Halo/nVidia Movie, Take Two
12:08 PM | Max Dyckhoff | Comment on this story

Yesterday we brought you the news that a film from the Bungie fanfest in July had been 'rediscovered' by nVnews; while not earth-shattering, their post did have profound repercussions -- it motivated someone at Bungie to dig up the original movie that the camcorder was filming and send it out. Stomped got their hands on the original movie, direct from Bungie.


This time the movie is the original MPEG captured from the computer itself, and hence the quality is perfect. It regrettably doesn't have the voice of a Bungie fan in the middle crying "Woohoo, flamethrower!", which really made the day of Marathon fans.


VoodooExtreme has already mirrored the movie, and so has bungie.org's Hotline server. This one is about half the size of the previous one, at a mere 25 MB. Even if you grabbed the larger one yesterday, go and fetch this one too, it's worth it. However, this promo does set a frightening precedent -- what if the next game you play interrupts the action for an in-engine commercial? "I am Ragnar, I chop heads! -- But first, have you ever considered the benefits of long-term mutual funds over short-term, low-interest savings accounts?"
