The days before major gaming industry events are, in many ways, totally insane. As we prepare to show you new things, last-minute finishing touches are made with extreme care and caution. Teams of 343’ers stand huddled around one another’s desks, determining which images, scenes, and features will be shown for the first time. We argue over typefaces and screenshots, add last-minute reveals, and reiterate until we’ve got something great to share with all of you. Up until the last minute, we’re continually asking ourselves about the best ways to show you the new experiences that lie ahead. Continue reading

Halo Toy Review: Bearbrick Master Chief figure

The Bearbrick line is not something I’m into. However, since they just put out a Master Chief figure, I decided to check out that one. The following is my video review of the fig.

Was it worth it? Well, for a one-off fig coming from China, yeah. It’s not something I would do all the time however. If they made a Cortana Bearbrick, I’d probably get that and stop there.

Do any of you have this figure also? If not, do you plan on getting it? Let me know.

Today marks 117 days until the Master Chief Collection comes out!

What makes this even more special for me is that it’s also Veterans Day. As a NAVY vet, that day and Memorial Day hold special meaning for me.

On that note, look for news hopefully soon regarding a partnership of sorts with a gaming veterans organization.

In the meantime, long live 117!
