After taking a look at the problem, Case discovered that the movie had only half uploaded, and refused to fully upload on subsequent attempts. However, he did upload it here, and that appears to have worked out. To all who downloaded the half finished files, sorry about that foul-up.

game: 

A few readers who downloaded the higher quality Demo movie report that it tends to crash halfway through. This could be a sign of a corrupted file, or just a bug in QT4-but no point in taking chances.

Don't download this film. I'll try to get a fresh copy up there later today, just in case. Thanks again to those of you who wrote in to warn me about this, and sorry about that wasted download.

I know, I said I'd retire it for a bit, but some excellent conversation on the Forum has prompted me to re-instate the poll for another week or so.

The topic: what do you think would be a cool name for orders/clans in Halo? A few favorite suggestions posted on the forum are listed below, so cast your vote and help shape things to come!

As promised, a nicer, formatted (edited and complete, too) copy of Freewill's interview of Jason Jones has been posted for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy.

Hamish of Marathon's Story sent in a note regarding some new inteview movies:

I have just uploaded two new Macworld movies to the Marathon Central ftp site courtesy of Miguel Chavez.

One is a 60+MB high quality version of Miguel's interview with Jason Jones. It's EXACTLY the same as the smaller 20MB movie but the picture and sound quality is better.

And in addition there is a small (<1MB) movie of Jason Jones playing Marathon. Yeah it's short but cool.

Many thanks to Butcher (and Freewill too!) for transcribing Freewill's interview of Jason Jones into the smallest file yet-a text file. Dashing off to work now, but I'll clean it up and make it easier to read when I return tonight. In the meantime, enjoy the many wonders of .txt files!

For those of you daunted by the 20 meg download, halo.bungie.org has posted an audio only version of Freewill's interview with Jason Jones.

game: 

While not a new screenshot, Bungie has updated their Halo page's PR section to include a comprehensive list of press reactions (aka. articles). While most are pretty much cut and pastes of the official PR, it pays to be well read.

game: 

Outpourings of gratitude to Bullseye, for creating a considerably improved version of the Gamespot MWNY Demo movie, and Case for grabbing and uploading it to our server (doing in minutes what would have taken me days).

This improved video not only looks better, but has had the cruddy soundtrack overwritten with a fresh version taken from the Demo MP3. It's a hefty download, but worth it if you're showing off or looking for the first time.

game: 

Bungie has swapped out the old alien on their Halo page with a new, rendered version. While it looks very much like the aliens in the Demo, it's still very worth checking out.

And I may be on crack, but I thought I saw a new quote in there... then again, I might not have seen them all on the first go.
