Will it Blend?
Yep, Blendtec has decided to put Halo 4 to the test. It is actually a fairly amusing video, but beware of the Promethean Smoke! Thanks, Asklon (mastrbiggy 23:04:15 UTC) (permalink)
Harvest CTF Gameplay with Commentary
IGN has released more CTF gameplay on Harvest, one of the new maps coming with the Crimson Map Pack next Monday. This time, 343's Mike Ellis (Design Director) provides the commentary. Thanks, Silly.Mikey. (Louis Wu 19:55:30 UTC) (permalink)
Halo 4's Best Automatic Weapon
Wanna know what automatic weapon is best? Go watch this video by VanguardsOfRequiem. Pretty interesting results! (WubWubWarning) Thanks, Zylon 0217. (Louis Wu 19:48:48 UTC) (permalink)
Crimson Map Pack Achievements Listed
Halo Waypoint has an article listing the new Achievements that will become available when the Crimson Map Pack drops on Monday - give it a look to see what you'll need to do to earn 250 more GamerScore! (Louis Wu 19:22:38 UTC) (permalink)
Warthog for Sale by Owner - Low Miles
Pete Cooper built a Warthog for a fan-driven movie, Operation Chastity. Things have been quite for a bit... and today, bluerunner noticed that Pete's selling the vehicle. I guess that puts a point on the OC project! Bummer. (On the bright side, if you ever wanted a Warthog, this might be your best bet!) (Louis Wu 18:21:43 UTC) (permalink)
Podtacular 333 - now with more War Games
Dust Storm let us know that Podtacular 333 is out - it's an interview with 343's Kevin Franklin (Competitive Multiplayer Lead Designer for Halo 4) about upcoming changes, future vision for Wargames, and more. What are you waiting for? Go listen! Update: there are a couple of summaries on NeoGAF if you don't have time to listen to the whole 'cast: Tashi did one, enzo_gt did the other.

Leave Out All the Rest
AssaultGodzilla's back, with a remake of a vid he did in 2010. Same song, new footage. As always, great attention to detail. Interesting juxtaposition of Spartans/Elites. Go watch! (Louis Wu 16:09:30 UTC) (permalink)
Earning the Ep 5 SpOps Cheevos
The fifth Spartan Ops episode gives you options for 3 separate Achievements - and two of them have caused people a little bit of trouble. MixMaker1 put together a video showing you what you REALLY need to do to earn each one - worth a look! (Louis Wu 16:07:34 UTC) (permalink)
Out of the Cauldron...
Chuckthelittlealien found a hole in the boundaries surrounding the final Chapter of yesterday's Spartan Ops episode - check out his video to see how to get out of The Cauldron! (Not sure he meant this in a clever way, but I loved how he ended the video 'into the fire'.) (Louis Wu 16:03:54 UTC) (permalink)
Bite off more than you can chew - then readjust.
Xbox360Magazine has an interview with Kiki Wolfkill in their latest issue; this isn't actually online for free (they're selling it, after all), but the teaser has a couple of choice quotes that cast an interesting light on the thought process of 343. Thanks to Shadders, who found this at GameRanx. (Louis Wu 16:00:11 UTC) (permalink)
Retooling the Playlists - a suggestion
CyReN put together a visual guide to some Playlist changes he thinks would make Halo 4 Matchmaking better... go give it a read! (Louis Wu 15:54:04 UTC) (permalink)
Binary Slayer - Thrust and Kill
IGN released a video showing you how to create a custom gametype called 'Binary Slayer' - this one is played around the 343 office, and looks to be frenetic (and likely frustrating at times). Hopefully, the day will come soon when we can point you to a Fileshare download link for gametypes like this. Thanks to Ryan McCaffrey for the heads-up on NeoGAF. (Louis Wu 15:52:07 UTC) (permalink)
Halo Fix: Halo 4 Top 5 Ep 1
Halo Fix released their first Halo 4 Top 5 video yesterday - I'm not sure about the order, but the clips were fun to watch. Just three and a half minutes - go see! (Louis Wu 15:50:18 UTC) (permalink)
