November 15th can’t come fast enough for us Halo fans. Almost like Master Chief himself was having a homecoming celebration from being lost in space, the original badass comes to the Xbox 360. It’s a tall order to fill, but the new Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary looks absolutely stunning. It’s amazing what a new coat of paint can do for a game, while releasing an HD remake is certainly not groun...[Read More]

Lucha Fury is a good-looking game, and you can tell that Punchers Impact treated the game as a labor of love. Four luchador wrestlers (who are also slackers) come together to stop a shortage of their favorite energy drink only to stumble upon something more sinister; this is no normal shortage.
