Halo 4 comes out on Election Day. Coincidence? I think not! Check out my full GIF-packed list on BuzzFeed.
“You’re such a pragmatist, Chief”
For the second time in as many days, you’re going to have to wait to watch Felix Baumgartner free-fall over 22 miles from the sky to the earth.
It appeared as though the daredevil’s Red Bull sponsored skydive from the stratosphere—man, that’s fun to say—was going to go off without a hitch on Wednesday afternoon, but as the wind kicked up, the crew was forced to cancel the mission for the second consecutive day…
On Tuesday morning, Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner will attempt to break the world record for highest-ever skydive, leaping from a balloon nearly 23 miles above Earth’s surface.
If all goes according to plan, Baumgartner will step into the void 120,000 feet (36,576 meters) above southeastern New Mexico early Tuesday, then plummet to Earth in a harrowing freefall that will see him become the first skydiver to break the sound barrier.
Leading up to the release of Halo 4, Microsoft has produced a 5 part live-action web series: Forward Unto Dawn.
The flashback episodes will follow the Master Chief and a young UNSC cadet, Thomas Lasky, who grows up to become the captain of the UNSC Starship Infinity. If you’ve seen the Halo 4 trailer, you’ll know that this same ship crash lands on the new alien planet, right alongside Chief.
Forward Unto Dawn will be a compelling series, “filling-in” new fans on the back story and will provide cinematic glory for the uber-nerd fan hordes.
Episode 1 premiered on Friday. My favorite part was, of course, the warthog.
Halo 4 drops on November 6.
