Every weekend I’ll be tackling a new cooperative game with my sister. This past weekend we kicked things off with Lego Marvel Super Heroes on the Xbox One. We had an hour of awesome commentary but unfortunately I forgot to press the button to record our audio 🙁 Next weekends edition will have commentary but for now enjoy the first 2 missions of Lego Marvel Super Heroes.
This has been a great week for gamers especially Xbox owners. From getting an Xbox One without Kinect to the major changes to Xbox Live Gold. Why not end the week with some the announcement of a brand new Halo? Well thats what we have here for you guys. Halo 5: Guardians is in development and will be bigger than Halo 4 in every way. From the game cover it looks like we’re dealing with a new chief or new armor or a parallel universe.
[blockquote cite=”http://news.xbox.com/2014/05/games-halo-journey-announcement”]“Halo 5: Guardians” is a bigger effort than “Halo 4.” That applies to the content and scope of the game, as well as the technology in what’s now a brand new and more powerful engine. Certainly there are some core elements carried over from prior games, but we’ve invested a huge effort in retooling our tech to take full advantage of the Xbox One’s hardware and ecosystem to create worlds and experiences worthy of next-gen.[/blockquote]
2015 is the year of Halo, with the launch of the Halo TV show and now Halo 5:Guardians.
More options for the gamers. Seems like the keywords that Microsoft wants all the gamers to remember. Another option heading to Xbox One is the Games With Gold program. It’s already been a very successful program on the Xbox 360 but it in June it heads to Xbox One. The two games kicking off the program is Max: The Curse of Brotherhood and Halo: Spartan Assault. Two games I’ve always been interested in but couldn’t find a good reason to purchase them. The perks of having an Xbox Live Gold membership continues to grow as we get closer to E3. What else could be waiting for us in LA?
No one knew if this day would ever come. Remember this day people! Today is the day Xbox announced more options for gamers. More specifically, the option to purchase a Xbox One without a Kinect for $399. I would’ve thought the Microsoft money team would’ve saved this one for E3 but they must have some more blockbuster announcements to throw at us. With the price gap gone between the two consoles, the next gen fight just got interesting.
Exciting news for Xbox One owners today, as two and a half months after the consoles release, we finally have an answer as to when gamers can us an actual gaming headset with their system. While a specific release date has not been announced, Xbox One owners can look forward to the Xbox One Stereo Headset hitting stores in early March for $79.99. If you already have a compatible gaming headset, an adapter will be made available at the same time for $24.99. All of the pertinent details are available after the break.
