Dino D-Day looks nice!

Dino D-Day looks nice and pretty! Servers are a bit empty though. I came across one player who logged in as a dinosaur but he couldn’t get me because I was on the roof of a shed. Neither could I get him because my rifle didn’t seem to do any damage.

He logged in a few minutes later as a Nazi and I got my first kill after I followed him around for a bit.

With players this could be a great game, I played the market level and it felt very varied and graphics were gorgeous.

I wonder if they’ll get the players?

Dino D-Day: Nazis and Dinosaurs!

This Half Life 2 mod, Dino D-Day is seeing a commercial release this month on Steam. I’ve never heard of this game but the Big Download Blog is giving away 100 invites to try the beta and I just got one so must give that a go soon!

Nazis and dinosaurs. Wow.

10 of the best multiplayer experiences

I just spotted a two page feature in GamesTM listing their top 10 multiplayer games:

  1. Mario Kart
  2. Bomberman
  3. Street Fighter
  4. Halo
  5. Micro Machines
  6. Battlefield
  7. Worms
  8. Pac-man Vs
  9. Team Fortress 2
  10. Starcraft

What? No Modern Warfare 2? Surely they jest!! OMG WTF!

Anyway, the list above reminded me I had the Orange Box for the Xbox, and included on that compilation is Team Fortress 2. Ihaveneverplayedit! Yes, I have never played it! I also only played Portal on my Macbook with frustrating teeth grinding slow results.

Will I play TF2? I’d like to but probably not unless someone volunteers to join me in a game.

Edit: I found this video of Team Fortress 2, uploaded earlier today so looks like an active community still!

Half Life 2 comes to the Mac

I’m downloading Half Life 2 through Steam on my Macbook now. I don’t expect it to run any better than Portal did however. Glad I have the Orange Box on my Xbox if I want a decent game of either! (Thanks giantbomb!)
