Gamespot has a new Forge video available - it shows off the three new Forge maps (Erosion, Impact, and Ravine), and lets you know what sort of environments you'll have to work in. Once again, 343's Kynan Pearson and Certain Affinity's Lori Zawada are your tour guides. Amazing! Thanks, Vire. (It's available on YouTube, as well - thanks, CyReN.)

GameOne takes on Halo4
Germany's GameOne posted a half-hour video spotlighting their experience at a Halo 4 press event (HaloGAF's Hypertrooper makes an appearance) - thanks, CrazY CroaTia. This might not have received coverage here at HBO (most of the footage is just discussion between the hosts, in German), but starting at 12:38 is an interview with Frank O'Connor, in English. I enjoyed it! (There are some minor campaign spoilers, if you're staying dark.) (Louis Wu 16:22:31 UTC) (permalink)

Tyrant's Halo 2 Legendary Walkthrough - Regret (x2)
The Tyrant is back with two separate guides for Halo 2's Regret - one shows how to get through in standard fashion, while the other tosses the Envy Skull into the mix, along with Swordflying and Sputnik-enabled grenade jumping. Decide whether you want to go pure, or enhanced... and get to watching! Update: apologies, Narcogen points out that Tyrant uses the Envy skull in BOTH vids; he's just not exploiting the checkpoint to get infinite invisibility in the first. Sorry!
