Halo 2
Game Description:The defeat of the Covenant in the first Halo game was only a temporary victory, as the alien attackers have renewed their mission to wipe out all of humanity. Despite the human military force's and Master Chief's efforts, the Covenant have breeched the Earth's defenses and have left its inhabitants in a dismal situation. In the midst of desperation, players assume the role of Master Chief and lead the resistance against the Covenant to save the people of Earth from a gruesome demise. The long-awaited PC version of Bungie's FPS, Halo 2 offers the full single-player campaign and multiplayer maps of the original Xbox version, with the addition of the content in the Multiplayer Map Pack as well as a tool for building and customizing levels. The game requires Windows Vista.

  • Bungie Veterans Forming Downloadable Games Studio Moonshot Games

    Halo developer Bungie Studios has talked about developing downloadable games over the years, but Halo 3 ODST's the closest it's come to creating something small. Perhaps that approach is why Bungie veterans Michel Bastien, Damian Isla and Rob Stokes (alongside Seattle artist Mike McCain) have formed Moonshot Games, a studio strictly focused on...

  • Sessler's Soapbox: Does ODST Have the Halo Effect?

    I know you're all busy playing Firefight right now, but it's that time of week to sit down and take a minute to listen to the pearls of wisdom spit by The Sess. Adam sits down to discuss Halo 3: ODST and its strangely muted presence in this year's list of big game releases. Does ODST not need a bit marketing push because it's a part of the Halo...

  • Capcom's Keiji Inafune Teases Collaboration With Bungie

    The myth, the legend, the mega-man himself Keiji Inafune recently paid a visit to Halo developer Bungie’s studios. Why, you ask? Turns out Inafune made the trip to get some insight into Bungie’s development process, and perhaps, as strange as it may seem, take away a few tips that he could later incorporate into future Capcom...

  • What Did Bungie Think Of District 9?

    There might be a Halo movie eventually, but what was supposed to be the Halo movie helmed by Peter Jackson protégé Neill Blomkamp became District 9. While interviewing Bungie community manager Brian Jarrard at Penny Arcade Expo last weekend, Jarrard admitted that while he hadn't personally seen District 9 yet, much of the Bungie...

  • Halo 3: ODST PAX 2009 Brian Jarrard Interview

    There was always a line to play Halo 3: ODST at the Penny Arcade Expo this year. But I wasn't there to play the latest adventure (and the first one not starring Master Chief) in the Halo universe. Rather, I wanted to speak with Bungie's community manager, Brian Jarrard, about the impending release of ODST, Bungie's presence at PAX 2009,...

  • Bungie Says Halo: Reach Might Not Be Its Last Halo Game After All

    “Halo: Reach will be Bungie’s last Halo game,” is a statement that would seem obvious enough. And yet, there’s apparently a bit more wiggly room than previous thought, as evidence by recent comments made by Bungie community and PR director Brian Jarrard during GamesCom 2009. Speaking with VideoGamer, Jarrard said,...

  • Microsoft Responds To Accusations Of Halo 2 Holding Back Xbox Live

    Halo 2 is the reason you can't have more than 100 friends on Xbox Live, I reported earlier this week. Technically, it's because the old Xbox Live tech, which Halo 2 runs on, can't support more than 100 friends, but Halo 2 remains the only viable community preventing Microsoft from shutting down the previous XBL. Microsoft has since issued an...

    I reported today that Halo 2 is the reason Microsoft has yet to cut off support for the original Xbox Live. Splitting from the old Xbox Live architecture would allow Microsoft to enable support for more than 100 people on your Xbox Live friends list. Thanks to Bungie's comprehensive community website, we actually know how many people are...

  • The Real Reason You Can't Have More Than 100 Xbox Live Friends -- Halo 2

    Microsoft has never issued a fully satisfying answer about why Xbox Live, almost four years after the launch of Xbox 360, cannot support more than 100 friends. The company has blamed it on technical obstacles related to the original Xbox Live architecture. It's simpler than that. The real reason you can't have more than 100 friends on Xbox Live...

    If a handful of games and several novelizations haven’t provided you with enough Halo content, then you’ll be pleased to hear about 343 Industries upcoming Halo Legends project. Taking a cue (and a few of the studios) from the short-film collection based on The Matrix universe (The Animatrix), Halo Legends will consist of several...

    When novels set in the Halo universe are published, they sell many, many copies. That's right, Halo and great literature actually go together, and fans of both Halo's myth-tinged sci-fi universe and book-readin' are numerous enough to propel each novelization of the game series to the top of the New York Times best-seller list for fiction....
