So we here at Wanderson75.net have got a few holiday recommendations for you. Read On »
Bungie’s Halo: Combat Evolved is widely credited as the game that single-handedly put Microsoft’s Xbox Console on the map. Released in November of 2001, it rapidly began to break records selling over one million units just a few months later in April 2002. It would go on to sell over five million copies and forever associate the Master Chief, Halo, and Bungie with the Xbox and Xbox 360 consoles.
Halo has become a cultural phenomenon on a scale that only popular sci-fi juggernauts such as Star Wars and Star Trek have seen. Books, comics, action figures, and even LEGO Read On »

To say that Bungie’s swan song in the Halo universe, Halo: Reach has by far the most challenging campaign of all of the Halo games is a gross understatement. To play the campaign on the highest difficulty setting, Legendary is for the most part, insane. Checking my Bungie.net stats, I started playing the game on Legendary – Solo on September 22nd.

Best Buy Still Doesn’t Have Any New 250GB Slim/Kinect Bundles?
Apparently Best Buy is still having issues with procuring the $399 Xbox 360S Bundle with Kinect for pre-order. With Microsoft stating that this is a bigger launch than that of the 360, you have to wonder exactly how many units have been pre-ordered, since the 360 only had 400,000 units available when it launched in 2005.

One person in particular, “Ungodly Leaker”, who was responsible for the leaking of Halo: Reach apparently had posted that they received a copy as well.
