Hello everyone out there in internet land. This week we go over Halo Forward Unto Dawn, Playstation Plus added 3 titles, Meet the Pyro and Assassin’s Creed III Limited Edition.
After 2 long weeks we are back and with our picks for a Xbox version of Super Smash Bros and much more.
Microsoft is holding their X10 event today in San Francisco and Bungie have announced a date for the Reach beta. The open beta for the latest Halo game will start on May 3rd, 2010. Bungie community chief Brian Jarrat let people know that this was only the tip of the iceberg for the plans they have for multiplayer.
Alright, so earlier this week we posted about Microsoft announcing the shutdown of Live for the original Xbox. In preparation Microsoft took down all of the DLC for the originals, including Halo 2’s. Well Bungie had planned to play the game on April 15th, the day Live goes down but now maybe the party might be a bit smaller. Why? Well the matchmaking for Halo 2 requires you to have all the DLC, and odds are if you have all the downloadables, you’re still playing the game. I was planning on borrowing an original Xbox to do a live stream of the last moments of the system’s online, but that looks like it won’t be happening anymore.
The fanatics have pointed out that you can get the Halo Multiplayer Map Pack disc, however 3 maps were released after this. Bungie are aware of this and plan to do something about it, what? Your guess is as good as mine, maybe the DLC will go back up? That or they could just change the playlists to not include those maps.
This screen shot led to a bunch of speculation out of the community, but Bungie shot them all down in a recent blog post. The speculation was either a bullet time mode, much like Fallout 3’s VATs. Also that it could be Natal support, but alas Bungie say it’s a glitch and even has a bug report to go along with it. The glitch occurs only in the capturing of photos, during regular gameplay it seems fine, you can bet it’ll be fixed by release.
It’s looking to be pretty decent, I liked the Animatrix shorts and this is a similar concept. Halo also has a crazy ass back story, so they can do alot with it, really looking forward to this on blu-ray.
