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.

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
