Nicolas Cage's Face On Halo Stuff Is Frightening And Kinda Awesome

This is Halo like you've never seen it before.

Did you ever play the original Halo: Combat Evolved and wish it had more Nicolas Cage?

Now you're in luck, as YouTuber Gunner (via Kotaku) has published two videos that show us what it would look like if the National Treasure actor's face was plastered everywhere in the acclaimed 2001 sci-fi game.

Cage is frightenly omnipresent in this version of the game. Thanks to the mod, which replaces Halo textures with Cage's face, we see the actor almost everywhere. His face is now Cortana's face, Master Chief's face; his face is now the HUD; he is everywhere.

Putting Nicolas Cage's face on things is something that happens on the Internet, so you shouldn't be surprised that someone finally put Nicolas Cage's face on Halo stuff. It's not even the first time we've seen Cage in a video game; a texture mod revealed in April allowed us to see Nicolas Cage in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which includes remastered versions of Halo 1-4 (without Nicolas Cage), launches on November 11 for Xbox One.

This would be funny if it was implemented better as most of the Nicolas Cage faces on the character models end up not even looking like Nicolas Cage. I also expected his face in a number of places it didn't show up. Color me unimpressed.

I think what these videos need is more Nicolas Cage.

This looks funny but should it really be in the news section?

From now on, whenever I DON'T see Cage's face on somebody's b.utt I'll be very disappointed. This should be a thing now.

That was really creepy, the medkit Cage and the Cortana Cage just like totally creeped me out. Though the Pilot of the escape pod did make me laugh.

They should make this an Easter egg or skull in halo MCC. And make it the hardest thing to unlock, like defeating all the games on legendary solo.

I was disappointed when Keyes turned around without Cage's face.

Thankfully I only watched 5 minutes, if I had seen anymore, I don't think I could ever play Halo again.

There should be a news story every day about the Crimes Against Nature mod for Skyrim that makes a Tommy Wiseau horse.

Meh as much as Nicolas Cage was good back in the old days, he hasn't had a hit movie like in years.

GS, you appear to be overstaffed with writers who have way too much time on their hands.  I believe a staff reduction should be in order.

Yeah, with the way the camera zoomed in (even though it always zooms that way), I was 100% expecting Keyes to look like him.
