I ask Forward Unto Dawn director Stewart Hendler how he prepared to tackle the franchise and what kind of research went into his work. "I knew a lot about it already, but now I know more than any human being should." Hendler, admittedly not a huge video game guy himself, but he's no stranger to long-form web series, having helmed the Bryan Singer-produced H+. Now, he's bringing his experience to bear on the five-part story of the beginnings of the human-Covenant War which occupied much of the Halo series.

It takes a big man to step into the shoes of the Master Chief--literally: the Halo super soldier stands at around 6'7" by some estimates. And to play the character, it takes an actor able to show some emotion from behind a polarized glass visor. Enter Daniel Cudmore, who's filled genre roles as hulking characters in features like X-Men: The Last Stand Volturi guard Felix in the Twilight films, with an upcoming role in the Billy Bob Thornton/Eva Longoria redneck action-comedy The Baytown Outlaws .

When we spoke recently about his role in the 5-part web series, Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, he talked about how odd it was going from a gamer to playing the Master Chief. "It's funny, because back in the day, my girlfriend--now my wife--bought me Halo 3," he explains, saying that although he didn't know too much about the Halo universe, "I remember playing that game from front to back and thinking that was a really cool concept."

You know what? Now I have no excuse to go avoid giving the Resistance series another shot. I never really warmed to the few hours I spent with the 2006 original, Resistance: Fall of Man, and I left the eventual sequels alone because, you know, I hadn't finished the first one.

Ridiculous circular logic.

Black Ops 2's zombie mode will be making a moveable feast out of the surviving players, who'll hop on a bus for a trip around the bombed-out Nuketown. Contrary to my best guess last week, it doesn't look like players will be defending the bus in some kind of mobile zombie-killing rig.

Also: hair metal.

You can get the Nuketown map with a preorder of the Hardened or Care Package editions of Black Ops 2 for the PS3, PC, and Xbox 360. No word on if a similar edition will be available for the Wii U port.
