Gears of War Review

50°
351w ago - A year back when Gears of War (GoW) released on the XBOX-360, it was the best thing next to sliced bread and reviewers from every corner of the gaming empire waxed long and sweet poetries about it.

This year, Epic Games has gone another mile to extend their award winning masterpiece to the PC elite. Packing five new chapters in the campaign, new multiplayer content and an epic finale in the form of a boss fight, this game has created some serious concerns among many XBOX360 fans over the "incomplete" version they played yesteryear. How well does this bone crushing title play? Is it worth the delay and extra content to buy it on the PC? Hell, yea!!! Read on to find out more...

Marcus Fenix is back and you play as this ex-prisoner who's silent on the lips and ruthless on the gun. The story takes place fourteen year after an event called Emergence Day where a group of creatures called the 'Locust Horde' burst from the ground and launch a full scale invasion on an otherwise peaceful planet. In a desperate attempt to thwart the ongoing brutality, every person who calls himself a human is called to war for mankind's ultimate survival. Macus Fenix' body armor looks shinier than ever and we're praying solemnly that it would show up on Ebay someday like those 'Big Daddy' costumes of late. Shooting...
 

iPhone v1.1.2 breaks jailbreak -- coming to the UK on Friday

50°
351w ago - When we first got our hands on the UK iPhone back in September, it was already running the 1.1.1 firmware. The same firmware which helpfully bricked a number of hacked iPhones Stateside upon later release. Now T3 is claiming that the UK iPhone -- set for release on November 9th -- is kicking 1.1.2 under the glass.

Besides support for French and German keyboard layouts and characters, the other notable change is the shuttering of the TIFF exploit used to jailbreak and then install (and unlock) third party applications on the 1.1.1 iPhone and iPod touch. With the possibility that Apple might release 1.1.2 globally with the UK launch on Friday, consider yourselves warned.

It's not like there's a lot of incentive for you to update anyway (remember, it's optional) what with the latest jailbreak simultaneously exploiting and then plugging the TIFF exploit to keep your browsing safe. For whatever it's worth, the February SDK isn't too far away -- perhaps you should wait 'till then to get right with The Steve.
 

Warhawk 1.1 Patch Now Officially Available

50°
351w ago - The Warhawk 1.1 patch is now officially available for download. To get the latest patch, just launch your Warhawk game and you will be notified that the 1.1 update is available.

The download is about 8.2 megs. If you managed to get the patch before today's official release, when it was accidentally released, you'll find there are fixes to the "viral-rank-up" and the "time-in-vehicle stat".

To quote: Just wanted to make a quick post to let everyone know that the Warhawk v1.1 patch will be deployed world-wide on Friday, November 2nd, during an extended maintenance window between 5am and 9am Pacific.

Some of you were able to download the v1.1 patch before it was "officially" ready. Since this occurred without the server-side updates to complement it, not all of the fixes would have functioned. Specifically, the viral-rank-up fix and the time-in-vehicle stat fix. Once we bring the system back online Friday, 9am Pacific, these fixes will be functional.

Also, once we deploy the patch, when you boot Warhawk, you will be prompted by the XMB to download the v1.1 patch. This is a fast download so it's not a time killer. Once the XMB has pulled the patch down, Warhawk will boot back up and be happy! You will also notice a "v1.1″ in the lower right corner of the screen.
 

Warhawk v1.1 patch coming tomorrow!

351w ago - Warhawk developer Dylan Jobe has confirmed that the highly awaited Warhawk v1.1 patch will be released tomorrow November 2nd, sometime between 5am and 9am pacific time.

To quote: FINALLY! -- and Yes...I realize this was a loooong time coming :-P

We are going to be globally deploying the v1.1 during an extended maintenance window Friday, November 2nd between 5am and 9am Pacific.

To recap, here are the items addressed by the patch:

Server-side
* Stat database stability improvements
* Improved server stability
* Max Clan limit changed from 32 to 64
* Viral Rank-up bug fixed and correct for players that were accidentally ranked up.
* "Time-in-Vehicle" Stats fixed so certain awards can now be granted properly.

Client-side (this is the one that you will actually download to your PS3)
* Stat connection, fetch/post fixes
* Significantly improved client connection stability
* Quad "????" Ping display bug fixed.
* Added support for Player-Ranked Servers.
* Game synchronization fixes due to fluctuating network conditions (packet-drop).
* Crash fixes for end of game and split screen.

A couple of things that I want to point out. Some of you were able to download the v1.1 patch before...
