Holy geekgasmic! During the Xbox One unveiling, the amazing Steven Spielberg made a cameo to announce he would be working with 343 Industries to bring forth an all new Halo television series!
Spielberg’s role in the project is still unknown, when the series will come out is unknown and even the scope of the series is unknown. So all we really know is that a Halo series is coming and Spielberg will somehow be involved, most likely as a producer.
When we know more, you geeks will know more.

My Favorite Games Of 2012: The Final Installment
Last Updated on Friday, 4 January 2013 04:58 Written by Laddie13 Friday, 4 January 2013 04:58
I have been having a tough time narrowing my favorite game of 2012 down to just one selection. It’s not that 2012 was particularly a great year in gaming but rather I have difficulty making decisions and sticking with them. Instead I’ve singled a few titles that in fact could at any given time be swapped out for my GOTY depending on my mood. Before we get to that I’d also like to mention a few other games I’ll call the runners-up.
First Call Of Duty Black Ops 2. I’m not ashamed. I’m a huge fan of the COD series and I have been from the start. Is it perfect, of course not but I’ve given up trying to figure what it is my fellow FPS fans want from the series. I enjoy the multiplayer and I’ll be playing it for months to come, probably right up until the new installment comes out. Treyarch did well tweaking MP while still giving us what made the games successful in the first place. In my opinion the best COD maps will always be the original Infinity Ward’s but since that is no longer an option Treyarch has proved itself with some of the better maps of the series.
Bungie’s First Game After Halo Is Destiny

In 2001 Bungie set the gaming world on fire. Microsoft’s first foray into the console world was unleashed and along for the ride was what has gone on to be one of the most iconic series in gaming, Halo Combat Evolved. Few will argue with me when I say that Master Chief is the face of the Xbox. He and the Halo brand have propelled and maintained Microsoft’s transition into the console world this and last generation.
In 2007 Bungie announced that they were parting ways with Microsoft but all rights to the Halo games past and present would belong to Microsoft. Bungie stuck around for the Halo 3 expansion Halo: ODST and the prequel Halo Reach before the series was handed over to 343 industries.
In 2010 Bungie signed a 10 year publishing deal with Activision but will maintain control and ownership of any new IP’s they develop during the contracts tenure. Since then the world has waited to see what Bungie came up with and recently a leaked document has revealed that it will be called Destiny.
Cliffy B quits Epic Games!

We’re having some high-profile departures from the games industry lately. The BioWare doctors bid farewell recently, Epic Games lost Big Bad Rod Fergusson to Bioshock Infinite and now, now the outspoken Cliff Bleszinski has also said his goodbyes. Cliffy B co-founded Epic 20 years ago, gave PC gamers the spectacular Unreal Tournament and helped create the mega-franchise to compete with Halo and Call of Duty – Gears of War.
Cliff hasn’t stated what exactly his intentions are now that he’s leaving the business behind but he has given all of us a nice goodbye statement:
I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager, and outside of my sabbatical last year, I have been going non-stop. I literally grew up in this business, as Mike likes to say. And now that I’m grown up, it’s time for a much needed break.
I will miss the projects, the playtests, the debates, and most importantly, the people. Epic only hires the best of the best, and it has been a joy working with each and every one of you on a daily basis, whether you were hired weeks ago or decades ago. I have been fortunate enough to collaborate with a variety of disciplines, from code to art to marketing and PR – it’s been one big, rewarding learning experience. I’m confident that each project that is being built, whether at Epic, Chair, PCF, or Impossible will be top notch and will please gamers and critics alike.
With so many big names leaving, are games losing their appeal? Have we hit the tipping point? I hope not but what do you geeks think?
