    More on Half-Life Beta: Ivan the Space Viking, and Company

    Do you remember that picture that was on Digg a while back, which showed a model of Gordon Freeman from Half-Life, in his early stages?

     4219076033_4c3b279338

    Well, I was doing a search the other day for Half-Life stuff, like one does, and came across this.

    Half_Life_1_Beta_Characters_by_GlitchyProductions

    There’s Ivan again

    Surprisingly, unlike the first image, which got much more publicity, this one above was only dugg once on digg, and yet according to the dates on deviantart, where I saw it, it looks like it was added sometime in 2008.

    Here’s some comments from the guy:

    “1.The guy holding the gun is what Gordon Freeman looked like in the early betas.
    2.The girl is a character from Half-Life Decay.
    3.The small purple thing is a Chumtoad (Only seen in Blue Shift).
    4.The thing that looks like a penis is A ACTUAL ALIEN PENIS! When it attacked you it would knock off Gordon's glasses and tentacle rape him (FOR REAL).
    4.It is the beta version of a Advisor.”

    In any case, that monster on the far right looks as though it would have been some scary sh!t to face off against. Certain parts of it remind me of Madonna! I remember seeing some images like these in a Half-Life review in NAG magazine years ago, just when the game was released, and long after Valve had gone past the beta stage.

    friendlypic8nrdk7 I decided to search more for Half-Life beta stuff, and found a thread that’s started a few years ago that contains some interesting stuff on Half-Life Beta, with pictures of several character and all the stages they went through before the final version. Read this thread. It’s awesome. I promise…apart from the constant cursing all the time. But hey, forums, you know.

    Mainly I decided to post about this, even though it’s nothing new, because I’m going through a Half-Life stage at the moment. I think I might actually play the games for the first time in years. By that I mean Half-Life, Opposing Force, and Blue Shift.

    You can even check out some stuff about the Half-Life 2 beta on wikia while you’re at it.

    Borderlands Triple Pack Now Available on Direct2Drive

    BT Direct2Drive has all your Borderlands needs for PC.

    They have Borderlands, Borderlands: The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, Borderlands: Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot, and the Borderlands + Dr. Ned Bundle.

    Now they even have the Borderlands Triple Pack, which consists of Borderlands, The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, and Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot. That’s the main game and the two (so far) DLC packs released for the game. I still have to hear of any other DLC packs that will come in the future.

    If you think Fallout 3 was pretty organised with their DLC bundle packs and GOTY Edition, then Borderlands has done it as well, and quicker too.

    Crysis 2 set in New York City, Alien Invasion

    C2 I all ready predicted this long ago, while watching some tech demos for CryEngine 3, and there were some scenes of what definitely looked like Crysis 2, and it was set in an urban environment.

    Well, the cover of PlayStation: The Official Magazine’s March edition confirms this by having the phrase "Aliens invading NYC? No problem! Blast their faces off with the Nanosiut 2.0!" on the front, and in addition to this, Gary Steinman, the editor-in-chief of the magazine tweeted about it:

    "Crysis 2 set in NYC!!"

    I guess it should have been expected. Look at it this way: I got some major Predator vibes while playing Crysis. This was mainly due to the cloak ability that you can enable within your nanosuit interface, and you blend in with the environment.

    So, Predator was set in the jungle on an island, as was Crysis, but Predator 2 was set in the city, and now so is Crysis 2. The only thing to worry about here is that Predator rocked although it was a bit cheesy in the beginning, it got better as it went along, while Predator 2 came off as just laughable – quite a good comedy actually. I hope this doesn’t happen to Crysis 2. But let’s face it: who wants to spend even more time in the same setting? I dunno…

    Crysis in New York City. So besides facing the aliens and stuff, there will no doubt be your civilians, and military, the police, and perhaps the odd bum, wino, or knife-wielding psychotic who “wants your suit or your life” to deal with.

    Crysis was a PC exclusive, while Crysis 2 will make an appearance on Xbox 360 as well as the PS3, and it should come out sometime in Electronic Arts’ next fiscal year (April 1, 2010 - March 31, 2011).

    People who buy the issue of PTOM will likely scan some pages and put some stuff up on the internet. So we’ll get to see and read more about the game soon. PC Gamers all ready seem to be upset that the game isn’t a PC exclusive. Now come on guys, just be glad we’ll be able to play it all.

    I’m not 100% convinced it has much chance of making this year. Maybe not as convinced as I was last year. Next year’s looking better.

    By the way, don’t you think that nanosuit looks pretty cool? On the outside it does anyway. Imagine the little, scrawny person on the inside. Can’t say I’m really noticing any differences from the first one, at least externally. Maybe there’s more improvements as regards the suit’s abilities. I hope you can upgrade them, and make the damn cloak last longer.

    BioShock 2 Preorder Deals at Amazon and Direct2Drive

    BShock1 BioShock 2 is releasing next month, and needless to say everyone is talking about it. And now, as we get closer to the day, Amazon as well as some digital distribution services have come up with some good deals for people who preorder the game from them.

    Let’s start with Amazon’s preorder deal:

    This is sadly only for the PS3 version of the game, but if you preorder the BioShock 2 special edition, you’ll get a big daddy costume for PlayStation Home. It’s a model of the prototype big daddy that you’ll play as in BioShock 2. Not just any old Big Daddy.

    On the plus side, even though the Big Daddy costume is only for the PS3 version, the Special Edition is still available for Xbox 360 and PC. Stuff that’s included in the edition: an art book, posters, an audio recording and more.

    And now for Direct2Drive’s offer:

    If you preorder BioShock 2, then you get the first game free! That saves you $20 right there. Plus you also get 10% off the price of BioShock 2. It may not be the special edition, but it sounds like a better deal to me.

    No Half-Life Games Coming This Year at all

    It was noticed in an issue of Game Informer, and originally reported on Cinemablend that it was rumoured that there would be no Half-Life games coming out this year. That means no Half-Life 2: Episode 3, and definitely no Half-Life 3 (as if that would happen anytime soon).

    "Loose Talk has learned that there won't be any game from the franchise in 2010, and what will finally come out is still unknown. Will it be Half-Life 2: Episode Three? Or will it be a full-on Half-Life 3?"

    Valve is working on Episode 3 though:

    “Yes, of course we’re doing Episode 3.” – Gabe Newell

    Some details of Ep3 have leaked over the last while, like the rumour about the game featuring a deaf character, and sign language.

    I had no doubt in my mind that we wouldn’t see the game this year, so it’s hardly surprising. Episode 3 has been featured in some articles titled “Games that won’t see 2010”, including my own article.

    Flash: Aliens vs. Predator Kill Moves Trailer

    Aliens vs. Predator Kill Moves Trailer

    They’re right when they talk about this trailer: it is absolutely brutal, and I’m very surprised that it was allowed to be shown on The Verge recently. Then again, they have a lot of outrageous stuff on that channel.

    Anyway, like the name suggests, in this Aliens vs. Predator trailer, you will run through a pretty short, blindingly fast look at some of the insane kills you’ll be able to execute as each species: The Predator, the alien, and the marine. The best ones likely belong to the first two mentioned above though.

    There’s lots of screaming, bleeding, and do doubt, killing, going on, and it’s the first trailer I’ve seen in a long time that made me smile evilly, as the Predator cackles at the end after impaling a Xenomorph on his wrist blades. Just awesome.

    It’s Your Birthday: Will Wright

    Will Wright Yes, today, January 20th, in 1960, Will Wright was born. He turns 50 today.

    Who’s Will Wright? One of the most recognised names in the video game industry. Shame on you.

    Will grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, and stayed there until nine years of age, when his father, Bill Wright Sr., died of leukaemia. His mother, Beverlye (Beverley?), then took the family and moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, her hometown. There he finished high school at 16 and went to Louisiana State University, Louisiana Tech, and then the New School University. Wright didn’t ever get that degree he wanted.

    Will Wright is the main man behind Maxis, the company who made games like SimCity and The Sims, the most popular series, as well as many other titles with”Sim” included in them. He co-founded it along with Jeff Braun. The company was later bought by Electronic Arts in the late nineties.

    The next major title that was designed by Will was Spore.

    Since then, he’s left Maxis, and gone on to found Stupid Fun Club, another video game company.
    Interesting stuff about Will:
    • He is a collector of leftovers from the Soviet space program.
    • After five years in college, Wright didn’t get a degree.
    • Will has more fun designing and building games and levels than playing them.
    • Will hasn’t ever been involved in developing mindless, violent video games.
    • Will stated once that one of his motives behind The Sims was his own lack of social skills.
    • Will has been given awards, including a "Lifetime Achievement Award" at the Game Developers Choice Awards, and inductee into the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences' Hall of Fame, and the PC Magazine Lifetime Achievement Award, as well as a fellowship in the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTAs).
    • Stanley Kubrick is one of his idols.
    • As a child, he was interested in model making.
    • Will became an atheist in high school.
    • Among others, some of his interests include computers and robotics.
    • Will is held in high esteem by many people, and compared to peers such as Roberta Williams and Peter Molyneux.
    • Once, Will participated in and won an illegal street race.

    Keen Dreams: Call of Duty, Blackadder, and Married With Children

    A look inside my mind…

    peggybundytrench   codsnow hugh Griggs

    It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts. If you don’t know what it’s about, Keen Dreams is about dreams I have that involve video games. Of course, Keen Dreams is also a title of a Commander Keen title. Clever, huh?

    So, the other night, I dreamt that I was in a room looking for something with non other than Peggy Bundy and her daughter Kelly – the blonde bimbo. Probably from watching reruns of Married With Children.

    Then after that it was off to the trenches with explosions going off and wounded people all over the place. It was like a scene out of a Call of Duty game. In fact, I even saw Griggs there (from Modern Warfare), sitting atop a barrel, screaming in agony. He had a serious injury – very serious. An explosion had blown off his foreskin. Ouch.

    After the battle there we all were – running through the snow towards a double story building where we all crowded around. And it was time for the medals to be handed out, as Hugh Laurie from Blackadder, covered in bandoliers and bandages, approached the stairs to receive his commendation.

    But then, the small ceremony was interrupted by someone – a traitor in our midst – perhaps a German Spy. The name tag above his head read something like “Nolvus” or “Nolvilius”, as he drew his sword and attacked. Then everyone else predictably cut him down, as I drew my pistol and aimed at his head…

    No, I don't do drugs. This was all a dream. Weird, huh?

    Guitar Hero: Megadeth Coming Along Sometime

    I don’t usually give a stuff about these music games. It’s like some artists, like Prince, say: rather just learn to play the real instrument.

    Anyway, it was something that I was wondering the other day. When it would eventually take place, and that is Guitar Hero: Megadeth.

    Dave Mustaine answered some fan mail about Guitar Hero on the band’s website the other day:

    “Hey,
    I was just wondering if you guys would ever consider doing a whole guitar hero game based on your band. It would definately
    (sic) be the greatest addition yet, without question.
    Thanks,”


    Travis


    “Will Megadeth ever be on a Guitar Hero game? I don’t mean have a song or two like Guitar Hero 2, but have their own game like a couple of other bands. I am a huge Megadeth fan and would just enjoy the hell out of a Megadeth Guitar hero game.”


    Vernon

    Dave responded thusly:

    "I have recently had two very important high-level meetings with the people from Activision and Neversoft, and we are talking about a lot of things, but a Guitar Hero box set is not as attractive to me and the people from Guitar Hero as the new idea that they offered me, as the creative stuff that we are talking about is over-the-moon! I just hope that someone doesn’t stand in the way of this happening. I know that there are a lot of really damaging results from our mothership (WEA) having some legal disputes with YouTube and Guitar Hero to name just a few."

    Now as much as this is something that interests me, I’m just thinking here: if only Dave knew what Activision is really like. Remember the whole Kurt Cobain debacle last year? I’m thinking that they might just get Megadeth to do something in the game that they would never do in real life: like cover a Metallica song.

    Resident Evil 5 DLC and Gold Edition Coming Soon

    screenshot252

    At the moment I’m playing Resident Evil 5 on PC, so I found this interesting.

    It looks as though in February and March there will be some DLC coming for the console versions of the game (Xbox 360, PS3). And on top of that, there will be a retail version called the "Gold Edition” or Resident Evil 5 Gold, which will bundle these DLC packs along with the original game, RE5. That will be coming in March too.

    Unfortunately, as with most titles nowadays, neither the DLC packs nor the Gold Edition look like they’re coming to the PC – just consoles as usual.

    What are Your Video Game/Entertainment/Internet Inspired New Year’s Resolutions for 2010?

    Each and ever year we make resolutions that rarely ever get done, and by the end of the year, we’re not only thinking well, that was a waste of time, but we start on making new ones.

    So, anyhow, it’s 2010, and to put a spin on New Year’s Resolutions, I thought I would share some of my ideas on how I could improve my video game, entertainment, and internet habits in one way or another.

    Now, traditionally, I think I always made ten on a list, but you can have however many you want. Some of them are ones I plan to follow, others are just there but will likely never happen, and some are ones I thought that I would share that are actually other people’s resolutions.

    Here goes:

    • Write more articles and reviews

    I write these on old and new games that I play every year, and I have been doing so for years, although only online since about 2008. I need to step it up and get more articles and reviews published.

    • Start new blogs

    I always promise myself that I’ll do this. AAA is the one blog I’m most active on, and I’ve tried to start other blogs but I hardly ever post on them. Part of me thinks, meh, just have everything on one blog as just one big mash-up, but I’ve also been thinking of diversifying and starting other blogs and websites dedicated to different topics and niches.

    • Write for another site or blog

    I usually don’t like being told what to do, and that’s why I run my own blogs and do my own thing, but I always see other people on some blogs who write for multiple different blogs. Whether they get paid or not for doing so, I don’t know, but I guess it could help with exposure, and you can get backlinks and more traffic.

    • Get other people to write for my blogs

    Once again, I don’t know whether they’d get paid, but I’ve thought about this too. Sometimes I like to take a day or two off, and there are so many stories out there that it’s hard to cover on my own. That’s usually why I take just one or two big stories that interest me and post that each day, and in addition to that I sometimes have more original stuff on the blog as well.

    • Host a blog carnival

    I’ve been thinking about doing this, mainly because over at prosody.co.uk, where James Newton hosts the video game blog carnivals every now and again…well, that’s just it: it used to be practically every month, but then it went to every other month, and the last carnival was in October 2009. I was thinking about hosting my own sometime. I’d set up a separate e-mail address and then people could submit their posts and stuff and I could do a post about it every month or every other month, featuring the best ones, like the top ten or something. That would help me get some traffic as well as for others.

    • Join some more affiliate programs

    I’ve got a few affiliate programs going, and I’ve thought about expanding for some time by joining some others. I’m hoping that when it comes to this blog, maybe one day Steam will start a program. How cool would that be, seeing as Steam has 70% of the digital distribution market? But like some say, it’s run by Valve, so what are the chances…

    • Play some bad or average games

    This is just one of those hypothetical resolutions that probably won’t come true. Each and every month we comb the video game reviews for “good” games, and ignore the rest. A good video game is often considered as one that gets 90% and over in a review, and the rest is just mediocre fluff or rubbish that nobody’s interested in. I dare myself, and I dare you to play a “bad” game, and make up your own mind as to whether you like it or not. You might be surprised that it really does come down to your own opinion. Most say that Wolfenstein was boring, others say it was rubbish. I actually didn’t mind it at all.

    • Play some classic games

    I once said this in a forum thread, that I refer to “old” games as classics, and was subsequently jeered at by all the other posters, seeing as they were all into the latest and greatest. But to learn to really appreciate what we have today, you should go back and play some of the old games, not just to see how ugly they look by today’s standards, but what it was like to play the actual game; when FPSs and RPGs were new and MMOs weren’t even around. You might even be impressed at how advanced and beyond their time some games actually were. Have a look at System Shock and compare it to Doom, and you’ll see what I mean.

    • Get into social networking and bookmarking more

    I just joined Facebook the other day, and Twitter several months ago, as well as Digg, but I must be honest, social bookmarking as a whole just makes me kind of nervous and like I’ve heard others say, “I hate social networking”. I know there’s a difference between the two, but I didn’t want to have two separate points on the list.

    • Play an MMORPG or a multiplayer game

    A smile crept across my face when I read an article last year about a group of people who don’t do online gaming, like in World of WarCraft, and what have you. What!? Yes, there are people like that on this earth. I guess you could argue that they have lives and what have you.

    But I have to be honest, I haven’t played WoW and for the five plus years it’s been around, I’ve generally just ignored it. As for multiplayer, again, I haven’t played multiplayer for a long while now. I engaged in LANning a lot when I was younger, at the computer academy at school, but that was different. You could just walk in, sit down, and hook up a game and play. When I was invited to a LAN party, I usually avoided the whole situation, because I didn’t want to have to unplug my whole rig and take it to the place, then bring it back and it doesn’t work properly. It’s happened to me.

    Multiplayer on PCs can be kind of frustrating like that.

    • Buy a console

    I’ve played on a PlayStation, and various other consoles over the years, but I haven’t actually owned one. I know…

    I’ve had plans to buy either a PS3 or an Xbox 360 for years. The whole console controller affair turned me off, but I mean, with a PS3 I read that you can plug in a keyboard and a mouse, seeing as FPSs and RPGs are usually my games of choice.

    Besides, in regard to my point on PC multiplayer, multiplayer on consoles is generally easier as you can have another person just pick up a controller, plug it in, and away you go. I imagine it would also be a lot more hassle-free to buy games and such for a console what with the upgrading nonsense when it comes to PCs. It’s been years since I’ve upgraded my rig, and it shows in my games, whereas with consoles, they have more longevity, if you know what I mean.

    Recently it was said that the Xbox 360 wasn’t even half-way through its lifespan. So it might still be around in 2015. Although, sometimes the graphics on a console version aren’t as good as the PC version – if there is one, what with console exclusives like Uncharted 2 or Gears of War 2… or Killzone 2… or Halo 3: ODST. You get the idea.

    • Play an indie or free title

    We all go on about the major releases. Those are the only ones that make the most anticipated lists. But what about the indie titles, the free games, the mods that sometimes get talked about on the side. A lot of love and effort goes into these games, and it’s not about the money, like with major developers with their publishers and licence games and so on.

    • Watch less porn

    I read this on a forum recently where this guy said it was pretty self-explanatory. And it is. Porn is cool for a while, but eventually it becomes a nasty little habit, and you find you can’t live without it. Ron Jeremy, the famous, bald, little porn star with some large equipment, claims that video games are worse for kids than porn. Well, Ron, I think if anyone was ever exposed to some of your self-sucking situations, that would likely scar a kid for life more so than a game would. Sorry, but it’s true.

    Yet another week with not much out that I really want. The rage this week for most people though, is Dark Void. Reviews for the game so far have been mixed. Another title that is yet again on the list is Twin Sector. I thought this was released last year, but no, Gamespot has it listed for this week. Don’t know what’s up with that. Reviews for that game have been poor, anyway.

    Oh, well, I’m happy playing Resident Evil 5 anyway. I haven’t done a pick of the week for some time now. Nothing really that worthwhile out right now.

    Links go to game detail pages at Amazon, etc., as usual.

    What does AAA stand for?

    It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
