An Oldie, But Still Going Strong, Tibia

First released in 1997, Tibia is one of the most long-running Massively Multi-Player Online Role Playing Games (MMORPGs). With more than a decade to draw in new players the userbase is huge, with active player numbers in the six figures. Unfortunately the global appeal of the game can make interactions difficult, as many players do not speak the same languages.

One of the big pluses of this game is the extremely low system requirements – compared to other MMORPGs. Basically any system can handle it. In addition to that, the download is nice and small, making it getting started a breeze. This is however the result to some quite simple graphics that may not be enough for some players that are used to big budget effects.

Players will see a nicely simple user interface, with inventories and other data confined to the side of the screen. Both PvP and non PvP servers are available, and ten years of updates means that there is a lot to play through and experience.

The free version will leave your character somewhat limited, with your character restricted to only four vocations and a limited list of features, unless you pay extra.

Tibia wouldn’t still be running if it wasn’t an enjoyable game. If you can get past the graphics then you will find a huge community and a lot of content. The free version is well worth your time and you might find yourself happily paying for extra features.

Stack up the blocks with this fun, retro game – Tetris

I remember getting an original 8-bit Nintendo for Christmas back in 1992. One of the games that I enjoyed the most was Tetris. It was challenging, fun, entertaining, and all the rage back in the day. This is one of the reasons why I really like Tetris Zone. It’s a fun, multi-platform game for your PC.

Tetris Zone offers four modes of play, from the simple, yet challenging 15-level Marathon mode to an instant hard-drop variation, and more. The game’s stunning 3D graphics make the Tetris experience exciting as you experience new levels of play.

Tetris has four game variations to keep you entertained for hours. It also includes a full instant replay mode, so you can relive your best game, including your all-time hi-score and your daily best. You can automatically upload your scores to a world-wide Leader Board and compare your ranking against players from the around the world. Tetris is an authentic retro-Tetris game designed and optimized specifically for Windows and OS X.

Tetris Zone is a decent game and it’s a lot of fun. The graphics are good, and the sound is decent. I had a lot of fun with this, and it brought back a lot of fun memories. If you’re looking for Tetris, this is a great implementation; and is a lot of fun.

Crysis 3 coming spring 2013

As expected, EA announced officially that the third installment of the high-tech military shooter franchise in the Crysis series is scheduled for release in spring 2013.

“Crysis 3 is a thrilling mix of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat and hi-tech human and alien weaponry that shooter fans will love,” said Cevat Yerli, Chief Executive Officer of Crytek. “Leveraging the latest CryENGINE technology, we’re able to deliver seven unique themes that offer stunning and visually loaded gameplay experiences. We cannot wait until people get their hands on the game.”

Players take on the role of ‘Prophet’ as he returns to New York, only to discover that the city has been encased in a Nanodome created by the corrupt Cell Corporation. The New York City Liberty Dome is a veritable urban rainforest teeming with overgrown trees, dense swamplands and raging rivers. Within the Liberty Dome, seven distinct and treacherous environments become known as the Seven Wonders. This dangerous new world demands advanced weapons and tactics. Prophet will utilize a lethal composite bow, an enhanced Nanosuit and devastating alien tech to become the deadliest hunter on the planet.

Set in 2047, Prophet is on a revenge mission after uncovering the truth behind Cell Corporation’s motives for building the quarantined Nanodomes. The citizens were told that the giant citywide structures were resurrected to protect the population and to cleanse these metropolises of the remnants of Ceph forces. In reality, the Nanodomes are CELL’s covert attempt at a land and technology grab in their quest for global domination. With Alien Ceph lurking around every corner and human enemies on the attack, nobody is safe in the path of vengeance. Everyone is a target in Prophet’s quest for retribution.

Fans of the game can pre-order the Crysis 3 Hunter Edition (49.99 euros) from Origin.

Diablo III Launching May 15

Great news, folks. Blizzard has finally announced officially their release date for Diablo III which is set for May 15.

“After many years of hard work by our development team and months of beta testing by hundreds of thousands of dedicated players around the world, we’re now in the homestretch,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We look forward to putting the final polish on Diablo III over the next two months and delivering the ultimate action-RPG experience to gamers worldwide starting on May 15.”

In Diablo III, players take on the role of one of five heroic characters — barbarian, witch doctor, wizard, monk, or demon hunter — and engage in combat with endless legions of evil. In your journey, you will explore diverse and perilous settings, grow in experience and ability, acquire artifacts of incredible power, and meet key characters who’ll join them in battle or aid them in other ways.

One of the most interesting things in Diablo III is the auction house – a place where the players can trade their hard-earned treasures. You’ll be able to buy and sell weapons, armor, and other valuable items in the auction house in exchange for in-game gold. Players will also have the option to receive real-world currency for auction house sales, which they can apply to their Battle.net Balance for the purchase of a variety of digital products through Battle.net, including Diablo III auction house items, or cash out through a third-party payment service such as PayPal in most regions.

Diablo III will be available for Windows XP/Windows Vista/Windows 7 and Macintosh at a suggested price of $59.99 USD for both the retail DVD-ROM version and the digital version sold directly from Blizzard.

Blender – Fully integrated 3D graphics creation suite

You can get an idea of Blender’s capabilities by listing some of the projects that have used it. For example, the makers of ‘Spiderman 2’ used Blender for 3D and character animation; it was used for the special effects in the film ‘Vendredi ou un autre Jour’, movies ‘Elephants Dream’, ‘Big Buck Bunny’, ‘Sintel’ and ‘Plumiferos’ a 3D CG feature film were made in Blender; as was the 3D game ‘Yo Frankie!’

Blender comes from the not-for-profit Blender Foundation. It is open-source, free to download and use but requires a considerable investment of time and effort from the serious user and rewards her with the flexible software and skills to model in 2 and 3D, animate, render and process images and videos to an award-winning professional standard. It includes related functionality: a game engine, fonts, motion capture and many, many more.

A good place to start is to become familiar with the interface which has been reworked in the recent version. Support comes in the way of texts, models and tutorials from the official website. A CMS gathers background information and lists many websites and groups maintained by Blender followers, (Blender Art Magazine, Blender Nation, and so on). If that is not enough a shelf of specialist commercial books offers guidance through the Blender product.

jalada chain reaction, the puzzle game that will spend your time

jalada Chain Reaction is an entertaining remake of a popular chain arcade puzzle game. All you have to do is to collect the color bubbles on the field by combining them into chains to enter the next level, and create the longest chain ever. All these along with various rewards will make you solve the level in a faster way.

To do this, the player has to press the mouse button on a bubble and drag the mouse over the surrounding bubbles of the same color. When all the desired bubbles are connected, the player has to release the button, and the chain will disappear. The player score points depending on the length of this chain. An 8-bubble chain will give more score than two 4-bubble ones, for example. So the player should always look up for the longest possible combination.

There are several targets of different types assigned randomly for each level. The targets are initially empty, but getting filled when the player is collecting chains of the corresponding type. A filled target disappears – so when all of them are gone, the level is won:

– Simple targets are the easiest to remove. Just collect any chains and fill the targets. Neither color nor the lengths of the chain are important.
– Numeric targets have a number in the middle. This number indicates the minimum length of chains the player have to collect in order to fill such a target. Color of chains is not important as well.
– Color targets are only filled if the player collects chains of the corresponding color. The length of the chain is not important.
– Fall targets are not supposed to be filled. Instead, falling items appear on the field, and the player has to let them reach the most bottom line of the field.

The mixture of easy control, quick to learn plus 100 unique levels makes jalada Chain Reaction a nearly never-ending game experience for the whole family and a pleasant way to spend your ‘free time’ at work.
