The Environment Art of Halo 4
Polycount has an article put together by members of 343's Environment Art team - it talks about they went about building those oh-so-pretty environments we've been playing through. Great read! Thanks, TDSpiral. (Louis Wu 21:14:45 UTC) (permalink)
New Halo 4 Concept Art

Halo 4 Screenshots - on your computer
HaLo2FrEeEk stopped in to announce that he's updated his Halo Screenshot Extractor (read about it on his site) - it now supports grabbing screenshots en masse from Halo 3, ODST, Reach: Beta, Reach, and Halo 4. Nice! (Especially nice since the official tools don't exist yet!) It's a Windows executable, and the source code is available, too.

Spartan Ops Ep 3 Cinematic - now archived
The latest Episode of Spartan Ops went live yesterday, but I was unsuccessful in my attempts to capture the opening cinematic until this morning (probably network issues). Bottom line, though, is the Episode 3 Cinematic is now available, in a variety of streaming and downloadable formats, in our Cutscene Library - go watch it! (I tried to watch it on YouTube yesterday as well, but the Elite subtitles would not show up for me; I had no idea what they were saying. Our copies do not suffer from this problem.)

Guilt O' Lantern Contest: Results
Nearly a thousand people weighed in on our pumpkins this year (a far cry from the almost 6,000 in 2005, but still a respectable number) - and they've spoken. Third place was decided by a mere 5 votes! (This was close enough that we're going to send a little something-something to padraig08, who ALMOST came in 3rd.) Go check out the full results. And thanks for helping! (Louis Wu 14:04:09 UTC) (permalink)
