IGN was able to score an inside look in the demo for Halo 4, and it’s all about a return to form. Master Chief and Cortana are back and are immediately thrust into new, unfamiliar territory. Armed with just a battle riffle, our hero is forced to deal with not only Covenant hostiles, but also a new, mysterious race called the Promethians. Check out some of the new stuff in store. A Mysterious Sphere appears, is it Covenant? Promethean? or an entity of it’s own? An almost Zergling-like flanking unit of the Prometheans: The Crawler The PrometheanRead More
News released about updates coming into Blizzard’s StarCraft II and World of Warcraft. This was a direct response to the gaming community’s demand for a better online experience. One particular and big update is the StarCraft II‘s “resume game” option that would fix the online disconnect problem. For those of you reading this and not quite sure what that means, it is an update that basically fixes the automatic loss some players experience when unintentionally disconnecting from a game. You know? The one where you’re playing your game then that lag screen pops up and tells you to wait forRead More

Remember this game? Yeah, way back in the PS2 days, back when Xbox controllers were bigger than your torso, we had this. A bit later, there had been hints of Thief 4 but the game has since then gathered dust. Until now. Thief 4, or… THI4F (wouldn’t that be pronounced “thiaf” in leet speak?), has revived and we are once again hearing rumors about its development, most notably about the game using the Unreal Engine. “As for the game’s graphical engine, a few employees mention “working with the Unreal-Engine” while developing Thief 4. This is the same engine that hasRead More

We found out yesterday that our favorite land down under, simply refused to classify EA’s Syndicate, stating that,”the game’s focus on dismemberment and gunplay as some of the main reasons it exceeds the country’s 15+ maximum rating requirements.” Earlier today, EA issued a response. “It’s regrettable that government policy in Australia is denying adults the right to play Syndicate,” said an EA rep in a statement to press, adding, “The game will be not be available in Australia despite its enthusiastic response from fans.” I’m not at all surprised with this, again this is the same country that banned SilentRead More

Ubisoft released a beautiful and sexy trailer for Assassin’s Creed Revelations. This historically altered trailer not only shows you the rich and stunning environments that is Constantinople but also tells a story. Narrated by Suleiman the Magnificent, who sounds oddly similar to Malik Al-Sayf from AC1, this trailer should not be missed!
Gamespy has just posted a review for the upcoming game Battlefield 3, giving it 5 stars and a press average of 9.5. Things go from good to great in the game’s co-op mode, which can only be described as short and sweet. Comprised of six missions, playing through on normal should see you breeze through them all in just a couple of hours. Cranking it up a notch to hard sees the challenge spike massively, and due to the lack of any in-mission save, makes the experience last a lot longer. This is a good thing, as the missions withinRead More
