Bonus Snippet!: Halo? Gunman Chronicles? Oh my GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD.
This week’s bonus snippet is in text!
Some of you may remember the amazing Gunman Chronicles, a mod that started on Quake 1, continued on Quake 2, and finally popped up on GoldSource. Sierra got wind of its awesomeness, and decided to give Rewolf some funds and retail publishing.
The result was, perhaps, the greatest game released in 2000.
It was, for whatever reason, the basis for fanmade Halo 4 art.
Yes, that is the Xenome monster that appears in Gunman Chronicles, most notably, in its intro.
The problem is, now gaming sites are using this for all their Halo: Reach articles.
Google Halo: Reach and you should see it on the front page!
Personally, I scarcely give a damn. Sure, it shows how dumb some game journalists can be, but what can you do about it? Sue Bungie? Sue over 9000 gaming sites? Since Sierra is dead and that the majority of console gamers today won’t have ever heard of awesome games like Gunman Chronicles, it is not in Bungie’s slight interest to attempt to remove this fake fan art from the web.
Besides, think of it like this: Gunman Chronicles is responsible for Halo Reach’s success.
Feel better now, don’t ya?
We’re slowly getting back in our regular time tables.
Hopefully next time, the Roundup should be on time, same with the L4D News.
A big article should be coming soon based around Phillip’s recent Valve-related article, as should that huge mod update article we’ve been mentioning.
