Looking (way) down the road

December 17th, 2014 by halo@bungie.org
Silly me, thinking that coming up for air once meant things would level out a little... While you're waiting for the return of our regularly scheduled events, check out this article at Bloomberg. Bonnie Ross is the focus of a piece on women in gaming, and while there are a number of interesting parts, what stood out to me was a comment she made about the goals of the studio with respect to the life of the Halo franchise. I posted this on our forum a couple of days ago, and the discussion's been pretty lively - join in! (Louis Wu 23:33:30 UTC)

Podtacular 455: Gods of the Damned

Halo: Nightfall had some high anticipation going for it when announced that 343 would be working with Ridley Scott to produce the origin story for Agent Locke, who will be a prominent character in the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians.  While it was a pretty good production, it didn’t live up to the standards of Forward Unto Dawn, which told the origin story for Thomas Lasky.  It received mixed reviews from many of the Halo fans, with the opening episode leaving much to be desired.  With all 5 episodes of the series out, we give our opinions and thoughts on Halo: Nightfall.

Day One Signed Xbox One for Auction

December 15th, 2014 by halo@bungie.org
A very cool Xbox One - Day One Edition signed by 343 Industries and the Halo Nightfall film cast - is on sale right now on eBay (for just a few more hours). If you've got the scratch, this would make an amazing Christmas present for that Halo fanatic on your list! Thanks, MrKevinHurd.(Louis Wu 22:26:12 UTC)

Drinking Games Ep 5 – Screen Watchers

December 15th, 2014 by halo@bungie.org
Once upon a time, we let you know about a group called TeamSexy (most of the posts were in 2003 and 2004, though there've been a few references to SexyJosh in the following five years) - they liked Halo, a lot. Recently, they've been hosting a series called Drinking Games, and in honor of the release of The Master Chief Collection, they devoted an episode to Halo. I found it pretty entertaining. Check it out! (Louis Wu 22:14:00 UTC)

Omnithon – Streaming H2A for Child’s Play

December 13th, 2014 by halo@bungie.org
We just got word that Omnithon is currently streaming Halo 2 Anniversary to raise money for Child's Play - go watch, and if you've got it, throw some money in the pot! It's a great cause. (If they get to $500 in donations, they'll be running this in Solo Legendary!)(Louis Wu 20:32:05 UTC)

I… he’s WHERE?

December 9th, 2014 by halo@bungie.org
DrBizz let us know that he's expanded on his discovery of a hidden warthog in Cairo Station (we mentioned that back in March 2013). He's actually figured out a way to have the hog driveable! This is done on an original Xbox, with an unmodded version of the game. So what do you do if you're a crazy trickster and you have a warthog? Yep, you guessed it - you launch it. To the top of the Cairo Station MAC gun. Insane. Go watch.(Louis Wu 15:31:48 UTC)
