Kudos to Locklear, who pointed out an interview of Bungie's Peter Tamte at Mac Gamer's Ledge. Not much in the way of Halo here, but worth reading for the background information.

Yes, I know the timing is awful, but I'll be out of it until Sunday evening, until which time Badlands webmaster rhino will be posting any critical news items or breaking stories. It's nasty HTML to work with, so he's going to stick to the major items, but I'll do a roundup on Sunday evening of all the weekends events.

That said, any important news items should be sent to him as well... have a good weekend all! And for once, hope for a slow one! ;)

Many thanks to Total Audio's Marty O'Donnell, who has supplied a much higher quality version of the bootlegged MWNY Demo music. It is available at from here, or at it's source--whichever is faster for you. Enjoy!

Sporting a new design and some up to date headlines, halo.bungie.org is in business, with a new article and new site announcement in the news.

Lews Therin writes to announce his new Halo site, Halo Central. Thus far, he's keeping up on the news, and things are looking good... one to keep an eye on.

Another day, another correction... MacWEEK's Dan Turner writes regarding yesterday's post about a post on Wednesday:

Kudos to Legend, who has passed along an MP3 version of the MWNY Demo's stirring music. It's pulled right from the movie, so there's really nothing new, but at 1.2 megs it's a much more modest download.

With luck, we'll be able to obtain a higher quality file in the near future... this music is good even with the imperfections of the available format. With an original, it would be stunning.

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...

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.
