Maptastrophe - the tributes continue
In 2006, Insidi0us gave us Maptacular - an incredible romp through the original Halo multiplayer maps, with a lot of care on clean transitions and consistent scoring/weapons. A couple of years later, BigV1027 paid tribute with Maptrocity, a similar jaunt through Halo 3 maps. (Not quite as clean, but still a lot of fun.) Today, DefendTheHouse (the folks behind the spectacular Halo Mythbusters videos) released Maptastrophe, their vision of this concept realized in Halo 4. (Thanks, Nando13.) I love the idea. I'm not quite as thrilled with the execution... but judge it for yourself! (Louis Wu 20:03:30 UTC) (permalink)
UrDoingItWrong! Ep 2: Make Love Not War
Clicked released a new UrDoingItWrong video - these are challenges from the community, to be handled in Matchmaking. This one required that he play a game of SWAT without shooting - hugs (erm, punches) only. He does surprisingly well, for a gametype that requires only one headshot to stop him... but his team still loses. A fun watch nonetheless. Thanks, CyReN.
