Bungie job ads hint at RPG mechanics

As Yossarian pointed out, that posting is quite old. 'Player investment' is also the name of Bungie's credits and reward system in Halo: Reach. Nothing to see here, really.

Loyal Halo 2 fans invited to Reach beta

At this point I think it's not even clear if this is a worldwide action or not. As Yossarian said, many of us who consider themselves major Halo players have not received an email. As far as I know, it's not only for those who never played Halo 3 though, as people like Louis Wu from halo.bungie.org received one.

Woot! I look forward to meeting all you lovely people again. :)

I'm also excited to hear that it's been extended to 3 days over the whole weekend, that makes it much easier for the working people to attend for more than a few hours.

Gl3n: I think big thanks go to you, too. For organising the tournament and for being my substitute in the game!

@Yossarian: The music was spectacular indeed. Ubisoft released the soundtrack as a download at some point, you can get it here: http://www.myspace.com/HyllianMusic

Absolutely mesmerising game. Quite definitely one of my favourite action adventure games of all time. The story and cutscenes, particularly in the second half, are very well-executed, they really pull at your emotions.

On that note, I almost cried when I saw a bunch of copies of the PC version hidden behind some mediocre games at a store a few years ago. BG&E was priced at 1 Euro, and still nobody was buying it. I stealthily moved a few copies to the front of the shelf and hoped that I would make some person's day if they decided to pick it up.

Hehe. Reading this, it seems EG were literally trying to set the site on fire: Singstar, WiiFit and Trials 2 all voted higher than MGS4.

EndWar demo on Xbox Live

the_dudefather: It had trouble hearing me say "move to" and "camera", probably because I either spoke too fast or too quietly though. I felt like a right idiot shouting at the TV though...
And yes, the game does teach you the phonetic alphabet. Well, some of it at least.

Darren: Yeah, I think it does work without the voice-commands. At least it seems that way from my (short) experiences with the demo. But you'll get your units moving places a lot quicker if you use them, I believe.

Maddie reference spotted in Bungie trailer

Brainboy

10 years ago

squarejawhero: "What does matter is what they say to the press rather than holding off." Why do Bungie need to comment on a news story that makes no sense whatsoever in the first place? Any news "source" that decides to spin this into sensationalism is hardly a serious one. In fact, I'm pretty disappointed this was run on EG.

Besides, as Yossarian pointed out, there is a fiction reference to a Maddie.

sketchfactor (Brian Jarrard) of Bungie says:

This is an unfortunate coincidence but there is no connection between Bungie's game and the tragic disappearance of that little girl.
