PC Gaming Roundup - Monday Edition
Here's your Monday Edition of PC gaming goodness, including a few bits of patch news and the release of a deauthorization tool for Crysis Warhead.
War Plan Pacific Patched
Shrapnel Games announced that its new patch for "acclaimed" wargame War Plan Pacific addresses "the dreaded Model 99 Bug" as well as enhances the overall gameplay experience. Although the patch history resides here, the 21.4MB file adds extra feedback for base growth, three pre-set volume levels, several boosts to Allied AI and more. Head here to download the patch.
Orchard Now Available
Majesco's farm simulator Orchard is now available for purchase and download. Rated E for everyone, the new game tasks players to manage all aspects of a growing, working farm and roadside farm stand. According to the company, players must "dig in to salvage their granduncle Fred's orchard from its horrible state of disrepair." Consumers can download Orchard and play for free up to one hour.
Unreal Tournament 3 Mega-Patched Soon
Beyond Unreal threw up a massive list of fixes, changes and improvements Epic Games is currently working on, including major enhancements to the Server browser, improved networking performance, an award system using Steam Achievements and tons more. The list is crazy long, looking as if the update will require another publication in the same manner as 203 was updated and re-released as 2004.
Crysis Warhead Deactivation Tool
FileShack is hosting a tool that will deactivate Crysis Warhead on one PC without installing the game, freeing up one of five slots so it can be used to authorize Crysis Warhead on another machine. This 1.04MB tool is an official release from Crytec, so no worries about piracy or attached trojans here.
More to come.
