Halo 4 Flood Multiplayer Mode Walkthrough
IGN also has a direct-feed Flood mode video - Kevin Franklin tells you all about the mode. Thanks, IHaveIce. (Louis Wu 17:32:46 UTC) (permalink)
Words and Sounds
It's been a busy few days, and I've been remiss - Bungie has published a new Mail Sack (heist movies, nicknames, and advice for the lovelorn) and a new Breaking In (Stephen Hodde, Audio Designer, awesome stories) since late last week - go read 'em! (Louis Wu 17:23:17 UTC) (permalink)
IGN Introduces Abandon
IGN has a video with 343's Kynan Pearson introducing yet another new multiplayer map - this one's called Abandon. It's a small (4v4), asymmetrical map geared towards CTF, though it looks like it'll work nicely in Slayer as well. It's an abandoned science facility - can't wait to try it out! Thanks, Beckx. Update: The Halo Council already has a breakdown for you (thanks, CyReN). (Louis Wu 16:41:41 UTC) (permalink)
Mantis, Ep 1
Hedgemony also paid tribute to the new Mantis, with a new comic cover. I'd read that!

New content from the Dust and Echoes crew - they've got a Eurogamer Special podcast, covering their impressions of the event (and new Halo 4 material revealed there), as well as the first episode of DAE TV, showing off a new map and some 1v1 CTF. Go listen, go watch!

Halo 4 Mantis Desktop Wallpaper Pack
Firestream was pretty impressed with the Mantis - so much so that he created a set of wallpapers in tribute. Go grab some! (Louis Wu 16:33:56 UTC) (permalink)
High-profile toy spotting
We have a pretty strict no-politics policy on our forum, but this isn't really politics, per se... Mig noticed that Halo toys show up at the beginning of one of the most recent Obama promotion pieces. Nice! (Louis Wu 16:27:32 UTC) (permalink)
Remember Me How I Was
Red vs Blue Season 10 Episode 17 went live last night - Church helps Carolina come to grips with some feelings... and (re)learns some critical pieces of the puzzle. Good stuff! Go watch.

Walshy grenade tutorial
MLG celeb Walshy has released a video that looks at how grenades have worked in past Halo games... and speculates on what this means in Halo 4. I found it fascinating - definitely worth your time. Thanks, Pok3R Fac3D.

One final Ollie is All that Remains
I saw this yesterday on Halo Waypoint, but didn't get to posting it - Globe is creating Halo-branded shoes and a skateboard. Funky! (Louis Wu 16:08:04 UTC) (permalink)
Halo 4 | Enlist Now
If you live in Europe, Microsoft is running a promotion that might interest you. Twenty lucky fans (five each from the UK, France, Spain, and Germany) will be whisked to an unknown location on October 30 for what will almost certainly be an amazing experience. You must be 18 years or older, and you must be a resident of the country associated with the landing page you fill out. Thanks, Hypertrooper. (Louis Wu 16:04:58 UTC) (permalink)
