The First BOOMco Halo Blasters Will Be San Diego Comic-Con Exclusives

We got our first hands-on with Mattel’s new BOOMco Halo-themed blasters back at Toy Fair, but it looks like the first official opportunity for everyone to get their hands on the new additions to the line will be at the San Diego Comic-Con next month.


The Next Cortana Won't Just Be A Sexy Lady -- You Can Also Choose A Dude

Why are our digital assistants submissive human women? It’s more than a little sexist, no? But Microsoft’s Cortana will soon let you change her gender. There will be a male version too.


Huawei's Mobile World Congress Booth Gave Off A Weird 'Halo' Vibe

Image Cache: Mobile World Congress is massive. It’s a city of booths packed with phones, tablets and obnoxious thought leaders. Huawei is one of the owners of these booths, and as soon as I walked into it this week I got a weird Halo vibe thanks to the ceiling. Check it out.


A Halo-Themed Helmet That Protects Your Head On Motorcycles Or Warthogs

It looks like NECA is ready to stop teasing its Master Chief-inspired motorcycle helmet and finally start shipping an actual product as early as July of this year.

The Best Stuff At Toy Fair 2015

Once a year, toy companies from all over the world converge on New York to reveal what everyone will be fighting to buy their kids — or themselves — when the holidays roll around again.

The Next-Gen Game I'm Most Excited For Right Now Came Out 10 Years Ago

It has been noted before that the transition into the latest generation of consoles has been weirdly soft and tentative. New games take ages to hit the market, and instead we’re left to play last-gen re-releases over and over until we wonder why we bought a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One in the first place.

Gigantic Futuristic Metropolis Of Halo 5

Gallery: I don’t know much about Halo 5: Guardians but, looking at the scale and detail of these new environment concepts, I know that I would really like to play it. Give me an Oculus Rift and I will get lost in those city streets forever.


Here's The First Trailer For That Halo TV Series
