In Fall 2009, Bungie will release "Halo 3: Recon," which will serve as a prequel to the events in Halo 3.

The news was dropped during Microsoft's address at the Tokyo Game Show last week. Halo 3: Recon will put players in the boots of a UNSC recon soldier who will serve as a "new hero" for an all-new storyline and campaign.

The trailer footage shows a catastrophic explosion in a human city, the result of the Covenant's invasion of Earth. The camera then pans to show a group of heavily armored Brutes, the ape-like Covenant aggressors featured prominently in Halo 3's storyline.

The game is being developed by Bungie, the newly independent studio responsible for the original Halo trilogy. Microsoft mentioned a Fall 2009 release date on the Xbox 360.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
