Harabek's Regicide FFA Tournament
Harabek is hosting a Regicide FFA tournament - top prize is 4000 MS Points! Not too shabby. You can read the details on Facebook (no account needed). Hurry up - he needs to hear from you in the next 5 hours if you're going to participate! (Louis Wu 18:12:15 UTC) (permalink)
Halo 4 Cutscene Library - more releases
I'd like to apologize - I'd meant to post a bunch of new cutscenes from the Halo 4 Cutscene Library yesterday, but got distracted. There are 13 new ones up today, though (all the way through the closing of 'Shutdown'). Go watch! (Louis Wu 16:34:59 UTC) (permalink)
Halo 4 Notebook Competition Results
Last week, we mentioned Shadders' contest to win super-cool Halo-themed Moleskine notebooks - he posted the results yesterday. Congrats to the winners - they were pretty amazing works! (Louis Wu 16:31:26 UTC) (permalink)
Nightline: Making of Hottest New Xbox Game
Last night's Nightline (on ABC) contained a 5+ minute piece on Halo 4 - it focused on Studio Head Bonnie Ross (and so touched on the subject of women in the video game industry), but centered around the idea of video games as the new media blockbusters. Nice to see high-profile press like this! Thanks, jay mee (who found the text-based article summarizing the piece).

Fan-made trailers, from a pair of creators
CMNeir put together a new trailer for Halo 4 - see what you think! Be warned - there's material in here that could be considered spoiler-ish. (Halo Waypoint posted one created by LukeRitson on Thursday - compare 'em! It's as if both guys thought the same clips were critical... except one was released two weeks before the other.)
