Tristan’s Twisted World: Halo 4 Rumor Roundup #3

After what we saw at E3, a whole lot of speculation came up about the story and multiplayer and I’m here to try to clean some of this stuff up.

The new Promethean enemies that were teased and it was stated that those three enemies weren’t even the main antagonists, but rather new ones. Also, in the trailer it shows some of those A.I. Prometheans blue and some red so there might be a civil war taking place on that planet.

But the big question is who is the main enemy? Well apartly to Halo fiction if you notice in the trailers the mining that’s taking place it points towards the Precurors since they mine planets for energy. Maybe it’s the Forerunners, the Prometheans warrior class may be one of the Diacts and their leader, or it could be both of these, or it could be neither – but at this point the Acient Evil is unknown so I’ll let you all speculate… until next time this has been Tristan’s Twisted World, signing out.

Rumor: Diablo III to be PS3 Console Exclusive, 2013 Release Date

UPDATE: Diablo III was revealed to be releasing on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in 2013. This news came at the PlayStation 4 reveal show and is the latest update on the title thus far. View our Diablo III on our website for more information.

The rest of this article below is from 2012 and remains unedited since the Rumor was confirmed to be true at the later PS4 Reveal Show:

RealGamerNewz reported not too long ago that although Blizzard Entertainment was actively seeking a console solution to their PC exclusive title Diablo III (which released to much fanfare last month).

However, at the time it appeared that the Xbox 360 version of the game could have been holding this undertaking back in a big way. Further rumors speculated that Blizzard might be looking at the option of canceling the console version of the game, though a PS3 version has recently been revealed.

Aaron Alexander of Planet PlayStation reports on the late-breaking rumor just discovered due to a german listing for the game on PlayStation 3 to be released this year. As Aaron notes, Sony has been known for its open online network PlayStation Network.

Rather than paying Blizzard, Sony may be harnessing their ability to allow developers and publishers to take control of their intellectual properties for custom solutions such as user-generated content, cross-platform play, dedicated servers, and even SteamWorks support from Valve.

Tristan’s Twisted World: Halo 4 vs Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

Now this has been a classic match up for FPS some time, but the last time Halo outsold Call of Duty on Xbox was when Halo 3 came out. The past few years Call of Duty has enjoyed breaking sales records and making history. Call of Duty is on all platforms of gaming that means handhelds, computers, and consoles. So of course it sells tons and will probably sell more than every other game again with Black Ops II.

Halo is an Xbox 360 exclusive though and it seems Xbox fans are more pumped for Halo 4 than the same Call of Duty game redundantly being released. So, if you think about this – Call of Duty sells the most on 360 more than over half of its sales come on the 360. So Halo’s sales rely on the 360 and if it could sell more, at least on Xbox, it would mean that Halo has recaptured the multiplayer crown for the FPS. Look at some of the games that have failed against Call of Duty the past few years for the FPS title.

Homefront, which was not a very great game but had some bright spots, Battlefield 3, which was supposed to destroy Modern Warfare 3 in sales then the BF3 beta came out and so many pre orders were canceled since many gamers were displeased, Halo Reach a few years ago but that game sold more than the games that came out before and Bungie never talked about destroying COD – that was a game for the fans to see how the plot started and the fall of Reach.

In gameplay terms of COD, it’s basically the same thing year in and year out and has gotten really boring. Halo 4, from very little gameplay seen, looks like a fresh revised verison of the Halo series. I’m pleased with what im seeing out of 343 and there first game.

Now with E3 just a few weeks ahead we will be able to make more accurate assumptions on these games which will be apart of this 5 part post going up till November. So stayed tuned fellow readers.

Diablo III Servers Down for Maintenance by Blizzard

If you try to get on Diablo III right now you will be met with server busy errors, authentication news prompts, and more. Diablo III has been put offline temporarily at the time of this post, possibly to repair recent patch fixes that have been under demand.

Doing such work the day after release can be seen as a good thing because it proves how dedicated Blizzard is to D3.

Of course this will also knock players off Diablo III completely until they can get the game back up and running, due to the ‘always-online DRM’ being used to some controversy.

Here is the official statement from Blizzard in-game on Diablo III:

BREAKING NEWS:

We’re aware of an issue that is affecting our authentication servers, which may result in failed or slow ogin attempts. We’re currently investigating the cause and will provide updates as they’re available.”

**Note: This issue may not be affecting all players. Blizzard is pretty good though, and should have this fixed up in no time.

**Update: The game appears to be functioning properly again, yet the warning below remains in place, some users may still be experience an outage. For the rest of you, happy killing!:

Chinese Delegation to Have First Presence at Gamescom 2012

Chinese Delegation will have First Presence at Gamescom 2012, notably the largest yearly gaming expo in Europe. This press release gives full mention of Chinese Government encouraging game design and export to other countries, despite China’s closed-in nature. Should a full-scale operation commence from the Multi-Billion Dollar Chinese Gaming Industry, a lot of alien content could be reaching gamers’ hands soon worldwide.

Given how addictive Chinese games can be, mixed with political tension, it will be interesting to see the US market response, should these deals extend West.

Check out the Full Press Release directly from Beijing: “BEIJING–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dozens of China’s leading game enterprises will for the first time unite as the Chinese delegation to join in Gamescom in Germany, the most influential game exhibition in Europe.

The Chinese game enterprises delegation, the first of its kind heading for Europe, was initiated and approved by the Administration of Press and Publication of China, and organized by the Foreign Trade Development Bureau of China’s Ministry of Commerce and Howell International Trade Fair Ltd.

China’s game market boasting a sales revenue of $7 billion in 2011 has not only kept an amazing annual growth of more than 30%, but also raised a group of capable local game enterprises. Leveraging their domestic profits, these enterprises have enhanced their research, development and design strengths so as to compete with the international counterparts.

Many Chinese game enterprises are no more satisfied with their domestic gains and are eyeing overseas expansion, which is well noted by the Chinese government that has been encouraging game innovation and export for years. It is known that the Administration of Press and Publication of China and Foreign Trade Development Bureau of the Ministry of Commerce will provide subsidies for eligible members of the Chinese delegation.

The co-organizer Howell International Trade Fair is also a major organizer of ChinaJoy, one of the leading game expo, which could be regarded as a strong endorsement for the professionalism of the Chinese delegation.”

Diablo III Console Version Could Be Delayed Indefinitely Because of Xbox 360

Originally the rumors came around that Diablo III would be released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. At what seemed like the chance of a lifetime Blizzard actually responded to these rumors by stating more or less that they were actively looking into the possibility. Now before you get your fanboy defense force mobs to the rescue, take this with a grain of salt. The information is coming directly from Xbox Magazine themselves, who had this to say towards the validity of the claims surrounding a console version of Diablo III:

“This is Blizzard, right? The guys whose April Fools jokes regularly scoff at the consoles. Take last year, when they announced Diablo III on Wii? Big yucks, everyone – look at those Wii idiots, wanting a video game as good as ours! And then there was the Starcraft for Kinect April’s Fool gag. Look, Blizzard, Kinect is *our* whipping boy. We’re allowed to take a pop at it, because it’s coming from a place of something that looks like love. When you guys do it, it’s… racist, or something.”

Check out the rest of their article HERE on OXM for more info about Diablo III which releases on Mac and PC in just a couple of weeks – May 15, 2012.

A Land In The Clouds

The game that is believed to be the game of the year by the anticipation and anxiety that brings forth of this came to be coming. BioShock infinite is to be released March 26, 2013; from BioShock 2 to infinite, here we go.

All in all, we have already went from a disastrous underwater city called Rapture to a city in the sky supported by blimps, also known as Columbia, will be the setting for Infinite’s plot. Columbia was built and launched in 1900 by the government. This was also the traveling world fair, but was soon was found out to be a battleship. The ship had killed Chinese civilians during the Boxer Rebellion. This new city was like a boogie man that came down and from place to place was putting its will against the people. However, a Civil Disorder is what had eventually happened in Columbia just like in Rapture.

We anxiously await the land in the clouds which awaits us inside BioShock Infinite for PC, Microsoft Xbox 360, and Sony PlayStation 3.
