2012 was supposed to be the end of the world. Instead, it was the beginning of ours. Halo 4, despite being the seventh or eighth game in the Halo series depending on how you count them, was our first game. That is to say, our first-ever fully fledged title, built from the ground up creatively and technologically. So let me save you the trouble of trolling my statement: We have a lot to learn. We made a lot of mistakes. We can do better. And we know this, and we will. But I don’t want to spend the first moments of the year thinking about the negatives, because frankly, I am incredibly proud of both the team and the game that team created.

What do you think could be improved in Halo 4?

It’s not too far-fetched to assume a related video game is on the way when LEGO announces new licenses. We’ve been graced with two LEGO Batman games representing the DC half of the LEGO Super Heroes line and now it looks like “LEGO Marvel Super Heroes” is finally on the way, for just about every platform.

The search for meaning is a natural response to any tragedy, and the latest U.S. mass shooting is eliciting questions about, among other things, the potential role of violent video games. After all, with kids and increasingly teenagers spending so much time hammering away at simulated shooters, is it any wonder when they pick up actual guns? Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod lamented on Twitter, “In NFL post-game: an ad for shoot ‘em up video game. All for curbing weapons of war. But shouldn’t we also quit marketing murder as a game?”

Diablo III PVP Update

Well it looks like the Diablo III PvP has been delayed for a indeterminate amount of time. After 7 months it was definitely feeling like something was up  with it.

Hey everyone,

The development team has been working really hard on the features, content, and systems for PvP in Diablo III and I wanted to take some time to give an update on where were at.

Of course, our goal has been to release our Team Deathmatch mode as soon as possible, but we dont want to put anything out there before its ready. Right now, Team Deathmatch isnt yet where we want it to be, so I want to provide some insight into where we are at in the development process.
