Geek Binge: Well everyone, the time is almost here. Halo 4 will be among us next Tuesday and, after five years out of the saddle, Master Chief is back. Halo 4 is the first numbered entry in the series not developed by Bungie Studios, so the game more than has a lot to prove. Can the franchise thrive through the next decade sans Bungie? Has the Halo series grown stale over the years, or is it stronger than ever? Well early Halo 4 reviews are in and, by the looks of things, the game is a strong return to form for the franchise…and may have just outdone Bungie at their own game.
