Puzzle Quest: Challange of the Warlords has been announced for the XBLA today! This will be a must have for fans of puzzle games and RPG’s as it a hybrid of both genres. If you want to know more check out The 1UP Show: Episode 71 for a breakdown on what this game is all about. I predict it will take the arcade by storm.
I played the SWAT game type in Halo 2 for the first time last night. It is basically a more traditional shooter gametype where you have no shields, no radar, and head shots rule the day! As I have said previously I have been enjoying my recent H2 experience. Halo 3 beta is coming up quick, gotta get ino game shape. Also if you have time, be sure to check out the official Halo 3 gamesite.
New Gears of War maps are on their way to the Marketplace this Thursday for 800 points or FREE (on Sept 3, 2007). Here is what you can expect:
- Bullet Marsh: In this Kryll-infested swamp, an old generator still powers the area lights. A few stray bullets could easily knock out the generator, leaving combatants to fend for themselves against the Kryll.
- Garden: This overgrown and crumbling conservatory still has a working fertilization and pesticide system. This system can pose a serious hazard to anyone who ventures into the greenhouse without first venting the air.
- Process: Teams must fight for control of this subterranean Imulsion processing plant, still active despite the cessation of the Pendulum wars.
- Subway: Timgad’s Central Subway station used to serve as a central hub for commuters. Now the tunnels are crawling with Locust.
I will have to check these out of course. Big news day! I wonder what tomorrow will bring? (Catan).
