• PAX 08: Bungie showing (part of) Halo 3 "Mythic" map pack

    Live from the floor of PAX 08: Bungie is demoing a new Halo 3 map called Assembly; the picture above shows the title “Halo 3 Mythic,” which the Bungie guy said was just a placeholder name for the map pack.

  • Bungie: No, We're not adding bots to Halo 3.

    After Bungie’s acceptance video for an EDGE magazine award dropped ambiguous hints as to what they may have in the works, the Halo 3 community exploded with theories.

  • Bungie praises Call of Duty – much they have to learn

    I know, CoD4 was modern warfare but I just wanted to make that picture.
    I’ve been putting off playing Call of Duty 4 (I know, I know) so I can catch up on the rest of the last year’s excellent crop of games (Bioshock, Crysis, Persona 3, Mass Effect), but literally everything I’ve heard about it has been positive, which is pretty rare. I’m sure it’s in no small… Read More

  • Bungie's got three projects up its sleeve

    Everybody has been speculating about the recent delayed E3 announcement, thought by many to be Halo-related (really going out on a limb there, everybody). Well, they’ve revealed on their blog that they have three projects in the pipe, at varying degrees of completion. The idea that there are three undisclosed projects coming out of a Bungie that is more independent than a few years… Read More

  • Mystery surrounds pulled Bungie E3 trailer: New Halo?

Now, the only way that could happen, the only sway Microsoft has over Bungie, is if… Read More

  • Why Bungie got left out in the rain at E3

    We were as pumped as everyone else to see what was going on with Bungie, and their big countdown suggested it was both big and imminent. So we were just as disappointed when they were a no-show altogether. What’s up with that? Bungie posted yesterday: “For the last several months, we’ve been building toward a reveal of something exciting that Bungie is working on,”… Read More

  • Bungie announcing something at E3 – please let it be more Marathon

    It’s far more likely it’s just a playable build of Halo Wars or something, but I wish they’d make a return to the labyrinthine hallways and insane AIs of my favorite FPS of yore, Marathon. The reason we are all a-twitter is this little snippet from the hosts when ending Bungie’s latest podcast: Brian: Isn’t there something going on on July 14th or something… Read More

  • Happy Bungie Day!

    If you haven’t already been informed of this then I have great news for you! Today is Bungie Day and to celebrate you can download a gaggle of Halo 3 goodies from Xbox Live that include themes, gamer pics, and the ultra frosty Cold Storage map as well as a price drop for the Legendary Map Pack down to 600 MS points.

  • Rumor: Halo prequel action/adventure Bungie's next project?

    Oh, joy — I smell a return to Marathon. Or Pathways Into Darkness. Whichever, they’re both pretty awesome games. According to the rumor mill at 1up, Bungie’s next project may be “a third-person action/adventure shooter hybrid that takes place before the original Halo, chronicling early skirmishes between the ODST troops and the Covenant”. Not exactly the plot… Read More

  • Microsoft partnering with Peter Jackson for new Halo game; Bungie's not welcome to help

    There’s another game coming in the Halo series, but it isn’t coming from Bungie, it’s coming from Microsoft and Peter Jackson. Yes, that Peter Jackson. We’ve known for awhile now that Jackson was involved in a Halo project, most likely a game, as the movie is dead in the water right now.

  • Microsoft rectifies erased Xbox 360 and then some

    You remember Nathaniel, right? Well, Microsoft has made good on their word and, hopefully, made Nathaniel one happy kid because they sent him a treasure trove of goodies for having wiped clean his autographed 360.

Bungie, makers of the wildly popular Halo series, sent the gamer a bunch of cool stuff to replace the signatures and drawing of… Read More

  • Bungie to do something cool for one lucky fan, but we really don't know what it is yet

    You know, I love the Halo series. Not only are they very, very fun games to play, but Bungie’s always done a really good job of community building, which isn’t just important for a game franchise, it’s just cool, too. So when Nathaniel’s Xbox got the Mr. Clean treatment recently, and Bungie heard about it, and they’ve decided to take action. We’re not sure… Read More

  • Bungie sorta hints at its next non-Halo game: 'totally different,' 'pretty cool'

    [photopress:bungiewhat_1.jpg,full,right] Microsoft and Bungie separated last October, but there had been no indication what kind of non-Halo game (or games) Bungie planned to develop. Today that’s still sorta the case, but we do know that the game will be “pretty cool.” In the latest Bungie podcast, company staff said that the new game will be something “totaly… Read More
