Halo series?

If you really think about it, when the very first Halo came out, everybody was crazy about it! If you didn’t have it, you technically weren’t a gamer. When I first played that game I was hooked, and it was a great game, why not? Halo was a gamers best friend. Next in line was Halo 2, after the first great Halo game, the sequel should be good and expected to be better than the first. It wasn’t as addicting but it was still fun and playable, once again it was great for party games and just something to do when you got bored. Xbox live also made it extremely fun to game with other people instead of just your friends.

Now this is where the problem steps in, Halo 3.. From my personal experience, I can say that the Halo series has been giving up on their games, it was an amazing game at first, but then they just seemed to be putting something together and trying to make it great. Halo 3 did not match up with the story line and didn’t even make sense. Aliens and little flood creatures were cool. But flying monkeys? oook…. I didn’t like this concept of the game, they needed an new enemy for the Master Chief so they put in monkeys…

Alright, Xbox live was still fun, but it seemed like they took out some of the same capabilities as Halo 2, such as the ability to jump farther and avoid grenades easier along with dodging the hammer is impossible. If your definitely good enough you can counter though. It seems as if you have control of grenades, you have control of the game, which makes the game a little more interesting.

Halo ODST was the same old spartan fight except you die faster. They even required you to buy ODST to be able to play MLG which I thought was just a quick way for Bungie to get a quick buck. Halo Wars was an interesting game, it had the concept of spartans fighting aliens along with some Starcraft/Warcraft gameplay going on. It was fairly new and interesting but I wasn’t interested, they had limited units and not enough strategy. Simple way of putting it, it was too easy.

The next Halo game is said to be Halo Reach which gamers are looking forward to because of Project Natal. Project Natal as you all know is something like the Wii with motion sensor technology except its supposed to be alot better at capturing movements than the Wii. You can check out all of the features in an earlier post I made.

That’s all for Halo, stay tuned for more on Project Natal.

Halo 3: ODST Tour

I found a nice post while searching around about a Halo ODST tour. According to the website, you will get to see and play the firefight mode on the upcoming game Halo ODST which will be released in September. A new mode will be available on Halo ODST a new mode of co-op combat will be put into the game which is known as “firefight.” This mode will allow you to invite friends and play a 4 player co-op mode simultaneously.

This mode is said to be similar to the fight mode called “horde mode” on Gears of War. Bungie is now giving players the opportunity to go and see this new mode for themselves at locations around the US. Full information on which cities the firefight mode will be available is listed on
