VG Playdate: Speed Halo on Sunday 28 August

Despite the fact that I have no idea how it works (or even which platform it’s for), the VeteranGamers playdate this week will feature Speed Halo on Halo:Reach.

Halo Reach – The End Of An Era…

When Halo – Combat Evolved launched back in November 2001, I don’t think even Microsoft knew what they had on their hands.

German Master Chief Pop Song

This is Stu’s (The Daddy) second life. That’s right he’s a German pop star.

If you go to the youtube page for this video, there is a comment which made me lol, and it goes:
