Astro True Stories: Team Instinct, Part 2
Headset maker Astro followed pro team Instinct as they played through MLG Dallas 2012 (the first Halo 4 tournament) - part 1 was released way back in May, while Part 2 came out today. Check it! Thanks, Tashi. (Louis Wu 21:23:38 UTC) (permalink)
ThreeRunner, Forerunner, Speedrunner
RC Master let us know about a pretty impressive run on Forerunner, Legendary, with all skulls on - it scared me just watching! The whole thing takes less than 19 minutes. (While you're watching videos, he includes a pair of Spartan Ops No Deaths runs, as well.) (Louis Wu 21:05:17 UTC) (permalink)
What do those buttons do?
Zylon 0217 stopped in with word of a new video, showing off some pretty mysterious buttons that can be found on the level Reclaimer - it's unclear what they do, exactly, but the hints are intriguing! Go watch. (Louis Wu 20:46:58 UTC) (permalink)
Halo 4 Tourney, from Multi-Threat Gaming
MTG Clover X let us know (via HaloGAF's Twitter, actually) that Multi-Threat Gaming is hosting a tournament - top prize is 1600 MS Points. You can read the details on Halo Waypoint's forum, and then register on their Facebook page. (Louis Wu 20:05:01 UTC) (permalink)
Wait... aren't dungeons UNDER things?
Nevin 'CruelLEGACEY' Douglas has kicked off work on Playtime Season 4, and wanted to share a collection of screenshots of a new Forge location he's built for the process. Looks like fun! (Louis Wu 17:51:59 UTC) (permalink)
Waypoint Challenges, More Easily
Firestream created a really useful Challenges service on HaloCharts - and we finally got around to integrating it into our forum. Grabbing the current challenges on Halo Waypoint's site takes a whole bunch of mouseclicks, and a bunch of scrolling. Doing so online is pretty complicated, too. Doing it on our forum is fast and easy! Just check the upper left corner. (If even THAT'S too much loading for you, or you're on a mobile device and that scrollbar is tough to deal with, try this really, really simple page.) (Louis Wu 17:37:36 UTC) (permalink)
Halo 4 Mythbusters Ep 5
The DefentTheHouse crew is back with another episode of MythBusters - and there are some really cool demos in here. Go watch - and be sneaky in matchmaking! Thanks, Lawnmower172. (Louis Wu 17:21:09 UTC) (permalink)
HaloBible gets out of Anniversary's Maw
Jefferson is back with more Halo CE Anniversary tricks, from the HaloBible crew - this time, the montage (and the accompanying tutorial) involves the area outside The Maw. (Not sure I understand the first half of the vid - it's just a standard playthrough of the level up to the point where you launch out. Fine editing, in any case.) Nice work!

Zylon 0217 posted a video of two Grunts having a dance off on the level 'Dawn' - seems they are having a rap battle too! All you have to do is get past the first Elite encounter above the elevator and sneak into the next control room unnoticed. Neat find! (mastrbiggy 08:43:57 UTC) (permalink)
