When was the last time the wind said “hostiles” to you?

April 3, 2007

Epic Games has announced that a title update is coming soon as it is going through the certification process. A post in the official Gears of War forums revealed that the update will include a brand new multiplayer gametype:

The next title update for Gears of War is currently going through the certification process. We’ll have more detail about the update next week but I can tell you that in addition to fixing a whole bunch of glitches, and providing 720p for VGA users running at 1280×1024, it will contain a brand new multiplayer gametype called Annex.

Some folks who got to play it a few weeks ago said they think it is our best multiplayer gametype yet but I’ll leave it for you fans to decide what you think for yourself when it shows up soon on Xbox Live. More details next week.

As to what to expect from this new multiplayer game type, its name suggests it could be a territory based game mode.

Epic clarified it will be free.

Intercooler

February 17, 2007

Just recently, I encountered my first error with my 360 unit. It kept freezing and then it just died. Three red lights around the power circle kept blinking. Luckily, my warranty was extended and I was able to get my 360 repaired free of cost. When/If you have to send in your 360 to Microsoft, be sure to constantly call them about it. It took me a week and a half just for them to send a box for my 360. I bought a NYKO Intercooler and havn’t experienced a problem with my 360 yet. I also noticed that it doesn’t overrev like it used to before i bought it. Just thought I’d throw this info. out for you guys!

Halo 3 Starry Night

December 15, 2006

When I first saw this trailer, it blew my mind away. This commercial does everything it’s supposed to, to capture the audience. It draw my attention with the kids talking and then the Intense action got me hooked. If you pay close attention you can see that Master Cheif awakens after being tossed about in a Warthog. I think this is how he gets his armor scratched up as shown in the first commercial.

Wii launch a success!

November 22, 2006

Nintendo launching of the Wii was a huge success with 716,000 consoles sold. Nearly tripled the amount of Ps3’s sold. Personally, I didn’t think I would be the one walking home with a Wii Sunday morning. It was a last minute decision for me and I don’t regret it. The Wii has been amazing so far especially with Zelda Twilight Princess. The Wiimote and the nunchuck makes gaming more relaxing. Nintendo plans to release a million more Wii’s before Christmas and plan to have 4 million more out at the end of January.  In my opinion, the success of these next gen consoles was brought to you by Ebay. On Ebay, people can screw each other over by ridiculously overcharging because the supply is low and the demand is high for these next gen consoles. I found it absurd when I saw a Ps3 sold for $31,000. It’s either me, or our society seems really impatient and eager to throw money away.

Create your own Xbox 360 game!

November 5, 2006

It is here! XNA studio beta. With this program you can create your own 360 game. I believe you can also play it, but you cannot share it and get it rated if you don’t pay the subscription fee of $99 a year. Look on the bright side… it could be worse like having two WoW accounts! LOL! Directly download XNA Beta here.

Attention 360 Owners

October 24, 2006

Do not download any of the new game updates. I found that both the games I updated (G.R.A.W. and Halo 2) corrupted soon after. Whenever I turn the 360 on with those two games in it I get the three red light error and constant freezing at the boot menu. I contacted Microsoft today and they had no idea what I was talking about. All you have to do is go into your hardrive on the 360 menu and delete the update. I will be providing pictures showing proof of error and steps to correcting it.

“Podcast” change!

September 27, 2006

Hey team! Just to inform you, you can no longer use the term “podcast.” Apple has copyrighted it and is in the processing of fining blogs that use this term in their newscast or on their blog. I suggest changing the name to “blogcast,” “gamecast,” or even “info. cast.” This would help our blog prosper and not be dragged down by stupid copyright violations. Here is the SOURCE and the information!

Site Ideas

September 21, 2006

The Xbox Gamercards stopped working so I took them down. It was also unfair of me to have them up there because we also have Sony and Nintendo people apart of the team. I have come up with another idea. You guys can email me a face shot of you (some what big) so that I or another professional can make it into a cartoon with cool colors to have on the right side. Also, when emailing me include your Full Name and Username! Send emails to zeroradio@gmail.com
