Unless you’re an enormous fan of the franchise, you might not know that the Halo universe extends beyond the best-selling video games. There are comics, novels and TV shows expanding upon the story of the Spartans, and on Friday at Comic-Con, the Halo team revealed the latest project outside of the gaming world. More →

We shared the trailers from each press conference during the week of E3 2015, but today we’ve decided to collect the ten best gameplay videos from the entire show. More →

Hands-On: HoloLens Blew My Mind, But It Has Some Serious Limitations

Hands-On: HoloLens Blew My Mind, But It Has Some Serious Limitations

Nothing at Microsoft’s press conference on Monday got a bigger reaction than HoloLens. Being able to peer into the world of a game without having to leave the real world is a fascinating proposition, but does it really work?

I had the opportunity to test out HoloLens in a Halo 5 simulation on Wednesday, and although it wasn’t perfect, I can tell that HoloLens is bringing something entirely new to the table. More →

Halo 5 Warzone Preview E3 2015

Wayne Brady Just Beat Me at Halo 5

Wayne Brady Just Beat Me at Halo 5

The very first demo I had a chance to play at E3 2015 this year was Halo 5’s new multiplayer mode, Warzone. It’s completely unlike the 4 v 4 Arena mode you’re used to, fusing player vs. environment elements with 12 on 12 multiplayer combat. If standard multiplayer isn’t dynamic enough for you, Warzone might be what you’re looking for. More →

Video: The Cast of Silicon Valley Destroys Conan in Halo 5

Conan O’Brien’s gaming videos are always entertaining and this week’s video of him playing the upcoming Halo 5 against three cast members from HBO’s sitcom Silicon Valley is no exception. Halo 5, which is still months away from being released, has a terrific looking multiplayer mode that Conan played with Silicon Valley stars  Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller and Zach Woods. Given how Conan is typically a pretty crappy gamer, you won’t be surprised to learn that he spends most of the video getting slaughtered by his rivals. More →

The first press conference of a very busy Monday is about to begin as Microsoft takes the stage at the Galen Center to discuss the future of the Xbox One.

See the massive, expensive Halo 5: Guardians Limited Collector’s Edition

We’ve known since the day it was announced that Halo 5: Guardians would be receiving its own collector’s edition, but until now, we’d never seen exactly what the package would entail. That changed on Tuesday when GameStop Italy’s website leaked the contents of the Limited Collector’s Edition early. More →

Halo 5 alternate reality game will reveal the truth about Master Chief

One of the most fascinating stories in video game history is that of Master Chief, aka John-117. We’ve never even seen the face of the hero of the Halo franchise, but in anticipation of Halo 5: Guardians, 343 Industries has launched an ARG (alternate reality game) that will dig deep into the Chief’s past.

Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta preview: Halo’s new breakneck speed

Last weekend, I played my first few rounds of Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer. I’d seen the videos and I’d heard the concern from Halo fans, but I wanted to actually get my hands on it before I made any judgments. After all, Halo’s competitive multiplayer has never been my strong suit, so I was more excited about the changes than the Halo purists.
