  • "Significantly Less" Than 1% Of Halo Players Have Every Possible Achievement

    Halo fans are notoriously hardcore, but even in the Halo community, there are only a hardened few who are willing to attempt the seemingly impossible: unlocking every achievement in each Halo game (that has achievements and includes map packs) so far. That includes Halo 3, Halo Wars and the recently released Halo 3: ODST. According to Halo...

  • Halo Waypoint Is Actually Part Of Halo's Story...But It's A Secret (For Now)

    I spent a little time this afternoon on the phone with Jason Pace, the talkative creative director on the upcoming Halo Waypoint, a hub for all things Halo being added to Xbox Live as part of the next update. Pace told me about his grand ambitions for Halo Waypoint -- which you'll hear about soon -- but one part of our conversation stuck out....

  • 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...

    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,...

Serving as lead product manager from 2000 to 2003, Fowler was responsible for the brand management of numerous action games, including a little title called Halo. The word on the street...

  • 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...

  • How Many Xbox Live Friends Do You Have?

    One of the questions that's come up in the wake of my reporting about Halo 2 being the reason Microsoft isn't raising the friends cap on Xbox Live is how many people this would affect. Personally, it's taken me a long time to reach 100 friends on Xbox Live, but I'm only a few away from hitting the cap. And no, I don't have just a bunch of...

    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...
