We’re not going to go through the whole team, this page and the last are just to show a bit of a demonstration montage, then show a few of the main characters, and scene.
The radio show didn’t happen again. At this point just pay attention to this space or the facebook or twitter accounts, if it looks like it will go down I’ll update on all 3, but I probably won’t know till late on Saturday.
Fans of superhero novels should be pleased by quite a few sequels coming out. Two of my favorite series have updates. Wearing the Cape has Young Sentinels, and Kid Sensation has Extraction (which is just a short story but it’s still good and hey, it’s only $.99. I’ve finished both and they’re great. Currently I’m reading The Trials of Renegade X, then it’s on to The Impostor #2: The Blood Machine, while we wait for the sequel to Confessions of a D-List Supervillain. I’m not so insecure to admit that I also really enjoyed Confessions author’s other novel, Rider: Spirals of Destiny, even though it was about tweenage girls riding battle unicorns. I would also be pleased with a sequel to that.
In other nerd news, any PC gamers that like FPSs should really check out the new Shadow Warrior game. I’ve been playing it a level at a time when I get a little time in the evenings and it’s really fun. Since it’s PC only, it’s looks REALLY good. Not to diss on the console platforms, but the hardware in them is 8 years old at this point, and Shadow Warrior takes advantage of the power of a decent gaming rig. The use of color in the game, and the high res textures really impressed me. I was walking through a cave in the game and just stopped and stared at the wall for a bit. It’s been a long time since I’ve been impressed with textures in a game. (Mostly because of memory constraints in consoles, and nearly every game is built for consoles first since they’re the lowest common denominator, then ported to PC) Thankfully the next gen consoles have a lot more RAM, so that will improve quite a bit in the next few years.
Shadow Warrior runs like lightning on my machine, and it’s almost 5 years old (with an nVidia 660 ti I put in at the beginning of this year). It’s made by ex-Painkiller people, and those guys definitely know their FPSs. They put out another PC only shooter a while ago called Hard Reset, and Shadow Warrior uses an iteration of that engine. Hard Reset has a demo on STEAM, so if you’re worried your machine can’t handle it, grab that demo and check it out.
