Here's a listing of a number of the post-E3 articles that are currently out on Halo or Oni. Some have doubtless already been reported by other sites and only a few include information for avid Halo or Oni fans that wasn't already covered in our news and forum reports earlier.

E3 Oni Demo, Part II

Some more information on Oni following another few rounds of playing with it.

The third person aiming is a bit difficult, but the laser sight on the guns (which doesn't project a laser line, just the red dot) actually works fairly well once you know to watch for it.

E3 '2000 Oni Demonstration

by Ferrex (Dead)

Taking a second seat to Halo in this year's E3, Oni is nevertheless making a strong showing. Two displays, one a large flatscreen showing an impressive demonstration and the other a playable demo running on a PS2 (I didn't realize this at first, it looks so true to the PC version).

Articles about Oni, the third-person action game originally developed at Bungie West and subsequently sold to Take Two Interactive.

game: 

Not all of them. In return for the 19.9% of Bungie owned by Take Two Interactive, that company received all rights to the Myth and Oni franchises. Take Two also received the rights to make two licensed games based on the Halo engine.

Microsoft owns the rights to all other games, including the Marathon series from which Halo is allegedly derived.

topic: 

No.

Although Halo was originally intended to be the engine for a new version of Myth, that idea was abandoned early in development.

Although Halo was originally intended to be a third-person game, like Oni, and there was some technology sharing between the two development teams, Halo does not use Oni's engine.

The upcoming game Myth 3, being developed by Mumbo Jumbo for Take Two Interactive, uses a Myth 2 engine modified to create a fully 3d game. That engine is in no way related to Halo or Oni.

Oni Central has a contest in which three contestants will randomly be selected to win a copy of the Oni soundtrack. To enter the contest, all you have to do is send an e-mail to Oni Central; easy enough. You have until September 12 to enter.
