Halo Reach Has Gone Gold

Bungie has announced that their beloved Halo franchise’s latest installment has been finished and has gone gold. “Going gold” means that a game’s development process has been completed.

A multiplayer beta was offered to gamers who purchased a copy of Halo 3: ODST to help Bungie sort out bugs and tweak gameplay online. This beta was shortlived, however but was extended for a few days to allow players more time to access the beta.

Reach will feature multiplayer support via Xbox Live, System Link, and Split screen. Reach features “Loadouts”, a feature that allows players to pick a predefined choice of weaponry at spawn. The veto system has been improved, allowing players to vote for their preferred map and game mode out of a few choices. In order to give multiplayer a longer lasting appeal, players are now rewarded with “credits”, which players can spend on aesthetic armor customizations.

Halo Reach will release worldwide on September 14 and in Japan on September 15.

Tired of going to the store to get those Microsoft Points for that new Xbox Live Arcade game? Want to renew your Xbox Live subscription without making a trip to the game store? Well, suffer no longer.

Amazon is now selling Xbox Live game codes on their website digitally. Supposedly, they are NOT charging tax on each purchase, making this much more worth while.

Head on over today to pick one up.

Metallica LIVE at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Hey all. After an extensively long break, we’re back and better than ever. Lots of new blog posts to come in the next few days so stay tuned.


Hey guys! I’m going to show you how I got free Xbox Live subscription emailed to me completely free without using a credit card. You can use this method to get Wii points, Nexon cash and iTunes credits too!

How does this work and is this legal?
When you buy an Xbox Live Points card you just enter the code and Microsoft credits you with the points right? Well, if you follow the directions below there’s a site that will EMAIL these codes to you! They buy the codes from Microsoft (or whoever, depending if u get Wii points, NX cash, iTunes credits etc.) and they get paid by the sponsors that advertise on the site. So yes, this is 100% legit and legal. Cool huh?

The only downside is you need to be from USA, Canada, UK or Australia (that’s just how the advertisers work).

OK what do I need to do?
First thing you need to do is get a “junk” email account. Since you’re going to be getting a lot of junk mail you’re not going to want it all going to your real email address, so this is what this new email account will be used for.

Step 1: Sign Up

Go to http://www.rewards1.com/index.php?referrer_id=92042 and sign up.

Once you get there click SIGN UP on the menu bar on the left and fill out your information.

They will ask you for your email. I recommend you give them your real one because this is where they will email your Xbox Live code to. If you give them your spam one you might accidentally delete it. The site doesn’t spam you its all the offers you will be doing that send the junk email.

They also ask for your address. Don’t worry too much about this all they need your address for is to mail you prizes.

After you signup they will send you a confirmation link to your email address you entered. Click the link and you’re done. The email should come pretty quick (usually instantly). And make sure you check your spam folders.

Step 2: Complete Offers

Once inside you can check out the prize list. You’ll see the Xbox Live 1600 points card is 20 points – basically 1 point is 1 dollar. You earn points by completing offers and you should be able to get 20 points in about an hour or two.

To earn points click on “Available Offers”. There you will see a whole list of offers and how many points you’ll get if you complete that offer. When filling out an offer you don’t have to give your real home address or phone number. And make sure you use your spam email account because believe me you will be spammed. Also, be sure to check your email occasionally for those offers that require email confirmation otherwise you won’t get credited for completing the offer properly.

NOTE: The higher paying offers generally require a credit card and may charge you a few dollars (usually for shipping and handling). Basically you’re spending a few dollars to get 15-30 points. You see where I’m going with this. If you do enough credit card offers you can pretty much get an Xbox 360 Console (retails $350) for $50-60. (I’m actually in the middle of working my way towards one myself. I’ll write an article detailing how to do this later if enough people want)

Here are a few tips for filling out offers:
1. Read the offer carefully so you know exactly what to do to get the points.
2. Delete cookies before every offer
3. Complete offer with realistic information
4. Use a browser that accepts cookies and turn your security down
5. Let each page load completely

Also remember that even though most of the time you’ll get the points 5-10 minutes after completing the offer, some may take up to a day or more (depending on the offer). So don’t worry if you don’t see the points just keep going they will appear if you’ve done everything correctly.

Step 3: Claim Your Prize

After you have enough points you can now go to “Available Prizes” and see what you can cash those points in for. This is the fun part. =)

They have a ton of prizes. You’ll see stuff like consoles (Xbox, PS3, Wii), video games, iPods, etc. The Xbox Live cards are in the “Xbox” section and will be emailed to you. Physical prizes like iPods and video games will deliver so make sure your address is correct before you claim a prize that requires shipping.

Also, something many people don’t realize is that if you don’t see anything you like you can actually send a request for a custom prize. Just send support a ticket with a link to what you want from amazon.com and they’ll let you know how many points you’ll need. Basically it will be a point for every dollar.
So enjoy your Free MS Points, Free 1600 MS Points, Free 1600 Microsoft Points, Free Wii Points, Free GTA 4, Gears of War 2, Halo 3, or whatever you want from rewards 1
