An Eye For An Eye Only Ends Up Making The Whole World Blind

Yesterday, Bungie revealed some of the new multiplayer modes in the upcoming Halo: Reach, and the new names sounded eerily familiar. We already know by now that I'm an avid CrimeCraft player, and oddly enough, three of the new names are modes in CC. Headhunter has you collecting loot from AI-driven enemies; Stockpile is a resources gathering mode where AI bots are protecting loot boxes; and Generator Defense is similar to safeguard in CrimeCraft, where you protect an objective from waves of enemies that are trying to blow it up. I'm sure the Bungie people have never even heard of CrimeCraft, but this is quite a coincidence.

On a much sadder note, Type O Negative singer Peter Steele, 46, passed away yesterday from a heart condition. At 6'7'', the frontman was not only an imposing figure, but he also had a unique low heavy voice and was quite the gothic rock sensation in the late '90s. In his honor, I shall now play "My Girlfriend's Girlfriend."
