• Yahtzee Tells Us What He Really Thinks About Halo: Reach

    http://cdn2.themis-media.com/media/global/movies/player/flowplayer.commercial-3.1.5.swf Yahtzee was surprisingly kind to Halo: Reach, he actually had some kind words to say about the final title in the franchise.

  • You & Your Noble Team Buddies Can Win Some Mountain Dew Halo Goodies

    How is your Halo: Reach-ing? Racked up a bunch of frags in multi-player yet? I’ve slacked off, and now most of my free gaming time goes toward Fallout and F1 2010. There’s a neat bit of news that may be of interest to some of you. You know how when Halo 3 launched, back in 2007, there was a special edition of Mountain Dew? Well now Pepsi (Mountain Dew’s parent company)… Read More

  • Halo: Reach: Pretty Much The Definitive Halo Experience (For Good Or Bad)

    Is Halo: Reach the best Halo yet? Yeah, probably, but unlike when, say, Halo 2 came out, in 2004, it’s hardly the only good console shooter out there. You have choices now. Should you choose to Remember Reach? Let’s face it: you will and you will love every minute of it. Mostly. Read More

  • Review: SteelSeries Spectrum 5XB Xbox 360 Headset: Glasses Wearers Can Hear Their Teammates Again

    Short version: The SteelSeries Spectrum 5XB is a headset for your Xbox 360 (and PC) that lets you separate your online teammates’ voices from the sounds explosions, gunfire, and other assorted bits of mayhem.

  • Halo 2600: Halo Redone For the Atari 2600

    Now this is some fun stuff. A guy named Ed wanted to program for the Atari 2600 so he taught himself Atari assembly and created what amounts to Halo for the Atari. While the sprites are primitive and the gameplay is a little rough, it’s an amazing effort, especially for a dead platform. Best of all is his description of building the game from scratch.

  • Halo: Reach multi-player beta is really quite fun

    I spent a few hours last night playing the Halo: Reach multi-player beta. (Microsoft sent out a few early invites to writing-guys like me, but the beta opens to Halo: ODST owners today.) It’s been a while since I’ve played a Halo game for any real amount of time. I dabbled with Halo 3‘s multi-player for a little while there, but that was two years ago. First impression of… Read More

  • Set your clocks, Halo: Reach Beta intro to be shown at 11:00am PDT

    In a rather strange move for a video game, Bungie will be showing off the Halo: Reach Beta today via Halo 3: ODST’s main menu. This video will star Beta’s actress, comedienne, and weapons expert, Aisha Tyler. Chances are the video will find its way onto YouTube by the end of the day just in case you don’t have ODST. The Halo: Reach Beta Guide is also now up for your perusal. Read More

  • Bungie: The Halo 2 big E3 reveal back in 2003 was 'smoke and mirrors'

    Well now this is mildly embarrassing. Six years ago, Bungieshowed off, and I guess I use that term loosely now, Halo 2 for the very first time. Let’s see… 2003, that would make me 17. Trivia! Anyhow, what Bungie showed was a complete hunk of nonsense. This is where you act surprised. Read More
