Halo Uprising #4 review.

After almost a year of delays, Halo Uprising #4 has finally hit store shelves. Who would of thought that a comic series with the Halo name stamped on it would suffer so many delays and after all this time, such a lackluster finish…

Halo Uprising is a four issue mini series that was suppose to bridge the gap between Halo 2 and Halo 3 and give Halo players some insight on what was going on during that period. What we get is a sappy love story about about a coward and a pop singer and a key that could change to face of the universe. The big plot shock: that key turns out to never exist in the first place. Oh yeah, the comic also has a few panels of Master Chief kicking ass, we have to have those.

Issue 4 kicks off with more sappy love story crap,a high-ranking official yelling at the coward, the coward taking a dangerous mission and in the end blowing a covenant ship to holy hell. If this sounds even remotely interesting, its not. The artwork itself is pretty cool, but the story just pretty much falls flat on its face. For a comic mini-series that ran for two years and only produced four issues, there’s no excuse that there wasn’t enough time to make this thing awesome. Most Halo fans should skip it unless they lack the final piece of the puzzle to a let down of a series.

Issues 4 rating: 1 out of 5 stars.

Halo Uprising mini-series review: 2 out of 5 stars.

Mirror's Edge Runners Bag

Originally a bundle item and now a hard to get collectors item. The official Mirror's Edge runners bag is loaded with pockets for all your fun stuff.. like legos and twinkies. I have found a yellow version of this bag on eBay, I cannot guarantee it's an original like the one pictured or a knock off.

Awesome Street Fighter 4 Poster

According to the seller of this item, they are only selling this SFIV design in Spain.
I did a search and I haven't been able to find this design in online retail outlets. If you find it let me know. Source link.

Call of Duty: World at War Fabric Banner

Easily one of the coolest posters I've seen for a game in a while. Not only is it for a great game, but it has an awesome design and it's fabric. Source link.

Soul Calibur IV Keychain, a must have for streeth brawls.

This is actually a really nice keychain for being a preorder item. You can pick them up in a variety of online auctions, a quick google search will help you track one down for yourself.

Destroy All Humans Bobble-Head

At the 2008 Penny Arcade Expo there was a Destroy All Humans! mascot running around giving away these sweet bobble-heads if you took a picture with the mascot and showed him proof on your digital camera. Well guess what, I never got one. But I did take a picture of him.

Item not available in stores, only ebay.
