Forward Unto Dawn: Parts 1 and 2

Written By: Bob - Oct• 12•12

I’ve mentioned before that I’m very interested in the Halo video game universe, both in the single-player campaign mode that pits you against the programmer’s mind, and the multi-player experience that sees me routinely slaughtered by 10-year-old Mexican kids.

I don’t know how I missed it until now, but the studio behind Halo 4 is putting some coin into a live-action web series called Forward Unto Dawn, following a group of cadets at a UNSC military academy as they prepare for war. They’ve got at least on face you’ll probably be surprised to recognize from a recent blockbuster movie franchise.

    The individual shorts are great too in lead-ups to the first show.

    These are top quality and the story is unique and compelling. It uses known actors and actresses too.

    Actually, you’re probably getting kicked by 10 year old South Korean kids. Those guys are some bad mofos. They even have professional videogame players there, who get the whole rock star treatment.

      Unless the Korean kids have learned rapid-fire Latin American Spanish, I’m pretty sure it’s the MX kids kicking my butt. I don’t stay up late enough for the KR kids to massacre me. :-)

    Try Red Dead Redemption multiplayer Bob, basically the same children slaughtering you but in the context of the old west circa 1911. Fascinating!
