The Friday Reload

December 05, 2008


Company of Heroes FREE!


Boy, this week has gone by fast and furious here at FilePlanet. We recently launched the Closed Beta for Codename: Panzers Cold War - which despite some of my reservations really turned out to be a cool game. The game is now completely open to all non-paying standard FilePlanet users, so grab a key while we still have some left.

GoGoRacer also launched Thursday, it has that whole Trackmania-like arcade racing feel to it and I'll be playing it more this weekend. And last but not least, Company of Heroes FREE for new users and people renewing subscriptions. Nothing needs be said about the awesomeness involved there.

Wednesday was the company Christmas party here in Costa Mesa, which was a whole lot of fun. It needs to be said that FilePlanet rocked the Jeopardy board and winning the final question. "Name one Atari 2600 game released by Fox." Take a second, think about it. There is a bunch of them, but we pulled into the winning spot by answering Alien. Below you can see the winning team.


FilePlanet Team FTW.

Also have you checked out the new trailer for Ghostbusters: The Video Game yet? I'm telling you, this game looks amazing. Many of the people in it are original actor's voices and it feels like it's a sequel created through the art of video game.

I know we are all jamming on our keyboards and button mashing bad guys - but do many of you guys still play D&D or Pen and paper RPGs? I'm curious what you guys think of 4th Edition. Let me know.

The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena

December 03, 2008

The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay was one of the best shooters of the last console generation as well as possibly the best movie related game ever made. It was the first Xbox game I ever bought.. twice (dog chewed up the first copy the day I bought it), and it was a fantastic and memorable experience. The PC release even improved upon an already great game with a handful of added bonus content and sharper graphics.

The developers at Starbreeze are at it again, but not with a new title, they are actually bringing the barely 4 year old game to a new console and PC generation by remaking and overhauling the original Riddick title. The game is still pretty by most standards today, but Starbreeze is completely revamping and upgrading the graphics to make it look tip top for even today's lofty standards. The new upgraded package promises to include the entire original game + graphical enhancements, as well as a new chapter to the story that will add a solid 10 hours to the singleplayer campaign (which should effectively more than double the original game length), new weapons and enemies, and top everything off with a newly added and fully featured multiplayer mode.

This isn't just a remake, but a complete re-imagining of an already classic title. If the developers are able to make this game any better then it already is, it should be an instant buy for any shooter fans, and the massive amount of new content should assure that a re-buy from folks that have already played the game will be money well spent.

I for one am excited about the prospect of buying this game for yes a third time to not just replay an upgraded classic, but to also enjoy a deeper look into the Riddick universe with the bountiful new content.

Play the original, The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, PC demo by clicking here.

Check out the hi-def trailer for the remake, The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena here.

Back to Black Mesa...

December 01, 2008

In an endeavor to make most mod teams quiver in fear, the Black Mesa team is creating a mod of gigantic proportions. Utilizing the Source engine of Half-Life 2, they are not only porting the classic Half-life over - but adding new art detail, level design and code features.


Watch the new HD Trailer!

So once more you'll visit the tram that took you on your journey to the complex, and meet all those friendly scientists - one of whom you'll burn his lunch in the microwave. And then you'll descend into your suit and undertake the full game but in new vivid detail with a new musical score.


Watch the new HD Trailer!

Keep your eyes peeled for this gem, it's looking absolutely amazing.
