Link Dumps Hurt My Head
Okay, buckle in, this is gonna be a monster. I'm gonna try to summarize all the new Halo 4/PAX links we've got at this point... and there are a LOT. Before I get into individual links/posts, let's start with a summary Homeboyd put up on NeoGAF last night - it has links to a couple of dozen sources of information, nicely broken down by category. I'd recommend reading this first. THEN go through the list below.
- AvatarAwards has a listing of the Halo 4 avatar awards you can unlock in-game. (MixMaker1 actually put together a video with this information, if you're better at hearing/seeing than reading.)
- IGN pulled out the Exile gameplay from the Halo 4 panel video, so if you're in a hurry and don't want to watch the whole panel, they've got you covered.
- Looks like Prima Games is not only working with 343 to put together the Halo 4 Strategy Guide... they're also working with MLG. Interesting twist! (Thanks, CyReN.)
- Part 1 of Ghaleon's PAX Halo 4 impressions (which covered core gameplay) was in Homeboyd's link... but Part 2 (covering new features) isn't. Part 3 is still coming.
- There's a YouTube link for the 343 BTS 'A Hero Awakes' in that original link... but nillapuddin pointed out that the nearly 700mb hi-res file is now available on Xbox.com's press site.
- Der Flatulator went through a boatload of off-screen vids, and itemized all of the Armor Abilities, Tactical Packages, and Support Upgrades that were visible in this build of the game.
- Duji added a Light Rifle-heavy gameplay vid to the corpus.
- Plywood was kind enough to upload the full 1GB file I used to make the YouTube link posted last night to Mediafire - if you can handle RAR files, download all 6 parts and you'll have a version of the Exile CTF game that has none of YouTube's compression artifacts. I wish I had the bandwidth to supply a single-segment version of this... but I don't. Plywood... you rock.
- Dust Storm has been pretty busy - he uploaded a couple of new vids to PodtacTV. The Halo 4 Reborn panel from Saturday night was in Homeboyd's post - but a short interview with Kevin Grace and Kynan Pearson, about the changes to CTF, was not.
- Halo Base uploaded a montage video containing all campaign clips uploaded to date - interesting combination!
- samurai let us know that Halo Orbit has put together a picture showing all the Halo 4 helmets shown to date - useful!
- Firestream sent us a pair of wallpaper links (First | Second) - gorgeous!
There are other newsbits in the queue, and it's really possible I'll actually get to them today... but for now, that should help. (Louis Wu 18:00:27 UTC)
