Everyday Armor

il_570xN_469227942_tum3 Anyone who has worn Halo Spartan Armor can tell you that it is a pain in the ass to put on and can be pretty uncomfortable to wear.  But not anymore!

MITMUNK Printed Apparel  has created a variety of “Bionic Leggings” which look to be just about the comfiest  armor you could choose. Who needs a special occasion to dress up in armor when you have these?

MITMUNK sells the Bionic  Leggings in pink, as well as in a few other colors. The store also features leather and chainmail armor leggings.

Making Halo a Career

Calling all Halo fans! Do you consider yourself a Halo expert? Do you have every detail of the Halo universe engrained into your brain? If so, 343 Industries is looking for you!Halo

“343 Industries at Microsoft Studios is looking for a certified Halo expert to join the team that builds and maintains the fiction of the Halo universe. If you already know off the top of your head how much an Unggoy weighs, the maximum top speed of a Warthog, and how big a Halo ring is, you might be interested in being a part of the franchise team responsible for creating new Halo stories across an ever-growing collection of games, books, comics, and live action video.”

The job responsibilities include:

  •  Play and intimately understand the Halo universe. “Attention to detail” would be putting it lightly for your role understanding and communicating everything in Halo games and extended fiction.
  • Work closely and well with content partners in all forms of media, and represent Halo, 343 Industries, and Microsoft as a face for external partners and sometimes fans.
  •  Plan, write, and edit all needed pivots on Halo lore, including (but not limited to) articles, scripts, and reference libraries and documentation. All of this material must be comprehensive and easy to understand even by partners new to Halo.
  • Demonstrate daily judgment regarding how to balance the history of Halo against new opportunities to grow the universe, as well as creative problem-solving about how to blend those two needs when necessary.

This job was posted on January 7, so if you are interested in applying, you should act fast. To apply, you must submit a resume as well as a writing sample which (in 1000 words or less) creates  ” a comprehensive summary of the concept of ‘The Mantle’ as it currently exists in game and expanded universe fiction.”
