Free XP and Armor - only a little cheating
There are a bunch of unlocks for various goodies hidden throughout Halo 4, and the folks on the Halo Waypoint forums are doing a great job of documenting them. However, since the solutions are spread out across a LOT of pages of posts, Shadders was kind enough to gather the info together in a single post on his Little English Halo Blog. Skip this if you like to solve puzzles on your own. Swing by if you're lazy and just want goodies. (Louis Wu 18:37:39 UTC) (permalink)
I missed this on Wednesday, when it came out - but I'm caught up now. Penny Arcade was intrigued by the flexibility of our favorite blue AI, when it comes to connecting to unfamiliar networks. I am too... now.

A full line of Strategy 'products'? Weird.
If you're struggling at any stage of the Halo 4 campaign (or want some tips for the Multiplayer side of things), Prima's got you covered - swing by Halo Waypoint for a press release about the Official Strategy Guide (and the different flavors that are available). (Louis Wu 18:33:00 UTC) (permalink)
Halo 4 Emblem Unlocks
If you're wondering about when you might see new emblems (or what you might need to do to see them), CyReN posted a chart at NeoGAF detailing all of the available Halo 4 emblems (and when most of them unlock). Handy! (Louis Wu 18:31:00 UTC) (permalink)
A console exclusive will stay that way
The PA Report opined on the missed opportunity that Microsoft seems to be okay with - the absence of Halo 4 on the PC. Food for thought! (Louis Wu 18:13:33 UTC) (permalink)
Halo 4 and the DNA of the FPS
Drowned in Sound's Savage Pixels looks at the DNA of the FPS - and how Halo 4 fits into the picture. Interesting read! (There's also sutff you can win at the end of the article... worth sticking it all the way through!)

I'm pretty sure you can't call that 'limited'...
Heh - Chewbaccawakka noticed a funny little egg in Halo 4's campaign (and Beorn helped out with better pics) - looks like a tongue-in-cheek mention by 343 of Halo 4's place in history!

Give me Liberto or Give me Death!
Thanks, Hedgemony for letting us know about some of John Liberto's Halo (and other games) concept artwork up for viewing on the web. Gorgeous stuff!
Update: Hypertrooper pointed out that Liberto's image was one of a series of Editors Picks at CGHub related to Halo today - check out these other amazing pieces:

Rolling Forward with Halo News
Just because it's Launch Week for Halo 4 doesn't mean 343 has skimped on the Halo Bulletin content - a new one was released last night. In it you'll find photos from launch events all over the world, plus breaking news about issues you might have encountered in Halo 4 (and things that might solve them for you), plus info about the first playlist updates, coming soon! (It's local, too, if you'd rather read it here.) (Louis Wu 17:48:35 UTC) (permalink)
