Back seat scoring
Halo Waypoint has a video called 'Making of the UNSC Raptor: Pt 1' - it shows off what Galpin Auto Sports did to build the custom Ford F150 Raptor that will go to the winner of the Infinity Challenge. (Well... it talks about what they did. You'll have to wait for Part 2 to see the actual modifications.) Thanks, Havok. (Louis Wu 19:52:10 UTC) (permalink)
Breaking Halo 4: Tactical Jetpack Out of Adrift
Nak3d Eli has kicked off a new video series - he calls it 'Breaking Halo 4'. It's all about finding glitches in Matchmaking maps... and the first episode looks at an invisible walkway (well, probably more than one) on Adrift. Normally, we'd stay away from stuff like this, but if you get beaten because of this glitch, you deserve to know what actually happened. Here's hoping it gets fixed soon. Thanks, MrGreencastle.

Skywalker DSP came by with another commentated gameplay vid - this was a four-player custom Regicide game. Fun editing... and entertaining commentary! (Louis Wu 18:51:04 UTC) (permalink)
He's riding his stallion and catching the dream
Our forum had a Secret Santa exchange (completely organized by JDQuackers, I just watched) - and NartFOpc dropped in last night to share his gift. I love you guys. (Louis Wu 18:49:28 UTC) (permalink)
I thought you'd be taller
kornman00 stopped by yesterday to show off a video containing some fun mods for Halo 4. (You can't use these unless you're willing to mod your Xbox 360 - but you can certainly watch videos.) Those monstrous Spartans are awesome! Update: kornman says there was no modded box involved; he was able to tweak gametype parameters that the games UI normally hides. Noice!

Kotaku wants to help you understand shooter montages
Kotaku decided to take a shot at shooter montages - and Tashi's Halo 4 inaugural montage is held up as a 'sincere' example. (In the context of this article, that might not be a good thing.) Agree or not, it's a thought-provoking read. Thanks, Zeouterlimits. (Louis Wu 18:43:52 UTC) (permalink)
FUD Podcast Ep 10: Tidal Waving
The Forward Unto Dawn crew has released another podcast - it's a discussion of the first five episodes of Spartan Ops, with special guest Kete from The Running Riot. Dani's... salty. Thanks, Fuchsdh.

Is he serious?
Tommy92l sent us a link to a video showing some trolling in Halo 4... and some reverse trolling. Always fun when you get surprised!
