Four Thirds System and more

fourthirds

Finally everyone is going to play together, well almost everyone. If you’re a photo nut, you already know about the Four Thirds movement, if not here it is in a nut shell. Four Thirds System is a cooperative venture to standardize interchangeable lens. Which means Kodak, Panasonic, Olympus, and even Leica will support the same lens mount. It’s like taking your cell number to another network, now you can take your camera to another lens system, or the other way around. The really cool thing about it, (image above) you will see a lot of small compact cameras with some big lens’… For more info check it out here.

world of war review + giveaway

It’s the holiday and we are feeling generous.  We have been reviewing Call Of Duty: World At War, and have decided to give a few copies of the game away to readers. but first we thought we would give it a play, see the review below.

First the review, then the contest.

If you want to get “in the shit” but can’t afford a time machine, Call Of Duty: World At War will do pretty nicely. While the sentiment is known more from the ‘Nam era than any other military situation, the initial gameplay from this WWII era first person shooter definitely gives off that vibe. Starting off in the jungles and villages of Japanese occupied territories, you work your way through objectives while heavily camouflaged enemy soldiers create enough confusion to accidentally cause more than a few friendly-fire mistakes. This gives way to Nazi themed levels, with vehicles like tanks available for some gameplay.

The graphics are lush and wonderful, with beautiful night skies, swaying trees and brush, and occasional ambience like smoke from nearby fires and grenade explosions. All of it is wrapped in solid type and graphic design for level intros, and player deaths are characterized by a bleak Saving Private Ryan style drop-to the-ground-screen-goes-black-and-white-blood-fills-around-the-edges animation. Unfortunately the visuals aren’t as lushly layered with smoke, grime and dust as we’d like, but perhaps the historical accuracy of the game benefits from actually being able to see what’s going on.

Gameplay is solid if not a little scripted- you can die repeatedly but keep hammering through the objectives trying different tactics with each restart. Multiplayer is decent with some fun options (Nazi zombies, anyone?) involving all the solo and team play scenarios expected nowadays. The only drawback to this historical shooter is that we all know how the war ended, and pushing your way through the war with no fun surprise at the end can get old if you’re the type of gamer who also enjoys the horror and scifi variants on these types of games.
