GamesRadar has put up a two-page piece on Halo 2 from EDGE magazine, talking about how great multiplayer is, and repeating the complaints of journalists worldwide who wanted a peek at the single-player campaign and haven't been able to cajole any information out of Bungie. Editor's Note: longtime Bungiefen might recognize the "grey, hairless" beast pictured in concept art in one cubicle that's mentioned in the article. Another Marathon-Halo crossover?

Frankie's update this week is at Halo Babies, where, like Andre the Giant in Princess Bride, Mister Chief is dreaming of large women. Except, in his case, it's a nightmare.

Mark Ryan Sallee at IGN played the Zanzibar level of Halo 2 at Game Stars Live, and wrote up a short article of his impressions, including some of the changes made to the weapons. Apparently, the plasma weapons, including his own favorite, the plasma rifle, don't slow down enemies the way they did in Halo 1. And that makes Mark sad.

In the first videogame preview seemingly done by an entire country, Canada.com has put up a look at Halo 2. And yes, we know that's really Canada's National Post, and even if we hadn't, Louis Wu would have been there to tell us.

A site called The Flaming Blue Ninjas has a new article up where their own Rabid Gnome interviews John "Xearo" Blow who played Halo 2 at MLG Seattle. He rates the vehicles and weapons and talks about his general impressions. Generally, he dislikes dual wielding, the new needler, the plasma sword, the fixed pistol, and all vehicles.

IGN's Tal Blevins was on hand at the German Games Convention in Leipzig, and while there they got their hands on Halo 2. Having already had the chance to play Zanzibar at E3, their rep thought he could hand the Germans their hats on the map; sounds like he got his chance. However, with phrases like "Suck on some of that, Dieter" I hope he isn't hoping for a career in diplomacy.

Rams tipped us off to the second part of Banshee Ace's look at Halo 2 over at Battleground Halo. This one brings the series to a conclusion, and hints at a lot of things that might (we hope) get into Halo 2, as well as some things everyone has already seen.
