Community Column: Halo at the Xbox One Reveal Event
Well there we have it, the Xbox One. It appears that Microsoft took a leaf out of Apple's book with the nomenclature and came up with a name almost as original as "the new iPad"; but, as for the Xbox itself I'm actually really impressed.

So a lot of people are wondering if Simon "Ghost" Riley, who was last seen getting shot and then set on fire in the Modern Warfare 2 mission Loose Ends, is going to be returning in Call of Duty: Ghosts.
Since its Resurgence DLC, millions have battled through the maps, challenges, enemies, and hazards, as the N7 volunteers found ways on how to utilize each archetype when it comes to combat, when to go solo, stick with a partner or together.
