Tribes 2 Giveaway

XGR is giving away two copies of Tribes 2. All it will cost you is your email address. One caveat, they don't have a privacy policy saying exactly what they plan on doing with your address. Of course, if your email box is anything like mine, one more spam list would be almost imperceptible.

Blue Shift Preview

PC.IGN posted a brief preview of Blue Shift, the forthcoming Half-Life expansion from Gearbox Software. They include two screenshots too of a Barney and a scientist to show the difference between the original H-L models and the high-definition ones to be included with Blue Shift. Thanks Stomped.

Agenda VR3 Review

Brighthand posted a review of the Linux-based Agenda VR3 PDA. The news isn't good. I'm not so sure that Linux is the best OS for a PDA anyway (I'd prefer one designed from the ground-up for the device). We'll have to see if the next PDA from Agenda will fix the copious bugs or if the company itself will be DOA. Thanks Slashdot.

Shogo for Amiga Demo Released

Hyperion Software has released a demo of Shogo: Mobile Armor Division for Amiga. It is a 36M download. You can check out the readme here. I updated my About Shogo page with this information as well. Thanks Blue.

Half-Life Map Pack

Planet Half-Life has put together their promised map pack from the PHL/Valve mapping contest. The maps look pretty slick and would make a good addition to your H-L library. The whole pack is a very reasonable 6.5M.

Pondering the Imponderable

'Scuse me whilst I nap. I had forgotten how difficult it is to teach a newborn the concepts of "day" and "night". Right now, he's got the two messed up. But he is so insufferably cute, he is quickly and easily forgiven. Plus we're trying to keep him awake during the day so hopefully he'll sleep tonight :)

On the website front, I'm working on a review of Shogo for Linux and various other things for my Haus of Shogo. I've got a bunch of things planned actually, but most of them will have to wait until next week as this week promises to be very busy. Life in the fast lane . . .
