Game Review

Twin stick shooters are, for whatever reason, a staple of all console launches. The Xbox 360 saw Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved win over the hearts of many. Resogun really makes me wish I owned a PlayStation 4. Nano Assault Neo was the Wii U launch game I enjoyed most. The Xbox One has Halo: Spartan Assault.

Halo: Reach Review

The uninitiated often ask what sets Halo apart from other games - what exactly is it that's made it so popular over the last decade?

The Lesser Man Respawns in the latest Halo: Reach Multiplayer ViDoc.

The Halo: Reach beta is less than two weeks away, and anticipation is understandably through the roof. Rather than doing the responsible thing and calming everybody down, encouraging people to take advantage of the warming weather and reminding them that they still have jobs or families to think about, Bungie is stoking the flames with a new, positively badass multiplayer trailer. God bless them. Read More

Yesterday brought news of Fable II's Knothole Island DLC, and that it brought with it a bevy of new items and playthings. And one of those playthings is none other than an assault rifle from Halo.
