We’re Moving!

I have slaved over a hot computer over the festive period to bring Pixelfury bang up to date. I have purchased the domain name, designed the site (thanks to the templates anyways) and set it all up for blogging fun. The new site is now live you can see it at www.pixel-fury.co.uk

So, hopefully this will make the site bigger and better, and allow me access to more news reviews and features that I can bring to you guys. Thanks so much for supporting me and I’ll be seeing you over at pixel-fury!!!!!!!

Unreal Engine 3 on Iphone!!

That little touch screen marvel keeps on surprising! Gears Of War developer Epic has been showing off its iPhone version of the Unreal Engine 3, though it says it’s not announcing any games for the platform just yet.

Epic boss Mark Rein has been showcasing an Unreal Engine 3 tech demo running on a third generation iPod Touch. It’s the same Unreal Engine 3 that powers Gears of War 2. Rein says it’ll be seen running on another mobile platform at CES next year.
“The demo is both playable and has a flythrough,” says AnandTech. “It’s using a modified Unreal Tournament level previously shown off at GDC. A virtual thumbstick on the left side of the screen controls your movement, while tracking your thumb in the lower right corner of the screen controls the camera. Just tap the screen to shoot. Mark said this is a tech test bed and they’re experimenting with several different control schemes including ones with tilt.”

This is exciting stuff indeed, What’s next for the iphone, virtual reality googles, HD, 3D, Plasma holographic display? or perhaps just a way to control games easily. Lets face it the touch screen is a bit naff for that. Lets hope the guys at Epic can sort it out.  Viva la iphone

Bayonetta PS3 review

I’m excited about this game. I played the demo and it blew me away with its insane moves, story and general weirdness. I mean having hair that makes up your dress and guns for stilletos! What’s not to like? head on over to Computer and Video Games to get the verdict. Shame it gets released a little late for my Christmas stocking. gah

99p horror films?

Looks like Sony have had enough of all this Christmas Cheer and are offering selected classic Horror Films from the PSN Video Store for a whopping 99p. i’ve not had the chance to check it out (being at work and all)  so I don’t know if thats to buy or rent. If its to buy definitely worth a download to add to your film library. As far as I can gather the only films on offer that I know off are CandyMan 2 Farewell to the Flesh, Evil Behind You, Poltergeist 3. There may be more but thats all I know for now. If anyone is at home and is on the PSN have a little look and let me know so I can update the blog.

XBOX 360 Avatar Reality System?

We may be seeing more realistic Xbox avatars soon, possibly thanks to the release of Project Natal late next year.  Microsoft filled a new patent for a new Xbox 360 Avatar Reality system. Sounds like the new avatars will match the user’s real life physical appearance thanks to the Natal’s camera. Sounds quite exciting,  might get people off their chairs and perhaps someone communicate with another Avatar by weird sign language or something. What would be odd if they have a Mii channel like thing were you have all these Avatars matching their real life counter part waiting for a cursor hand to grab them or worse, voted on!!!! eek

New Ghost Recon Games coming?

It looks like Ubisoft have ben busy on the trademark front. Not registering 1 but 2 new Ghost Recon Titles. The first being “Ghost Recon future Soldier” and the other being “Ghost Recon Predator” My betting is Future Soldier will be the fourth tittle in the Ghost Recon Series and Predator will either be a Wii exclusive or an RTS type game. All speculation of course. but I like the Ghost Recon series its mixture of modern day settings mixed with an almost future like reality made for some great games. so it’s all good news in my book.
