If you have a spare hour, here’s a lot of Halo: Reach’s Firefight

It's good to feel excited about Halo again, isn't it? After all those years of Microsoft teasing us, saying stuff like: "The PC is an important platform for us and we are committed to a long and loving relationship with it," and then leaving us at the altar time and time again... well, it started to get a little bit old. But now we know…

Halo: Master Chief Collection to support Windows 7 and possibly mods on PC

In a Q&A session on Reddit today, 343 Industries's Brian "Ske7ch" Jarrard had plenty of good news on the upcoming PC version of Halo: The Master Chief Collection. In addition to Steam support, the remastered Halo series (starting with Halo: Reach) will also support Windows 7 and plenty of PC mod cons too. Among the goodies mentioned were FOV sliders, uncapped frame-rates and even the…

Halo: The Master Chief Collection taking beta sign-ups, likely won’t be Play Anywhere

When Microsoft and 343 Industries announced last week that Halo: The Master Chief Collection was headed to PC, and even to Steam, I was quietly waiting for the other shoe to drop.

While there's still no date on it yet, Halo: The Master Chief Collection is PC-bound, including a planned Steam launch. Better yet, it will include a remastered version of Halo:…

Hollowpoint Troubled As Paradox And Ruffian Part Ways

Last June, Adam took a small look at Hollowpoint [official site], a co-op 2.5D shooter published by Paradox Interactive and made by the former Realtime Worlds folks at Ruffian Games. And... that was about the last we saw of it. That might've been the last we'll ever see of Hollowpoint, as Paradox and Ruffian have "amicably terminated" their "working relationship" due to creative differences. Hollowpoint…

Procedural Cyberpunk CorpWars: Hollowpoint

Hollowpoint is a cooperative shooter (supporting solo play or up to 4 teamchums) set in a future where everything has gone horribly wrong. First there's life extension. That sounds like a good thing but it's only for the rich. Throw AI and advanced robotics into the mix, and the poor end up with no jobs, no security and lives that are nastier, more brutish and…

A Song Of High & Higher: Game Of Glens

My first glance at Crackdown 2 dev Ruffian's attempt to Go Indie had me muttering 'oh great an Angry Birds clone, just what this wretched planet needs.' Then I looked closer and instead rubbed my chin while muttering "huh, World of Goo as an RTS. They could be onto something with that." I didn't mutter either of those things. I stared dumbly at the pitch…
