Just before we received the news that “Halo 3 has gone Gold”:http://www.bungie.net/News/content.aspx?type=topnews&cid=12737, we were treated to a delectable little video demonstrating the awesomeness that is the Forge customization module in Halo 3. For every custom game fan, this is a dream come true. Forge is quite literally a drag-and-drop utility for customizing multiplayer maps. If something doesn’t quite meet your satisfaction, Forge will let you change things until everything is just right. Or it will simply let you monkey around with the settings to create new, interesting, or just plain wacky gametypes. And once you’re done messing with the settings and you’ve created just the right environment for some crazy, insane carnage, you can save your modified map out to Xbox Live and share it with all your friends. Bungie will then be able to pick out their favorites and incorporate them into matchmaking. Halo 3 is going to change the face of the way we play video games on Live.
