Meet The Team Behind Halo: Reach

Wait...how'd they get past Jerome!?

Turns out we gave Game Informer an all access pass.  Want to see some of what they saw?  Hit the link below.  Might want to bookmark the site, too.  We hear they have more Halo: Reach coverage teed up.

Meet The Team Behind Halo: Reach

"Bungie's studio in Redmond Kirkland, Washington is home to a wide variety of gaming industry talent. Some have been around since the first Halo game, while others will feature Reach as the first title on their resume. Creative director Marcus Lehto has been around long enough to remember when it was an RTS game, while executive producer Joseph Tung joined the team after sending the company a screenshot of his Halo 2 beta stats. Take a look at the video below to learn more about the team behind Halo: Reach."

Greenskull's Randomtage

Wins, fails, wheelies, and fun.

Greenskull gets random with his shiny new capture card.  Apparently, the ending moments got left on the cutting room floor.  What made it in: the denizens of Xbox LIVE.  Jump in, but watch your step.

'Fury of the Noob 3' - Halo 3 Montage

Lots of shiny medals and marvelous snipes.

Sloppy plays?  This dude should sit in on some of my online scraps.  I make fools look way worse than this.  This?  This is good.  If you don't think so yourself, argue about it like a petulant child in the comments!

"This is a Halo 3 montage from Red Bull Sniper entitled, 'Fury of the Noob 3.' It features a mix of MLG and non MLG gameplay and despite some sloppy plays, it's pretty darn impressive nonetheless. Enjoy!"

Duardo isn't just our most handsome and intelligent forumgoer, he's also quite astute.  As such, he's dug up a few interesting community tales worthy of celebration.  I'd tell him to get back to his studies, but he's just so darned cute.  How can we tell him not to use the news feed?

Topping the Charts in 2009

Tooting Halo 3's horn.

Turns out tales of Halo 3's demise have been greatly exaggerated. In the midst of a glut of great games in yet another banner year for Xbox LIVE, our old gal did her best to put on a good show. Seems you liked what you laid eyes on. Halo 3 claimed the top spot for the third year running - an accomplishment for our team, no doubt, but also a testament to the tenacity of the Seventh Column. Halo 3: ODST also makes a strong showing, even without a traditional multiplayer offering. 

Once again, we need to say thanks for playing! We couldn't have done it without you. Literally.

'The Grunts of Firefight' - ODST Machinima

KeenArnor15 writes:

What are the Covies up to when ODST's aren't killing 'em?

This is a strange little machinima filled with innuendo, adult humor, and pretty odd voice overs.  If you're into that sort of thing, tune in.  If you're not, don't come crying to me that you want seven and half minutes of your life back!

"This is what the different Covenant races are up to when they aren't under attack, simple enough eh? I got this idea after watching theater clips of different Firefight battles, and I found out that the Grunts, Brutes, etc don't really do much when you aren't fighting them. They pretty much just wait for you, which made me wonder what was going on that entire time. This is my rendition of what they are up to, hope you all enjoy it!"

But we're gonna blab anyway.  Astute observers over at HBO noticed that a good group of Bungie dudes are slated to rock the house at this year's GDC in March.  Might seem like it's a long way off, but you should still mark your calendars so you don't miss out.  To facilitate, HBO's compiled a handy dandy list covering the who, the what, and the when.
