The End Of The Xbox Halo Franchise As We Know It

February 18, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

Halo: Reach is the forthcoming (and final) chapter from current developer studio Bungie, bringing to an end their reign over the Xbox Halo franchise. Set in 2552 on the human planet Reach, and players once more adopt the Spartan colours as Noble 6 and, along with Noble Squad, the gamer will have to defend their planet from the terror that is the Covenant. However, Halo: Reach is a prequel to Bungie's first award winning "Halo: Combat Evolved" title.

Originally designed to be an improved version of the Xbox Halo franchise entry Halo 3, the notion was dropped, Bungie stating they would redesign and improve the quality of the Halo 3 designs. Harking back to the Halo: Combat Evolved concept ideas, this effectively means the new weapon, armour and covenant designs in Halo: Reach will deviate greatly from prior entries but uphold the ethos of the Xbox Halo franchise.

Hinting that Bungie will not cap the Xbox Halo franchise without a bang, the producers are looking to dramatically increase the graphical quality of all gaming areas, even including the weaponry. This clearly required Bungie to create a fresh new engine in Halo: Reach, with the AI augmented and nudged to provide better support for the player as they battle the Covenant.

So after all these promises of fusing greatly refined graphics and improved AI and designs, will Bungie leave the Xbox Halo franchise with a bang and cement their reputation for producing the best FPS for the Xbox 360? The only way to find out is to grab a copy when it is released later this year!

Following on from the magnificent Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is set to push the boundaries of what the hardware in the PS3 can do. Whereas in Uncharted: Drake's Fortune saw the treasure hunter Nathan Drake searching for El Dorado with the help of Sir Frances Drake’s diary, Uncharted 2 sees players start on the search for Marco Polo’s lost fleet, and then escalates into Drake trying to uncover Polo’s secret, Shambhala the legendary Tibetan city also known as, Shangri-La, which is home to the fabled Cintamani Stone, a ruby which was reputed to have the power to grant wishes. This allows the game to have a much varied range of settings for Drake to explore, rather than the single setting of the South American Jungle in the first outing.

As usual with sequels, Naughty Dog are set to address concerns that were highlighted in the first game and to amend them in Uncharted 2, with the major complaint being enemies with abundant health. Naughty Dog say that damage will be much more realistic and enemies with more health will be identifiable and boss encounters will be more difficult.

One of the most surprising statements from Naughty Dog concerning the first Uncharted game was that they were only using 30% of the power the PS3 has to offer, and yet the first Uncharted game was and still is still the best looking game on the PS3. Naughty Dog claim they have increased from the amount of processing power from 30% to 40-45% so far in Uncharted 2 and hope to get it to around 50% when the game is completed. So we expect an absolute eye watering feast as well as a cinematic experience when this hits selves later this year.

Video games- a byte sized history PART ONE

January 13, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

If you have recovered from the glorious pun in the title, then we shall begin. Video gaming has been around long enough now to have become firmly ingrained in the public consciousness as a legitimate entertainment industry that commands a large share of the overall global media output and intake. From the early days of the 2600 right up to the newest versions of the Xbox and Playstation, there has been a ridiculous amount of fun to be had. Not everything worked out, and not everything was quite as awesome as people would have you believe, but video games certainly have their history.

The Video Game industry began in the early 1970s and after almost collapsing in the mid-1980s, it is now one of the most profitable entertainment industries in the world.

The First Generation Home Video Games

Many people have fond memories of playing the legendary Pong, the very first arcade game to achieve any kind of notable success. Despite it’s simplicity, it was hugely addictive and became a genuine classic very quickly.

The late 1970s and early 1980s saw the advent of many arcade game machines (man, remember those tabletop video games? Those were AWESOME). Some of these proved to be hugely addictive. Popular games of this era included Pac-Man and its many variations, Space Invaders, Battle Zone, Defender, and Donkey Kong. Personally I was very fond of Moon Cresta.

Many gamers longed to play these games in their homes, and eventually, many of the games were in fact available to play on at least one home video console and often more than one. In the original home video game market, games were hard wired into the console. All of this would change with the advent of second generation consoles, and the scene was to explode.

Second Generation

The second generation home video game consoles allowed for cartridges that could be swapped in and out of the console. The defining console of this period was the Atari 2600, which often shipped with the popular Space Invaders game.

The main controller for the Atari 2600 was the joystick, which often wore out and had to be replaced or refurbished. The console also included paddles which were used in racing games and in some sporting games. Greats for the 2600 included Pitfall and Berserk!

This era also saw the rise of the handheld video game market. Many of these centered around sports, such as basketball and football.

In addition to the Atari 2600, some gamers also purchased the Mattel Intellivision or the ColecoVision. The home video gaming market nearly died out during this era, and only the Atari 2600 remained. Gamers would be rewarded in just a few years with the advent of third generations machines.

Third Generation

The third generation in video gaming was inaugurated in the mid-1980s by the classic Nintendo NES console. It normally shipped with the original Super Mario Bros game, which remains a favorite to this day and has spawned countless other games, TV shows and even a movie. Other titles included Duck Hunt, the Legend of Zelda and many variations of Super Mario games.

The Nintendo NES was revolutionary in that it replaced multiple controllers with one game controller that easily fit within the two hands of the gamer. Also available was a pistol that was used with Duck Hunt and other titles.

The ease of play with the NES and the enjoyable games allowed it to easily dominate the video gaming market for several years.

The Sega Master system was the alternative to the NES, offering the same 8 bit technology with a sleeker design and a more detailed game design. Many of the Master System’s most popular games were action based, such as Shinobi, Altered Beast and the like.

Home video game consoles would continue to evolve over the late 1980s and beyond. Make sure you check out PART TWO of our Byte-sized history of video games soon!

Wii – The Best of The Ports

November 21, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

wii Wii   The Best of The PortsThe Wii console really is the most fun you can have waving your hands around in your living room. Like swatting at invisible mosquitos with a mobile phone, it can look very odd indeed if you're spotted through a window. It does kick some serious rump though. The range of Wii games is always expanding, and thanks to the joys of games being ported over from other consoles, it's getting easier to find your favourites. Now, games are often ported from one console to another for varying reasons. In the case of the Wii, the main reason is usually that the game is popular, and people wish to play it again using Wii controls. It has been found that the Wii can bring new life to a popular yet old game, not to mention beefing up yoru arms with all that waggling. Here are the current three best Wii ports:

#3:Persia: Rival Swords

51vQfANj9oL. SL160  Wii   The Best of The Ports

Prince of Persia: Rival Swords is a port of the third game in the Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Trilogy, entitled Prince of Persia: Two Thrones. It was one of the first Wii ports to effectively implement the Wii motion controls.

Two Thrones chronicles the newest adventure of "Prince", the main character. Besides being able to manipulate time, run up and across walls, kill using stealth, and pull off crazy combat combos, the main hook in the gameplay is being able to turn into Prince's alter ego, Dark Prince, at certain intervals.

Dark Prince is a more powerful, agile version of Prince. The downside is that there is a sand meter constantly going while you're Dark Prince, and in order to keep it full and avoid dying, you have to keep on the move, killing monsters and absorbing their sand.

The Wii version is identical in terms of content, except for the controls. While the initial version would have you simply press the attack button to come up behind an enemy and perform a stealth kill, in the Wii version you tilt downward with the Nunchuk, as an exapmle. The new controls provided a fresh, more exciting way to play the game.

#2: Okami

51mdwSLef7L. SL160  Wii   The Best of The Ports

Okami is an action-adventure originally released in 2006, starring the sun goddess Amataresu, who journeys in the form of a white wolf. The game boasts a long, japanese myth-driven story, plenty of characters and side-quests, and a whole lot of style.

The Wii version incorperated motion controls in the usual areas, like combat, but also in the area of the main character's "Celestial Brush". Gotta love that term. 'Lovely Celestial Brush, darling. dancy a drink?'

The Celestial Brush is a magical paintbrush the sun goddess uses to manipulate the world around her. Using the Wii remote, players could now wield the brush themselves, making the proper motions to solve certain puzzles and launch attacks. Okami has become just as much(if not more so) an intriguing and beautiful game as it was two years ago.

#1: Resident Evil 4

51eQNwoDI9L. SL160  Wii   The Best of The Ports

Resident Evil 4 is a modern classic. It steered the entire series into a totally new and unfamilar direction. And yet, it worked. I'd prefer it if it had Milla Jovovich in it like the movies, but we can't all have what we want can we?
The game's story involves a european religious cult that has kidnapped the United States President's daughter. But what really counts in this kind of game is the gameplay, and the Wii did for it what no other console could.

The shooting action that RE4 is all about has been perfected, with extremely accurate pointer control and motion controls, and has been heralded as the best way to play Resident Evil.

One of the reasons the game is so intense is that in RE4, you can't shoot while moving. Instead, you must stand still and position yourself, hold down a button to raise your gun, and fire once your enemy is in your sights. With the Wii Remote, the shooting is dramatically more accurate, and the time it takes to aim your weapon much shorter. The result is a superior, appealing control scheme.

Here's hoping the Wii gaming console continues down this road of bring older games to its arena. If nothing else, it'll help some of us work off a few pounds. Having old games turn up in this new way of playing is a greatway of rediscovering some modern classics in a whole new light.
