Epic Battle. Epic Game.
9:30 AM EST | Brad Custer
Halo is a sci-fi action game of epic battle, exploration, and discovery.
Players wage a high-tech guerilla war, on foot, in vehicles, in the air and beneath the surface of an alien ring construct.
Working sometimes in concert with other AI characters, but more often alone, you must improvise to survive your fight against an overwhelming and heavily armed alien force.
Where's Durandal when you need it? ;D
Last month Halo came out from Bungie Studios for the new gaming console, the XBox.
From what I've seen on the news and read on the internet it's a captivating game that I can't wait to see someday on my Mac.
So in keeping the hope alive that it will one day grace our screens I decided to dedicate a slow week to a desktop for this game.
"Combat Evolved" was the logically title for this week's desktop.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.
Custer's Corner went on another hiatus while I did my part in the IMG site redesign.
Since the debut last Monday, December 10th, of the new design my section was in limbo.
1st, Custer's Desktops was stuck in the old format and trying to access .php files that were no longer the proper name causing some ugly text at the top.
Then that was fixed, but my entire section was still in the old format, but with the help of a template from our web guru, Jason Sims, I was able to switch my section over to the new look.
Finally, last week's desktop got lost in the shuffle so it was officially released a week late and this week's desktop is coming out Friday even though the dates are still correct for when they should have been released.
Still with me? ;D
In the meantime be sure to check out the glimpse of my layout at Custer's Corner Layout to see what the web site will look like. :)
