Halo 3: Recon announced; expected Fall 2009

Microsoft announced the latest instalment of the popular Halo franchise, Halo 3: Recon, at a Japanese event today, promising the Xbox 360 game would hit shelves in the Fall of 2009.  In contrast to Halo 3, the Recon game will star an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper instead of Master Chief and document the events leading up to the previous title.  Bungie Studios, who were responsible for the first three titles in the franchise, are behind this latest instalment.

Earn double XP in Halo 3 today

Earn double XP in Halo 3 today

I know that it might come as a shock to some people, but I'm not a huge Halo buff. Don't get me wrong, the games are great in their own respect, I just don't have the time or desire to spend hours honing my FPS skills anymore. Getting pwned and t-bagged by 12 year olds really isn't my idea of fun, which is why I play a respectable game like WoW where that never happens in the battle grounds when a stupid rouge stealths up behind you....what was I talking about? Anyway, those of you that are looking for some extra Halo 3 XP might do well to hop on for a few hours today.

Halo Soda Vending Machine up for Auction for Charity

Halo Soda Vending Machine up for Auction for Charity

This one off pop machine was designed for Bungie to help them celebrate the milestone that was Halo 2, but it never got used. Well, now they’ve had the whole team sign it and are selling it for charity with all of the proceeds going to the Make a Wish foundation.

Like I said, the team never used it, so it’s more or less brand new, save for the small amount of dust that might have built up on the machine. The current bid is $15,000 if you want this literally one of a kind machine.

Shipping is free if you can pick it up in Kirkland, Washington, otherwise it ranges from $200 to $2000 depending on where you live in the continental US, and if it has to leave that are either to hit Hawaii, Alaska, or Puerto Rico, or worse yet, internationally, I’m sure those shipping costs spike up quite quickly. They did use it a few times to test it and make sure it worked, and it does, but that’s it, so, fire up your bank accounts. I wonder if it comes with a case or two of Mountain Dew’s Halo Game Fuel drink?

Almost Real Halo Energy Sword

Almost Real Halo Energy Sword

I happen to have my own energy sword from halo in the form of a blue squishy keychain. I do so love it as I’m sure (read: hope) many of your do too. I also happen to collect real swords so this “real” energy sword is pretty nifty to me and I want it.
