Giant Bomb on Halo Waypoint

Do you have an Xbox 360 and an Xbox Live Gold membership? Do you love Giant Bomb videos? Then check this out!


 LOOK MA I'M ON THE TEEVEE BOX!
So for the past few weeks we've been in contact with the folks behind Halo Waypoint, Microsoft's hub for all things Halo on the Xbox 360. As of this weekend, the fruits of those labors have started to ripen, and you can now savor the sweet nectar of select Halo-focused Giant Bomb videos on your Xbox 360! Like it was fruit!  Metaphors!

We've currently got two videos up on Waypoint: there's "You Say Goodbye, I Say Halo" a featurette that does such a perfect job of compressing the punch-drunk insanity of our attempted six-and-a-half hour live stream of the end of original Xbox Live that it gives me combat flashbacks. If you're looking for more reasons to get pumped up about the pending Halo: Reach Multiplayer Beta, we've also got "Ask Me Anything: Halo: Reach Beta" where Vinny grills Drew and Brad about their recent hands-on time with the next addition to the Halo family. 

If you haven't already, you can grab Halo Waypoint through the Games section on your 360, or you can queue it up through Xbox.com. Once you load it up, just hit the Intel button, and you'll (as of this writing) see both videos in the What's New section. You will need an Xbox Live Gold account to use Halo Waypoint, but this is by far the easiest way (at the moment) to get some Giant Bomb video action on your big-ass TV. Also, I personally get really jazzed when I get to see Giant Bomb content up on the Xbox like that, and the more people that watch these videos, the better the chances are we'll get to do more stuff like this in the future!

 I'll have to be sure to look out for this. Quite awesome. Haven't actually installed Halo Waypoint yet, but yeah, this is a heck of an incentive, helping Giant Bomb out to do awesome things.

Posted by Metal_Mills

Posted by Berezov

Oh cool I'll be watching this tonight, good job guys.

Posted by benitobb

Wish I had my 360 with me right now, this is amazing.
Posted by CharlesAlanRatliff

I will definitely check this out when Microsoft sends me a 360 that works! Why RROD why nooooow

Downloading it while my girlfriend plays Fable, she's not going to like the part where I ask her to stop momentarily.

Posted by ProfessorEss

Nice job.

Posted by fwylo

Awesome, this will be crazy advertising for GiantBomb as well.  Expect a few new users.

That's awesome guys! Soon as I can I'll be firing up my system to check out the vids on my 'not so big-ass' TV. Hope to see more and keep up the good work!! 
 
GB FOOTBALL RULES!!!

I don't like Halo but I love GiantBomb doing videos on the teevee.

Posted by Devilsalias

That's awesome guys, pretty soon there will be quick looks on XBOX LIVE VIDEO MARKETPLACE!

Posted by Belonpopo

Kewl.

Posted by JJWeatherman

I watched the videos on Waypoint. I think my gamertag popped up on the end of Xbox live video for just a half a second. Awesome.

Posted by Hitchenson

That's awesome. I'll continue to watch all the videos on the site, but it's cool it's happening. 

Posted by Bhouse563

If this works out (which it will) You guys should push for a monthly or weekly spot on the Dashboard!!!!!

Posted by zombie2011

Wow this is pretty awesome, this is great advertising for the site. MS and Giantbomb!

Posted by OmegaRedSix

Man, can things get any better than combining Giant Bomb and Halo Waypoint? I submit to you that they cannot.

Posted by Ashen

Dude what? this is awesome, time to dl halo waypoint.

Posted by TerraDelu

Way to go guys! Super awesome to see you dudes on Xbox Live!

Posted by Hamz

Kind of makes me wish I had a 360 just to view this on my big ass TV.
 
Still a big congratulations to the team, this was a triumph!

Edited by MeatSim

Giantbomb on the big screen!

Posted by Pazy

I dont have Gold (dont play online enough) or a good enough connection to just watch both videos without reason but I might if they are good enough but I have to ask if the video's are unuiqe. Is it the same stuff you can get here or is it only on Waypoint? If its only on Waypoint I might put in a 48 hour card I have lying around to watch it.

Huge news for GB! Well done.

Posted by Milkman

I didn't get to see the monster 6 hour stream so the Waypoint video was a perfect way of getting a shortened version of that.

Giant Bomb on MY Xbox? It's more likely than you think. 

Posted by Bummey

Gold members only, of course. :|

*tear* 
 
...they grow up so fast

Posted by Spookie

I guess that explains why the site dropped quicker than a hookers knickers.

Posted by Dustpan

This is fabulous.

Posted by Blair

Fantastic exposure, boys!  I'm so glad to be a part of this.

Posted by Bennyishere

This is great! GiantBomb will see so much success that Microsoft does a deal with them, and we will be seeing complete Giant Bomb integration, including an app on your 360 that lets you access all the features of GiantBomb. Then... world domination.

Posted by crusader8463

Sigh, sad to see giant bomb content being locked behind pay gates. I hope it's going to be up on the site eventually. I suppose grats for getting on something like that, I'm sure it will boost site views, but boo on you for locking away content behind the god dam gold account scam that is x-box live.

Posted by PerryVandell

This is awesome, Giant Bomb is expanding and getting more notice.

Edited by soralapio
More Drew = more fun. Don't see why this wouldn't be true on Xbox Live!
Posted by Fubar

Gonna wait for the PSN version ...

Edited by Lilarcor
The more exposure Giant Bomb gets, the better. I'm not a big Halo fan, but I'll definitely download these videos (through my Xbox, I've already watched them on the site) in order to give you guys a boost. 
 
@crusader8463:
Dude, you know these videos are both on the site already and have been for days... right?
Posted by ISmoochyI

sooooo sweet!

Posted by alternate

would be nice to have site version of the edited live stream.

Posted by Lambert

So, I'm guessing this game will be getting a 5/5 now...
 
Sellouts...

Posted by Sanryd

This is awesome! I didn't watch the whole livestream, only caught the beginning, so it'll be cool to see the highlights.

Posted by ez123
@Lilarcor: "You Say Goodbye and I say Halo" on Waypoint seems to be a different video.  It's an edited version of Xboxalypse but I haven't seen it anywhere else.
Posted by Dustpan

Ryan is wearing one fancy shirt.

congrats guys...it's well deserved
