Gary Gygax

Gary Gygax, one of the creators of the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game, died Tuesday morning at his home in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, he was 69.

Gygax co-wrote the original D&D game in 1974, and went on to create the Dangerous Journeys as well as a number of board games. He went well beyond the role of game developer and became an icon to gamers, appearing as himself in episodes of Futurama and participating in discussions on role-playing-related message boards as well as appearing at gaming conventions everywhere.

In a 2005 interview with Game Spy interview Gygax was quoted as saying:

“I would like the world to remember me as the guy who really enjoyed playing games and sharing his knowledge and his fun pastimes with everybody else.”

Rest In Peace.

Halo 3 Xbox 360

July 12th, 2007 by Al , Category : News

Halo 3 Xbox 360 

Microsoft is releasing a special edition Halo 3 Xbox 360 to coincide with the game’s release later this year.

The special Halo 3 edition Xbox will be painted to resemble the armor worn by Master Chief. The Halo 3 Xbox will be the 20GB model, but unlike the normal 20GB model, it has an HDMI output, so it’ll look awesome on an HDTV. It comes with a bunch of accessories, such as a Halo-themed controller, headset, and gamer pics. The only thing it won’t come with is; Halo 3. Also with no price cuts in the foreseeable future for the Xbox I wonder if it will sell many units. Come on of course it will sell. It’s a freakin’ Xbox with an HDMI output painted up like Master Chief’s duds. Of course it will sell.
