Map Packs, How Do You Feel About Them?

FWD.Channel 5 posed a question earlier today, are map packs really worth the money? Map packs are extensions that are sometimes released for popular games, that include new maps or territories for gamers to play. Although I have heard of single player extensions, map packs are usually for multi-player.

I don’t think there is any one rule that says map packs are worth it or not, but I think it goes on a case by case basis, like many things. One factor is the cost of the map pack, another is the popularity of the game, and yet another factor is the game itself.

Halo Combat Evolved: Anniversary Edition

If you wanted to get some more Halo action without having to wait till next year for Halo 4, hang tight, because a new Halo game is coming this Fall, called Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary. The new game is actually a remake of the original Halo, with updated HD graphics, new game tweaks and more multiplayer maps.

Although Microsoft seems to be milking the Halo franchise till the very last drop, this will definitely make many Halo fans happy and I am sure gamers will want to re-play the Combat Evolved campaign with the improved graphics.

Awesome New Xbox360 Gaming Headsets

I think it is safe to say that the Xbox360 is here to stay. After Microsoft proudly noted that 40% of Xbox360 use is for non-gaming purposes (such as using Hulu plus or Netflix), and the recent mention of Halo 4 due for the 2012 holidays, I think it’s safe to expect the next-generation Xbox to arrive sometime in 2013.

I might be wrong on this, but as you can see from Windows 8 leaks, Microsoft isn’t too good about keeping the clamp on its work, and I am sure we would have heard mention of the next-generation Xbox by now, if there were one.

Get Ready For Halo 4, Due Next Year

Well, what do you know? I was nearly certain that the Halo franchise had ended. Not only was Halo destined to be a trilogy, but its latest game, Halo Reach was a prequel to the trilogy. I remember thinking it was kind of funny how the prequel to the trilogy turned out, in fact to be the best game of the entire franchise.

Fortunately, for Halo fanatics around the world, they’ll be able to rejoice to the news of Halo 4’s release. Assuming your Xbox360 hasn’t had a Red Ring of Death yet, you’ll be able to get more shoot-em-up action and be able to embark on new heroic missions.

Light Up Your Computer For Under $15

Many of us are on our computers for extended periods of time. PC Gamers fall into this category. I sometimes find myself playing for hours in a row. Now, gamers around the world can make their home setup just a little bit cooler with Antec’s new Soundscience Halo 6 LED bias lighting kit. The company states that this type of backlighting which is also used on some models of HDTV, helps reduce eye strain, lessen “image contamination” due to glare, and increases image clarity by creating a “halo” of white backlight behind computers.
