Bungie: So Our Game's Called Halo - Halo Ten Year Anniversary

100°
247w ago - Ten years ago on July 21st, 1999: Macworld, New York. Apple's iCEO Steve Jobs yields the stage for a brief but soon to be memorable moment to Bungie co-founder Jason Jones.

Jones, looking a bit nervous, steps into the fore, shakes Jobs' hand and begins quite simply:

"So our game's called Halo..."

To quote: Internally, the title was known as Blam! - a moniker bestowed when Jones couldn't bring himself to use the original working title, Monkeynuts, in front of his own mother. Whatever the name, this is the first time the public has laid eyes on the project.

To write the sum of a decade is a monumental task. Bungie's history is encoded into the games we've made and defined by the men and women who've worked inside the studio's walls - people who have in many cases become a family. And of course we've also been shaped, inspired, and downright awestruck over the community that's followed alongside.

To say thank you for a decade is even more of a monumental task. We say it anyway. Thank you for more than ten years of community involvement, contribution, and support.

Thanks for the passion, for the letters, for the ravenous support (and defense) of us online, for pouring through our stories, for getting to the farthest...

251w ago - News from CodeMii regarding the HomebrewBrowser, I have to say it's simply amazing how much this gets used, more people use this as their way of downloading new apps than by hand, incredible.

To quote: The Homebrew Browser turns 1 today. I have to say that it doesn't feel like it's been a year for me but you can't argue with the release dates.

Along with it comes this quick 1 year anniversary video put together showing the progression of the HBB versions.

The ending seems familiar

Rather than draw from the series' pool of female characters, the pack lets players roll their own originals, complete with sultry -even scandalous- "taunts."

The DLC is free for players who already have the GENE expansion pack purchased and installed.

A video of it in action is below, courtesy of NaomiHunter88 via YouTube. Enjoy!
