Halo: Reach | Defiant Map Pack out now & our opinion on it

The new map pack for Halo: Reach is out now for the price of 800MS Points on Xbox LIVE.

The Defiant Map Pack introduces a total of three new battlefields – Condemned and Highlands – for competitive multiplayer and Unearthed – a brand new Firefight level.

We were fortunate enough to receive preview codes for the maps, but have decided against a full review of the DLC – mainly because we see no sense in commenting on maps that could not be fully enjoyed with one other person running around.

Gears of War 3 Beta dated and more Microsoft news

I’ll jump right in with the most important (I’m a fan, OK?) of the recent announcements at Microsoft’s San Francisco press event (invite still in the post chaps?…).

The Gears of War 3 public multiplayer kicks off mid-April giving players the chance to try out three new multiplayer modes on four new maps.  You can also help even decide which maps you would like to see in the beta by visiting the Gears of War Facebook page and voting on your favorites. Voting has started and ends on February 28.  I can see a lot of SA gamers outside their local retailer this morning (or awaiting their courier) for their copies of Bulletstorm…

Other news includes the date of Halo: Reach’s Defiant Map Pack, Fable III DLC and other (maybe) slightly less exciting stuff.
