Pricing and exact release details to be confirmed in the next few weeks so stay tuned

The Saboteur is Available Today for PS3, Characters Detailed

100°
259w ago - Today Tom French, Lead Designer of The Saboteur, has shared some background details on the PS3 game's characters via the PlayStation Blog.

To quote: [Register or Login to view links] is actually out today!

I am truly excited that it's finally available and you can all play it now. Today, I want to talk about the different characters in The Saboteur.

Because the game is very story driven, it was extremely important to us to have a good solid cast of characters for Sean to interact with along the way while trying to get revenge on Dierker (if you're confused by what all that means, see my previous posts).

Our mantra for creating our cast of characters was "everyone has a problem." This was important because it meant we had to create back stories for all the characters to give them grounding and purpose in the world of The Saboteur. While we have a lot of different characters in the game, there are some really key players you should know about.

Jules - Jules is one of the most important characters in the game because his death is the ultimate motivating factor for Sean's romp across occupied France killing Nazis. It was a big risk to take to count on delivering Jules as a character. We hope the player likes him so...
 

New Gigabyte AMD 333 PC Motherboards Are Detailed

400°
260w ago - Gigabyte is [Register or Login to view links] 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,...
 

Developer Diary #3: The Saboteur for Sony's PS3 is Detailed

100°
263w ago - Lead Designer Tom French has detailed the third installment from their developer diary on The Saboteur for Sony's PS3 today.

To quote: I just got back from my little world tour (San Francisco, London, Moscow, whew!) showing off The Saboteur's open-world/sandbox gameplay and perks system, so I figured this might make a good topic to add to my developer diary series on The Saboteur for PS3.

One of the reasons we built a scaled down version of Paris was to make sure we could create a world filled with stuff to do. Every block of Paris has content in it; in fact, it's not just Paris but our entire world is filled with plenty of stuff.

So what is all this our world is filled with? The Nazi occupation, which includes things like sniper towers, AA guns, Nazi tanks, SS generals, propaganda speakers, search lights, radar dishes, and more. These occupation targets are like a collections mechanic, but instead of passively finding these things in the world and walking over them, you're blowing them up.

There are roughly about 1300 of these spread throughout our entire game, so you see I wasn't kidding when I said every block has content in it. You also earn contraband for destroying these Nazi objects, which is our currency in the game because money was worthless during the...

Fans can look forward to playing God of War and God of War II in stunning HD just a couple of weeks from now as the God of War Collection will officially be shipping to a retail store near you on NOVEMBER 17! Oh wait... there's more... we're also here to unveil all of the trophy goodies you have been waiting for!

To give you the low-down on how the trophies were picked, here is some insight from God of War III Design Director, Todd Papy...

Other than all the visual improvements that we added to the God of War Collection, the most exciting part for me was the opportunity to go back and add in full trophy support for both games.

Not only will the trophies hopefully be an enjoyable way to check your progress through the game, but they will also give the hard-core God of War fans some serious additional bragging rights. And on a more personal level, the trophies were a really great...
