I remember watching 360 degree panoramic views of Battlefield 2 views on this site, and now it has a collection of beautiful Half-life 2 high-res 360 degree panoramic views. You can use your quick time player to view around as you wish. Real worth seeing the beauty of this game.

At the recent German Gaming convention “Leipzig” there was a hall completely devoted to Pong as an Art form. There were many variations of the paddle and ball game from latest Computer games (like Rockstar table tennis) to age old Atari versions, but more interestingly there were physical pongs…
- One pong table used magnetic paddles and ball to play the game
- Another variation used cycle to control the paddle, cycle in one direction move up, cycle in opposite it moves down.
- One was completely physical using projectors and players ran to control the paddle.

The famous Battlefield creators DICE are planning a new spin-off in their Battlefield series called Battlefield: Bad Company. Whats new is that instead of multiplayer the game focuses on solo gameplay around a group of corrupt soldiers. Although the multiplayer options will be there but its main aim will be solid storyline in single player mode for a change.
The game will be released in 2007 on PS3 and Xbox 360.

Activision, Spike TV and Best Buy have teamed up to create a boot camp survival reality show. The Game Head Call of Duty 3 Challenge has an open casting call for 16 gamers with “personality, perseverance and gaming skills” to compete for VIP access to Spike TV’s Video Game Awards show, a home entertainment system from Best Buy and a trip for two to Normandy, France.

CocaCola has made a Grand Theft Auto style advertisement. But there is a twist its Anti-GTA.. The AD, graphics and style is everything good. The music style should have been more “Rocking” metal style. A must see AD even though i didnt like the music.

Following its 34-day war with Lebanon, funny man Adam Sandler is doing his part to help out war ravaged Israel. Not only is he generously donating US $100,000 of his own money, but he’s also sending 400 PlayStations to children whose houses were damaged. Because after a war, the first thing you want to do is play some PS2 in your bombed out living room. And, what are Lebanese expecting? First aid? Atari 2600?

Classy peripheral maker eDimensional made a gyroscopic controller with a built-in rumble for the PS2 and PC. The pad is an eight way digital direction controller that features twin motors for double the vibe feedback. It has patented Virtual Reality Motion Sensing (everyone just seems to have a patent for motion sensing these days, I don’t think patents are what they used to be, everyone seems to get one for same thing with slightly different name).
Other than the technology buff behind the controller; What’s up with their AD. Seriously dude! What are you selling?
