“Atari’s Centipede® is easy to learn, but the tension builds relentlessly as the game progresses. Destroy the Centipede as it moves faster and faster through a colorful mushroom field, as well as protect yourself from a deadly Flea and a ferocious Spider.

As with Centipede, Atari’s Millipede® is easy to learn, but the tension builds relentlessly as the game progresses. You’ll find many more bugs and the ability to start at higher levels.”

“Catan places the player in the role of colonists on the newly discovered imaginary island of the same name. Through strategy and trading, 3-4 players vie for control over the valuable territory and resources of this uncharted wilderness. With ten million copies already sold, Settlers of Catan is the rare board game that appeals to casual players as much as hardcore enthusiasts.”

In this weeks latest Bungie update, Bungie explains why some people are having trouble with downloading the new Halo 2 maps. There was a glitch in the billing system allowing some members to get the maps for free. This bug has been fixed. Bungie has also been busy testing the new save feature which will appear in the upcoming beta. Split-screen will also be available on the beta but only in two player form.

Bungie also dispelled the rumor that Halo 3 will be running at 1080p with 60fps, It would be hard to have the game run at that setting with all the action onscreen, but it will display at 1080p on the Xbox 360 Elite.

And lastly, Bungie reveals the control set-up for the beta.
