Friday snuck up pretty quickly this week, so I had to hustle to dig up some Diversion for you folks. Then, waxy posts a great one, so it’s a two-fer this week.
Battlefield: 1942 kept me busy for several months last year. Great online play, and the ability to drive tanks, planes, jeeps and artillery made for some crazy battles.
Now, Battlefield: Galactic Conquest answers every nerd’s dream. It’s a mod for 1942 that plants you in the Star Wars universe. Fly X-Wings and TIE Fighters, blow up the Death Star, and run the Rebels off of Hoth. Somewhere inside me, a 12-year old just danced with joy.
Battlefield: Galactic Conquest will put you in the role of an every day soldier in the Star Wars universe. You will be able to choose between the Galactic Civil war and The Clone Wars and fight by either means of Land or Air in many of the Vehicles you can see throughout the Star Wars universe.
Since Galactic Conquest requires 1942, here’s one for the gamer on a budget (translation: free game). Trigger is an open-source 3D rally car game. Looks pretty good. They’ve got 6 tracks so far, with plans for more, and network play on the horizon. Even cooler, you can make your own levels using just three bitmaps and a (short) XML file.
Have great weekend!
