Friday update 13/6/14

E3 has been and gone, and one of the only new things that I was interested in was the Master Chief Collection. The other things being Halo 5 (which there were not many details of, because it is so far away from release), and the Dark Souls 2 DLC (which …

Finally found it

I feel so good right now, I finally found an old music video that I was almost convinced didn’t actually exist. It was only that David remembered it as well that I knew it wasn’t a figment of my imagination. I remembered it was on MTV, or The Box, and …

Xbox One

Upon completion of that last post, I have realised that I’ve not addressed the Xbox One on here yet. I can kinda see where they are coming from with the extra functions and all, but I think they have misunderstood it. Nowadays people can get games on devices that can …

Halo 4: War Games

War Games – the new name for multiplayer Red vs Blue. This was always going to be the main area of the game for me, shooting guys is so much better than shooting AIs. It has a lot to live up to – the Halo series is the only First …

To get me in the mood, I’m listening to the original Halo soundtrack. That’s one of the things that set Halo apart for me. The ghostly choir on the title screen. The epic, sweeping orchestra as you explore an unique world. The “we’re gonna go fuck shit up” Halo driving …

Typing and waffling

Looks like Wednesday is becoming my new update day. Due to the days I work, Monday has been designated “rest day” – coming off four days of work is quite tiring. I feel more perky and talkative on a Wednesday though, I’m more likely to want to do things like …

E3 2011

Well, that was a bit of a let down. The only things that stood out for me were one brand new (and kinda unexpected) Halo game, and one kinda expected (and brand new) Halo game. I’ll start with the kinda expected one, Halo Anniversary. It looks utterly beautiful in stills, …
