Halo 4 Domain Terminal Library - Open
Scattered throughout the Halo 4 Campaign are Domain Terminals - these are small constructs that provide valuable bits of story information to players who find them. The problem is... the information is not available in-game. When you find one, you're told that it unlocks on Halo Waypoint (both on your Xbox, and in your Campaign Stats on the website)... if you're on Xbox LIVE when you find it. Otherwise, it doesn't unlock at all. So... We've recorded all 7 of the in-game terminals (as well as the prologue terminal that was made available on Waypoint before the game was released), and made them accessible for online viewing as well as downloading. If you have played through the campaign, but didn't find these and are confused about parts of the story - watch them in our Terminal Library and be less confused! (Louis Wu 21:01:02 UTC) (permalink)

The Halo Council's Clicked has another glitch vid for you - this one shows you how to alter the time you remain in a lift, and how to reload the Boltshot super-fast. Here's hoping that last one gets fixed... thanks, CyReN. (Louis Wu 17:16:38 UTC) (permalink)

padraig08 pointed out a new Halo 3 remix on OCRemix - it's a metal-ized remix of three Halo 3 tunes (Finish the Fight, Halo, and Never Forget). Pretty impressive! Go grab a copy. Update: whoa, Nikko B201 pointed out that not only had we already covered this last year, but we're hosting a local copy! Goodness. Steel trap, indeed. (The OCR version has been updated a bit.)

Captain Spark spent a little time in Shutdown's vehicle bay, and recorded 30 Marine audio clips. Some of them are hilarious! (He's not starting up collecting dialogue again... but that doesn't mean we wouldn't set up a page for it if people started submitting clips.)
