Halo 4 Terminal - up on Waypoint
Halo Waypoint has a new video prologue to tease Halo 4's Domain Terminals - skip it if you're staying dark, but watch it if you can. Pretty interesting stuff! Thanks, Demoncarnotaur. (Louis Wu 18:28:33 UTC) (permalink)

Telikos Protocol, Episode 1
This isn't STRICTLY Halo-related, but it IS 'Halo-inspired', and one of the principals is a heavy-duty community member, so... If you visit Vanquish Interactive, you'll see that the crew will be on hand this week at New York Comic-Con, and will be selling Telikos Protocol Episode 1 (which was distributed digitally to backers of the Kickstarter project yesterday) at the show! The artwork is fantastic (there's a prelude, containing the first dozen or so pages of Issue 1, available here, for free) - well worth your time and money! Check it out.

IGN's Adrift Walkthrough
IGN has posted its walkthrough of Adrift, with commentary by 343's Kynan Pearson. (Go watch it now - looks like Microsoft has updated its Game Content Usage Rules, and the advertising attached to this video seems to be in direct violation of the new 'you can not earn any money for Halo content on YouTube' rule.) Thanks, CyReN. Update: Over at NeoGAF, Frank made it clear that these rules are not new, they've been in this form for months. And there will be clarifications forthcoming to help folks who are worried about what's permitted and what's not. Thanks, Frank. (Louis Wu 16:05:11 UTC) (permalink)
RVideo pointed out a Halo 3 communitage called 'Defrost' - each segment is edited by a different fan, so there's a nice variety of styles in this 11 minute montage. Overall, quality's pretty high, and gameplay is a lot of fun. Go watch! (Louis Wu 15:30:19 UTC) (permalink)

Do not use on your brain
Shadders noticed a really cool Energy Sword Table Lamp at Etsy - it ain't cheap ($75, plus shipping), but it's definitely gorgeous. Go look! (There are only 3 of 'em, so if you like, buy soon.) (Louis Wu 15:06:31 UTC) (permalink)
Halo 4: Making you want to explore
Digital Spy has an interview with Frank O'Connor - it's a great read. Frank talks about some of the overarching goals the team had as they put together the campaign, and how these play out in the finished game. There's also a nice description of the difference between an episodic campaign experience (like Spartan Ops) and a single-segment one (like the standard campaign). Worth your time! Thanks, bluerunner. (Louis Wu 15:01:56 UTC) (permalink)
T3 posted a Halo 4 preview - it contains campaign spoilers (minor) and some rather shallow generalizations. Take a look if you're trying to get your eyeballs on everything Halo 4. Thanks, TheOddOne.

Change of Plans
Red vs Blue Season 10 barrels on - Episode 18 was released last night... and it gives you a slightly different look at Church. (Slightly.) This one's pretty much devoid of humor... but what replaces it grounds the characters. Go watch. Thanks, Vincent.
