Halo chief would 'love' a Halo without shooting

I think we can all agree Halo 5 is great, even if the gameplay gets in the way of the story, but I still can't help but imagine a game in the series without all that pesky shooting weighing it down.  Luckily, it seems Halo franchise di...

Who wants a Master Chief helmet covered in crystals?

Here's something I never thought I'd see: a Master Chief helmet covered with 25,000 Swarovski crystals. "A one-of-a-kind Master Chief helmet is up for auction for fans who want to own the unique memorabilia," states the eBay listin...

Review: Halo 5: Guardians

Halo really grabbed me back in 2001. I had just won an Xbox from a Taco Bell contest (no joke), and I was getting ready to sell it when a friend told me about a little old sci-fi shooter from Bungie. After playing Halo at a d...

Stream the full Halo 5 soundtrack this week

Lately, my background noise of choice for work has been the ocean. There are enough recordings available that you can afford to get real picky, real fast. I like the sound of distant waves crashing, not that distracting up-close sloshing. T...

Get the gang back together for Halo 5's Spartan Companies

Halo 5: Guardians has clans, but that's not what they're called. They are "Spartan Companies." You can start your own group and recruit up to 99 others, or join an existing one. Either way. Each company has private forums, as well as stat t...

Halo 5's day one update is 9GB, still not as bad as expected

Like prize fighters, the heavyweights of the holiday release season all weigh in before their turn in the spotlight. And, they're called heavyweights for a reason, as their storage capacity requirements tip the scales more often than not. H...

Get free Halo 5 DLC for watching ten short videos

Most microtransactions ask that you trade real-world money for small chunks of video game content. A Halo 5 pre-release microtransaction promotion doesn't require your money, however; it requires your time. Fortunately, it's not m...

Halo 5 requires up to 60 GB of hard drive space

It's probably time to start clearing up space on your Xbox One's hard drive. Halo 5: Guardians may have just went gold the other day, but copies of 343 Industries' upcoming shooter are already finding their way onto the streets. And, accord...

Pretty good Halo marketing, Microsoft

A few days ago, Microsoft had a Halo 5 mural painted on a building in London. This video shows the creation process. It's nice, as these things tend to be -- at least as nice as possible when it's Master Chief's head splayed across th...

When Master Chief dies, humanity gets real sad

Whether it's true or not, ONI is reporting that Master Chief has died in the line of duty. It's not unlikely, as our helmeted hero certainly has had his fair share of bullets and grenades lobbed at him. Frankly, he's been pushing his luck ...

Duh: Halo 6 is in development, according to developer 343

Oh hey, Halo 5 isn't out yet, and it looks like Halo 6 is in development. This is probably surprising to no one, since this is how the AAA cycle is handled these days, though it's always interesting to hear an exact confirmation so you...

Halo 5's grunts are so adorable when they're sleeping

We've spent well more than a decade conditioned to abhor The Covenant. Every time we see them, everything immediately dissolves into an all-out firefight. There's no love loss at all. But, maybe those guys aren't so bad -- especially the G...

Halo 5: Guardians has some new toys but a familiar feel

Master Chief, Cortana, Grunts, Elites and the UNSC, all names that should sound familiar to Halo fans and fans of gaming alike. Before we had "Guardians," there was just evolved combat in the original Halo: Combat Evolved, which released ...
