Bungie Releases Trailer–New Halo 3 Campaign for Jan. 09?

September 26, 2008

Bungie restarted the countdown that was aborted during E3 this week, culminating in the release of a trailer video that rumor has it is the teaser for a campaign expansion for Halo 3. Joystiq reported on some clever fans who pieced the information from the video’s description on Live and from freeze framing the video […]

What is the Sound of 5000 Knuckles Cracking?

August 28, 2008

While looking up photos for some blog posts on Google Images, I stumbled across a YouTube video of one of my absolute favorite moments from last years “make a strip” panel.  I found out that it’s a PAX tradition to have everyone in the theater crack their knuckles at the same time.  Disgusting?

August 27, 2008

October 30, 2007

Joystiq has a really great post (via 1up’s Karen Chu) explaining how to make a Weighted Companion Cube for yourself this Halloween.  At this point, it may be too late, but man, it’s pretty much the awesomest-costume-idea-that-no-one-will-get that I’ve ever heard of.  If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then you probably havn’t finished […]

Omegathon Slideshow

October 26, 2007

Arlo Midgett was given the dubious task this August of documenting PAX 07’s Omegathon, among other things.  He was there at every stage of the competition, snapping pictures (some of which you have seen here on the blog) and putting together a really great slideshow of the event that was shown at the final round between Ryan and Ben–it comes complete […]
