Halo 3 Expansion Revealed – Prepare To Drop!

As some of you may know, Bungie took down their homepage again about 14 hours ago and replaced it with the countdown (again!) but this time it was able to finish and we were presented with this!

This looks like a Halo 3 expansion. I know this because this video is also available on the marketplace and in the description it says ‘Players get ready for the new Halo 3 campaign experience with this new teaser trailer. Prepare to drop’

Another thought, It would make sense if they included the six new multiplayer maps (that we saw in the achievements) with the expansion. Whatever we get i’m sure it’s going to cost around 2000+ points, but will be well worth it. After all it’s Bungie!

Thoughts? I think this is amazing and well worth waiting for that countdown to finish, but then again i’m a huge Halo-fag.

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!

MSXBW Live Event: Halo 3 – Results

The night could have gone allot better, definately very dissapointing, 16 people registered and only 7 players showed up and stuck it out.

Participating members (alongside staff XSPLINT3RX and Waynimus):

Rikoshay
LCDking
mark96
MiniMcKinky
ruari1
erdal6
TheMehWarrior2

There was supposed to be 16 players!

No results were taken down due to the small turn-out, but one prize was on offer and was awarded to someone at random. Mark96 won a promotional code for the Legendary Map Pack, enabling him to download the maps free of charge, saving him 800mp.

No real serious games were played, we mainly played Forge varaints and other custom games, including a few games of Rocket Race, when we have the numbers. The night ended at around 10pm

All in all it was a fairly entertaining night, we had some laughs, just a shame that people didn’t show up. I think the main reason for this was due to the lack of prizes on offer, it’s a shame people don’t want to play for fun anymore!

Congratulations to Mark, and let’s hope the next gaming night goes allot better.

Halo 3 Legendary Map Pack: Review

The Legendary Map Pack has just been released on the Xbox Live Marketplace for 800 Microsoft Points. The pack includes 3 new maps for use on Xbox Live. Blackout, Avalanche and Ghost Town. Also included is brand new Forge objects and a new option to change the lighting effects on the map!

The last set of maps released weren’t too flash, nothing special and most people waited until the content was available to download for free. So should you pay for this map pack? Is it worth the 800 Microsoft Points price tag? (roughly £7).

I was lucky enough to find a few people (12) who have downloaded the maps so I have played them enough to give a good opinion.

More after the jump!
