Achievement Unlocked: Finished Halo Wars

(Image from the Official Halo Wars Community Site)

Yes, despite my heavy work routine, I managed to finish Halo Wars.

Mission 15 was a bitch. But what a great game.

See you on Xbox LIVE!

The Resident Evil Activity Book For Kids

Hey, this could have been a clever idea for a non-traditional advertising campaign, Capcom.

Pointless, but yes, to quote blogger Craig Axxie, it’s quite brilliant.

Oh well.

Games take over corporate logos

Because these kinda things are fun. And that’s good enough for me. Thanks, Games Radar.

The Force Unleashed

(Image from Wired)

No, that’s not a picture of my bedroom.

It’s an image from Wired Magazine‘s preview of the upcoming Lucas Arts videogame, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

Fuck. I need a PS3/Xbox360/Wii now.

Console Games I Need to Play

Sporadic play on the Xbox360 in the office is just not cutting it, anymore.

I need to get my own console, damn it.

And I will play these games until my thumbs are sore, my throat runs dry and the (wireless) controller feels like putty in my hands:

Afro Samurai

Samuel L. Jackson‘s voice in a game. Do I really need any other incentive to play this?

Gears of War 2

I’ve been waiting for this sequel as much as the next 11 year-old on Xbox LIVE. I’m a huge fan of third-person perspective shooters. And blowing shit up on screen.

Killzone 2

It was fun on PS2. I’m betting it will be even more fun on PS3.

Soulcalibur IV

Who really doesn’t want to play as Darth Vader?

Halo Wars

The folks at Ensemble, the developers of Halo Wars, pretty much summed it up for me:

Warthogs are cool. Scorpions are cool. Controlling lots of Warthogs and Scorpions and sending them into battle is really, really cool.

It’s a perfect match: Halo and real-time strategy.

What else is there?

50 Cent: Blood on the Sand

You know you’ve been spending too much time at work when you starting missing news like Fiddy’s latest video game, 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand.

According to the official spiel, players will be able to “play as one of the world’s biggest hip-hop stars in an all out battle to protect 50 Cent’s assets and to collect payment from a crooked overlord.”

Check out some screens or read the full preview at Gamespot.

Man, imagine taking out hoods with Lloyd Banks on co-op.

Scratch that; did you know people will soon be able to play chess with RZA at Wuchess?

Imagine beating Fiddy at his own game!

Sorry. Pardon the pun.

My Favorite TV Commercials of 2007

These ads made advertising a lot more fun this year.

Halo 3 “Believe”

Bud Light’s “Rock, Paper, Scissors”

Petronas “Tan Hong Ming”

Ubisoft’s “Assassin’s Creed”

And of course, Agency Fusion’s “Make My Logo Bigger Cream”
