  • Bungie Won't Rule Out More Halo Games, But They're A Long Ways Off

    It would be insane for Bungie Studios to categorically rule out working on another Halo game after Halo: Reach is released later this year on Xbox 360. Even though internal Microsoft developer 343 Industries is not-so-secretly working on whatever's coming after Halo: Reach, it's always possible Bungie could come back to Halo. The studio is...

  • James Cameron Strikes Back At Halo Fans Criticizing Avatar

    Are you a Halo fan? Have you seen Avatar? You're going to want to pay attention to director James Cameron's response to my question about the influence Aliens had on Halo and vice versa.

  • This Reader Unlocked Every Halo Achievement (Even That Halo Wars One)

    "Significantly less" than 1% of Halo players have managed to unlock every achievement across every Halo game, according to the developers of the recently launched Halo hub Halo Waypoint.

    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.

  • 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.

    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.
