NECA's Master Chief motorcycle helmet is cool, but you might look like a dork in it

After purchasing the Halo 3 Legendary Edition and thinking the replica of Master Chief's helmet would be large enough to fit over my head, you can imagine how disappointed I was when I realized it would only house a copy of ...

Tuesday Newsday: Destiny, Halo, GTA V and Emoji
by Max Scoville



Here's some very flaccid news in the wake of E3 -- Destiny's Alpha is over, with a Beta next month. The game'll be a Sony exclusive in Japan. The new dude from Halo 5: Guardians has been named Agent Locke, and he'll be introduced in the Nightfall series. Capcom is essentially up for sale, kinda, sorta, and Nintendo's selling more Wii U's than you might've thought. Ubisoft apparently nerfed Watch Dogs' PC capabilities, and GTA V on PS4, PC, and Xbox One looks great and will have hammerhead sharks. Oh yeah and there's new Emoji. What? Emoji's sort of a video game.

Microsoft reveals Halo: The Master Chief Collection, its biggest HD bundle ever photo
Microsoft reveals Halo: The Master Chief Collection, its biggest HD bundle ever
by Brett Makedonski

Microsoft has said as recently as a few months ago that we'll see more Halo in 2014. It turns out that the next installment in Xbox's flagship franchise isn't so much a progression of the series as it is a retelling of the canon with a makeover. This will come in the form of the Halo: The Master Chief Collection, a tetralogy consisting of Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4.

The Master Chief Collection, as the name suggests, serves to tell the story of Master Chief before it's continued in 2015's Halo 5: Guardians. It will be available only on Xbox One on November 11, 2014, and will retail for $59.99. Included with the package is access to watch all the episodes of the Halo: Nightfall series as they release, and entry into the Halo 5 multiplayer beta which will take place in December 2014.

Xbox One's free Games with Gold are now available to download
by Brett Makedonski

We've known for a little while now that Xbox One was finally going to be included in Microsoft's continuing Games with Gold program beginning in the month of June. We just didn't know when in June that was going to take effect. Apparently, the answer is June 3.

Right now, both Max: The Curse of Brotherhood and Halo: Spartan Assault are free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. They can be downloaded via the console or on Xbox.com. Remember though: Regular Games with Gold rules don't apply to Xbox One titles. You have to maintain an active Gold subscription to be able to keep them.

Microsoft announces Halo 5: Guardians, set for fall of 2015
by Brett Makedonski

Microsoft and 343 Industries have revealed that the next installment in Master Chief's continuing saga will be Halo 5: Guardians. It is scheduled to only come to Xbox One, and is slated for a fall of 2015 release window.

This will be the first new entry in the Halo series on Microsoft's new console, and as such, Halo 5: Guardians is being built from the ground up specifically for Xbox One. According to 343 Industries, a new engine was created for the game which gives the developers more power and capacity to work with. This will result in a title that runs at 60 frames per second and is "massive."

However, it doesn't sound like Halo 5: Guardians is all that Microsoft has in mind for Halo in the near future. Bonnie Ross, the 343 Industries general manager, noted that a journey "definitely begins in 2014 with a giant leap, rather than one small step." She added that more information will be revealed at the June 9 Xbox E3 press conference, and that 343's "confident that Halo fans will be pretty excited about the special plans in store."
