Halo Retrospective Part 5 Halo 3 ODST

Our Halo Retrospective continues today with one of the more forgotten games in the series. If you love Halo then be sure to look at our modded Xbox One controllers and our modded Xbox 360 controllers which will make you a more powerful Spartan than you could ever imagine.

Halo 3 ODST (2009) Xbox 360

Halo 3 ODST was the second Halo game to be released in 2009. This was talked about for a very long time before release and at first, it was going to be a DLC add on for Halo 3. The game progressed so much that it had to be released as its very own title, a title that would flesh out the Halo story a little bit.

Halo 3 ODST is actually set during the events of Halo 2 in the city of New Mombasa. You do not play as Master Chief, but as an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper simply known as the rookie. You awake hours after being deployed in the city and in trying to figure out what happened to the rest of your squad you are thrown into the middle of a huge battle. One of the cool things about Halo 3 ODST is the way that when you find a piece of evidence that lets you know what happened to a member of your squad, you actually get to play as them in a flashback mission which fleshes out the story.

Playing as an ODST was a bit different than playing as Master Chief, but for the most part, Halo fans were very happy with what Bungie did with the story. Halo 3 ODST also had a multiplayer disc which featured the maps and modes from Halo 3 as well as a new survival based mode called Firefight.

Halo 3 ODST is a pretty fun game and an interesting side step for the series.

The History Of Gears Of War 4
The History Of Gears Of War 4

Join us for our last part of our History Of Gears Of War series! This game is perfect for our modded Xbox One controllers especially when it comes to taking down horde after horde!

Gears Of War 4 (2016) Xbox One

Gears Of War 4 was the series debut on Xbox One and as of right now it is one of the biggest exclusives that the Xbox One has. This is not a spin off game, it is a follow on from Gears Of War 3, all be it 25 years later.

The Locust and the Lambent threat have been over for years and mankind is living in huge walled cities and is living under martial law from the COG. Some humans rejected the COG’s new rules and live outside of these areas. The game is centered around the son of Marcus Fenix, JD and his squad. The Locust is not quite as dead as humanity thought add to this these huge wind flares (which boast some of the most impressive effects on the Xbox One) and humanity could very well be wiped off the face of Sera!

Gears Of War 4 is a fantastic game. While it introduces us to a new cast of characters. Marcus, Cole, and Baird all come along for the ride. It is the perfect balancing of mixing old with new and it was done very, very well. The game did have a cliffhanger ending, but it only made you want to experience more from this new group of heroes.

The team behind the game, The Coalition spent a lot of time making sure the multiplayer was just right and many gamers agreed that they did a fantastic job and even a year later, Gears Of War 4 has a strong multiplayer community on Xbox Live.

Gears Of War 4 has certainly opened up the series and we are super excited to see what JD and his team are up against next.

The History Of Gears Of War Judgement
The History Of Gears Of War Judgement

You know that when it comes to shooters our modded Xbox One controllers and our modded Xbox 360 controllers can really give you an edge, especially in a game as hard hitting as Gears Of War!

Gears Of War Judgement (2013) Xbox 360

Gears Of War fans did not have to wait long for more Gears Of War action, only this time it would not be about Marcus Fenix!

Gears Of War Judgement was a prequel and it focused on Baird. Who along with Cole Train and two new characters, Sofia Hendrik and Garron Paduk who made up Kilo Squad. The story is pretty interesting in that Baird is actually on trial and the game is told through a series of flashbacks. It was pretty well done, but at the time and especially after the roller coaster that was Gears Of War 3, the story in its narrative and length were not as favorably reviewed as the other games that had come before it.

Each mission has a harder option you can select where you will have some kind of handicap be it having to use a certain weapon or a time limit. This was fun and as each level would see you get a score at the end it did help the replayability.

Multiplayer mode in Gears Of War Judgement was a ton of fun and while it did not reinvent the wheel. OverRun and Free For All as the new game modes were very well received and a nice addition to the returning game modes.

Gears Of War Judgement may not be the most popular game in the series, but it still sold over a million copies and many hard core Gears fans loved being able to delve deeper into the lore.

The History Of Gears Of War 3
The History Of Gears Of War 3

Take down the Horde of Locusts coming your way with our awesome modded Xbox One controllers and our modded Xbox 360 controllers as you look back on the history of Gears Of War with us.

Gears Of War 3 (2011) Xbox 360

Gears Of War 3 was the what many of us thought was the end of this fantastic series and it was the end of this chapter in the story. To say that Gears Of War 3 has an epic story is a huge understatement. It is not just the Locust that is a threat, but the Lambent infection that is spreading all over Sera.

Now, this is a big, loud and bicep pumping action story, but the characters are so well written and voice acted that you really do care about them. You are on a quest to find Marcus Fenix’s father who may hold the key to stop the Locust once and for all. One thing that has to be said is that despite being a story about a macho bunch of guys, Gears Of War 3 has one of the most heart breaking moments of any action game.

The power of the Xbox 360 was used really well to bring this story to life with incredible presentation and set pieces that really did blow us all away and make us feel like we were playing a part in a movie.

As well as having a great campaign, Gears Of War 3 also had a huge selection of multiplayer modes. It was by far one of the most played games on the Xbox 360 and something many people have fond memories of. Epic kept many of the popular game modes all the while adding new ones, new weapons, and more customization options.

Gears Of War 3 is a masterpiece and at the time, we felt it was a great send off for Marcus Fenix and the rest of his squad.

The History Of Battlefield Part 10 Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam
The History Of Battlefield Part 10: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam

Battlefield is one of the most popular FPS games in the world and a game that our modded PS4 controllers, modded Xbox One controllers and modded PC controllers make even better. Lock and load as we look at the next installment of our history of Battlefield series.

Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam (2010) PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC

Ok so this is not a whole new game, but rather an expansion of Battlefield Bad Company 2, but many people agree that Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam is one of the best expansions to a first person shooter of all time. It was released in December 2010 and interestingly could be bought in a store in an actual game box. The thing was there was no disc in the box, only a download code!

Set during the Vietnam War, Dice absolutely nailed it. The game featured fun, close quarters combat across five brand new maps with lots of new weapons and 6 new vehicles. They really captured the time period very well and the expansion was a huge success.

Dice really went all out for this. They recorded a ton of new dialogue for the expansion, but best of all was the soundtrack. Dice went above and beyond with the soundtrack securing all kinds of 1960’s music, it is estimated there are around two hours of music in the game! It really does help add to the experience and you could say that even today, Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam has the best soundtrack of any game in the Battlefield series.

Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam is a fantastic expansion with many people at the time actually preferring this to the original Bad Company 2 multiplayer!

The History Of Battlefield Part 9 Battlefield Bad Company 2
The History Of Battlefield Part 9: Battlefield Bad Company 2

Our modded PS4 controllers, modded Xbox One controllers and modded PC controllers work awesome with the Battlefield games and today we are looking at another gem from the Battlefield franchise.

Battlefield Bad Company 2 (2010) PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC

EA Dice released Battlefield Bad Company 2 in 2010. The way to think of the game is a squad based shooter that is set in the modern day. EA had huge success with the first Bad Company so this game was highly anticipated.

Even after what happened in the first game it is realized that only this team of bad asses can go in and get the job done when a special operative is trapped behind enemy lines. What starts as a search and rescue mission quickly gets out of control and the story takes many twists and turns. The story in Battlefield Bad Company 2 was very well received and many said at the time it was the best in a first person shooter. Each mission had different objectives and you really felt like it was you against the world.

Multiplayer was a ton of fun and new copies of the game came with a VIP pass that would allow access to future DLC. This was a way that EA felt they could combat people buying their games used. Conquest, Rush, Squad Rush and Squad Deathmatch are the four game modes that were included in multiplayer and the squad based gameplay of Battlefield really came into its own and it was one of the most played games of 2010 across all platforms.

The History Of Battlefield Part 8: Battlefield 1943
The History Of Battlefield Part 8: Battlefield 1943

We are back with another installment in our history of Battlefield series! A series of games that you can really dominate if you check out our modded PS4 controllers, modded Xbox One controllers and modded PC controllers.

Battlefield 1943 (2009) PlayStation 3, Xbox 360

The second Battlefield game released in 2009 was the downloadable game, Battlefield 1943 for the Xbox 360 and PS3, a PC version as planned, but was canceled. This at the time was the most popular downloaded game ever!

Players would be either part of the US Marine Corps or the Imperial Japanese Navy. Battlefield 1943 once again featured conquest mode where players would have to battle it out, work as a team and really utilize the class they are playing as to help their squad achieve victory. Once players reached 43 million kills in conquest mode, EA released a new mode called, Air Superiority.

One of the things that made Battlefield 1943 so much fun was that while it felt like a Battlefield game, DICE and EA really streamlined it. There were only three classes and there were only four vehicles. But rather than making the game feel limited, it made it feel must more straightforward and easy to jump into. We would bet that Battlefield 1943 for many people was what hooked them on the series as it was so easy to get into.

Battlefield 1943 was a huge hit and it was actually such a huge hit that in the early days of the game, the servers struggled to keep up with the demand. In 2009 it was the biggest selling downloadable game on Xbox Live and even now many Battlefield fans have fond memories of this game.

The History Of Battlefield Part 7: Battlefield Heroes

The History Of Battlefield Part 7: Battlefield Heroes

Our modded PS4 controllers, modded Xbox One controllers and modded PC controllers are the best way to experience Battlefield 1, but before that see just how the Battlefield series became as big as it is today with our history of Battlefield series.

Battlefield Heroes (2009) PC

2009 would see two Battlefield games released, the first one Battlefield Heroes was unlike anything else in the Battlefield series. This was aimed at a more casual audience and EA hoped that the ease of access and the fact it was free to play would result in bringing more people over to the Battlefield universe. This sounds a great idea in theory, but they also decided to make the game 3rd person!

Despite being in 3rd person, Battlefield Heroes features a kind of conquest mode. The idea is that each time has a set number of lives and flags. The idea is to drain the other team of all their lives while having more flags for your team. The class system from Battlefield was still here all be it in a more simplified and streamlined manner and you could still use vehicles during combat.

The games free to play model started out fair enough with players willing to put the time in actually being able to progress pretty far. But EA got a little greedy and changed the pricing structure of the game. So much that unless you were willing to spend hours and hours, grinding away, you had no choice but to spend real money in order to get better equipment. Despite this by the time EA closed the Battlefield Heroes servers in 215, around 10 million people had played the game.

Battlefield Heroes was an interesting idea and as it lasted so long, people were clearly into it. Perhaps had EA not been so greedy with the pricing model, it could have been even more popular?
