Almost feels like a holiday

A friend called to ask what it's like working at Microsoft on the Halo 3 launch day. Yes, were all talking about it. Many are playing it right now (both here and at home). Employees were lined up at the company store (they had someone in a Master Chief costume there.) The reviews so far are about as good as game scores get. But best of all, we're all in awe of how much people really love this game.

In what is probably the best (okay, only) statue hack I've ever seen, MIT students 'hacked' the John P. Harvard statue in Harvard Yard to look like Master Chief. You have to believe that in this day and age that there was a video shot of this prank in progress. Come'on, let's see it. 

Microsoft employee Brandon Wirtz combined his two favorite games and created a Halo-themed hardwood Dance Dance Revolution surface for his Xbox using about $45 in Home Depot supplies. Check out more details and the video here.

LoadingReadyRun.com shows us their take on the future of the Halo franchise. Little do they know the J. Allard Presidential Planning Committee has already selected a chairperson. Wink

Boy band Team Tiger Awesome puts their Halo love into verse. College Humor demonstrates the importance of sound designers in gaming. Others have taken a break from the carnage to play a little bit of Spartan Stickball. We've even found that Halo can bring out the best in people.

Now go have some fun!

    Awesome stuff.  Kind of difficult to believe Tina has nothing to say in the midst of Halo 3 mania. Sad
