Turok For PC


Hunting is not one of my passions, but hunting dinosaurs is surely something many of us dreamed one day. Anyway, we're not going to talk about Jurassic Park here, because I have a subject that's going to keep you occupied for a longer time, that's for sure. Its name? Turok!

Turok 2008


<-250x250 Square - left->While the Turok character appeared in 1954, the first Turok game appeared 43 years later - Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, for the Nintendo 64 and PC. This game was followed by Turok: Battle of the Bionosaurs for the Game Boy, the same year, and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, in 1998. Since then, 3 more games in the series were released, but the last one gets back to the roots, being simply called "Turok."This year's Turok is available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, and the PC version has been officially announced by Touchstone yesterday. With a suggested retail price of $49.99, Turok for PC allows you to play with the mouse and keyboard or a game controller, and features a very interesting story-driven single player mode, as well as multiplayer gaming for up to 16 players.

"Fans of Windows-based PC games have been excited about the opportunity to experience Turok on their favorite platform. We are confident that Turok delivers a unique gameplay experience that will make their wait worthwhile," said Craig Relyea, senior vice president of global marketing, Touchstone.

Need I say more? The dream is over, now get your black ops commando boots, impersonate Joseph Turok, go to a mysterious planet in the future and start hunting dinosaurs!

Sims Offline


The Sims is the best selling PC game of all times, with a total sales number exceeding 100 million units worldwide, but that doesn't mean all products related to this franchise were successful. EA-Land, previously known as The Sims Online, is one of those products that didn't live up to the expectations...

The Sims Online


<-250x250 Square - left->... and now The Sims Online is turning into Sims Offline. A rebranding? No, because EA-Land is shutting down, so... no more Sims Online, from now on!Launched in 2002, The Sims Online went down almost instantly, but was relaunched by EA last year, as a free online game known as EA-Land, with an optional $9.99 subscription.

The official post on the EA-Land's blog says "EA-Land / TSO has attracted a very special group of players (of which you are one) and we certainly appreciate your participation in the EA-Land community. The lifetime of the game has drawn to an end, and now we will be focusing on new ideas and other innovative concepts in the games arena. We'd like to thank everyone who has taken part in this online community as a unique experience in the virtual world."

So this is it - another one bites the dust! If you were one of those that paid subscriptions for the game, you will either get a $15 off at the EA Store, or a 3 month subscription to Club Pogo. RIP, EA-Land!

GTA 4, Welcome!


Do I have to add anything as introduction? This time, I won't, because Take-Two's Grand Theft Auto franchise doesn't need any introduction! Now, the fourth game in the series is only a few hours away from the official launch, but first reviews already appeared, and Take-Two's shares have already started to move higher and higher!

Booth Tunnel in GTA 4
Probably you know it already, but I will give you a quick overview - GTA 4 is still set in Liberty City, but now the imaginary city has been redesigned, and there's no link with the previous Grand Theft Auto games. The action of the game spins around Niko Bellic, an Easter European who arrived in the US searching for the "American Dream," but he discovers that his cousin lied to him...

How do those early reviews sound? Well...

"Grand Theft Auto IV' is a violent, intelligent, profane, endearing, obnoxious, sly, richly textured and thoroughly compelling work of cultural satire disguised as fun," writes the New York Times.

I guess that, and the fact that the GTA 4 versions for PS3 and Xbox 360 versions got almost perfect scores in the reviews so far, should be enough to make one interested about this game, as long as they are older than 17, since the game's rating doesn't recommend it to the younger ones, and I wouldn't recommend it either.

Anyway, it's good to see that things are moving in the right direction for Take-Two, after EA Games tried to buy them ahead of this game launch. If you manage to grab this game before we do, please take your time and share your experience with us, we're really interested in hearing from you, so don't be shy and hit the Submit Comment button, once you're done writing the story!
