Halo 4

Halo: The Master Chief Collection [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

A collection of four Halo games should have been a cause for much rejoicing for Xbox fans. However, somewhere down the development road the team behind the game collection forgot what made Halo successful the first time around: Multiplayer. Without a working multiplayer at launch (or indeed for a week afterwards) this game feels half-complete.

The Pros: 

+Halo 2's visual upgrade is nothing short of stunning.
+Having the ability to go through all 4 main Halo games again is awesome.
+The menu navigation and selection is slick and easy to use.

The Cons: 

-The game was released before it was completed.
-Multiplayer is still having issues getting started a week later.
-Playlists should be customizable, instead of just preset.

While we might not hit every single game for review, I'm sure some of you have been wondering where the Halo: Master Chief Collection review has been. It's understandable, especially considering the fact that we've live streamed several hours of the game on our Twitch stream. So here's the down low: We received a review copy of the game about 2 weeks before it came out, however there were issues with the multiplayer/co-op that were going to be addressed in a patch.

Halo: Forward Unto Dawn Comes To A Close In Episode 5

For the past four weeks we’ve been treated to something that has been totally surprising: a live-action representation of Halo that is actually good.  However loyal the legions of Halo fans may be there was no doubt some skepticism about the quality of the first live-action endeavor, even if series shepherd 343 Industries was over seeing everything.  Things may have started off a little slow, but Halo: Forward Unto Dawn has proven itself as an entertaining effort and that certainly rings true of the finale episode.

Halo: Forward Unto Dawn Episode 3 Is Now Available

If you have been wanting Halo: Forward Unto Dawn to pick up some steam in a sense and go balls to the wall with action then you’re bound to be happy today.  Episode three of Halo: Forward Unto Dawn has been released today and as expected it picks up from the climatic end of episode 2, but from there it goes into full-on action mode that will likely have the hearts of the Halo nation in complete flutter mode.

Halo: Forward Unto Dawn Episode 2 Is Now Available

It’s time yet again to see some live-action sci-fi goodness thanks to episode 2 of Halo: Forward Unto Dawn.  At times a series may have a few dips here and there, even Mortal Kombat: Legacy suffered such a thing, but things are held together rather nicely in the second episode of the new Halo series.

Halo: Forward Unto Dawn Episode 1 Is Now Available

Today will either be a good or bad day for Halo fans since it brings us our first episode of Halo: Forward Unto Dawn. In case you’re a Halo or video game fan that has been busy building their end of society cabin in the woods, Halo: Forward Unto Dawn is a brand new web series that delves into a new area of the Halo lore while still providing us with the elements the series is best known for.

Halo 4 Hands-on [PAX Prime 2012]

Microsoft has a tendency to drop the ball when it comes to PAX. Their booth is hardly ever the largest, or most impressive at the show… Though an argument can be made in the favor due to the titles that they tend to have. This year’s showing offered up game-play time with sequels to two of their biggest franchises: Halo and Gears of War. I wound up getting play time with both, but it was Halo 4 that caught my attention…

Former Kojima Productions Staffer Leaves Master Chief and Friends For Greener Pastures

Details on 343 Industries forthcoming second Halo trilogy may still be closely guarded, but the project has already received a minor setback of sorts.  Today 343 Industries veteran and Halo 4 Creative Director Ryan Payton has announced that he will be departing the company and will be opening his own development studio.  Ryan may not be one of the immediate godfathers or protectors of the Halo franchise, but he does have a reputation in the industry, partly because he was the chief Western influence on the Kojima Productions team during the development of Metal Gear Solid 4.

Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 4 announced at E3

It was only 10 years ago when Halo broke out on the Xbox 360, four games later we’re back to where it all started.

Microsoft didn’t hold back at E3 when it came to its most coveted franchise. With rumours circling around Halo: Combat Evolved being re-mastered for later this year, Microsoft’s press conference closed with a tease of the next chapter, Halo 4.
