Halo TV Series Starts Production in 2019

It’s been a long time since the plan for a live-action Halo TV series was first announced. 5 years is a long time to wait. In all honesty there was a point where I didn’t think that it was actually going to happen, but here we are with some exciting news. Showtime has officially ordered 10 hour long episodes for the first season, with production set to begin sometime in 2019. The series comes from director Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Kyle Killen (Awake), and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment. There are so many exciting things that could be explored with this series, and I just hope that the people in charge have as much passion for this project as the fans have for the games. 

Ghost of Tsushima E3 2018 Gameplay Trailer

I first heard about Ghost of Tsushima back in December of last year when a teaser trailer was released during Paris Games Week. If you haven’t seen it or want to watch it again, then just Click Here to check it out. Since then I have been super excited to see more of this game and Sony finally came through with an awesome 9 minute gameplay trailer at this year’s E3. Personally I have been waiting for a detailed, open world, Samurai game to come to either consoles or PC for a long time. Ghost of Tsushima looks absolutely beautiful and I think Sony and Sucker Punch (developer) have really figured out the keys to making a game like this great. I can’t wait to battle enemies armed with my katana and code of honor.

Spider-Man E3 2018 Gameplay Trailer

For the last couple of years Sony has been teasing us with this amazing looking Spider-Man game. There is so much anticipation surrounding this game that they couldn’t possibly live up to all the hype…right? Well thankfully for fans it looks like this game is going to deliver on everything that it has promised and more. For those of you that have followed this page over the years, you know that I am a HUGE Spider-Man fan and can be very critical of how the web head is treated at times. However, this game really does look amazing, so much so in fact, that I am going to be upgrading to the PS4 Pro specifically for this game. A lot of people were able to get their hands on the demo at E3 and everyone is raving about it.

Gears 5 E3 2018 Trailer

Microsoft may not have come to E3 2018 with very many NEW exclusive titles for the Xbox One, but they did show up with the ones that mattered. Of course I am talking about the first official trailer for Gears of War 5! Marcus, J.D., Del, and Kait are back and this time looking even more bad ass in all of their Gears armor. The story seems to revolve more around Kait this time with Marcus, J.D., and Del playing more support characters. Best of all Microsoft decided to bring back split sceen co-op which we haven’t seen in a major AAA title in a long time. Personally thing makes me want to play this game even more. 

The Last of Us 2 E3 2018 Gameplay Trailer

This year’s E3 has been awesome and last night we got to see Sony’s press conference. Though the presentation wasn’t that great they showed off some really cool looking games, one of them being The Last of Us Part II. The last time we saw anything from Naughty Dog was last year in October when they dropped a really intense cinematic trailer for The Last of Us Part II. In case you missed it click here to check it out. However, this new trailer shows off some amazing looking gameplay footage that definitely amps up the intensity from the first game as well as some beautiful cinematics. I can’t wait for this game to come out and continue the story of Ellie and Joel.

Wreck-It-Ralph 2 Official Trailer

After all the waiting Disney finally released the first official trailer for Wreck-It-Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks The Internet. Just like the first movie there is already so many pop-culture Easter eggs through out this trailer that it’s enough to make your head explode. Of course Disney’s vast amount of other properties have some shameless cameos in this movie too, but I’m not complaining about it. However, one thing I couldn’t help but notice was the fact that Felix and Calhoun are nowhere to be seen in this trailer. I wonder if they will be in this movie at all or maybe only referenced a few times. Still, it’s hard to believe that it’s already been almost 6 years since the first Wreck it Ralph hit theaters. 

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Info and Trailers

Yesterday Treyarch revealed the very first look at Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 complete with multi-player mode, zombies, and even a brand NEW battle royale mode. However one thing that was noticeably absent from the game is a campaign mode. Honestly I’m not sure if this is a good thing or not. The last few Call of Duty games have had terrible campaign modes and were a far cry (no pun intended) from some of the awesome stories that were told in the early games. However, this could have been an opportunity to go back to their roots a bit and give fans of the series something that they have been asking for for years. Still I think if you are a fan of the franchise there is a lot to be excited about here.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Official Trailer 3

Definitely one of the games that I am most excited about coming out this year is Red Dead Redemption 2. Rockstar Games released yet another story trailer for the game today and it looks like it is going to be very intense and a bit different from the original. Obviously this is set to be a prequel to the last one and there was even a familiar scarred up face in this new trailer. That’s right, looks like a younger John Marston will be in Red Dead 2 but it doesn’t really seem like the story centers around him this time. I think at this point my only real complaint is that as good as these story trailers are, I would really like to see some actual game play footage.
