The legagy of Halo video game franchise hangs high over the sense of anticipation for Destiny, the company's next video game. The success of Halo was bigger than anyone, including its owner Microsoft, ever dreamed of: not only did Halo become one of the handful of video games that attained mainstream attention, it remains just as popular ten years after the first game as it did a console generation ago.Add a comment (1)

For a good chunk of people, the big event happening on November 6 wasn't America deciding who would be chosen as the next President. Instead, a legion of gamers were awaiting the release of Halo 4, Microsoft's biggest release for the holiday 2012 window as well as what's expected to be the first in a new gaming trilogy.Add a comment (0)

One of the recent smash hits in video games has been Rocksteady's Arkham Asylum / Arkham City franchise starring the Batman. When Batman: Arkham City was released last fall, it quickly moved more than six million copies in a month and became one of the most critically lauded games of the year. No one figured that Rocksteady was through telling more tales of Batman's video game universe, but at the same time, no one was thinking of the next direction the superhero franchise would head.Add a comment (1)

Last year's reboot of the Mortal Kombat video game franchise was well-received by critics and consumers. It rejuvinated the franchise and gave much-needed credibility to Warner Bros. Interactive and NetherRealm Studios, the development team behind the game.
The Warner Bros. connection has yielded a new benefit for the NetherRealm team in the form of Injustice: Gods Among Us, a new game that was announced this morning. Unlike the Mortal Kombat universe, Injustice will use the heroes and villains from DC Comics and allow players to battle with them in "massive scale" battles.Add a comment (0)

First, the bad news: the Aliens: Colonial Marines video game being made by Gearbox Software and released by Sega won't come out until February 13, 2013. That's a helluva long time to wait if you've been amped up by what its makers have shown us so far. For those of us not in the know about why I and others are excited for Aliens: Colonial Marines, it's not just because of the game's pretty graphics. No, the real reason for my interest in this title stems from it being a direct sequel to James Cameron's Aliens movie, continuing the story of what happened in the aftermath of the destruction of the colony on LV-426.Add a comment (0)

Activision has confirmed that the next installment in their mega-successful FPS Call of Duty series will be a sequel to Black Ops. Call of Duty: Black Ops II will arrive on store shelves this fall on November 13.
The developer for Black Ops II is Treyarch, the same studio that build the first Black Ops (and which sold a record 25 million copies worldwide, making it the bestselling video game ever in the United States and Europe.) However, this time the setting will be in the future, a first for the franchise.Add a comment (2)

Microsoft has dated the release for Halo 4 and it will arrive November 6, 2012.
The Xbox creator also revealed a tiny sliver of new information about what we can expect to see delivered in Halo 4. Already we were given the news that Master Chief and his AI Cortana will return in the next Halo game, but now we know that the events we'll see happen in Halo 4 are set four years after the conclusion of Halo 3. At the end of the last Halo game, the Chief and Cortana were sent off into uncharted space. It was strongly hinted that they were going to visit the homeworld of the Progenetors, the alien race that built the mysterious ringed Halo worlds.Add a comment (0)

Telltale Games estimates that we're about six to eight weeks away from the release of a video game based on The Walking Dead. The game will arrive on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network; other consoles or a PC version haven't as yet been acknowledged by the developer.
There are also some details about the game that can be reported. Unlike the comic book and AMC TV series, the main character in The Walking Dead video game isn't Rick Grimes. Instead, it's a new character by the name of Lee Everett, a man who was convicted of a crime before the zombie outbreak happened. Now trying to stay alive, Lee is given a new chance to redeem his better nature by helping save others from flesh-eating ghouls.Add a comment (0)
