Halo: Micro-Transaction Wars
A Halo game is coming to PC! And it's a handsome-looking top-down shooter called Halo: Spartan Assault. Excitingly it's ah... ahaha. Oh, no, haha... Oh dear. Touch controls and micro-transactions, is it?
I'm not sure how to say this with a straight face, so I'll just type it: It's a Windows 8 exclusive. Microsoft made a game for Windows. But the other Windows. The one for phones and stuff. It'll still work on your desktop, but... Oof, I suppose I shouldn't laugh. There's a trailer, ever so inevitably, below.
Yes, those are tablets flying through space. The game looks quite nice, I suppose. It's being developed by Vanguard Games and 343 Industries (Vanguard made the excellent Gatling Gears and Greed Corp). It's going to have weekly online events, and a shop for microtransactions, despite the game costing $7 to begin with. Hmm.
