We see Master Chief as a child being taken from his family to be put into the Spartan Program. The Promethians. Just awesome!
Also, we have Part 3 of Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn. And here it is!
I can’t wait to see live action Master Chief in action in the next episode! And how badass was that Elite!!
That’s all I got for now! Later!
Sup guys? Got a little bit of news for you this week. So lets get to it!
Well, first of all, last week I forgot to post a very cool Making of Halo 4 video that was released on the Halo Waypoint app on the XBox Live Marketplace. So here it is!
Oh man! Did anyone else get goosebumps watching that? It’s so cool seeing the people behind the voices like Jenn Taylor and Steve Downes. And seeing the motion capture actors for the cinematics. I so cannot wait for Halo 4!
Well, in other news. Another game I’m very much looking forward is Assassin’s Creed 3! Well, with a preorder from Gamestop, you will get for free a new single player mission called, “The Lost Mayan Ruins” in which Conner explores Mexico in search of Captain Kidd’s prized weapon, The Saw Toothed Sword. And heres a little teaser trailer for it.
Finally, Borderlands 2 comes out today! If you were a fan of the first one, go out and get the sequel.
Well, that does it for this week. See ya next time!
Sup guys? This past Sunday was the WWE’s “Party of the Summer” Pay Per View event, Summerslam. Now, the WWE has a pay per view event every month, but there have always been 3 pay per views that are benchmarks for the professional wrestling company. Those three are The Royal Rumble, Summerslam, and of course, Wrestlemania. Now, for these events, the WWE basically take over the venue where the event is being held and have a weekend long convention they call WWE Fan Axxes. During this event, there are meet a greets with superstars, chances to commentate on matches with current and legendary WWE commentators, and also some press events. Well, this past weekend there was a press event held to reveal the roster for this years video game, WWE 13. And here it is!
Man, I’m really digging this roster. I was lucky enough to grow up watching wrestling during the 90s. And for anyone that watched during that time knows about the Monday Night Wars with WCW and more importantly, that was the beginning of the Attitude Era. I’ve gotta say, it’s gonna be really cool getting to play as the superstars of the Attitude Era and to see current superstars as they looked during that time. I. E. Triple H as he currently is, Triple H during the original DX days, and Triple H when he went by Hunter Hearst Helmsley. And also knowing that the “Three Faces of Foley” will all be playable. For those who were, and still are a fan of Mick Foley will appreciate that. Think about it, you could have a 6 man tag match between Hunter Hearst Helmsley, DX Triple H, and current Triple H against Mankind, Dude Love, and Cactus Jack. How cool would that be? And by the looks of it, you will be able to recreate famous moments from matches that took place during the Attitude Era. As you could see from the trailer, you will be reliving the moment when The Undertaker threw Mankind off of the top of the Hell in a Cell into the announcer’s table below. If you were a fan of wrestling, you will never get that moment out of you head for as long as you live.
I personally can’t wait for WWE 13. WWE 12 was a great title and THQ implemented a lot of new gameplay mechanics to make the game feel as close to real life as possible and it looks like they are improving on those mechanics.
WWE 13 comes out October 30, 2012 for Wii, PS3, and XBox 360.

Here are some of my favorite game trailers and previews from E3 2012!

Assassin’s Creed 3 is going to be amazing! Here’s some gameplay that was shown off at E3.
The gameplay looks so good! Love the free flow fighting system now!
Star Wars 1313:
Yeah, that’s game engine, not a cinematic. There’s no way this game is coming out and the current generation of consoles. But who knows?
Here’s one more for Star Wars 1313
And last, but certainly not least, Halo 4!
Here’s what kicked off Microsoft’s E3 press conference, a live action Halo 4 trailer that goes into a campaign game demo!!

To prepare gamers for the release of Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition, Rocksteady has released a behind the scenes video featuring some of the more notable voice actors in the game. Namely Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill, and Stana Katic.
Check it out here!
I’ve gotta say, it’s pretty cool seeing Kevin and Mark at work. They’ve been playing Batman and the Joker for over twenty years now. They know the characters, and in some ways(especially with Mark Hamill) they ARE Batman and the Joker. Like it was said in the video, when you read Batman comics, you hear Kevin’s voice as Batman and Mark’s voice as the Joker.
And I’ve gotta say, when I found out that Stana Katic was going to play Talia al Ghul, I was a little surprised, but excited at the same time. Then come to find out, she’s a fan of the Batman comics and Talia in particular and that she knows the character. I like Stana Katic. For those who don’t know who she is, she stars alongside the always awesome Nathan Fillion in the ABC mystery drama TV series Castle. I’m not usually a fan of the cop drama shows on TV but I’ll watch and enjoy anything with Nathan Fillion, he DID do voice work and was a main character in Halo games.
To say the least, it was very cool to get an inside look at what goes on behind the scenes of my favorite game of 2011 and see the people behind the characters.
Remember, Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition comes out this Tuesday, May 29th. This will include the new DLC campaign “Harley Quinn’s Revenge,” along with the Catwoman, Robin, and Nightwing packs, the classic skins pack and the challenge map packs, and will include other special features and will also include a copy of the animated movie, “Batman: Year One.” For the people like me who have already owned the retail game for some time, we can purchase the Harley Quinn DLC from the XBL Marketplace or thru the Playstation Network for PS3 gamers which will also be available for purchase on May 29th.
That’s right! We have a release date for Halo 4!! But instead of me telling you, how about we we let our good friends from Roosterteeth share the good news, and give you a good look at the Spartan IV’s that you’ll play as in the Halo 4 multiplayer universe!
