OMG Halo Marathon Yea

As previously mentioned, this weekend we get all cra-Z and play Halo and Halo 2 all the way through. We will ingest beef jerky and Guinness and meatzas. We will relive fabulous memories, and get pissed off when Nadine charges ahead blindly without telling me.

For what it’s worth, we’ll update throughout the weekend. There’s a delicate balance between doing something and recording the doing of the thing, and we’re not sure how it will play out, but I’d expect some kinds of updates through the day and certainly when the whole affair is done.

And here’s the surprise ending: we’re going to play a few hours of Halo 3 sunday afternoon. Shortly thereafter we’ll provide some thoughts sunday night. Probably in the form of a podcast.

There’s more news. In conjunction with Space, we are doing a Halo 3 tournament, tentatively titled “The Master Chief Challenge”. It’s Team Space vs. Team Angry Robot. We’re shooting it next weekend, and the first of three segments will air on Hypaspace the following friday (the 5th of october). We’ll give you a heads-up before then, though.

    what level are you guys doing it on? easy so you can blast through the levels, even though it feels kind of like cheating? normal so it provides somewhat of a challenge?? or heroic cause it’s sweet??? i will assume legendary is out of the question…

  2. Nadine says:

    We’ve decided on Heroic…It’s been a while and Halo 1 on Legendary just may be a bit too…time-consuming…

  3. D says:

    Yeah. I’d feel like a hack doing normal, but my few run-ins with legendary have been messy and brief.

    I can remember seeing the entire halo campaign played in the course of only a few, like no more than three, hours on legendary by one man, with a pistol. it was his first time playing halo.

    it is true. it was daryl (nadine will know who i speak of)
