Gaijin Entertainment really loves war vehicles and war history. There´s absolutely no doubt about that (whatsoever). And if you ever doubted that for a second. Then just watch Gaijin´s "The T 44 restoration project - Part 1" video.
Becouse the goal would be to restore a broken down Soviet WWII T-44 tank, to a fully functional one. That will of course require a lot of skille, time and effort. But if there is someone who can do it. Then it´s Gaijin and Central Museum of Armored Vehicles in Kubinka!
(MOSCOW, RUSSIAN FEDERATION) – September 15th, 2015 - Award-winning developer and publisher Gaijin Entertainment and the Central Museum of Armored Vehicles in Kubinka, have announced a dual partnership to fully restore a World War 2 era Soviet T-44 tank.
The project will see the museums depot stock T-44 tank usually used for spare parts fully restored to full working order, complete with full interior and exterior overhaul to bring it back to its original WW2 battle ready appearance. The restoration will involve hundreds of man hours in order to transform the tank from its current badly damaged state into a show stopping fully restored museum display and exhibition piece.
The T-44 was a medium tank introduced by the Soviet Union towards the end of World War 2 and was the successor to the T-34 tank. The T-44 held several improvements over the mass produced T-34 tank, including stronger armour and an increased ammunition capacity whilst retaining the same maneuverability characteristics of its T-34 counterpart.
The T-44 was the Soviet Union’s first step in developing an advanced post war tank and was succeeded by the T-54 and T-55 variants which saw enhancements to main gun firepower, tank speed and armour protection.
“This is a rare opportunity to bring a piece of military history back to life for our players and tank enthusiasts,” said Creative Director Krill Yudintsev. “The T-44 was one of the first tanks in War Thunder and we are excited to restore one of the last surviving examples of this with the help of the Kubinka museum. This is a rare opportunity to bring a piece of military history back to life for our players and tank enthusiasts”.
Upon finalization of the lengthy restoration the T-44 will take pride of place in the Kubinka tank museum and will play a central part in historic reconstruction festivals and other museum events and exhibitions.
It seems like planet management games are the FPS of the 2014s. Because honestly, i have seen so many planet management games, that i have forgotten most of their names. But every now and then, i see a game that really sticks out from the crowd.
Like Crytivo Games "The Universim" for example. It´s said to take the planet management to the next level. And you know what? It might just do that. At least that´s what i thought when i watched some videos about The Universim.
Because it seems like Crytivo Games have tried really hard to think outside the box. And actually offer something new and exciting for the players to enjoy. And that´s probarly why The Universim collected over $387,000 in total via Kickstarter (the game was fully funded in May this year).
I also just found out that The Universim has recived thumbs up on Steam Greenlight as well. So if you like the thought of planet management 2.0, then you should keep your eyes on The Universim!
About The Universim:
Leave the farms and cities behind, jump straight into managing your own planets in The Universim, a brand new god-game in development by Crytivo Games and Alexander Koshelkov. The Universim is first and foremost a planet management game.
The game begins in the stone age, thousands of years before the modern era. Research plays a crucial role in the game. Players will initially need to reinvent fire in order to survive attacks from wild animals or create cures for deadly viruses and other ailments.
We’re developing planets that will have air, weather effects and varying temperatures and natural resources along with deadly natural disasters such as earthquakes, tornadoes, freak storms and meteors. In The Universim you play as a god, you will not interact directly with the population that inhabits your planet, however you will be able to help them. You will have the power to stop wars between cities on your planet or you can ignore them and allow one city to destroy the other.
Atari and Human Head Studios has just released the full list of launch features for their game "Minimum". And that´s a really, really long list of features. So there´s quite a big difference between the final release, and the alpha stage one.
And there´s still a 50% price-cut on Minimum via Steam (you can buy the game for 5 Euro). So if you like the new trailer, then you might wanna give Minimum a go!
Co-Op Horde Mode – All the fun of Minimum's customizable armor and power-up weapons packed into hectic co-op arena. Fighters work with other players to survive as long as possible while battling waves of enemies and defending their territory.
Device and Skin Customization – Minimum players now have the option to create and purchase cosmetic skins for their favorite weapons and armor. What's more, weapon skins function just like weapon schematics: combatants can craft additional copies of a skinned weapon, which they can trade to friends or other players alike!
Altar of the Ancients Map – Set deep in the heart of a lush, uncharted jungle, Altar of the Ancients is a team death match map filled with twisting corridors that are home to a cult who worships Titans and the old ways.
New Weapon: Beam Rifle - The Beam Rifle is a powerful new weapon that fires a continuous blast of devastating energy as its primary fire, while adding a directable explosion with its alternate fire.
New Weapon: Bounce Rifle - The Bounce Rifle is a chaotic weapon that creates deadly encounters in closed quarters. Each shot ricochets off the surrounding environment, and given the high fire rate of the weapon it can turn any corridor or cave into a light show sure to put a stop to your enemies!
Tutorial Map vs. Bots – Minimum’s fast-paced action can be daunting for newcomers, but that shouldn’t be a problem anymore thanks to a brand-new tutorial experience that introduces novice players to the core concepts and complexities of Titan mode to better prepare them for the rigors of Minimum’s unique brand of arena action.
Steam Item Trading (Coming Soon) – Minimum now supports the Steam Inventory and Trading systems, where soldiers can trade weapons, blueprints and items from any titles that support the Steam Inventory system.
Simply beautiful and brilliant.
Right off the bat, no, Ice Water Games "Eidolon" ain´t nothing like Proteus. With that said, let me tell you why you should spend your time and money on Eidolon (in this case, 15 Euro via Steam) First of all, the game are stunningly beautiful, and you get to explore that beautiful world.
Then you got the fact that every little thing in the game has a story of it´s own. In a way, it feels like your playing a interactive bedtime story. But Eidolon are full of twists and turns. In short, it´s an adventure that you don´t wanna miss out on.
Eidolon is a game about exploring a mysterious landscape and uncovering the stories of the people who lived there once before. It is a game about history, curiosity, interconnectedness, and the slow and inevitable beauty of life.
You will be dropped into the dreary and mystical Western Washington circa 2400 c.e. with little to guide your way. Awaiting you is a vast landscape filled with wildlife, edible plants, and the memories of our now-dead culture—stored in artefacts such as journals, sketchbooks, newspapers, zines, brochures, transcripts, blogs, and more. Collect these memories and piece together what happened to these people.
Because even though Doom had internet and LAN support. Quake toke it to the next level. And a very early version of the E-Sport scene was created thanks to Quakes huge popularity.
Me, i bought a new PC just so that i could play Quake. But it´s been over 10 years ago since i played Q1 the last time. So it´s my greate pleasure to return to the world of Quake again.
But this time it will be with advance graphics, light and particle effects (and what not). So, please enjoy my very first video of Quake Remake (it´s a mix of Darkplaces and Epsilon, so i just named it "Quake Remake") =)
Even though i don´t even have a poker face, and lack both luck and skills when it comes to card games. I can still enjoy playing it every now and then. But i like to watch the big tournaments and championships even more. Because it´s really thrilling to see huge pokerstars play with thousands and thousands of dollars (even millions).
And speaking of money and championships. LeoVegas has just kicked off their Nordic Championship for Blackjack. So if you´re into Blackjack (and have a lot of luck and luck), then you might wanna check it out =)
Fred Meyer an American retailer had begun handing out reservation cards saying Super Smash Bros. Is coming out November 21st. This would put it in the reason of Black Friday, one of the busiest spins days of the year globally.
It would make sense if it turns out to be true since Black Friday always guarantees sales, and increased ad revenue for retailers who participate in its madness. If Super Smash Bros. Comes out ahead of its release date this would be one of the biggest game launches of 2014.
Super Smash Bros. Has the potential to outsell Grand theft auto on Next-gen. We’ll be covering more as this story unfolds for now keep following us and stay tuned as we update this.
The Gaming Ground
No Notch no!
"Oh dear mother of god no!", "Please tell me that this is some kind of sick joke?", "Bye bye Minecraft". Those are some of the reactions that i have seen on the internet so far. Yes, i´m of course talking about the fact that Microsoft has bought Mojang (and Minecraft) for 2,5 billon dollars.
At first i thought that it was a joke as well. But then i remembered that there has been rumors going on for months about MS buying Mojang. And now it´s official, Microsoft now owns Mojang and all of their creations. So now i understand why so many Minecraft players are upset.
Because we ALL know what happened to Rare (don´t we now?). And this of course raises a lot of questions. Like, what will happen to Minecraft now? Will Notch quit his job at Mojang? And how much will this effect Mojang as a whole?
So, What do you guys think about all this?
"Gaming is a top activity spanning devices, from PCs and consoles to tablets and mobile, with billions of hours spent each year. Minecraft is more than a great game franchise – it is an open world platform, driven by a vibrant community we care deeply about." - CEO Satya Nadella, Microsoft Studios
