The Halo 4 finals take place in Johannesburg on February 9, and as you already know you could join us there. What you might not know though is that Microsoft will also have Gears of War: Judgement playable on the floor.
Epic Games, having owned a large stake of the development studio People Can Fly, has bought the studio completely. People Can Fly, developers of Bulletstorm and Gears of War: Judgment, have worked together with Epic Games on numerous occasions in the last decade, most noticeably on titles such as the PC version of Gears of War.
Its only been out for just over two weeks, but suffice to say, Gears of War 3 has been a smash hit with gamers worldwide. Even though its a bit on the pricy side, there’s no doubt that Epic is going to offload a whole heap of DLC with eager players, and now we have our first pack of digital content confirmed and on the way.
Here’s what you can expect to get for your 800 MS Points when the Horde Command Pack rolls around in November.
I was just browsing VG247 and saw an interview they had with Prototypeâ€™s developer about the game, while nothing really exciting was announced Tim Bennison did go on to say
â€œThe first time a player throws a corrupt Blackwatch soldier into the blades of an attack chopper, we think theyâ€™ll have a big smile on their face,â€
And yes I smiled thinking about that which is really bizarre if you think about it, we are looking forward to throwing someone into a spinning metal blade and this is okay?
I remember doing a GTA interview with YOU magazine and stating that I enjoy going home and chainsawing locusts in half to relax at night. Obviously the magazine twisted that and my mother was horrified but to be honest itâ€™s perfectly true isnâ€™t it?

[ Update no.3: We have received another Reply from Epic. It seems that spamming them will not do any good because MS generates the codes. It's still 5am in Redmond, so we will have to wait a little to get some answers but it seems like answers is what we will be getting.
Hooray for not being ignored! ]
[ Update no.2 : Mike Capps from Epic has replied! He say's the following:
"Hi nick. News to me, let me check!"
There may be hope yet! ]
[ Update: I have just emailed Mike Capps, the president of Epic Games to see if there is any sort of arrangement that can be made for South African gamers. Hopefully we will have a response soon with regards to the codes. ]
I really hope that I get proven wrong on this one because if I don't, it will be a pretty sad piece of news for us South Africans.
As you all know, a few South Africans have been able to get their hands on copies of Gears of War 2 a few days early. I got the chance to speak to someone who has already gotten a copy and has played a sneaky multiplayer session with a few other of the lucky folks who got it early as well.
The problem is that none of them could find the "Flashback Map Pack" code in their Gears of War 2 boxes.
Say it ain't so. More after the jump.
