Visiting Spartan Games

We got to play with the new Leviathan, which are coming out next week (25th March)

We spent a fantastic day at Spartan Games yesterday.

Though we didn’t get to play the new Halo spaceship combat game (everything wasn’t quite ready) we did et to have some great chats, see some really nice models, preview some new releases and play some games of Firestorm Planetfall – which, BTW, is really good.

Unfortunately, the one thing we didn’t do is get to record any audio, though as it turns out we couldn’t release much of what we may have recorded, since its information about stuff that hasn’t been announced yet.

I did manage to take some shots of the Halo ship models

We also got to see some of the prototype models and renders for the Halo Ground Combat game. No pics I’m afraid as this is still under wraps (we can’t even talk about model scale) but suffice it to say these are stunningly good, and have immediately been put on our ‘must buy’ list.

As mentioned, we did get to play some games of Firestorm Planetfall

Many thanks to everyone at Spartan Games for a great day out- Mike and I will be recording a show about the day and reviewing Firestorm Planetfall shortly.
