How do you think the new series is measuring up so far?
Microsoft and Ziddio have teamed up (with MLG) for the Halo 3: A Call to Arms machinima contest. They're looking for the most interesting, exciting, pwntacular Halo 3 machinima / video and are more than willing to dish out the goods. Prizes including a 50" HDTV, Halo 3 Xbox 360 and a special VIP trip to the first MLG 2008 event. So, be creative, be quick, send in your video by December 19th and maybe you'll get lucky enough to win. We hear that VIPs at MLG get to sit in the trash talking section ... oh joy!
The fourth installment of 1-800-Magic is now available on Xbox Live Marketplace. Strangely, the episode isn't available at Rooster Teeth yet, so, for the moment, you're stuck watching from your Xbox 360. In this episode we continue the story of Bitterman in his quest to understand his newfound magical abilities. Now that the series has been established in the first three episodes, the fourth gives it a little twist to keep things interesting. We won't spoil it for you, but suffice it to say it is both funny and intriguing.
Update: Looks like this is the last episode of the series, so there won't be any more. So sad.
In celebration of the demo for Shadowrun hitting Xbox Live Marketplace today, a Fan Site kit is available at www.shadowrun.com, which webmasters can submit at the forums for link love on the main site. On top of that, Roosterteeth Productions has launched a machinima based off the game, 1-800-Magic. We uploaded it to YouTube and embedded it above for your viewing pleasure, be warned though, the RvB guys are known for their colorful language, so it's recommended that you're of age if you plan on viewing it. It will be available on Xbox Live Marketplace "Soon"™. Overall, the production values look very high, with a hudless camera, and even lip synched (!) voiceovers. Then again, if you think that watching it is a waste of time, we have something especially for you.
Step 1: Watch the above video. Step 2: Pick your jaw up from the floor. Step 3: Read on.
Wow, that was unique. A Halo 2 machinima musical produced by two females starring an Elite pining after Master Chief. Yeah, unique. Enough so for the lovely ladies to deserve interviewing from Frankie over at Bungie.net for their work of art. While it may have left us feeling literally without speech, what's your take? Surely it's going to leave you with some form of an opinion, so lets hear it.
