Halo 3 – We will have co-op

Although I am not a big fan of Halo, it’s nice to see more and more games get co-op, especially a 4 player one.

It’s time for us to sack up and tell you what’s what regarding online co-op.

So you were probably wondering why we didn’t want to commit to two player co-op online over Xbox Live. We certainly got plenty of mail asking, no, demanding that we make it happen. Of course we were working on it, but we were also working on something better. Not two player co-op. Not three-player co-op, but up to four player co-op. Online. On Xbox Live, or sure, System Link if you prefer.

That is correct – up to four player co-op in Campaign mode on Xbox Live or System Link.

Spartan Maddness on BluRay

The movie that caused a mad rush of insane user movies over at YouTube with the likes of Unitied300 [my favorite of the lot] has made it to Bluray this week. If you haven’t seen this flick, you owe it to yourself to at least go to a friends house to check out the BluRay release. If it looks anything like the like the IMAX presentation that I saw, then buy it if you own the PS3, or Bluray player.

If Spartan Warfare isn’t your thing and your stuck in the current times, you can also pick up Shooter, staring M.Waldberg and D. Glover on BluRay.  It was good seeing Danny in this role, even though he played a villain but this movie is seriously underrated.  It’s akin to the old westerns you would watch with your uncles growing up; one man, got played, takes revenge the hard way.  Simple and to the point.

Mark Rein dropkicks Bungie’s E3

Ouch

Microsoft selected this year’s E3 to give Halo fans their first real glimpse of Halo 3′s single-player campaign, but Epic boss Mark Rein reckons that worked against the company and the sequel at the show.

“I think that [showing the single-player campaign] hurt Halo 3 at E3″, Rein told us when we caught up with him for a chat this week. “Halo 3 didn’t win any game of the show awards that I could see. Well, because they didn’t have to show Halo. There was no need”.

“I’m sure if they’d actually had a big Halo 3 presence, if Microsoft had set up eight machines or 12 or 16 machines so you could sit and play it, it would have won all kinds of awards. But they don’t need to because, like me, everyone’s already placed their order… So I think that worked against them at E3,” the Epic boss added.

Are Consoles Holding PC Gaming Back?

Are this-generation consoles holding back cutting edge PC/DX10/Vista game development? That’s what Epic’s Mark “Showtime” Rein believes according to a chat he had with C&VG.

“Publishers are generally putting their money where the highest return is, and in the past that’s been on consoles and I think that’s still the case. So if you build the game that’s a really super amazing high-end game, how do you make all the money you could make from that game, because it’ll be too high end eventually to be on PS3 or Xbox 360″

Rein reckons there are developers who will dabble with DirectX 10 and a couple of PC-only games, or games that their big market is PC, will push the envelope a bit, “But I don’t see people going way, way over what these consoles can do because then they can’t sell the game… they have to dumb the games down for the consoles. Consoles will pretty much define what the next five years of games look like on the PC”, Rein added.

However, he said that what we’ll also see from PC games in the meantime is the ability to turn everything up a visual notch.

Round 1Million … Fight!

I love fighting games. Don’t you? Wuss. I gave Virtua Fighter some slack since heard that it would be making it Online but in my book its one of those too late to make amends kind of situations. Swimming around the 日本語 PSN PS3 browser I saw the below image for a downloadable game for 2,000Yen [~$16.00]. I hope to God we are the first to report on this, given that its almost 3:00 o’clock Monday morning before I head in to work at 7. Why am I up this early? Never mind that, see the picture below:

Still think it’s fake? Well here’s a picture from most my HD monitor:

Here’s a quick look at what the hulk will look like in next years reboot of the hulk movie called : The Incredible Hulk. And to make up for the drama fest that was the first hulk movie, this one will find the green skin fighting the abomination! check the quick glimpse of what hulk will look like below

Here it is folks, the first official teaser for the next batman movie. Although there’s no footage you still get to hear the joker speak and his crazy laugh. Batman Begins is my #1 comic book movie and i can’t wait for this one! Check it out:

IRONMAN movie videogame footage

Check out some first footage from the Ironman movie videogame by sega (shown at this year’s comic con in san deigo). I must say so far it’s looking pretty decent, especially his character model and although the levels may look alittle sparse, keep in mind this game has a ways off before actual release( it’ll be hitting shelves along side the movie in the spring of next year). Im feelin the over the shoulder view during the flight and the missile air grab is a pretty cool move. Peep the video below and keep an eye out on this one!

Conan the Barbarian makes it to Wii

If you didn’t know, it looks like Conan will be not only hitting the 360 and PS3 but will also be released on the WII. What’s the big deal? The game is hell’a violent and, yes my wanton God of War gamer, it does have very similar mechanics, but, it looks good!

This title by THQ is not be confused with the MMORPG game Hyborian Adventures. The game will not only include the obvious abilities to tear off the limbs off your foes, but you will also gain the ability to use elemental magic and perform summons that allow you call the foul beasts, evil crows, and Lord knows what else. So far its shaping up to be a descent single player adventure game.
