Halo: Moving Women Forward

When many think of Halo, the image of the green, armor clad Master Chief running with his assault rifle comes to mind.  The image evokes a romantic appeal of space warfare; charging into battle with fellow space marines, going up against insurmountable odds and driving heavily armored vehicles to blast away a fortified position.  The one thing that Halo has changed in the past few years is the notion that not all of the warfare is performed by men.  The Halo series has made small steps to include women on the front lines more than any other first person shooter (FPS) or action franchise.

Video Gun Porn

Guns in games have come a long way since Doom's BFG 9000. From gravity guns to plasma rocket launchers, we have utilized some of the sexiest firepower to blow away enemies.

Halo: Reach Review

The uninitiated often ask what sets Halo apart from other games - what exactly is it that's made it so popular over the last decade? Fans will disagree on what to tell them: Is it the "thirty seconds of fun" Bungie themselves often refer to, the half-minute battles that add variety and excitement to each player's experience? Is it the galaxy-spanning story of humanity's desperate struggle against a genocidal alien race that inspires the fanaticism of Halo devotees? Or is it the sheer number of choices presented to players through every facet of each game in the series? Hit the jump for the rest of the review. Read More

Bungie: Fans Won\'t Miss the Chief

Halo: Reach isn't the first game in the series without the Master Chief, but one might think his absence in the upcoming shooter would be felt more than it was in ODST, the previous Halo game that starred characters other than the iconic super soldier. For one thing, there's the knowledge that Bungie will never create another game featuring the character, not to mention the plethora of other Spartans in the game emphasizing his absence. Brian Jarrard of Bungie feels otherwise, though. In fact, he's certain that fans won't miss the Chief after all. When asked at a recent Halo: Reach press event in San Francisco whether it was a difficult decision to take the game in a different direction, Jarrard replied that the studio jumped at the chance "to tell a different kind of story."

What Bungie Learned from the Halo: Reach Multiplayer Beta

The Halo: Reach multiplayer Beta test, held last March, was Bungie\'s second such experiment. The first one was for Halo 3, and it required players to purchase Crackdown, a totally unrelated title, in order to play. Reach\'s Beta, on the other hand, only required players to own ODST, which most Halo fans did anyway. This is important, since the point of the multiplayer Betas is for Bungie to gather information about the game from as many players as possible. With the Reach Beta, that was a lot of players. But what exactly did they learn? Hit the jump to find out. Read More

Halo 3 Playlists to be "Downsized" to Make Way for Halo: Reach

With Halo set to Reach out to new places this fall, Bungie would still keep the burgeoning multiplayer of Halo 3 alive, right? Well, sort of. The developer has announced in its daily update that, in order to prepare for the release of Halo: Reach several Halo 3 playlists will be "downsized and concatenated". This process has already begun, as the official Major League Gaming Free-For-All playlist (MLG FFA, for short) has been removed from the game. Bungie states that these playlists will continue to be "combined, modified, or removed" and in the end several will be deleted from the game. These merged playlists will also become DLC required (with the exception of Social Slayer and Lone Wolves), and no new playlists will be added to the game. Is Bungie merely clearing the way for their next multiplayer fragfest? Or are they cutting off the hand that feeds them too quickly? Read More
