Will Reach Deliver?


One question that has been plaguing my mind since Reach was officially announced was the monstrous  issue of character and plot development (or lack thereof). While the books provided an impressive intrigue for the rabid Halo aficionado- such as myself, the games sincerely lacked in that department. The storyline and character development was lackluster to the point where if the game-play mechanics weren’t standard setting for console games, the Halo series would be easy to pass up on. While they attempted to close this gaping hole in the series with the recent installment of ODST, it just didn’t do  the job for most gamers such as myself. Maybe Bungie will finally be getting around to telling critics to go and pound sand.

Bungie- we expect you to set the standards very high (as always), but please oh please don’t give us another storyline on par with a tech demo (I’m calling you out Crysis!).

CVG says Reach is ‘best shooter they’ve played’


Well, I don’t know how many shooters they’ve played if they think Reach deserves such an unprecedented accolade like the “Best. Shooter. Ever”, but I still think aside from all the hype surrounding Halo Reach, that parting statement is very significant. It could be very possible that Halo: Reach redefines FPS gaming this decade just like Halo: CE did back in 2001.

Portal 2: Whose excited?


For those of you who haven’t heard, Portal 2 is set to be released on February 9, 2011. Portal 2 is the highly anticipated to Valve’s 2007 release of the original Portal, a quirky yet brilliant first person shooter that has the user constantly solving puzzles. I would encourage everyone to look into the sequel and follow the development news leading up to the release of the much awaited Portal 2. And remember, “The Cake is a Lie”

Halo Mall Site Updates


Over the next few days if not weeks, the Halo Mall site will be receiving a major face lift. As you can already see, the template has been changed to accommodate for a  smoother user interface. Much of the work has already been accomplished and we just plan to make minor tweaks with deliberate speed to ensure an optimal transition.

Of course Halo Mall will remain fully functional during this time period and with that being said, we encourage you to check out our new Youtube Channel.

Halo: Reach Being Sold Early By Retailers


Well, maybe not by Gamestop or Amazon, but probably by your local mom & pop electronic store that just doesn’t give a damn about the actual release date. Aside from the pirated game being played on Jtagged consoles, it appears that a small portion of (very lucky) consumers were able to get their hands on a legitimate copy of the game, practically three weeks before the set release date. Despite the problems with the game spreading over torrents and early copies of Reach being sold, Microsoft still plans to release Halo: Reach on September 14th.
