The Making of Halo 4's Spartan Ops
IGN has posted another video - this time showing off the development of Halo 4's new cooperative mode, Spartan Ops. Thanks, ElzarTheBam. (colindosaj 23:18:08 UTC) (permalink)
Take a Tour of Harvest
IGN posted a developer walkthrough of Harvest, one of the maps included in the Crimson Map Pack. Looks nice! An interesting question Ryan McCaffrey asked Kynan Pearson was 'how much of this map was affected by user feedback over the past month?' (The answer was 'this map was actually one of the earliest developed maps'... which I guess means 'not very much'.) (colindosaj 23:07:10 UTC) (permalink)
Don't let them lock the doors!
Wow, cool. (Louis Wu 22:01:35 UTC) (permalink)
LASOing the Mammoth
Have you felt like you're spending too much time on Campaign levels? RC Master has released yet another Halo 4 speed run - this one is a LASO run on Reclaimer, in under 18 minutes. Go learn how to whip through that puppy! Update: Link fixed - sorry! (Louis Wu 19:16:15 UTC) (permalink)
Spartan Up Live
Ready Up Live ran through Spartan Ops Episode 4 this weekend - wild, wacky, and willful! (Bonus RvB easter egg location included.) Go watch! (Louis Wu 18:54:05 UTC) (permalink)
Theatrical Halo 4 (Full Campaign and Cutscenes)
The Tyrant let us know that he's got a full run-through of Halo 4 (cutscenes and everything) online - it's a 'theatrical presentation', designed to give you the story as it was intended to be delivered. It's nearly 6 hours long!

Spartan Ops Ep 5 Cinematic - now archived
Spartan Ops Episode 5 is up now on Xbox LIVE - and the cinematic that goes with it is now available in our Spartan Ops Cutscene Library. Thorne REALLY doesn't like following orders, does he? (There's a small stutter around 1:22 in - but it appeared on 5 separate recordings (and it seems to be in a version I found on YouTube, as well), so you may just have to live with it.)

An Unexpected Journey
munky-058 becomes the first HBO regular to hit SR 130. Not sure that's something to be proud of... (Louis Wu 16:18:22 UTC) (permalink)
Hang on, lemme just lick my armor...
NeoGAF's Ken was inspired by the Doritos/Mountain Dew promotion. I love it. (Louis Wu 16:14:56 UTC) (permalink)
At last, ncsuDuncan has released another detailed article focused on Bungie's next big adventure! He covers the last six months of news regarding Destiny and even though the game is still shrouded in secrecy, there is actually quite a bit of information to dissect. It is an extremely interesting read, so check it out! Oh, and while you're there be sure to check out Duncan's other article regarding Bungie's super secret project.

Vanguards of Requiem released a video where they put the Assault Rifle, Storm Rifle, and the Suppressor head to head. The results are pretty interesting! Thanks, TCKaos.
