Dub Dub Dub Halo 4 Double XP

So Mountain dew and Doritos teamed up with 343 so we can have our double xp we all deserve. Just like when the double xp was released with call of duty modern warfare 3 it works the same way. You go to your store and pick up special marked packages of mountain dew and Doritos products and enter your codes online and there you go, you have your double xp. Unlike the COD xp promotion. Your codes give you a number of matches per xp. Like a 12 pack of mountain dew will give you six matches of double xp. Then after reading the fine print it says that the double xp will only work in the playlist “War Games”.  So what do you think about this promotion?? leave a comment or tweet @itza_travis

How 343 Is Reinventing Halo

Microsoft's 343 Industries is taking Halo to the next level, while maintaining that almost undefinable feel of what it's like to be the Master Chief.

So have you ever wondered how different halo 4 will be from halo 3? Well I know you have because well everyone is!! It’s not Bungie anymore. Well here is an article that goes in depth of those little details of the halo 4 Campaign/Multiplayer visual and physical aspects. If you have some extra time on your hands this is a great read and you can find it by clicking here.

“Wake up Chief. I need you.” With Cortana’s first words you feel like you are back to all of those hours of action-packed storytelling that filled the original Halo trilogy. The banter between Master Chief and Cortana as they seek out those attacking their ship just cements it. And then come the Elites and Grunts: your first firefight as Master Chief in years, and you know you are playing Halo.

Halo 4 Campagin already done?

It’s been rumored by Frank o’ connor that the campaign may already be done, he’s said this to bs angle.

Obviously we’ve been working on the game in earnest for a long time, but it’s all starting to feel pretty real to me now. Campaign is playable from start to finish

So it sounds like the campaign may be done and the game may be out early winter of 2012 (december/ end of november). He also goes on and says…

and multiplayer has been running for a while. It’s amazing to see changes big and small have a dramatic effect on making the game smoother, more playable and more enjoyable in almost every session.

This would be really cool if the game is this far into development, but i also feel it shouldn’t be a game that’s rushed.

This is only a rumor and like all rumors it’s really cool!!

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!!
