that far from the truth.

APB: One Week Later

It’s been a week since All Points Bulletin went live to the world in all its chaotic glory, and in that time I’ve ascertained new opinions on the lobby system masquerading as an MMO. I wish I could say these opinions were of a positive nature, but they aren’t. To express the level of disappointment I feel now compared to last week would require some form of Vulcan mind-meld mixed with a cocktail of Xanax and Valium to prevent you from killing yourself.

All Points Bulletin Review

In 2002, David Jones, former developer on franchises such as Lemmings and Grand Theft Auto, bought out his long time stomping ground of Rage Software and reformed it under the name Realtime Worlds. In 2007, Realtime Worlds released it’s first major title, third person shooter Crackdown. The independently run company found success and an audience, despite mixed critical acclaim. By 2005, RTW had begun work on All Points Bulletin, a GTA inspired cops and robbers styled MMO.

APB is an MMOTPS (Massively Multiplayer Online Third Person Shooter) in which players take the role of vigilante enforcer or rogue criminal in the virtual city of San Paro. Gameplay is split between two action districts which are split into instances of up to 80 players each. Each side has separate NPC contacts to do basic repeatable missions that reward money and reputation for the player amongst factions and contacts. Reputation unlocks equipment, items, clothing, and designs which you can then purchase using the in-game money you collect from missions or bounties.

Counter-Strike: Source On Mac Plus Update

Now is the time to get Counter-Strike: Source… I guess? Since Valve wants to work on everything else before it starts to work on Half-Life 2: Episode Three in earnest, they found themselves a little project to twiddle their thumbs with.

The updates been a long time coming. It was beta-tested a month ago and now the game’s ready for its Mac launch and major update. Graphical upgrades, better leaderboards, cinematic killcams — pretty much the stuff that came with Team Fortress 2, was retrofitted onto Day of Defeat: Source and now Counter-Strike: Source.

id Software has Rage

So Rage is a first-person shooter that takes place on Earth after most of the life on Earth was wiped out in a cataclysmic event with some of the survivors taking shelter underground in order to keep humanity going. Sounds familiar, no?


Fortunately, even though the setting will remind players of Fallout 3 and Borderlands, Rage is it’s own game. Rage is the first brand new IP in around ten years for id Software, the famous developers who created the infamous title Doom.
