Podtacular 323: Halo 1 Review

You guys have asked for it, and how we’re giving it to you. We start our trio of podcasts looking at the history of Master Chief in the Halo franchise starting with Halo: Combat Evolved. Halo was has been defined as one of the pivotal moments for first person shooters on the console and it has lived up to that name ever since. In Combat Evolved, we are greeted by Captain Keyes and his crew being run down by Covenant and have ended up near a ring world called Halo. While captured on the surface of Halo, the captain overhears conversations the Covenant have about Halo being a weapon of some kind. The objective to take control of Halo turned out to be an adventure of mystery, as the secrets of Halo unfold before your eyes and reveal and even greater thread than the Covenant: the Flood. Halo was originally designed to wipe out all sentient life to starve the Flood to prevent them spreading, which 343 Guilty Spark tries to convince Chief of doing as a “Reclaimer”. After discovering Spark’s true intent, the goal was no longer to control Halo, but to disable and destroy it at all costs. Enjoy

    Duststorm – apriciate your hard work, you produce more podcast then enyone in comunity. Keep it up.

    But there is one thing i wand to point for long time. Sometimes you trying to speculate on things wich have been already confirmed long time ago. It is So obvious Halo is not gonna be 60 FPS. No chance. It is so clear. Also the resolution is long confirmed. It is native 720p. Maybe just make a research if u are not sure about something and u wont make those dumb situations.

    Another thing – dont be afraid to make podcast more open, u dont have to be so scripted. More free discussion is definitelly better then reading boring step by step walktrough. More lopen, like Halo itself u know.

    Dont get me wrong, i like podtacular. Those are just things i wanted to point out.

    Thanks Hemlax for the suggestions. You are right that I should know these things, but lately, it’s been difficult with all of the Halo stuff. Will keep trying though. :)
