Unreal Tournament III (3)
4 New from
I havent played the UT series for a good few years and then it was on the PC so to go back to a series on a new platform was a bit of a chancer but from what ive seen of the PC version its prospects looked good. Theres definately a familar feel about the game for those that have played before but i do not necessarily class this as a bad thing - it had everything id expected with a few extras! The graphics are stunning (but for the occasional texture loading which can be resolved through installing the game to the harddrive i think). Single player is really a glorified tutorial but its adequate enough to prepare you for online play which is what the game is ultimately for. One thing ive noticed on consoles (im fairly new i guess) is the lack of clan support, which is a shame because i think if they can replicate that community/competitive functionality on the console then the long term is looking good for ps3. I find it funny that people instantly compare the game to CoD4 when the only commonality is the genre! Both games are brilliant in their own rights and cater for all types of fps fans (for me its instant, fast-paced action with and array of weapons and powerups). I think there are some some issues to address (if they can be) but overall an excellent delivery for a PC institution to a console.
Belkin F5D7050UK 802.11g Wireless USB 2.0 Network Adapter
I live in a small flat and walls are relatively thin. My PCI network card broke so i decided to give the usb adapter a go given my circumstances (2 plasterboard walls and about 10ft seperate my desktop and the router). Sadly, its simplicity and compactness is its downfall and i cannot maintain anything more than a "Low" singnal strength with regular connection drops. Unless you want to sit next to your router (and then its probably more efficient to plug yourself in) i would advise you to get the PCI card instead - i didnt have any problems with it until it broke.
