Tuesday Triple-Header Featuring: Puzzle Quest, Halo 2, and Gears

A few things I need to talk about today so lets get at it:


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).




I like CFL Football, Video Games, and Social Media....so here I am!
