The Halo Community Is In For A Surprise

The Halo Community Is In For A Surprise

Installation 01 is a Halo game that’s been in production for years. It’s not made by Bungie, nor is it sanctioned by 343i or Microsoft. Installation 01 is a fan game created by dedicated fans of Halo 3, which many fans of the Halo series claim to be the best. I subjectively agree. I won’t make you read more of my text though. Check out the new cinematic trailer below, which actually captures and expands the Halo universe as fans understand it. Are you done? Of course not. You want more. You need it!…

Halo 5 Ultra Rare Swarovski Helmet

Halo 5 Ultra Rare Swarovski Helmet

I just started playing Halo 5: Guardians last night. I had to wait for the box to come in the mail and then I had our talent come over (Norah) and unbox that game for an upcoming video! When it was all said and done, instead of editing the unboxing for viewing pleasure, I installed the game and spent too many hours playing it. Get one thing straight – Halo 5 is spectacular. There’s one thing that provides as much spectacle, and it’s a Swarovski Halo 5 Master Chief helmet, that’s currently available for bid on eBay. The…

Bungie Congratulates Halo 5 Launch

Bungie Congratulates Halo 5 Launch

UPDATE 10/28/15: The official Halo Twitter responded with kind words. The original story and response are provided below.   Just a few years ago, developer Bungie concluded their exclusive relationship with Microsoft. What did that mean? Bungie would no longer produce Halo video games for Microsoft’s gaming consoles. After Bungie left Microsoft, leaving their blood, sweat, and tears behind them, the company moved into multi-platform territory, forming new bonds with Microsoft and Sony. Bungie hasn’t forgotten their roots, much to their credit. Earlier today, Bungie applauded 343i (the team that replaced them at Microsoft) for the…

Destiny 2.0 & Taken King Review In Progress

Destiny 2.0 & Taken King Review In Progress

Just around one year ago, vanilla Destiny released for last gen and current gen consoles, minus Nintendo’s platforms. The hype was real. It was a while since developer Bungie released a video game. Their last game was part of the esteemed Halo franchise. Based off of footage, concept art, and leaked story, many thought Destiny was Halo’s spiritual successor in MMOFPS form. There were two glaring complications. Bungie kept telling us to call “their” game an “MMO” and 343 Industries helms the still well-regarded Halo series. Vanilla Destiny released and…

Halo 5: Guardians Glorious Opening Cinematic

Halo 5: Guardians Glorious Opening Cinematic

On October 27th, 2015, Halo 5 ships to our doorsteps. It’s yet another game on this years already stacked AAA title software lineup. Although I’m not a fan of CGI videos as selling points, because they’re not indicative of final gameplay, I’ve often felt that the Halo franchise has done a respectful job showcasing what’s possible in gameplay through their trailers and cinematics.  The newly released opening available for your viewing pleasure below is no different. We’re getting a solid idea what to expect regarding weapons Spartans will be able to…
