I already have it, so I won't have to become a codemasters supporter like ian

Huh?
Of course I'm a codemasters supporter, they've given the world more great racing games than any other developer...

They've also made the most games featuring an egg as the main character. I don't know if that's good or bad though.

I can only imagine good.. but that's just what those egg council creeps want you to think.

Stronghold Crusader HD is currently US$1 on Bundlestars. Anyone that wants it will need to be quick though, because the deal finishes in around 4 hours.

Free Rage Parking Simulator 2016 Steam Keys

You can now play the original Tomb Raider in your browser

If you can run Doom on a calculator, then there shouldn’t be much stopping you from running Tomb Raider within your web browser. This week, modder ‘XProger’ revealed that after several months of work, he has managed to mod the original 1996 Tomb Raider to be playable in-browser in both third and first-person view.

The project was inspired by the open-source ‘OpenTomb’ project, which is rebuilding the engine. The website doesn’t make the entire game playable, though it does let you play through the City of Vilcabamba level.

There is a ‘load level’ function on the website, so if you can get hold of the other levels, you should be able to play those in-browser too. Aside from being able to play the game in third and first-person view, the frame rate is also unlocked, so you can play it as smoothly as your PC will allow.

KitGuru Says: Browser games sure have come a long way…

I got an extra couple of codes for The Witcher, which I forgot about. Don't know if they will still work but I'll PM you one.

CryZENx Reveals Sonic Adventure 2 Chao Garden Comparison

Image

We’re big fans of CryZENx here at eTeknix. As a modder, he’s certainly talented and has recreated many famous games of years gone by in modern game engines. Most of those demos can even be downloaded and played, which is one of the main reasons we’re so interested in them.
Who is CryZENx?

Want to see some of his previous work? How about Super Mario Sunshine, Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and more!
Sonic Adventure 2

CryZENx actually released the video of the Chao Garden about a year or so ago. It was pretty popular, but I’ve never had the chance to compare it to the original game, until now.

The latest video shows off a side by side comparison of the original and the new version. I am a big fan of the work, but I must admit that the new one lacks a lot of the colour that made the original look and feels like a Sonic game. Not saying it looks bad though, as the increase in detail and resolution are amazing. With the new video (the 2nd video down below), perhaps he’s ready to do more work on his Mario projects? We will have to wait and see!
