Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


Halo: Initiation #3 Review

Posted on Monday, October 7 @ 09:48:50 PST by Keri_Honea
Halo: Initiation #2 ended with Sarah Palmer, brand new Spartan-IV, deciding to take matters into her own hands when the Infinity is hijacked by a woman name Ilsa Zane. The second issue led up to a potentially lengthy confrontation and solution, at least two issues, but it turns out that #3 is the last one of this series. As such, the ending with Ilsa Zane is as abrupt as it sounds, and I came away from the comic feeling a bit unsatisfied.

Yes, Sarah Palmer is a Spartan and she has ODST experience. However, I didn't expect her to be able to take down a woman who is held up to be the biggest threat this side of the Covenant in just half a page. I was expecting the Spartan-IVs to formulate this intricate plan that would take at least one issue to execute, especially after Jun explained who Zane was and what she was.

Instead, Palmer and just one other Spartan performed a RARRRRRR technique that I would typically attempt while playing a shooter. It's one thing when I do it in a game, it's another to read it in a comic where you expect something a little more grandiose. It honestly felt like the writer and artist were told this was the last issue of the story when they were halfway through creating the comic. I realize that the Halo loremakers are eager to get the next series, Escalation, out the door, but geez, do you have to cut off one series when it just started to get interesting?

At the very least, Initiation ends on a major cliffhanger, presumably for the sake of Escalation or possibly another comic series down the line. No. 3 isn't the best Initiation has to offer, but it definitely sets the backdrop for a future story in the Halo universe, so it's not an issue to miss while you're collecting your Halo lore.

Halo: Initiation #3, the last of Initiation, releases this Wednesday, October 9th in both physical and digitial media.
