Halo and Avatar headline Comic-Con '09 game news

Halo film officially dead, Avatar: The Game looks revolutionary

Although it wasn't the most exciting Comic-Con in terms of game news, there was still plenty to talk about by the end of its run. Most notably, two Halo related stories emerged that were a little disheartening, as Halo Reach was revealed to be Bungie's last Halo game and Peter Jackson announced that Halo Chronicles was "no longer happening." But, amongst the sad news, if shooting aliens on other worlds is your kind of thing, James Cameron's Avatar: The Game looks like it could be a big hit, if not downright revolutionary due to the 3D element.

Below you'll find some of GamePro's coverage of Comic-Con '09, along with some of the breaking news that popped up during the event.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
