interview

Major Nelson did a backstage interview with Peter Moore before the press event. Despite the latter's predilection for annoying golf claps punctuating his presentation, he does redeem himself with his good taste in beer, mentioning that Bass ale is one of his green room requirements.

Major Silva of the United Nations Space Command Defense Force (a Halo fansite) interviewed Claude "Louis Wu" Errera of HBO. Asked how there were enough hours in the day for him to keep up with all the news in the Halo universe, as well as delete forum spam, run a business, have a family, and sometimes even play Halo, he responded:

Dean Takahashi caught up with Hamilton Chu of Giant Bite to talk about life after Halo. Chu spent three and a half years working on Halo; before that, he was part of the Oni team.

Game-Spectrum, purporting to cover the entire spectrum of gaming, gets a nice interview, along with threats of physical violence, with its interview of Bungie's own Kevin "KP" Paul, covering his turn-ons, turn-offs, and how he sleeps at night knowing all that stuff about Halo that we'll never even know we don't know.

The previously Halo-themed mod for Command & Conquer Generals might not have a Bungie flavor anymore, but the request to cease development using Halo intellectual property does not mean the project is dead.

Quint at Ain't It Cool News has put up part three of five in his interview with Halo movie producer Peter "Freakin" Jackson. Unlike just about everybody at Bungie, Jackson actually likes to talk and talk about Halo, so there's loads of content in here. It is probably too far out from the film's expected release to hold him to anything concrete in here, but what comes across loud and clear is his enthusiasm for first-time feature director Neill Blomkamp.

The latest Community Spotlight at Bungie.net by KP is on Recon54, who is currently on an extended mission ordered by the greybeards of old school Bungie fandom to observe noobs in their natural habitat, interacting with Microsoft's "magical humming box". In addition, he drives the Spambulance and has a healthy fear of Shishka, which certainly any rational person can understand. Head over and give it a read if you haven't already.

Josh Rodgers and "Stosh" recently joined Bungie officially after spending time involved in other capacities. KP drew the short straw and had to interrogate them about their deviant proclivities, super secrets, scrumptious sandwiches and the use of Mat Noguchi's rage radiation as a source of warmth. Check it out.

Normally the very entertaining Halo Story Page is rather like the equivalent of the Bungie fan community putting on funny costumes, lounging in easy chairs and sipping snifters of brandy while contemplating the treachery of Cortana, the inscrutableness of Gravemind and the machismo of Keyes family officers of both genders.

Wait, it's not the equivalent of that, it's exactly that.

However, today they've got something a bit better than that. Yes, hard to believe, but they do.

Joe Staten, along with Frankie and Robert McLees, at the request of mnemesis and Finn, granted the HSP an interview that contains some silliness, some pretty solid information, and some heavy hints about the Halo Story.

Let's sift through some particularly salacious morsels and read between the lines, shall we?

Robert McLees said this image is worth a thousand words about the Covenant-Flood relationship.


Rampant for over se7en years.



Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

There's a brand new(as of typing this) interview with Joe Staten on the Halo Story Page. Not only does it answer a few questions, it tosses out a lot more in typical Bungie fashion, and is quite revealing about the covenant- Jackals in particular.

First, concerning Jackals. This is pretty damn interesting.

HSP: One of the HBO forumgoers noted an interesting description of the Jackals on the Joyride site:

In this case, we're talking about the upcoming Halo book by Eric Nylund, Ghosts of Coral (or of Onyx, depending on who you believe), but actually about Nylund's first Halo outing, The Fall Of Reach, which according to an interview with Nylund at Firing Squad, Microsoft commissioned him to write in... you guessed it, seven weeks.

We're extremely late in mentioning this article, but Gamasutra did an interview with Wideload Games founder Alexander "The Man" Seropian last month as Part 2 of their Tour of Chicago. Seropian's post-Bungie startup is based there, as Bungie was prior to the Microsoft buyout.

Frankie has taken advantage of the gap between seasons 4 and 5 of Red vs Blue to interview Burnie, much like the Greeks exploited the Trojans' weakness for equine statuary. Within, a plot to eliminate the show's best character is revealed!

At the end of the last season, it looked like we might be getting a new cast member. Can you tell us if you have plans to introduce any other new cast members?
