The Long Road Home

December 31st, 2010
If you didn't get a chance to see it when it was originally on the Waypoint XBL portal, check out The Long Road Home - a very cool piece that explores some of the events bridging Halo 2 and Halo 3 - now up on the Waypoint website. Lots of good story content in there, and some nice clarifications. Give it a watch! (GrimBrother One 16:02:09 UTC)

Finishing 2010’s Fight

December 31st, 2010
From everyone here at HBO to all of you, we hope that you have a safe and Happy New Year celebration, wherever you may be. 2010 saw the culmination of 10 years of hard work and dedication from Bungie with the release of Halo Reach. I for one want to thank them personally for the worlds they've created, and giving us reasons to keep gathering and discussing. 343 Industries also provided us with some very exciting Halo content in 2010, and 2011 certainly looks to continue that trend in full force. We wish them all the best of luck in carrying the torch. Happy New Year, HBO, thank you for all the ways that each of you make this community what it is!(GrimBrother One 15:44:16 UTC)
