Since a turkey dinner found on the floor was included as a health power up, gaming has had a long history featuring food. When I was a teenager, I used to frequent websites like the Gaming Gourmet, which tried to replicate the food found in popular games and provide real-world recipes for them. Sadly, many of those sites are now defunct. However, if you haven’t noticed, there has been an influx of gaming-themed cookbooks. This week, 343 Industries announced they will be publishing their own official Halo Cookbook! To celebrate, here’s a look at Halo: Infinite’s opening cinematic.

Am I the only person who thinks these recipes should be used for a future Outpost Discovery? Regardless, now we can finally learn how to make the MOA Burger! The cookbook is expected to release August 2022. Bring it on!

If you want to learn more about what kind of gaming cookbooks are out there and what recipes you can find in them, check out the reviews by the Youtube channel MisoHungrie.

Halo: Infinite is out now for PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.

Reminder: E3 2022 Cancelled April 2, 2022

We were exercising our vacation time when this news popped up but I just thought I would relay the news that E3 2022 has been cancelled, completely. There will be no onsite show and no online event to compensate.

When I was first starting off writing about video games back when I was in high school, E3 was a mythical event I aspired to attend like some NFL players wished they could play at the Super Bowl. I even was lucky enough to attend a few of the events myself. However, due to a combination of factors combined with the current world events, E3 has had to scale back their show for the past few years, and the streaming events they held instead of their onsite show has not been as successful as other previously-existing offerings.

E3 intends to return in 2023z

We’ve known for some time that a Halo television series has been coming. In fact, it was officially announced alongside the Xbox One reveal…about a decade ago. Now, after being pulled from one network to another, the series is finally starting to release episodes. To celebrate, the first episode has been released (by the creators) on YouTube. There’s no word for how long the episode will stay up so you should watch it now while you can!

Gaming History You Should Know – The History of Rogers: The Musical April 1, 2022

Happy April Fool’s Day! No one could ever forget where they were during the events of the Battle of New York, where the Earth survived its first-ever alien invasion due to the heroic intervention of a Billionaire, a Norse God, The World’s Greatest Archer, The World’s Greatest Assassin, a gamma-irradiated supergenius, and a WWII-era super soldier. We’ve come to know them as The Avengers and for the past decade they’ve been Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, capable of fighting the battles we never could. Personally, I’ve lost track of the amount of times they’ve saved the world, either individually or as a group, so you’ll forgive me for glossing over their reputation. I for one am just grateful for their service.

Following the events of The Blip and The Battle of Earth, which saw the tragic deaths of Iron Man, Black Widow and Captain America, The Avengers have all but dissolved. In the time since the Battle of Earth, video game adaptations of The Avengers’ exploits continue to live on with the phenomenal Ultimate Alliance series, and the upcoming Spider-Man and Wolverine games by Insomniac. But recently, there has been a different kind of adaptation over the past year, the Tony-Award Winning Megablockbuster, Rogers: The Musical. Based on the life of the late Steve Rogers, who we know as Captain America, the musical has been a tremendous success setting ticket records Broadway hadn’t seen in years.

YouTube Channel Wait in the Wings, which we’ve featured before on this website, did a phenomenal history video on one of the greatest musicals ever made. How do you create such a masterpiece when half your production staff disappear for five years? To say it was an Avengers-Level challenge would be an understatement.

Apple has just released a minor but important system update for pretty much every device they make earlier today. The new update includes fixes for a battery drain issue as well as two important security fixes. You can get it right now through your device’s software update menu.

The update has been released for iPad, iPhone, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV. I would recommend downloading and installing as soon as possible.
