Halo: Reach announcement coming Thursday

Last month, we were given a glimpse into Halo: Reach’s campaign revealing never before seen features, a major one being space battles.

According to CVG, Microsoft is set to release a “special” announcement this Thursday at an invite-only event in London regarding Halo: Reach.

Halo: Reach to have the Strongest Halo Enemies Ever

When you played co-op in previous Halo games, you would always face the same number of enemies who follow the same action pattern as if you were playing the campaign alone. According to a recent Kotaku story, that is no longer the case. Now when four buddies get together to play, not only do the number of aliens increase,  but the AI gets even more intelligent as well. Throw in skulls & the legendary difficulty, and you have the strongest enemies in a Halo game to date.

Consider me signed up. I only wish I had friends who had the skills to play with me since that sounds like it could make the campaign more fun. I guess in the worst case scenario I could just hook up four controllers and try and plow through alone. Ten bucks says that happens within the first week of the game coming out.

ESPN on Xbox 360

Among the multitude of features on Xbox Live are Twitter, Facebook, Last.fm and Netflix. Unsurprisingly, all of these features were announced at previous E3’s. Similarly, Microsoft unveiled another non-gaming feature at E3 this year. Now, Xbox Live Gold Members can watch 3500 ESPN events live and on-demand via Xbox Live.

Interestingly, the service is an exclusive partnership between Microsoft and ESPN. Gamers without an Xbox 360 are out of luck if they want to switch between playing as their favorite team and watching their team, which is a surprisingly quick transition. So far, NBA, MLB, college basketball, college football, soccer, and Sports Center have all been named-dropped as included content. NFL and NHL oddly, have not.

The ESPN service will feature support from Kinect. Using Kinect, one will be able to participate in actions such as voting on game outcomes. Unsurprisingly, stats and live tickers will be displayed. Though, in an interesting twist, ESPN and Microsoft have decided to give this feature for free to users who have a Gold status.

With everyone and their mother knowing who the main gaming demographic is, and with exclusivity rights, this partnership not only lends itself to being immensely successful, but quite surprising as well.

Gamestop gives us the kinection

You guys better thank God I wasn’t covering the Microsoft event as you would’ve been hearing many amazing puns like the title above. At the Microsoft event, you may have been blinded by the free Xbox’s (Looking at you, Ray!) but they didn’t announce a price for Kinect.

According to Gamestop.com, it will be (as expected and reported on last month) $149.99. I steep price for a thing I wasn’t sold on before the show and now know I will not buy one. The SKU’s go like this:

Video Interview with Kane and Lynch 2 Developers

“What do we perceive as real?”

That is the key question that the folks from Eidos and Io Interactive asked themselves when they sat down to make Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days. With that integral concept in mind, they set out to create a third-person shooter that was not only responsive and entertaining, but also engrossing and groundbreaking in the way it was “shot” and how it unfolded.

I had a chance to sit down a few weeks ago with Karsten Lund, Kane and Lynch 2’s Game Director, to talk to him about the plot of the game, the multiplayer, and what we could expect in general from Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days when we see it hit store shelves in August.
