It is just minutes before I head to Dallas with my nephew Blake for a special pre-release party. It’s not just any pre-release party – its for one of the most popular video game franchises of all time – Microsoft’s Halo. That’s right, while the rest of the world gets Halo 3 tomorrow, we will be fragging our way through the brand new environments, testing out all the awesome new weapons, and of course creating both audio and video content all along the way.

One of the very cool things we are doing is handing out thumbdrives with Podcast Ready‘s myPodder software preinstalled. It is a very special Halo 3 edition of the software that is not only skinned with awesome H3 graphics but comes with some great podcasts already in the subscription list.

Blake and I have been watching H3 preview movies all night on the web and via XBox Live download and I am getting as pumped up as he has been for the past week. One of the coolest things I have seen so far is the Forge editing engine. While the developers are sure to have created some great maps… once you put an editor in the hands of the playing community – you get the truly amazing ones.
