Apple has released iOS 6.0.1 for compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices.  It is just a small update for iOS 6 and doesn’t really bring in any new features for the interface, just some important bug fixes.

The iOS 6.0.1 update is a 45MB download for iPhone users with iOS 6.0 installed.  You can install it through iTunes or the Automatic Update feature of iOS 6.  However, the iOS 6.0.1 update requires a minimum of 768 MB free space temporarily to perform the update without iTunes.  Once the update is completed the free space will be returned.

Halo 4 Spartan Ops Season 1 Trailer November 2, 2012

Halo 4 is launching with a lot more than just a single player campaign and a multiplayer mode, it’s also getting a full cooperative campaign the likes of which hasn’t been seen in quite some time.

The Spartan Ops campaign will be an entirely separate cooperative campaign where you will join friends of other Spartans to continue the story of Halo 4 beyond the single-player.  The game will only launch with a few episodes, but 343 and Microsoft have promised that more episodes will be coming for free in the weeks following the release of the game.  This is all leading up to the launch of Halo 5.  Yes, you read that right, there will be a Halo 5.

Halo 4 is coming November 6th, 2012.

Halo 4 Forward Unto Dawn Part 5 November 2, 2012

Its Friday, that means the fifth part in the live-action episodic Halo movie has been released today.  It’s all been leading up to the release of Halo 4, which is coming out on Election Day.

At gameXcess.net we have been discussing doing a review of this series for quite some time.  I believe that given the structure of the story, Forward Unto Dawn should be considered a movie, and not as an episodic series, and as such should be reviewed after all the parts have been released to the internet or the Director’s Cut was released to disc.  Once the Director’s Cut is released, it will be considered for review.

The full Director’s Cut of Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn is coming November 6th, 2012 with the Halo 4 Limited Edition.  It is also expected to get a release to Blu-Ray Disc in December, 2012.

A Letter From the Webmaster November 2, 2012

Maniac here.  My apologies for taking this long to get back to you guys, but like many of you my home was impacted by Hurricane Sandy.  While I have been perfectly fine and healthy since the storm passed, several of my home’s utilities were knocked offline during the storm and have only come online just within the last few minutes.

I did not want to post any information on the site about the event as I had no timeline for my utilities to be restored.  Rest assured that gamexcess.net is perfectly fine, and will continue to operate normally.  In fact, I shot a new site video during the outage, the first ever video game review gamexcess.net has ever done, and more content was designed during the outage.

So sit back, relax and enjoy.  We’re back.
