Halo: Reach review

In Videogames on October 7, 2010 at 4:45 PM

Halo: Reach – Xbox 360

Before this review begins, there are a few things you should know to put this into perspective.  I do not play Halo games.  I have never owned one.  I never planned on owning one.  In fact, I don’t particularly enjoy first-person-shooters on home consoles, despite it being one of my favorite genres on PC.  I’ve played Halo and Halo 2, both on Xbox and PC, and neither particularly impressed me.  I don’t have an Xbox Live Gold account, and therefore do not competitively play Halo online, though I have on many occasions played local multiplayer.

Halo: Reach grabbed me somehow.  As a fan of triumphant last stands and full-scale military epics, Reach seemed like the perfect setting to tell such a story.  From my basic understanding of the series and its backstory, Reach could offer an enormous scale invasion in the outer reaches of space on the same measure Star Wars brought to life on the big screen.  But after completing Reach’s solo campaign, I was left with nothing but a yearning for more.  Halo: Reach offers the same typical action of every previous Halo title.  Endless close quarters battles, vehicle interludes, rapidly updating objectives and a hackneyed, confusing story all plague Reach’s campaign.  Medal of Honor: Allied Assault achieved a more convincing sense of magnitude and urgency than Reach.

Why PlayStation Move and Kinect will fail

In Videogames on June 18, 2010 at 8:55 AM

The E3 press conferences have wrapped up nicely and both Sony and Microsoft have shown a dedication to motion control gaming with the PlayStation Move and Kinect respectively.  It seemed not too long ago when Sony ruled the gaming world and pundits considered Nintendo dead in the water.  Just four years after Nintendo’s Wii release, the tides have certainly shifted.  As the big dogs play catch up with the company that defined the words “entertainment system,” Sony and Microsoft showed that neither company fully comprehends what has set Nintendo apart this generation.

The Ubisoft press conference begins right now.  Remember to refresh for live updates.

5:01 PM – The show opens with a very dramatic demo for a game for Kinect that looks similar to Rez.  This is a long demo showcasing a bunch of the gameplay.  The game looks gorgeous and the soundtrack is great.  Looks like five minutes of uninterrupted gameplay so far.  The feed just died.  It comes back and the game is revealed as Child of Eden.
