Rediscovering my love of “Halo”

Saturday, March 6th, 2010 by Flatliner

A long time ago, I owned a heavy black game system with green touches known as the Xbox. And on this system, I had one of the best experiences in my gaming life when I played through the original “Halo: Combat Evolved”. At the time, I didn’t realize that the first person shooter genre had been relatively unsuccessful on home consoles (Goldeneye: 007 on the N64 notwithstanding), nor did I foresee that this game would revolutionize the way that the genre was even thought about in the living room. I just fell in love with the main character, forever known as “Master Chief” and his sidekick “Cortana”, and I was engrossed in the epic nature of their story.


GTA: San Andreas Coming to XBOX Originals

Wednesday, October 15th, 2008 by Zach Potts

If you are still one of those people that have not played Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, you might want to pick the game up this coming Monday as Microsoft is releasing San Andreas to the growing list of XBOX Originals over at the XBOX Live Marketplace. Just like the other XBOX Originals, the game will cost 1200 Microsoft Points which is equivalent for $15. Kinda pricey but, if you can’t find it in stores, get it online!

Five years ago, Carl Johnson escaped from the pressures of life in Los Santos, San Andreas, a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs, and corruption. Now he’s back in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas™.

Remember folks, GTA: San Andreas is rated M for Mature…
