Check out the “Halo 3” special edition

Of the Seattle Times, that is.

“Halo 3” is on A1 and the covers of the Local News, Business (twice) and Northwest Life sections. Yikes.

At least we didn’t have Master Chief hanging around the newsroom, like the Vancouver Sun.

I’ll bet the coverage will be like the game itself — intense, but relatively short, so you’ll have to go online if you still want more.

Of the 3,000 Halo stories I’ve read around the Web in the past few days, my favorite may be the Telegraph’s mammoth feature on the game, the studio and the fans.

I’m glad we were early writing about studio manager Harold Ryan and the business importance of the game. It would have been lost in the flood today.

An early response to today’s piece on the local influence on the game’s design came from a copy editor working with the story on Saturday. She could tell that Bungie art director Marcus Lehto is a newcomer to Seattle by this quote:

“It’s no coincidence that we see Mount Rainier on the horizon every day like that.”

Rainier is often shrouded in fog, she said, “which makes it such a treat when it comes into full view, which isn’t every day!”

I guess you can get your Rainier fix on the Xbox now, for $59.99.
