Vico shared this never before seen promotional Spartan Ops film by Planet Jump Productions. This is actually the animatic that was shown when 343 demoed Spartan Ops at E3 2012 - I never thought it would see the light of day. Really cool stuff! (mastrbiggy 23:35:54 UTC) (permalink)

A ginormous vehicle
This article in the LA Times is a fascinating look at the Warthog that 343 commissioned from marketing company Antenna. Stop by for behind-the-scenes details, a great photogallery, and the tantalizing tidbit that "buyers with deep pockets may even be able to take home a version of their own"... whoa. Thanks to BS Angel for highlighting this on Waypoint. (Louis Wu 20:32:13 UTC) (permalink)

Update: While you're there, check out the Master Chief (Midori, Jack Daniels, Jager) and the Master Chief Mojito (Bacardi and Mountain Dew). (Louis Wu 20:12:52 UTC) (permalink)
