Tristans Twisted World: Halo 4 Majestic Map Pack First Impressions

Halo 4 Majestic Map Achievements

The maps are small and have a very Halo 2 and Halo 3 feel to it which is very good.

The first map I played was Landfall Infinity Slayer which Landfall felt like Longshore from Halo 3 mythic map pack it had a very straightforward approach to the map which made the map easy to find people but with different levels.

The second map was Monolith which had a very Halo 4 feel in terms of how it looked but had a new feel which I think its the best map in the entire pack I played some king of the hill the grav lifts had me and others jetpacking off them trying to get to hills it was a blast!!

The final map was Skyline which felts like a few Halo 2 maps since it was like a city. I played the new gametype Infinity Rumble on it which was quite fun and the map had about 4 different levels so it made it fun to drop on people and kill them.

The map is better than Crimson and is about a top 5 Halo map pack off all time gives everything you could ask for new modes, new maps, new fun.

Tristans Twisted World: Mass Effect 3 Reckoning First Impressions

My first impressions on this DLC are good even though all there is are weapons and characters. So far I have unlocked the Cabal Vanguard which is a fan wanted Female Turian. I also have the Geth Juggernaunt which is strong but but slow just like the Geth Prime bosses in the game.

So far its pleasant no weapons yet but once I get everything unlocked, I’ll be back writing about it. That may take a while, but you know good things come to those who wait.

PlayStation 4 Controller DualShock 4 Capable of Virtual Reality Gaming

With the built-in support of DualShock, dual analog sticks, pressure sensitive face buttons and arrow pad, four triggers, a touch bar in the center and built-in Move technology, the controller is now alive.

Picture walking a tight rope while being shot at in the latest shooter game and bringing your enemies to their death while surviving yourself. Drop the controller? You’re dead. This type of virtual reality gameplay that has been seen in the past with various add-on projects will all be built-in to each DualShock 4 controller.

If the capabilities being displayed with Media Molecule’s creative and untitled New IP are any indication, there will still be functions that a Move controller (or one in each hand) can do exclusively.

There are also two new additions to the controller seen as buttons on either side of the touch bar. One is the power, or “suspend” button for the PlayStation 4. You can instantly power down, or “suspend” your PlayStation 4 to hibernation with the exact moment you were gaming stored away in its memory. When you bring the PlayStation 4 back to life you will be right where you left off.

The controller also features a share button with built-in UStream scheduling, streaming, Facebook support, as well as native support for capturing screenshots and gameplay footage with the PlayStation 4’s own user interface.

Be on the lookout as the graphics, gameplay, and controllers change with the next generation hardware PlayStation 4 from Sony scheduled for release Winter 2013. Check out more information here.

Tristans Twisted World: Bioware annouces Final Mass Effect 3 Singleplayer DLC titled Citadel and annouces new multiplayer DLC Reckoning

The final Mass Effect 3 DLC has been announced called Citadel. The Citadel DLC launches on Xbox 360 worldwide on March 5 and PS3 and PC but PS3 in Europe is March 6 for 14.99 $ or 1200 MS points. The DLC pack is so huge its spilt into two separate packages the first you pay for and it unlocks the second for free of course. The story is When a sinister conspiracy targets Commander Shepard, you and your team must uncover the truth, through battles and intrigue that range from the glamour of the Citadel’s Wards to the top-secret Council Archives.  Uncover the truth and fight alongside your squad  as well as the cast from the original Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2, including Urdnot Wrex! So im assuming they brought everyone back for one final goodbye to the series. When the adventure (DLC)  is over, reconnect with your favorite characters from the Mass Effect Trilogy, try your luck at the Citadel’s Silver Coast Casino, blow off steam in the Armax Combat Arena, or explore and furnish Shepard’s own living quarters on the Citadel. With unique content and cinematics featuring your friends and romance interests in the Mass Effect trilogy, Mass Effect 3: Citadel offers one final chance to see the characters you have known for years and rekindle romances. Sounds pretty good since they have working on this since before Omega was even complete. There is also the Multiplayer DLC titled Reckoning which is free on February 27th worldwide on 360, PS3, and PC. New characters feature The Geth Juggernaut, Female Turian Raptor, Talon Mercenary, Alliance Infiltration Unit, and more take up arms to stop the Reaper threat.  Smash your enemies with the Biotic Hammer as you lay waste to the battlefield as the Krogan Warlord. There is also  7 new weapons for multiplayer, including the Geth Spitfire Assault Rifle, Venom Shotgun, Lancer Assault Rifle, and amplify your arsenal with new equipment and weapon mods featuring the Geth Scanner and Assault Rifle Ultralight Materials. Sounds pretty good even though  this is the last multiplayer DLC since there are hints of data still out there but we will have to see. I hope this DLC has secret’s hidden in it and gives tons of awesome stuff. Also some images of whats to come in both DLC.

 

 

looks Pretty cool id like for you guys to give some thoughts.

A Land In The Clouds

The game that is believed to be the game of the year by the anticipation and anxiety that brings forth of this came to be coming. BioShock infinite is to be released March 26, 2013; from BioShock 2 to infinite, here we go.

All in all, we have already went from a disastrous underwater city called Rapture to a city in the sky supported by blimps, also known as Columbia, will be the setting for Infinite’s plot. Columbia was built and launched in 1900 by the government. This was also the traveling world fair, but was soon was found out to be a battleship. The ship had killed Chinese civilians during the Boxer Rebellion. This new city was like a boogie man that came down and from place to place was putting its will against the people. However, a Civil Disorder is what had eventually happened in Columbia just like in Rapture.

We anxiously await the land in the clouds which awaits us inside BioShock Infinite for PC, Microsoft Xbox 360, and Sony PlayStation 3.

Halo 4 Rumor Roundup Part 2: New Details/Preview

If you missed the first Rumor Roundup from Tristan, check it out here.

As we all know Halo 4 is in the new Game Informer rumors and stuff is flying up everywhere so well talk about some real and some rumor in 343s coming up FPS and easily one of the most wanted games of the year Halo 4.

As we see in the picture above Master Chief’s new look is better than ever with his sleek new design which personally I like id like to hear your thoughts in the comments. Apparently as stated in my first Rumor post Chief will have more emotional tear if they do show it as it says in Game Informer I might see it being compared to something from Mass Effect 3.

Cortana and Chief will share there emotional bond more in this which as just friends or maybe even more its unclear at this point. Chief will also have more superhero like moments as he faces his destiny. Halo 4 takes place 4 years 3 months and 10 days after Halo 3.

The new HUD is supposed to give more of a 26th century fell to like your acutely using this tech and acutely one these super soldiers. There are gonna be a wide variety of weapons as you can see above the Battle Rifle is back.

Also old weapons such as the DMR and AR and Magnum and many more are coming back but tons of new weapons as well. The multiplayer will have custom load-outs not like Call of Duty’s custom class but more with Halos spin there will be tons of stuff. Stay tuned for more details in this area.

The games graphics are highly increased just from these pictures it looks like the best game I’ve ever seemed very awesome. The areas look very real and smooth hopefully the controls will bring some balance between the two.

There has been some interesting concept art such as this picture with what looks like to be Halo type tech. Maybe such as an all out assault on the tower?

This picture as recently become interesting which it looks like Halo with maybe a spartan in front of it. In the distance it looks like a forerunner building but we will see about this sooner than later.

 

Spartan Ops is a new tv series mode that has seasons which is believed to gain new content for free and not download just menu updates or as playlist updates more details be give later.

The main enemy hasn’t been revealed yet but the Covenant is back to some extent and unclear what role they will play. The flood has been ruled out by a post on the waypoint website but interesting enough it seems they main villain may be the Forerunners it seems more likely than the Precursors but is still unclear maybe both of them we will see maybe soon or maybe when the game releases for more mystery.

The Halo Wars Cast might make a return as if you took the time to beat that after the credits it says “Captain, Wake Up” which goes into Wake Up John for Halo 4 well have to wait and see.

 

So let me hear what you think about this so far in comments id love to hear your thoughts and for you 360 gamers something big is coming up for you on the site so stay tuned and see you starside!

Halo 4 comes out November 6th on Xbox 360

Starhawk Private Multiplayer Beta 1.0.2 + 1.0.3 First Impressions

The Starhawk Private Beta has begun. Invites started rolling out on Tuesday November the twenty-second. We were lucky enough to get a code before the masses arrived. The first thing you will get to do is spawn. Not a big deal right but wait, you don’t just spawn you get to drop from the outer atmosphere in a fiery pod. Select where on the part of the map that your team controls. This can also be used as a weapon by aiming for the enemy while getting ready to spawn and controlling your fall with a  target landing mark that moves with you as the pod gets closer to hitting ground.

In the beginning of the match after ‘podding’ down from space it’s a fast and furious race to get building. Identifying strategic choke-points in maps is essential to seeing every weapon and vehicle you will be needing. You will need to find out how many protection structures your flag will need as well so they can be built then used. This is the build and battle feature that has transformed this series into a strategically enhanced super fast action third person shooter.

Each build includes either a weapon storage location where your teammates can load up or houses a vehicle such as the Razorback – a futuristic version of a jeep that has a mounted 50 cal on the back and seats three. Don’t worry, the other passenger can also wield his rifle at the same time. Some of the other buildings house the jet pack dispensers, and the holy grail of weapons the Mech-Hawk.

The Mech-Hawk brings back the Warhawk flight style air battles with the twist of being able to transform back into an unmatched ground force in the blink of an eye taking all of the weapons from the aircraft with it and adding the power to just stomp people out as they run away in fear. This new hybrid vehicle is the ultimate weapon.

The maps we have seen so far are futuristic to say the least with everything from acid spewing oceans to outer space platforms hovering far above the planets sporting awesome visual details from every possible angle. After logging quite a few hours I would find it hard to believe anyone if they said they were not enjoying it.

In all other games you race out to gain position looking for the perfect spot to set up and get ready for the war. In this game you make your spot wherever you want including directly in the enemies camp. But don’t expect to be there long because they can destroy it just as fast as you can build it. Put up a sniper tower in any location you want climb up to the perch and your weapon and ammo are sitting there waiting for you.

Not only can you drop down and nail the enemy with your spawn pod but you can also decimate the enemy with any one of your buildings if your timing is right. Taking bases requires a beacon to be placed so that you and your team may spawn there and begin to build your fortress the whole time while pushing forward toward the enemy forces.

In this early beta only thirty-two structures are allowed for the eight player team. Not to worry, the structures also come with the ability to reclaim them in order to better enhance your strategy or to just build something you’re needing more than what’s already there. For instance, you have built a fortress of walls around your flag or in your base blocking all entrances and you need something for the forward bases. No problem, simply reclaim the stuff you’re not using and communicate with the team letting them know what you need and where you need it placed.

So far I have to say it has been a long time for many of us Warhawk veterans waiting in anticipation for this release, even when mum was the word for so long until the secret PlayStation 3 exclusive became a reality. The hardcore Warhawk fans knew that something was in the works all along. Dylan Jobe and his team over at Light Box Interactive have not disappointed with their latest installment and I have to say they have exceeded my expectations. Having logged over three thousand hours in their previous game Warhawk, I do not say that lightly.

The best part is there’s even more coming! I’m talking more vehicles, more maps, more modes, even the addition of a story mode will be in the mix before it’s all said and done. This is just the beginning of what players are going to get when they purchase Starhawk. Not to mention the unbelievable amount of replay value this title will have. I’m expecting the same, if not more than Warhawk which is still enjoyed online daily after its release in 2007.

Tristan’s Twisted World: Assassins Creed Revelations Impressions

Yes, Assassin’s Creed is back for the third straight year, but now you get to play as Ezio from the past two titles and the original assassin Altair. In this series that has barely revealed anything, gamers keep coming back for more. Players like me keep coming back to play Assassin’s Creed for story and the new multiplayer that was introduced in Brotherhood.

Now in Revelations we face uncertainty as the cliffhanger ending of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and still the ending of the first Assassin’s Creed are unanswered. The title of this game says it all and so does the headliner “All will be revealed”. Hopefully at the very least it will be a lot more than we know.

The multiplayer is a lot bigger and better in Revelations. Now don’t get me wrong – it was good in Brotherhood definitely one of my favorite new multiplayer games of 2010 but the servers have issues including lack of characters. I also felt like the progression system was like a downgraded COD point system. In Revelations it’s improved servers you are playing on and the multiplayer plays a more important role to the story. You can hunt down targets to kill and unlock for the multiplayer. Most of them have a story behind them in one way or another as well.

The new gameplay engine makes the Creed better and makes Ezio, Altair, and maybe we will see a little Desmond action. You can jump over people toss smoke bombs and so much more. It’s something I’ve wanted to see since Assassins Creed 2 which is still my favorite in the series, but maybe not for long as Revelations has it all.

Assassins Creed Revelations is a must buy for 2011. I prefer this mainly for Playstation gamers but Xbox gamers will enjoy this if they like multiplayer so go out and get it, I know I am – Signature edition here we come.

Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary Preview

I present to you my preview of the remake to the game that jump started the first person shooter console multiplayer scene to a new level that it’s still at today (in classic, HD, and 3D). I am going to give my impressions, predictions, and back up how I got to these conclusions. The campaign was one of the best in the franchise, and I believe one of the best of all time (check my stats). I enjoyed it back in the day, but now there are a lot of new features, such as terminals, that will give more back story and previews of Halo 4.

There also is a scanner with which you can scan dead or alive enemies and learn about them. You can even scan allies and do the same. All of the guns are improved with sounds and the improved game engine makes it easier to fire. It is upgraded with the Halo Reach multiplayer and you don’t need Reach to play the Combat Evolved maps because they’re on the disc already.

The multiplayer will have six maps for competitive multiplayer and one firefight map, the names of which are: Damnation, Beaver Creek, Prisoner, Timberland, Headlong, Hang ‘Em High and the Firefight map, Installation 04 or Battle Canyon, Breakneck, High Noon, Penance, Ridgeline, Solitary, and Installation 04. The names are all over the place but we will see for sure tomorrow. These are great maps, better than any Reach map. I was impressed with these.

The firefight will have some new features, such as having ODST’s help you in combat and of course the pre-order skull Grunt Funereal will pack a plasma punch on your foes. The Halo Combat Evolved pistol will be in the Firefight and Multiplayer as well and will cause a lot of mayhem, but great fun as it will bring the fun Halo original felt back to it.

343 and Microsoft hope this game will bring a lot of great and mystic Halo feel back to it. Fans have been waiting for this game for a reason, so I’m telling you if you have an Xbox 360 this is a must-try (at least). It’s only 40 dollars at launch for all the great features it has, so spartans gear up for Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary on November 15th and if you just want the multiplayer maps to plug in to Reach you can download them for 15 dollars on the Xbox Live Marketplace, see you star-side!
