Halo Wars Will Have Legendary Feature

Ah, Halo Wars. The folks at Ensemble Studios have a lot to live up to in making this game. After all, they are making a Halo RTS. The jump from FPS to RTS is a big one, but there are several ways to make the transition easier. The main one is "have features from previous games." So far Ensemble appears to be doing great there, as the game has co-op, many of the familiar Halo characters and vehicles, and so forth. However, Ensemble isn't done placating the Halo masses. Through their monthly update, they have revealed another familiar Halo feature: Legendary difficulty. The game will feature the accurately-titled difficulty mode, which has claimed untold hours of peoples lives, as well as too many broken controllers to count. Apparently Halo Wars version of Legendary is no slouch.

The 'Tetris Party' Fitness Plan?

Earlier this year, we brought you the news that Tetris will be coming to Nintendo's WiiWare service.  That's hardly surprising, given that the classic puzzler has been released in some form on most Nintendo systems.  However, thanks to 1Up, more details have arrived, some interesting and some that will make you scratch your head in befuddlement.  News from the former category: the official title is 'Tetris Party', and the game will indeed feature a co-op mode, as pictured above.  Co-op is one of 18 different modes, 10 of which are said to be new to the series.  The head scratcher?  One of the control schemes will be the Wii Balance Board.  Yes, THAT Balance Board.  The jury is still out as to whether this will be the best way to lose weight of all time, or the next Virtual Boy-magnitude failure.  I guarantee there's more depth to Tetris than to Wii Fit, but somehow, I fear the repurcussions.  It's bad enough to be beaten by Japanese virtuosos in Tetris DS Wi-Fi, but my self-esteem would plummet if some soccer mom whooped up on me while she was trying to make up for last night's Ben and Jerry's binge.  One final note: I estimate 4 hours from the game's release before Wii Fit Girl wannabes hit YouTube shaking their buns to block matching action.

LittleBigPlanet Information Cavalcade

Ah, LittleBigPlanet. In some ways, the game could have one of the best co-op modes around. What is more cooperative than building levels and working with physics? As of now we can only ask questions, as the game is not set to come out until this October. Well, to tide you over, Kotaku has nothing short of an avalanche of information about the game. Some of the more interesting feature include the ability to wear a Tron suit in-game, as well as a simple-yet-complex emotion feature, which enables you so show varying degrees of emotion. Nice!

Get Those Gears Achievements Now

We know you're probably looking forward to the release of Gears of War 2 this November.  However, it looks like you may want to pop in the original for a bit and make sure you've got all those achievements.  Joystiq gives us some information from the recent Comic-Con, straight from Cliff Bleszinski.  He announced that earning achievements from Gears 1 will unlock certain features in Gears 2, like extra playable characters, for example.  At this time, it is unknown which achievements he is referring to.  You may just want to get as many as possible in the meantime.  Personally, I think this is a pretty neat little bonus for those who have played the first game, though I certainly hope there's an alternate way to get these same features unlocked.

Geometry Wars 2: 3D Mode Hack

Xbox 360 Fanboy points out a unique little post in the Bizarre forums.  Someone found a small little hack that allows you to see what Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 would look like if it was fully 3D (which technically it is).   The trick is simple, simply press right bumper and the back button at anytime to enter a 3D mode.  The game pauses though, so you won't be able to actually play, but you can fly around and change the perspective for some neat screenshots.

Co-Op Classics: Serious Sam

This week in Co-Op Classics, I have to give a big thank you to Co-Optimus user wayspooled.  He recently posted a list of co-op games in the forums, and one of those games in particular got me all misty eyed when I saw it.  A glorious mix of Duke Nukem and shiny, real 3D graphics, Serious Sam was a seriously great game.

Too Human is Golden

With a release date fast approaching, Too Human has crossed another milestone. The game has officially gone gold, as reported by the Gamerscore Blog. This means that the game should meet it's August 19th release date. The game has gotten some mixed opinions, particularly as of late. So, if you do have some reservations about the game, make sure you play its demo. I still am excited about the game, not just because it comes out on my birthday. Anyone else interested in the "Diablo meets Norse Mythology" blend that is Too Human?
