ShackCast 28: Team Fortress 2 Changes, Battlefield Heroes, GTA4 Date, Fallen Empire, Fancy Joystick

by Chris Remo, Jan 25, 2008 2:55pm PST

In this week's ShackCast, we discussed the imminent changes to Team Fortress 2, the announcement of Battlefield Heroes, recent information regarding GarageGames' Tribes-esque Fallen Empire: Legions information, Grand Theft Auto 4's final ship date, and the monstrous system requirements for Assassin's Creed on PC.

We have impressions of Rez HD and N+ on Xbox Live Arcade as well as Advance Wars: Days of Ruin on Nintendo DS, and a few more thoughts on Burnout Paradise. There is reader mail as always--plus, Nick has been playing "fancy joystick." You'll just have to listen!

  • A game I'd recommend for said fancy joystick would be il2:Sturmovik 1946. I saw it at Gamestop recently for 20 bucks! It may be a little hardcore...but its very rewarding and will definately give you a chance to make use of your new joystick.

    Have you thought of getting rudder pedals too...I can't comment on the Saitek pedals...but the CH USB pedals I have are very nice (I've got a CH Throttle and an MS Sidewinder Force Feedback 2...but that Saitek HOTAS you've got should be very fucking nice for IL2 (though I don't know that it has FF, FF is kind of going away it seems, which is sad...as in a game like IL2 it adds a lot when you can feel the tension of the cables changing depending on the air rushing over your control surfaces).
