  • Blog Post: Charity Fragathon…cool idea!

    Great idea from Chris Williams and the Twin Cities XNA User Group : The Twin Cities XNA User Group is throwing their first ever charity event! Admission to this event is $10 (ten bucks!!) and that covers entry into what just might be the biggest Halo 3 tournament you've ever seen. We'll also have a room...
  • Blog Post: The Elite Handheld Gaming System

    OK, so perhaps "handheld" is a bit of an exaggeration, but this XBOX 360 laptop mod is nothing short of brilliant. Would be a hoot to crack that puppy open on a plane. Definitely the work of someone with far too much time on their hands. But way cool nonetheless. Includes high-def 720p display, the ring...
  • Blog Post: Halo/Firefly Convergence

    One other thing I noticed while watching the Halo 3 credits...the voice cast is pretty impressive. Among others, from character actor Keith David , to perennial bad buy Terence Stamp , it also includes the best damn spaceship captain ever to grace TV, none other than Nathan Fillion of the late, lamented...
  • Blog Post: Master Chief Follow-up

    No, I'm not going to tell you how the game ends. If you want to know, play it through, and Finish the Fight. But I did take the advice of Ralph in Chicago , and played through to the end again from the Rally Point Alpha save point, and waited through the credits (which were nicely done), and...well,...
  • Blog Post: Master Chief...is he, or isn't he?

    Hmm...I'm undecided : My son and I are having an argument as to the fate of Master Chief... Is he or isn't he? (I won't say more to avoid spoiling it if you haven't finished it yet). I say he isn't (There's no way... The quote "If only it were so easy..." and that there's no evidence says to me he isn...
  • Blog Post: Wired Halo 3 Review

    Having just finished the single-player campaign mode myself, this review is very timely: So, here I am again: Standing on a sandy beach, near the edge of a pine-tree forest, hunched behind a stone outcropping -- while an army of bellowing aliens singe my armor with 3,000-degree bolts of plasma. Does...

  • Blog Post: The Tech - Volume 127, Issue 41

    This is very cool, but I'm pretty sure that Master Chief doesn't wear shoes like that: photo by TungShen Chew In recognition of the release of Halo 3, a highly anticipated video game by Microsoft and Bungie, MIT hackers adorned the John P. Harvard statue, in Harvard Yard, with a Spartan helmet. The back...
  • Blog Post: Halo 3 Rocks

    OK, so I suppose it's no surprise. But after a couple of days of owning it, I am completely impressed with Halo 3. The first day I played through a good portion of campaign mode (on Normal...I'll surely try a harder level in the future). As suggested by the recent Wired Magazine article , it's clear...
  • Blog Post: Halo 3 Midnight Madness in Tampa

    My colleague Joe Healy has pics .
  • Blog Post: Halo 3 Today - and More HD

    I'm jazzed. Later today, the UPS guy should arrive with a package for me that includes what will likely soon become the best-selling video game in history... Halo 3 . After all the waiting, it will be great to finally play through the full campaign mode, and experience the multiplayer action, save videos...
  • Blog Post: Halo 3 Diorama - "making of" video

    The Halo 3 "memorial" diorama site is just an amazing piece of work: http://halo3.com/believe There's also a "making of" video that is told from the perspective of a post-Halo 3 world: http://xboxmovies.teamxbox.com/xbox-360/5407/Halo-3-Believe-Diorama-Making-Of While I'm not completely sure how I feel...
  • Blog Post: Using Silverlight Streaming for Halo 3

    Dave found out something I didn't notice about the Halo 3 HD videos that were published recently on MSN...they're using Silverlight Streaming. Channel 9 is running an excellent video on Silverlight Streaming and how it is being used for the Halo 3 HD Videos I previously mentioned here . Check it out...
  • Blog Post: The Science of Play

    Halo 3 is coming, and Wired has a really fascinating article on some of the effort that went into making the game fun for a variety of types of gamers: Sitting in an office chair and frowning slightly, Randy Pagulayan peers through a one-way mirror. The scene on the other side looks like the game room...
  • Blog Post: You don't tug on Superman's Cape...

    you don't spit into the wind, and you surely don't take the helmet off of the Master Chief : The face of the Master Chief is never revealed. His visor is solid reflective gold, like the faceplates of the Apollo astronauts. Halo's designers see the Master Chief's facelessness as a dramatic device, a way...
