The other day we posted about BioShock's new DLC, stating new plasmids and the ability to turn off vita-chambers. There's more, don't worry. We've got the details on the new plasmids, as well as the answer to "what the hell does Horizontal FOV actually do?" While 2K ponders a sequel to BioShock, we can, at least, enjoy the bliss that is the first, again, if we so desire, we and our brass balls.

Undertow is what Xbox Live Arcade needs more of: a simple premise with perfect execution and excellent multiplayer through Live. Play with up to 16 players through Live or split-screen locally or System Link. Or just add bots. Capture the spawn-points to reduce the enemy's "tickets" or lives to zero. An absolutely simple, stunning game with deep combat and strategy, Undertow is a testament to the greatness developers can achieve in such a small package.
game: Halo 3
review | 10/08/07 | Chris Martin
You've been watching The Ticker, you've seen the reviews, you've been playing the game. Halo 3 has had a phenomenal launch, selling over 2 million copies in the first night of release. We've taken the good Master Chief into the heart of the ark, killed hundreds of thousands of Covenant, and rescued Cortana from the clutches of the Gravemind. Now here's our review of the most anticipated videogame of 2007. Is Halo 3 still the reason to own an Xbox 360?

Tuesday can't come soon enough. But if you're looking for Halo 3 reviews, and what all the buzz is about, then we've got you covered. Gamesfirst has the links to all the Halo 3 reviews, as well as overall thoughts from sites all over the interweb. Our own review is forthcoming (as we have to wait for the release) but in case you're curious about what everybody else is saying, this article is for you.
Come back to this article to see updated reviews as the week, and the Halo 3 playing, continues.
game: Gears of War
editorial | 09/20/07 | Chris Martin
Gears of War is considered one of the best shooters on the Xbox 360, scratch that, one of the best shooters period. But But Epic's gruesome stop-and-popper is still second best on Xbox Live losing to a last generation Halo 2. It's a great game, sure, but it has problems. Serious problems. Find out why Chris would be so quick to toss GoW to the wind, perhaps you sympathize.
game: Halo 3 ActionClix
news | 09/19/07 | Chris Martin
If you can't get it, this crazy hype of Microsoft's, out of your head, we have the salvation for you. A "little" salvation. A "tiny" treasure. A "diminutive" diversion. Halo 3 just six days away, and Halo ActionClix invades your favorite hobby store. There's nothing small about it, this tabletop game is going to be huge.
game: Ghost Squad

Once the reveared developers of Shenmue, Virtua Fighter, Afterburner, Space Harrier (the list goes on) are hard at work bringing their "light gun shooter" Ghost Squad to the Nintendo Wii. Which means it's a "Wii gun shooter" or a "light Wii shooter" or a "Wiimote shooter." Whatever you call it, it's very much in Wii vein with 4-player co-op. Sure, the game has been out in arcades since 2004, but better late than never, I always say.

We went in expecting Magic the Gathering Online Version 3, but what we got was much, much bigger than we anticipated. PAX 07 was great for a number of reasons - concerts, contests, Family Feud - but Wizards of the Coast's ace in the hole Gleemax took us aback, slapped us around, and handed to us the most complete vision of an online gaming community we've ever seen. Complete with indie game developer support, event hosting, and cross-game currency and trading. Don't know about Gleemax? You should, and here's why...

From the article: "BioShock is the latest effort from Irrational Studios (now 2K Boston and 2K Australia) and it's a massive undertaking, many years in the making. And it's so good, we might not see a game of it's caliber many years after. BioShock is a shooter, a retro sci-fi thriller, a revenge story, a dystopian allegory, an adventure, and to a lesser extent a role-playing game. But BioShock is first and foremost a first-person-shooter. It leaves no question in the player's mind, and doesn't dance around it's pedigree in the way Deus Ex did, or the way System Shock 2 was sparse on the shooter side, heavy on the RPG. No. BioShock is a game where you definitely have to kill things. And kill things aplenty."

This came out of nowhere. The studio formerly known as Irrational (they changed their two divisions' names to 2K Australia and 2K Boston) get a big pat on the back for sneaking their demo onto Xbox Live on Sunday. Bioshock, which puts you through the eyes of a crash victim who gets stuck in the underwater dystopia known only as Rapture, just went gold last week. Now, we'll get to sample what we're betting is going to be a ground-braking experience.
news | 07/16/07 | Chris Martin
It actually came to Xbox Live last week, but I thought I'd share it anyway. Both Blue Dragon and Ace Combat 6 have their own demos, but so do 2K Sports' The BIGS, EA's Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and THQ's Stuntman: Ignition. Quite a bit to keep you busy if you don't have enough games already.
review | 06/04/07 | Jamie Gergen
While Sandio Technologies promises to revolutionize the way your mouse and game operate together, the learning curve is steep and difficult to overcome. Instead of improving your gaming experience and making you a better player, the 3D Gaming 'O Mouse will instead become an obstacle to overcome, as often as not. While the design works well for RTS camera controls, it falls apart when you move to faster paced titles like First Person Shooters. The inclusion of analog controls on the mouse may very well be a good idea, but not in this iteration, and after some time with the new mouse we simply can't recommend it at the $79 price tag.

"A gift to gamers" indeed. Microsoft's interns and Carbonated Games of Uno fame have made a wonderful shooter that just comes up on the short-lived side of things. Still, this one shouldn't be missed, not for being able to play 4 player coop over live or local, not for the sweet boss battles, and not, especially not, for the brevity.
game: Lunar Knights
review | 05/10/07 | Amanda Bateman
In Lunar Knights, you take control of two different heroes, Lucian and Aaron, one powered by the sun, one powered by the moon, in an attempt to free the world from the vampiric legion. If you are familiar with the Vampire Hunter (Baktai GBA) series, you're already familiar with Lunar Knights. It is, however, Kojima Productions' first foray on the Nintendo DS, and it's one worth a look.
game: The Darkness
preview | 03/17/07 | Chris Martin
The Darkness is shaping up to be a must have game for not only fans of the Top Cow comic, but for fans of first person shooters. Blending supernatural elements and gunplay, The Darkness puts you in the shoes of Jackie Estacado, our resident anti-hero, as he seeks revenge on his father's murderer. The newest video is a montage of some new and old footage, and shows off the darkling powers and what makes them a force to be reckoned with.
