Crysis 2 Gets DirectX 11 Support!

Crysis 2, developed by Crytek is touted to be one of the best games of all-time. I am not just saying that as a die-hard fan of the Cry Engine 3, but it really is considered the gold standard in modern graphics.

I am pleased to announce that Crysis 2 now comes with support for DirectX11, offering improved graphics, high resolution texture packages, and making Crysis 2 looking better than ever, especially to those who have the game for PC.

Plants Vs Zombies Arrives On Windows Phone 7

Plants vs Zombies is an awesome game that was first introduced to Android as a tower-defense type game. Instead of your standard tower defense game however, the player strategically places sunflowers on a lawn which generate sun energy to be used to “purchase” weapons (A.K.A peashooters).

The peashooters shoot peas (go figure) at the slowly approaching zombies until they fall over and perish. It’s a great children’s game, but I know a few adults who are into it too.

Xbox Live Integrated In Windows 8

It looks like Microsoft has just revealed something interesting about its new Xbox Live service, and that is that the new service will be integrated into Windows 8. The Vice President of Global Marketing at Microsoft’s Interactive Entertainment Business group, Mike Delman, had this to say, “[Xbox Live] has been successful on the Windows Phone. Live will be built into the PC.”

Delman continued to say that it will be the service where one gets their entertainment. It seems like Microsoft seeks to incorporate their successful devices across-platforms encouraging Xbox owners to buy a PC and Windows 8 users to buy an Xbox. Clever cross-selling strategy. If I weren’t bitter about my Xbox360 giving me the Red Ring of Death, I’d probably be a proponent of the initiative.
