Insurgency, developed by New World Interactive, is a refreshing addition to the first-person shooter genre. It is a hardcore FPS which promotes team play and methodical planning to win the match. Insurgency provides you with no mini-map, and a very limited HUD (map objectives, remaining magazines). Friendly-fire is always on which makes you think before you shoot. It takes very few bullets to kill your enemy which, as a result, makes you cautiously and constantly check corners with the leaning function of the game. The game feels like a Counter-Strike, Red Orchestra, and Rainbow Six hybrid. PC shooter fans will not be disappointed with this game. Insurgency is multi-player only title with the exception of a practice mode where you can face AI bots to practice tactics.

When reviewing a remake of a classic, it definitely helps to have a familiarity with the source material. Unfortunately I can’t claim much of a stake to that when it comes to Strider, and that’s probably criminal in some folks’ books, but at the same time it lends a different perspective to the proceedings. That is, whether the game is good enough to stand on its own merit without catching any breaks merely for nostalgia’s sake. I can remember seeing the original 1989 Capcom classic in the arcade but if I ever played it, it might not have been more than a couple of times. However, Double Helix has seriously piqued my interest in the original if it’s truly anything like what they’ve put together here.

Microsoft has announced a very Xbox One bundle indeed, the “Titanfall” Xbox One Special Edition Bundle. This bundle is priced at $499, if you haven’t figured that out, that means the game is FREE with this bundle! Read on to find out more straight from Microsoft:
After it was first unveiled at E3 last year, we were delighted to see “Titanfall” quickly become the most anticipated game of the new console generation.

Heralded as the “next generation of gaming” and a “killer app” for Xbox One, the excitement and anticipation for “Titanfall” has been building not just amongst gamers, but also among the Xbox team. We bet big on “Titanfall” from the beginning and Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts were tremendous partners to our team as we developed Xbox One.
In many ways, the launch of “Titanfall” will enable us to deliver the first truly next generation multiplayer game – one that will take advantage of the new party and chat improvements we’re delivering, build on the power of the cloud in a way only Microsoft can, and connect fans on Xbox Live, home of the best multiplayer and service in gaming. With Xbox One, we invested in features like multiplayer alerts so you never miss a match while watching TV and so much more.
To celebrate the launch of “Titanfall”, we wanted to do something special. For those of you who are already fans of Xbox One, we hope this will encourage more of your friends to join you on day one for “Titanfall” on Xbox One. If you’ve been waiting for the biggest game of the generation before purchasing your Xbox One, this special, limited time offer is perfect for you. In partnership with Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts, we’re excited to announce the Xbox One “Titanfall” Bundle, available starting March 11 for $499.99* at select retailers.
Now available for pre-order, the bundle includes:
· Download code for a digital copy of “Titanfall”
· Standard Xbox One console and Kinect sensor

Of course, this is an incredible deal, only offered to celebrate the launch of Titanfall, for a limited time. We expect these special bundles will sell out quickly. You can learn more about this special offer here if you are in the U.S. or here if you are in Canada.
343 Industries now firmly holds onto the Halo property and their next entry is Halo Spartan Assault, developed alongside Vanguard Games for all of Microsoft’s platforms. 343 Industries is Microsoft’s new studio filled to the brim with a lot of industry talent and put out Halo 4 over a year ago. Vanguard Games has some experience in crafting small games. In 2010, they made Greed Corp and the following year, Gatling Gears. Both titles garnered average to above average scores. Greed Corp is a turn-based strategy title and Gatling Gears is a twin-stick shooter. Long-story short, it appears that this isn’t Vanguard Games first rodeo with a game like Halo Spartan Assault. Can they take the lessons learned of years prior and make something worthy of the Halo name?
