PC Software Preview: Highland Warriors, Unreal Tournament 2003

Highland Warriors

You can play through hundreds of years of Scottish history in Highland Warriors, a new 3D RTS that hopes to revolutionise the genre with attention to detail and sheer mayhem. Your units will level up through an experience system that enables you to take villagers and turn them into master miners, hunters, or lumberjacks as they perform their tasks. The individual units and buildings will be so detailed, you'll swear you were looking at a first-person shooter. You'll choose from among four clans (Mystique, Highlanders, Merchants, and the English) as you quest to unify Scotland.

Unreal Tournament 2003

The game that made people look away from Quake II is on its way back as Unreal Tournament 2003. Ever since Counter-Strike, multiplayer shooters have been more objective-based and less straight-up action. Developer Digital Extremes is taking Epic Games' latest Unreal graphics engine and using it to revive the Deathmatch as you know it.

If you don't know the original Unreal Tournament, here's a crash course: you work your way up a ladder of Deathmatches against computer-controlled 'bots or go online and fight human-controlled characters. The point of the game is to win, win, win - and collect power-ups and über weapons along the way.

There won't be a shortage of levels, weapons, and enemies in UT2003. You'll be able to fight in 30 indoor and outdoor locations, each with up to 100 times more polygons than the original UT levels. Picky players will have 50 new characters with their own abilities and origins to choose from. You'll find new weapons as well as old standbys like the Flak Cannon, Link Gun, and Shock Rifle, and new moves like double jumps, berserker, and the translocator will ensure that no two battles turn out the same. The single-player mode will let you create your own team and develop it over time, and multiplayer will enable 32 players to blast each other into smithereens simultaneously.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
