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


Also welcome back to the blog!!

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.

The Halo 4 Story Rumor

This information may not be correct because it’s a RUMOR but still if you don’t want to read it that’s fine!

while i was searching the web I found a website called, and they have rumored that from 343 that they have got the story, now I really don’t want to believe it because it just doesn’t sound right to me but I will Just give you the highlight of the article.

This is the Master Cheif 117 John and Cortana’s story as they are on some kind of world or station called Sigma 7. There is also deep levels of customization, not just in the multiplayer. This is also in the campaign mode, possibly similar to the level of Crysis 2 character customization in the story, but a lot better with way more options.

Yeah it does sort of sound like Crysis 2 with all of that customization RUMOR! But I hope that they don’t ruin halo like that giving it a whole bunch of customization options for campaign.

The article goes on and talks about how 343 may be trying to create a FPS game like Callof Duty or Battlefield where all you have to do it pull a trigger to aim down the sights, My favorite part of halo is where you don’t have to do that, aiming down the sights by pushing down a joystick.

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!!
