You've never used these guns or played these levels in any Halo game, and odds are, you never will.
Sure, you can glitch Atheon off the cliff by yourself with a few grenades, but apparently even that isn't as fast as four players wailing on him with exotic rocket launchers. Also, clips from World of Warcraft, Alien: Isolation, Halo 2 and more!
Debuting during a panel at this weekend's Rooster Teeth Expo in Austin, Texas, the "Terminal" trailer for the Halo: Master Chief Collection gives Keith David's Arbiter even more words to say, so it wins.
With the population peaking "consistently at approximately 20 players or less," Halo 2's PC multiplayer has been given one month to live. 343 Industries yesterday said the servers will be turned off on Feb. 15.
Lovers of Halo (or of art in the most traditional sense) should dig these images from artist Eddie Smith, who over the years has worked on several games in the epic sci-fi saga.
The latest issue of Official Xbox Magazine UK says that 343 Industries, maker of last year's Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary (and, of course, this year's all-new Halo 4), has similar plans for Halo 2.
How many different Master Chief figures can McFarlane Toys make? Oh they're just getting started. The company recently announced series two of the Halo Anniversary Edition figures, featuring the white-striped version of John 117 from the animated Halo Legends short "The Package".
With excellent sniping spots and what amounts to a vehicular combat arena at the bottom, Halo 2's "Headlong" multiplayer map is reborn as "Breakneck" in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. Bask in the glorious gameplay footage and screens, plus get a peek at the very first Halo campaign level in all its remastered…
Action figures normally aren't funny, but McFarlane's Halo Anniversary piece is good for a chuckle. Better still, it'll also be sold as part of a three-pack, each figure depicting Master Chief as he's appeared in the three main Halo games.
There aren't many things that marijuana users say weed can't make better. Take this guy I used to know. His name was Mike. Every once in a while we'd hang out with a few other guys and play ridiculous amounts of Halo 2. Occasionally Mike would light up during our fragfests.
With the ten year anniversary of the release of the original Xbox shooter Halo looming, Titan Books is preparing to publish a collection of art from the series.
This is veteran actor Jeff Steitzer. He's done Broadway. Law & Order. Oh, and if you've ever played Halo, chances are you've heard his voice more than Master Chief's, Sgt. Johnson's and Cortana's combined.
Gaming has characters with memorable personalities. But Master Chief, the protagonist of the Halo series, is a total void. And there's a reason for that.
It seems like an age ago, but the whole WikiLeaks furore kicked off earlier this year with footage of American forces shooting Iraqi civilians. The offending chopper pilots were accused, appropriately, of behaving like they were playing a video game.
Color me surprised, especially since I played through the game twice and didn't notice him, but the Master Chief does appear to make a quick cameo in the end of Halo: Reach.
Microsoft sent Halo: Reach beta codes to the last dozen still playing Halo 2 more than two weeks after multiplayer support was shut off for the original Xbox. Maybe it's a hint to finally disconnect and play something else?
