B-B-B-Beta! – I had a chance to play the COD WWII Beta this weekend
- Did anyone else have a chance to play?
- Hands on impressions: Solid COD game, good maps, decent weapons, fun and also punishing MP experiences, Give me this MP, Nazi Zombies and good single player laid over iconic battles of WWII and I’m sold… not ‘blown away’ (yet) but sold.
- Hoping for: Single Story, Bigger MP maps, play the storming the beach at Normandy, paratrooping into France, Western Front trenches, Eastern Front Russia, Attack Dogs!
10 Years ago it was all about
- Halo: May 2007 Halo 3 Beta with Crackdown game (released Feb 2007)
- Sept 25th 2007 Halo 3 launched
- The Witcher – CD Projekt Red’s: Witcher series
- 2007 was a HUGE year in gaming: ROCK BAND, Guitar Hero Legends, BioShock, Mass Effect, Assassin’s Creed, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, Portal, God of War 2, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, The Elder Scrolls IV – The Shivering Isles, The Simpson’s game – LOL, Crysis, The Orange Box, etc.
Speaking of Halo…. One of our unanswered questions from E3 is ‘Where is Hololens?’ – Well Windows Mixed Reality headsets will be available later this year – Microsoft’s Alex Kipman revealed that 343 Industries is working to bring “future Halo experiences into mixed reality,”
Please, don’t do this to the Batman series. Leonardo DiCaprio is being eyed to play the Joker. – They talking Martin Scorsese as a producer, then they use that to attract big name actors, then I fear you end up with a big pile of….. Can’t they find someone that just plays the role best? – Have these guys watched Gotham? Cameron Monaghan KILLS IT as the Joker, but if you wanted someone else, fine… look for a great young actor. How are they considering a 40+ year old actor for an origin story? Craziness.
