JohnDio Presents Emotion In Motion Part 17 [03-10-2011]

Wow. It's been over a year since the last part of Emotions In Motion but fear not as the series has not been abandoned. Lots of things happened during this year and to be honest, DSOGaming is taking most of my time. This, however, does not mean that there won't be upcoming parts of Emotions In Motion, Awakening and From There To Nowhere. As I've stated countless of times, I prefer quality over quantity and I wanted this next part of this series to be great. And trust me, it is. It's a trip full of different emotions and that's what really counts at the end of the day. Enjoy!

Section 8: Prejudice PC Performance Analysis

Section 8: Prejudice is a first-person shooter video game developed by TimeGate Studios. It is the direct sequel to the 2009 game Section 8 and is a digital download-only title that contains more content than its predecessor. It was released for PC on May 4th and it's time to see how this Unreal 3 powered game performs with modern day PC's.

As always, we used a Q9650 @ 4.2Ghz with 4GB DDR2 and a GTX295. As we mentioned, Section 8: Prejudice is a first-person shooter that is powered by Unreal 3 engine. Contrary though to all those games that are powered by Epic's engine, performance is not as good as we'd hoped to. This is particularly due to Prejudice's inability to take full advantage of quadcores. Yeap, you read it right. A game powered by Unreal 3 engine that can't scale perfectly with modern day quadcores.

March Trance Selection

And here we are today, selecting the best tunes of March 2011. March was a good trance year. We didn't have any breathtaking or mind-blowing tunes but still, we had a few good ones to keep us busy. As always, we were disappointed with the tunes of most well-known producers. It's funny but those tunes from all these 'triple-A' producers lack quality. There is something really wrong going on here and we seriously don't know what it is. Forget the 00's, even some recent years (like 2006) are way better so far than 2011. We can only hope that things will get better. Still, let's see what March had to offer us.

February Trance Selection

Let's get one thing straight. February was a shitty month. Yes, it was. In papers however, everything seemed perfect. New tunes from Bjorn Akesson, Armin, Jochen Miller, Markus Schulz (under the alias Dakota), Will Holland, Arnej, Greg Downey, Marcel Woods and so on. What could possibly go wrong? Apparently, everything went straight to hell. We can't help but feel way too disappointed from all those great producers. Their latest tunes were lacking imagination, peak levels and feeling. They were as generic as ever. Seriously now, we've heard those formulaic tunes a hundred of times and after sometime, it get's really boring.

All is not lost though, as we got four tunes that are worth mentioning. It's kind of sad that there were only four but what can we say? Just be grateful that there are at least some that are worth your hard-earned cash.

January Trance Selection

Each and every month, we'll be reviewing the trance releases of our previous month and be selecting the best of the best. January was an average month. We had high hopes from Roger Shah, Orjan Nilsen, First State and Nuera but their tracks were mediocre to say the least. It's getting really hard to find trance tunes that are worth mentioning. Still, things are not as bad as you may thing. It's just that quantity does not equal to quality. Enough of this though, let's see which were the best trance tunes of our previous month.

James Allan & Jamie Drummond - Counterpoint (Original Mix): "Counterpoint" is simply amazing and full of energy. Its intro is so powerful that sends immediately chills down your spine. As with all tracks that begin so energetic, the breakdown is critical as it can destroy it. Thankfully, its breakdown is terific. It retains the powerful vibe with an amazing melody and some amazing sound effects. The outro that comes after the breakdown is even more energetic and enters the tech area. Allan and Drummond delivered, this is a mindblowing trance track. Well done guys!
