Pixel Force: Halo Game Trailer

Awesome looking retro demake of Halo by the Pixel Force genius Eric Ruth. With classic 2D gameplay inspired by Contra, Metroid, Mario, Bionic Commando and MegaMan, the game offers 10 levels, replete with boss battles, which are based on the original Halo Combat Evolved (maybe they should have called it Halo: Combat Devolved). Retro gaming fans make sure you download this, if this had come out in the 1980s, it would have been considered a classic.

Jets Upset Patriots 28-21

For the second straight week, the Jets beat one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history and are now one step away from their first Superbowl appearance in 40 years. The New England Patriots were a prohibitive favorite this Sunday playing at home in Foxboro, MA, with most bookies and sports sites picking the Pats as a 7-8.5 point favorite - ironically it was the Jets who won by a touchdown, and the game wasnt even as close as the final 28-21 score, with the Jets having shut down Brady and the New England offense for almost the entire game. Jets coach Rex Ryan and various Jets players talked a lot during the week leading up to this game, but on Sunday it was the Jets defense which did all the talking.

Bond Says Tron Multiplayer is Amazing

Ive been trying to score a copy off ebay, but my bids keep getting sniped at the last moment and the auction always closes a dollar or two above my max bid. Well, after seeing James Bond 007 play the multiplayer for days on end with nobody else from my friends list, I figured the game must be great, and Im determined to get a copy ASAP. I texted him on XBL while he was playing, and he replied, "im ssooooooooo hooked." I dont need any further evidence. If Bond likes it this much, it has to be fun. Although he said the controls took some getting used to, Im willing to put in some time learning the game. Im going to bid $35 on ebay right now, wish me luck.

Jets Pull off Stunner in Indianapolis

The New York Jets pulled off an epic victory over the Indianapolis Colts Sunday night, defeating the invincible Peyton Manning and sending the Jets to a showdown with the New England Patriots next week in Foxboro. The Jets had the lead 14-13 but turned the ball over to Manning with a bit less than 3 minutes on the clock. Of course, the Hall of Fame quarterback drove them down the field and setup the Hall of Fame field goal kicker Adam Vinatieri - possibly the most clutch kicker of all time - who nailed a 50 yard field goal to give the Colts the lead at 17-14.

I knew that Manning and company would score when they got the ball back, but what I didnt know was that the Jets werent done playing football for the evening.

There was still time left on the clock, a bit less than a minute, and it was all the Jets needed. The Jets offensive special teams play is truly special, with their backup quarterback returning kicks as well as several defensive players like Antonio Cromartie, who caught the high end over end kickoff and rocketed out of the Jets territory, dashing all the way to the 47 yard line. From there, a couple quick passes by Sanchez set up a 32 yard field goal for Nick Folk with 3 seconds left on the clock. He put it through the uprights, defeating the Colts and setting up another classic matchup next Sunday vs Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.

Bionic Commando Rearmed 2: GT Trailer

Im very excited to see what GRIN has cooked up for the second installment of the Bionic Commando ReArmed series. This is definitely going to be a day 1 purchase for me. Although very few people finished it, the original ReArmed game is one of the very best titles on XBLA, and in my opinion is one of the top 25 2D games ever.
