Dark Horse's Halo Omnibus Launches Tomorrow

A new Halo game is in the works, but Master Chief likely won't be returning to video games any time soon. If you need your fix of the green armor, Dark Horse is launching a new Halo Omnibus tomorrow that features chapters written by Halo 4's senior writer Chris Schlerf, and Halo 5: Guardians' lead writer Brian Reed.

This monstrous 368-page paperback book reprints the complete three-issue series of Halo: Initiation and the first 12 issues of Halo: Escalation. Readers will also find a cover gallery and a variety of process pages. Along with Reed and Schlerf, the book features writing by Duffy Boudreau, and art by Sergio Arino, Ricardo Sanchez, and Douglas Franchin. The cover is illustrated by Jean-Sebastein Rossbach.

Halo: Escalation is set after the events of Halo 4, and follows the crew of the UNSC Infinity as they try to foster peace between the Elites and Brutes. What they soon find, however, is a long-lost UNSC asset is in enemy hands. Halo: Initiation tells the story of Sarah Palmer before she wore Spartan armor.

Minecraft: Story Mode Launches On Netflix

Minecraft: Story Mode is available now on Netflix. The episodic adventure game from Telltale Games originally released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android in 2015, with later releases on Switch, Wii U, and Apple TV.

Despite Netflix being a service dedicated to streaming video, the title still retains choice-driven elements. Depending on which device you're playing it on, the controls for the Netflix version change slightly. If you're on a computer, you use the mouse cursor to select an option when choices pop up, while devices with touchscreens have you tap on your choice. Meanwhile, if you play on consoles, you use the d-pad to highlight an option and a face button to select it. You can still select if you want the main character, Jesse, to be male or female, though it appears that you no longer choose skin tone.

Himura Kenshin and Makoto Shishio Cross Swords In New Jump Force Trailer

Himura Kenshin and Makoto Shishio Cross Swords In New Jump Force Trailer

The latest Jump Force trailer has revealed the character models and attacks for their new additions to the Shonen Jump brawler. Last week Bandai Namco announced that characters from the anime/manga Rurouni Kenshin would be joining the roster. The new trailer shows off the sword-based attacks of protagonist Himura Kenshin and Kyoto arc antagonist, Makoto Shishio.

Released as a manga in 1994, the story of Rurouni Kenshin follows Kenshin, a former assassin who in later life swears off his murderous past and becomes a wandering swordsman who pursues justice without taking lives. To do so he has the lethal edge of his katana turned inward making killing with it practically impossible. The antagonist Makoto Shishio, was likewise an assassin before being burned alive by the government, forcing him to adopt his covered-in-bandages look.

The trailer seems to give us a glimpse of Shishio's fiery finishing move, as well as Kenshin's ultimate slice among other moves.
