Review: Halo 4: King of the Hill Fueled by Mountain Dew

I'll admit to not being the world's biggest Halo fan, so it took me by surprise to find out that Microsoft had changed Halo 4's name since I last saw it at E3, deciding instead to call it Halo 4: King of the Hill Powered by Mountain Dew.&nb...

This has to be the definitive Halo 4 multiplayer video

Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn part two released

The first video from Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn was a bit slow, but that's not entirely unexpected given the way this content is cut up into weekly installments. Today's part two was a step in the right direction, I thought. Those of you wh...
