For Harry Hardcore-gamer, two things are of the utmost importance: Good gameplay, and awe-inspiring graphics. Bringing everything a Hardcore-gamer wants together into one little neat package is no simple task - for any of the parties involved - and if the Hardcore-gamer's chosen platform is the PC, it's at it's most difficult.
The rewards of overcoming the difficulties faced by programmers when optimizing for new hardware is evident to anyone whose owned a first or second generation Sony Playstation. Just pick up one of the early titles for either platform then compare the graphical detail with one of the more recent titles that have matured on the Playstation platform.

The GranTurismo franchise makes it really easy to see; the level of content and quality that has evolved on the Platstation is astounding!  Being able to spend a couple of years on optimizations clearly has it's benifits! It's in creating such optimizations that a programmer is often most challenged. But that's the Playstation reality, two years spent on optimizations! For the same set of hardware!

We will be looking primarily at PC hardware.

As a fan of LOTR I thought it was about time I took a look at one of the many games now available.

The Battle for Middle Earth was produced using the Command & Conquer Generals Sage 3D game engine. Sounds like a winning combination, but is it? Read the review here at AOA.

"At the dawn of the 22nd century the conquest of space and the colonization of the solar system is being monopolized by several huge and ambitious megacorporations. Although extremely delicate and vulnerable, a balance is maintained by these companies. At the very edge of the solar system the companies make a discovery which will shift the technological advantage and upset the balance. And so a new conflict is born: The Jupiter Incident."

Those Digital Jesters bring a new entrant in to the city building foray. The box invites us to "Build, Defend, Expand".  So, I took up the challenge to see if this game of French origins offers us anything new.

On hearing that RCT3 was to be released today, Pitch didn't just saunter down to his local games store. No! He ran full tilt to be one of the first to get his hands on the game! Those who remember the first two may be wondering just how much better could the third version be?  Well, rest assured, Pitch has words to say, and they're pretty good words too!
