Weekly Halo Update

It was Bungie’s company pic-nic this week so there’s not as much info but there is some interesting points.

- We’re reaching the point where people will start a game to test something they just changed and keep playing because the game is starting to come together. Surprised shouts and exclamations like "Damn, that’scool!" now issue regularly from the same people who’ve been working on this game for years. This is a good sign.

- Lots and lots of (you know what’s coming next) bug fixes, including several little physics fixes – making sure the biped model doesn’t poke through geometry if he’s crouching and decides to stand up, that sort of thing.

- Chris Barrett, on loan from the Phoenix team, added lush detail to the swamp – lilypads and vegetation and the like.(I think he means Lake)

- Marty, whose beard would make him a dead ringer for the Unabomber if he wore an orange jumpsuit and manacles to the office and didn’t spend so much time working with computers, added 740 megabytes of music to the game this week. For those with poor math skills, that’s more than a CD’s worth. Lots of other things have sounds attached and in sync now: clambering in and out of vehicles, for example. And every particle of falling glass.

But that’s not all click here to read the rest.
