It’s not about lengthy combos, super powered magical moves or awesome finishing moves (although those actually aren’t half bad). It’s about historical accuracy, like the show, right? Yeah… “Historical accuracy”… We’ll go […]

Friday, May 18, 2012 1 Comment

Before you get yourself in a tizzy about the headline, I didn’t say that’s a bad thing. Microsoft and 343 Industries announced the details for the Halo 4 Limited Edition yesterday ($99.99 MSRP. I may post more about it in the future), alongside the unveiling of the game’s Halo Infinity multiplayer experience. The Halo Infinity […]
