Halo: Outpost Discovery Behind the Scenes 3 May 29, 2019

The guys working on Halo: Outpost Discovery have just released an all-new Behind the Scenes video on something they plan to have on display at the show’s Hall of History, the M-12 Light Reconnaissance Vehicle, better known as the Warthog.

Since Outpost Discovery was first announced we knew a full-sized Warthog was going to be on display on the show’s floor, but we didn’t know which one they were going to use. Up until this point, I’ve known Microsoft has made at least two Warthogs and while either one of them could have been used on the show floor, both have issues with their use.

The first official real-world Warthog was constructed by WETA for the cancelled Halo feature film. That Warthog was later used in Halo: Landfall short film and had a cameo in Halo 4: Forward Until Dawn. Last I checked, it was back in New Zealand in the WETA workshop. A cousin of my neighbor saw it on display during a public tour of the facility. They weren’t allowed to say it’s name on the tour and my neighbor’s cousin doesn’t play Halo but when I asked her, “Did you see a big green Jeep with a chain gun in the back?” she said yes.

The second Warthog was 3D printed by a California-based company from the 3D models created for Halo 4. It is enormous, scaled for a person over seven feet tall to drive, but it looks more like a giant RC-car than a real vehicle of war. Last I checked it is currently on display at the at Petersen Museum in LA for the “Vehicles of Science-Fiction and Fantasy” show. Since that show will be going on for another year, Outpost Discovery can’t use that ‘hog either.

Now we can confirm they will be building their own from scratch. Take a look at it while it is still under construction.

I think it looks more like a Puma.

Last night, while many of us were glued to the 2019 Pokémon Press Event, Sony PlayStation was hosting a stream of their own in anticipation for Death Stranding, a Hideo Kojima game that defies all labels. The stream itself was quite odd, with most of the visuals obscured by shifting graphics of hands for quite some time. Earlier today, this video was posted.

Death Stranding is coming November 8th, 2019 exclusively for the PlayStation 4.

Last night, The Pokémon Company made some major announcements about their plans for upcoming Pokémon games, hardware and software over the next two years. While we didn’t see anything from Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield (because those games will be previewed on a Pokémon Direct on June 5th) they did announce a new Pokémon game for the Nintendo Switch I was not expecting.

So if you missed the 2019 press event when it initially streamed, here’s the video of the entire show. Enjoy.

Pokémon Sleep is coming to smartphones in 2020. Pokémon Go is out now for smartphones. Pokémon Home is coming to Smartphones and Nintendo Switch in 2020. Detective Pikachu 2 is coming exclusively to the Nintendo Switch.
