      This week a few graphical treats and one graphical punch in the fanny. We take a look at DOA4, matchmaking playlists and some mutant biker gangs, roaming through the desert.

      346vdb1.jpg

      Ha! I am heading off to the desert tomorrow for the Xbox 360 launch event called Zero Hour! Which I am reliably informed looks something like this:

      When is It? We'll play Xbox 360 games from sundown on November 20 through 12:01 A.M. on November 22.
      What's On? Hundreds of gaming stations fully tricked out with hi-def monitors and digital sound Play the full Xbox 360 launch lineup

      • First opportunity to play a 32-player match of Perfect Dark Zero on Xbox Live
      • Highly anticipated games that will ship this year and into 2006, from 2K Games, 2K Sports, Activision, Bethesda Softworks, Capcom, Electronic Arts, Microsoft Game Studios, Namco Hometek, SEGA®, Square
      • Enix, Tecmo, THQ, and Ubisoft
      • Full access to all Xbox Live Arcade titles
      • Demos, sneak peeks, and live game play of Gears of War
      • Round-the-clock refreshment stations
      • Live entertainment and music, including a genuine "Kaiju Big Battel" and rock band Louis XIV
      • Exclusive schwag, such as Zero Hour Xbox 360 faceplates
      • Onsite Best Buy store where partygoers can purchase their Xbox 360 consoles, games, and accessories.



      There's a small chance I will be playing some backward compatible Halo 2 matches and answering any questions leveled at me. Unless they are regarding our next project â€" at which point armed security guards will hustle me into a limo and away to an undisclosed location (the pub). I will aslo sign ANYTHING, including bad checks.

      We should carefully point out that apart from HDTV resolution, none of the features associated with Xbox 360's Live environment will have the slightest effect on Halo 2 â€" when you play it, the game will look, feel and act exactly as it does now. That means feedback, cheat reporting, mod banning and all that stuff, will continue just as it is now.

      You CAN play Halo 2 from your 360 against someone using an Xbox and vice versa. They won't see any difference either. Same thing holds true for System Link â€" you can use any Ethernet cable to connect the two different systems â€" even the Xbox-style "crossover" cable. The emulation is 100% - from interface to netcode. All identical. And in our serious testing, no difference in gameplay or balance was detected between the two systems.

      D-O- Eh?

      We've been involved with the development process of this very closely for two reasons. One is that we are obsessive about making sure our universe is treated with kid gloves, respect and stunning brilliance. Two is that we heart Itagaki and are totally obsessed with seeing what he's got up his sleeves.

      One odd conversation we had with Team Ninja, was regarding the colors of Spartan costume made available in DOA4. Some colors we wanted to do in Halo 2 we couldn't for balance reasons. Black, for example. But the good news is, since there are no gameplay balance issues, Black is back, baby. Black Spartan = best Spartan. Sketch is in love with the Steel model (pictured below). You will decide when DOA4 arrives. 1UP.com's excellent interview with Mr. Itagaki is a must-read, but it doesn't tell the whole story.

      We've been playing with Spartan 458 on all sorts of levels against all sorts of characters and personally speaking, she and Ryu Hayabusa are now my go-to characters. My favorite match up however, is Spartan 458 versus Hitomi, just because she's dwarfed by our Spartan.

      Team Ninja knocked it out of the park. The lighting, the animation, and most of all, the gameplay. She feels like a Spartan. Huge, pummeling strikes, thundering throws and bone-breaking grapples. The way we envision Spartan hand to hand combat is the way Team Ninja represented it in the game. We'll bring you more on this soon.

      Noguchi, the King of all Tools says, "I heart Itagaki too. I wish Itagaki would do PR for us." Noguchi also says cryptically, "I'm working on stuff that nobody really understands, but that makes the game infinitely better." He is of course talking about our next project, revealing officially at least, that it's a game. I reckon it's cloth physics or sparks. Or a new sweat engine.

      I lucked out last week and got the chance to play a little somethin'. That's all I'm saying. Except that it was a blast, and surprising at times.

      I got asked by a LOT of people if we had large versions of a couple of top story images from our front page. After careful consideration (read: Andrew made them and gave me them so I could take all the credit) I have decided to share them with you. Just click these for the big versions.

      For the full story about this visit Halo 2's home site at www.bungie.net and check out the news there, hehe LoL!

      Ahn'Qiraj: patch 1.9: The Gates of Ahn'Qiraj

      The Gates of Ahn'Qiraj will house two massive, unique dungeons - the Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj, a 20-man raid dungeon, and the Temple of Ahn'Qiraj, a 40-man raid dungeon. As players delve deeper into the mysteries of Ahn'Qiraj, they will discover revelations of the Silithid infestation and their shadowy masters, the Qiraji. Players will have to complete a world event of massive proportions before they can open the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj on their realm.

    • Halo 2: One Year Later

      13 years ago

      It's Halo 2's very first birthday. We celebrate by taking a look at GASP Halo and Halo 2 running on Xbox 360, and a bunch of other really cool stuff you'll probably ignore because of 720p screens.

      topstorygraphic2yr.gif

      First things first: Thank you for supporting Bungie, Halo and Halo 2. You guys rock, and we love you. It's the anniversary of Halo 2, the game that launched on November 9th, 2004 and forever changed the way we curse.

      A year after Halo 2 arrived in stores, and almost four years since the original Halo, it seems only logical that we should make them prettier right? Although that prettiness has a relatively high entry point â€" the arrival of a new generation of hardware in the shape of the Xbox 360.

      A while back, Microsoft announced that the 360 would have some level of backward compatibility. A handy feature for folks with big Xbox collections moving into the future. We worked closely with that team to ensure that Halo and Halo 2 both performed according to plan. That meant a lot of work for our test team. To clarify, the "new" version of Halo or Halo 2 is simply the disk you have already. Pop it into your 360 and it'll load up just like before. You will have to log into Xbox Live to enable Halo 2's online functions, but both games will work immediately.

      But here's another bonus â€" the hardware in the 360 can do a lot of nifty stuff, and specifically in the cases of Halo and Halo 2, it can display the graphics in wide screen, at 720p, with full scene anti-aliasing. And it doesn't look kludgy, artifacty or smeary like an upscanning DVD player. The best way to describe it is that both games look like they're running on a PC at those resolutions.

      We'll have some more information about these resolutions on Friday.

      Now, to reiterate, we didn't redo any of the old textures or geometry â€" this is simply the game you already own, running at a higher resolution. The results are not miraculous, but for owners of HDTVs (or VGA monitors with the appropriate cable) they are sweet.

      Do they work on Live? Like we already explained, they work exactly as they did before â€" that means System Link and split-screen for Halo, but â€" of course - no Live play (just like before!) â€" and for Halo 2 â€" System Link, Xbox Live and split screen as before. And yes, your existing Gamertag and Live Account will work just fine. I should note that split screen in 720p has obvious benefits.

      No.....No......she broke my heart.....

      She lied to me, broke my heart....so she should be asking me for forgiveness.

    • 343winks

      13 years ago

      Then I was the bigger fool.

      I am sorry sean. *kneels in front of you*

      please forgive me.

      *shows you my bandaged wrist (no seriously)*

      what do you think?

    • 343winks

      13 years ago

      You were right....and I didn't believe you.

      Now I am sitting her with bandages on my wrist and a dashed heart.

      Sorry Sean...I'm sorry for not believing you.

      Hello Hello Kasi, how's life?

    • 343winks

      13 years ago

      Whether she is lying, telling the truth (although I don't know why someone would lie about that.) Doesn't change my heart for her.

      Just because you have agrudge doesn't mean she is not who you say she is.

    • 343winks

      13 years ago

      No.....You make your own decisions Sean. I have no control over them.

      I don't care anyway. Mods are stupid and are thus not a way to describe someone.

      Whether I believe Yas or not is not really your jurisdiction now is it Sean?

    • 343winks

      13 years ago

      Talent for gulliability.

      Oh thanks for the neg mod. Apprciate it, but it has no effect on me.

    • 343winks

      13 years ago

      Why don't you just fuck her and that's it.

    • 343winks

    • 343winks

      13 years ago

      You have to sit her down and explain it to her.

      Ask her what is on her mind and tell her the situation. If she likes you, go for it. If she doesn't than keep her as a friend, I guess.

      Tell her truth and that is all. Sit her down, one-on-one and look at her straight in the eye. If it is serious, then be serious about it.

      I wanna make you smile whenever you’re sad
      Carry you around when your arthritis is bad
      All I wanna do is grow old with you

      I’ll get your medicine when your tummy aches
      Build you a fire if the furnace breaks
      Oh it could be so nice, growing old with you

      I’ll miss you
      I’ll kiss you
      Give you my coat when you are cold

      I’ll need you
      I’ll feed you
      Even let ya hold the remote control

      So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink
      Put you to bed if you’ve had too much to drink
      I could be the man who grows old with you
      I wanna grow old with you
