Charity Fragathon…cool idea!

Great idea from Chris Williams and the Twin Cities XNA User Group: The Twin Cities XNA User Group is throwing their first ever charity event! Admission to this event is $10 (ten bucks!!) and that covers entry into what just might be the biggest Halo 3 tournament you’ve ever seen. We’ll also have a room…

The Elite Handheld Gaming System

OK, so perhaps “handheld” is a bit of an exaggeration, but this XBOX 360 laptop mod is nothing short of brilliant. Would be a hoot to crack that puppy open on a plane. Definitely the work of someone with far too much time on their hands. But way cool nonetheless. Includes high-def 720p display, the…

Halo/Firefly Convergence

One other thing I noticed while watching the Halo 3 credits…the voice cast is pretty impressive. Among others, from character actor Keith David, to perennial bad buy Terence Stamp, it also includes the best damn spaceship captain ever to grace TV, none other than Nathan Fillion of the late, lamented Firefly (as an aside, Serenity…

Master Chief Follow-up

No, I’m not going to tell you how the game ends. If you want to know, play it through, and Finish the Fight. But I did take the advice of Ralph in Chicago, and played through to the end again from the Rally Point Alpha save point, and waited through the credits (which were nicely…

Master Chief...is he, or isn't he?

Hmm…I’m undecided: My son and I are having an argument as to the fate of Master Chief… Is he or isn’t he? (I won’t say more to avoid spoiling it if you haven’t finished it yet). I say he isn’t (There’s no way… The quote “If only it were so easy…” and that there’s no…

Does this feel familiar? Of…

The Tech - Volume 127, Issue 41

This is very cool, but I’m pretty sure that Master Chief doesn’t wear shoes like that: photo by TungShen Chew In recognition of the release of Halo 3, a highly anticipated video game by Microsoft and Bungie, MIT hackers adorned the John P. Harvard statue, in Harvard Yard, with a Spartan helmet. The back of…

Halo 3 Rocks

OK, so I suppose it’s no surprise. But after a couple of days of owning it, I am completely impressed with Halo 3. The first day I played through a good portion of campaign mode (on Normal…I’ll surely try a harder level in the future). As suggested by the recent Wired Magazine article, it’s clear…
