Proof of auto-aim in Halo 2 for the PC

You may have heard this one before: Xbox 360 gamepad users get an unfair advantage in Halo 2 for the PC, thanks to auto-aim. Jeff Gerstmann told us all about it when he was still at GameSpot, but I’ve never seen it for myself since I don’t use Windows Vista—the only operating system that can […]

Not-so-new Halo 3 map pack is available for free download

Do any of you spend for downloadable map packs? There’s the “Legendary” map pack for Halo 3 coming out in a couple of weeks but it would cost you 800 points. This is equivalent to $10 if you live in the U.S., but if you’re based someplace else, you can consult this table for the […]

A quick review of Halo: The Flood

This review may come a bit late since the William Dietz book came out way back in 2003, but it’s something I’m used to since everything with release dates don’t come around as early where I’m from. If you’re a huge fan of the Halo series, then there’s a chance that you’ve already picked up […]

Master Chief sucks at Halo 3

It looks like Master Chief is finally pwning others in his own game. Then again, maybe it was a lucky shot. Not only was the Chief acting like a total arse in Halo 3—his spelling could use some work too.

A sequel to Perfect Dark, that’s what.

Breaking Halo news: Zac Efron is dating Master Chief

When news of High School Musical star Zac Efron showed up at the Halo 3 launch last week, we knew something was up. Combine this with the fact that Efron just ended his relationship with Musical co-star Vanessa Hudgens and you’ve got pre-diarrhea rumblings.

The excrement hit the fan when Dateline came out with a […]

Master Chief uses plasma grenades for foreplay

You think the bit about Master Chief scaring Koreans is weird? Then you haven’t seen anything yet. This time, the MJOLNIR-armored hero is getting it on with your girlfriend.

The best Halo case mod evar

Halo 3 is just a day away, and a lot of hardcore fans in North America seem to be lining up for the game. At least, those who didn’t preorder anyway. After all, lining up for a game is the best way to show everyone you’re hardcore, right?

Cliffy B. says Bioshock is his Game of the Year

Clifford Bleszinski, Epic Games’ superstar designer, loves Bioshock. Cliffy B. loves it so much that he considers it his game of the year. Not Halo 3 (which isn’t out yet as of this writing), not Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, or whatever AAA title that’s set to come out late 2007.

The designer then proceeds to […]
