Halo Ringtones page updated

January 4th, 2008

I’ve updated the Halo Ringtones page with a bunch of MP3 Halo 3 ringtones from XBox Mobile that normally are only available to download when you view the site on your mobile phone. I’ve mirrored them here since some of them are now unavailable on XBox Mobile, and also to make it easier to download them.

Halo 3 ARG – Iris

June 21st, 2007

There’s lots of stuff I’ve been meaning to post recently, including my final impressions of the Halo 3 Beta, but they’ll have to wait. The “Halo Nation” is abuzz over Iris – the Halo 3 ARG. So far there haven’t been many puzzles to solve, but rather we’ve been led from place to place. There’s lots of coverage at Hushed Casket, but I’m following things over at the newly created forums at

I’m not going to go into the progress so far in detail here, but it started with the appearance of AdjutantReflex on the Halo 3 forum, and links to, which in turn led to and a countdown site at The countdown finished abruptly as AdjutantReflex was destroyed/asimilated by something older, more powerful, and now you are redirected to where there’s one of the “servers” that are referred to on the site.

Clicking on certain glyphs on the rotating machine provides several files to download, and also plays a movie. I’ve managed to re-encode the movie as a Quicktime Movie. You can download it by right-clicking here and chosing Save Target As… or whatever is equivalent in your browser. It looks like this ARG will give us more info on the Forerunner and the background to why they did what they did 100,000 years ago. I’m eager to find out more, but hopefully it will involve more puzzles and less just waiting around for the next thing to be revealed 🙂
