The magazine that during as much well-known time fué as Computer Gaming World (from 1981) dejà ³ the free path to a mediocre PC Gamer to give cover to a market that it has changed of face.

The PC Gaming is no dead, simply has been evolving of which we knew for 10 or 20 años and has given yielded the passage to two great communities: the accidental player and the one that WoW plays. It is a fact that the accidental players do not read the news, reseñas or columns of the industry of the vjuegos and fanÃtico of WoW prefers to find out by other means (Web, podcast or fanzines) everything what has to do with the game.

A sad moment, fuà reader for a long time of the magazine después of caÃda of PC Gamer. seguiré now leyéndola in line.

GTA 4 DS

This seems mÃs a joke of April' s Fool, nevertheless a distributer francés has put in its lists versià ³ n of GTA 4 for DS to distribute during prà ³ ximo month of June. Nor Rockstar and Nintendo has not either confirmed (or denied) this announcement that seems mÃs dedazo of Excel that another thing.

ÂQué so well verÃa a GTA 4 in the DS? Perhaps optarÃa by a view superior since the capacities 3D of the console do not estan to renderear all Liberty City. Rumor or not aquà estÃthe original source.

K2⠀ ™ s Tenchu

Capcom anuncià ³ that comprarÃto K2, the study responsible for the saga of Tenchu, with the purpose of to obtain a development process mÃs rÃI ask and efficient.

Aún does not know that pasarÃwith Tenchu or Valhalla Knights since the study enfocarÃto work in the projects of Capcom, aún asà I hope patiently that ³ n of worthy Tenchu of generacià is given to one versià present ³ n of consoles and not a mess like fué Tenchu Z.

The battle by the first place has had as protagonist to I haul 3 and CoD 4, nevertheless is east último the one that has stayed in first posicià ³ n during the últimas weeks. With the new exit of the package Variety Map Pack dated for April, it is possible that this situacià ³ n stays.

Sims 3

In agreement with Rod Humble, creative director of the study responsible for this delivery, Sims 3 has like objective when traditional gamer thanks to their new system of game on the basis of objectives. In agreement with Humble, in third versià ³ n of The Sims podrÃs to realize activities as jardinerÃa fishes or, based on objectives that to perhaps are him familiar to many of us who we enjoyed the massive games.

The idea is to separate from the idea of “cages of hamsters” in Sims 2 the game was not mÃs that a group of “hamsters with works”. The experience that looks for in this new delivery is of a game mÃopen s.

decisià is one dangerous ³ n since the éxito of the Sims is in the accidental market to which it goes directed, nevertheless this experience a little mÓsocial” s can give the change him that always we have waited for (if, I también fuà fan of the Sims). The interview can read completes it in MCV.

Ubisoft has said that “redefinirÃthe RTS in console” (Âperhaps it exists) with its new tax exemption Tom Clancy' s End War. CompañÃa has not been limiting and for some time or habÃa declared to be “the equivalent in RTS to which it is KOTOR in RPGs or GTA in the games of accià ³ n”. The use of commandos by voice is interesting, has nevertheless not redefined the género of accià ³ n tÃctica in games like Rainbow Six (where también has been applied).

In the following video they can see a little the jugabilidad which paints rather well and estarÃcompeting with I haul Wars by the RTS of console of this 2008. Luckyly for compañÃa, this market is virgin even in consoles.

Wii

Según the analyst Billy Pidgeon, the PS3 serÃa the última work of art in the market of consoles of videojuegos, since the éxito of the Wii and the recent explosion of accidental players dictarÃan the price of following generacià ³ n of consoles. The expert as much assures that to Sony as to Microsoft he has not gone to them well, the pérdidas ones of $240 by each PS3 and respective the $125 of the XB360 have left the door him abierta to Nintendo, which has obtained excellent gains with a “Gamecube 1,5 with movement sensor”.

In the personnel I believe that the accidental market todavÃa estÃvery far like dictating to all one generacià ³ n of consoles. Having a Wii has become one annoying fashion, if they do not create to me make a survey between his friendly that do not play; I assure that mà to thems of half wishes this console. The Wii podrÃto be the console mÃsold s, nevertheless is less played and that does not agree to the producing houses.
