Bungie, the studio behind Halo and Marathon, are looking for 3D artists, animators, and programmers.
Titled Halo Legends, the anime series will be distributed by WB on DVDs and Blu-ray early next year, and will be previewable on XBLA this fall.
Starting October 31 at 12:01 AM there will be a special game type called Infection. In this mode it’s (mostly) humans versus brainless zombies. During the start of every Infection match a few people get pinned on the zombie team, but most are fighting the living dead. However, if a zombie chomps on an unlucky […]
The rumor is true. Bungie branched off from Microsoft and is moving in the direction of becoming an independent company. That doesn’t mean Bungie is about to switch gears and develop for other platforms or does it? Harold Ryan from Bungie explains, "We will continue to develop with our primary focus on Microsoft’s platforms; we […]
This is probably a first for the video game world so it’s worth mentioning that a video game character was part of the closing bell ceremony at the NASDAQ today. Along with Master Chief members of Bungie and Shane Kim celebrated the launch of Halo 3 by reminding investors that Microsoft’s cash cow is out […]
ThaKingRocka wanted to warn (thanks!) all the eager importers hoping to save a buck by purchasing the Hong Kong Asian version of Halo 3 that the voice acting is only in Chinese. This is the version that Play-Asia is selling for $49.99 and you may want to avoid it if you want to hear Master […]
On September 16, nine days before Halo 3 hits stores, Microsoft is selling the Halo 3 Special Edition Xbox 360. The package comes with an Xbox 360, 20GB hard drive, wireless controller, Play & Charge kit, headset and exclusive Halo 3 downloadable content (theme / gamertag icons) for $399. The price is slightly more expensive […]
Bungie is raking in the dough by shilling of Halo 3 t-shirts, figures, Mountain Dew and now a pair of laser tag guns modeled after weapons in the Halo series. You can purchase a Plasma pistol (left) for $70 or the Plasma rifle (right) for $120. Obviously these guns are way more expensive than your […]
Last week at E3 I had a casual chat with Brian Gerard and Frank O’Connor from Bungie. We started talking about Halo 3 and they are proud that it’s on Famitsu’s top 20 list. The Famitsu guys loved how the turrets can have a third person view. Soon the chat deviated from Halo 3’s increased […]
Two days after it comes out in North America, Japan gets Halo 3 on September 27. Europe gets a day before Japan on September 26, which means in a period of three days most of the world will get to “finish the fight”. While first person shooters aren’t nearly as popular in Japan as […]
Some people presume that Japan doesn’t like Western games, but that isn’t necessarily the case. Grand Theft Auto sold fairly well and Ratchet & Clank has always been a hit even though the box art has cartoony characters. Similar to how there is a growing niche market for strategy RPGs in North America, a first […]
While Crackdown was supposedly an easy ticket into the Halo 3 beta, technical difficulties prevented people who had a copy of Crackdown from accessing the beta when it went live. There is a software update for Crackdown in the downloads section that fixes the problem and to make up for the delay the Halo 3 […]
Microsoft sent over an e-mail with Halo 3’s release date, September 25 in North America and a day later for Europe. If you have Crackdown or you’re lucky enough to have a beta key, the multiplayer beta begins in a few hours, 5AM PDT tomorrow and will run until June 6th 11:59 PM PDT. Halo […]
