Okay, okay... despite flat statements to the contrary from the developer (something along the lines of it is not Marathon 4 , if I recall) and the serious mismatches in timelines and terminology, Game Girl Advance has advanced the theory that Halo really is the sequel to Marathon Infinity, citing the use of the Marathon logo and the basic similarities between the two games.

Frogblast is meaner than a junkyard dog. We swear. I mean, look-- Matt said so!

Seriously, though, this story by Matt in the HBO forum is definitely worth the read, I almost died laughing.

This is way, way off topic, but I found it utterly hilarious.

HBO has pointed out the latest installment in the Psyjnir Complex's Shallow Throat series of tabloid prognostications on Halo 2.

Love 'em or hate 'em, they won't go away... not yet, anyway. There's another Bungie comic by David Candyman Candland up at Bungie.net. In any case, I'm sure the special place that Jaime Case Griesemer refers to must be Rampancy's new Halo 2 forum. Or, at least, in our dreams it is.

Don't know if it's been mentioned anywhere yet, but the edition of Letters to the Webmaster at bungie.net is dated February 2002 and I know it was new to me.
