Halo 4 Midnight Launch in Toronto

Halo 4 launched at Midnight on this cold November evening to a warm reception from fans. As of this writing, on Metacritic there are currently 7 perfect reviews and only a single negative review with most reviews falling in the 80 – 90% range. UNSC Infinity TorontoHalo 4 Launch EventIn Toronto, fans were able to participate in a series of activities to test their knowledge of the Halo universe, shoot a laser gun, measure their brain waves, and of course sneak in a game or two of competitive multi-player Halo.  At 9:30pm fans were treated to the full length version of the Forward Unto Dawn webseries.  At the conclusion of the 90 minute video, fans were greeted by the Master Chief himself.
