10 Things you need to know from X10

 

I am in San Francisco today where we are hosting our X10 media event. This invite only event gives our media friends the chance to hear some news, get updates on some of the upcoming games and (more importantly) get hands on time with some of the titles.

 

Here, in no specific order, are 10 things you need to know coming out of X10 today:

  • The Halo Reach multiplayer beta will kick off on May 3. You will be able to access the beta via the Halo 3: ODST game disc.
  • Dead Rising 2 will release in North America on Aug. 31, Japan on Sept. 2 and Europe on Sept. 3.
  • Dead Rising: CASE ZERO an exclusive download only on Xbox LIVE, will launch prior to the full game and provide a playable prologue that bridges the story between the two titles.
  • Alan Wake will launch May 18 in North America and May 21 in Europe. Players can pre-order the title to receive the Bright Falls Bonus Pack, which includes exclusive content like Avatar gear, an Xbox LIVE theme, and a “making of” video.

    lol@more dates for games that were suppose to come out years ago.

    thats the best thing about Gamefly, they post the actual release dates when they’re final, till then the game stays TBA, no hype no disappointment no crap.

    It’s okay but, I havent played the MP portion because nobody has it. Trying to play the three part story in order has me jumping from alien to marine to predator. It’s nothing new that we haven’t already in a FPS.

    Just pre-ordered the FF XIII Super Elite just because 1) It’s a white Elite, 2) Exclusive Faceplate + Avatar items.

    Also looking forward to Perfect Dark after watching the X10 video – reminds me so much of Goldeneye – I guess it’s the closest thing we’re ever gonna get to it.

    Perfect Dark looks really ugly and Allen Wake looks like Alone in the Dark. No Buy for me! But i cant wait for Fable and Dead Rising 2

    As long as it’s a 150w Jasper, it’s fine by me.

    I was asking that because Square has yet to announce a special edition for us US gamers, so I was led to believe that that’s actually happened.

    Star Ocean is another favorite series of mine, and we didn’t get a limited edition like EU did…..

    I thought Perfect Dark for the 64 was awesome. Had so many options/features over Golden Eye. Bots being one. Cloaking, firing remote controlled missles then stalking your victive. Also tagging someone with remote mines and then detonating at your leisure. Fun Fun

    The Final Fantasy Console excited me the most to be honest not sure why though because its has a cool LE box and is in White which is about time for Elite. Would probably bought this if I had no console instead got the MW2 LE console. I recommend them the Jaspers are great plus there a good deal 250GB, game, two controllers just no darn HDMI cable.

    As far as I’m concerned the only thing you need to know is that there is a Transformers War for Cybertron video @ marketplace. You’ve to be living under a rock to ignore all those stuff about dead rising 2 and FFwhatever games. Loved the past-gen cartoon based transformers game.

    Toy Soldiers:

    It looks like Battlefield 1942 meets Counter-Strike with toy soldiers. The graphics are sweet. I just don’t know how many people will buy another version of BF1942 for 1200 MSP. The gameplay better be innovative with great word of mouth or this could die quickly.
