Perfect MMORPG

Which MMORPG fans did not dream of a perfect online role-playing game, where everything would be done well and right? It is good that sometimes there are daredevils who are not limited to only dreams.

Gavan Woolery, the author of the Genesis project, conceived something truly extraordinary: a massively multiplayer online role-playing game where a considerable part of the content would be created by the players themselves, and the word “role-playing” would be returned to its original meaning.

Perfect MMORPG

Genesis is currently in an early stage of development, but something of interest has already been done. Firstly, these are the outline of game mechanics, and secondly, a significant part of the graphics engine.

Nitro Family

What is Nitro Family? More precisely – who is it? – since we all now know that in the real world this is such a single-disc game on our shelves (now it seems to be available as a licensed one as well) 🙂 Nitro Family is such a comic book family. Like the Addams family – just simpler, smaller, more cowboyly. They have a completely different style – as if Duke Nyukem was from the backwoods and married a robber stripper and had a son – not quite a young cannibal, of course, but something like that.

V-Rally 3

Western observers in whose hands the Xbox version of the third V-Rally has fallen are generally enthusiastic about it and find it indecent to put the game on a par with such rally masterpieces as the latest Colin McRae Rally and Rallisport Challenge (although they do not deny certain problems that are still present in VR3). We would like to approach this issue somewhat more carefully.

We take this opportunity to remind our readers of rally racing in general and of these two outstanding masterpieces in particular. Projections of such a phenomenon as a rally into the space of virtual entertainment will always exist – because this race includes, probably, almost all other subspecies of the races (except for horse racing and flying car competitions :)). Rally involves training in the “driver” communication skills with the car in the most diverse, most extreme combinations of Continue reading
