Halo Community Update - 04/20/17 'Fog of War'
This week's Halo Community Update went live last night (Thanks for the heads up, munky-058!) on Waypoint. Grim reminds of Halo Wars: DE's standalong release, the next Reach-themed LootCrate, some new Halo 5 playlist changes, community spotlights and a great guide to Halo's novels and stories. There's also an update from Sketch announcing the delay of Halo Wars 2 DLC, 'Colony'. Seems a bug with the new Lekgelo bugs bugged them enough to ask for extra time to squash 'em. You can read the whole thing over at HaloWaypoint! (MacGyver10 21:26:29 UTC) (permalink)

HBO Throwback Thursday - When We First Saw the Hunters, We Were Blinded By How 'Anime' They Looked Apparently
With all the recent excitement over the Lekgelo coming to Halo Wars 2 as a new leader, I ran across this old article on HBO of the initial sighting of a Hunter in Halo: Combat Evolved. It was first shown in a copy of Computer Games Magazine No#117 August 2000 (<--- Did you see the issue number? Was that coincidence???) and spotted by an HBOer named Davin! You can discuss it in our forum too! (MacGyver10 18:10:55 UTC) (permalink)

The new episodes of Red Vs Blue started this past weekend, but I'm sure there are many who haven't been following the longest running web series ever since it's beginning (here on HBO, by the way) in 2002, not in 2003 like their video description says. To help those people catch up, RoosterTeeth released 'The Complete, Unabridged Story of Red vs Blue. Abridged' for you! (MacGyver10 19:54:01 UTC) (permalink)
