Weekly Halo Update

It’s time once again for the Halo Weekly update with your host Matt Soell offering up tidbits of newness in the development of Halo. Hosted this week at Battleground: Halo, Matt has returned to his comical style of adding witty commentary to each update. Here’s some tasty treats.

- The Sin-O-MatiXXX team has spent most of this week fixing bugs in their cutscenes. But it’s not all tedious clean-up. As I began writing this Halo Update, Marty emerged from the studio and announced, "I’ve just finished a new, three-minute piece that I like a lot. It adds real emotion and pathos to the cutscene Joseph is working on." Joseph, displaying the humility that comes naturally when working with a composer of Marty’s caliber, could only reply "GreatGreatGreat. Let’s get that bitch in there."

- Speaking even more of vehicles: if they happen to be resting on a glass surface, and you blow the glass surface to smithereens, the vehicle now falls. Yeah, it’s what you’d expect, but it wasn’t working before and now it does.

- Speaking of glass and hearts thereof, Jason Jones volunteered that he’s listening to Blondie’s Greatest Hits album a lot this week, especially "The Tide Is High," and he’s very happy about it. This may not seem like a big deal, but it’s a big step up when you consider his fixation with the song "Crash" by the Primitives a few years back. Way to go, Jason!
