Halo 4 might be out right now and Bungie didn't have anything to do with it, but they are making some headlines in the news lately for their next project. The game is codenamed Destiny and it's their first title under a publishing agreement with Activision. Bungie has been working on the game since it split with Microsoft two years ago, and many thought it was going to be some sort of MMO hybrid. But that doesn't seem to be the case, the game is still a shooter, though it does expand on some concepts Bungie explored at the end of their Halo life-cycle.

Halo: Combat Evolved was the game that sold the Xbox. Ten years have gone by and Halo has made its mark on console gaming by becoming an absolute juggernaut in the market and a series worth billions of dollars. So it should come as no surprise that the game that started it all has already been remade in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. We dive into the remastered game, its co-op and multiplayer, and come out with only a few plasma burns to show.
Ten years ago today Microsoft changed the console war from a battle between two, to a battle between three. The Xbox, a big black box loaded with a "duke" controller became a staple of hardcore gamers. It contained a hard drive and a network connection, and it was the beginning of a big change for consoles. The system saw many great co-op games over it's life span, though none may be more iconic than the one it launched with in Halo.
It's hard to believe that 10 years ago today, Microsoft launched the Xbox console. At the time I was a college student and I remember thinking - there's no way Microsoft can compete with Sony or Nintendo. Yet, there I was on launch day with my college roomate picking up the big black and green box with a copy of Halo. That weekend we spent the entire time playing through the game in co-op.
This is it folks. The last big week for co-op releases. There are still a few games coming out this year, but tomorrow marks the last day of the season with multiple retail co-op launches. I hope your wallets are intact.
A new trailer for Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary debuted this morning. The video is heavy on story scenes and light on actual gameplay. Actually, it doesn’t show any gameplay at all. Then again, the story sequences in Halo games are always rendered in-engine, so we can still get a good feel for how pretty the remake is.
