Halo Music Mash Up Madness
Posted by Frankie at 4/20/2006 5:57 PM PDT

In a day chock full of bangin' choons, (see THIS STORY from earlier) it's fitting that we end the day with another musical update - only this one is way more with the hippety hop. To cut a long story short, Sumthing Else Music Works, Inc. today launches the Halo 2 Volume Two Soundtrack Mash Mixer Contest to celebrate the upcoming release of Halo 2 Original Soundtrack Volume Two in stores on April 25 th .

The contest runs on the Global Gaming League (GGL) online gaming network at http://h2v2.ggl.com and offers Halo music fans the unique opportunity to mash-up downloadable mixes from Halo 2 Original Soundtrack Volume Two and submit their remixes online to win special prizes.

You can also use the site to preview some of the music from Volume 2, and even purchase individual tracks! Bonus! This also helps keep Marty in Bling, Rims and Whistle Tips.

To get a head start on the competition, registered users are provided with a music “mash-up” mixer designed and supplied by www.pcdj.com that will allow you to mix and remix the Halo 2 Volume 2 soundtrack in real-time. The user will be able to match beats, cross fade, loop, DJ and record the finished remix live. Exclusive downloadable ‘Stem Mixes’ will be available from the Halo 2 Volume 2 soundtrack courtesy of Bungie Studios’ Audio Director Marty O’Donnell.

New stem mixes will be added to the website on a frequent basis so that fans can mash-up their favorite Halo 2 Volume 2 music tracks. The website also offers a selection of optional musical treatments ranging from break beat to deep house. Submissions will be voted on by the community and a panel of celebrity gamers, composers and musicians will review and select the winners. Special prizes range from Xbox 360 systems and PCDJ Pro-DJ equipment to a signed Fender guitar from veteran music producer and Sumthing Else label founder Nile Rodgers.

The Halo 2 Volume Two soundtrack mash mixer contest is promoted by Sumthing Else Music Works, the industry leader for licensing and distributing video game soundtracks, and the Global Gaming League (GGL) with support from Bungie Studios. The website ( http://h2v2.ggl.com ) was designed and developed by Intellectual Alchemy (IA) and the Global Gaming League, and the music mix player is provided by Visiosonic Ltd.

Halo 2 is still going strong!

Looks like the Xbox LIVE team has yet to flip the switch. Halo 2 is still online and operational. If you're looking to get some last minute games in, now's the time - there's no telling when it's going down!

Walshy's 2nd - Halo 2 Montage 

Posted by urk at 4/15/2010 9:19 AM PDT

Goodbye to you.


"This is the amazing Walshy's second montage on youtube. No description needed, but I'll give one anyway. Walshy is an amazing Halo 2 player, and is on one of the best teams, Final Boss, with players like him, Ogre 1, Ogre 2, and Strongside. This montage is a very honest montage with great editing and gameplay. Many snipes, sticks, multikills, and no scopes etc. I hope you enjoy it and leave a comment for me to read!?"
