Halo news back Tuesday, February 19, 2013 Halo news forward

Revisiting a 10-year-old talk
Wow, was THIS a blast from the past... in more ways than one! BOLL stopped by (!!!) to point out that a 2003 GDC talk by Jaime Griesemer, Marty O'Donnell, and Mat Noguchi (and Hamilton Chu!) was made available in video form. Back in 2006, Gamasutra released the audio, and soon after Jaime provided us with the slides... but this is the first time the video has been made available for free. Go watch!

If you've got a jailbroken iPhone 4S, davidfuchs has created a pretty gorgeous Forerunner-like theme for you - check it out. (Louis Wu 14:35:31 UTC) (permalink)


HBO Forum Card Game - a look at what almost was
pete_the_duck stopped in to announce the final state of his HBO Forum Card Game project, with descriptions, pictures, and a Schooly D-supplied video. (Save Schooly's bandwidth and watch our slightly smaller version here.) I'm sad, now, that this will never really see the light of day... but I'm pretty pleased that pete was willing to share!

Visualizing the Halo Universe: Round 7
Postmortem has announced another round of his Visualizing the Halo Universe competition (I hesitate to call it a contest, because there are no prizes, but I LOVE seeing what people come up with) - swing by to read all the details! You've got a couple of weeks to show off your vision of what the Queen of a Yanme'e (Halo 2/3/Reach Drone) colony might look like. Get to sketchin'! (Louis Wu 14:05:37 UTC) (permalink)


Majestic Map Pack Gameplay
CyReN found four videos showing gameplay on new the maps included in the Majestic map pack - one of the videos even shows off a new game type called Infinity Rumble. These maps look great - Landfall kind of reminds me of Halo 3's Longshore. Go watch! (colindosaj 09:16:31 UTC) (permalink)

Polygon posted an article detailing the collaborative development between 343i and Certain Affinity on the Majestic map pack. It provides some interesting insight into how the two studios communicate ideas. Thanks, Hypertrooper. (colindosaj 09:03:39 UTC) (permalink)
