Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Co-Op Review

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.

Join the Halo Living Monument as Xbox and Halo Turn 10

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.

Halo Anniversary Achievements and Kinect Details Revealed

Yelling "ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCK" at your Kinect sadly won't unlock achievements for you in Halo Combat Evolved: Anniversary, but it will allow you to chuck a grenade.  Well, you have to say "grenade" for you to throw a grenade.  Other voice commands include the ability to reload or switch between the HD and Classic graphic options.  Sadly it seems my dreams of turning you into an in-game Cortana are not realized with the power of Kinect.

New York Comic-Con 2011 In Pictures

I just got back from this year's New York Comic-Con.  This three day event takes place at the Javitz center right in midtown Manhattan and features plenty of geeky goodness in the form of comics, video games, board games and much more.  This year's NYCC was the biggest yet - taking up almost the entire convention center show floor.  It was JAM PACKED with people, I was amazed at just how crowded it was.  Perhaps...a little too crowded as it was tough to get in to look at all the goods on display.

The latest title update for Halo Reach has finally put an end to the issue with gamers needing a HDD to play co-op

Finally You Can Play Halo Reach in Co-Op with No HDD!

A new title update has been launched for Halo: Reach!  Who cares (I hear you ask) when Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is out November 15th?  Apart from the millions of people still regularly playing the game, co-op fans should also take note.  Some of you may remember the co-op controversy at launch, when owners of HDD free 360s could not play the game in co-op.  This has finally been fixed in the latest patch, along with a multitude of other tweaks and twiddles designed to draw Reach and Anniversary together.

Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary Trailer Teases Terminals

This new video from 343 Industries doesn't have much hard information.  It's so much fluff.  It does have the Halo music going for it, which means fanboys will get a chill.  The Terminals will provide a little backstory for players in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversaryas well as offer hints of what to expect in Halo 4 .  You can see some intense animated cut scenes, as well as a flaming Spartan.  Out of all the jokes that just entered my mind, not one of them is fit to print here.
