Making Halo Wars look like Halo

June 30th, 2009
GrimBrother One noticed a new Developer Blog at HaloWars.com - this one discusses how the Halo Wars team matched the art style of the Halo universe... with minimal help from Bungie. Interesting read!(Louis Wu 22:37:29 UTC)

Halo Fun for your Tuesday Afternoon

June 30th, 2009
Stuff that showed up on the BungLog™ since I headed out this afternoon:

  • The latest 'Know Your Ninja' feature looks at Butane123, who will ban you as soon as look at you. Wait, that's not right. ...who's a really nice guy, and will buy you hot chocolate. No, that's not right, either. Oh, go read the piece, and see what he's like.
  • CMNeir and friends have released 'Can't Help But Stare' - I guess there are things more important than playing Halo. Or something.
  • My Halo Life has released 'They Call Me Chief' - which makes absolutely no sense. I think that's the point.

Thanks, urk.(Louis Wu 22:35:04 UTC)

RT: Unhappy Days

June 30th, 2009
Burnie is constantly insisting that his news sites (cnn.com = yawn) are better than mine (wwttd.com = boob slip!). I wish he'd just stop living in the past and get with the program. New media dude. New media.

Bungie.net Stats Maintenance

June 30th, 2009
Bungie.net stats are offline today, for a short time, starting soon. (If that sounds vague, blame urk.) Just maintenance, though - don't get all excited about new features or anything. Update: urk wanted to point out that it was actually Achronos who posted that vague note, not him. Way to man up, urk.(Louis Wu 16:21:34 UTC)

Seattle Times Followup – Harold Ryan Interview

June 30th, 2009
General Vagueness let us know about a followup article to the Seattle Times piece we mentioned yesterday; it contains edited excerpts from an interview with Bungie's Harold Ryan. It's really a fascinating read; Ryan doesn't cross the line about what can and can't be spoken of, but he certainly does a good job of fleshing out the intermediate spaces. If you're interested in how Bungie works, and where their president thinks they're going, you should read this. (There are small tidbits about Reach in here, too - nothing earth-shattering, but certainly more than we knew before.)(Louis Wu 15:24:22 UTC)
