With the release of Halo 4 right around the corner, Halo fever is in full effect. People will be lining up to get their hands on the game (and hey, if you want to avoid the lines and score a free Xbox 360 in the process, you can always enter our GameStop Halo 4 giveaway). With anticipation for the release mounting, we got to chat with video game journalist Geoff Keighley last week. Geoff was just coming off a visit to New York Comin-Con, and he’s working with Mountain Dew and Doritos to promote the launch of Double XP, where gamers can get access to exclusive features and enhance the Halo 4 multiplayer experience through DEWXP.com.
