Jason and Matt stop by the XNA's Indie Games booth to chat with Microsoft's Kathleen Sanders and we review the Fall's first blockbusters: Halo 3: ODST and Beatles Rock Band
Halo 3: ODST is a side-story placing you in the role role of an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper on a mission to find his scattered unit in the occupied city of New Mombasa--a change of pace from playing as a super powerful Spartan. Anthony Gallegos joins Matt to discuss whether or not change is a good thing and Matt explains why he'll be playing the new multiplayer mode, Firefight, more than Gears of War's Horde.
If you know us, you know that we don't go to an event without spending quality time with indie games and PAX was no exception. Matt and Jason had a chance to play a bunch of games from XNA's Dream Build Play contest, among others, and interview Microsoft's Kathleen Sanders. Quite a few of the games stood out and so Jason and Matt took their newly acquired free-time to reflect back on better times.
Not surprisingly, a bunch of people wanted to come over to join us in playing Beatles Rock Band. It's a loving tribute to an iconic bands with lots of great music. Dan 'Shoe' Hsu, Raychul Moore, Justin Haywald, and Jade Krauss rock out with Ryan and Jason and hang out to talk, and sometimes argue, about the pros and cons.
