Halo becomes anime

I’ve actually never played a Halo game. It’s not my kind of game. But it is for a lot of others, since the Halo games have been a great success on both the original Xbox and Xbox 360.

I guess a lot of fans are happy to learn that Halo will become a seven part anime short films as Halo Legend. Should be fun for a lot of gamers. Read more on IGN.com.

Here is the debut trailer of Halo Legend shown at SDCC (San Diego Comic-Con).

Major Nelson set on fire


I follow Major Nelson (aka Larry Hryb) on Twitter. He wrote that he was shooting some videos for an upcoming Inside Xbox video where he was set on fire. The pictures look cool, and I guess the video will too which will air in a few weeks.

On his Flickr page he wrote that “I was trained by professionals and had licensed safety professionals standing by.” and “Do not try this at home!“.

Xbox 360: The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition – only 800 points

The Secret of Monkey Island - Special Edition

This week, on July 15, you can download The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition on Xbox Live Arcade for only 800 points. I’m a bit suprised that it’s only 800 points, and not 1200 which look like the new norm. But at this price, it’s a must have title for all that loved the game nearly 20 years ago.

A cool feature is that you can switch between the 1990 PC version with only 256 colours and the new and updated 2009 XBLA version with HD graphics. You can see it in the video bellow.

The Secret of Monkey Island™: Special Edition

Pirates! Adventure! Monkeys! Relive the hilarious swashbuckling misadventures of the wannabe pirate Guybrush Threepwood as he attempts to become the most infamous pirate in the Caribbean! Back by popular demand, The Secret of Monkey Island™: Special Edition faithfully re-imagines the internationally-acclaimed classic pirate adventure game from LucasArts in gorgeous HD detail.

  • Hilarious swashbuckling misadventures: Embark on a bumbling misadventure in an attempt to become the most infamous pirate in the Caribbean, win the heart of the beautiful governor, Elaine Marley, and confront the evil ghost pirate, LeChuck!
  • High-definition graphics: The game is all-new and re-imagined with a contemporary art style, hand-drawn and presented in 1080p.
