Upcoming Video Games


Summer...no school, too hot outside to go play some basket or ride your bike, so this should be the best season for gaming, right? There's only one thing missing - new games. Is it? Obviously, not, because a lot of interesting games have been released, or at least announced, lately, and now we'll talk about the upcoming video games for all platforms!

Starcraft 2 Screenshots


Remember Starcraft? If you missed it so far, go and get it now, because this is one of those games you must NOT miss. Anyway, leaving Starcraft aside, we should talk about Starcraft 2, its sequel. First announced over a year ago, on the 19th of May, 2007, Starcraft 2 is under development for Windows and Mac OS X, but the release date is still uncertain. Anyway, leaving the release date aside, we have some new screenshots!


Since some of you may be new to Starcraft, I should say that Starcraft 2 "continues the epic saga of the Protoss, Terran, and Zerg. These three distinct and powerful races will clash once again in the fast-paced real-time strategy sequel to the legendary original, StarCraft. Legions of veteran, upgraded, and brand-new unit types will do battle across the galaxy, as each faction struggles for survival."

The feature list displayed on the official Starcraft 2 website goes like this:

- Fast-paced, hard-hitting, tightly balanced competitive real-time strategy gameplay that recaptures and improves on the magic of the original game<-180x150 Small Rectangle - right->
- Three completely distinct races: Protoss, Terran, and Zerg
- New units and gameplay mechanics further distinguish each race
- Groundbreaking single-player campaign
- Vibrant new 3D-graphics engine with support for dazzling visual effects and massive unit and army sizes
- Full multiplayer support, with new competitive features and matchmaking utilities available through Battle.net
- Full map-making and scripting tools to give players incredible freedom in customizing and personalizing their gameplay experience

At last, I should add that specific system requirements are not yet available, but it's good to know that Blizzard is working to ensure compatibility with a wide range of computer parts, including older DirectX 9 video cards. Other than these...I guess we should keep waiting, but one question arises: are we going to get Starcraft 2 first, or Diablo 3?

Drift City News


Ever heard of Drift City? Well, it's never too late! While some may consider this game's handling and graphics to be at least strange, Drift City, also known as Skid Rush in Korea, managed to be a unique game, by combining the features of a RPG game with an arcade racing game. There's a story, your driver will gain levels, and while doing this, faster cars will become available. Anyway, today it's not about the game as a whole, because the news is that Drift City just got a new car...


...but before talking about the URe3, pictured above, I should mention a few things that will surely be interesting to those that are not playing it yet. First, you should know that Drift City runs well on older computers, a processor clocked around 1.5GHz, 512 MB of memory, and a GeForce FX 5200 or a Radeon 9200 card, and even most onboard graphics chips are supported. Unfortunately for those using Linux or Macs, there's only a Windows version of the game, but the good part is that you can download it and play it for free without having to worry about spending any real money, although some premium items can be only purchased with real cash.

According to the official press release, "Armed with the fastest speed and acceleration stats in its class, the URe3's well-balanced speed and boost stats make it the best vehicle in the game's straight-away tracks. The car is available for purchase solely through the in-game dealership, and can be bought using Mito - Drift City's currency."

The problem is that beginners won't get their hands on this beauty, because only level 41+ drivers can get the URe3, and not even all of them, but only those having the 150,000 Mito required...
