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...

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...

[PL] Ja, Irena, ja - czyli ja i moje Halo :D
Po krótce. Nie jestem pewien czy jestem kolejną ofiarą tego astronomicznego budzetu na reklamę i cały ten "hype" wokół HALO. Wydaje mi się, że nawet pomimo mojej fascynacji formą tego przedsięwzięcia w Warszawie jestem z natury odporny na promocje. Może się jednak głupio tłumaczę bo odwlekany od ostatniej...

Neat article on some of the biggest challenges facing video game developers today, including perennial favorites fire and water.

Halo 3 or Gears of War?
I'm huge fan of Gears of War and I never played Halo 1 or 2 on my own console. Now I've been playing Halo 3 at home for a couple of hours and I feel I can take a first stab at comparing these games. Graphics: When I was playing multiplayer Halo 2 at my friend's place, I wasn't overly impressed with the...

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...

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...

[PL] Halo 3 zaatakowało Warszawę :)
Taki oto memoriał wisi sobie w tunelu pod rondem na skrzyżowaniu Marszałkowska - Al. Jerozolimskie w Warszawie (wychodząc na Rotunde w stronę bankomatów Pekao S.A.). Przyznam szczerze, że obśmiałem się po pachy. Marketing w mojej własnej firmie zaskoczył mnie pomysłowością. Gdyby nie kolega to pewnie...

Halo 3 is about to be released and Silverlight was released today . What a great combination :-) These Halo clips are so great. If that were real gameplay?! I guess we'll have to wait a couple of years before the visuals will be that advanced. http://halo.msn.com/videosHD.aspx
