Has Halo Advertising Gone Too Far?


I was at Super Target yesterday grocery shopping, when I came across this 2 liter bottle. Come on now, has Mountain Dew went too far with the Halo 3 advertisement on the bottle? I wonder if it's the same taste, or a different flavor.... Stay tuned for details!
***********************************
Inspired by the most anticipated game release of the year, Halo® 3, Mountain Dew has created a limited-time only beverage called Mountain Dew Game Fuel.

It's Dew with an invigorating blast of citrus cherry flavor and more caffeine for maximum intensity. Game Fuel will give you an edge on the competition because it's cranked up to keep you going. Game Fuel is available in stores nationwide for only 12 weeks, starting August 13. Visit www.mountaindew.com/gamefuel to find out more.

Stop by your local 7-Eleven location to collect three limited-edition 3-D Slurpee cups, featuring Master Chief. These cups will be available in stores for a limited time starting September 1 and until supplies last. Fill these exclusive cups with the invigorating Mountain Dew Game Fuel Slurpee, only available at 7-Eleven.

Halo's Gone Gold!

Halo 3  for Xbox 360 has gone Gold! That means we delivered a final version to our internal certification group that passed all the tests and is now being whisked away to top secret manufacturing locations to be turned into retail versions of the game – and eventually packaged and sent to stores in various cases, tins and cat-helmets. We can’t wait to share it with you guys on September 25th and 26th, but we have to say thanks.

We have to say thanks to everyone at Bungie who worked so hard to make this the best game we've ever made. We have to say thanks to everyone at Microsoft who helped us make it the best game we ever made. We have to say thanks to our tireless team of artists, designers, engineers, musicians, technicians, writers, directors, producers, thinkers, administrators, ninjas, specialists, gorillas, webmasters and pimps. We’re a family and we made this game for you, our extended family. We hope you like it. Nobody deserves any more recognition than anyone else, but an extra special thanks goes out anyway, to the test team who got it to this stage, in a pool of their own sweat, tears and blood.

And of course, we wouldn't be here today without the tireless devotion of our fan community - we thank you all as well for supporting Bungie Studios in our never ending quest for World Domination and we look forward to sharing another billion+ hours together on Xbox Live when Halo 3 lands in just  a few short weeks.  The wait is almost over.

We Finished our Fight.  Your fight begins in 27 days. 

Are you ready?

Two New Halo 3 Maps





















Worlds Dumbest Criminal

Two Worlds

For all of those Bio Shock owners here is what i thought of Two Worlds the game that I bought instead of Bio Shock.

If you are a fan of RPG's then you will like this game. There are some drawbacks though, some of the voice audio is rather stupid/poor, and there is not a lot of character appearance customizations. However I just bought the game on Sunday and played it for 4 hrs straight and had a hell of a time. From what I have seen so far is awesome. The graphics are amazing there are no loading screens when moving into a town or building. Everything is done real time. The only loading that takes place is every once in a while the game will pause for a second and a disc icon comes up on the lower right screen to load something but it is very brief, and not that often. I have not played any of the multilayer yet and probably will not just because i have a game for that(Gears....and in the future Halo #3). However if you are wanting a game for exploration, fun, story, and graphics, then this game is a good game to get/rent until Halo 3 comes out.

New Falcon Chipset will Come Out Soon

The new cooler 65nm "Falcon" chip is being manufactured as we speak and is due out in te next few months; probably just in time for Christmas. Unfortunately the new Halo 3 Edition Xbox will not come with the new chip but it will come with an added heat sink and a quieter BenQ DVD-drive.

There have been reports of an even smaller 45nm chip that will come out in late 2008.

I thought this was hilarious. The best part is near the end when Bob Saget jumps out of nowhere and tells what he does to get friends on myspace.

Flame Thrower - 13itches



Can anyone say smoke 'em if you got one!!!

This looks like a lot of fun.

Here are the details from Bungie.net

M7057 / Defoliant Projector

Official Designation: M7057/DP
Length (o/a): 116.8 cm (46 in.)
Weight (empty): 45.8 kg (101 lbs)
Weight (loaded): 55.5 kg (122.5 lbs)
Cartridge: Pyrosene-V
Max. effective range: 13.4 meters (44 ft)
Magazine capacity: 9 x three-second bursts

Unit Replacement Cost: cR. 1,520.00

Description:
The M7057/DP is a standard chemical flamethrower, which projects and ignites a stream of a volatile, semi-liquid fuel. Flamethrowers are cumbersome and relatively difficult to use (psychologically as well as mechanically).

Observations:
Referring to the M7057/DP as a weapon[1] is a bit of a misnomer as the dee pea in its nomenclature indicate that it is a defoliant projector—to be used to rapidly clear away heavy foliage for in-theater construction projects and to destroy new or persistent growth from emplaced and/or hardened military assets. That having been said; despite being all but obsolete militarily its effectiveness as a psychological weapon is undeniable—unfortunately the psychological effect is a double-edged sword.

Remarks:
“makes short work of weeds and thickets—but I wouldn’t carry one into combat. Not on your life.”

“I can see where it would be real effective in ousting dug in troops, but you aren’t gonna be making any friends using it that way.”

“I don’t see where carrying around a big can of super-flammable stuff right next to my xxxx is such a good idea.”

“You know those things ship with a cart, right? You aren’t expected to carry them anywhere… they are not a weapon that you use on people… not even on alien people.”

“I hate me some baby kongs, and I will kill every man Jack of ‘em that I see, but I don’t think I could burn ‘em—best to draw the line somewhere and that seems like it.”

“Foxtrots die pretty quick once you put the fire to ‘em. We ought ‘a burn ‘em all. Low-life bastards. Burn all those low-life alien foxtrots.”

“Gotta get too close for it to be any use offensively—if you’re gonna use it as a weapon best to use it in a defensive role—fill up passages and weak-points in your perimeter with fire.”

“It takes a certain kind’a lunatic to use a flamethrower… all I’m sayin’.”



[1] That the M7057/DP has been frequently pressed into service as a primitive energy weapon of sorts is a distressing but irrefutable fact. It is one in a very small number of items available to UNSC personnel that remotely earmarks the user for a full battery of psychological tests.


Oh the HUMANITY!!!

Come on Sept 25th...........

REAL THE DARK KNIGHT TEASER TRAILER

Halo 3 campaign mode to feature online co-op for four


Bungie confirms that upcoming sci-fi shooter will let gamers play through story as Master Chief, the Arbiter, and two new Covenant Elites.

While Bungie gave the world a good look at the upcoming Halo 3's multiplayer battles in the form of a hugely populated beta program, it has been much more tight-lipped about its plans for the sci-fi first-person shooter's campaign mode. Today the studio confirmed a much-speculated piece of information about the campaign mode, stating on its Web site that it will indeed support online cooperative multiplayer for up to four players.

Since there's only one Master Chief, the four-player online campaign mode will include three more playable characters: Halo 2's Arbiter and two of his fellow Covenant Elites. All characters will play identically, but the Elites will wield carbines instead of battle rifles. That's an awful lot of firepower to throw into the same situations as the game's single-player campaign, but Bungie says it's addressing the various gameplay issues it creates.

"You're going to want to play co-op as hard as you can stomach it," Bungie's Web site warns. "We'd certainly recommend Legendary, but we'll be revealing some more ways to make the game more interesting and challenging for multiple players in the very near future."

The online cooperative mode will support the game's film-saving functions, but gamers will not be able to join in midgame. Players will have to congregate in a lobby first, from which point they can pick up the campaign at any saved checkpoint. As in previous games, players will have the option of cooperative split-screen play, but it is limited to two people. However, once matched, a pair can complete its foursome through system link or by going online.
