Halo Spartan Assault is a top down, military shooter with microtransactions built-in. At $6.99 it is also one of the most expensive mobile games out on the market today, so is it worth its size in Halo gigabytes or is this game just another floppy Spartan disk? Find out after the jump. (more…)

The bottom line up front is that a gamer killed little kids. No matter how we spin it, the truth is Adam Lanza the Sandy Hook shooter was a gamer. Police have said they found thousands of dollars in video games in his home and odds are pretty good that some of those games are the same shooters you and I play. Two things stick out as I think about the video games angle and Lanza, and you may not like what I have to say but I will not allow gamers to distance themselves from a killer because he was said to be a gamer. We have to own the fact that a gamer killed little kids and yes that makes all of us who consider ourselves to be gamers look bad. (more…)

Thanks to All Games Beta, we have been provided a little insight on the new [but old] enemies of Halo 4 and the weapons they carry.
The Promethean enemy classes include the Knight, Knight Lancer, Knight Commander, Knight Battlewagon, Watcher, Crawler, Alpha Crawler and Crawler Snipe. Each class uses a specific weapon type from the seven available: Boltshot, Binary Rifle, Incineration Cannon, Lightrifle, Suppressor, Scattershot and Pulse Grenade.
Check out our gallery below to get to know each class and weapon a little better.
Halo 4′s achievement list has been revealed by developer 343 Industries in an update on Halo Waypoint by community manager Jessica Shea.
“Developing and designing these game-specific challenges might seem simple but is quite a bit more complex once you begin digging into the psychology of a gamer,” she shared. ”Our primary goal when creating Halo 4’s achievements was to reward milestones and increase replay value while balancing both difficulty and the breadth of game modes. Our secondary goal was to live up to Halo tradition with weird ass names for some of them (hello, The Dongblainer!). While you will only be able to speculate on the exact nature of some of these achievements, here’s a peek at their very basic in-game descriptions.”
There are some very slight SPOILERS of course. Nothing too shocking but read on at your own risk.
After a long summer blockbuster games have finally returned. This week on Talking About Gamers join Robbie, Kyle and Addam as we discuss the two new releases this past week. First up is Sleeping Dogs, a slightly under the radar title showed promise. While it may not have blown anyone’s socks off, we all agree that it’s a solid entry in the open world genre. Slumbering canines aside, the big new release this week was the highly anticipated Darksiders II. Just like the first game we are big fans but this time around the lack of polish gives us pause.
Not everything is new releases this week as we go over some interesting new titles that debuted at GamesCom such asTearAway, Remember Me and Rain. Kyle takes some time to gush about the new multiplayer announcements for Halo 4 and Black Ops 2 and we also discuss the sad story of Onlive’s demise.
