Yes, but also the older ones like Fall of Reach and Ghosts of Onyx.

343 definitely seems invested in this, which is nice. Every MP map is quality unlike Reach and some Halo 3 maps. I just wish they added a few more to the rotation.

As for the books, I didn't really get any Reach information aside from John flashing back at times. I need to read Ghosts of Onyx to find out more about the shield world. I'm curious as to why the Spartan III program was short lived. Spartan IV program came out like 5 years later it seems.

Cryptum and the sequels seem like an interesting read. Forerunner stuff is really cool.

Ghost of Onyx covers the shield world and the Spartan III program.

PSN went through an upgrade. Not sure if I like it or not.

JMW what do you think of it?

Yeah, I went to buy some of the Fringe episodes my DVR deleted for space and Assassin's Creed 3 and noticed it. It's different, and I thought the former was fine. But it's definitely more polished, and there are some improvements. It takes some adjusting, the layout is dramatically different. I don't like all the splitting of stuff. TV shows has what's popular, what's new, collections, etc. Too much when before you basically had top 10s for popularity and otherwise went straight to a list of everything available. Otherwise it's fine.

Amazon had a PS3 bundle yesterday that included Uncharted 1 and 2 as well as Infamous for 200$... It was the bundle they sold on Black Friday. I saw it appear and was immediately talking to myself about buying it... 5 minutes later the deal expired. I'm wondering if it was a mistake or if it was a first come first serve kind of thing... Anyway I blew it. I wanted to get a PS3 so I could play The Show as well as own a Blu Ray player. I'm not mad at myself, though, since I feel like there will be holiday bundles coming up that I can purchase.

I really want to play The Show.

The campaign doesn't stack up to the standard set by previous games, but I love what 343 did with Halo 4 War Games.

New Humble Indie Bundle:

Quote
Pay what you want for The Binding of Isaac (and its DLC, Wrath of the Lamb!), Closure, Shank 2, Snapshot, and the documentary feature film Indie Game: The Movie! If you choose to pay more than the average, you’ll also get Legend of Grimrock and Dungeon Defenders (with a ton of DLC)! This bundle also comes with many fantastic soundtracks in lossless (FLAC) and MP3!

I've been interested in The Binding of Issac and Legend of Grimrock, so I'll be picking it up.

Anyone interested in Awesomenauts on PC?  I picked up a 3 pack on flash sale for $6 and may have an extra copy.  I gave the other copy to The Chief.  I was sold by the WTF Is? video by TotalBiscuit and the steam trailer:

Awesomenauts: PC Release Trailer


It's a 2D MOBA game.  Pretty fun.
