Activision's ShadowForce 'Razor Unit' Amazes - Screens

by Rainier on Feb. 4, 2002 @ 12:15 a.m. PST | Filed under News

Shawdowforce "Razor Unit" is a new First Person Shooter (FPS) from Activision Value. Usually the Value brand brings what it stands for ... budget games. A few days ago the demo got released and, being a big CS fan, I decided to give it a whirl. For a budget title it is pretty well done and has a promising multiplayer aspect with deathmatch, CTF and team deathmatch .. the demo only has 1 single player map and 2 multiplayer maps so limited playability, but what i saw simply kicks ass .. nice range of weapons, smooth play ... ill be getting this one as soon as i see it!

GTA 4 Massive Multiplayer?

by Thomas on Feb. 3, 2002 @ 5:33 p.m. PST | Filed under News

Shacknews reports that Grand Theft Auto fans won't go long without another fix of wanton violence and pillaging. GTA3 Xbox is a given (with online play?), but we'll also soon hear the details on GTA4. Rockstar's stayin' silent on the subject, but I could name a few hundred thousand fans ready to part with $50 a piece for it. The current talk indicates that DMA will take the GTA3 framework and turn it into a massively multiplayer online game for the four installment, where you're free to create your own mobs and anyone in the city could be a "real" person. Word is it'll also be set in a real U.S. city this time.
