A big slab o' kudos to Nepenthe, who pointed out a new (and much more detailed) Halo article at Mac Central. Definitely one to take a look at, as it reveals some new information about the story and engine, as well as one other thing...

Forum: You're a Cyborg!

The Townhall's very complete Halo coverage page notes a correction regarding the demo's music. While originally reported as having been done in house, it has now been clarified by Bungie's Max Hoberman that Total Audio was indeed responsible for the enthralling theme. I'm looking forward to hearing what else they produce for Halo, and how they move from Myth's orchestral, fantasy music to something more suited to an action packed science fiction setting.

But not necessarily better quality. Fellow Badlander MCD made good use of Snapz Pro to capture a longer slice of the keynote stream last night, including Jobs' introduction of Jones, and Jones' introduction of Halo.

Kudos to Odin, who pointed this oddball item out to me: Soffish! I have only two questions... what were they smoking, and when can I buy one?

As posted at halo.bungie.org, the hl.bungie.org hotline server (164.58.172.181) now has copies of the Gamespot movie and some other cool Halo stuff to hand out, as well as the usual advantages of a Hotline server. HL addiction? Stop by and check it out.

It feels as though a tremendous party has been here, consuming all for a day and then moving along, leaving us to wonder just what the hell happened... thanks to all the contributors yesterday, and those to come as well.

During the commotion yesterday, there wasn't really time (or space) to slip in all the the Halo pre/reviews that surfaced yesterday. But now, we have both in abundance, so here are a few that I happened upon during the rounds:

Kudos to PeteMG, who pointed out that halo.bungie.org has obtained a larger copy of the Halo logo. Makes a great desktop picture (obsession is an ugly thing, isn't it?), so stop by and take a look.

You knew it had to happen... in the torrent of information yesterday, there was apparently some misinfo. A reader at Bungie pointed out two of the more glaring ones:

Blue's news is incorrect that it will only offer D3D support.

The other source [Macweek] is wholly incorrect ... making up (completely out of its ass, apparently) about 16 vs. 16 team play and BungieNet.com , which it also mentions. We have said none of this and we will certainly support more than D3D.

Believe nothing you hear, and only half of what you see.

Gamespot has posted a copy of the Halo demo along with their review, as seen during the keynote earlier today. While I've yet to see it, it looks to be of fairly high quality, and is definitely worth checking out, even if you saw the keynote.
