Hey! Look! Listen!

HLLfinal

BioShock 2 and the makings of a flu virus may have kept Hey! Look! Listen! at bay earlier in the week, but the Friday edition is now present and accounted for.

For what it’s worth, anyway. Unless you’re a Microsoft fanboy, this week hasn’t seen many interesting announcements or news items. If you are a Microsoft fanboy, it might be worth it to check out coverage of the recent X10 event, which includes first looks at both Hal0: Reach and Fable III.

Unfortunately, I don’t really care about either of those franchises. Nonetheless, let us press onward and see what we have.

Halo: Reach Impressions Hit the Interwebs

It’s weird, but I actually read 1UP and IGN’s impressions for the recently-displayed Halo: Reach, and I was intrigued. I’ve never really enjoyed a Halo game before, but with Reach it sounds like Bungie is pulling out all the stops. Good on them, since it will (supposedly) be the final Bungie-developed Halo title. Read IGN’s impressions here and 1UP’s here.

New God of War III Trailer Brutalizes the Interwebs

And it’s everything you’d expect from a God of War trailer, I’ll say that much. Badass dialog, badass fight scenes, badass music, all made more badass by the graphical power of the PlayStation 3. I really should get around to finishing God of War II sometime.

By the way, God of War III has been reviewed by the UK’s Official PlayStation Magazine. They gave it a 9/10, and apparently it only missed a 10/10 due to the “familiarity of the core gameplay.”

“But it’s definitely the biggest,” says reviewer Nathan Ditum,  ”and if this is the finale (and the corpses littering the stage by the end of the game suggest it might be), then God of War III gives PlayStation’s toughest hero the send-off he deserves.”

Sweet. (VG247)

Alan Wake Boxart Amuses the Interwebs

Alan Wake is the only 360 exclusive to pique my interest in some time. But then, how could it not? It’s a Psychological Action Thriller!alanwakeboxart

Alan Wake Trailer Mystifies the Interwebs

Seriously, though, Alan Wake looks pretty damn good. This new trailer from the aforemention X10 event proves it.

And… we’re done! Man, what a boring news week. I guess everyone’s been too busy playing BioShock 2 to make any big announcements, or do anything newsworthy. But hey, who can blame them? Not I, not I.

’till next time, readers. Look for something from me tomorrow.

    - It seems like Bungie is starting to get Kojima syndrome. I’m pretty sure I’ve heard “this is our last Halo game” with every release since Halo 3 from somewhere inside Bungie.

    - I’d love it if, after killing off everybody remotely related to the Greek pantheon in GoW III, they find an excuse to transport Kratos to the norse pantheon and start all over again for IV.

    - The Alan Wake box art reminds me of the box art for The Thing.
