Once again, Harry "What Dictionary?" Al-Shakarchi turns in a beautifully worded translation, this time of the German voice track to the PC Action movie. We can't show you the movie, but we can tell you what was said. Oni.bungie.org will have the Oni portion. Thanks, Harry!

Props to Harry Al-Shakarchi, who once again comes through for us with an english translation of yesterday's PC Action article. He only translated the Halo portion... you'll have to wait for Oni Central to come back online to read the Oni portion. Thanks, Harry!

Major kudos to Simon Brownlee for sending us the scans of the German PC Action (Dec '99) Oni/Halo preview article (2 pages). This is the magazine that has the controversial Halo movie. There are two flavors:

Low Cal Page 1 (201K) and Page 2 (219K)
or
Hi Cal Page 1 (392K) and Page 2 (444K).

Pax.

Blake Noble passes on this info:

"I've just finished reading a special award section in the latest
(December 1999) Australian MacWorld, and it appears that Halo could
(hehehe) win. They say that they "may have to open a room dedicated
solely to Bungie Software". Yet another point for the Bungie Team"
