This console version of Halo: Spartan Assault includes Operation Hydra, which was free DLC for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. The biggest addition are all new co-op missions that put players up against The Flood, armed with new weapons, abilities and upgrades. Of course, there will be new Achievements as well.

On Thursday July 18, it was announced at Comic-Con in San Diego that Halo: Spartan Assault would launch at 4:00 PM (PST). That’s 1:00 AM (GMT) on July 19, our local time in Amsterdam. So when we all got up in the morning to go to work on Friday, the game had launched.

Of course, this is a very exciting time for me and my colleagues, as reviews start popping up and people are talking about the game both online and offline. To celebrate, we ate a custom Halo: Spartan Assault cake made by my sister, based on the model of the grenade case as it appears in our game. Instead of grenades, a tablet with a very detailed Spartan on top of it was placed inside the case.

How I got my nickname

February 20, 2009 | Misc

Just to get me going in blogging and expanding my portfolio, I’ll share with you the history of the nickname Patt3rson. People ask me all the time where it comes from, because it’s not your average alias. And as a Dutch guy, it’s not likely it came from my last name.

It all began way before you would ever even need a nickname. MSN wasn’t widely used, consoles weren’t even able to go online yet and there was no reason you would use another name than your own, because people hadn’t discovered yet that they could be total assholes online while using a pseudonym. At that time, I made the first step towards my game related career by founding a simple and small website with previews and reviews, some special articles and the first walkthroughs I ever wrote. I brought some friends on board, who where just as experienced in writing as I was at that time, and our love for playing games got us going.
