24 Season 7 trailer premiere

Exclusive S7 trailer of 24 is now online! download it from here (19MB)

If you had any doubt of 24 being awesome or amazing. this trailer surely puts all those to rest. after the horrible S6, looks like 24’s on the right track again. can’t wait 😀

Oh Yahoo!, How retarded are you?

for nearly two hours now, I’ve been trying to download the demo of Call of Duty 4, you see, Infinity Ward went  in retard mode and instead of making it exclusive to FilePlanet (which by the way, while they suck, they can atleast HANDLE the fucking traffic load) they gave it to Yahoo!, Yahoo! never handles exclusive demos and this situation just solidifies that they should NEVER, EVER be allowed near a game file again. first off, the demo is 1.4GB, which isn’t small, to make matters worst, Yahoo doesn’t support resuming, furthermore, each time you reach 10-15MB or something similar, the connection breaks and you’re left with nothing. since it’s exclusive, you won’t see a mirror soon and since the connection keeps breaking, no one is able to actually finish the download and mirror the file. so an standing ovation to Yahoo! for ruining a great demo launch for a highly anticipated title. bravo Yahoo!, you’ve finally proven that you’re gayer than that YouTube Emo fag (no, that shithead’s name won’t get mentioned in my blog. ever.) retards.

Crysis BETA is awesome! (performance and pics inside)

I’m officially hooked to Crysis beta. as soon as it was released to public (limited time) I was quick to grab it and I can hardly stop playing since the MP is so damn awesome 🙂 The BETA is NDA-Bound…..it’s too bad I don’t give a fuck about NDAs. Anyway, for people wondering what the performance is like, I did some limited testing, here it is:

System –

Q6600 2.4GHz
4GB DDR2 667MHz
XFX 8800GTX @600MHz/1.9GHz
Vista Ultimate x64 (Forceware 163.69)
19″ WS LCD

Benchmarks-

Crysis @1440×900 – 0x AF 0x AA – Medium Quality

Min: 52fps

Max: 57fps

Avg: 54.535fps

Crysis@1440×900 – 16x AF 0x AA – Maximum Quality

Min: 27fps

Max: 39fps

Avg: 33fps

I’ll do some Low quality benchies when I play the game next time. The performance at high is awful since the frame rate drops to teens (16-20fps) when there’s lot of action going on. but this is a beta and the performance will improve considerably in Demo and/or Retail. also, the Beta is NOT DX10. you CANT RUN IT IN DX10. regardless of what other retards say, you can’t run it in DX10. Crytek didn’t bundle a DX10 renderer in the beta. the demo will be DX10 AFAIK. also, Crysis is the best looking game developed till now. on any platform.

Screenshots –

Finally the part everyone’s waiting for. I took a ton of Crysis Screenshots, You can check them out in my ImageShack Folder

All the latest pics are of Crysis. all screenies are high quality (no jpg artefacts) at 1440×900 resolution.

Enjoy! 😀

Can’t wait for Crysis 😀
