Crysis Warhead!


Electronic Artists (EA) have announced that they will be releasing a sequal to the PC killing Crysis. But! will it be as demanding as the first game was? When Crysis was first released people were going out and spending thousands of dollars on computer parts in order to max our Crysis. I can remember when folks were saying, “Hey, i run 2 8800 GTS’s in Sli and i can play Crysis on high”. That setup is realy quite out dated now, and looks to be that they just wasted their cash on two crappy cards. This is a perfect example of how quick technology is moving, whats great today will be crappy in a few months, and the only way to keep up will be to update which means you are spending your hard earned dollars.

Now, by the time Crysis warhead will be released, it would have been about one year since the first game was realsed. This means one years worth of technological improvements, which should mean where in for a killer. A monster of a game with the best graphics we’ve ever seen on a PC game yet. If Crysis Warhead is to live up to its originality, i believe graphics wise we’re in for a treat. But, there’s that problem again .. will your PC be able to cope playing the game? If you are looking at buying a graphics card now, by the time Crysis Warhead is released it will be out dated. Even before the game is released, it’s causing problems for it’s fans. EA is even selling its own branded computers guaranteeing to perform well while playing the game. But i highly recommend you don’t purchase this PC, and by saying that .. do not buy any PC’s or parts from LightStorm Computers.

Will Crysis Warhead live up to its hype? maybe, maybe not. we will just have to wait this one out.

Google Chrome BETA

If you’ve been to Google’s homepage lately you would have heard of the new browser that they have released; Google Chrome. The beta version was released today (3rd sept). it will be interesting to see how much market share Google can grasp in compeition with Internet Explorer and Firefox.


  • Blacklists for protection against phishing and malware.
  • Sandboxing for malware protection.
  • Plugins run in separate processes so if a website crashes it will only take down that tab and not the whole browser like in Firefox.
  • Fast website loading time.
  • A new tab page that makes regular browsing more efficient.
Transition from Firefox.
Firefox has developed a large market share among computer users after people were sick of the problems with Internet Explorer. As soon as you install Google Chrome you will notice all your bookmarks can be automatically imported from Firefox so you won’t have to re-add any. The two main differences I have noticed is you can’t open another tab when middle mouse clicking the home tab (which you can enable by Customise>Options>show home page button) and an inability to scroll down after clicking the scroll wheel on a mouse.
Example of the new tab page:
