I’m really liking Halo 4′s Spartan Ops. So far it is very cool, I wonder how long they will keep it going. There is a lot of interesting development with the original Spartan program and Dr Halsey who created the entire thing. I know it is just fiction but the world they build is very cool. I guess you can say I love the worlds as much as I do the stories that you can tell within them.
I thought that everyone did a great job with making the Halo universe come to life. Turning a game into reality is no easy feat as the litany of video game movie corpses can attest to. Although Forward Unto Dawn isn’t a movie it makes the universe come alive. There are not a lot of big science fiction franchises these days and would be glad if Halo in some form found its way into Hollywood, and this feels like the first step. I don’t play the games but I love the lore of the world. I look forward to the next chapter in Master Chief’s journey. Let’s get on deck for Tuesday, time to gear up.
So Assassin’s Creed 3 is right around the corner and here is a look by XboxViewTV at GamerCom about it all. Damn that looks really pretty but one thing I hate is exclusive DLC it drives me mad because you can feel like you are being denied the opportunity to get content based on the platform which is the exact opposite of consumer friendly.
You can see all the work Ubisoft has put into the franchise and the graphics for Assassin’s Creed 3. I wonder what happens to the series after they finish the story. Desmond has such an epic story to save the world from the end of days I wonder how they will follow it up given the yearly sequels we have gotten of the franchise especially since the next step will lean into the next generation of consoles.
Gaming is entering a rocky period with the rise of mobile and tablets and the ever-increasing budgets needed to produce graphical spectacles like Assassin’s Creed. What will happen during this next phase is going to be fascinating to watch, I hope it leads to a maturing of the market and its perceptions by the audience. We will see, now enjoy a naval battle and get ready for the end of days.
With the epic flop of the Battleship movie (in face of the Avengers, they had to know that wouldn’t end well) and the traditionally horrible game (video or otherwise) movies here is an awesome parody trailer with what better game than Tetris.
