‘Halo: Reach’ review has landed

So I spent the weekend playing “Halo: Reach” and I have to say I’m really, really impressed. How impressed, you ask? Click here to read my full review over at the Video Games section and find out. 

In their final go-round with the IP, the developers at Bungie definitely stepped up and delivered an experience that “Halo” fans everywhere should love. New caretakers 343 Studios will certainly have its work cut out for it when it comes time to  follow up “Halo: Reach.” The bar has most certainly been raised.

‘Duke Nukem Forever’ lives

The long-talked about yet seldom-seen “Duke Nukem Forever” is real — and it’s scheduled to be released next year by 2K.

Gearbox Studios, who most recently scored a big hit with “Borderlands,” is putting the final touches on the game, which is being demoed at this week’s Penny Arcade Expo.

“Duke Nukem Forever” is being developed for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
