My Halo

The latest news about the Halo series of games from Microsoft

Year: 2003

  • Happy New Year – Be with your loved ones!

    The year is winding down, and for some of you it’s already 2004. For me it’s not, so I’d like to take the opportunity to wish all of you a most joyous new year. For some reason I’ve been especially nostalgic of late (I blame Wu’s work on which makes it easier to go…

  • Vote early and often

    Rabid Bungie.Net updater SketchFactor has put out the call for Halo fans to make their preferences known at the MTV Ultimate Video Game Countdown, so check out Sketch’s article, then go vote! And vote again! And again! And again!

  • Maximize your Online Game

    Not living up to your full carnage potential? Never fear, Bungie is here! SketchFactor checks in over on Bungie.Net with Sketch’s Halo Mac/PC Players Companion Volume 1. There’s a lot of good info in there, people, so give it a good read!

  • We wants it!

    Ack! Bungie Comics has been updated with a new strip! Also, check out the small article with a few tidbits of info about Frankie (who wrote the strip), and elusive artist Zoë. Next week? Hmmm…

  • Auld AIquaintance

    As we wrap up 2003, the MC is desperately trying to find a New Year’s date in today’s One One Se7en. What an opportunist…

  • So THAT’S How You Get In

    Uh oh, looks like the Elites are recruiting in today’s Halo: Resolution.

  • Mutants

    Todays guest One One Se7en looks at a granmas… er, marangas… ah, you know what I mean.

  • Suddenly, a pirate ship appeared on the horizon!

    Benjamin Franklin had it wrong. Certain in this life are death, taxes, and fan fiction. Shadow Ops II: Chapter Nine, by Agent Shade Halo: The Scythe of Death Part Seven, by LordofDestruction Marooned Chapter Ten, by Steve Ollett Battle for the Norah: Part Thirteen, by Sterfrye36 Galaxy 07 – Part 7 – Regimes, by Jillybean…

  • Oh, what the hell.

    Small update at the HSP, courtesy of yours truly.

  • The Twenty Sixth Century Equivalent Of A Tomato

    And, of course, the day wouldn’t be complete without a new One One Se7en. So! Day’s over, apparently!

  • Down On Your Luck

    Apparently, “comics,” inspired by Halo, are all the rage right now. Here’s a new Halo: Resolution to start your day off with a smile. A tiny, pixelated smile. I think.

  • Stuff to read.

    Ah. Well, okay. Here’s one of those update-thingies that Wu usually does. These would be Fan Fiction er, things, so go ahead and read ’em! Okay. So there you go. A Conclusive History of the United Nations Space Command: Chapter Four: The Human-Covenant War, by witelancer Jake A Model IV: Episode Three: The Trinity, by…

  • Bling Bling.

    Got a chance to log in to the net for the first time in a couple of days… and I discovered that some of the update tools I left for the other maintainers are… well, busted. Here’s Sunday’s One One Se7en, created by kubix; hopefully, it won’t be the last one you see this week.…

  • n00b in Charge

    Final post from me, before leaving for the airport: today’s Guest One One Se7en comes from puma (now known as someone else on our forum). To get the context, you need to go back a couple of months…

  • More Desktops For You

    Continuing the clearout trend (well, ending it for now), here are 7 desktops submitted to the Wallpaper section in the last few days. This is the last image update for a week or so. If you submit content in the next few days, it’ll get dealt with… but not until early January. Enjoy!

  • Get ’em before they get you.

    We cleared the Miscellaneous Art queue yesterday… but there was a new submission that is worth getting out there. Germain Couët submitted the second of his ‘Hiding Spartans’ images; it’s a shot with 5 hidden Spartans in it, and it’s up to you to find them. There aren’t any prizes, it’s just fun!

  • Clearing the Story Queue

    A small Fan Fiction update – but it’s my last for a while, so I figured that clearing the queue made sense. (There will continue to be updates in my absence… but maybe not as frequently.) Six pieces for you today: Spartan-X Chapters 2 &3, by SilentStrider Halo Zero 2 / p9 / Lost Cause?,…

  • Halo Review at xlr8yourmac

    Accelerate Your Mac has reviewed Mac Halo – the single-player part of it, anyway. Again, one of the biggest complaints is system requirements… but this reviewer was also unhappy about the speed with which he mastered the game. (I’d guess he ran through on Normal, and hasn’t figured out yet that Legendary is an entirely…

  • You gotta love that plasma grenade.

    Cowled_Wolfe created a small, soundless stop-action movie with Halo action figures… he submitted it in WMV format (243K), but you can also grab a QuickTime version (256K) if you’d rather. He says a longer one (3 minutes, maybe), with sound and a better framerate, is in the works. Comments can go in this forum thread.

  • CobaltNova – reopening for business?

    Hehe – yesterday, we posted a news article about a new poll being run by CobaltNova (the 7th Column chapter), looking for predictions about 2004. I wondered, at the time, if this was an interesting way to re-enter the Halo community after the sudden shutdown of operations last month – and an entry by CobaltNova…
