Real Bullet Magazine Counter

Inspired by FPS games, someone has gone ahead and created something so simple and genius for guns.  A real bullet magazine counter that will tell you have many bullets you have left to fire.  It’s funny how I would see this everyday on my HUD but never have thought to see these in real life. Now that this video has gone viral, the creators are now putting into product.  I guess now we can stop guessing how many bullets are left in the magazine.

Check out the test footage past the break.

Bungie Aggregates Info on the Halo:Reach Multiplayer

Bungie‘s Weekly Update sheds some light on the gritty details of how Reach‘s Multiplayer will distinguish itself from the previous titles. And let me say, its looks pretty freakin’ sweet.

Oh, to be able to emanate sexy blue flashy things

Succinctly put, Elites are seriously overpowered, Spartans get cloaking ability, there’s a seriously sweet EMP power that leaves you invincibly immobile, and shiny, sweet, sexy new guns. Oh, sexy sweet shiny guns. Nothing like you. In the world. Or other ones.

But maybe most importantly, there’s a fascinating discussion on the subtle nuances of shield mechanics have evolved, and is sure to spark wave after wave of ‘Oh noes!’ ‘Oh Yes!’commentary.

Pwnage of the Week, Possibly the year!

Ok, we’ve all seen how cocky some folks get in first person shooter and sometimes it just feels right. However there are some who are just plain cocky about it. This video sheds some light on a scenario where one of those cocky fools gets handed theirs in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Thanks One Gebhard for the entertainment.

By now you must no the score, Zipper Ineractive’s PS3 exclusive MAG (Massive Action Game) is both massive and full of action. Hitting American store shelves on the January 26, 2010, it’s one of the most ambitious online FPS games ever tried, featuring a total of 256 simultaneous players in one game, 128 versus 128. Zipper Interactive, the first developer to bring online gaming to the PS2 with SOCOM, is attempting to bring a new kind of war type FPS to the world, where whole battalions face off against each other in real-time combat. Hundreds of organised and well trained soldiers (that’s you if you hadn’t guessed) facing off in real-world type scenarios like those portrayed in Black Hawk Down. Read On

Eliminate – Teaser Trailer

Posted by: |

ngmoco, creators of highly acclaimed iPhone games like Rolando and StarDefense, is coming out with a new game called Eliminate.  This is ngmoco’s answer to the iPhone FPS online mutiplayer genre.  Eliminate seems to look kind of like QuakeLive, but with a stats system that you can upgrade.  The more people you “eliminate” the more credits you get.  The more credits you get, the better you can make your stats, armor or weapon.

Now, I have been playing iMech on my iPhone, and the online multiplayer mode is a bit choppy.  I hope, with ngmoco’s resources, that Eliminate’s arena will be faster.
