I promised myself that following my last blog about Halo way back in August, my next blog wouldn't be about Halo, so here's another blog about Halo. It's no secret that Halo as a whole is in a pretty sorry state. Between divisive recent entries, a poorly received TV show, and seemingly constant studio turmoil, … Continue reading What Could A Halo “Universe” of Games Look Like?
Kevin’s Favorite Games: Original Xbox
Welcome back to Kevin’s Favorite Games! In this series, I will list my favorite games for every console I have ever owned (or at least played enough to have a reasonable opinion on the games).
