Filefront Gaming Today News: 10 Games In Which Everyone Should Have Died At the End



Not many game end with main characters/player characters dying at the end. And, sometimes, when it does happen, everybody gets all pissed off about it (like Fallout 3). But some games would be massively improved if the protagonist(s)/everyone just ended up dead once all is said and done. And here are a few of them.

10: Left 4 Dead
09: Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2009
08: Driver: San Francisco
07: Halo 3
06: Lost: Via Domus
05: Tie Fighter
04: Fallout 3
03: Super Mario Land
02: Every Metal Gear Solid Game

Filefront Gaming Today News: 3D Mark 11 Trailers Shows Off The Future of Graphics



Futuremark’s Benchmarking tool 3D Mark 11 is looking pretty awesome. The tool tests visual capabilities for modern 3D video cards through a series of rendering and video tests. Well the latest “Demo” has just been announced. The “High Temple” demo is now on display. The program uses this scene to push DirectX 11 testing on enabled hardware.

Watch the video below to see just how far video graphics can go, especially when there is no gameplay or player choice to worry about.

Filefront Gaming Today News: Arcania: Gothic 4 Review



So Fallout: New Vegas came out this week, and on the same day, Spellbound released Arcania, the fourth game in the Gothic series. This invites an unfortunate comparison.

Positioning two action-RPGs directly beside each other is a great idea if the two games can actually compete, but while Fallout and Arcania are fundamentally different, their similarities do a lot to highlight Arcania’s shortcomings. And the more time one spends playing Arcania, the more those shortcomings stack up.

That’s not to say that this fantasy world action-RPG isn’t decent, because it is — but next to a game with full-blown characters and story such as that brought to mind by the word “Fallout,” Arcania falters. These are areas in which it just can’t compete.

Filefront Gaming Today News: BlizzCon: 2010 Dancing Man Breaks Leg During Competition



The first casualty of Blizzcon occurred Friday night as a dance-off competitor named Daniel, rocked out a little too hard and ended up breaking his leg. Daniel had been doing his best Undead male impersonation when he went down hard. He got back up and tried to continue but fell a second time and could not stand. Host Jay Mohr called for help and the injured man was carried offstage. “You can’t kill him, he’s already dead!’ quipped Jay Mohr as Daniel was taken offstage.

Filefront Gaming Today News: BlizzCon 2010: Cataclysm Features Revamped Classic Dungeons



Between the Cataclysm expansion on Dec. 7 and Blizzard’s next big content patch for World of Warcraft, patch 4.1, there are going to be a lot of improvements to several classic dungeon layouts to make them less rigorous and tiresome.

Blizzard’s Lead Content Designer Cory Stockton and Lead Encounter Designer Scott Mercer used a panel at BlizzCon 2010 Friday to talk about the time they’ve spent revisiting old dungeons in the game, identifying problems, and working to create a better experience — mostly by doing what Mercer described as “Cutting out The Suck.”

The changes generally boil down to cutting dungeons up into “wings,” or thematically similar smaller dungeons rather than one big, irritating dungeon. They’ve also gone back and hacked out pieces of long and confusing dungeons where not a lot is happening, both to limit the time it takes to explore them, and to make the experience more even.

Filefront Gaming Today News: BlizzCon 2010: Diablo III “Demon Hunter” Class Hands-On Preview



When Blizzard officially unveiled the Diablo III Demon Hunter class earlier this morning (along with PvP zones), I sent my not-at-BlizzCon colleague Phil Owen a rather colorful, excited text message about it. Go give it a looksee. It’s pretty accurate, if a bit boyish.

Now that I’ve spent a couple of hands-on hours with the Demon Hunter, attended a developer panel about it (recap post coming later), and had some time to reflect and cool down, let me try describing Diablo III’s 5th and final class:

The Demon Hunter specializes in ranged attacks, but she’s extremely fast on her feet. She dual-wields crossbows (hell yeah), which have a quick rate of fire and can chop down foes in a few hits from a very safe distance. When surrounded, she can use an ability called “Vault,” which is an acrobatic, shadowy somersault-looking dodge, which covers a
pretty insane amount of ground, putting her well out of the fray.

Filefront Gaming Today News: BlizzCon 2010: Metzen says WoW movie going forward



The story for the World of Warcraft movie adaptation is “bitchin’.”

So said Blizzard Vice President of Creative Development Chris Metzen Friday at a BlizzCon 2010 panel on WoW Quests and Lore. He said the company has been having meetings with director Sam Raimi about the possibilities of the project.

Apparently the job now is to figure out where the WoW movie falls on Raimi’s list of projects and priorities, and, of course, get the official okay to make a movie out of the game. Although with 12 million subscribers worldwide, it seems kind of ludicrous to believe the film could be stalled by any concerns.

Filefront Gaming Today News: Blizzcon 2010: New Leagues for Starcraft 2 Multiplayer



So you’ve finally climbed all the way into the diamond league. You’re at the top of the heap. No one can call you a noob now, right? Well Blizzard has a surprise for you, in the form of two new leagues ABOVE diamond. That’s right, get ready to feel inferior all over again as you try futilely to claw your way into the “Master” or “Grandmaster” league.

I asked Starcraft 2’s lead artist Allen Dilling why the Starcraft folks want so badly to crush our self-esteem. He explained to me that it was less about crushing self-esteem and more about creating some really epic matches. Allen pointed out that there is a “big difference” between a high level diamond and a low level diamond. This is a point I tend to agree with him on, especially while getting owned by people with APM that is twenty or thirty times my own. So the idea here is to pit the really good players against other really good players, seems fair enough.

Filefront Gaming Today News: BlizzCon 2010: New WoW Cinematic for The Worgen



A new WoW cinematic was unveiled at BlizzCon on Saturday. The scene was the opening for the Worgen, who are going to be the new additions to the Alliance in Cataclysm. The Worgen are a werewolf species with the ability to transform into humans.

In the cinematic a mysterious stranger addresses a captured Worgen in a cage. The stranger implies that the Worgen had done some horrible things and deserved to be imprisoned. Shots of the Worgen running through the woods and being generally creepy help to emphasize this point.

Apparently, the humans who captured the Worgen believe it can be redeemed, the stranger on the other hand, isn’t so sure. This leaves us with one of two possibilities when you take control of the Worgen: Either you break out of the cage and go on a brutal killing spree (fingers crossed), or the humans let you out of the cage in some misguided attempt at rehabilitating you. I suppose a third possibility would be that you simply stay inside your cell and complete a lot of cage-based quests, like reflecting on your life and doing prison work outs.

Filefront Gaming Today News: BlizzCon 2010: Starcraft 2 Finals Recap



Starcraft fans at Blizzcon got a special treat on Saturday night as the final two contestants battled for a $25,000 prize in the BlizzCon Starcraft 2 invitational. Loner, the Terran player, had already defeated NexGenius in a best of three series. But the tournament was double elimination, which meant that Loner would have to beat the Protoss, NexGenius in another best of three in order to take home the prize money.

And so the stage was set, if Loner won this best of three it was all over. But if NexGenius could win the series he would force one last best of three (as Loner hadn’t yet been defeated) to determine a winner.

With the tournament on the line, Day 9 (of the famous Day 9 Daily) was on hand to commentate. As the game began, Day 9 told the audience that he was rooting for NexGenius, in the hope that he would get to commentate on a second series. The chosen map was Scrap Station, which meant the opposing bases were a short flight or a long walk away from each other.

Filefront Gaming Today News: Blizzcon 2010: Upcoming Starcraft 2 Mods



While there was no word on the upcoming Starcraft 2 expansion at the Blizzcon opening ceremony, there was some exciting news for Starcraft 2 fans. Blizzard has been hard at work on four new mods, which will be released one at a time before the “Heart of the Swarm” expansion comes out.



Aiur Chef (a parody of Iron Chef) is a mod that will have players taking control of a spatula wielding zealot with a pot on his head. Your mission is to hunt down different ingredients and cook up more point scoring dishes than your opponents. These games are eight way free-for-alls that will have you scouring a map fraught with peril just to bring home the bacon… er… Ultralisk. The catch is that the other “chefs” may just decide to chop you up instead of their entree.

Filefront Gaming Today News: Fable 3 Walkthrough



Peter Molyneux’s vaulting ambition knows no bounds. The British game designer is poised to outdo himself once again with Fable III, the latest entry in his series of epic, thought-provoking RPGs.

One emphasis this time around is dynamism, which has been fleshed out from the original game. Players’ appearance will change based on their good or evil actions, and the aspect of their weapons will changed based on how they are used and whom they are employed to kill. The emotions menu, a core element of Fable II’s gameplay, will now dynamically react to particular situations that arise between the player character and various NPC’s.

Filefront Gaming Today News: Fallout Online to Launch in 2012



Fallout Online has been under the radar for a while, except for that whole court case with Bethesda.

Interplay has been sending out some strange updates that appear to be from NPC’s in the game, and now they’ve confirmed to Edge Magazine that the game will release in late 2012.

While they aren’t releasing very much from the game, which Interplay president Eric Caen says is due to the aforementioned court case, he did say this:

I can’t say too much. What I can say is that everyone who is registered is getting a newsletter every five or six weeks. The content is not a typical newsletter with a lot of technical information; it’s letters from NPCs about what they’re experiencing.

Filefront Gaming Today News: God of War Collection Heading to PSN



God of War: Ghost of Sparta is heading to the PSP on November 2. Today we learned that more God of War goodies are also coming that day; November 2 is also the day that the God of War Collection will make its way onto the Playstation Network. No pricing info for the US yet, but this is good news probably for folks who haven’t picked this up on Blu-ray in the year it’s been out, because if Sony is on top of their game this will be cheaper than the physical copy.

Of course, NCAA Football 10 for the PSP is still $39.99 from the PS store, so maybe it won’t be cheaper. Sony’s announced European price for it — 17.99 euro for each game and 29.99 euro for the combined pack — doesn’t really inspire confidence that the digital copy will come in under the $29.99 price tag for the Blu-ray copy of the game. But I’m sure we’ll find out soon enough.

Filefront Gaming Today News: Huge Payday For Team Fortress 2 Community Contributors



In a press release sent out today, Valve stunned the internet gaming community with news that Team Fortress 2′s participation in Peer to peer Marketplace was a smashing success. Community members Rob Laro, Shawn Spetch, Steven Skidmore, Spencer Kern, and Shaylyn Hamm received HUGE royalties to the tune of $39,000 to $47,000 per person, for the original content they contributed during the initial round of content creation. Yeah, that’s a whole lot of scrilla.

PtoP Marketplace is a new set of tools and services community members can license for free from Steamworks. Team Fortress 2 was the first to make use of it, and unless $40,000 in royalties doesn’t sound like a lot of money, we all have to admit it was a good idea. From the release:

” Five Steam community members [who] participated in the initial round of content creation… received checks for the first two weeks of sales, with royalties ranging from $39,000 to $47,000 per person.

Filefront Gaming Today News: Lord of the Rings Online’s Producer Talks Future Update Changes



Lord of the Rings Online players wondering how things would change for them after the free-to-play relaunch can rest a little easier now. In her monthly producer’s note, Turbine’s Kate Paiz outlined some of the good news about the state of the game and outlined a bit regarding how the company will be adjusting its approach to further content expansion.

Turbine is moving away from the Book/Chapter updates which dominated the game since launch, often including huge storyline advancement along with game tweaks. Instead, the company will adopt smaller, non-story tied updates to allow more frequent content flow.

On the topic of updates, I wanted to let you know that we have shifted the way we think about our releases. In the past our updates depended on new Books being added to the Epic story. Going forward, updates will not always feature a new installment in the epic story line. By decoupling the Books from Updates we’ll have the flexibility to offer different types of new content and new features in each release.

Filefront Gaming Today News: NBA Jam Will Be out on PS3 and 360 In November



It looks like I wasn’t being liberal in my interpretation of Peter Moore’s use of the word “ship” in relation to NBA Jam on the Xbox 360 and PS3, because the game is getting a full retail release on those consoles on November 16. Yes, I said November 16, otherwise known as two weeks and four days from right now. And it’s going to cost $49.99 for a game that is only half-functional at launch.

EA basically admits in their press release that the game won’t be finished in time to hit that date. In their own words…

At launch, gamers will be able to take on all rivals playing Classic 2-on-2 online for the first time ever, measuring their success on Friends and Global Leaderboards. In December 2010, the online features for NBA JAM will expand significantly with several major online features being delivered through a free title update for connected gamers. In December, connected fans will be able to team-up locally and online to compete in Remix Games, including classic arcade hoop games like Backboard Smash, Domination Free-for-All, Elimination, and 21.

Filefront Gaming Today News: Serious Editor 3 Beta Is Available



It’s Press Release day on FileFront, and this time it’s Serious Sam fans and modders who need to take note: You’ve just been handed a chance to take an active role in the development of Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter. In a release put out earlier today, Croteam has announced that Serious Editor 3 Beta will be available for FREE via an update on Steam. Participants will be able to make their own single player, co-op or multiplayer maps, fill them with custom objects and buildings, and distribute them worldwide. Which is just wonderful.

We’re not the first to point this out, but we don’t care because it’s hilarious. Croteam giveth the trash talk:

Filefront Gaming Today News: The Witcher 2 May or May Not See a Console Release



Without question, The Witcher was one of my favorite games of 2007. This should have been blatantly obvious to anyone who read by giddy E3 preview of the upcoming sequel, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.

When we saw The Witcher 2, we were also told that the game would be releasing on PC, and maybe PS3 and XBox 360. Those console versions, much like CDProjekt’s previous console announcement Rise of the White Wolf, may now never see the light of day.

In a statement to Eurogamer, senior producer Tomasz Gop described the Witcher 2 on console as “potential,” and that it would not be likely that it would release alongside the PC version even it was was decided to make it. This is bad news for console gamers, but at least “potential” still holds out some hope.

Call of Duty: Message to all File Submitters - Credit your Peers!
To all members of the community, especially those that submit files to this site, either regularly or on an ad-hoc basis.

Over the last week I have received numerous emails about not just one mod, which was the 'New Weapons Mod' but another mod too.

I have answered all emails I have received on those mods, and those emails were about mods containing features of other mods that were not given correct credit, but simply put in the mod and made to be their own. I would first of all like to say that for those of the mods that I have recently deleted and developers I have contacted (you know who you are), you may have not done this intentionally but it is common practice in the modding community to credit others where you have used other peoples work.

The 'New Weapons Mod' has been deleted and some other mods too, which I do not want to mention but I do it during my 'mod stealing scouting runs' on the site. When I do those I email the authors first to make sure that they know what they have done and most do apologise and ask me to put the credits in, however those that don't get their files removed immediately.

I would also like to note that most of the developers that I find run into these crediting errors are new file submitters, this is why I take a lenient stance at first and try to explain to them how this modding community (and I'm sure all modding communities) work.

Flight Simulator X: What have we been up to this week?
This week i have been flying a Learjet 45 around the islands of Hawaii. It's been a welcome change from flying to large international airports in a Boeing 747-400, nice scenery shorter flights and more hands on flying.

I had a look online to see what aircraft are used to fly around these islands in real life. I came across an article on Wikipedia about Honolulu Intl Airport (ICAO: PHNL) that mentioned the use of Boeing 717's which I had never heard of, it appears this is because the Boeing 717 was marketed by McDonnel Douglas as the MD95...

After searching the net, I found one for fsx and i will be uploading it after this post..

Jedi Knight III: Site and Contest Updates!
Hey all, just a quick site update here. First off is a bit of a change to the File of the Week/Featured Files slots. As you will probably have noticed, sometimes we don’t get many files in a week and thus the FOTW and featured slots have the same files for two weeks. Rather than do this I think it is best in this situation to instead put up older files that may have been forgotten or are deserving of some attention. Various other sites do this, but JKFiles usually has enough new files per week so that we didn’t need to.

For those times that we don’t though, I will be putting some older files in those slots so we can still showcase excellent modding work that has been done in the past as well. Worry not if you are aiming for the File of the Week or Featured Slots with your mod, as new mods will still receive priority! For now I am going to put up a few files which should have been in those slots a month or two ago, but I wasn’t able to put up there because of the problems we were having with the site back end.

Left 4 Dead 2: Lone Gunman
So this weeks mutation on L4D 2 is Lone Gunman. Basically it is 1 player with a magnum against deadly hordes, boomers and the occasional tank. The hordes are deadly as well, 1 hit can take 30 of your life on normal so be careful not to get hit.

Now a new mutation doesn't normally get that much attention here except to report it but this new one has really caught my eye. This makes single player truly single player. No bots to help you and when you go down its back to the last safe room for you. This mutation shows a new side to L4D that I have always thought could have worked out well. You get a real sense of isolation and knowing that at any moment a horde could end you adds a nice edge to it.

Films like the Omega man and I am Legend pushed this sense of being alone inside a apocalypse and while L4D is only a game it still kind of picks up on that sense. You do have to turn around when you hear a noise, no more depending on the bots to take care of the odd stray zombie. I like this mutation but I also think that with some tweaks Valve could make a brilliant gametype out of this and make it a permanent. What do you think ? Is the SP element of this mutation worth working on ? Is it more creepy without the bots ?

Jedi Knight III: Katanamaru Backhand Styles
What are YOU looking at? Backhand sabers appear to be all the rage these days. Unlike most, however, this one ups the ante a bit with actual animations meant just for backhanded sabers. To start off, I'd like to point out something that wasn't made entirely clear in the readme: This mod is meant for Single-Player

Now, the actual animations aren't that bad, but there's clear and definite room for improvement. To start, I found the slashes to be veeery slow compared to their normal counterparts. Not only that, but attempting to use any of the single-saber stances result in not being able to move at all. Also, the block/deflect animations still act as if you were wielding normal sabers.

On the plus side, what the author did to the left/right lean animations was pretty clever. But then there's the cinematics. Well, to put it simply: Just skip them. Why? Because Jaden Galen simply stands there, no animation at all. Probably has something to do with how the backhand stance is achieved. But aside from that, this stance pretty much works. Only a hand-full of problems to deal with. You'll know if you want if, you backhanded addicts. stick out tongue ...Why are you still reading this? Seriously, you're creeping me out... -.o

Recently, there have been a few comments on the PotD's about Fleetops having phasers which were too thick. I decided to meet that demand.

Call of Duty 4: Toasty's Rebalancing Mod
This is a rebalancing mod, intended to make some of the weapons more effective against others. It features changes to recoil, ammo, firing rate, power, and a number of other things, with the intent of making some of the weapons more useful, especially the shotguns.

It does this rather well, increasing the range of the shotguns, making some weapons semi-auto, adjusting some rates of fire, and adding a number of other tweaks as well. If you think the game is unbalanced, this is certainly a nice place to start.

Halo BHR Crazy (0.4)
What we have for you today is basically a "god mod". This is the sort of mod where weapons are given a good kick in the rear, resulting in a very un-even multiplayer experience. Gone are the days when people would kill team-mates just because they were not quick enough to get the tank when spawning. Now, you just pick up a frag grenade, and hurl it at the unfortunate individual who decided that he doesn't really need a full health bar anymore, lol. big grin

Using this does give the fun of multiplayer a little boost, but if you are one of those people who prefers tactics rather than modding, then give this a go and see if it changes you from "Mr McBland" to "Sir Pwnage". As always, temporary link to evade those server glitches. Those glicthes are as annoying as the Elites on Cairo Station, in Halo 2, on Legendary difficulty.

Jedi Knight III: Jedi Outcast Sounds & stuff
Since this is basically a half-hearted attempt, I'll just let this part speak for itself:

This is a mod that brings the old sounds from JK2 back in Jedi Academy.

It doesn't replace anything, but if you want them to replace the JA sounds, well then comment or e-mail me or something, and I'll make them replace the JA sounds. This also brings back the Galak_Mech model, and the ol' Minemonster model from JK2. It's a bummer that you can't play either one of them in MP, but I guess you can still have fun in SP! This is a mod for the sounds from Jedi Outcast, + the Galak_mech and Mine monster models.

However, the Galak Mech will more than likely be missing his antenna and force field, since Jedi_HM2 did not include the materials for them. Everything else is pretty much just a full out swipe from the assets pk3s. You'll know if you want it.

Medal of Honor: Z-Shotgun
Z-Thompson Converts your Thompson Sub-Machine Gun into the Thompson Automatic Shotgun. While I have changed the skin slightly, the credit for this weapon still belongs to EA Games. This weapon fires at a rate of 700rpm and never needs to be reloaded. The recoil has been removed and a zoom or (scope) has been added for sniping. The range and damage has been increased to levels that make it awesome. It will take out trucks and the half track, so you won't need to worry about the bazooka anymore, unless your taking out a tank. I used the Thompson this time because the sound file works in every map and it seems to get along well with others. I don't want anything for the hours I've spend making this mod and ask only that you enjoy it and have fun with it. This is the newest updated version of this weapon. Changes were larger barrel on shotgun, no ammo bar, improved lettering on the model.

Company of Heroes: The Pass

About the file
Hawkeye is back with an update to his first map; "The Pass". Version 1.1 adds some additional passes on each end of the centre ridge, four new buildinds thrown into the mix for some stratagy, objects moved and added and finally some texture changes. As with the first version the map still contains the main road running through the centre as well as hills and trees used to add some variety.

Staff impression
Deffinatly an improvment over the first version with added textures and objects. Some buildings have been added to provide some cover for the footsloggers (that is until they get demolished stick out tongue) as well as a couple more passes in the ridgeline to entertain those of us who prefer a sneaky flank opposed to a more frontal assult. An expert or hard AI will keep things on the edge and a struggle the whole way, whatever your stratagy this map has it covered.

Halo Unlimited Ammo Map Pack
Hi Everyone!! This is a map pack for halo whith unlimited ammo! There are 7 maps inside (4 are bloodgulch varients).

The maps are: sidewinder, beavercreek (Battle Creek), bloodgulch, bloodgulch with homing rockets, bloodgulch with homing rockes and teleports, and bloodgulch with teleports

These maps can be used in any way as you like just remember to credit me. You can still join normal games with the modded maps still there. Though it is recommended to to swap the maps with homing rockets with one without unlimited rockets. If you don't, the rockets will look like they're homing, but they're not.

The zany realm of unbalanced multiplayer continues with this unlimited ammo pack. Obviously, having unlimited ammo in Halo is not as easy as typing in a cheat code, which is where this mod comes in. Aside from teleports, there isn't really a whole lot of difference in these maps from their default counterparts. That, and the fact that they have unlimited ammo weapons, lol. Traditional multiplayer fans will not like this. But if you are bored with multiplayer, and if you can find a server that hosts these versions of the maps, join it, and just have a good time.

Jedi Knight III: Bramble Gambol 2
I haven't seen much of his work, but when I saw the name "HiddenSpy" I was like "Oop, I know what this means." A little ways back, there was a map known as Brambol Gambol supplied to our site. It was basically the inside of a hollow thorn bush, with ten jumping-based challenges with varying difficulty. I decided to check out the older version before trying the new one. Suffice to say, these courses are HARD. Like, intensely hard. I've played old video games easier than these. Is this a bad thing? Hell no, it ain't. Why?

- All courses were tested thoroughly and proven possible over and over again. No course is luck, or randomly timed based. All can be done 100% of the time if your skill is up to the challenge.

Hiddenspy was prepared for skeptics, it seems. I can understand. This second version contains some whole new courses and a couple "reimagined classics," that translated from the first map. Each of them is pretty potent and very challenging. Basically, be prepared to die A LOT. Much like Authuran, I was able to completely like, one or two courses, and the rest I just epicfailed on.

Jedi Knight III: SJC Coruscant Adventures Pack (Night and Day)
Introduction
-------------------

Many moons ago, the thunderous echoes of previews of Sith-J-Cull's future maps made themselves known to us. There were many, there were cries of joy and bedazzlement...at least once a year, SJC has valiantly produced at least one map each year, each one's impact being the equivilant of getting a shotgun blast of awesome straight to your face, leaving a crater of glory in the aftermath.

Now normally Nozyspy handles SJC's maps, but...Caelum and I wish to punish him for his sloth and impertinence >:B so we are going to double-team this map in our own collective fashion, and the Hive will celebrate as our efforts result in the explosive joy of everyone's celebratory dances and offering tribute to this map.

Exteriors:
-----------------
Right, so, when it comes to the outside, this thing is big and pretty, in short.
First of all, I should probobably note that the outside feels a bit like a maze, especially at first. This isn't at all bad though, considering coruscant is supposed to be a confusing, massive, global city.
There were some very minor lightning problems here and there, but both the day and the night version had an awesome atmosphere to it. Tons of fancy details help with that - advertisement banners (screenshot #4), an awesome skybox, appropriate music and more.

Star Wars Battlefront 2: Rhen Var: Colony
Jerbot77 today makes his SWBFFiles debut with the map Rhen Var: Colony. It can be best described as a cross between Rhen Var: Harbor and Bespin: Cloud City.

Being that this is a first map, one can expect some flaws in the design. This map's design is well executed, but it is not a very good design for gameplay. One faction starts out with two command posts way away from the city, and must cross a completely open field to get into the city. The other faction has a whole lot of command posts and has a much better defensive position to hold off the invaders. The city is very large, too, and somewhat confusing to navigate. There are lots of circular routes and places that don't really seem to go anywhere, and it's not immediately clear how to get from one command post to another. The field, on the other hand, is very straightforward and clear- it's possible to get around the main fighting and slip into the city, but it's hard to do so due to the lack of cover. There are a huge amount of units on the field at once and there are a lot of reinforcements to burn through, so the largeness of the map is not really that much of an issue.

The map is constructed fairly well, however- objects are placed well and I didn't notice very many floating ones. There were some terrain cutting issues, though they were only in specific areas and not really in a main gameplay area. Although you may not think that a Bespin/Rhen Var cross would go over very well, it actually is a pretty decent matchup. The white and gray color schemes of both planets sort of mesh well, as compared to a Geonosis/Hoth crossover. There are also a lot of vehicles around the map- mainly flyers, but there are some tanks as well. The ceiling is set pretty high, so you have a lot of room to zip over the buildings and kill people from above.

Armada 2: KA Imperial Hawk BB
The Romulan Imperial Hawk Battleship was one of the most powerful warship in the Alpha quadrant ever and is also one of the least well known. To date Starfleet has never officially encountered one much less brought one to battle. Most data comes from Klingon sources and would generally be considered suspect except that each of the few accounts bears a remarkable similarity especially when one considers the Klingon penchant for embellishing stories of battle. Each one speaks of a truly massive and fearsome warship able to cloak and armed with Disruptors and 2 kinds of plasma torpedoes; 2 pair of R torps and 2 pair of G torps.

These accounts also confirm the presence and use of a Cohesive Fused Deuterium Irradiation Cannon (CFDID). Weapons like the CFDIC were known to Starfleet as they had seen similar weapons during the Earth Romulan War. Based on known Klingon sensor data the Imperial Hawk is 763m long and estimated to mass 5.5 million tons. Crew compliment is believed to be 680 men. Klingon encounters with the Imperial Hawk began in 2289 and ceased after 2324. The exact number built and the fate of these ships remains a mystery too this day.

Armada 2: KA Sword of Kahless BB
The Sword of Kahless is by far one of the largest Klingon warships ever built. Called the B11 by the Federation the replaced the B10 Bloodstalker Class battleships in the late 2280s. 686M long and massing more then 7.6 million tons he is a monster that was not surpassed in Klingon naval architecture till the Negh'var came into use. Disruptors and heavy photon torpedoes make up the ships main battery. This is supplemented by an assault phaser cannon and powerful shields. 770 Klingon warriors stand ready at all times to battle the greatest foes of the Empire but the SOK can support a full armor brigade of ground troops when needed but these are not permanently stationed on board.

Despite his mass he is much more maneuverable than either of his Federation contemporaries. Only the lack of a cloaking device mares the vessels specifications as the main reactor can't power the other systems and cloak a ship of this size using the available Klingon equipment. Expensive to build comparatively few ships of this class were constructed. The Empire however has goten a good return on their investment as members of this class survive and have continued to battle the enemies of the Empire through the dawn of the 25th century.

Armada 2: KA Yamato Class BB
Ah, the old fan favorite from Klingon Academy. I'm sure everybody that played KA remembers this ship none to fondly from unwittingly charging in for an honourable head to head challange in the finest traditions of the Empire... and soon afterwards desperately trying to run away while cloaked for some badly needed repairs after the Yamato blew through your shields like holograms and left your Dreadnought (Dread-being-in-front-of-the-Yamato more accurately, perhaps?) a crippled wreck. I once described this ship to a friend as a StarBase on thrusters, which I think was a reasonably accurate description. One of these ships is certainly capable of trashing a squadron of heavy cruisers.

In her era. (ie, TMP) However, if you are deploying her in the TNG era then after a hundred years of weapons development she is no longer the rampaging monster that she once was. Armed with her original weapons, she'll still easily see off Destroyers in some numbers. She might survive against a couple of cruisers simply by blowing one apart with assault phasers and then pounding it out with the second, but that's about it. She certainly doesn't want to be taking on a 24th century battleship. While she might manage to use her assault phasers to even things out enough to pound things out the odds of her winning aren't something most people would give you odds on, and if she did survive it then she's likely to need rather more than cosmetic attention by a shipyard afterwards.

Jedi Knight III: Jaskur, the biggest party saber
One of the annoying things about being a reviewer is the fact that you have to actually review stuff. Though sounding easy, this can actually be extremely difficult. For example - what do you say about a file, when you can sum it up with a mere three-or-so words, like, say, "Long saber, lol"?
Meet Jaskur, made by Jasku - a very long arbiter (saber single_1) hilt, that doesn't replace any other saber.
Whilst neither the longest one I've seen, nor something new, the sheer fact that it isn't Galen Marek or a Reborn makes me happy.
So, how long is this thing? Well, it spans right over the pit in FFA1 (Vjun), and then some. Before you think of using it to cheat though, remember the person owning the server you're playing on will need to put it on his server first for it to work wink

So, a long saber. Surely a must-have for anyone looking to compensate for something, no? wink

Star Trek: Legacy: Travis Class
Ahhh! that scary disc shaped phenomena from TOS has returned.... Oh wait, no it hasn't, its a new concept design from Zube1337. This is Zubes second modelling and modding attempt from the ground up and its fair to say its an improvement, this vessel, knowns as the travis class, is a slightly odd design of federation ship, but none the less, unique. The mesh is a cleaner attempt than zubes venture class, and while the textures are created in a sort of cartoon style, they still seem incomplete. so expect an updated version to come along soon.

Weapons wise, the vessel seems balanced for its size, but dont be expecting to take on the entire alpha quadrant with it. An improved attempt from zube.

It is just a floating saucer! No! If you viewed it from the top, it looks like just a saucer, however, when you look it to the sides and bottom, there's the nacelles and the boxy looking secondary hull. This is a second model built by me, and with illumination and no missing faces. I'd taken extra measures so that there would be no mistakes or missing a few parts. The ship is also a concept design, like the Venture class, however, with a slight difference though. For weapons, most has a full coverage arc, for phaser, not the torpedo launchers.

Star Trek: Legacy: Venture Class
Zube returns briskly with his 1.1 Venture class, now with added illumination and general retextures. Good Modelling skills only come with practice, and its fair to say zube is certainly practicing his. This latest version comes with a modified mesh. Attempting to fix errors in the previous mod. So constructive criticism to help him along here would be appreciated.

The first version lacks of lumination and there was a problem with the warp pylons. But now, this version has lumination, new design pylon(intent to be like Galaxy-class). Retexture the nacelles and the saucer section, because lack of the future Starfleet's insignia and logo for the Prototype variant. However, I am still trying to figure out putting the logos on the production variant, it seems tedious.

Star Wars Battlefront: Diet Dr. Pepper Republic
keenmike is here today with a fairly inventive mod for the original Star Wars Battlefront. This is essentially a graphical mod encompassing the Republic side, with a whole bunch of new unit and weapon models to play around with.

The mod features a lot of new models from the community, and a bunch of new weapon models are featured. Most of the weapon effects and animations are swapped around and edited, bringing in a very different visual experience. This mod's changes are all non-altering of the gameplay, which means that you can use it online with no worries about cross-compatibility. It really makes the game feel very different, and the new units, weapons, and animation swaps make it a whole new experience.

That part was only a joke big grin, since not many people even read this anymore frown and apparently in the current poll that I'm doing for BCFiles and GTA Files most of them think that the insider is "crap" Cry
