PC Gamer reviews Halo PC
Posted: 1:07 pm by Wolfy -
Just got my new Holiday 2003 issue of PC Gamer (my Bible btw). Freaky enough, without noticing, just opened the magazine to a random page. Just so happens that random page was the Halo PC review (o.O).

The review in a nutshell (Final Verdict):

HIGHS: Fabulous, frenetic outdoor combat; many memorable moments; phenomenal character detail.
LOWS: Some system woes; repetitive indoor levels with sterile look; no save-anywhere option.
BOTTOM LINE: Halo is an absorbing, entertaining, and memorable action shooter.

Score: 85% (Excellent)

You can find the rest of this article in the Holiday 2003 edition of PC Gamer magazine.

Halo Worldwide Champion
Posted: 2:01 pm by Wolfy -
Do You Have What it Takes to be the Halo Worldwide Champion? Enter the "Halo for Windows Worldwide Championship"

Huge Prizes at Stake from ATI, Gateway and Alienware

Microsoft Game Studios, iGames and EB Games today announced signups have officially begun for the Halo® for Windows® Worldwide Championship. The international event will pit thousands of top Halo players from around the world against each other for a chance at some big-time prizes; after the dust settles, only one player will emerge to be crowned the world's best Halo gamer. For information about registration and a list of participating iGames centers in North America, visit http://www.igames.org/Events.asp?Event=1596, any local EB Games store or online at http://www.ebgames.com/ebx/ads/promos/halotournament/.

The Halo for Windows Worldwide Championship is truly a global event, spanning over 134 iGames centers across five continents, including locations in the United States, Canada, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Japan, Taiwan, Australia and United Kingdom. Starting November 15, each region will host qualifying tournament rounds to determine a regional champ. The resulting finalists will then fly to Los Angeles in early 2004 for the ultimate showdown to determine who is the best Halo player on the planet.



Prizes for the worldwide finals include 16 RADEON™ 9800 PRO graphics cards by ATI® . The top three finalists will walk away with an Alienware® Aurora™ gaming rig from Alienware and AMD. And of course the top winner will be crowned Halo Worldwide Champion with all bragging rights included. In addition, the top player from North America (US and Canada) will walk away with a Gateway® 42" Plasma TV and a Gateway® 710G Gaming PC. More information on how to enter one of the three qualifying round events, plus tournament rules, can be found at http://igames.org/tournaments/MiniNewsView.asp?MiniID=3&AssetID=24.

New Playlists Up!
Posted: 5:12 pm by Jag - Halo 2
The new playlists for Halo 2 have been up for a while if you've missed them! And they're a blast!

Team Action Sack: This playlist is what you should be playing if you're looking for a chaotic and unpredictable experience! Some games include Rocket CTF, or SWAT Fiesta, Ninja Assault - and much more! These games were submitted by the fans - I submitted Invisaball a while ago, and now you can play it in Matchmaking! Bungie does listen to the fans!

Rumble Armory: This is also an action-packed playlist, abiet less insane! This playlist pits you against up to 7 other people, with games that feature a single weapon set - games include Brutes, Swords, Sentinal Beams, and other similar games! Give it a try!

6 vs 6 Battle: This is basically something to fit between Team Skirmish and Big Team - 6 vs 6 battles using a mixture of the Big Team playlist and Team Skirmish.

Additional Changes: The Head to Head and Major Clanmatch playlists are gone - forever... Minor Clanmatch has been renamed 'Clanmatch' and now supports up to 5 people, but your Minor Clanmatch ranks remain intact. Team Snipers is now ranked - and your 'invisible' rank is now visible! If you played a little, you may be a 5 or 6, but some people are in the upper 20's! Big Team now supports only 7 or 8 players per team, to make way for 6 vs 6 Battle.

...a pretty significant update, to say the least.

Team ActionSack?
Posted: 3:12 pm by Jag - Weekly Whats Update
Bungie finally posted another WWU - and this one contains some very, very important information regarding the new playlists:

Quote:
~Major Clanmatch and Head to Head have been removed.

~Minor Clanmatch has received a change in configuration. It will now be called Clanmatch and will allow for team of 4-5 clan members each. Your Minor Clanmatch ranks will persist to the new Clanmatch playlist.

~Two new unranked playlists have been added, Rumble Armory and Team ActionSack.

~6v6 Team Battle has been added as a ranked playlist featuring team sizes of 5-6 players each.

~Big Team Battle now supports only larger team sizes of 7-8 players each.

~Team Snipers is now a ranked playlist and has a total of 15 maps. Your hidden rank will now be displayed.

~WE DID NOT WIPE ANY STATS, STOP LISTENING TO RUMORS! CALM DOWN!


Important information indeed! The WWU also contains a little bit of an FAQ on how to change your 360 theme, and some stuff about the Halo Movie... Read it here!

Xbox 360 launch!
Posted: 9:11 pm by Jag - Xbox
Well, the 360 went on sale early this morning to eager fans - one guy in Seattle camped out for four days! Frankie posted a brief retrospective on Bungie.net. Several members of ours have 360's - I'll try to get an interview of someone to see how it is...

Have fun!
