Destiny and the Iron Banner

So, Destiny then. I’ve been fairly addicted to it for the past few months, and the Iron Banner has been one of my favourite aspects – I look forward to it rolling around every month. I can’t put my finger on exactly why I like the week of Iron Banner …

Missed the update window again…

So here is an update on a Monday. I went back to work yesterday, which wasn’t as bad as I was anticipating. Well, the department was a mess, but it wasn’t so bad as to drive me insane. I’ve started tinkering with Sony Vegas, finally editing this Super Time Force …

Halo 4: War Games

War Games – the new name for multiplayer Red vs Blue. This was always going to be the main area of the game for me, shooting guys is so much better than shooting AIs. It has a lot to live up to – the Halo series is the only First …

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary

To get me in the mood, I’m listening to the original Halo soundtrack. That’s one of the things that set Halo apart for me. The ghostly choir on the title screen. The epic, sweeping orchestra as you explore an unique world. The “we’re gonna go fuck shit up” Halo driving …

Typing and waffling

Looks like Wednesday is becoming my new update day. Due to the days I work, Monday has been designated “rest day” – coming off four days of work is quite tiring. I feel more perky and talkative on a Wednesday though, I’m more likely to want to do things like …

Forge and Arena update

Headrush, my Headlong “remix” is coming along nicely. About 50% done. I felt I needed to make the open area a bit bigger – the scale seems different in Reach. It gives vehicles more room to manoeuvre. I’ve made sure I’ve kept the different ground levels in there, so there’s …

Halos and Goblins

Halo: Reach is officially launched on Tuesday, so I thought I’d take a look back at my time with the franchise – I can hardly believe it’s been ten years! Halo It all started way back in the days of working at Game, and the launch of the original Xbox. …

Bubble-heads unite!

There I was, playing Halo 3, waiting for Matchmaking to do it’s stuff, as you do. The teams popped up, and whose was the first name I noticed, directly above mine on the blue team? Blimey, it’s only GRcade moderator The Alchemist “Tiarny” Penguin. I fired off a quick “hi …

Grifball!

Bungie’s Double XP Weekend playlist of choice this last weekend was Grifball. I adore Grifball. Created by Burnie Burns of Rooster Teeth, thanks to the wonder of Halo 3’s Forge map creation tool and the fully customisable game-types, then combined with being able to spread these around via your own …

E3 2010

I guess most of the announcements and big reveals have been made by now, so it’s safe for me to write up my thoughts on the event. I usually don’t bother with E3, but I had a bit of time on my hands this year, mostly because Jane was in …
