Halo Wars Review

Halo wars has been developed by Ensemble Studios, who are also developers of the classic Age Of Empires games. Ensemble have a very high place in many gamers hearts and it’s unfortunate that Halo Wars is their last game due to the studio being shut down. With this being the first Halo game that’s not a first person shooter or a Halo game not being developed by Bungie, Ensemble have been put under a lot of pressure to create something special. Have they pulled it off?

A Tribute To Tomo!

tomo-tribute1

Just for a laugh myself and Mark96 thought it would be funny to pay tribute to long serving team member xTOMOx, by changing out avatars to match his. You can see the results of this in the image above.

Call Of Duty 5 Beta Gameplay Footage

The Call of Duty 5 Beta was released on Friday, player who were lucky enough to reviece a beta code can download the demo on the xbox live marketplace and get a sneak peek at Call of Duty 5’s multiplayer.

I was lucky enough to recieve a Beta code and have recorded a few videos for you guys! I managed to get some good quality footage of all of the maps supplied in the Beta (3) and you can see some of the new features such as the dogs and vehicles. I also recorded the main menu and show some of the new perks and weapons you can expect to see in the full game.

There are 3 videos all together, click the link below to view them all!

NHL 09 – EA Sports Hockey League [28/09/08]

There’s not really alot of an update this week. We’ve got plenty of stats to show but there’s no media this week. It’s pretty hard to get decent videos from an online game because of the replay system. The only time we can really get a decent video is if someone scores an OT goal, which hasn’t happened alot this week because we haven’t let any games get that far! We could of course pause the game and get a replay straight after a good goal, but the amount of time it takes to upload the video would definately piss the other team off, and we don’t want to be doing that!

Most of this weeks games have been played by just Rikoshay and Mark96, mainly because we’re online the most out of the team. But we’ve done really well this week, we only taken 4 loses out of 16 games which is outstanding!

As you can see from our player stats below, Mark is scoring alot of goals for the team which is excellent, you’ll notice he’s got 65 goals from 44 games. Congratulations dude, keep up the great work!

Unfortunately however Phill’s record has dropped alot since last week, you need to pick up the pace dude, -7 isn’t good enough!

Our game record is getting quite large now, so posting it here is going to take up alot of space on the front page, so if you want see our full game record just click over to ‘Stats‘ in the navigation bar at the top of the page. But our current overall record is now at an outstanding:

32-8-1

So that’s it for this week, sorry, no video of the week as previously mentioned, but hopefully by the next update we should have some great videos for you guys!

NHL 09 [Review]

EA’s latest installment in the NHL franchise has introduced some groundbreaking features, including the new ‘Be A Pro’ mode and the EA Sports Hockey League. But does the third ‘next generation’ installment really push things to the next level like EA have been claiming?

More after the jump!

NHL 09 – EA Sports Hockey League [19/09/08]

Yeeeeah do the Peter Griffin Bump!

I’m updating this a little early because there’s so much to get onto the site, I was frightened if I left it til Sunday the post would be too big.

It’s been an eventful week we’ve played plenty of games and really enjoyed it! However we unfortunately broke our streak almost straight after making the previous post. In fact we’ve had quite a few loses, all because of sloppy play and people not doing as they’re told. But when we concentrate, do what we’re told.. We are unstopable!, just like we’ve always been.

So, our current line-up now includes Zamboni77, i’m not going to write the list again, but we do have some player stats for you guys!

Mark96 [RW] 26 34 10 17 248

SYPhill [C] 8 1 7 3 122
Zamboni77

Key: GP = Games Played, G = Goals, A = Assists

As you can see, we have clearly got a fantastic goal scorer on our team, gabbing the majority of the goals Mark96 is definately proving his worth. We’ve all been doing our part, Monkey Large is a great team player, i’ve been getting an awful lot of hits and the majority of the assists, and SYPhil.. .. Is doing good.

We have now played 24 games as a team and we’re in division 3 as I write this. Our results follow:

Opponent Score
Result
[Data Lost] [Data Lost]
W
Norwegien Devils 2-1 W

Ironmen 3-2 W

Muschi 3-0 W

Villa Allstars 2-1 W

Fribourg Dragons 2-1 W

Villa Allstars 3-2 W

KaPa 1-0 W

Karlsruh Allstars 1-2 L

Sexy Party Army 0-1 L

Exeter Fury Free 3-2 W

Team Switzerland 3-1 W

KonsoliFIN 3-2 W

Suomi Ukot 5-2 W

HC Jatkoaika 1-0 W

HC Jatkoaika 2-5 L

Half Dozen Outla 0-1 L

Suomi Ukot 3-1 W

Prinessan Lilla 2-0 W

GamereactorSE 3-1 W

HC Jatkoaika 4-1 W

7 Sorters Apa 2-3 L [OT]

Not’ham Panthers 3-0 W

OVERALL: 19-4-1

We have still got a record to be jealous of, even though we have had 5 loses, we’re still climbing up the boards and rocking NHL 09. We’ve played a couple of people twice, one team, HC Jatkoaika we have played 3 times! with out last match up seeing us spank them 4-1, and thier goal was pissy and we stopped concentrating!

Video Of The Week:

Mark ‘The Bacon Saver’ Oates strikes again with this beautiful OT goal assisted by Rikoshay. Keep up the great work dude and keep putting that crumpet at the back of the net. How does he slap it like that? It’s a mystery.

Check back again next week (Or even before) for more information about our outstanding NHL 09 campaign!

UK Gets Gears Of War 2 Hardcore Pack!

Allot of us UK gamers felt a little bit cheated when it was announced that US Amazon customers would be getting thier own exclusive limited edition version of Gears 2 with a life sized Lancer!

Well now it’s been revealed that UK retailer Game Station will be getting thier own limited edition version of the game, but unlike the US customers, the UK gets a golden lancer! Sounds great, but this fucker has been priced at £129.99! The same RRP as the recently reducted Xbox Arcade!

The Gears of War 2 – Hardcore Pack includes:

Life Size gold Lancer Assault Rifle

  • 36” long
  • Weigh’s over 5 kilo’s
  • Chainsaw Sound Effect
  • Vibration Functionality

Gears of War 2 Limited Collectors Edition.

As most of you already know, when you purchase the limited edition you get the gold lancer to use online, so this is what it will most likely look like.

In my opinion this is way overpriced and looks really tacky when compared to the US lancer with the neat blood splatter. I’ll definately give this a miss, i’d much rather spend that sort of money on something i’ll enjoy like Guitar Hero World Tour! I did buy the Halo 3 legendary edition, but that was reasonably priced, it’s a stylish product and looks great next to my Elite. But what would you do with the lancer? You’d need to get some nails on the wall to mount it, and even then the gold makes it look crappy! However in it’s defence the vibration and sound effects might be cool, bit is it enough to warrant the £130 price tag? £60 more than the Halo 3 legendary? I don’t think so Tim!
