Battlefield 2142 Update


A game designed primarily for multiplayer slaughter, with up to 64 players allowed on a server, as well as 16 players in single player mode against bots, Battlefield 2142 will be 2 years old this October, but it doesn't show any signs of getting old. On the contrary, back in early March, 2007, EA Games released the Northern Strike booster pack, including new maps, unlocks, and vehicles. Today, the time has come for an update to the game, bringing the current version up to 1.50.

Prince of Persia 2008


Prince of Persia is one of those game franchises that always managed to stand out of the crowd, and - at least to me - all the games from the series were great. In the Prince of Persia trilogy, Princess Farah had no effect on gameplay, but now, Ubisoft Montreal wants to change this, by adding Elika to the game, the Prince's female cohort. If you want to know more...just watch the great trailer available below!



<-250x250 Square - left->Didn't you get it yet? Well, here's the short story - our Prince finds himself in a beautiful oasis, after being lost in a sandstorm, but this beauty is only an illusion. An evil spirit, Ahriman, breaks free from his prison and begins corrupting the outside world, but this time the Prince won't fight alone - Elika, one of the last remaining Ahuras (the guardians of Ahriman's prison), is going to stand by his side.

Obviously, all the above is just the beginning, but since there's some time left until we get to see this game on our computers, the new Prince of Persia game is just another item added on my "wait, seek and purchase" list...

Empyrean Age


Eve Online, update. Free update, to be more precise. That's the topic, and it doesn't need any other introduction. Are you ready to find out more about it?

Empyrean Age


Expected to arrive on the 10th of June, Eve Online: Empyrean Age will be offered as a free download to subscribers via the Eve Online website.

<-125x125 Button - left->Other than that, you should check the official features page, and if you really want to get inside the Eve Online universe, grabbing Tony Gonzales' novel, Eve: The Empyrean Age, may be a good idea.

These being said, I hope you'll find Eve Online to be a pleasant experience, since those hundreds of thousands of players inside the universe already can't be wrong...can they?
