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 […]

By Spencer . October 5, 2007 . 8:33am

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 […]

By Spencer . September 25, 2007 . 11:30pm

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 […]

Bungie: If Halo DS existed it wasn’t from us

By Spencer . July 18, 2007 . 1:12am

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 […]

By Spencer . June 29, 2007 . 12:06am

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 […]

Surprise! Japan wants Halo 3 too

By Spencer . June 5, 2007 . 8:44am

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 […]

By Spencer . May 16, 2007 . 10:55pm

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 […]
