What's the key to a good Halo game?

Big blue boobs help
What's the key to a good Halo game, and by implication, a good game of Halo: Reach?

Several elements are key. Here's a few of the ones I think would make a good game. See if you agree!

Noble soldiers

Keyes, Cole, Johnson and even the Arbiter are noble soldiers. They perform certain functions in the games to give them respect and nobility. If Johnson was an immoral wag, Halo fans would be turned off. Instead his noble death at the end of Halo 3 symbolised the strength of one man and thus humanity. Game players love that stuff.

A noble soldier who is also 7 foot tall

Take the above, wrap it with an augmented human who was stolen from his parents and forced to sought out ‘problems between humans without prejudice’. Then throw him on a strange Halo installation with Elites and Floods giving him all they’ve got. Let him fight the good fight in a most heroic fashion and save the day. In a sense. You’ve got a crowd pleaser and an instant Haloween costume favourite.

A great story with Plot Twists

Oohh, we need a key! Get the Key! Ohhh there’s the flood! Look out! Oooh there’s a mystery to solve! Oohh Why are we back on Earth? Oooh it’s a Cliff hanger ending?! Play as the bad guy and arbitrate? Don’t get out of the Warthog? There’s a traitor? It's a trap! Always something going on in the Halo story to keep everything going along, keeping the player’s (and buyer’s) interest. A huge back story, slowly drip feed into the canon ala the Terminals also a key to keeping people interested.

Classic one liner Quotes

I would have been your daddy, but that dog beat me over the fence / Wort Wort Wort!  /  I'm glad that food nipple is waiting for me on the starship cause man, have I worked up a big, grunty, thirst!  / I know what the ladies like / Relax. I'd rather not piss this thing off / Don't they teach you kids to SWEAR in basic anymore? / Please... don't shake the light bulb! / Were it... so easy / You know they let me pick? Did I ever tell you that? Choose whichever Spartan I wanted / I heard their main weakness is bananas! / Do we have any bananas? 

Beautiful scenery:

Unforgettable music.

Dadda da da Dadda daaa etc. You know what I'm talking about, Marty.

Legendary Mode

Lets face it, before Halo: CE there was the setting 'difficult', 'hard' or 'Hammer, please don't hurt 'em'. Legendary mode changed all that. It's now a badge of honour* (and some achievement points) to complete a Halo game on legendary. Points off if you do it with a friend. Unless she's hot.

Guns, Lots of Guns

You know in The Matrix when Neo gets taken to the place with all the guns? And how cool was that? Halo's guns are better.


 Lets face it, if Halo CE did not have multiplayer net work, Halo would merely have been a ‘great’ Xbox game, not the game that spawned this generation’s Star Wars. Come for the campaign, stay for the multiplayer. Halo 2 nailed the format and was the reason Xbox Live became a flag ship for Microsoft.

There's way more to the Halo series, these are just the elements I think were key to making the games so good. What worked for you?

Amazing Xmen's Mystique cosplay photos

Xmen's Mystique cosplay bodypaint photos

Rebecca Romijn has a lot to answer for, including Ugly Betty.

As the sexiest mutant in history in the three (or 4) X-Men movies she gave all the fan boys and girls what that'd been dreaming for for decades with her voluptuous, curvy turn as the incredibly lithe and blue Mystique.

Question - John Stamos - WTF were you thinking letting this babe slip through your fingers?

Anyway's John's loss was Ugly Betty's gain in the end.

Blog of the Dead: Zombie Cosplayer

zombie girl with big tits
I wish these boobs were full of brains

That's what Zombies crave. 

It doesn't matter if you are a sexy Zombie nurse, a Zombie with a bullet in your head or attacked by zombies during your wedding, they all end up wanting a taste of the grey matter. 

At least that's what I thought till I found some of these cosplayers doing their zombie thing. 

Some of them have forgone the brains and simply want to make out with each other or engage in zombie sex orgies....

 The Zombies will eat any one, no matter how important. It's clear this Father Christmas was bitten by a zombie grinch who wanted to ruin Christmas day for everyone.

Her assets and attributes make her an ideal target for cos players who don't mind sharing a bit of skin. Here's the Red Sonya cosplay pictures that have resulted.... enjoy the compilation.

Mortal Engines is rolling into town

You may have heard that Philip Reeve's first book, Mortal Engines is being turned into a movie by New Zealand's favourite little Hobbit, Peter Jackson.

Directed by Jackson's long time protege and Oscar winner in his own right, Christian Rivers, Mortal Engines is the tale of two teenagers falling in love across a back drop of giant motorised cities that roam a scorched Earth, eating each other for precious resources.

That's right, giant, mechanized cities.

This one is called London:

What's fascinating about the Mortal Engines story is the concept of these cities attacking each other. There's a kind of natural order to it. Author Reeve calls it Municipal Darwinism.

In general, the larger 'predator cities' look to consume smaller cities for their resources.

Physical resources are used for fuel or re-utilised within the city.

Humans living in the captured cities can be enslaved or used as a source of protein and eaten.

That's right, eaten.

It all sounds just so civilised. 

Mortal Engines is scripted by PJ and his usual collaborators, Fran Walsh and Philipa Boyens which bodes well.

The film is released Mid December.

Data from Star Trek The Next Generation was one of the best characters from the show. So why not have a sexy lady version of Data? Not to say some fans didn't find Brent Spiner's version of Data quite handsome....

Zombies in Space


I spied this model of a Space Zombie on Reddit. Why a space zombie posted here you might ask? It's the artist's rendition of how he thought the zombies of Destiny might look based on the artwork revealed so far. It looks pretty cool! Turns out the artist was featured on Bungie for his Fallen piece as well.

One does have to wonder if indeed Destiny does feature Zombies as I thought Zombies where infected humans - not this utter monstrosity that looks like he'd fit in well in a Alien movie or Doom game...

This impressive cosplay of the character of Kaylee from the shortlived but totally awesome Firefly TV show was spied at NY's Comic Con.

Nice job!

I vaguely recall this outfit is from the first episode of Joss Wheddon's show where Kaylee convinces a missionary man to take a flight on Serenity....
