New Shirt, New Prices, Oh My!

New Shirt, New Prices, Oh My!

The Bungie Store has been going through some changes lately and the results are finally starting to show. First off, a brand new Halo T-Shirt is now ready for purchase. This stylish black shirt features the Covenant Elite on the front and is sure to make you the envy of all your friends. However, even bigger news comes in the form of brand new pricing for everything in the store. After much deliberation, we have decided to remove the existing 7th Column discount in favor of a universal discount that can be enjoyed by everyone. By not having to factor in a potential 40% discount on every product, we’ve been able to slash prices across the board to bring you even more bang for your buck. This is but the first of many new and exciting things to happen to the store so be sure to check back often. Happy Shopping!

The Great Debate

The Great Debate

The results of last week's Normal vs. Inverted poll are in and it couldn't have been closer. Normal wins by a hair with 450 votes while 431 of you prefer the Inverted setting. Nevertheless, this debate is sure to rage on for the foreseeable future. Word on the streets is that a couple of Floridian voters misread the poll thus dropping their beloved Inverted setting to last place. Even though Normal took the popular vote, early indications point to Inverted coming out ahead with the electorates.

The Webcam

The Webcam

Some of you may have noticed that webcam was not showing anything for last couple of days. Apparently, the Webmaster got a hold on it and did something unspeakable to it. The point is that it is happily snapping pics again now that the damage has been undone.

Twas The Night Before...

Twas The Night Before...

And the Bungie Store was in a miserable state. Our holiday present to all of you, however, is two new members of the Online Team, both of whom will be helping stuff the Bungie Store in the future. Though Lorraine has been at Bungie for quite some time, come January she's joining our team. She'll be working together with our other newest team member, Brian, aka SketchFactor. Sketch has already started a huge thread in the Underground about the Bungie Store. Feel free to chime in and be sure to welcome our newest team members! Happy holidays!

The Gallery is Back

The Gallery is Back

If you have perused our Bungie.com website recently, you may have discovered that the screenshot gallery code has been broken since we moved the site to the new server. Thanks to some detective work by Achronos, the code has been fixed with a single character change. Boy, just looking at these makes me want to play Oni again....

At long last....

At long last....

Since Marathon was released by Bungie over 7 years ago, probably the most desired feature has been internet play. Although there were hacks like using Netlink Remote to create an AppleTalk connection over the net (not unlike many of the hacks for online Halo play), it was still a hack.
Now, at the Marathon OpenSource project, our friends that have been diligently making this world a better place have brought you TCP/IP networking to Aleph One, the Marathon OpenSource project.
Although TCP/IP networking is still in its early stages, it's still usable.(TCP/IP in the OSX version only currently)

I like shiny things!

I like shiny things!

Everybody likes shiny things. We have a brand new set of features coming up tomorrow that, for the sake of argument, we shall say are shiny. They make our site go faster, allow you more sorting options for your databases, and add some behind the scenes spit and polish to the news and forums. Like I said, shiny. However, said updates will cause our site to be unavailable for about 30 minutes, starting at 10:30 am PDT on Thursday morning.

A Day In The Life...

What is it like to work at Bungie? Another comic hits close to home. As Joseph Staten recorded in his article, the trailer was finished before the sound. This was an actual embellished conversation that took place as Marty reviewed the finished visuals.
