Interplay announces MDK2 for Wii, MDK2 HD for PC

BioWare's cult shooter returns to PC and Wii

Details are still scarce, but according to a press release issued by Interplay and Beamdog earlier today, MDK2, BioWare's quirky cult-classic third-person shooter, will see a re-release on the Nintendo Wii as a downloadable WiiWare title, as well as a high-definition PC port, aptly titled MDK2 HD. The re-releases are currently slated for Winter 2010.

"MDK2 was a great title to work on and we're happy to have some of the original team working on these new versions," said Trent Oster, former BioWare employee and co-founder of developer Beamdog.

Originally released on the PC and Sega Dreamcast in 2000, MDK2, the sequel to Shiny Entertainment's MDK, was a successful third-person shooter noted for its quirky sense of humor and multi-character gameplay. This will be the first installment in the MDK franchise since the revised release of MDK2: Armageddon for the Playstation 2 in 2001.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
