Hey peeps! The Poid Pipper is getting down and dirty with the latest Xbox Live newsbeat. Let’s take a look at the spotlights for Sept. 20 – Oct. 3.
Gears of War 3
Partnering with the U.S. Air Force for the release of Gears of War 3, Microsoft announced that Sept. 20 – Sept. 26 is “Golden Wings Week”. By playing any match online for this limited duration may result in unlocking the Golden Lancer or Golden Hammerburst weapon for online play. I want a golden weapon…
I am not normally a fan of soccer games, but FIFA 11 was incredible. So the anticipation for FIFA 12’s release on Sept. 27 is building up. The developers changed to a “Player Impact Engine” that ensures each action to have real-world physicality. Beyond the physics, the online play will make for an interesting twist. Being able to develop your own team franchise by buying, selling, and trading players online opens the door wide open for possibilities.
