Halo Reach: Birth of a Spartan

This a new trailer for the new Halo game: Halo Reach. It looks good, but I expected something more.

Halo Reach the las Halo game ever?

In a recent interview with MSNBC, Bungie's GM said that Halo Reach is going to be the greatest Halo game ever.  As they have no plans to revisit Halo, they are going to make Reach the best title yet.  

The story is going to be a deep, Band of Brothers style drama about a small group of people.  As in Band of Brothers: They depended on each other.  The world depended on them.

From the beta it looks as though it shall be a whole new Halo experience, with better customisation and vehicles.  The vehicles themselves are drive from inside, as in when a player is driving a vehicle the camera is inside the cockpit.  This makes it a great contender for any Battlefield game for the next few years.

Unfortunately, this could very well be the last we hear of Halo, except in books and the film that Peter Jackson should really start working on.  Right now.

Charity takes on a new approach...

This here is a man who decided to use his body for charity.  For a price, people will...pull wax strips off of him!  Watch and enjoy as he writhes in pain!

Help! Facebook causes Syphilis!

   When one thinks of syphilis, one thinks of STDs, and when one thinks of STDs, one thinks of carelessness, right?

   Not anymore!  A health official, Peter Kelley (director of public health at Teeside), claims that Facebook is to blame for the recent rise in cases of syphilis.  To quote: "Social networking sites are making it easier for people to meet up for casual sex."  

  I say, "What have you been sniffing?"

Florence + The Machine to sing in Twilight: Eclipse? Gulp.

   Ok.  Florence and the Machine said to NME Magazine that "would do a song for the Twilight soundtrack".  But it's not confirmed yet.  Eclipse has to be signed off first, then Florence Welch could be confirmed as involved.  Well, I guess I'd shop my balls off just to listen to her sing... As would most male music fans.  As it is, she has three songs in the top 40 Uk Hit Singles Chart on MTV (You've Got The Dirtee Love; Dog Days Are Over and You've got the Love), proving that genuine talent, years of hard work and innovation do work out, even without a major recording label behind your back, covering your every move.  You hear that Justin Bieber?  What if there was no Usher?  Hey, best of luck, just watch it dude.  Watch it.

   New look.  You like?

I just found the Bad Company movie...

   Guys, brilliant news.  I just found the Bad Company movie.  Well, it's not Bad Company as such, but it should be!  It quite possibly takes all the best bits from every action move in the 80s and 90s, and rolls them into one!  The cast, hell they're tough.  And bad.  So here it is.

2nd Place for Aston Martin!!!!!

Aston Martin claims second place at the 8 Heures du Castellet, one of the many races in the Le Mans series.  The LMP1 009 car finished in second place after a faultless 8 hours!  This time round, I think that Audi and Peugot are going to have to move over.  Guys! This is Aston territory! Get outta the way!

Best Commercial Ever Made

Bad Company. You wish.

  All right.  I've got to come out with this.  I can't stand the pressure on my chest, the monkey on my back....

  I've just played Battlefield Bad Company 2, and I am about to make the most dangerous comment around.  It might, possibly, maybe, be the best game I've ever played.  Ever.

  The graphics are brilliant.  Just a few days ago I said how graphics have hit a brick wall.  I'll tell you this much, they're definitely digging their way out now.  For example, during the first mission you're on a truck, chased by quad bikes and other trucks.  Your assault rifle has a grenade launcher add on (see where I'm going with this?).  If the grenade detonates under the quad bike, the whole thing gets thrown into the air.  Realistically. The characters seem real because of the way they act, the way they interact not only with you, but with each other...

  Hell, I'm drooling already.  So far, and I'm in the middle of the fourth mission, I have to say that it is very good, perhaps even brilliant.  One small criticism I have is about the lack of night-vision gadgets, or at least a torch.  But otherwise, I think it's better than Modern Warfare 2.  Now I shall bar my door, and hope CoD fans don't come pouring in through the window, I Am Legend style.............
