The Potential of Firefight

September 30th, 2009
GhaleonEB, a pillar of the Halo community (though he rarely ventures out of his comfortable NeoGAF lair), has written up some of his thoughts on Firefight. I find myself agreeing with many (though by no means all) of his points, and I hope (as he does) that the criticism he offers is accepted in the spirit in which he meant it - as a tool to hone any future Firefight mode in Halo: Reach. Give it a read - see what you think!(Louis Wu 19:52:10 UTC)

Behind the Scenes of ‘We Are ODST’

September 30th, 2009
GTTV did a small 'behind the scenes' feature on the live-action 'We Are ODST' short... but if it didn't give you enough info, there's a much more in-depth version now on YouTube (thanks, Zeouterlimits). It's amazing! There's even a full scene that never made the final cut. If you want a downloadable version, you can swing by TeamXbox - they've got 640x360 up now, with full 720p coming soon.(Louis Wu 19:04:02 UTC)
