ASE Ep. 115 Marathon Infinity lvl 22 Strange Aeons

July 22nd, 2014 by narcogen
Strange Aeons

No need to wait for strange aeons for Blackstar and Narcogen to die, even in a level with hardly any enemies! In this case, we're bringing the plot of Marathon Infinity to a close by completing the activation of the dormant S'pht AI, Thoth, so he/she/it can call in the S'pht'Kr cavalry to kick Pfhor butt.

Son of Grendel

It seems we've been rescued from the Pfhor by a partially-activated Thoth. All that's left to do is investigate this underground power source... but let's go look for ammo, first, shall we?

July 17th, 2014 by halo@bungie.org
The Halo Bulletin is short and sweet this week - there's a summary of what will be at San Diego Comic-Con next week, along with Matchmaking updates (for the Halo fans not totally immersed in the Destiny Beta, of course), some cool Halo-themed Forza content, and some great 'Quarterback' screenshots.

MS studio closure shouldn’t affect Halo projects

July 17th, 2014 by halo@bungie.org
There've been rumblings all week about layoffs at Microsoft... and today, Variety has an article explaining that Xbox Entertainment Studios, responsible for (among other stuff) the two live-action Halo projects currently in the works, is going to be closed. However, it sounds like both projects are among those which will see completion - or at least that's the plan now.

Tellem, Jordan Levin and some of the Xbox Entertainment Studios team will remain with the company to see the completion of its original programming already in production, Microsoft said.

That includes "Halo," the first major project spearheaded by the division, is in advanced negotiations for a pickup at Showtime in a shared window with Xbox. Project is a co-production with Amblin TV.

Others are the "Halo" prequel story "Nightfall," exec produced by Ridley Scott, and the docu "Signal to Noise," about the notorious Atari "E.T" game flop in the early 1980s.

(Bolding mine, to show that both Halo projects are mentioned specifically.) Thanks to thebruce0 for noticing.(Louis Wu 21:27:08 UTC)

Cloak and Dagger

July 17th, 2014 by halo@bungie.org
So every Monday (almost), Rooster Teeth releases a new episode of Red vs Blue Season 12. This past Monday was no exception... but we're just getting to letting you know about it now. We suck. But they don't. This episode is... well, you should watch it. Episode 9 was all about setup - Episode 10 is the punchline for all that. And let me tell you... it packs a wallop. Pay close attention to the music, and you might actually figure out what's going on before it's revealed. Great stuff. (Louis Wu 20:54:45 UTC)

A Converted Church in Venice, Italy

Blackstar and Narcogen face a profuse proliferation of insidious switches and spooky level design, not to mention a passel of fusion infused BOBs sent by the devilish Durandal. Also there's a spot of lag.
