Alex Seropian | Looking Forward To Halo 4

Founder of Bungie ~helped

Alex Seropian is known for his role in founding Bungie, the original development company which created the Halo franchise, one of the most successful game series in the world. Seropian left Bungie back in 2002, shortly after the first Halo game was released, so he’s been outside of the Halo world for quite some time. Nonetheless, Seropian has enjoyed the other titles in the Halo series and is now looking forward to Halo 4, which is being developed by 343 Industries, a development branch created by Microsoft to oversee the creation of the new game.

“I don’t think I can be anything other than hopeful that it will be great,” said Seropian. “We’ll see. Halo is one of the crown jewels in the Microsoft gaming IP, if not the crown jewel, so you would expect nothing less than for them to take the time needed and apply the resources needed to make it great. I would be pretty surprised if they whiffed it. Maybe it will bring a fresh perspective, and that’s so hard because there’s so many fans that are used to a particular thing that bringing something new is often…it’s hard to bring something new to a franchise that’s so established. I’m looking forward to it.

“I’ve been an observer for a while now. So much has gone on with the franchise. I will say the encouraging thing is that I know a lot of the folks at Microsoft working on it and they are great people. I’m very hopeful that the team there is very fantastic. They are certainly treating it with a lot of care and respect. And applying the resources you’d like to see applied to a franchise like that. I’m hopeful that it will continue to bring the high production value and cool experiences it’s known for.”

ATLAS

Still haven’t gotten the Brady Games hand book for games like Halo Reach and Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary? I think one of the most helpful elements in those books is the map layouts for multiplayer maps. It really helps you find those weapons that everyone has and also objectives like where the next hill is going to spawn. Well now you can with your mobile smart phone! Halo Waypoint quotes

“ATLAS (Assisted Tactical Assault System), a new maps and strategy experience for Halo: Reach, is available now as part of Halo Waypoint on Windows Phone 7, Android, and iOS devices. 343 Industries teamed up with Brady Games to bring you detailed Multiplayer and Firefight maps from Halo: Reach in ATLAS, including Noble, Defiant, and the new Anniversary maps. “

PHONES THAT ARE COMPATABLE:

  • Windows 7 Phone (That one should just be a given)
  • IOS Devices (that means Iphones and Ipods)
  • Android

No clue if Halo Waypoint will ever let computer users have a look at ATLAS but it’s a really cool tool to use to bump up you game on Halo Reach!!

 

Bungie Mail Sack 3.0

DeeJ has posted yet another iteration of the Mail Sack – it is NEARLY Halo-free, but I saw a Legendary Spartan helmet in one of the pictures, so I’m mentioning it. It’s a good read. (Louis Wu 20:33:06 UTC) (permalink)

This post was straight from halo.bungie.org. Basically the mail sack is where you ask employees questions if I remember. It’s cool to read if there’s nothing else that you’re doing, but if you have time it’s worth the read but sometimes it can get very long.

Bungie agrees that SOPA sucks!! click link

First off the click link in the title is just for twitter followers so they know that when they see these weird post that says “Bungie agrees that SOPA sucks” they won’t get all freaked out not knowing it’s a blog post.

Now onto the real story, if you don’t already know SOPA stands for stop online piracy act. and for one i think it’s a waste of time. Basically they want to take over the internet and that’s long story short.  And now this is another reason why i love bungie. They come straight out and say “SOPA sucks”.

At Bungie we tend to keep our collective nose out of state affairs. We can’t even come to a consensus on which bus line to take into Bellevue in the morning, let alone arrive at any unified conclusions regarding our equally congested political roadways. But we all agree that SOPA sucks.
