Weekly Round-Up: Halo Returns
In a bit of exciting (and possibly frightening) news, we have the apparent launch of the remake of Halo: Combat Evolved this November. It’s exciting because according to Joystiq’s anonymous sources, the re-release will be more than just an HD update.
What is as frightening as a Flood rush, however, is that development may be spearheaded by Saber Interactive, the team behind Timeshift. Also, Halo: Combat Evolved HD will not utilize the Halo: Reach engine, and will have new art assets.
Other random tidbits include using current controller configurations for the game, 1080p HD and 3D television support, online multiplayer and online co-op. The original only has two-player splitscreen co-op.
If these secret sources are correct, then this new Halo will hit store shelves and most likely be snapped up voraciously by Xbox 360 owners on Nov. 15—the 10-year anniversary of the series.
Now then, on to this week’s news and reviews.
PC and PS3 owners: find out when you will get the first bit of DLC content for Fallout: New Vegas.
The fact that this game’s announcement is the best thing Cam has heard this year may make me question his video game judgment (I mean, this is the man who may have romantic feelings towards a blue hedgehog) but I can’t deny how awesome this fan-made video about Skyrim is.
Pre-order Killzone 3 for some DLC goodies for multiplayer.
The Dragon Age II demo will have a special award for those who complete it. It looks painful.
One of the best teams in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3.
Mindjack has all the potential to be awesome (mind hacking characters, governments being taking over by corporations, etc.) but our review expert advises each and every gamer stay away from this pile of poo.
If you didn’t already know, Dead Space 2 rocks. And it’s scary. And bloody. And it rocks. Did I mention that already?
Some may argue that the PS3 version of Mass Effect 2 is the best, but I don’t think so. Find out what Kyle thinks in his review of the epic BioWare RPG.
Do we need a Heavy Rain movie?
That’s it for this week, GT readers. We hope you enjoy our new editorial writer, and make sure to look forward to more new faces and content coming to the site.
