Halo Week Day 5: Wacky Hijinks

So the game has been out for a couple days now. You may be wondering what people have been up to? Well, lucky for you Bungie has even more neat website integration features for Halo 3 than they had for Halo 2, and you can head over to their website and see what your friends have been doing to your voyeuristic heart’s content.

And once they play the game, you will find Mike here and Shawn here.

As you can see, there’s a whole lot of information available there, but probably the most immediately impressive item is the access to screenshots. You can click “read more” below to see a few good ones that I taken (aside from the one at the top of this post). However, the more useful functions (for those playing the game at least) are those related to the file share. As you may know, any custom gametypes, custom maps, screenshots, and saved film data you have can be uploaded to Bungie’s servers and then other users can download them from there. However, you can also go browse user profiles on bungie.net and queue up files to download the next time you log on to Halo 3 on your Xbox. Pretty nifty, huh? If you are interested, you can learn all about bungie.net’s features here.
