Any day now, ‘Halo’ fans shall be released

This Halo 3 spot sure is epic. It looks like a close-up of someone’s Warhammer 40K diorama, which is sort of what playing Halo is like, but it’s actually a very well-constructed amalgam of the horrors of war and the splendor of amazing graphics. The game will be released on Tuesday, as will the throngs of fanboys who’ve been battling involuntary priapism since the first trailers were released. A full rundown of the marketing campaign can be found here, and the inevitable, hilarious nerdrush for copies of the game will begin Tuesday morning and continue for probably a week afterwards.
