Dervish read an article on silly sci-fi constructs based on the concept of 'Evolution', and saw far too much Halo for his liking. Do you agree?(Louis Wu 20:02:51 UTC)

343 Snapshot: Monitor Madness

May 30th, 2013

Halo is a fictional universe. However, the place where it’s created is not. Serving as home to both Mister and Master Chief, little else is known about the inside of our studio…until now. Enjoy a teeny tiny peek inside 343 industries, and if you have a hankering to see or learn about something that isn’t overly top secret, send it to bsangel[at]halowaypoint.com and we’ll see what we can do! This week, @ChrisJ_7 wanted to know who has the highest number of screens or computers. That would be Chase Thompson, who you see below!
