Battle Golf Gameplay Shows Off New Custom Scoring, Item Detection and Objective Markers Coming in New Update
You have to deal with Gamespot's wonderful video player, but if you want to see some gameplay of the new 'Battle Golf' gametype coming to Halo 5, it's up now. Kind of gives you an idea of custom scoring, item detection and objective markers that are coming to Forge and what it sounds like to have a grunt as your gameplay announcer too!

Fan Fiction Friday featuring Chapters 3 and 4 of LORC: Beginnings Act 2
I feel like this is a very Louis Wu-like thing to say, but I've been horrible on checking the Fan Fiction area of our site the past while and missed out on the latest LORC! You can read chapters 3 and 4 of LORC: Beginnings Act 2 now on our website, and having gone through it myself already, it might make you long for the Flood to come back in the video games like it did for me! HWPD does very well in capturing the grotesque horror of the parasites! (MacGyver10 16:53:55 UTC) (permalink)
