No offense to McFarlane Toys, who’ve done a great job with the various franchise figure lines over the years, but Halo is much too big a property for a relatively niche company to handle. Now Mattel’s got the master license, and they’re putting it to good use.
The original Xbox released here in North America on November 15, 2001, bringing with it a game called Halo: Combat Evolved.
Star Wars podracing and Halo? Sounds like a weird combination. But modder CaptainDireWolf was able to make a really funny Forge Map based on Episode I’s podracing scene.
You got Arbiter in my Killer Instinct. Or at least that’s what it looks in the video posted to the Killer Instinct YouTube channel titled “Halo & Killer Instinct Season Three Tease.”
The “mainstreaming of esports” is continuing, with ESPN saying this week that they will broadcast parts of the Halo Championship Tour event at the X Games in Aspen on the main network at the end of the month, while streaming it on WatchESPN. It’s a move that will give the surprisingly low-profile Halo competitive…
It’s anybody’s guess as to when Nintendo’s going to roll out a new Metroid game that stars Samus Aran. So, one enterprising player used Microsoft’s first-person shooter to craft a tribute to the House of Mario’s iconic space bounty hunter.
It’s awesome that Microsoft added backwards compatibility for (some) Xbox 360 games to Xbox One, but it’s hardly a perfect situation. One of most demanded games for compatibility, Halo: Reach, comes with a crappy frame rate.
Watch in awe as these gamers find ways to launch themselves into places no Halo player was ever meant to go.
You can judge a first person shooter almost entirely on the strengths of its shotguns. A good video game shotgun is a bold and challenging weapon; a bad shotgun is a feather duster at a distance of more than a few feet. A good shotgun makes you feel like a champion, capable of taking on the world. A bad shotgun makes…
No, that’s not a screenshot from the first Halo. That’s Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
Let’s imagine, for a moment, that Nintendo went a little crazy and made a sci-fi Zelda game. The end result could look a lot worse than this cosplay outfit by Ten D. Motomochi.
Today teams from North America, the UK and various other places will vie online for a spot in the regionals and a shot at the $2 million 2016 Halo World Championship prize pool paid for by REQ-hungry fans.
Watch as these players defy the laws of physics and turn jumping into an art form in Halo 5.
The crouch. One of humanity’s most basic movements. Humans have been crouching since they figured out that going to the bathroom standing up only worked half of the time, but in video games we sometimes need a little prompting.
Halo used to mean quality. Its campaigns were all heroic military sci-fi, full of brilliantly-designed levels and enemies. The multiplayer was some of gaming’s best, supplying pulse-pounding firefights and thrilling victories. There was a time when a new Halo game was a guarantee of greatness. Since developer Bungie…
Watch in awe as a Halo 5 player gets absolutely demolished by a ridiculous snipe shot. Holy cow.
This joke video from Freakin Rad is corny as hell. But it’s also showing off some truly exceptional Halo and Destiny cosplay, both up-close and in a full range of motion.
Now this is how you start a Halo 5 round.
