New Cinematic Trailer for Fan-Made Halo PC Game


The world of video game fan projects never ceases to amaze, as gamers everywhere continue to show-off their creativity and imagination by developing the kind of experiences that many of us wish would get an official release.

The latest in this long line of “I can’t believe someone is doing that” projects is called Installation 01, and it intends to give PC players everywhere a proper modern-day Halo multiplayer experience to call their own. You can check out this project’s progress in the developer diary video below:

Installation 01 is currently being developed by a group of 30 fans with various talents that intend for their game to be a largely unique experience in the style of previous Halo titles rather than a direct port of those games.

As part of their compliance with the content usage rules set forth by Microsoft, the Installation 01 team is developing nearly everything in the game (including assets that were previously included in Halo games) from scratch. That means that every character, every animation, every level, and every weapon has been hand-designed by the team. While much of the game is still made to resemble elements of the Halo franchise, the developers are also working on unique levels and weapons that will be exclusive to this release.

By going to such lengths to create everything themselves, the hope is that Microsoft will not shut down the game such as how Nintendo has shut down a few recent fan projects based on their properties. Given the sheer amount of work that appears to have gone into the project (it’s even set to feature its own level creation toolset), it certainly would be disappointing if this was ruled to be a license violation, especially since there have been no talks of porting the Halo franchise to PC since the release of Halo 2 for Windows in 2007.

The group behind this project have made some incredible progress since we last checked in. It’s clear that there’s still a ways to go before its completed, but the Installation 01 developers certainly prove their resolve in this Q&A video about the project:

If that’s not enough to convince you that the team behind this project is dedicated to bringing a complete Halo experience to PC users everywhere, then perhaps this impressive homemade cinematic trailer for Installation 01 may just get the job done with its look at how visceral classic Halobattles can get.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Gameplay Trailer Confirms Release Date: Bethesda at E3 2017

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is the next entry in the Wolfenstein franchise, Bethesda revealed the game with a bombastic trailer that showed off generous amounts of gameplay including dual weapon wielding and a Nazi-occupied America as previous leaks have suggested.

“An exhilarating adventure brought to life by the industry-leading id Tech 6, Wolfenstein II sends players to Nazi-controlled America on a mission to recruit the boldest resistance leaders left. Fight the Nazis in iconic locations such as small-town Roswell, New Mexico, the flooded streets of New Orleans, and a post-nuclear Manhattan. Equip an arsenal of badass guns, and unleash new abilities to blast your way through legions of advanced Nazi soldiers, cyborgs, and uber soldiers in this definitive first-person shooter,” reads the trailer’s description.
In the run up to Bethesda’s E3 2017 event, Amazon Germany had put up a listing for the game which was then removed. Spotted by members of popular gaming forum NeoGAF, it suggests that Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus has a release date of October 27 this year.

Cleverly disguised at Bethesda’s E3 2016 conference, Wolfenstein 2 : New Colossus takes place in Nazi-occupied America. Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is developed by Machine Games – the studio behind the excellent Wolfenstein: The New Order and Wolfenstein: The Old Blood.


Warren Mayor Fouts proposes to rid city of trailer park problem


– The Mayor of Warren is proposing a new ordinance that would give the city the power to force mobile home owners to clean up problems.

Jim Fouts said that many trailer parks in his city are filled with rats, roaches, and prostitutes. He says that, right now, there’s nothing he can do to clean it up. So he’s proposing action.

“We are going to go in front of the mobile park commission and present them with our ordinance to declare this a nuisance abatement and clean it up,” Fouts said.

Warren is proposing an ordinance that would allow the city to force owners to clean it up. However, the ordinance must be approved by the State’s Manufactured Housing Commission , and the mayor says a majority of the members are trailer park owners.

“These are the kind of rules that exist in no man’s land. No one should have to put up with this.  But right now they exist in their own rules and that’s wrong,” Fouts said.

One of those problematic parks he points to is Continental Community. It’s near Eight Mile between Ryan and Dequindre and he’s not the only one who wants it cleaned up. Louise McMurdy has lived in the park for 17 years and thinks a clean up will do more than just make it look nice.

“Yeah they should clean it up, maybe they’ll get more people in here if it looks better,” McMurdy said.Image result for Warren Mayor Fouts proposes to rid city of trailer park problem

She’s not alone. Other residents claim there’s a motorcycle gang in the area and they hear gunshots a lot.

Isaac Freeman says he’s more concerned about blight than drugs and prostitution.

“I get along with everyone. I like to drink, I’m an alcoholic, but other than that…” Freeman said.

Fouts joined FOX 2 on the tour and says that people like Freeman and McMurdy shouldn’t have to live this way.

“Residents like this gentlemen have a right to live in a park that’s not a cesspool for various types of things like drugs and prostitutes,” Fouts said.

FOX 2 talked to the park manager who said she’s aware of problems in the park and is making an effort to try and solve them. She said she was unaware of the proposed ordinance.
