Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary for $30 & Pre-Order Goodies

Feel like seeing where the Halo phenomenon started? Feel like reliving the “good ol’ days” of the Halo-verse. Feel like reminiscing at that one spot where you got sniped for the very first time.. only to be sniped again because you were too busy staring at some fucking polygonal scenery reminiscing about a time you let a bullet go through your head!! Oh, did I forget to mention that all of those classic maps are going to be remastered in HD.. ’cause that’s kinda important.

Well you’ll be able to do all of that on November 15, 2011 when “Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary” is released for the Xbox 360. Oh did I forget to mention that (through Amazon) is only 30 DOLLARS! Oh yes my lovable worshipers you did read that correctly. But just to add some more validity to this epic announcement, allow me to humble you with the details straight from Amazon’s page.

$10 Credit Plus Pre-order Bonus
Pre-order Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and get a $10 Amazon credit good toward the purchase of items shipped and sold by Amazon.com (certain exclusions apply, including Kindle books, MP3s, and video rentals and downloads) as well as Master Chief Avatar Armor and the Grunt Funeral Skull (once activated, every grunt’s methane tank will explode like a plasma grenade when killed). The promotional code for the credit will be e-mailed within two days after the product ships. The access code for the armor and skull will be packaged inside the game box. Offer valid when shipped and sold by Amazon.com, while supplies last. Limit one per customer. Amazon reserves the right to change or terminate this promotion at any time.

Okay so it’s $30 dollars when you use the $10 credit, but still, what else are you going to use that ten dollar credit on? Socks? I don’t think so, there are digital aliens out there and a ginger in some far away state THAT NEEDS TO DIE (digitally)! Oh shit.. I completely forgot the link to make it easier for all of you to pre-order this awesome slice of epic over at Amazon. There we go.. all better now.

Well there you have it, feel free to express your gratitude towards me in our comments section below, also Like us on Facebook and stalk us on Twitter.

As usual, thanks for reading.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Only Needs One Disc (Xbox 360)

 

For those of you who were annoyed at having to change your disc after 10-20 hours of playing the original Final Fantasy 13 on your Xbox 360, then I have good news for you! No longer will you have to do that tiresome process of getting up, walking that extremely long journey over to your Xbox 360, pushing the eject button, take the disc out of the tray, place the swapped disc back in the box, then place the requested “new” disc into the Xbox 360 disc tray, push the disc tray back into the 360, use a towel to wipe the sweat off of your body, drink a gallon of Gatorade (you’re gonna need the electrolytes), walk that same journey back to your gaming seat, lift that ever-so heavy controller and finally resume gaming.. after watching the mandatory cutscene.

Famitsu has just confirmed this so don’t look at me like I’m trying to start an insane rumor. Toriyama insists that FFXIII-2.0937458 is just as big as FFXIII, they just minimized the CG cutscenes and just implemented event scenes where everything is in real time (I better not see “press A to do a flashy spin”).

Max Payne 3 First Trailer

The very first Max Payne 3 trailer is starting to make a tidal wave on the internet. And for very good reason, it features a drunk Max Payne. Some girl he was trying to protect got kidnapped by an organization. And of course, gunfire, explosions and the magical, mystical, stupendous extrrrrrrrrravaganza that is “Bullet Time”. Also.. forget about drive-bys, it’s all about the train-bys (you’ll see it in the video).

Max Payne 3 is set to release in March 2012 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.

Confirmed: Windows 8 Will Have Xbox LIVE

Today, Microsoft finally confirmed what everyone and their dog was gossiping about. At Microsoft’s Build Conference in Anaheim, Microsoft announced/confirmed that Windows 8 will have Xbox LIVE built in.¬† Xbox Live’s Major Nelson was quoted as saying Windows 8 is

“part of our vision to bring you all the entertainment you want, shared with the people you care about, made easy.”

 

Kind of a vague and general description if you ask me. But whatever, it’s a confirmation of something I suspected was going to happen so that’s enough to fill my ego bar by five points. I guess we’ll know all of the details between the Windows 8 and Xbox LIVE fusion when the Live dashboard update hits the world in the next couple of months. I just wonder if Microsoft hasn’t made PC gamers too pessimistic about the LIVE brand since the wholly unreliable and clusterfuck that is Games for Windows LIVE.

I have a few other speculations as well.

  1. Will this mean I’ll finally be able to enjoy the luxury of having some random prepubescents who have just learned their first cuss words and are now going to say them as loud and frequent as they possibly can.

 

2.¬†¬† Does this mean I’ll finally get to hear the hyper ventilation of untalented twats as they argue about which among them is the most “MLG” whilst they attempt to hoard all of the power weapons?

 

Okay, I’m out of speculations. In all seriousness, I hope this means PC developers get to utilize all of the advantages of Xbox LIVE. And honestly, I wouldn’t mind some cross-platform gaming & chat. ūüôā As always, I also hope that this doesn’t turn out like Vista. (*crosses fingers*)

But yeah, as always thanks for reading. Feel free to Like us on Facebook and stalk us on Twitter.

Child of Eden Kinect Bundle Confirmed

Microsoft just announced their plans to bundle Child of Eden via download code with the current Kinect hardware. The bundle will be released in all XBOX Live regions and is set to hit retailers sometime next week for the same price as the current bundle offer. ¬†This game has¬†received wonderful reviews and nailed an 84/100 Metascore¬†but despite the good reviews, the sales since its original launch haven’t been so great. It’s one of those games that goes¬†unappreciated¬†despite its good qualities.

 

However, ¬†with this new bundle offer,¬†Tetsuya Mizuguchi’s Q Entertainment will be able to reach ¬†broader gaming audiences. Especially now that you can get the Kinect ¬†sensor, Kinect Adventures and a download code for Child of Eden, ¬†for just $150. Not a bad deal for you penny-pinching bastards.

The Playstation version of CoE will come out sometime in September with Playstation Move support and awesome 3D!
