Halo 3 update from the Bungie kids. More Rokk More Talk!

It’s worth it to read the whole thing

Oh, Cortana is here. Yup, her soft blue loveliness is recording dialog today in Jay’s booth. Jen Taylor, as she’s known outside the world of UNSC virtual AI projections, is an accomplished actress in her own right, with dozens of game, movie and theater roles under her belt (she’s also the voice of Princess Peach from the Mario series), but we love her best as Master Chief’s right hand girl.

Her reprised role in Halo 3 will probably be a challenging one, since Cortana’s circumstances are considerably darker and more terrifying than in prior appearances. One thing you already know from Halo 2 – she’s not with the Chief now, but rather, in the clutches of the Gravemind on the ruinous High Charity. I got chills listening to some of her dialog, but not when she said, “The damn popper-stopper ruined everything!” Don’t worry, that’s not Cortana dialog.

Actually, we asked Jen what she thought of the “new” state of Cortana in Halo 3 and she said, “There’s a lot more drama and a lot less technical jargon this time around. I actually just finished a couple of lines that nearly had me in tears. For an actor, more drama is always good.”

Jay Weinland agrees, “We had chills.”
I got a whole folder of these!
Great read. Can’t wait!

  1. Yes, Halo 3 does have some…. “Flause” (heheh….) but it’s also awesome. The controls are a bit different so I was confused the first time I played.

  2. Heheh, I know what you mean, Bungie should have written a longer Campaign, I finished it with a friend in about 4 hours on Normal. The Multiplayer aspect of the game is, um… relatively “flauless”, although there was some initial confusion with the X button and the Right Bumper, it made boarding difficult when I accidentally dropped trip mines. But now, I’m the ultimate Skyjacker, don’t come near me in a Banshee. I wouldn’t say this game is perfect, just incredibly awesome. It’s certainly the best multiplayer, action-packed, button-mashing, grenade-sticking, kill-stealing, obscenity-shouting, plot-twisting, mind-bending, gravity hammer-carrying, brute-bashing excuse to stay home from school though.

  3. lmao flause XD

    Halo 3 has many…..flause XD But relentlesly best halo yet.

    Favourite weapon: Gravity hammer

    Favourite gun: EVERY GUN

    favourite death to aliens:Brutal kind X3

  4. i heard that this game has good graphics and cool weapons but it also has some big glitches and a horible story line. everyone i hear says that it is not as good as 1 and 2.

  5. Cortana is hotter than ever but the campaign was so short, mind you the movie clips in between missions are cool and long. There are many more characters too like the elites shipmaster, Halo 3 short wicked game!!!!

    xxxx luv u cortana xxxx
