Franchise Re-booted with New Development Teams, New Soldier, New Setting

Guildford, UK - December 2, 2009 - Medal of Honor™ returns to the front lines, this time in today's war. For the first time in the franchise's 10-year history, Medal of Honor is leaving the WWII theatre and putting players in war-torn Afghanistan.

Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) today revealed that in 2010, Medal of Honor, an all-new first-person shooter game, will introduce the Tier 1 Operator: a relatively unknown entity directly under the National Command Authority who takes on missions no one else can handle.

The development team has been working closely with Tier 1 Operators from the US Special Operations Community since the earliest stages of development to create...
 

Video: New Super Mario Bros. Unpatched on Nintendo Wii Wode

229w ago - This weekend wodedev has shared a new video showcasing the New Super Mario Bros. running unpatched on the Nintendo Wii via Wode.

To quote: Back to back testing of NSMB from a DVD backup (4.7GB ISO) and a WBFS formatted SD card (350MB). The ISO used in both Wodes is unpatched, the BCA data fix is handled by Wode.

Slipping into December is disappointing but Wode hardware has to be perfect before we will let it ship. Some missing tracks meant a PCB respin & we took the opportunity to improve connector placement.

By way of compensation there's a new video of two Wodes playing NSMB back to back. These are pre-production Wodes & have a couple of wire fixes on the main board

The Wode on the right is in "Flat Mode" & NSMB is running from a back up disk. ISO size 4.7GB. The Wode on the left is running NSMB from an SD card formatted with WBFS. WBFS image size 350MB.

No ISO was patched during the making of this movie




 

New Gigabyte AMD 333 PC Motherboards Are Detailed

400°
229w ago - Gigabyte is readying three new PC motherboards for the latest AMD platform, featuring '333' onboard acceleration.

As it was said, the new tech consists of the latest connectivity: USB 3.0, SATA III (6Gbps). The other '3' is for the fact the motherboard can supply up to three times the rated power of a standard USB port.

To quote: Gigabyte has now put online the complete specifications about these three upcoming motherboards. Despite them resembling the MA790FXT-UD5P, the MA790XT-UD4P and the MA770T-UD3P, one may notice many new features.

First of all, on the high-end model, there are now three PCI-E x16 slots instead of only two, so three videocards can now be set in CrossfireX, running in x16, x8, x8 mode. Having only two PCI-E x16 slots is a big disadvantage to the MA790FXT-UD5P when looking at boards like the MSI 790FX-GD70 having four of them, so this is great.

The next feature is 'Precision OV', which stands for OverVoltage. This means all three motherboards are equipped with a hardware voltage control chip, bringing three main advantages:

• Provides more voltage control options for CPU, NB & memory than before
• HW linear real time voltage control,...
