The Washington Post has compiled a list of some of your entertainment opportunities out now:
“Halo 4,” for Xbox 360
Since its debut as an Xbox exclusive in 2001, the Halo franchise has been one of the video-game industry’s heavy hitters, not only earning billions, but also spawning best-selling novels, comic books and toys.
The fourth installment of the series is something of a turning point for Master Chief and crew. The first of a new trilogy, this title also is the first core Halo property not developed by Bungie. Newcomer 343 Industries, which produced a remake of the original Halo last year, is taking over the franchise and bringing with it new-look multiplayer gameplay, an emphasis on level exploration and a soundtrack by frequent Massive Attack collaborator Neil Davidge.
This is sure to be one of the holiday season’s biggest movers.
