31 05 2011

The demo is supposed to include both online and local co-op.  So get on there and download this and let us know what you think of Obsidian Entertainment’s latest game.


Xbox Live Arcade: June 1st, 2011

30 05 2011

Sorry for the false information.  It appears that we will have no new game this week on Xbox Live Arcade.  Pretty strange.  Again, sorry for the mislead.

Crazy Machines: Elements ( MSP)

In grand Crazy Machines tradition, players must create wacky chain reactions using different parts and accomplish the tasks set out in their mission, from knocking vases over to blowing out candles. Players can also use lots of new parts besides the elements, including cloud machines, pinwheels and flamethrowers.

Crazy Machines Elements has three game modes. In Puzzle mode, players must finish 100 partially-built chain reaction machines using the parts specified to accomplish the various tasks. Inventors can create true chain reaction marvels that obey the laws of physics and not only satisfy the requirements of the task, but also demand some serious brain power, inventiveness and physical out-of-the-box thinking.

Rumor Mill: Gears of War: Exile & Halo HD To Appear At E3 2011

30 05 2011

I’m sure by now we have all heard the rumor of Microsoft making a Gears of War title for the Xbox 360 Kinect. Gears of War: Exile is the name that has been labeled for this, but there has been no confirmation if this is a Kinect title or if it’s not.

That being said, Microsoft has said that this years’ E3 they are going all out for the hardcore Kinect audience which has not games to date at this point to satisfy them.  So could Gears of War: Exile be a Kinect title? Yes, it’s extremely possible.  Will it appear at E3?  I have no doubt that it will show it’s face at E3.  Will we see it soon? Well…if it’s anything like the Kinect: Star Wars game….well, that’s all I will say.

Also, with the 10 year anniversay of Halo coming up, 343 Studios might be cooking up something as well for this years’ E3.  Rumors are abound of a Halo: Combat Evolved HD upgrade coming out soon.  That would not suprise me at all seeing how there is not a current Halo game announced.  We all know how Microsoft likes to showboat one of their biggest franchises at E3.

So do I think Halo HD is coming.  Definately.  There are way too many magazine publications talking about it for it not to be true.  I just wonder if they are going for a full retail release or if they are going to release it on Xbox Live the way they are doing Resident Evil HD?
