Halo 3 Multiplayer Testing Underway

Paul Bertone, one of our lead designers, let us play something that blew our minds. That was single player, and from a mission very early in the game. And one that takes place before the events seen in the E3 trailer, but Lars, one of the new(er) multiplayer designers, has a regular multiplayer test in session now - that happens every day - and with surprisingly polished-looking graphics, although I'm told a lot of the textures and decorator objects are just placeholder at the moment. Could have fooled me. The multiplayer test lab is still packed full of old-school 4:3 480i NTSC TV sets, which tells you two things. One is that we're making sure this game looks awesome on non HD sets, and two, that there is always a crazy rush to get to the sets that are HD during those sessions. And as a new guy enters, another one leaves. AdgTinMan's contract has come to an end and he's headed off on a beach vacation. Andrew is a tremendously talented artist and we'll miss his abilities. Will he ever return? That's up to him. I even let him beat me at Halo 2 today so he wasn't soured on the idea. Don't tell him though, since he thinks he won fair and square. Also, they brought his sushi late, and he thinks the new X-Men movie is going to suck. As part of his last day bizniss, Andrew made perhaps the best Mister Chief ever (at least until my top secret Mister Chief project emerges). Not only is it cool, but it's 3D, since he successfully homage-d somebody else's 3D origami-style template. Anyway, we used it to make a Mister Chief photo love story, and if you click on the diagram at the bottom here, you can make your own one, and pose your own adventures.
