I love the idea of web-series on the net. Especially when its video game related. Halo 4 is coming this month and to prepare fans for the 4th installment, Microsoft invested in a web-series called Forward Unto Dawn. The web-series debuted on October 5 and the second episode just came out. Have a look at the first two episodes now.
A new episode comes out every friday until the day Halo 4 gets released. So far, I'm liking this web-series. I'm not a big fan of Halo's story, but it's definitely a good introduction for people who have no idea about the Halo universe.
