343 Industries Asks the ElDewrito Team to Halt Work on 'Halo Online' and Discusses Community Content
Looks like the inevitable was addressed yesterday, as 343 Industries shared over at HaloWaypoint that they and Microsoft are strongly encouraging the ElDewrito team to cease working on their 'Halo Online' project. If you remember, 'Halo Online' was a game Microsoft released only in Russia to test the waters for Halo on PC, but cancelled shortly after. It's a tricky situation, but one 343 Industries explains very well I felt in their Waypoint post. (Thanks munky-058!) (MacGyver10 18:28:55 UTC) (permalink)

Halo Community Update 04/12/18 - 'Worlds Renown'
Rightfully so, but a very Halo World Championship-themed Community Update this week from our prodigal, GrimBrotherOne. There is the obvious and heavy amount of content for our version of the Super Bowl, but some cool stuff in particular are the free stuff you can get for watching on Mixer this weekend, your last chance to get the Arena-themed Legendary Crate and some recaps of other HCS events. Ske7ch did a great job culling content from the community as well (check out that aesthetic map for the Titanic)! (MacGyver10 21:56:07 UTC) (permalink)

Sometimes a PJ Masks band-aid just won't cut it, but if you were thinking a Marine medic could just pop a can of biofoam in you, then before today, you might be waiting another 500 years.
