Here's some very flaccid news in the wake of E3 -- Destiny's Alpha is over, with a Beta next month. The game'll be a Sony exclusive in Japan. The new dude from Halo 5: Guardians has been named Agent Locke, and he'll be introduced in the Nightfall series. Capcom is essentially up for sale, kinda, sorta, and Nintendo's selling more Wii U's than you might've thought. Ubisoft apparently nerfed Watch Dogs' PC capabilities, and GTA V on PS4, PC, and Xbox One looks great and will have hammerhead sharks. Oh yeah and there's new Emoji. What? Emoji's sort of a video game.

Bunch of Oculus VR hiring news as of late. Here's more: art director Kenneth Scott, formerly of 343 Industries and id Software, is on board. His hire is notable, at least in my mind, as being part of the Oculus' first-party c...

A Halo game is headed to Steam next week, but it's Spartan Assault

How desperate does Microsoft think we are to play anything Halo on Steam? We'll see if the company's decision to bring Halo: Spartan Assault to the platform next week pays off, I suppose. This overhead dual-stick shooter will...

The real life version of the Halo sword kind of sucks

Master arms maker Man at Arms is back, this time taking on the Halo Elite energy sword. The concept looks cool in the game, but it kind of sucks in real life as it's not really practical. Look at how floppy it is! It will still cut a fool, you just got to wiggle it around a little to really get in deep. It'll look cool mounted on a wall or something at least.

Impressions: Halo: Spartan Assault (Xbox One)

Having all but ignored initial reviews for Halo: Spartan Assault when it first hit Windows 8 platforms last year, I was quite optimistic that I would thoroughly enjoy a top-down, twin-stick shooter set in Microsoft’s massively popular sci-fi setting. After all, Halo’s extended universe is generally of excellent quality and the company handling the franchise’s excursion into a new genre, Vanguard Games, proved they had the stuff to make an exhilarating run-and-gun shooter with Gatling Gears.

I should have read the reviews.
