The devs over at Semaphore have recently released a new trailer for their upcoming title “Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta”. Unfortunately there isnt much in the way of information int he new video as it is more about the supported languages, which it has many.
In my first article from the Develop conference I spoke about the WMD portal and how the gaming community can get involved in the development and investment of games rather than just being a consumer. In the second article of this series Ill take a look at “Ethics and Designing Addiction in games”.

After taking Minecraft from a little known game to something with its own ‘con, a cult following and essentially a money printing machine, Notch has decided to step down as lead developer and work on another project.
Lets get this right from the start. This post is pure speculation at its best. Ok, now thats out the way, Sandswept, indie developers behind the Game detour have posted the dates that it will be on sale again. Could that date be the dates of the Christmas Steam Sale?
One of the reasons I went with a full Eyefinity and G940 HOTAS setup was for flight sims. I love them. Its definitely an acquired taste but its a nice one at that.

Microsoft Flight Beta Applications are now Open!
Finally the EVE Online Crucible expansion is here. It is said that this expansion adds more improvements than CCP has added in the past 2 years too! Check out the trailer and some of the features after the break.
Everyone playing Bf3 is well aware of how annoying the sun glare is in the game. A lot of people are also aware of the recent community made FXAA injectors made available to Skyrim PC players that improved the graphics of the game. Well now the same improvements are available to Battlefield 3 players, but install and play at your own risk..

Back before Battlefield 3 launched, EA and Dice promised BF3 owners Battlefield 1943 together with the game. though something happened soon after and they decided that they would no longer give the promised game but instead, they would be giving PS3 owners the Karkand Expansion 1 week early. As expected, PS3 owners weren’t too happy.
I have been a fan of remote control cars and planes for a while….when it comes down to it, which guy isnt? So when I came across this quad copter I was blown away by the agility and the speed of this thing.
One of the best things about PC gaming is the fact that on the majority of games, modding the game to your tastes can be achieved without too much dificulty. Even on games that haven’t been designed to be modded, the community usually finds a way. Well it seems like Steam and Bethesda have just teamed up and patched Skyrim adding nothing to the game, in fact they took stuff away.
CRYTEK have been on a bit of a winning streak lately with the CRYENGINE 3. Several developers and animators have announced that they will be liscensing the engine to create their products throughout 2012. The one we have taken notice of however is MechWarrior Online.
I try and stay up to date with encryption news and who is doing what, both for and against. So I was surprised when I came across this bit of news which I hadnt seen before, even though it looks like it has been known fora while. It looks like some printers may actually be printing serial numbers and other information onto each document you print.
Data encryption is no longer the speciality of spies and governments worldwide. For years now the average Ahmad has been able to encypt and self destruct their hard drives and data at home. Well now it seems the US Govt. isnt too happy about it.
Yet another game MMORPG that joins the free to play ranks. I am personaly excited about this one as it has features that I really like about an MMORPG. You can kill anybody and that includes same race kills. You can declare war on other Clans and conquer fortresses. It reminds me of EVE Online… (with the exception of kill boards and space ships) I am definitely going to be checking this one out. Check out the announcement and trailer below.
I don’t want to take the spot light from our newest addition to the team here at Muslim Gamer, but I did want to welcome Sondos from Canada. Sondos will be focusing on mostly PS3 news and anything else that takes her interest. So without any further delays
As we stand in the last few days of its release date, Assassin’s Creed fans may finally rejoice on Tuesday. It has been announced that it is the last game to feature Ezio Auditore da Firenze and AltaïrIbn La’Ahad, though players can also look forward to a unique multiplayer experience.
If the games history is anything to go by, Skyrim will be a huge world with plenty to explore, lots of people to meet and most probably lots of bugs to find. It looks like a day one patch has already been confirmed with DLC to come.
When you look back at the last 10 years of FPS gaming history, basically everything that can be done within the genre, has been done – over and over again. So can Payday: The Heist finally bring something different?
