Call of Duty: World at War Interview with Tech Specs and More!

100°
327w ago - PCGH: What will be the base technology of Call of Duty: World at War? Do you as a new developer write a brand new engine from scratch of do you reuse many parts of the technology of Call of Duty 4? Why do you decide program a new engine/modify the existing technology?

Cesar Stastny: Treyarch has worked on various games during the last decade so we had our own engines, including the one on which all the Spiderman games were built. For Call of Duty: World at War, we chose the original Infinity Ward Call of Duty4: Modern Warfare engine as the base technology. Call of Duty 4 is widely considered the best cross platform game to date (Xbox 360/PS3/PC), so it is logical to consider its engine as the best next generation cross platform as well.

We chose it for its excellent lighting and game scripting. We enhanced the existing Call of Duty 4 engine with visual improvements, new effects, cooperative multiplayer, as well as using Activision's proprietary DemonWare technology for online, lobbies, matchmaking on PC and PS3 platforms which do not come with the equivalent of Xbox Live.

PCGH: Call of Duty 4 was developed cross platform and there were no major differences between the console and the PC version as far as visuals and other technical aspects is concerned. Will this be the case for Call of Duty:...
 

World of WarCraft: Level 70 is only the Beginning

50°
328w ago - Out of the ten million WoW players, less than five percent are interested or even aware of end-game content. Most players know that level 70 is the highest level that you can achieve; however, many of them don't know that level 70 is where the most interesting part of WoW begins.

Instead of gaining more experience to level, players work extremely hard to acquire better gear and items. This requires hours of dedication inside dungeons and on raids (a.k.a., much larger dungeons). Raids must be run well by leaders; otherwise, they fail.

Many people just think that end-game content takes too long to get; the end-game is just too hard, takes too much effort.

On top of that, the gear that drops comes in small amounts, meaning only a few members of the party will get anything for all the effort expended in any particular raid. Party members must show up on assigned raid times and follow organized, detailed instructions.

A single mess up from any member of the party can kill the entire group and force everyone to start over. This is just too frustrating for a lot of players, and is even frustrating for existing, hardcore players. Those existing players often call WoW more a job than a game.

Blizzard is toying with the idea of making the end-game easier through The Wrath of...
 

World of Warcraft pedophile stole teen girl

50°
329w ago - A man who convinced a 15-year-old girl he met on the Internet to fly to Melbourne and meet him has been convicted of child stealing. Anthony Taylor, 31, of Horsham, sent sexual messages to the Tasmanian girl while they engaged in the multi-player online game World of Warcraft.

As the relationship grew the pair also spoke on the telephone. When the girl's father found out about the relationship he confronted Taylor on the game telling him he would kill him if he touched the girl.

In spite of this Taylor bought the girl a flight to Melbourne and deposited money in her bank account so she could get a taxi to the airport. He was arrested as he waited for the girl to arrive at Melbourne Airport.

When confronted by police he admitted buying the girl's airline ticket and said he "thought the age could be a problem''. Taylor pleaded guilty to one count of child stealing.

The court was told Taylor has previously been found guilty of having a relationship with a girl under 16 whose child he fathered. He is currently in a relationship with a 27-year-old woman from the US whom he met online.

In sentencing Taylor Judge Susan Pullen said it was "troubling'' Taylor had again become involved with a girl under 16. "The facts in this case are disturbing,'' Judge Pullen said....
 

Call of Duty: World at War First Look for PS3

100°
330w ago - I'm sure that every PS3 player (even Xbox 360) are looking forward to the release of the next in the CoD series, which is Call of Duty: World at War...

The developers of the game stated that this game is unique compared to their early releases. The campaign will revolve around the pacific side of the world, and then the story will obviously take place there.

And of course, watch out for some new weapons and features of this game.

To quote: Last year's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was more that just a great game. It took a series that made a name for itself under the rich tapestry of World War II and pushed it some 60 years into the future. The end result was a game that used the latest advances in weaponry, in a setting influenced by some of today's most tense conflicts, to produce an experience both stirring and refreshing.

Since then, the big question on everyone's mind has been this: What will they do with the fifth Call of Duty? The answer, we know now, is a return to World War II. But rather than a step backward, Call of Duty: World at War is shaping up to be a unique take on this familiar timeline. With part of the campaign set in the often-overlooked Pacific theatre and plenty of inspiration drawn from Modern Warfare--both technical and creative--developer Treyarch is aiming...
