Microsoft is looking to expand the “Halo” universe, yet again. An online job posting suggests that the company is aiming to create a “Halo” community that not only spans consoles, but possibly reaches out to the web and mobile worlds as well. The listing, which calls for a software development engineer says several interesting things about creating a new “Halo” community. Read the rest of this entry »

There were a number of reasons that I didn’t expect “Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts” to be pretty much the only Xbox 360 game I’ve played in the last month or so. Based on previews of the game, and the fact that my Xbox red-ringed the day I received the game, I had little to no intentions of playing the game outside of the average time I planned on spending with the game to write this review. Boy, was I wrong. “Banjo” just kept sucking me back in. Sure, it may have had something to do with my achievement addiction that I though I had under control (wrong about that too), but it’s one of those games that consumes you, and keeps you playing just a little bit longer… and then it’s 3 A.M. “Banjo” caught me off-guard, and kept me playing on, and on, and on. The last time that this exact same thing happened was with “Viva Pinata.” Damn you Rare.

My Dearest GameStop,
We have made a great couple for many years now. Over the course of which you have done so many great things for me, but, time has passed, and people change – I have changed. Although I say this with a very heavy heart, I think it is time that we both go our separate ways. I know it sounds cliche, but it’s not you, it’s me. I’m just looking for something different in a retail games store, and I’ve found it, with someone else. Read the rest of this entry »

Today is the first day that you can get an XBOX360 for cheap! The cheapest bundle (Arcade with no Hard Drive) now costs $199.99 a full $50 less than a Wii (If you can find one).
Microsoft does this in anticipation of attempting to win this year’s Holiday season. The other models have also dropped their prices. The XBOX360 Pro model (60 gig Haard Drive) will be $299 and the sexy Black 120 gig XBOX360 Elite is now $399.
The Elite is now the same price as the 80 gig PS3 competing directly at that price point. Although it must be noted that the PS3 includes a Blu-Ray movie player as standard, while the XBOX doesn’t have an HD movie player option.
This is probably the first of many price cut announcements as we gear up for the Holiday season.
Stay tuned… DaveDaGamer
