With a swipe of a button, Xbox users will soon be able to finish a film on their Xbox 360, that they were previous watching on their tablet, much like Apple’s Airplay, thanks to a new feature that was just unveiled at Microsoft’s E3 press conference. (more…)
A trailer was shown for Gears of War: Judgment during the Microsoft’s E3 presser. Unlike the previous Gears games, where the story followed Marcus, this one looks to have Baird and Cole as the focal point.
Not much is known about the title, but we do have some juicy tidbits.
The story, which won’t be as deep as the first three, will be set twelve years before the original game, which obviously makes it a prequel.
Because Epic isn’t focusing on rich storytelling, they’re putting their minds to work and creating a deep, rich action game. I hope that translate to the best multiplayer experience yet, which is why most still play Gears of War in the first place.
Sam Fisher is back, and this time he is looking for a terrorist leader on the Iran and Iraq boarder.
Splinter Cell Blacklist will feature his famous stealth action moves, but he does seem a tad quicker on his feet when navigates from hiding spot to hiding spot. I guess you could say he’s more like Batman now, instead of Solid Snake.
Not only is he quicker, but the game also looks to sport more action oriented gameplay to complement the stealth, which might turnoff some fans of the franchise.
To start of their E3 presser, Microsoft decided to demo off what surely will be their biggest game they will publish all year, Halo 4.
A few years ago it was announced that Bungie Studios, the creators of the Halo franchise, would separate themselves from Microsoft. However, Microsoft still owns the rights to the Halo series, so instead of just stopping development on the popular franchise, the company handed over the keys to 343 Industries, a studio newly established by Microsoft to just continue work on the Halo universe.
343 certainly looks to be on top of things, and the development of the game does NOT look hindered in anyway because of the studio switch. In fact, from a technical standpoint, it looks superior when compared to any of the Halo titles Bungie produced.
