E3 Announcement of Halo 4

Ok I have to get this out! I am so excited for the upcoming release of Halo 4, and to my great joy I just found the E3 footage of the game that played at the convention. I was thoroughly impressed with what I saw. Not only does it seem like 343 industries is doing a brilliant job of adding on to Halo’s legendary story, but they are doing so in their own way without destroying the game’s reputation. Although there is still a lot about the game that will be impossible to determine until its official release, I am comforted to know that, so far, this new release is going according to Bungie’s original plan.

I did have one concern about the actual gameplay footage that I saw. It seemed very reminiscent of Halo 3’s first mission titled Sierra 117. Although this critique is only based on watching the short 5 minutes of gameplay that are available on YouTube, it will be interesting to see how the game turns out. Despite this, I have no doubts that I will be purchasing a copy of this game.

What do you guys think about this new installment in the Halo 4 franchise and do you support 343 Industries in their endeavor to continue the Halo legacy!




Top 5 Most Badass Video Game Characters

Following my new post framework, Thursday starts with a “T” so it’s a free post day

Number 5: Marcus Fenix

In the Gears of War games Marcus is a soldier that fights against the locust. Badass features include: being ripped beyond believe, guns with chainsaws on them, destroying entire populations of locust multiple times, and as Sam once said “These guys are way too buff! They have six packs on their asses!”

Number 4: Scorpion

Scorpion is from the Mortal Kombat series, and is probably one of the most recognizable characters. In the rivalry between Scorpion and Sub Zero, I side with Scorpion completely. Badass features include: the ability to conjure fire, his chain spear, his dual blades, and the fact that when he removes his mask a skull is revealed.

Number 3: Isaac Clarke

Isaac has the pleasure of getting caught in the midst of deep space adventures, government conspiracies, and of course space zombies. Well not generic zombies in any sense, they are referred to as necromorphs and are the product of human DNA being rearranged by a mysterious alien artifact known as the marker. Anyway, badass features include: an awesome advanced space suit, crashing through walls into and out of space multiple times, being able to save the human race while suffering from mental affects from the marker, and the ability to use a foam finger as a weapon.

Number 2: Ezio Auditore

Number 1: John 117 “Master Chief”

Master Chief is by far the most badass video game character ever created. He is the main character of the Halo series; he protects the human race from an alliance of aliens known as the Covenant. Frankly, if it wasn’t for Master Chief, humanity would be royally screwed. Badass features include: being the last living spartan super soldier, single handedly destroying ancient forerunner Halos, the Covenant refer to him as “The Demon”, and he repeatedly punched the prophet of regret in the neck until he died.

So thats my top 5 most badass video game character list! Also, let me know who you think I should or shouldn’t have included.
