Risk Your Life For Co-Op Deals This Friday

You're on a dark street, all alone.  Suddenly, hideous screams pierce the silence.  The ground beneath you starts to tremble.  Suddenly, you see them: a huge horde of ravenous figures with glazed eyes, shambling towards the light.  You try to run, but they are too strong.  You are knocked off your feet and totally incapacitated by the pale-faced swarm.

Halo 3 and Hard Drive Installs Don't Cooperate

With all the avatars and Netflix and overall slickness, you might have forgotten one long-awaited feature of the New Xbox Experience(tm).  Installing games to the hard drive to speed up loading was certainly overdue.  I know there are a few games I have that make the disc drive on my 360 sound like a jet engine.  It seems to be a good thing that Halo 3 isn't one of them.  Installing the game to the hard drive actually increases load times!  Wonder how that works?  Bungie's Chief Caching Officer Mat Noguchi (there's a catchy title) explains.
