Bad Dates and Lottery Plans
There ain't no Halo content in it - but it's a great read anyway, and there are explosions. Go check out the latest Bungie Mail Sack. (Louis Wu 21:07:30 UTC) (permalink)

Crimson Map Pack Walkthrough: Wreckage
IGN's posted their walkthrough of the third Crimson Map Pack map, Wreckage. It looks... well, wrecked. Lots of debris, lots of blue and brown. Lots of particles, sparking circuits, smoke - if you're used to using map motion to find your prey, this one's gonna bug you. (If you're sneaky and like to hide or flank, this map's gonna be a fave.) Thanks, ElzarTheBam. (Louis Wu 18:06:56 UTC) (permalink)

The Big Dumb GUNNER Show, Dec 5, 2012
gunn3r11 sent word that The Spartan Force has kicked off a new YouTube series - it's called The Big Dumb GUNNER Show, and the first episode is online now. It's Halo news from behind a desk. (Hey - I heard about something I didn't know before... Blast Magazine posted a guide to their choices for the best Halo 4 Matchmaking Loadouts. Nice!) (Louis Wu 16:54:27 UTC) (permalink)

Postmortem pointed out a DeviantART gallery of of an artist who did some fantastic work on Halo 4 concept art. Go check it out! (Louis Wu 16:36:23 UTC) (permalink)

Surrounded by stuff... yet isolated.
CruelLEGACEY has posted 'updated impressions' of Halo 4 - it's a followup to his original review. It's an interesting read, with a lot of food for thought. (The 'set piece comparison' vid does a great job of juxtaposing iconic moments from earlier Halos with similar moments in Halo 4.) Go check it out! (Louis Wu 16:34:22 UTC) (permalink)

Easy come, easy go.
That poster Davis Beutler won yesterday? He's selling it. (Louis Wu 16:27:39 UTC) (permalink)

IGN's Tough Love for Spartan Ops
So while IGN is loving War Games, the team that's looking at Spartan Ops isn't quite so enthusiastic. Their latest commentary vid covers Episode 5 - they talk a lot about what doesn't work for them, and how it differs from Firefight. (I found it intriguing that even with all the access IGN gets, these guys, who filmed this on Monday, didn't realize that the second half of the Spartan Ops season would be coming out in January.) Thanks again, CyReN. (Louis Wu 16:25:42 UTC) (permalink)

Halo 4's November US Numbers
NPD's sales numbers for November were released yesterday - Halo 4's US sales for the month hit 3.2 million units. Not too shabby! Thanks, Gesalt. (Louis Wu 16:09:08 UTC) (permalink)

A Fan's Open Letter to 343
RC Master has decided to write an open letter to 343 to explain his feelings about some of the features that didn't make the cut in Halo 4 - if you swing by his post, you can read the 5-page letter, or simply watch a video of him reading it. Some good points in there! (Louis Wu 16:06:30 UTC) (permalink)

IGN shows you Shatter's layout
IGN's second Developer Walkthrough of Shatter, one of the three Crimson Map Pack maps coming out on Monday, went live yesterday. It differs from Wednesday's video by focusing on the map itself - there's no gameplay here. Thanks, CyReN. (Louis Wu 16:04:14 UTC) (permalink)

Halo 4 - A Master Chief Tribute
Dogiojoe sent word of her new video tribute to Master Chief - it contains Halo 4 campaign spoilers, but if you've played through already, it's a nice history of John's augmentation. Music comes from Halo Legends (well, the versions she used does - the song comes from Halo 2). (Louis Wu 15:59:09 UTC) (permalink)
