X10: A sandbox shooter and whole lot more: Halo: Reach photo
X10: A sandbox shooter and whole lot more: Halo: Reach
by Ben Perlee

I've never been a fan of Halo because I'm too cool for school, and popular games are hella lame, and no one cool likes what everyone likes. I also wear thick rimmed glasses and listen to pretentious music, so that makes me a better person than you. So there.

Yet -- this is a big “yet” -- after what I've been shown of Halo: Reach, I think I might break down my pretensions and accept what is here: Halo: Reach looks really, really cool.

While I strongly suspect that fans of the Halo franchise wouldn't expect anything less, there's quite a bit new in Reach, possibly making it the definitive game in the series. Follow me down the Halo trail, and get a new vision in a world without Master Chief.

X10: Hands-off with Fable III photo
X10: Hands-off with Fable III
by Ben Perlee

I hope you guys have been having a good time checking out the X10 information that has been flowing out like a stream of Microsoft-branded consciousness. Seriously, it's kicking the butts of everyone who is going, and I'm doing my best to get you the best information possible. Round Two is coming soon!

Now, there's a good reason you'll want to hear about what I've got in store for you -- I got a hands-off demo of Lionhead's Fable III. While there was plenty that was not shown or only hinted at, there's a whole lot that is exciting all the same. Hit the jump for my impressions.

X10: Our first look at Left 4 Dead 2's 'The Passing' DLC

One of the many things that I found delightful about Left 4 Dead 2 was its use of daytime levels. It's not something you see done frequently when it comes to zombies, videogames or otherwise. That said, seeing these dark and ...

X10: Dead Rising 2's new screens have me squeeing

From Microsoft's X10 event today we learned that Dead Rising 2 is coming on August 31st. Nice. If you've ever done time at an anime convention, you know about squeeing. It's like a high-pitched squeal of delight that you'd ty...

X10: Capcom reveals more Marcus and Dom in Lost Planet 2

The weather in San Francisco just isn't "warm" enough to warrant a Gears of War reveal, but that doesn't mean the ongoing Microsoft's media-only X10 event lacks Marcus Fenix and Dom Santiago. A mere three images of the duo's ...

So you know when Alan Wake hit store shelves -- May 19. You know what's inside the Limited Edition box, too. But when you go to the store, what should you be looking for?  This stuff, apparently. Microsoft and Remedy hav...

X10: New Left 4 Dead DLC coming, also comic

That's the first Left 4 Dead, folks. New DLC for the older game, to kind of go alongside the new Left 4 Dead 2 DLC. Confused? There's two DLC packs coming, one for each game. They kind of tie together. First off, the L4D2 DLC...
