Each new Halo game since 2007’s Halo 3 gets some praise, then fades, and then is pointed to as a sign that the Xbox’s once-unstoppable franchise is hitting a wall. Halo 5, released in 2015, deserves a different reputation.
Just in time for next week’s 10th anniversary of Halo 3: Live Halo Or Die Trying, the folks at gaming gear makers Jinx have launched a new line of official Halo clothes and things. Things like these six-inch vinyl figures of Battle Damaged Master Chief and Night Ops Spartan Locke, for example.
Look at him. Cute as a button. Just don’t go trying to find him on yours, if you ever decide to pick one of these things up.
I was going to call "Master Chief and Arbiter (Gods Among)" by Sita Navas fan art, but the "fan" label feels cheap when applied to this Maya-style masterpiece. This is just art.
Bungie created Halo. Now they've moved on to "shared world" sci-fi shooter Destiny. That does not, however, mean they've left the past behind. It's just, um, on the back of a tower now.
Before he let himself go, Marlon Brando was pretty much the pinnacle of American masculinity. Too bad that Halo didn't come out until a few months after the actor already finished his final role in the 2001 thriller The Score, then. Because you know what he could've used 48 years earlier on the set for The Wild One? A…
Master Chief makes it look easy, doesn't he? But, it turns out that wielding the famous bladed Covenant weapon from the Xbox sci-fi FPS isn't all that graceful. Watch yourself, dude. You ain't no Spartan!
Some things are sacred to a plumber: Family, kingdom, honor. But few things are as sacred as power-ups. I pity the poor fools that try to mess with them.
Mister Chief came to us nearly 10 years ago, filling in for a Halo 2 promotional poster on the good ol' Bungie Weekly Update. "A terrible idea that snowballed out of control," says his creator. Now Mister Chief's perpetually constipated, teeth-gritting expression finds its way to an Xbox Live avatar costume.
"Draw My Life" videos have become increasingly popular on YouTube. So popular that fictional characters are picking up dry erase markers to summarize their lives for you.
Ever wonder what @Mario is up to on Twitter? How about @Sonic? Or maybe @Wario, @MarcusFenix or @MasterChief?
The White House's bullshit feel-good "We the People" initiative is, like all Internet petitions, worth the paper it is printed on.* Most of the petitions lodged there demand things the executive branch cannot effect on its own. The remainder are protest tantrums, like the secessionist fantasies a bored and distended…
On November 21, close to seven years after it launched in America, the Xbox 360 will come to Israel for the first time. To celebrate the occasion, Master Chief came out to greet Israelis and introduce the system.
It's been over ten years since the first Halo game was released, and even longer since we first laid eyes on the Master Chief. A lot has changed since then.
When Bungie was at the helm, multiplayer in the Halo games was mostly a team-oriented affair. Sure, you'd have personal stats that you could be proud of but it was the glory of a Red or Blue victory that motivated you. But, 343 Industries is making the newest Halo and things are going to be different on the…
What, you think he doesn't eat? When Master Chief is back home, propping his feet up on his coffee table and playing rounds of Halo, he needs to munch on some Doritos, too.
Don't argue with it. Just let the beauty of this amazingly hilarious Master Chief cosplay sink in to your memory, to be recalled at a really inappropriate moment when you should not be laughing. The professor/your boss will understand. The dog might, too.
343 Industries, you so sneaky. We've already noticed that the Microsoft division tasked with the future of all things Halo debuted the new look of the sci-fi shooter series' hero at Toy Fair 2012. And the Chief's new duds are quite different. Leaner, meaner and perhaps more aerodynamic.
