Halo Update

The new weekly Halo update is online, this time out it's up on Rampancy.net. The update mentions the "bummed out" reaction to the launch and subsequent un-launch of the Halo website yesterday (story), and word that they plan on making a new screenshot release available to make up for it, though they need some time to work out the conversion of what turn out to be 50-some MB TIFF files to something more net-friendly, as "Half the fun of a Halo screenshot is the ability to zoom in and see the ridiculous level of detail involved." Other current activities mentioned in the update is work on optimizing framerates, AI improvements, the multiplayer play they've been engaged in, that the dialog; music; and sounds are basically complete, a description of a bit of single-player play, and a promise that "there's more where that came from" for those who had the chance to enjoy the footage that was available for a brief time yesterday. Unbeknownst to him when he wrote that, this page on FilePlanet has that video for download, and Halo.Bungie.Org has managed to post some more of the material the MS site contained, including the site's informational text, some screenshots, and screen captures from the O'Donnell/Staten interview.

there's one alternative you people are forgetting...

I wonder how long it will be after the xbox comes out, that an emulator will be available? ;-P

I'm guessing not too long, considering the similarites between the xbox and PC.. a bit of work getting around the fixed hardware, but then it's all DX8.1 baby

thats what im spraying- great... i hope they do come out with it... but i wont be payin for it! hehe i mean they are traitors to the PC community- and even thought you can find some old quote saying "yes we are going to still make it for the PC", you can also find quotes saying "we still havent even begun to think about it for the PC" so it wont be anything "new" or different, if it does go PC, and i definitly wont be paying for it anyways-

By the time it comes out if ever, hehe I would rather play Tribes 2 or Operation FlashPoint or Return to Wolfenstein or anything but Halo. They screwed us PC user's, so screw them

This is what's wrong with the industry today! I only hope for good games to come out, no matter what platform.
