Halo news back Sunday, June 10, 2012 Halo news forward

52 enter, 1 Spartan leaves
Rockslider's back with more megabattle goodness. This time, it's three separate videos - the first is a 10-minute tutorial, showing how he set up this latest masterpiece... and the other two show a variety of outcomes. Go read about 'em, and watch! (Louis Wu 22:17:45 UTC) (permalink)

Putting a Hex on your iPad
It must be a "slow news day", because Beorn's name is appearing twice! This time he stopped by to let us know he's whipped up a way for you to use the cool "hex grid-pattern" found in Halsey's Journal on your iPad. Details are given in his post. Give it a look!

Neighbor and Elamite - H4 Impressions
Oops, wrote this up a couple of hours ago and forgot to post it. Elamite and Neighbor talked to Bravo about their impressions of Halo 4 from the time they got to play at E3 - give it a watch for thoughts from a couple of pros! (One thing to keep in mind - they seem to be drawing wide conclusions from the slice of gameplay they were exposed to. Maybe listen while keeping in mind that the feedback is valid to what they saw, but that extrapolating might be risky.) Thanks, CyReN. (Louis Wu 19:34:47 UTC) (permalink)

lybertyboy dispenses goodies from 30,000 feet
David Ellis was really pretty busy answering questions all week - in fact, yesterday, during a plane flight, he decided to answer even MORE questions, by setting up an impromptu Q&A session at NeoGAF. Rather than make you comb through a few hundred posts for the Ellis-penned nuggets of wisdom, we compiled them all on this page. Go see! (Louis Wu 19:17:01 UTC) (permalink)

Some Random Questions (and Answers) from 343 Devs
On the final day of E3, I put together a few Halo 4 questions that had come up from either watching the released footage, or playing the available games, or just from conversations from other fans - and I went to find someone from 343 that would be willing to answer them. I found Kevin Franklin (Lead Multiplayer Designer) and David Ellis (Multiplayer Designer and Mad Mouthpiece), and they answered a huge swath of the questions we had. (There were a few they refused to touch - but hey, that's to be expected.) You can find the questions, and the summaries of their answers, on this page. There is no real order or organization to the page - it's basically just the order in which we asked the questions. Enjoy! (Louis Wu 19:13:46 UTC) (permalink)

MLG Takes to TV, via CBS
Forbes points out that CBS will be broadcasting Major League Gaming on TV this fall... and that this venue will be used to showcase exclusive features for Halo 4. Nice! Thanks, CyReN. Update: or maybe not. (Louis Wu 19:09:21 UTC) (permalink)

Kblocker and Out Cold - For the Love of the Game 3
Kblocker posted a Halo Dualtage at The Halo Forum a few days ago - gameplay and editing both come from Kblocker himself and his buddy Out Cold. Pretty nice clips, and nice (understated) editing - worth a watch! (Louis Wu 19:01:24 UTC) (permalink)

Woaf sent word a few days ago that Dust and Echoes Episode 12 was online - it was recorded before E3, but you can see how well they did on their expectations! Go listen. (Louis Wu 18:43:39 UTC) (permalink)

Grabbing the Bulletin By The Horns
The latest Halo Bulletin came to us yesterday recounting the awesome build-up, excitement, and success of E3. Lots of pics and some great behind-the-scenes tidbits are there. Definitely worth the read! You can also grab it locally too, of course. <3 (GrimBrother One 16:40:26 UTC) (permalink)

T00LBOX dropped in to tell us about a new video he's added to his equally-new YouTube channel. The video depicts another absolutely amazing trick, this time in Halo: Reach.
