  • Agent Locke Could be Playable Character in Halo 5

    halo 5 agent lockeAgent Locke is a new character to the lore of Halo that will make his first appearance in the live actions series, Halo Nightfall, however, the actor that plays Locke suggests the character will play a big part in Halo 5: Guardians as well.

    In fact, according to actor Mike Colter, the man who plays Agent Locke, the main protagonist in Halo 5 may instead be Agent Locke instead of the Master Chief.

    Colter revealed in a recent interview with X-One magazine that "I'm a playable character in Halo 5." Colter went on to explain that, "Once Halo: The Master Chief Collection is released, and then Halo 5 comes out shortly thereafter, you're basically going to be playing a game with me as the primary character.

    "I'll have some cool weaponry, and some cool abilities, because by that time I'll be a Spartan IV."
    "What's not known, is whether I'm a friend or foe," Colter suggested. "The relationship between Master Chief and Jameson Locke is going to be interesting. Because what's the outcome?
    We can't really confirm or deny any of this information at this point as 343 Industries have yet to respond, but it would certainly turn the scales if Agent Locke ended up becoming the main protagonist to the current Halo trilogy.
    It wouldn't be the first time players have been able to play another character in the Halo franchise - in Halo 2, half of the campaign missions were played through the eyes of the Arbiter.

  • Master Chief in Halo 4

    Master Chief in Halo 4: Differences across the board.

    There is a huge rue of excitement surrounding the debut of Halo 4s trailer at E3 2011. It marks another installment to an already amazing track record for the Halo franchise, and here at Evil, we are very captivated by the new games possibilities. In an interview with former Halo franchise director, Frank OConnor makes note of the noticeable changes to Master Chief in Halo 4s trailer.

    The most notable difference from the trailer is the altered armor that Master Chief is wearing. There are gaps in the armor, and it is more evident that a man is behind the famed Spartan armor. OConnor said this about the noticeable differences, There's some story behind his new look... There are specific reasons why he looks the way he does and why some of his behaviors have changed. We'll see in good time.

    This leads me to think that the changes are not only to the armor, but also more importantly to Master Chief himself. Halo 4 is set to expand the franchise with a new storyline, and accordingly it seems that Bungie has updated the Master Chief character to better fit the new title. This is not a disappointment at all, and actually, I am even more excited to get a copy and start playing it.

    Will Master Chief still be John-117, or is this another super soldier, the likes of which the gaming community has not encountered before? How will the new Master Chief attributes tie into the game? All questions will be answered in due time, and my anticipation for Halo 4s release is growing every day. Keep gaming, and look for more information surrounding the new Halo title, and the updated Master Chief.

  • A List Gaming Modz Could Predict

    Gaming Modz

    Gaming Modz showcase those characters and titles that the gaming community really seem to latch on to. Guinness just asked over 13,000 gamers to vote for their favorite video game characters at their Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition website. The top 50 list compiled seems fairly accurate if you take a lesson from the gaming modz you see within gaming communities.

    In the top 5 of this list you'll find characters that have been used for hundreds of gaming modz as well as some very cool community driven gaming modz based off these personalities.

    #1 Mario – Mario will just about always be number one, for a lot of people the original Mario was their first game of this medium that people experienced. Since the release of Youtube, it seems as though people have been modding the game to make it nightmarishly difficult.

    #2 Link - People can't get enough of Link and Hyrule. Check out this gaming mod of a zombie infested version of Hyrule.

    #3 Master Chief – Master Chief doesn't say much, but that doesn't mean we don't love playing as him. 3D or 2D. See him in 8 Bit-Halo.

    #4 Solid Snake - Solid Snake and the Metal Gear revival that took place on the PSX made us fall in love with this unique genre of espionage, but we also really dug Solid Snake.We wanted to start playing Solid Snake is all of our games. See this gaming mod of Solid Snake in Resident Evil 4.

    #5 Cloud – Cloud and the gang paved way for westerners to appreciate the Japanese roleplaying game genre and we've never forgotten him. While he has made a ridiculous number of cameos in Kingdom Hearts alone, it doesn't mean the fans have gotten tired of this soldier quite yet. He ends up in the most ridiculous spots.

  • Bungie's Last Halo Installment: Halo Reach


    Reach is finally here for all of the Halo fans! Halo Reach will be Bungie's last Halo game as they give the rights to Microsoft to continue the series if they choose too. Bungie went back and put some thought into creating their last installment on the series. Halo Reach is about the Spartan's home planet, Reach. Master Chief is gone! Players will be playing as Noble 6, a super soldier part of a unit fighting the Covenant. Halo Reach is the ultimate prequel and gives gamers options they never had before. The game is still a first person shooter, with co-op, online multiplayer and firefight modes. Reach takes Halo to an entire new level. Halo Reach campaign mode is said to be the most difficult compared to the other Halo's. With difficulty increasing as you add players for co-op makes the game a bit more interesting. Also there is a credit system involved in the game. As your player collects credit they will be able to upgrade and customize their character as they please. Another new edition to the game is what players will call "loadouts". Loadouts are player's options of having a jetpack, sprinting, camouflage or energy shield at their disposal. Halo Reach made some great improvements on their multiplayer. The veto system has changed, players will be able to vote on the map they want instead of vetoing one map and have another random map selected. New types of games have been added to the multiplayer like Stockpile where teams collect neutral flags or Generator Defense where 3 Spartans go against 3 Elites. Halo Reach should satisfy majority of Halo fans craving for something new and improved as Bungie open up forums, blogs and even had a beta version released earlier in the summer for gamers to have their input influence this revolutionary game. Halo Reach will be released September 14th.
