You haven’t played Halo until you’ve played the Nic Cage edition. This mod puts his face on everything. He is Master Chief. He is also a moon, a butt, and a pair of boobs. I am not making this up. You simply have to watch the video to appreciate what Nic Cage can do for Halo.

halo singing

The latest craze these days seems to be finding somehwere with suitable acoustics and singing the theme from Halo. We’ve heard a guy bust out the haunting tune in a stairwell, and now Max has done the same in an empty chapel in Switzerland. The reverb in the church makes his a cappella performance sound like an entire choir is singing. It’s spine-tingling.

Be awed by the singing after the break.

We’re not sure how this Halo 3 Easter Egg remained a secret for so long–seven years to be precise–but the cat’s out of the bag now. Team Beyond noted that Bungie has been teasing this Egg for a bit. In fact, former Bungie developer Adrian Perez, currently at Sucker Punch, once said the following in a community Q&A:

Q: What is your proudest moment in your time at Bungie?

A: Showing my wife the Easter egg I put in the halo 3 loading screen for her – the one that nobody has found yet.

YouTuber Lord Zedd finally found the Egg, and it seems that if you click in both thumbsticks while waiting on the Halo 3 loading screen on December 25, a special video will start. Once you slow the whole thing down, you’ll see a simple birthday message that Perez wrote for his wife, Lauren.

Oh, all the feels!

There’s a new record for beating Halo: Combat Evolved and it belongs to Andrew “goatrope” Halabourda who did it in just 1 hour and 38 minutes. The exact record is 1:38:57 which beat the old record of 1:41:15 which was also set by Halabourda. It’s incredible to see how quickly he reacts to enemies since he knows exactly where they’re hiding. His knowledge of the game is so detailed that he’s even shared it through docs detailing glitches and how combat affects game time.

Tony Swatton of Man at Arms loves crafting his own personal takes on famous weapons from popular movies, TV shows and video games, and he’s finally done the big one: the energy sword from Halo. I wasn’t exactly sure how he was going to pull it off, but Tony, as expected, didn’t disappoint.

This unbelievable model of the Halo UNSC Spirit of Fire colony ship measures 7-feet long and took over four years to build. It was put together by Mark Kelso who received the ship’s specifications from designer Heikki Anttila who worked on the original 3D modeling for the ship. It’s got an insane level of detail that included removing all the Lego studs to make the ship look like a real scale model.

power up

It seems like the characters from some other games are getting a little jealous of Mario and are working together to outsmart him with powers from his game! Watch Master Chief, Lara Croft and Connor Kenway all power-up, and then get smacked down by the crafty plumber.

This fantastic replica of a Halo Needler was made by Volpin Props as a commissioned piece for Tested. We’ve previously seen other amazing replicas from Volpin like a Futurama Holophonor and a deadly-looking Skyrim Axe so the detail put into this Needler is no surprise. It took 15 molds to cast its 24 individual parts and uses 54 LEDs for the needles and blue accents. The end product weighs in at 10 lbs and even plays three Halo Reach sound effects.

This doesn’t just look like a real Halo gun, it actually is a working Beretta M9A1. The grips on the gun were custom-designed made by Derek Smith of DS Grips to feature the UNSC emblem from Halo. He makes all kinds of custom grips, this particular design going to redditor ucfnate. You might think they’re not very sci-fi, but there’s also a ring beneath the grip that glows blue. Bring on the Covenant!
