This year at E3 Bungie was not the "center of attention" with a new game. They did, however, command the same attention armed with the upcoming Multiplayer Pack. The excitement surrounding the new levels was apparent as the Bungie booth was consistantly the most busy of the XBOX booths.

While talking to Sketch I learned that some fans had been neglecting the rest of E3 and giving all their attention to just this attraction. "Some kids have been here for five or six hours!" he explained, "It is awesome!" The guys at Bungie showed their loyalty to their fans by making personal appearances to show off the new levels, explaining the layouts and functions of the maps [i]hands on[/i] to players. I was fortunate enough to meat the team and ask them a few questions. My associate took a picture and I blame him for its outcome. [IMG]http://photos10.flickr.com/15319725_325ee9ba1c.jpg[/IMG] [b]Ender- [/b]How have the new levels taken advantage of interactive functionality like the gate in Zanzibar? [b]Bungie-[/b] We know how popular things like that are in maps that include them and wanted to add such elements into the newer maps. For instance, in "Relic" the offensive team in CTF can open a two-way portal that opens directly into the base via a switch located underneath the Forerunner structure." [b]Ender-[/b]"Can we expect any other updates or downloads for H2in the future?" [b]Bungie-[/b]"Of course. We plan on updating the matchmaking playlists on a regular bases to keep things fresh. As for new maps, we are far to busy with our current project to even think about making any other maps. Who knows though." [b]Ender-[/b]"Speaking of current projects, what do you think about good ol' Bill Gates and his statement?" [b]Bungie-[/b] *[i]laughs[/i]* We are very flattered. Its hard to believe that a man as powerful as him holds Halo in such a high regard. He places a lot of faith in us, and it's flattering." I had a chance to play the new maps twice through each and I was very impressed. The detail in is impressive and relfects the amount of work that Bungie has put into them.

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!?"
