All About Halo

Some recent news in the world of Halo. For all of those who have no idea what I am talking about, Halo is the famous FPS (first-person shooter) game for the XBox. And its sequal, Halo 2, was even more popular, making $125 million dollars in its first 24 hours! Anyways, using this popularity, they (the makers of the game) decided to allow a movie to be made. As of right now, the script has been written and they are aiming for a summer 2007 release. Funny side note: when the writers finished with the script, they had two people dressed up in the armor deliver the script to the studio. Needless to say the lady working at the front desk was a little miffed when she saw these two guys walk into the building.

No new news concerning the next game, Halo 3. But it is looking more and more likely that XBox is planning on releasing the game the same day that Sony launches its next generation system (PS3). And I know which one I will be in line for! A dastardly move but very smart business sense. But what else would you expect from Microsoft?

And how could I mention Halo without talking about one of the best internet sites out there, Red vs Blue. If you have never heard of this either, I feel bad for you. There is a direct link to this site from this blog so I highly recommend going there and checking it out. Well, after a very long wait (not really but it feels long) season 4 begins August 29th! That's right, in less than a week more hilarity will ensue. Ah, wonder of wonders!!

I hope the makers of RvB had a hand in the movie... otherwise, I hope they stay pretty close to the actual original story - movies that 'spin off' the story but are not really related usually suck.
