You can also hook it up to your tv with 720p video output via HDMI should you want to show off your mad Farm Frenzy skills while at your buddy’s house.
Well here are some more videos from GDC 2010 from various sources such as Gamepro, Gamespot, 1up etc etc. Started another article because the previous one was long enough and had enough videos in it. Enjoy.
Warpath by Synthetic Reality is a multiplayer (either human or bots) game that takes place in the future. You can play it as a strategy battle game or a simulation game that doesn’t end. You can colonize uninhabited planets, buy weapons and ships, shop, mine planet, fight and more. This game is still currently in development even though it’s on the market but is actually pretty solid right now with some good graphics and interactive gameplay.
