For much of its modern history, science fiction has had a particular fascination with engineering, with authors and artists imagining fantastic, massive structures in the depths of space. Here are 10 of them, from incredibly large to unbelievably massive.
The early days of first person shooters like Quake and Unreal Tournament gave birth to one of the most unique types of video game AIs: the FPS bot. Within a few years time these mindless enemies became an institution. Then just as quickly as they arrived, they disappeared.
To the dismay of blaster fans who’d fallen in love with the BOOMco toys, Mattel has scaled back the line and will start focusing it more on licensed properties. The silver lining to that bad news is that we’re going to be seeing more and more weapons from the Halo universe brought to life, starting with Master Chief’s…
Halo used to mean quality. Its campaigns were all heroic military sci-fi, full of brilliantly-designed levels and enemies. The multiplayer was some of gaming’s best, supplying pulse-pounding firefights and thrilling victories. There was a time when a new Halo game was a guarantee of greatness. Since developer Bungie…
This is one thing I love about the cosplay community: the level of work and attention to detail that’s put into the costumes that they build are absolutely stunning.

Halo and XBox have long been synonymous: the former is credited with the blockbuster success of the latter. Now, with Xbox One struggling against competing devices, all eyes are Halo 5. Over on Bloomburg Magazine there’s a great profile of Bonnie Ross, 343 Industry’s CEO.
Cuando se trata de encontrar motivos para jugar a un Halo, siempre hay 2 que destacan poderosamente: su historia y su multijugador. La historia abarca más de 10 juegos, libros y un par de series, el multijugador es uno de los mejores que ha habido nunca en una consola. Halo 5 repite, con matices, esa jugada.
Halo 5 is beautiful, at times a lot of fun, and at times disappointing. It’s also not yet officially released and is dependent on its multiplayer working well on a large scale.

Halo es una de las sagas de vídeojuegos de ciencia-ficción más míticas de las últimas décadas, pero su historia en realidad no tenía tanto sentido o profundidad. Con Halo 5 eso cambia, y su brutal tráiler de lanzamiento es la prueba de ello.
Yes, that’s right—this is a working Halo Needler. It shoots amazing darts that magically stick to targets, just like in the game. (No, they don’t explode.) It’s part of an entire line of new Halo dart guns produced by BOOMco. And I just tried them all.
In April of 2014 Martin “Marty” O’Donnell, then Bungie’s audio director, was fired from the company “without cause.” A court ruling issued last week in a case between the composer and his former employer sheds light on the events leading up to his termination and the hand Activision played in souring their…
The Halo TV show is still happening. Rutina Wesley’s Arrow role is revealed, while Marc Guggenheim discusses the “one time only” deal to bring Constantine to the show.
