    Once again, hello everyone and we have some exiting news! As I wrote in my last blog about what the next books should be, we got news from Waypoint that Gallery Books and 343 Industries are pairing up to make another cannon-bases book. Enjoy!

    How should John's story end

    January 27, 2014 by Wilc0


    How should John's story end?
    Again, the information in this article was done completely by memory so it may not be completely accurate.


    John has been through a lot, with his first mission on the asteroid belt in the Eridanus system and ending so far with the battle against the Didact. Summing up all the battles he has been in shows that he has been to war countless of times and always coming out on top, sometimes at the cost of a loved one. His most famous battles were of course against the Covenant, as depicted during the Halo trilogy, a number of books and the movies Halo: Legends and Halo 4: FUD.

    My personal favourite battle of him was during Operation: FIRST STRIKE, where he really shows how good of a leader he is and how quick he thinks …

    Which vehicle is the best? Part 3: Rumble Pit
    Again, the information in this article was done completely by memory so it may not be completely accurate.

    Before I start my view on which vehicle should be considered the best vehicle out there, I would like to show you the poll results of my previous 2 articles after a similar time-frame:


    Not surprising that the top 5 are my champion vehicles while the Ghost follows at #9.

    This time, the winners of their respective categories will battle against each other while the three winners will fight it out in a Rumble Pit-style match afterwards to determine the real winner! Each vehicle will be considered to be on its own, so no group tactics; just a 1v1 battle to see which one is the best!


    These two vehic…

    Which vehicle is the best? Part 2: the Covenant
    Again, the information in this article was done completely by memory so it may not be completely accurate.

    Now it is the Covenant's turn to give us their champions! The same rules apply, no 'special’ vehicles, vehicles that cannot be driven or otherwise controlled in the Halo Games. Technically, one can control a small part of the 'Harvester' during Halo 4s Spartan Ops, but I this 'vehicle' is not up for a medal; the same counts for the Shadow, where you can only operate a turret. Even though one can drive the Anti-Air Wraith during Halo: Spartan Assault, this functions only as a normal Wraith without its huge power boost as seen during Halo 3s campaign for instance, the AA Wraith is not up for a m…

    Which vehicle is the best? Part 1: the UNSC
    Again, the information in this article was done completely by memory so it may not be completely accurate.

    Halo has a lot of vehicles, and thus I will narrow it down. I will only talk about drivable vehicles in-game. I mean vehicles of which you can control all movement, so Halo Wars/Halo: Spartan Assault vehicles are up for a medal. I will also not talk about non-combat vehicles, so no Mongooses and Troop Hogs. The exoskeletions are also not up for a medal here since they are not really vehicles. Also no 'special' vehicles, no Rhinos, drop pods, Longsword, Elephants and Mammoths. The best vehicle should not be the strongest, nor the fastest, it should be the vehicle build best for its purpose. A Wo…

    Hey there Halo fans,

    As you all know, the Champions Bundle was recently released Halo 4. Meaning that the Castle DLC playlist was removed in favour of the newer Champions Bundle DLC playlist; rendering all previous map packs we all paid so dearly for, obsolete. In this blog I'll address the issues caused by 343i's indecisiveness with playlists, and show my selection of playlists I believe need to be added to Halo 4!


    Several playlists on the current selection roster support extremely low populations, hitting minimums of below 40 players. So what's the point in keeping them? 343i have yet to release some of the Halo communities favourite playlists from Halo 3 and Halo: Reach, for what I can only speculate as a fear of over selection and server stra…

    Friendships from Multiplayer

    August 25, 2013 by Wilc0
    Friendships from Multiplayer

    This is a pretty personal story, but I think many of you can relate to this.

    There is no question that Halo is very strong in multiplayer. When Halo: Combat Evolved first came out, it was first in its field of multiplayer. Back then the technology was not as good as it is now, so the multiplayer was only possible in the same room. But still, ask any gamer between 20-30 and ask him/her where they played Halo. While not everyone may like(d) Halo, for various reasons, people in this age group probably had a friend who had Halo and invited him/her to play. I am among this last group and still have very fond memories of just gaming side-by-side.

    Nowadays, people do multiplayer separate from each other, via the internet…

    What is Halo?

    August 11, 2013 by Wilc0
    What is Halo?

    A lot of readers probably are scratching their head now wondering if Wilc0 really doesn't know about Halo? Well, maybe I do, maybe I don't, but how would YOU describe Halo? If you go the Wikipedia page the first sentence is: "Halo is a multi-billion dollar science fiction video game franchise created by Bungie and now managed by 343 Industries and owned by Microsoft Studios." Not really clarifying anything is it?

    Somewhat further it clarifies some more: "[Halo] centers on an interstellar war between humanity and a theocratic alliance of aliens known as the Covenant." So, now we know it is a very profitable science fiction video game set in interstellar space between humanity and some weird aliens? This comes close to the 'truth',…

    Tom Salta on Top Score

    July 30, 2013 by JAlbor

    Hey folks!

    I thought I would bring everyone's attention to a cool interview between Top Score and Halo: Spartan Assault Composer Tom Salta. For those who don't know, Top Score is a regular public radio show that interviews video game score creators. If you're at all into game music, I highly recommend giving it a listen. This recent podcast w/ Salta is pretty good.

    You can listen HERE.
