“We will gather our forces on this world and depart at once. There is a greater purpose that the Banished must attend to.”

It’s been some time since now since Troy Denning’s latest Halo novel, Shadows of Reach, dropped out of slipspace (in fact, they’ve already announced the next one!)

From the state of the galaxy, to the Master Chief’s character arc, Banished politics, and beyond – let’s explore everything Blue Team’s return to Reach sets up for Halo Infinite…

A recent article from Deadline confirmed that the show (produced by Showtime) will premiere on Paramount+ in Q1 2022.

Just another article about why Haruspis loves Halo 4’s story…

“Do you believe the Master Chief succeeded because he was, at his core, broken?”

I’ve written… a fair amount about Halo 4 over the years.

I just want to gush a bit about what Halo 4 means to me…

Halo 4 recently celebrated its eighth birthday. Today, it releases on PC as the final piece of the Master Chief Collection.

Between the visual enhancements, the addition of an FOV slider, in-game integration of the Terminals and Spartan Ops cinematics (no more Halo Channel!), the new Forge items, and everything else the team at 343 has lovingly delivered – this is the definitive way to experience Halo 4.

This game is one that means a great deal and has strongly resonated with me over the years, so I just wanted to gush a bit about it…
