You knew it was coming; the first trailer for Uwe Boll's doomed-to-be-cheesy Far Cry movie has been released into the wild, and we don't mind saying it looks pretty bad. But is it bad enough to be entertaining? Superstar actor Till Schweiger (yes, he's named after a cash register) takes up the Jack Carver role, fighting on an island against an army of genetically modified soldiers and an Englishman who's - surprise, surprise - really evil.
Bethesda's Daryl Brigner is at it again. Last year the Fallout 3 level designer created rock hard maps for Portal called Ren_Test1, Ren_Test2, and he's now gone and made, yep, Ren_Test3.Shouldn't he be designing the levels for Fallout 3? Not unless all his work on the RPG sequel is complete of course. Well, that or he never, ever sleeps...Anyway, we've not tried Ren_Test3 ourselves yet, but apparently it's not quite as evil as its
Yesterday our jaws were left stuck to the floor after watching the Far Cry 2 tech demo showing off the incredible capabilities of the engine. Today, we've been granted five new screens.
Better-looking than Crysis? Take a look at these shots and decide for yourself.

If this new tech video is anything to go by, Far Cry 2 will be one of the most realistic-looking games so far:
This footage is a very brief taster of what the graphics engine behind the new Far Cry sequel can do. Set in Africa, the trailer shows a stunning level of detail in the environment and some impressive lighting affects.
Picture how nice it'll render the explosions when you shoot a zebra with a rocket launcher.

Expansion content for Fallout 2 apparently originally planned for release by Interplay and Black Isle Studios has debuted via a fan project.
"You will find about six new locations (some quite large, other smaller) as well as a few new areas to old locations.

In one of its traditional ten-minutes-'til-home-time press releases, Ubisoft has revealed that the sequel to Far Cry will be coming to Xbox 360 and PS3 as well as PC.
The Africa-set follow-up recently saw a month delay, putting its release back to March - though from what little we've seen of it so far we'll be impressed if it even makes it out that early.
It's nice to see that home consoles at least aren't getting a watered-down port this time around (not that Instincts was at

Gaming is an up and down experience. Some years cram top quality titles into our every orifice until were bursting with videogame joy and have excess polygons dripping messily out of our ears, while some other years… Well, some other years are 1983.
In 2007 though, weve had a very good year indeed. A scarily good year in fact. One which has provided us so much brilliance on every format that its a genuine worry that the laws of karmic balance will soon bring us a plague
