Halo Wars to End Stat Tracking, Rage Mode Activated

Console fans have one less RTS game to stat-track.  Halo Wars is about to receive a fifth title update.  This update will do two things: 1) Fix some theatre issues, and 2) Prepare the game to be disconnected from halowars.com.  The forums are transitioning to Halo Waypoint, which means the Halo Wars forums will be taken "completely offline".  What does this mean to current players?  Well, it means that they can expect an exclusive avatar for the Halo Waypoint forums, and an end to their precious, precious stats.

Halo Waypoint Co-Op Night: Halo Wars Night

It's been a few months since we've had a Halo Waypoint Co-Op Night, but we're back to our regularly scheduled programming with the event. This month marks the one year anniversary of Halo Wars, and we're celebrating the only way we know how - by playing it.

Halo Wars Now Available Via Games on Demand

We reported not too long ago that Halo Wars, in addition to a couple other co-op titles, went Platinum and was now available for the low, low price of $29.99.  Well now Microsoft's sweetened the co-op pot by offering Halo Wars via download through its Games on Demand service.  While the game may not have been as widely popular as its more traditional FPS brother, Halo 3: ODST, the game is one of only a few co-op titles we've reviewed that has received the full 5 out of 5 for its co-op score.  All that co-op fun without ever having to leave the comfort of your home?  Now that's a deal.

Three More Co-Op Titles Go Platinum

Three more co-op titles have landed on the XBox 360's Platinum Hits list: Fable 2, Gears of War, and Halo Wars.  While we weren't too keen about the way co-op was handled in Fable 2, it was still a fun game in its own right and there may be some potential for a "save file tie-in" between Fable 2 and Fable 3Halo Wars provides a very solid co-op RTS experience on the 360, with each player controlling their own troops but sharing the resources as they fight off the Covenant forces.  As for Gears of War, it offers the same co-op experience as its successor, with a few great moments of its own.  Each of these titles costs $29.99 so now may be a good time to use some of those lingering gift cards you got from Christmas.

Co-Op Casual Friday: Halo Wars Mega Bloks

You're probably thinking, hey, what's this?  A toy?  Isn't this a column about kid and family friendly video games?  Well, yes, it is.  But is there any thing more kid friendly than a toy?  Certainly there is not, especially when the toy is based on a fantastic video game.  As soon as we learned about the existence of Halo Wars Mega Bloks, it was a foregone conclusion that we'd own them.  Building our own Halo vehicles, with adorable little soldiers inside, is a lot of fun, and was certainly a cooperative effort!

Halo Wars Goes Lil' and Cute With Mega Blocks

I'm not quite sure how this one got past my radar.  Halo Wars is the latest franchise getting its own construction toy treatment.  Mega Bloks brings us the Halo Wars Authentic Collector's series.  Right now, just a few sets are available, ranging from the Warthog, pictured above, to a sweet box including Hawk vs. Banshee, Aerial Assault.

Halo Wars DLC Co-op Impressions

With the release of Halo Wars DLC "Strategic Options," we decided to give it a test drive in the name of Co-op. These three new modes are available through the skirmish menu, and add a certain flare to simple seek-and-destroy gameplay. Nick "BApenguin" and I tried out each one of these, and wanted to share that experience.
