X10: I'm sick and tired of Halo, win me back Bungie


3:40 PM on 02.16.2010



It was love at first sight when I hopped in a Warthog and was taking out Covenant Elite soldiers with every drive-by opportunity on the Forerunner ring world of Halo: Combat Evolved. With Grunts to my left and Jackals to my right, Master Chief and I held hands running through the flowery fields of death, destruction, and florescent blood soaked walls -- spewing out of the Covenant's finest.

With each Halo sequel announcement, Bungie became my haven for all things geek, and I slept soundly knowing that Master Chief and Cortana will soon return to "Finish The Fight." That was then, and this is now.

When Halo Reach was first announced at Microsoft's E3 2009 press conference, I let out a loud sigh, and dipped into my seat waiting for the world to end. With Halo 3: ODST months away, and yet another Halo IP in the horizon, I was tired, frustrated, and wanted nothing more to do with faceless marines and large breasted computer A.I. I'm sure I was quiet the surprise for Creative Director on Halo Reach -- Marcus Lehto, when I confronted him about my "hate" towards all things Halo.

As we recently learned, Sunset Overdrive lets players protect their genitals with the head of a green kangaroo, which is a very silly idea. But is that silly enough, in this post-Saints Row world? The answer is "who cares?" because there are also Hawaiian Shirts and Hawaiian Shirts are my jam.more

Let's get away for the weekend, just you and me. I know this little place on the coast. Nice restaurant, view of the water from the cliff side. We could probably sleep in the car in the parking lot and hang out on the beach a...more

What's Up? Our panel at PAX Prime 2014, Far Cry 4, Destiny Beta, Vietnam & a ferret

Max and I thought it would be a good idea to keep everyone posted on our goings-on. This was spurned by many, many people wondering why we've been filming in Max's actual kitchen. We answer this question, and some y'all have...more
