Talk Show Uses Online Xbox Game Halo for Its Stage

Stephen Bryant

Talk shows are usually relaxing programs set in comfortable, air-conditioned television studios, where the guests recline in plush habiliments under the reverent gaze of a live studio audience.

They're not usually hosted by a 7-foot-tall cyborg in a spacesuit, and set on an alien world where other cyborgs run rampant and try to shoot the guests.

But "This Spartan Life" is exactly that: a 30-minute talk show set and filmed entirely within Microsoft's extremely popular MMOG (massively multiplayer online game) for the Xbox, "Halo 2."

The show is produced by a four-person crew of media professionals and distributed online via the show's Web site.

In its few months of existence, "This Spartan Life" has attracted a small but devoted group of fans ranging from squeaky-voiced teenage gamers to media artists, video game producers, cultural critics, everyday comedy fans and even the Xbox production team itself.
