Halo 4 info

"Halo 4 is the next blockbuster installment in the iconic franchise that’s shaped entertainment history and defined a decade of gaming. Set in the aftermath of Halo 3, Master Chief returns to confront his own destiny and face an ancient evil that threatens the fate of the entire universe. Halo 4 marks the start of a new trilogy that begins with its release in 2012."

- as seen on the official Halo site.

So... Halo 4!

Halo 4 is a continuation of the Halo franchise (set after being in space for a long time) and is the beginning of a new Halo trilogy named "The Reclaimer Trilogy". This new trilogy is designed to take players on a decade-long journey that involves a more in-depth look at the Forerunners along with looking at Master Chief's character and personality in greater depth.

Creative manager Josh Holmes stated at ""It plays like Halo, It sounds simple but that was really important to us." The panel refused to go on about the Story of the new trilogy however they did mention that "it will deal with the fate of John and Cortana. There's a lot of speculation about Cortana's mind state. There's a lot of relationship between those two characters. Character is something we're focusing on very strongly this time."

I've found a release date for Halo 4 (12/12/12) although i am not sure if it is reliable, but that's all we have right now so lets work with it! On the Wednesday of December 2012 i think that sales are going to shatter all gaming records due to the large amount of loyal fans following the halo franchise including myself.

Lord of the Rings online

The Lord of the Rings Online™ (LOTRO) is the award-winning online role-playing game set in J. R. R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth, the greatest fantasy world of all time. In LOTRO, you can explore the legendary world of The Lord of the Rings and create your own unique Middle-earth adventure. Join with the world’s largest fellowship of players to fight the ravenous hordes of the Dark Lord Sauron, and forge your own legend.

Character Customisation



There is a good amount of customisation you can do while creating your character. first of all you get to choose your race: Man, Hobbit, Elf and Dwarf. Second what type of warrior you want to be: Champion, Captain, Hunter, Lore-Master, Burgler, Guardian, Rune-Keeper, Warden and Minstrel. Thirdly you get to chance to appearance of your character from body size and hair colour to beards and the size of nose. You also get to select the location your character was born, the locations differ between different races.

The Storyline


The storyline of this also varies depending on your race at the beginning of the game until finally all 4 of the different races come together in Bree to assist Aragorn in the Prancing Pony. I don't want to talk to much about the storyline because i wouldn't want to ruin it for people about to try the game so lets move on.

Gameplay



If you have ever played other MMO games on your PC such as World of Warcraft and/or Rift then you should be able to catch onto the game relatively quickly. If you are new to these games and wanting to try them out don't worry about it because Lotro has a great tutorial system to show you the ropes in everything you need to know to kick some Orc ass!

Massively Multiplayer



Join millions of players in the world's largest fellowship of fans: a heroic force gathering on the edge of a blade to turn back the swelling shadow of the Dark Lord Sauron. Band together to fight, explore, forge your own legends, and make friends with the others who have heard the call of adventure and come to Middle-earth. A world of adventure, fellowship, and epic times is waiting for the best players around.


Monster Play / PVP



Monsterplay is available to players once they get a character to level 10. Monsterplayer allows you to jump into the Ettenmoors with a Monster of your choosing already at the maximum level. The Ettenmoors is where Monsters and People Fight one another (Player versus Player) to control points of the map. It is a never ending war but is extremely fun to do! You can enter the Ettenmoors with your Good characters once you hit a high enough level to fight off the monsters.

Free to Play


Yes, this game is Free to Play but you can also purchase it to have a larger access to better equipment, quests and locations. If it doesn't sound worth the $14.99 a month to play the game with extra things then just play it for free! Play the trail before judging this awesome game.

James Cameron's Avatar

Avatar is one of the best films I've ever seen!



Avatar the film (in my opinion) is one of the best films of 2009. honestly, i got shivers up my spine while watching it...

THATS HOW BLOODY AWESOME IT IS!



You really shouldn't watch this film on your computer until you've seen it at the cinema (EVEN BETTER ON 3-D!) or it will completely ruin the greatness of the film.

The graphics in this film are one of the best i've EVER seen. It really does make other great movie's graphics seem like a pile of my gran's ashes.... (Thats not a good thing!)



Also, i cant believe it cost 300 million just to make this film! i'm pretty sure that Avatar is now the most expensive movie of all time AND i think Avatar is the biggest 3-D live-action film ever.



Thank you James Cameron and all the great actors such as Sam Worthington - Jake Sully, Zoe Saldana - Neytiri, Sigourney Weaver - Dr. Grace Augustine and Stephen Lang - Colonel Miles Quaritch for the F***ING AWESOME FILM!
