The Halo series revolves around a rich and complex story about vengeance, tradition, and bravery. Many plot points get lost when you're only playing Team Deathmatch, or if you're simply new to the series. X-Play has broken down some of the key points in Halo's narrative, just in time for Halo 4. Check out this video and learn your gaming roots!
To get ready for Halo 4, X-Play sent Tiffany Smith to the Aria Group to get a behind-the-scenes look at the life-size Halo 4 Warthog. Why did 343 commission a life-size, street legal, replica of Master Cheif's choice ride? Because they could. 343's Kiki Wolfkill and Frank O'Connor were on hand to make sure this Warthog was legit.
Halo 4 will be released on November 6, 2012. I wonder which collector's edition I need to buy to get the giant Warthog.
Actress Mackenzie Mason is better known to gamers as her video-game self Cortana from Halo 4. In the video below, we go behind-the-scenes with Mason to learn more about what went in to bringing her unqiue character to life in Halo 4 using the latest motion capture technology.

A new Grand Theft Auto 5 trailer will be released on November 14.
While I admit it's a little ridiculous to post a picture of a date for the eventual release of a trailer that advertises a game, this is Grand Theft Auto 5 we're talking about, so it's kind of a big deal(tm).
Anyway, check back here on November 14 to be among the first to watch the new Grand Theft Auto 5 trailer--while you wait, check out the first Grand Theft Auto 5 trailer. I embedded it under the cut.
Tomorrow, November 6, 2012, may be the most important day of your life and it's not because of the election. Tomorrow is Halo 4 day. To help you prepare for the real battle between red and blue, we posted the first 15 minutes of Halo 4's single player story. Watch how Master Chief's story of an ancient evil hell bent on annihilation begins.
- REVIEW: Halo 4 Review
Halo 4 is an Xbox 360 exclusive.
Angry Birds Star Wars is coming to various mobile platforms later this week on November 8, 2012 and Rovio gets you set today with its most revealing gameplay trailer yet. Take a peek at birdy versions of Han Solo, Chewbacca, R2-D2, C-3P0, Obi-Wan Kenobi and more in our latest look at the upcoming mobile game.
Sure, it's basically Angry Birds Space with Star Wars-y locales and a new cast of familiar characters, but isn't that sort of the point? Angry Birds Space is a solid game, sure, but it'll be so much sweeter to slingshot those destructive, egg-shaped avians into low-gravity environments when they can also shoot blasters and Force push the crap out of things.
The new Assassin's Creed 3 commercial is a bit blockier than the other offerings we've seen so far. Featuring a Team America vibe, the clip, which will show during Cartoon Network's Adult Swim, features a marionette version of assassin Connor Kenway facing off against a group of red coats, showing off "new weapons", "skills" and "enemies" you'll face in AC3. Do you prefer the puppets or gameplay?
You've heard the rumors, now witness the reality. Bethesda's Dragonborn DLC for The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim is officially a thing, with a new trailer revealing... lots. Let's start with the big-ticket feature add first: yes, it's true-- dragon mounts confirmed.
The setting for this new DLC appears to be Solstheim, the island that was last seen in The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind as post-release expansion pack. The story appears to focus on an evil Dragon Priest, the former ruler of Solstheim who preferred feasting on dragons to serving them. In fact, it seems he was the FIRST Dragonborn.
The trailer is also overflowing with looks at a variety of new enemy types and what appears to be a new alternate form (a la werewolf/Vampire Lord). The Dragonborn DLC will be available on Xbox Live starting December 4, 2012 for 1,600 MS Points.
Take a look at the newly launched Kickstarter for Big Robot Games' Sir, You Are Being Hunted. Perhaps you've heard of this one? The open-world survival/stealth FPS drops players into a procedurally generated rendering of the British countryside where roaming steampunk robots shoot any humans that they see.
The Kickstarter funding goal is set at £40,000, a number which seems very achievable given that, with 26 days remaining in the funding period, the amount pledged is already at £32,239 at the time of this writing. Much of the work on Sir has already been done; Big Robot is turning to Kickstarter to ensure that the final product is fully polished.
In the Gadget Pr0n video below, Alex Albrecht checks out Apple's latest version of the iPod Nano, and puts the thin-as-hell device through its paces. How does the new design and 2.5-inch multi-touch display stack up against other music players and past iterations of the Nano? Check out the video to find out!
Ike Barinholtz stopped by Attack of the Show to chat with his old friend Josh Meyers. Ike has been working as a writer and actor on the hit show The Mindy Project.
You may not have known this, but Ike and Josh used to be roommates in Amsterdam before the two worked together on MADtv. Find out how Ike earned the name Baby Huey, what it's like writing for a hit show and more!
The Man with the Iron Fists will totally pulverize your face with awesomeness. Wu Tang Clan member The RZA is directing his first flick, and it's epic: Martial arts, adventure, and Eli Roth!
In this video, Sara Underwood talks to writer/director/star RZA, Roth and Dave Bautista for details on The Man with the Iron Fists, and gets answers on the tough questions, like "Is it possible to punch a man so hard his eyeball flies out?"
The 2012 Presidential Election is swiftly approaching, and while we won't know who's won the race for another week, we wanted to simulate Barack Obama and Mitt Romney facing off against each other in a different sort of battle. Utilizing WWE 13's character creator, we re-created both Obama and Romney and pit them against each other in three different matches: a TLC (table, ladder, and chair) match, an inferno match, and a steel cage match, to determine who the victor of the election (and the title belt) will be.
The official trailer for the Mass Effect trilogy has been released. Gamers can finally experience all three of BioWare's epic sci-fi RPGs in one complete package. Mass Effect 1, 2, and 3 follow the story of Commander of Shepard as the entire universe is threatened by the return of the Reapers. I don't want to spoil anything in case you haven't played it, but I will say Mass Effect 2 is one of my all time favorite video games.
I would note the trailer says, "one man" but in actuality the true Shepard is FemShep.
