Halo: Reach – Deliver Hope

Nothing left for the count down to finish until the release of Halo Reach. I don’t know what to expect but my expectations are high, I’m expecting lots of gaming hours and lots of fun. I’m looking forward to getting my hands on it and playing endless hours of multiplayer and getting annihilated, and beating the campaign mode and kicking ass on XBox Live! When I see these teasers I think they should really make the movie, I’m annoyed they haven’t yet.

Halo – Reach – Trailer & More

This game is going to be a lot of the original Halo and something new to the game play. Now seeing the video trailer made me jump, there is going to be a SPACESHIP! I just can’t believe there is going to be a spaceship, thats going to be cool. Combat in outer space in the form of dog fighting it going to be another level of fun and madness. I just can’t wait for the game in September, they have really worked nonstop to perfect the game and from all the write ups and beta game reviews it looks like its going to be that way for sure. Watching the trailer below will get your blood pumping, it just can’t get any better.

Master Chief is Real

Now this is as real as it gets, Gixxer85 from Malaysia painstakingly recreated the Master Cheif suit down to every detail. Then going to an abandoned building with his custom Spartan suit to be photographed by professional photographers. He even equipped his helmet to have an LED powered helmet and fans to keep him cool while wearing the helmet. You can see the detail in his armor and helmet, now I really wish they were making the movie.

Halo Reach – Kuwaitis Kick @$$

I have been waiting for Halo Reach for a while now, every iteration of Halo just keeps getting better. With this they overhauled the whole gaming system, taking it to another level so that people can enjoy the game even more. Now this montage by a group of 5 Kuwaiti gamers playing the Beta version of Halo gets my blood pumping, I so would want to join them in their rampage and killing sprees! The guy with the warhammer is pretty damn good, he is killing people left right and center. My favorite is the rocket launcher, I just love that weapon, but I want to have a little more ammo. There are new techniques to keep in mind when fighting because sneaking up on people is now completely different then before and it looks damn good. It was fun watching these teams battle it out in the team tournament, and at the end the blue team won.

Review: Halo Legends

Halo Legends is a collection of 8 stories from the most creative minds of Japan, taking the story of Halo and turning into an animated feature. 8 Separate episodes with different animation, story lines and ideas each, but there is a subtle connection and flow between them. They have taken this to another level, the different types of animation are amazing, and some better then the others. Master Chief and Spartans are on another level, showing that there are different types of Spartans, they are different then the ODSTs, they are bred to fight armies and destroy the Convenant. Each one of these episodes depicts a different angle of the Halo story, and each time you are amazed. The only reason I didn’t give it a full 5 is because it leaves you wanting more, I wish they made a whole series for Halo with at least a full storyline and arch, there is so much depth available in the story that they could use. If you are even a remote fan of Halo then you should watch this and you will love it.

Halo Reach – MultiPlayer Galore

Reach takes place in a futuristic science fiction setting during the year 2552, days before the events of the 2001 video game Halo: Combat Evolved. Humans, under the auspices of the United Nations Space Command (UNSC), have been waging a long war against a collective of alien races known as the Covenant. By the events of Reach, almost all of humanity’s interstellar colonies have fallen. Reach itself is an Earthlike colony that serves as the UNSC’s main military hub. In addition to the military presence, the colony is home to 500 million civilians.

The game follows the actions of Noble Team, a UNSC special operations unit composed of elite supersoldiers known as Spartans. Players assume the role of an unnamed new addition to the team, identified by the call sign Noble 6. Noble Team’s leader is Carter-259, a no-nonsense soldier. His second-in-command, Kat-320, has a bionic arm; together Carter and Kat are the only two remaining original members of Noble Team. The other members include heavy weapons specialist Jorge-052, Emile-239, and marksman Jun-226.

As a loyal Halo fan I think I just keep wait for each iteration of this game and how they are going to top it, for a while Halo 3 was going to be the last release as they were working on it but luckily they felt that there was still more to do. Then there was ODST which was fantastic but still not enough, it didn’t satisfy my hunger for this game, we finished it within hours and now Halo Reach has come to pass. From what I have read and seen I have been told that they have gone back to the drawing board and reworked the whole graphics and AI engine, meaning the bad guys are meaner and the explosions are bigger. The best part is always the story, this time about how the Spartans came to be and somewhat the story of Masterchief, but even with one player they knew to concentrate on the multiplayer game which is what we keep playing again and again. Just by looking at the trailer below it looks to be a lot more detailed, meaner, tougher, and a lot more fun. You can really customize the your Spartan this time around and it seems the weapons are more potent then they were before. I can’t wait to get my hands on this game, I will dedicate my time to finish it and annihilate those in multiplayer.

Halo ODST – Done

I pre-ordered Halo ODST over a month ago, and it was well worth the wait. I didn’t know what to expect and I didn’t want to read anything that was written up about it, this is the only game that I finished since Halo 3, and I didn’t even manage to finish Halo Wars even though I want to. Incidentally I was playing KillZone 2 on PS3 to try it out and to hear what all the fuss was about but it doesn’t even compare to the Halo Series. after about 18 hours of intense gaming co-op campaign sessions on Halo ODST we surprisingly reached the end, I was really enjoying playing campaign mode on Halo ODST, it was better then Halo 2 and Halo 3.

What’s different about Halo ODST is that you have a sort of Night Vision system which works great in the dark and your fighting monsters that you can really kill, not those sludgy creatures that get annoying, even if they are tough they die after some bullets. The game feels more refined and its nice that there is a really well made story line attached to the original Halo. I just hope that Bungie keeps on making Halo games with different stories and hopefully move forward with it, its once of the few games that I have ever kept on repeating.

Now for the stats, I have done decently well but fallen far from those who are living online and killing non-stop and refining their skills. In Halo 3 I get anniahlated pretty quickly, except if I have rocket launcher so thats a different story. Halo ODST doesn’t have direct multiplayer but it has Firefights, which are swarms of killing those monsters again again, wave after wave of monsters getting tougher every time and you only have so many lives, weapons, and health packs. That is turning out to be very interesting and I’m thoroughly enjoying it, but I need to get some practice, you can have it co-op with two players and you can have more players in the firefight if your friends join you from X-Box Live, but I am still getting used to it.

Overall Bungie have made an amazing game, there was just so much that was done, but I was hoping for more so this time around I’m going to play on a harder setting. They have done such a great job with other iterations of Halo that we expect and want so much, and I was hoping for the multiplayer to be upgraded with some of the game play from the campaign which gives you night vision at night, enabling you to really shoot better. If you haven’t played it then you are missing out.

Halo ODST – Live Trailer

I have preordered this game a long time back, but I don’t think I’m getting the special features because I’m ordering it through Amazon. But check out the live trailer they did for Halo ODST it gives you a real feel to the game, I really do hope they come out with the movie soon. The funny part are the “Red vs. Blue” Episodes about how the normal Halo players are afraid of the ODST players. I think we might have a chance with ODST but still get are asses handed to us.
