MechWarrior: Living Legends for PC

362w ago - Perhaps it's no wonder MechWarrior landed on its feet in this mod for Crysis, given the size of their giant metal hooves. The closure of developers FASA Studio in 2007 should have spelled doom for the duelling droids.

But keeping an army of stompy robots down isn't so easy, especially when the BattleTech fanbase stands at an estimated 25 million, some of whom carry Crytek business cards.

Like the Battlefield games, Living Legends is large-scale multiplayer combat with vehicles, but here the 'vehicles' are Mechs: gigantic walking weapons platforms. Part FPS and part sim, its mix of mechanised combat and soldiery brings it closer than ever to the complete BattleTech package - the MechWarrior universe established by the tabletop rulebooks of the '80s and '90s.

The gist of it is this: if you're caught in open terrain by a Mech, you're crab meat. Lure one into the confines of city streets, however, and it's a whole other story. Imagine guerrilla tactics versus 17 storeys of motorised steel. Or taut ground/air battles which swirl around a single pair of epic units.

Or spawning 20km out from the heat of battle, towering over the distant hills, wrapped in the contrails of air-to-air missiles. Living Legends already promises maps of up to 64km2.

Much of it does sound a bit...

It's over, Paramount gives the final blow to HD-DVD!

363w ago - Paramount is poised to drop its support of HD-DVD following Warner Brothers' recent backing of Sony's Blu-ray technology, in a move that could sound the death knell of HD-DVD and bring the home entertainment format war to a definitive end.

Paramount and DreamWorks Animation, which makes the Shrek films, came out in support of HD-DVD last summer, joining General Electric's Universal Studios as the main backers of the Toshiba format.

However, Paramount, which is owned by Viacom, is understood to have a clause in its contract with the HD-DVD camp that would allow it to switch sides in the event of Warner backing Blu-ray, according to people familiar with the situation.

Paramount is set to have a bumper 2008 with several likely blockbusters, including the latest instalment in the Indiana Jones franchise, slated for release.

Paramount joining the Blu-ray camp would leave HD-DVD likely to suffer the same fate as Sony's now obsolete Betamax video technology, which lost out to VHS in a similar format war in the 1980s.

Warner's decision last week to throw its weight behind Blu-ray saw it join Walt Disney, 20th Century Fox and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer as backers of the Sony format.

The Warner move gives Blu-ray about 70 per cent of Hollywood's output, although the format's...
