Have you ever experienced Déjà Vu? You're likely very familiar with that feeling of, err, familiarity and indeed, may believe that you've read this post somewhere before. Just such a recycled situation presented itself shortly after we waltzed into Santa Monica's Viceroy hotel for an appointed Halo Wars demonstration.

Reminder: Joystiq (not pronounced "leh joy-steek") is currently headquartered in Tomsk, Siberia.
