Rediscovering my love of “Halo”

Saturday, March 6th, 2010 by Flatliner

A long time ago, I owned a heavy black game system with green touches known as the Xbox. And on this system, I had one of the best experiences in my gaming life when I played through the original “Halo: Combat Evolved”. At the time, I didn’t realize that the first person shooter genre had been relatively unsuccessful on home consoles (Goldeneye: 007 on the N64 notwithstanding), nor did I foresee that this game would revolutionize the way that the genre was even thought about in the living room. I just fell in love with the main character, forever known as “Master Chief” and his sidekick “Cortana”, and I was engrossed in the epic nature of their story.

Halo Legends Trailer

Friday, July 24th, 2009 by Zach Potts

Halo Legends is the 7-episode anime series planned to hit DVD and Blu-Ray early next year. Luckily, we have a trailer to view until that time, to see what each of the 5 creators are working on.

Personally, it seems a bit…out of character. It doesn’t seem like the Halo universe lends itself well to an anime; just seems strange and out of place. Oh well.

Halo Wars Review

Thursday, February 26th, 2009 by Ryan L. Lopees

Title: Halo Wars
Developer/Publisher: Ensemble Studios/MS Games
Platform: Xbox 360
Release Date: 03/03/2009
Number of Players: Single-player Campaign/2 player Co-Op/Up to 6 Player Multiplayer on Xbox Live.

“Who needs Spartans?” It’s a question you’ll actually hear posed in the game by some infantry units if you listen carefully. Frankly, I played through the campaign fairly fine without them, but they definitely have their uses. So let’s talk a little about Ensemble Studio’s final magnum opus (under the name Ensemble Studios that is), Halo Wars. Normally I am quite despising of seeing the RTS genre on consoles. Next to survival horror games, RTS titles have always been high on my list of favourite genres. I’ve managed to steer clear of almost every RTS outing on consoles to date because I prefer the micro-managing capability offered by a keyboard and mouse. Well, how did Halo Wars fair against this grizzled keyboard/mouse veteran? I will tell you.

Halo Board Game Coming Soon

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008 by Zach Potts

So, apparently Genius Products and B1 Games are creating a Halo board game that centers around strategy, which will be releasing in September. It seems odd, but almost interesting. I’m not really sure how to feel at this point, but apparently there will be a lot of different ways in which you can play, as you can also manipulate the board around to form many variations. Check the press release after the jump for all the info.
