Halo 4 and Halo Anniversary Announced

Microsoft's press conference reveals a double dose of Halo.

Today, Microsoft announced at their press conference that two Halo games are currently in the works, with neither being developed by series creators, Bungie Studios. Instead 343 Industries in conjunction with Microsoft Game Studios are developing the two titles, Halo Anniversary and Halo 4.

Halo Anniversary is the first of the two games and as the title implies, is a celebration of the ten year anniversary of the series. The game is an HD remake of the original title, Halo: Combat Evolved, and will feature both competitive and cooperative online play over Xbox Live. Other than a cleaned up presentation, the game will largely be the same title made available for Xbox a decade ago.

At the end of the conference, Halo 4 was briefly teased, but little information about the game was provided. It is confirmed to be the start of a new trilogy and like the original trilogy, it will feature Master Chief. As of right now, the game is slated for a Holiday 2012 release.

Final Fantasy V Review Rewind

There are several similarities between Final Fantasy V and its younger sibling, Final Fantasy III. Chiefly of which, both games stayed exclusively in Japan well after the series moved on to the PlayStation in the mid-90s. For a time, Square Enix (formally SquareSoft) was uncertain if western audiences would grasp the deeper gameplay mechanics that drove character growth. But after the global success of Final Fantasy VII, they decided it was time to start bridging the gap in sequels in the US lineup. As a result, Final Fantasy V was the first to be released as part of the Final Fantasy Anthology compilation on the PlayStation in 1999.
