New Halo 2 Maps On The Way

30 03 2007

A¬†few months ago there was something going around the community about new¬†Halo 2 maps being released. Bungie has now¬†confirmed that¬†the¬†two maps¬†will be released for $4 for both together. The maps will be released on April 17th. The maps are named Tombstone and Desolation, they are¬†remakes of Hang Em High and Derelict.¬†There will be no way to use Microsoft Points for the transaction since they will be available for download on the original Xbox as well so you will need to use your credit card for these maps. I know this news sounds good to all you hardcore Halo fans out there, I probably won’t be buying them when they release. Who knows, maybe they will become free after a few months pass like map packs before this one. Here are two screenshots of the new maps:

Most of you reading this right now have probably heard of a little title called Grand Theft Auto. Well Rockstar is going to release a trailer on Xbox.com for the new Grand Theft Auto IV in about one hour and fifty minutes from the time I am writing this post (4:06 PM EST). So if you are reading this post around 6:00 EST click this link to see the new trailer. 

EDIT: The trailer is now up, but it may be hard to view since the Rockstar site is being hammered with traffic, as soon as I can I will try and upload it to the blog.

What Did Everyone Do During the Downtime?

28 03 2007

Unless you locked yourself in a room with the lights off while Xbox Live was down yesterday, you would know that the downtime went longer than expected. I was wondering what you guys did during the day. Maybe took a step outside for the first time in a year or two (ha just kidding). This will be a topic on the show for sure, post your responses.
