The Surprising Twists of Red vs Blue

August 26th, 2015 by halo@bungie.org
Really not doing very well at consistent reporting, but hey... it's summer! Three weeks ago, we mentioned that Rooster Teeth had released Red vs Blue Season 13 Episode 15 - 'Armonia, Part One'. Since then, they've released Armonia, Part Two (Doyle acts in a surprising manner), All or Nothing (Locus shows a surprising level of morality), and Great Destroyers (knives provide some surprises). Things are really heating up - just two more episodes! (There was also a PSA - this one should help you narrow down the choices for the next movie to watch.) Go catch up!(Louis Wu 06:26:24 UTC)

Our RTX experience this year was nothing short of extraordinary as we celebrated our 10 year anniversary of the show.  In addition to our episode 500 panel, we hosted a reunion party for all of our fans who attended RTX.  We had some awesome people come by and game away a lot of Halo swag.  We did get to see the show floor and attend a few other panels while we were there, but admittedly, this year was all about our anniversary.  We can’t thank everyone enough who helped get us here during our 10 year journey.

Canon Fodder – Jurassic Ark

August 21st, 2015 by halo@bungie.org
The first GrimBrother stopped by our forums again this week with another piece of fodder for you canon lovers. This week it's all about the novel 'Halo: Hunters In The Dark', but don't let that stop you from reading this if you've yet to pick up the book (which you should buy if you haven't)! There's plenty on the new characters in the novel, an interesting look at the wildlife mentioned in the book and an interview with the writer himself, Peter David. Go give it a read on HaloWaypoint when you get the chance!(MacGyver10 21:23:06 UTC)

Eric Nylund, Amazon and No Correlation

August 21st, 2015 by halo@bungie.org
With the recent article in the New York Times about the reported working conditions at Amazon, I guess many in the games industry did a bit more Googling than they normally do. While Eric Nylund (largely known around these parts for penning 'The Fall of Reach') left Amazon in July of this year, Gamespot, IGN and others are reporting it this week as news. Eric posted on his blog that there is no correlation between the New York Times article and his leaving the Amazon Games Studio and that he only cried once while working there. Thanks for starting the conversation Apollo!(MacGyver10 21:17:49 UTC)

August 21st, 2015 by theguardians@podtacular.com (Dust Storm)

Video games have become integral parts of household entertainment in the past couple decades and their introduction to the living room and every day lives exposes them to family.  In the day and age where parents must be mindful of the content consumed by their kids, video games take a front seat role.  We’ve invited a group of avid gamers who have kids to discuss what concerns there are being a parent in the video game space, what do they do when they play games with them, what they allow their kids to play, and what responsibilities parents have when making choices on games they play.  We are pleased to have on our show as guests Ducain 23 from Forge Channel, Ovaryacting from the PMS Clan, BelleBunny from Dames of Destiny and Rectify Gaming, and Grimm & Axiomm84 from Dads of Destiny.
