Jumpgate Evolution – Beta Signup

A while ago I received a newsletter from Codemasters about an upcoming game called „Jumpgate Evolution„:

Jumpgate Evolution is the definitive elite space combat MMO set in an intense action-packed universe. Discover three playable nations, trade valuable commodities, take part in dangerous intergalactic raids, meet and play with friends and live out the dream to become an elite hero, all-controlling commander or infamous space pirate.

Jumpgate EvolutionThe screenshots are very promising, as are the features:

  • Engage in Dog-Fights
  • Explore a huge and varied universe
  • Highly Accessible
  • Huge Space Battles
  • Three Playable Nations
  • Advanced Gameplay Systems
  • Player driven world

The game itself looks like a Eve Online variant, so one may wait for the Beta release to judge about it.

If you want to sign up for the beta, visit the Jumpgate Evolution homepage.

I’m signed up already and hope to be one of the many chosen for testing the game. What about you?

Xfire – Gaming Simplified

Every Gamer knows this problem: You play a game and your have your favorite messenger running in the background. Right in a fight you get an incoming message. Depending on your computer, the game and the messenger, you either get killed, the game/computer crashes or something else happens, like the Internet fails, that’s why getting a pro gaming router at least help with this problem. Also, you may not be able to „tab out“ and reply.

Maybe it is the perfect timing to tell you about gaming messenger named Xfire. Weiterlesen

So I was browsing on YouTube just to discover a video of a friend who solved a Rubik’s Cube (3x3x3) in less than 20 seconds – I didn’t even solve my cube so far. I guess I better go and find my Rubik’s cube and give it another shot…

If you have no clue about what a Rubik’s Cube is, let me try to explain it.

Star Wars: Galaxies – „Dev Chat“

This interview never took place, however it reflects the mood of the majority of the Star Wars: Galaxies players. This majority is also known as the Star Wars: Galaxies Veterans and obviously Sony Entertainment keeps on failing to listen to this majority when it comes to game development/changes.
Today another friend of mine decided to quit Star Wars: Galaxies, so I think it is justified to post this fake Dev Chat log, which was originally planned as introduction of my other article but was left out…now I took the time to make it even better.

Well, enjoy the one or the other not so funny joke about Sony Online Entertainment and what they are doing with this great game.
