So I picked up my Special Edition copy of Halo Wars for the Xbox 360 this morning and I must say this is the nicest Special Edition package I have seen in a very long time, not to mention sexy looking. So what exactly comes with the Special Edition package? Well the Special Edition comes in your standard plastic over inside that cover you will find a tin box containing the game and manual.
Set in an unspecified period of classical Japanese history, ÅŒkami combines several Japanese myths, legends and folklore to tell the story of how the land was saved from darkness by the Shinto sun goddess, named Amaterasu, who has taken the form of a white wolf. The game begins with a flashback to events 100 years prior to the gameâ€™s present, and describes how Shiranui, a pure white wolf, and Nagi, a swordsman, together fought the eight-headed demon Orochi to save Kamiki village and the maiden Nami, Nagiâ€™s beloved.

So my first game I purchased from the UK store Shopto arrived in the country today and I went to pick it up at the local post office. This is the special edition of House of The Dead: Overkill, the special edition includes a comic entitled â€œPrelude to A Overkillâ€ which tells the back-story of one of the characters namely Isaac Washington presented in a noir style similar to that of the Sin City movie.
After my previous blog post I was thinking it would be fun to try and make up a fantasy cast for the upcoming Gears of War movie, so I went and did some searching and found these images that someone matched and compiled to make up the fantasy cast for the movie. And I must say its pretty much spot on up to the point that it is almost scaryâ€¦
It seems that most game developers have reached the uncanny valley with games becoming more and more realistic everyday, pushing the bounders of graphical limits and realism each time they release a new game. But it seems the developers have reached one major hurdle in the quest for the uncanny valley and realism, and that would the breasts. Yes that is right breast physics in games; more often than not these take on a life of their own and forgo the natural law of physics.
