Feature: Beyond Bungie

Halo is superbly re-imagined in fan-made project SPV3

Halo has always been a hard sell on PC, but with the Destiny 2 introducing a once-neglected audience to a world of floaty jumps and immensely satisfying shotguns, Bungie has fully extended the olive branch to once-spurned PC gamers.

Comickybook Wordthinks

I've been traveling for the last week, and between playing Puzzle Quest, reviewing games which I'm NDA-ed up to the journo gills about, drinking heavily, and and getting crushing existential dread with Alec when walking across a bridge in Vancouver, I picked up some comics. And one of them is relevant to the blog, so I'll write something about it. Yes. It features this bloke.…
