Halo 4 Screenshot Extractor - on the web
We've mentioned screenshot extractors in the past - but I've never seen a web-based version before. Armor Watcher has a web page that will take a saved screenshot file (that you've grabbed off your Xbox with a USB drive) and yank out the pic for your use in other places. Pretty slick! Thanks, MrGreencastle.

Rockslider posted a couple of videos about Spore Herding - he collected about 150 Flood Infection Forms... and played with them. This is pretty amazing stuff!

A new glyph code - LASO earns you 50k
A new glyph code was unveiled yesterday - and less than an hour later, it was solved. (Thanks to jay mee, who brought the news to our forum.) If you can beat the Halo 4 campaign on Legendary, with all skulls on... you can use this code to earn 50,000 XP (and a special LASO emblem). Awesome! (Louis Wu 18:09:00 UTC) (permalink)

We mentioned a concept drawing of the Didact's head earlier today - there was more Didact-related art out on the web yesterday as well. Over at Kotaku, Kolby Jukes (currently Senior Character Artist for 343) had some of his character work (from a variety of games) highlighted - and there are some awesome Didact pics. Go check 'em out! Thanks, enzo_gt. (Louis Wu 17:48:16 UTC) (permalink)

What ELSE is on the cutting room floor?
More fun content found in the game files (but not actually in-game anywhere) - looks like Jeff Steitzer recorded the line "Stop shooting your teammates!" at one point. (I'm guessing it didn't get put into the game because it's fun enough that folks would shoot their teammates just to hear it...) Thanks to Pok3R Fac3D, who found it on the Halo subreddit.

Waypoint Bullet Points
There were a couple of interesting bits at Halo Waypoint yesterday - a pretty scary concept of the Didact's head, done by Art Director Kenneth Scott, got posted... and an update on the Infinity Challenge went up. Qualifiers are over, we're now into the next round. Check it out - see what you can win! (Louis Wu 17:36:46 UTC) (permalink)

If you like the idea of playing Halo 4 Custom games, but your friends list isn't big enough (or have enough like-minded people) to let this happen regularly, you might want to check out HaloCustoms.com - it's a new website devoted to helping people link up for fun custom games. The Halo Forge Epidemic's PsychoDuck recorded a nice intro to the service recently - go watch! Thanks to ShortBizzle for the heads-up. (Louis Wu 17:34:23 UTC) (permalink)
