Those of you saddened by the death of the Halo film will want to read Variety's report on the next live-action project for the franchise, Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn. It's a five-installment video series that will play on Machinima and Halo Waypoint ahead of the game's release this November.

The story will center around Master Chief and tie in with Halo 4's plot, as one might expect, but the hope is to also bring in newcomers who aren't quite so familiar with the established fiction. 343 Industries director of franchise business development Matt McCloskey says this is "not just a marketing piece."

"We wanted to go way beyond that and transform this live-action exploration from advertising into a full standalone product that people will enjoy." Although a big budget doesn't guarantee greatness, it's interesting to note that Forward Unto Dawn will be Microsoft's "largest investment" in live action to date.

The real life version of the Halo sword kind of sucks

Master arms maker Man at Arms is back, this time taking on the Halo Elite energy sword. The concept looks cool in the game, but it kind of sucks in real life as it's not really practical. Look at how floppy it is! It will still cut a fool, you just got to wiggle it around a little to really get in deep. It'll look cool mounted on a wall or something at least. more
